DREAM Act means backdoor amnesty to millions of illegals
Senate should vote NO to DREAM Act
The DREAM Act has been reintroduced in both the House (H.R. 1751, by Rep. Howard Berman (D-CA)) and the Senate (S. 729, by Sen. Dick Durban (D-IL). Several cosponsors of the legislation have referred to the DREAM Act as a “narrow” proposal to deal only with the children brought here illegally by their illegal-alien parents. Unfortunately, the facts belie that claim. Here are the essentials of what the bills would do:
• Retroactively repeal the federal ban on in-state tuition for illegal aliens, so individual states would decide whether to grant this subsidy to illegal aliens at the expense of U.S. citizens and legal residents. This discriminates against legal U.S. citizens and residents.
• Require DHS to award amnesty to every illegal alien claiming to meet minimal criteria:
• The Senate version also requires that amnesty applicants be under 35 years of age and not be subject to a final order of removal or exclusion.
• Neither version requires specific documentation or other proof that amnesty applicants actually meet these minimal criteria.
