State-subsidized lawbreaking gets another shove
The Democrat’s sympathy card has been played. It’s appeal was weak and American heartstrings are less easily strummed. We’re living in tough economic times and trying to push the unpopular DREAM Act which bestows American citizenship on illegals brought here by their parents has met with stiff opposition.
For one thing, the premise is shot full of holes: Honor students who graduate from high school, plan on going to college, or the military are eligible….for the gift of citizenship. Enforcement is nil. The iffy word “plan” is the latest sugar-coated carrot to tapped out American taxpayers. Watch for honor students to suddenly become plentiful in the barrios.
Now the latest scheme to pass this flawed policy is the potential economic boon in the making via this legalization of illegals.
Obama’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan, attempting to make good on the president’s pre-election promise to cynical Hispanics, vows he will continue to support DREAM Act passage by explaining how the millions of people who could benefit from this misadventure would contribute to the economy.
“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,”Duncansaid. “This could be a piece of a solution to a number of the challenges our country faces.”
Don’t be fooled. The DREAM Act, or the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, is often referred to as Nightmare legislation, and is supported by La Raza and the slick trickster Jeff Flake. In its simplest form, think of it as state-subsidized lawbreaking.
Texas Congressman Lamar Smith, a Republican who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, says “Americans don’t want a jobs bill for illegal immigrants, they want an opportunity to go back to work.”

Passage of the Dream Act also places illegals and their foreign national family members in a prime position at the front of the line, before those who have actually legally applied for U.S.citizenship.
Arizona’s Proposition 300, which specifically bars Arizona universities from giving in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens, passed in 2006 with a stunning majority of 71.4 percent.
Yet the act incorporates children of illegal aliens into American society by providing in-state tuition rates, gifting them a taxpayer-financed education. In contrast, out-of-state American students pay the full cost of their education. This absurd and costly legislation encourages rather than depresses further illegal immigration.
