"He [Reid] won with the help of Hispanic voters..."

Well, THERE IT IS. It is his way of thanking his Hispanic voters, even when he knows it will fail in the Senate. He needs to "just seem like he is doing something for Hispanics," even if he knows it is moot. WHAT A POLTITICIAN!!!

He sure fooled all you Nevadan Hispanic voters, didn't he? I can't believe you guys voted for this career politician. Maybe it's time you Hispanic Nevadans start studying the psychology of career politicians; maybe then you can start casting your vote wisely.

How many times has Reid tried to bring up the DREAM Act? 3? 4? He couldn't get it through the Senate even if the Senate had almost 50% Democrats. Then, after the midterm elections, many Democrat senators who are up for re-election in 2012 now want to distance themselves from the ultra-liberal agenda of their party. In other words, if any bill proposed will in any way, shape, or form threaten US jobs, they are going to bail.

This is Reid's last chance (thank God!). Come January 2011, he will not have the Democrat numbers he once had. I predict he will fail AGAIN.

After this try, Reid will not be able to bring the DREAM Act up again. At least not till 2012. THANK GOD. I am so sick of this broken record AND HIS STUBBORN REFUSAL TO LISTEN TO WE THE PEOPLE. If he is more interested in the plight of illegal aliens in today's recession, THEN TO HELL WITH HIM. No one -- except for Pelosi and Obama -- are more out of touch with American reality.

Harry Reid will either sink or swin with the amnesty carrot he has dangled in front of the noses of the illegals. His one dimension campaign - Amnesty - has carried him thus far, IMO this is where it will be brought to a halt.
Without being able to deliver his promised goods I wonder how long it will take for the feeding frenzy to begin when the sharks start to circle around his useless carcass.

pro-illegals like reid are dumb.

the more they try to force amnesty down our throats, the more opposition to their cause will increase.

after this next attempt by reid to push amnesty down our throats, we will see legislation to stop anchor babies. we will see deportations increase. we might even see a bounty put on every illegal alien caught.

americans are sick of illegals.

Hey, you guys, let's get serious. We know our congresspeople to be fickle. What I mean is that the Dreamers are waging an unrelenting fax, mail, email, phone call campaign to Congress. Get off you butts and do the same! Let's beat this Dreamer puppy to the earth, never to rise again!!!

Don't lull yourselves into thinking that this will happen without your participation. Get on the phone, etc., and express your views. Also, tell them that their days in office are numbered if they even think of voting for the Dream ACT!...and mean it!

With the deficit what it is, with unemployment at an all time high, with terrorism being one of our top priorities, and we are stripped naked as we try to fly, this turkey is trying to burden the tax payers even more with being a advocate of illegal aliens who want to go to college and become American citizens!

The Dream Act doesn't benefit Americans in any way, it just benefits illegal Aliens. Every illegal alien who gets into college takes the space of an American citizen. They say that the college cost for federal aid will only include loans and College Work Study. Yeah, on the loans, legal children are having problem paying back their college loans because of wage decreases and unemployment, so we know where that one is going. Illegal aliens say that with the College Work Study program that means that they will work for what they earn to pay college tuition. What they don't tell you is that each college is given a limited amount of federal College Work Study funds for students to earn. Therefore, even if you earn it, you are taking the opportunity/money from LEGAL citizens to earn!

They say that they will join the military,but the military doesn't need them. The US Army has exceeded its recruitment quotas for the past several years!!! In times of high unemployment, our young people are enlisting as a means to support their families. If illegal aliens are given the opportunity to join, thus another layer to short-circuit our citizens to earn a living.

They say that illegal aliens are good for the economy. Yet, they NEVER cite examples of this! I can only look at California and the wretchedness it has become, or L.A., and Bell, as examples of what a state/city becomes when it has been taken over by illegal aliens, or Mexicans who want to perserve their culture and not assimilate as Americans. They have become corrupt (Bell), and are going bankrupt...just like Mexico!

At the age of 21, Dreamers will have the opportunity to bring over uncle, aunt, grandma, cousins, etc. WHICH MEANS THAT THIS IS NOTHING BUT A SLY WAY TO HAVE BLANKET AMNESTY!!!!

Also, the Dream Act merely requires that the applicant "certify" that they are of good moral character. This is a slap in the face to EVERY American. Why are you going to rely on someone's certification who has been breaking the law through illegal migration, social security fraud, welfare fraud, etc.?

AMERICA, GET OFF YOUR BUTTS!!! CALL, WRITE, EMAIL YOUR CONGRESSPERSONS AND TELL THEM NO!!!! ON THE DREAM ACT...THE DREAMERS ARE DOING THIS NOW, AS WE SLEEP! WAKE UP AMERICA, THIS DOESN'T TAKE MUCH OF YOUR TIME TO DO!!!

23 Democrats will come up for re election in 2012. It will be interesting to see how they vote with regard to Amnesty for illegal aliens. Every vote they cast between now, and the 2012 election will be remembered by the American voters.

It's nothing more than buying votes and future supporters for the Party. The American public will not allow this to stand. Dirty Harry is the biggest Traitor America has seen since Benedict Arnold. I hope that it gets shut down FAST. No AMNESTY

If you take the time to read the details in the Dream Act it will chill you to the bone.

It is the most sweeping betrayal of the public trust imaginable.

The DEVIL is in the Details Unless you are from some loserville Blue State, be sure to call your Congressperson and demand that they at least READ it before voting for it. Let them know you are holding them accountable if it is more than advertised.
