Young supporters vow to keep fighting for DREAM Act | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Breaking News for Dallas-Fort Worth | Dallas Morning News: After the U.S. Senate killed the DREAM Act on Saturday, its young supporters vowed to continue the fight.

'It's a heartbreaking loss, but we're going to keep fighting for it,' said Him Ranjit, a University of Texas at Austin student who was in Washington, D.C., on Saturday to support the legislation.

'I've never seen the Senate chambers that full,' he said of students who were present to witness the vote. 'We were holding hands and praying and hoping for the best.'

Ranjit, who came to Texas from Nepal, said he would struggle to continue his biomedical engineering studies without the financial support that students who are citizens typically receive.
