DREAM Act Could Cost Taxpayers Big

Well, what do think will happen when a ton of illegals are given amnesty?

A group advocating for tighter immigration laws estimates that a hotly debated bill that would give tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who attend college or join the military a path to legal status would cost taxpayers $6.2 billion a year and “crowd out” U.S. students in the classroom.

A new report from the Center for Immigration Studies says the so-called DREAM Act, which would give more than 2 million young immigrants brought to the United States before the age of 16 a chance to become legal residents, could erode the educational opportunities available to U.S. citizens.

Of course, Janet Incompotado says the cost is no big deal, and doesn’t matter anymore. Democrats want even more idiot voters, and to make sure those who already vote stay stupid.

    Here is a Dream Act I could vote for.

    1) Serve in active military in a war area for 5 years. Must be in a gun-wielding form of duty. Not kitchen staff or paper-pusher.

    2) Enroll, pay full tuition without any federal or state assistance, and complete a degree in Science, Mathematics or Engineering field.

    3) Spend 5 years building the southern border fence as a registered guest worker. Any mishaps with the law will mean immediate disqualification.

  2. I could live with that.

    I disagree with this one. After all, we need intel sources as well as translators. People that maintain B-2’s are not in combat zones, but yet are vital. Coast Guard service is not in a war zone.

    I understand the sentiment, but basically I think it demeans a lot of the servicemen and women who currently serve admirably in non-combat zones. Their work and support is often just as vital as those carrying a weapon on a front somewhere.

    2) Enroll, pay full tuition without any federal or state assistance, and complete a degree in Science, Mathematics or Engineering field.

    Why disqualify Arts degrees? If someone wants to have an English degree, I have no issues with that. If someone wants to have a teaching degree, I have no issue with that either.

    I understand your sentiment and I don’t disagree with the idea of service or education for citizenship although currently both indentured servitude and peonage is against the law – both international and American.
