Testimony For The DREAM Act Brings A Major “WTF?” Moment

And when I say “WTF”, I’m not referring to Obama’s “Winning The Future” talking point.

Asked by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) whether the Obama administration would consider amendments to the DREAM Act making individuals ineligible for legal status if they were convicted of certain misdemeanors, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Tuesday’s congressional hearing was not the right venue to “go into some of the actual details” of the legislation.

Cornyn continued to beat Napolitano around for a while, then moved on to Arne Duncun, because it’s highly important to our legal and security systems to have the Education Sec. testify about illegal immigration

Education Secretary Arne Duncan also testified at the hearing about how illegal aliens — including a group of young people invited to the hearing — would contribute to the economy and federal revenues. Duncan called the DREAM Act “common-sense” legislation.

“The DREAM Act is a common-sense piece of legislation that is in keeping with core American values,” Duncan said in his prepared remarks. “It goes against our basic sense of fairness to shut the educational door to young people because of the choices of their parents.”

It goes against what our country is about, a nation of laws, not a nation of men, to look towards giving amnesty to the children of illegals, especially since we all know that once the children are on their “pathway to citizenship,” their parents will be given special status, as well.

But, it is the very next paragraph that brings the “say what!?” moment

Some of the parents of the illegal immigrants were also in the hearing room.

If the kids are illegal aliens, it’s a sure bet that the parents are ……. illegal aliens! Why in the heck weren’t they immediately and  summarily arrested and detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and put on a pathway to deportation?

    The really sad thing about all of this is that you can’t make this kind of stuff up. If it wasn’t happening right before my eyes, I wouldn’t believe a bit of it. Unfortunately, it is happening.

    Because our nation is no longer based on laws. It is based on corruption, cronyism and kickbacks. They won’t do what is right out fear of looking bad.

    I tell you what though, if they had done the right thing and arrested them, that would have sent a HUGE message to the illegal felons that they can’t hide in plain sight any more.

    But then, no administration has had the guts in a very long time to do what is right.

    Umm isn’t that what hearings are for? To get actual details of legislation.

    Oh, I forget we need to pass legislation to find out what is in it.
