Tell us the whole truth.

David Frum (!) highlights some nightmarish aspects of the DREAM Act:
Possibility No. 1: You are an illegal alien who entered the country at age 21, too old to qualify for DREAM. Youve been apprehended and are threatened with deportation. What to do? Simple using falsified papers, you file an application under DREAM anyway. Filing an application immediately halts deportation proceedings.
Wait a minute, you wonder: wont using false papers get me in trouble? Not a bit. Just the opposite. Even if the fraud is detected and your application is refused, you simply revert to your previous status. In the process, however, you have gained a new legal advantage: DREAM forbids the Department of Homeland Security from using any information in a DREAM application in deportation proceedings. So now you argue that the deportation proceedings are fatally tainted because you have yourself provided DHS with information that they could now use against you.
The ploy might fail. Still: what a great no-risk option!
Possibility No. 2: Youre a 40-year-old illegal alien who entered the country as an adult. You have a third-grade education. You are barely literate even in Spanish. Your back is bothering you; you are not sure how long you can continue working. Quite frankly, no country on earth would regard you as a desirable immigrant. Dont despair. DREAM can offer you too an amnesty and gain you access to a lifetime of taxpayer-funded disability payments.
You have kids dont you? If they apply successfully under DREAM, they can sponsor you. While some talk about DREAM applicants as skilled immigrants, in fact the laws requirements are so lenient that your kids would have to mess up very seriously to forfeit the laws benefits. All they need to do is enroll in some institution of higher learning or the military and survive there for two years. Graduation is not required.
