Is the DREAM Act stealth amnesty still on? The time is short in the Lame Duck session of Congress, but never trust the treacherous Raza Democrats and Republicans: they are keen to screw the American people with a big reward to lawbreaking foreigners and their supporters. Senator Harry Reid in particular is expected to use his powerful position as Senate Leader to ram through the stinker legislation, which has been unpassable for a decade in regular sessions, despite its sentimental appeal to The Children â€” one of the billâ€™s many lies. The anti-borders legislators cannot be trusted and must be watched constantly.
Of course there are many more pressing issues upon which to be voted, but real needs have never been a concern of the Obama administration, as shown be his inaction on vital topics â€” like the economy and jobs.
Meanwhile, Senator Sessions has mounted an opposition to the Big Lie amnesty for millions by sending around a fact sheet about whatâ€™s really in the bill. See Ten Things You Need To Know About S.3827, The Dream Act, and also Moonbatteryâ€™s simplified list.
SpeaKing of lists, hereâ€™s Roy Beckâ€™s tabulation of Senators who should be called because of wobbliness on amnesty. Sadly, American sovereignty is not safe as long as the current Congress is in session.
GOP readies for DREAM Act fight, Politico, November 22, 2010
Senate Republicans and their conservative allies are sharpening their attacks on the proposed DREAM Act that would provide a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants, declaring it would give â€?amnestyâ€? to millions â€” some of them criminals.
The legislation, which would apply to undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, has been overshadowed by other big-ticket items on the lame-duck congressional calendar. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are now pushing for votes on it this year.
Already, GOP staffers have begun circulating to senators and conservative groups a white paper outlining what they see as the social and financial costs of passing the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act.
â€?In addition to immediately putting an estimated 2.1 million illegal immigrants (including certain criminal aliens) on a path to citizenship, the DREAM Act would give them access to in-state tuition rates at public universities, federal student loans and federal work-study programs,â€? said the research paper, being distributed by Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The paper adds that those who obtain legal status under the DREAM Act would have the right to seek naturalization for their family members, including the parents who illegally brought them to the U.S. as children.
â€?In less than a decade, this reality could easily double or triple the more than 2.1 million green cards that will be immediately distributed as a result of the DREAM Act,â€? the paper states.
Interestingly, a Gallup poll released today found the DREAM Act ranked dead last in a list of six issues that the public wants handled under Lame Duck consideration.
The Fox News report below mentions that under the DREAM Act as many as six million might be amnestied â€” more than twice as many as the 1986 Reagan Amnesty.
