Senate Republicans on Saturday doomed an effort that would have given hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants a path to legal status if they enrolled in college or joined the military.

The article quotes Obama: "A minority of senators prevented the Senate from doing what most Americans understand is best for the country," Obama said. "There was simply no reason not to pass this important legislation."

Can anyone be more treasonous? Can anyone else be as deaf to the will of the American people? There was every reason to NOT pass that treasonous legislation - the current, just and valid laws of our country and the will of the American people. Not to mention USA national sovereignty - dirty words to a fascist like Obama.

Another quote: "This is a dark day in America," said Jorge-Mario Cabrera, a spokesman for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights in Los Angeles. "The Senate has ... thrown under the bus the lives and hard work of thousands and thousands of students who love this country like their own home, and, in fact, they have no other home."

This jerk is in error. It was a brighter day for Americans in America. It was a dark day for illegal aliens who want to destroy America. The Senate has thrown the correct sector of the population - the illegal sector - under the bus, for a welcome change.

He had it right the first time -'like their own home.' He caught himself telling the truth, then fudged. Of course illegals have another home. They have full citizenship in their countries of origin - where they were born. Even anchor babies have dual citizenship. American citizens, however, don't have that luxury or the criminal natures to sneak into other countries to demand what they don't deserve or are not entitled to there.

It really doesn't matter anyway, because while everyone was focused on the DREAM Act, the traitor Napolitano was committing another act of treason in Mexico. Nappy signed an agreement with Mexico that permits the Mexican government to issue 'preferred traveler' cards to all Mexicans that allows all card holders to travel, work and live in the USA whenever they please.

Another backdoor amnesty for Mexicans. Another bloodless coup against American citizens. Time to rise up and oppose the enemy fascists, America. They won't take NO for an answer. They want to kill the USA and create a borderless North American Union - they've planned it for decades.

No reason? Did he not get the memo?

Sen. Sessions outlined 10 reasons why the Senate should reject the DREAM Act:
•The DREAM Act Is NOT Limited to Children -- Applicants can be up to the age of 29
•The DREAM Act Will Be Funded On the Backs Of Hard Working, Law-Abiding Americans -- CBO failed to assess costs for education, increased levels of unemployment due to the addition of workers to the workforce, and increases in potential applicants because of loopholes.
•The DREAM Act PROVIDES SAFE HARBOR FOR ANY ALIEN, Including Criminals, From Being Removed or Deported If They Simply Submit An Application -- Burden of proving inaccurate information on a DREAM Act application is on the Department of Homeland Security.
•Certain Inadmissible Aliens, including those from high-risk regions, Will Be Eligible For Amnesty Under The DREAM Act
•Certain Criminal Aliens—including drunk drivers—Will Be Eligible For Amnesty Under The DREAM Act -- The DREAM Act allows applicants be convicted of 1 felony or up to 3 misdemeanors.
•Conservative Estimates Suggest That At Least 1.3 Million Illegal Aliens Will Be Eligible For the DREAM Act Amnesty. In Reality, We Have No Idea How Many Illegal Aliens Will Apply
•The DREAM Act Does Not Require That An Illegal Alien Finish Any Type of Degree (Vocational, Two-Year, or Bachelor’s Degree) As A Condition of Amnesty -- The applicant only has to complete the equivalent of two years of college.
•The DREAM Act Does Not Require That an Illegal Alien Complete Military Service As A Condition For Amnesty, and There Is already A Legal Process In Place For Illegal Aliens to Obtain U.S. Citizenship Through Military Service
•Despite Their Current Illegal Status, DREAM Act Aliens Will Be Given All The Rights That Legal Immigrants Receive—Including The Legal Right To Sponsor Their Parents and Extended Family Members For Immigration
•Current Illegal Aliens Will Get Federal Student Loans, Federal Work Study Programs, and Other Forms of Federal Financial Aid

Thank you so much for mentioning the preferred traveler permit that doesn't seem to have gotten much press coverage. I was astounded when I learned of it. It makes no sense. Here they are trying to curb the drug trafficing, and they do something like this. Since this isn't a law, I believe we can do something to rescind it.

Imagine, Mexicans get a free pass to US, and our citizens are being x-rayed and gropped.

Why would you allow something like this for a known corrupt government? I am so sick of hearing our leader talk about this downpayment bs. If anything, they owe us!

Wake up America!!!

Also, I am so mistrustful of our government that whenever they are trying to focus our attention on something, I become suspicious because they are trying to deflect our attention on something that they are trying to pull off. Unfortunate that we have come to this.

At a time when so many citizens can not even afford to pay for their own children's education how is it right to expect us to pay for the education of those who are in the country illegally.
When you compare illegal immigrants to slavery you are minimizing what the slaves went through. Slaves were American citizens illegal immigrants are not.

I am surprised to see that "Independant Patriot" is still peddling the myth about the "preferred traveler" program. At first I thought she was just misinformed, but this has already been debunked on other threads.

The Global Entry program is intended for business people who frequently travel internationally. It is administrated by Homeland Security and the Mexican government has no involvement at all. Global Entry was put in place in 2008 by a previous administration.

Applicants undergo a thorough background check against criminal, law enforcement, customs, immigration, and terrorist databases; a 10-fingerprint law enforcement check; and a personal interview with a US Customs and Border Patrol officer. Applicants must also provide financial records incluing tax returns, five years of employment history and mortgage or rent receipts. There is an application fee and the card is only valid for five years.

Having been through the Global Entry application process, I can assure you that it is more thorough than anything you would encounter at a border entry point.

The card can only be used at 20 US airports. It can not be used at any Mexican border crossings.

The program would offer absolutely no advantage to somebody trying to enter the country illegally and it does not exempt anybody from security screenings.

If Americans didn't run up their credit cards, buy homes they cannot afford, & max out their available credit then maybe they could afford to put their kids through school.

I can assure you that the comparison between illegals & slaves is regarding the FACT that keeping a group of people in this Nation uneducated makes it easier to exploit.

Sorry you're flew off into right field on that one!

Preferred travelers are obviously people with passports. If they're documented people then the USA is aware they're here & it's being done in a lawful manner.

Apparently Independent Patriot also has issues with Mexicans traveling in the USA in a lawful & legal manner as well.

Makes you wonder if her agenda is more than just about illegal immigrants.

That WAS a spin.
It was a lame duck session. Many of those congressmen have already been fired in the recent election and the rest were put on notice for NOT doing what the American people wanted.

77% of Americans are in favor of deportation. Amnesty is not going to happen and the people in congress finally DID listen to the American people.

The entire article is a spin. "Education, Senate Republicans on Saturday doomed an effort that would have given hundred of thousands of young illegal immigrants.........." A better article would have read Saturday Democrats joined with Republicans and voted down the most recent attempt at amnesty for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants in answer to the fact that statistics show Americans don't want amnesty and realize that we can no longer afford to provide services to Americans because the illegals are costing us so much. There's your facts.

What bullcrap. Mexico can issue 84 million cards, and there aren't 84 million business people in all of Mexico. LMAO. MEXICO gets to hand out those card, sparky. The USA won't. Mexico can give those cards to anyone they choose. Don't believe everything you read on a government website. Fascists control the federal government and all info and disinfo coming out of it.

The preferred traveler passes are exactly outlined by the CFR in their fascist manifesto, "Building a North American Community."

Read it.

Are you really that delusional or is it an act?

Once again. Real slow. There is no such thing as a "preferred traveler" card.

There is a Global Entry card. The program is administered by Homeland Security. They issue cards to qualified applicants. All the card does is get you on a faster passport line at a limited number of airports.

Mexico has no involvement with the program. They can not issue cards.

I am not relying on a government website. I went through the process and have a Global Entry card. If you have any first hand knowledge, feel free to share it.

I have always been suspect of people who can not defend their position without telling the truth.

"In a further indication that the "North American Union" agenda is quietly proceeding under what remains of the Security and Prosperity Partnership initiative in the Obama administration, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano signed an agreement in Mexico with little fanfare that would extend special "trusted traveler" access to the U.S. to an estimated 84 million Mexicans.

'In Mexico City, Secretary Napolitano and Mexican Ministry of the Interior Secretary José Francisco Blake Mora signed an agreement expressing their intent to develop a Global Entry international trusted traveler pilot program between the United States and Mexico – leveraging the success of the United States' Global Entry program to facilitate secure, legitimate travel between the two nations," announced a DHS statement Nov. 30.'"

Mexican citizens will soon be eligible to apply for a "trusted traveler" status that will allow them to bypass some elements of airport security when they fly into the United States — a U.S. government-approved program that critics say could be exploited by violent drug cartels.
Under the program, Mexicans who have undergone background checks and are deemed low security risks will be able to fly into major U.S. cities and breeze through customs without being questioned by U.S. Customs agents.

The so-called "Trusted Traveler" program is an expansion of a 2008 program called the "Global Entry Program" that speeds up the entry process for some passengers who have been pre-screened.

To participate in the program, Mexican citizens need to pay a $100 application fee and pass a security check by U.S and Mexican authorities. Once approved, their information - including biometric data - is entered into a database that is checked daily. Membership in the program is good for five years.
