Democrats Pushing DREAM Act Again

The sob stories will, again, be epic. Of course, this is also a “jobs” bill

The last time the Obama administration made a hard push to legalize some of the children of illegal immigrants, officials focused on some of the inspirational and sympathetic stories of honor students who could gain legal status through the DREAM Act.

As Democrats renew their push for that act in a Senate hearing Tuesday, the sales pitch will also focus on how those children can help the nation’s foundering economy.

How so?

Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Monday he will continue to support passage of the law by explaining how the hundreds of thousands of people who could benefit from the act would contribute to the economy.

Because they would be getting better jobs, they’d be paying more taxes, starting businesses and creating jobs, all of which would infuse a much-needed kick-start to the economy and help drive down the national debt, Duncan said.

Hey, I have a wonderful idea: how about we reserve those “better jobs” for actual American citizens first? Of course, this is simply a silly talking point, one which anyone with half a brain (leaving most liberals out) knows is canard: if the jobs were there, they would be filled already by Americans, instead of seeing an unemployment rate of 9.1%, with large numbers of Americans having dropped out of the workforce. The idea is simply to sob story their way into giving amnesty to illegal aliens. We all know that the supposed pathway to citizenship, which would require college (probably paid for by the government in the first place) or military service, keeping a clean record, and learning English, waiting in line, paying fines, would quickly move to “OK, you’re a citizen, and, it would be terrible to deport your parents, so, we’ll make them citizens, too.”

Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat who has spent years trying to pass the DREAM Act, said Monday he doubts he has the votes needed to get it passed through the Senate. But he’s sponsoring the bill again because enough Republicans have told him privately that there are ways they could support it, so he’s confident a compromise can be reached even though so many other immigration-related issues remain divisive.

“I always felt it was kind of in a special category,” Durbin said. “I face these young people all the time and I can’t turn around and I can’t quit.”

So, let me get this straight: a United States Senator, charged with an oath to uphold the Constitution, meaning The Law, is admitting to consorting with law breakers without turning them in?

Senate Democrats know this legislation will go nowhere. If it passes the Senate, it will be shot down in the House. It is simply a way to attempt to patronize Hispanics.

Meanwhile, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has signed SC’s illegal immigration legislation, that strengthens their already existing laws.

And in Atlanta, a bunch of young illegal immigrants plan on rallying and agitating at the Capital building, and will declare their immigration status. In a sane system, ICE, along with all sorts of law enforcement, would be there to arrest them and put them on a plane out of the US immediately.

    Crap. Now where did I put “that sane system” at? It was here a few years ago?! Great, now we can’t go anywhere without it. We’re stuck until its found again.

    The problem with this selective enforcement is that it is a violation of the 14th Amendment.

    Picking and choosing who to prosecute is never a good idea and outside the realm of “discretion.”
