Republicans and the Dream Act - Killing the Dream

Apr 22, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: National Ledger

They sound like a group custom-built and poll-tested to appeal to Republicans: hardworking youngsters with a powerful attachment to America, upright habits and a thirst to join the Army or enroll at State U. But the potential beneficiaries of the Dream Act are getting no love from the GOP.

Kill the dream act. It's nothing but a backdoor amnesty for illegal aliens and a tool for them to chain migrate all their unqualified relatives.

I wouldn't even go 23. At 18 you are an adult.

You know if it went down like that, where they couldn't sponsor their family, they'd be crying in no time and some moron, bleeding heart liberal would change it so they could.

I'd also make it so that the rest of their illegal family would *have* to leave the country and not return in order for the "child" to have anything. See just how badly they wanted to give their kids a better life. If they did, they'd be more than willing to leave and not return.

thats exactly the point, this isnt about making a better life for the kids, its about chain migration. MOst, if not all of the family is already here. During the first dream act push a few years ago , hillary entered a amendment to the bill, which they already knew would not pass, to update the amout of "family" members the student could sponsor,she requested each one could sponsor 44 family members. And if you read it, the defination of "family" member extended well into the relm of 1/2 cousin removed from uncle jose's 1/2 brother.

Any amnesty in the face of our sagging economy is a clear justification and acceptance of mass criminal activity and conduct by significant groups of foreign nationals who are knowingly invading our nation and robbing it's citizens.....

While I feel for the (mostly) Latino kids, I hope the Repukes opposition remains front and center. Maybe Romney can get his Latino support down to 10%. That would make the President's reelection damn near assured.

No amnesty until all our people who want a job is working, paying taxes to the U S, not getting cash, and shipping it to another country. We are supposed to be a law abiding country. We have immigration laws, and the Democrats want to ignore them so they can have some new voters. Enough already!!

Is he the one who doesn't know the difference between yes and no driving those mules to the borax miner...? The one that might know the difference between yes and no as you may think?

You talkin''bout that trade coat California Democrat turned Republican that nearly got his butt indicted, if not for his USMC fall guy? The RINOs are constantly pulling him out of their rear-ends.

Sorry, The American Dream is meant for Americans, not illegal interlopers. I am sorry that they are in a precarious position, but that position was a direct result of their parents' actions. They can take it up with them.

Only an ignoramus would make the ABSURD claim that the constitution of the USA even mentions any 'god' let alone the moronic claim it the USA in 'a nation under god and according to his law.'

The Constitution of the USA is a 100% totally secular document.
