The daily pushes the nightmarish DREAM Act…again

The daily is back at its position as sentry, though not on behalf of the citizens of this country. It is assuming its full statured stance at the gate to our country by taking on the heart-strings tugging posture reverted to as a last defense.  The topic is the DREAM Act, which today’s editorial is pushing with both hands —  even going out on a limb deceptively declaring it neither amnesty nor a reward for lawbreakers.

 As an example, this is the language they employ: “The economic benefits and all-American humanity behind the DREAM Act have been buried under a mountain of political spit wads.”

Editorialist Linda Valdez cunningly refers to the illegal aliens she and her publication hope to normalize as “undocumented children who grew up saluting the American flag.” They are referred to as “children” repeatedly throughout the editorial, although the term is interspersed with “young people” and “kids.”

Using the same terminology as in this shocking Aztlan Reconquista video, Valdez calls America an “aging nation” in need of these “resources we should not squander” — “potential Doctors. Lawyers. Entrepreneurs. Teachers. Politicians.”

One can sense Valdez’s high drama and fever pitch with each one word sentence.

Acknowledging the failed effort to attach the DREAM Act to a defense-authorization bill earlier this year was widely criticized as underhanded, she notes that Nevada Democrat Sen. Harry Reid now pledges to resurrect it as a stand-alone bill during the lame-duck Congress.

Though Democrats are limping though the halls of Congress after suffering massive losses of stature and warm bodies to take up their mantle, they still don’t get the concept of subtleties as apposed to ramrodding unpopular legislation.

The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act would essentially repeal part of prior federal law — specifically the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act — “that prohibits any state from offering in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens unless the state also offers in-state tuition rates to all U.S. citizens.” It would further offer amnesty to those illegal immigrants that came to the U.S. before the age of 16 (essentially unprovable) and have lived here for at least five years if they serve in the military or attend college.

Arizona’s Proposition 300, which specifically bars Arizona universities from giving in-state tuition rates to illegal immigrants, 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.

    These are the “undocumented children” right here in Arizona “who grew up saluting the American flag.” In what language?

  2. California Dreamer says:

    Remember that it was your old Arizona buddy John McCain who advised demanding Mexican marchers to ditch the Mexican national flags they so proudly waved, in favor of American flags as a better PR move.

    How’d you people allow yourselves to get suckered again and vote that double crossing creep back in? Does the hot sun rot your brains? Can’t you see what’s happened here in California? Believe me, you don’t want to copy us!!

    “They (That’s US in OUR America they want to invade) stole this land, stole our civilization.”
    “That border is artificial. Man made. Birds and animals know that. They (That’s US) crossed the whole Atlantic Ocean to come here.” (5:20 secs)

    And yes, CA Dreamer, we are nuts here. McCain outspent JD Hayworth by over $22 million. That’s called buying an election. Sad to say, but Arizona voters were for sale. They buy slick mailers and watch enough TV to absorb anything. Then too many vote accordingly. Those in Arizona’s numerous retirement communities like the 50+ years ago Vietnam vet/hero aspect. Whether due to sun exposure or age, too many brains weren’t working during our last election.

    How can this amnesty for millions (and eventually their chain migration family members) be justified under any circumstances? But with unemployment skyrocketing and American citizens suffering loss of jobs and homes, this DREAM Act legislation is actually anti-American. Contact your congressional members and demand that they vote against this abomination.

  5. Army Of One says:

    How about the banner that says Arizona is Nazi? They are also chanting that Sheriff Arpaio is a Nazi. Do these morons even know what the Nazi regime was all about? Where are the concentration camps, ovens and crematoriums in Arizona or anywhere in the USA? Not being given what they want is not the equivalent to Hitler. Our schools have done a masterful job, eh?

    If you think that video is disgusting, it doesn’t hold a candle to this:

    “We are not immigrants, this is our homeland!!!!! We are migrants free to travel the length and breadth of America because we belong here. We have an aging white America. They are not making babies, they’re dying. It’s a matter of time. We are going to increase our numbers one way or another. We will win!”

    These speakers are members of the California state legislature, the Mayor of Los Angeles and a University of Texas professor. And interestingly, Linda Valdez uses some of their same language in her editorial.

  7. Rambling Rose says:

    The Lame Duck Democrats plan to pass this Amnesty, which the majority of Americans oppose, over Christmas just as they did Obama’s nationalized health care bill. Watch for Arizona’s McCain, Kyl, Shadegg and Flake to hop onboard with this monstrosity. They ran as Republicans. Hold their feet to the fire.

    This editorial is infuriating! I would have known it was written by Linda Valdez simply by knowing the take on the topic of illegal immigration. This is a sure bet.

  9. catsclaw says:

    I love the bit in Valdez’s column about saluting the American flag – I seem to recall an incident in California on Cinco de Mayo that concerned about t-shirts that depicted the American flag.
