Fight this job killing bill.

There is no no enforcement- no one is going to check millions of illegals to make sure they graduated from high school.(Buy a degree dot com). My town has several "real" charter schools that have went under and their graduates can not get a copy of their diploma or transcript. The government had to call people out of retirement when Americans needed passports for travel to Canada and Mexico. There is nothing in place to verify a 2.1 million core dump of illegals. They don't intend to.

2.1 million illegals will be given 10 year work permits- at a time of record high unemployment.

Do you really think the government who currently gives a massive number of deportation waivers- of known illegals , is going to look for these people 10 years later and make sure they have completed 2 years of college or military?

How many of their own kids will they have by then, that they will use as their humanitarian reason to not be deported?

Stop this job killing bill
Free is free

The GOP's constituency isn't DREAM Act beneficiaries, it's citizens. Nixing the DREAM Act only serves to minimize any possible gains in voter populace Dems might make over the next several years and they know it.

Killing this act costs Republicans nothing.
