Anyone heard of the DREAM Act? If I were to tell you that it was sponsored by Sen. Dick “Turban” Durbin (Terrorsymp, IL), that it provides amnesty for illegal aliens, and that the Senate is voting on it TODAY, would that help you get off your asses and call your Senators’ offices? Some details (more here):

Senators will consider an amendment (SA 2237) sponsored by Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), which is the DREAM Act. The gist of this proposal, which has been offered by Durbin the past few legislative sessions as a stand-alone bill (including this session as S. 774), is that DHS would be authorized to cancel removal for, or adjust to lawful permanent resident status (in other words, grant amnesty to), an alien who is inadmissible or deportable in cases where the alien demonstrated that he/she:
  • has maintained continuous presence in the United States for five years and was not yet 16 years old upon initial entry;
  • is of “good moral character” and is not inadmissible or deportable on certain criminal grounds or on the basis of being a risk to national security; and
  • has been admitted to an institution of higher education, has attained a high school diploma, or has obtained a GED in the United States.
The DREAM Act also would grant amnesty to illegal aliens who satisfy these criteria as of enactment.

A gaping loophole exists, however, in this iteration of the DREAM Act, for there is no upper age limit. As a result, any illegal alien can walk into a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office and declare that he is eligible. For example, a 45-year-old can claim that he illegally entered the United States 30 years ago at the age of 15. There is no requirement that the alien prove that he entered the United States at the claimed time by providing particular documents. The proposal merely requires him to “demonstrate” that he is eligible-which in practice could mean simply making a sworn statement to that effect. Thus, it is an invitation for just about every illegal alien to fraudulently claim the amnesty.
Crap. This foul piece of legislative legerdemain has to fall.
Call your Senators nowSchultzie suggests calling their in-state offices, because they’ll try to duck the D.C. calls—and tell them to vote against S.774 and SA 2237.
Bastards. As Rodger says, the MoFos just don’t quit. DREAM? More like a bloody nightmare.
We can get the gallows and firing squads ready later. In the meantime, please call your Senators.
