After several false starts Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) continues to push the DREAM Act. What is the DREAM Act?
A nightmare.

The act would have allowed any illegal immigrant who entered the country before the age of 16 to receive conditional residency, which could then be converted to a non-conditional residency. These illegal immigrants can apply for this form of amnesty so long as they are under 30 and they weren’t older than 16 when they came to the country. And, of course, there is no way of proving when they illegally entered our country. After all, they are undocumented. Aliens would qualify even if they received and ignored a removal order if that order was received before they were 16.

Essentially, the DREAM Act puts some illegal aliens in a better position for residency than legal aliens who have played by the rules.

In addition to this stealth amnesty, the DREAM Act, would repeal a portion of the 1996 federal immigration law that prohibits any state from offering in-state college tuition rates to illegal aliens.

From The Heritage Foundation:

Just three months after the Senate immigration bill met its well-deserved end, amnesty advocates in the U.S. Congress resumed their efforts. Recently, Senator Richard Durbin (D–IL) announced on the Senate floor his intention to offer the Development, Relief, and Edu?cation for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act as an amend?ment to the defense authorization bill.

I have, as of this posting, 73 pieces discussing the illegal immigration issue and therein, one will find the evidence of the Leftinistra trying to buy votes for their failing party. That is what this Shamnesty garbage is all about...a new voter base. They have not learned and will sneak back again!
