In a news conference Wednesday morning House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) did not rule out support for the tenets of the Dream Act, saying a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children is "worthy of consideration."

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) embraced the philosophy of the Dream Act Tuesday, saying in a speech at the American Enterprise Institute, "It is time to provide an opportunity for legal residence and citizenship for those who were brought to this country as children and who know no other home.”
