Enough Already! Stop the DREAM Act

By Bobby Eberle

This isn't a dream... it's more like a nightmare. First, we have the Democrats putting off action on upcoming tax increases until the very last minute. Some on the far left are still not on board. They would rather engage in class warfare than do what is right. Now, Democrats in the House have passed the so-called DREAM act which rewards illegal aliens with citizenship and is part of Obama's comprehensive immigration reform. Enough already! Enough of the pandering... enough of the politics. Americans want smaller, more accountable government that serves American citizens. It's a simple concept, isn't it?

As FOXNews.com reports, Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives passed the DREAM Act on Wednesday by a vote of 216 to 198. On the Senate side, a vote is scheduled for today, but with enough opposition from grass roots Americans, the measure will likely fail to be brought to the floor.

In short, the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act (boy, they will go to such lengths to make a catchy acronym) focuses on illegal aliens who are attending college or joining the military as a path to citizenship. In an analysis of the bill, FOXNews.com explains it this way:

Immigrants who were brought to the United States before the age of 16 would be eligible for conditional status for up to 10 years if they've lived in the country for at least five years and have graduated from an American high school or obtained a GED.

After 10 years, those immigrants can apply for permanent legal status if they've completed two years of college or military service. Previous versions would have granted permanent legal status immediately to those eligible.

According to the analysis, "it would take at least 13 years for immigrants to become U.S. citizens." Thirteen years? The cost is estimated at $6.2 billion per year. And, of course, it's money we do not have.In addition, illegal aliens with criminal records would still be eligible. First of all, any illegal alien has a criminal record... the person is here illegally! Second, according to a GOP memo, illegal aliens could still qualify for the DREAM Act even after committing "assault, domestic violence, sexual abuse, reckless driving and various types of fraud."

Here's more information:

So, there you have it. If you have a bill that costs $6.2 billion and still takes 13 years, how about this alternative: 1. Enforce the immigration laws we already have. 2. Crack down on employers so that the illegal immigration jobs dry up. 3. Once the jobs dry up, people will go back home, and apply the regular way.

We don't need a DREAM Act for people to pursue the American dream. We need to respect the rule of law, and reward people for doing things right. No, we don't want to punish the child for sins of the father. So, just tell the child, "Here is the right way to do this. Now go do it."

--------------

++ Contact your senators. Tell them to vote NO on the DREAM Act.

    I agree. An “all of the above” option would have gotten all of the votes. I do agree, however, that deep down, the Dems are catering to the Hispanics in order to get their vote looking ahead to local elections and the national elections in 2012.

He and Wyden also joined up to help pass the ridiculous health care bill without even reading iT! WE DO NOT NEED THESE LIBERAL SOCIALIST B—–D’s representing the people.

    Things are getting out of control. I have been a citizen of America for 62 years. I have worked since I was nine years old (paper route, set pins in a bowling alley, shoveled snow, bailed hay, etc.)I have paid my taxes, because it was my responsibility as a citizen of the greatest nation on Earth. I did not cut corners and fudge numbers on my taxes, as co workers and friends claimed they had done. I was honest. I am beginning to believe that I have been a fool. The Congress of the US is showing me that perhaps cheating is the right way to survive in this country. They have cheated on their taxes, and not been punished. They have cheated on their wives and families and not been punished. They have cheated by taking many bribes and payoffs by speical interest groups and not been punished. Yet they think I should voluntarily file income taxes every year so they can take my money and give it to people who break the law (illegal aliens). Tell me again why should I be honest and sign up to pay taxes? Perhaps it’s at the point of a gun. If I don’t voluntarly pay up they will come after me with guns. They steal my money and give it to others who have not done the right things. The time has come to stop this nonsense.

    Enough!
    Multiple amnesties;
    The amnesty of 1986 was supposed to be a “one time only” amnesty. Yet since 1986, Congress passed a total of 7 amnesties for illegal aliens:
    The Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA) Amnesty of 1986 – the “one-time only” blanket amnesty for some 2.8 million illegal aliens.
    Section 245(i) The Amnesty of 1994 – a temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens.
    Section 245(i) The Extension Amnesty of 1997 – an extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994.
    The Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) Amnesty of 1997 – an amnesty for nearly one million illegal aliens from Central America.
    The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act Amnesty (HRIFA) of 1998 – an amnesty for 125,000 illegal aliens from Haiti.
    The Late Amnesty of 2000 – an amnesty for approximately 400,000 illegal aliens who claimed they should have been amnestied under the 1986 IRCA amnesty.
    The LIFE Act Amnesty of 2000 – a reinstatement of the rolling Section 245(i) amnesty to an estimated 900,000 illegal aliens.

    Double Ace, there are more of us like you than not like you. For those of us who know there is a God in Heaven, the day of judgement will come.

    Eberle says $6.2 billion per year but that doesn’t even scratch the surface.
    Each amnesty encourages the next amnesty, and also encourages more and more people to cross the border to wait for it.
    We pay medical expenses and many other costs for these illegal aliens so $6.2 isn’t even a fraction of what ignoring our laws cost us.

    Frank,
    I live in Portland. Home of the Loonie Leftists and Marxists. I’m surprised the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony Bomber hasn’t been given a parade. I’m sure they’ve set up a defense fund for him! It will only be a matter of time until Katie Couric does a one hour special on him. These are the whackos that Merkley and Weiden cater to. They’ll make sure they get a close-up on Katie while she interviews the parents of this miscreant as they mourn their son’s incarceration. Welcome to “Political Correctness” at it’s worst!
    Remember, however, that the most dangerous of all of the Oregon delegation is Rep. Peter DeFazio. He is the founding member of the “Progressive Coalition.” He has never seen a tax he didn’t want to implement. “Peter the Great” has made every effort possible to keep the poor people poor and then implement social program after social program, at Taxpayer expense, to show how the Democrats take care of the poor. He’s winning too, because unemployment in Oregon is over 10% and those below the poverty threshold have increased by 30% since Obama became President. De Fazio is licking his chops over the prospect of welcoming all the new democratic voters when the Dream Act passes. Oregon will welcome every illegal alien that makes it across the river or over the wall.

    The consequence of passing this idiotic act into law would be that all these newly legalized citizens could sponsor their extended families to legalize them as well.
    The most problematic aspect of this is that none of these people have any intention of assimilating into the American fabric. Most will be dual citizens and send billions out of the country to benefit friends and family, not their communities. Many Mexicans also believe that their country of birth should reclaim large sections of America.
    Worst of all, they refuse to even try to learn English. I’ve got a little smattering of Spanish I’ve picked up along the way but refuse to use it because English is the language I insist they speak. Otherwise, they provide their own interpreters.
    At this time, when the economy and the employment statistics are the worst since FDR, the idiot Dems couldn’t have picked a worse time to inflict this on us.

    WHERE WERE YOU 3 WEEKS AGO? 2 WEEKS AGO? EVEN LAST WEEK? WHY – PRAY TELL, WERE YOU NOT RAISING THE HUE AND CRY THEN, INSTEAD OF WAITING UNTIL IT’S ALREADY PASSED THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE VOTE IS TODAY??????????!
    No wait! I think it was 2-3 weeks ago you mentioned the DREAM ACT and blithely declared it a ‘non starter’ (?) in this lame duck session.
    Oops!
    Thanks for putting those already half asleep after the recent victories, the rest of the way into a coma!

    I’ll consider the poll defective, as it did not include an “all above” option.
    As one who greatly suffered the aftereffects (delayed LEGAL immigration process–and having to put long-range plans such as marriage on-hold hostage to the lack of knowledge/training of INS and State Dept. personnel) of 1986 amnesty combined with NAFTA, I am appalled that any Congress member supports this even worse idea (DREAM Act). 1986 amnesty ENCOURAGED illegal immigration (there are between 12 and 24 million malfeasant aliens now in US), DREAM Act will totally destroy the nation!

    Well, if we are going to make the illegals “legal”, I think that it is only fair that they begin pulling their own weight and help with paying for all of these special programs and welfare incentives that the liberals want to shove down our throats. In fact, I think that they should bear the brunt of all of the costs, since it is because of them that much of our financial ruin has come about.
    One thing no one seems to be thinking about, our illustrious leaders want to freeze COLAs for seniors, military retirees, gov’t workers, etc. They are expecting us to live on much less, while they keep raising taxes and causing the cost of living to become almost too high for us to live, yet they dare consider that they are worthy still to get their pig trough filled to the max along with their annual outrageous pay raises that they vote for themselves. First, why do they think they deserve a pay raise? What have they done to deserve one? If anything, they should take a hefty pay cut. They dare raise our taxes, foist a nightmare healthcare bill on to us, and tell us to live on less and less, yet they dare thumb their noses at us, getting more money and having a healthcare program for life that doesn’t resemble anything that they expect us to deal with. It is time we hold these people to task. They first need to be held accountable to WE THE PEOPLE for every penny of our money that they spend. They need to be held to a standard of fiscal responsibility. If they were forced to use the money that they fleece off of us in such a manner as to be responsible and sensible, then maybe we wouldn’t have to have COLA freezes and higher taxes. Stop making the taxpayers pay for their so-called fact finding trips and favorite pork barrel spending. If they want to go somewhere than it should come out of their own pockets, just like it does for the rest of us. Perhaps, they would spend more time in their offices reading and getting to know mega-pages of bills that they carelessly pass to the detriment for the rest of us and maybe they would learn to legislate in a manner that would be good for this country. The American people ought to be able to have the ability to have a vote of confidence for those who are in power, like they have in other countries, instead of making the people suffer though years of out of touch leaders making our lives more miserable. Maybe if we could vote them out at anytime, if they displease us, maybe they would truly listen to what we are saying.

    You people are so selfish. DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE BROKEN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM IS JUST AS RESPONSIBLE AS THE PARENTS WHO BROUGHT THE CHILDREN HERE???! Don’t play dumb. This is about the children and them only. Don’t you think if the child knew they would reach a roadblock like this that they would opt out and go back in time and go back home. THESE ARE INNOCENT CHILDREN and they CANNOT GO BACKWARD IN TIME only forward and they are American and only documents go against this. The stringent provisions are not easily reached by individuals who qualify. YOU ARE YOUR OWN ENEMY! You really rather the money disappear in the underground work of things instead of these individuals do things the right way and surface the money and take account for their situations? THEY ARE INNOCENT! IT IS THE PARENTS WHO ARE AT FAULT AND THEY DO NOT BENEFIT FROM THIS. They won’t even able to sponsor anyone for 25 whole years if anything, and there are restrictions as to who (ADULTS). The specifics are rediculously difficult to meet and WOULD HAVE TO BE PROVEN TIMES OVER; they are already innocent and have to settle for less and this benefits the economy MOREEE than the individuals themselves. They won’t be given instate tuition cuts among other restrictions that the true citizens get. THINK ABOUT IT! CAN YOU BE ANYMORE SELFISH!? If the immigration system wasn’t broken they would have NOT let these individuals grow up here for so long and did them a favor and deport them so WE YES US ARE EQUALLY RESPONSIBLE AS THE PARENTS and it is not fair for innocent lives who were unaware of their actions to be punished for life. It is a death sentence if this isn’t passed. Many don’t even speak the language of the native country they came from and growing up through the American system through education etc. would be useless back where they came from. Their lives are ruin and the longer immigration reform takes the worse chance an innocent life has at making something of themselves. Imagine graduating from highschool to have dreams to go to college with peers and realize “OMG, my life is at a halt” and waiting with each stroke of the clock being unproductive…cold winters…always depending on others…barely holding on OF NO FAULT OF YOUR OWN….temptation to break the law..all these things pass through these INNOCENT people’s lives. IT IS NOTTTTT! THEIR FAULT but yet they have to work twice as hard or even more than the average citizen to prove that they are indeed worthy of it. How much more insensitive can you become. There are school records to determine these individuals’ actions throughout and that they were in good standing. This thing is seriously important and it may not be fair to you but it is moreeeee beneficial to you than harmful. Many minds would be able to live out their dreams and create jobs for people. You speak about the times are too hard for this now and you can’t afford it. It will add a lot more of everything and make America more American. YOU ARE YOU OWN ENEMY my opposing this; and you have to understand that IT IS WHAT IT IS and we can only make it better by taking steps toward fixing the broken immigration system and this is very well in the direction of doing that. Also realize that there is no right way to leave and come back and do it the right way. Look up the immigration laws and they CANNOT get student visas. It is too late for them…don’t you get how horrible the system is? THE DID NOT BREAK THE LAW! HAVE A HEART AND REALIZE THESE ARE INNOCENT KIDS!

    The Demos ara manipulating the process in the Senate because they know they do not have the votes. They want to make sure they do have the votes and will offer the Repubs anything the Repubs want to pass this madness for illegal criminals. We must not allow this. Americans do not want the Dream Act. So Reid and his friends must stop this madness. And somebody should tell Reid and Pelossi: Do not manipulate the process in the Senate. And that here what matters is the will of Americans. We do not care what Pelosi and Reid think about the Dream Act. Americans run the show. Pelosi and Reid do not. They have to go.

    Again, it is a step towards immigration reform. It cannot be done all at once. Those who apply will be on record and recording people who are illegal is a huge advantage and upon failure to meet the requirements to reap the utmost benefit of the Dream Act (permanent status) would be allowing them to be deported by agreement and will. See the bigger picture, not the small one. It’s really shocking how simple minded many of you are.

    And these American people who are considered illegals and fall under the qualification of the DREAM ACT WILL NOT surrender and go back home. You know why? Because they would have done so already if they were not American enough. You know how winters get, how bad the economy is…especially in NYC…these people are terrified of no fault of their own to even go back to their native land…they’re scared of their homeland because it is foreign to them! They are so American that they would not go back there no matter if this thing passes or not because they have documented American friends or earned family that would support them anyway but YOU WOULD RATHER THE MONEY DISAPPEAR UNDER THE COUNTER than them try to fix things and be right?! Many of them know that it is wrong that they wouldnt even do it. IMagine how hard it is to live all 4 seasons in America, if they faced it once they’ll face it over and over again and will not circum to the hardship and go back home because America is there home…SO IT IS YOUR CHOICE TO ALLOW THEM TO LIVE HERE CONTRIBUTING AS THEY LIKE OR TO HAVE THEM DO THINGS UNDERGROUND AND HURT YOU WORSE. Again there is no legal way for these specific individuals that is why this thing is so important.

    For those of you who are trying to put a spin on this and say that we are so selfish, etc. I have to ask, if it were only for the children, then it would be one thing. But face it, a lot of the illegals are criminal elements and they continue the life of crime here. Also, we have to consider how high the American unemployment rate is. Is it alright to keep illegals in this country and even given them amnesty so that they can be nice legal American citizens, while yet our own citizens have no work and can’t keep their families fed and clothed? I am from the Upper Ohio Valley, which is in a very bad strait economically. Our major steel mills are on the ropes, being owned by foreign interests, etc. So what about these people? Do you think that the Mexican govt would let us cross over illegally into Mexico and allow us to live in the nice warm sun, while the Mexican citizens support us? I think not. We do have to consider our own people and catering to illegal aliens is not the way to do it.

    The point is we have to take responsibility with these kids’ parents…we have to…yes…it is the right thing to do. Because a lot of these kids go through a decade or so of school in the system but undocumented/illegal and DO NOT GET DEPORTED to spare them the nightmare they come to face. The broken immigration system is still broken and until it is fixed what ever happens under thr broken system that affects the innocent (American or not) has to be accounted for by the government as well as these parents.

I have three friends who have already done so. They did it, so why can’t everyone else do it too. They are not our responsibility their parents should have been deported but weren’t and don’t give that **** about their parents picking our crops because the majority of those people are here legally. The ones who come and take construction jobs and even government jobs. THROW THEM OUT AND LET THEM STAND IN LINE LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD!

    This is a national security issue, first and always. More than Mexicans come through that southern border. The Immigration Service calls them OTM’s ( Other Than Mexican), and they catch thousands, some from hostile Middle Eastern nations. Then we get to the basic question: why are Democrats encouraging more illegals to come here during an economic depression to take American jobs? Why should American Taxpayers pay for this? Why should your kids compete with illegals for college seats? Why don’t we enforce our immigration laws? A desire to buy Latino votes and pandering to political correctness is the answer. Tomorrow and Monday, and until the vote is taken, call the Congressional switchboard at 1-202-224-3121 , ask for your Senator, and tell the intern who answers ( in a civil way) , that you opppose the Dream Act on National Security and economic grounds. Unscreened people: too risky. Chain migration lets them bring more immigrants in after them. There are too few jobs here now for Americans, this is too costly. Americans, the time is NOW to make your voice heard. Before it is too late FOREVER! A few minutes of your time….certainly, America is worth at least that much. Whether the country as we know it survives or not, is really up to us! Please call that number and keep calling until this Dream Act is defeated!

    ok onewildman the economy would keep going down you watch. You didn’t disprove anything I just said…fine, they don’t enforce it better? but the point is they let it happen and now because of their failure to do so we all must accept responsibility…blame the government, not the illegals. But a life is a life and these kids knew nothing about what lawful and unlawful is. They do what all kids do…obey their parents, no questions asked. And in response to taking your money…sure! let them keep taking the money underthecounter when they are willing to do it the right way and contribute and then some. Idiot! You Are Your Own Enemy. And I am not a liberal, I AM AN UNDOCUMENTED AMERICAN!

    You truly believe this is a giveaway huh? Compete for seats? That would make everyone step their game up. The LOLs and the ROFLMAO and all this nonsense, don’t you see we need a push. Adding diversity with deserving kids who want to contribute to the only place they know as home and you refuse! ANOTHER YOU ARE YOUR OWN ENEMY CANDIDATE. I fail to really get it in your head how difficult it is to meet the requirements of this bill…It has a lot of requirements that not anyone can cough up. This is extremely strict. These are INNOCENT LIVES! who want to give back…unscreened? Did you know education from elementary school to highschool (public) is not denied from anyone?! Thats where the records are going to come from. Get real!

    You do owe me something…I competed in the regional of a mathematics competition in elementary school and won 2nd in all of NYC. I again came second in the NYC Stock Market Game. I got the Peter Vallone Scholarship after graduating high school. I THOUGHT I WAS AMERICAN. And you’re American? and you don’t even know the immigration rules?! There is no line for those who qualify for the DREAM ACT…aren’t you paying attention to the laws you so called American!

    I have to agree, it’s really not the kids fault. So if there is some good reason why the kids should be allowed to qualify for citizenship by attending college, then good. Only it has to be as out-of-state, non-resident students who pay appropriate fees. Also, their receiving citizenship after graduation should not open the door for other family members to also be granted citizenship. Those family members should be sent packing back to wherever they came from and join the waiting line at home. Further, if the student fails to graduate, so long old friend. No intelligent person ever said life was a piece of cake.

    I would agree myself but this bill has been around for 10 years throughout so many issues and time and lives are ticking away wasting potential and it is packed with restrictions on sponsoring and even before sponsoring even comes up into the convo they are unable to file for anyone for 25 (twenty five) years afterward and there is a limit on NO adults…look it up…there is no other alternative for those qualifying for the dream act. People keep saying join the line like everyone else but there is no line…this place is home to these individuals and they reach a roadblock when adulthood is reached after graduating highschool. Can you imagine how diffuclt a year is beinmg INNOCENT and suffering having to depend on others and struggling to keep mentally alive. Each stroke of the clock is painful and it is a step, just a step towards immigration reform. It cant be all knocked out at once. Review the rules..the provisions are very fair. NO LOANS ALLOWED, NO INSTATE TUITION, NO COUNSELING…amnong other things…those privileges are taken away if this bill is passed. Can an innocent person get A CHANCE…thats all it is…a chance..if they fail to then meet the additional requirements to move from temporary to permanent there’s even more requirements. ITS AN INNOCENT PERSON…has nothing in their native land to turn to. Again reread the bill… it is called H.R. 5281..please give it your blessing. Its simply an opportunity.

    Here’s a thought…why don’t you give them your personal bank account to draw from to finance the TWO YEARS of free education? These parents are people that entered this country illegally. There is no such thing as innocence here. A crime was committed! Get it?

    I’ve since found out you’re an invader, so get out now! We’ve already paid tens of thousands of dollars for your education, yet you want us to pay more and give you citizenship. What gall!
    There are plenty of good colleges in Mexico. I suggest you apply to one of them. And once again, get the hell out!

    Mexico has no public schools, a government that could care less about it’s citizens, and a bunch of spineless people that won’t do anything to fix their country, but will come to my country and force me to write labels in spanish. That is the biggest slap in the face I have had in my life. First off most of the mexicans that come to this country can’t read or write. Some that have been here for more than 20 years still do not speak english and do not want to.
    I do not owe any of them a way of life, and damn sure do not think teaching them how to screw the US further is going to solve anything. People like obummer, reid, and pelosi should be forced to live in mexico just so they can see first hand what the mexican government is truely about.
    Even if these so called inocent kids do get to go to school on our buck, they will still send our money HOME to mexico so WE lose again.
    Send them ALL packing and as far as this red neck is concerned they can all stay in mexico.

    Buddy are you retarded? My parents committed the crime and my situation is unique you know why? My parents are in the process of getting their papers and have been paying their taxes via an ITNS number but my mother did not know when I turned 21 I would not be accounted for. Now I am screwed when they went about it the right way. DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I ALREADY HATE MY PARENTS?! This is not my fault! They overstayed their VISA and through my stepfather’s father got their papers pending and I won’t..WHY DO THEY GET REWARDED WHEN I DON’T. The Dream Act is my only hope! I’ve done everything right I spoke to immigration lawyers and they say I am screwed…I’ve been in this country since I was 4 years old and now 21!..It’s been 4 miserable years watching my friends on facebook talk about college and all this stuff…I didnt do anything yet I had to drop out after a year because my scholarship was only a temporary grant. I finished 3rd in my high school and I DONT DESERVE THIS. Please understand that Mexicans are not who this is pointed it. I AM NOT FROM MEXICO and usually when people like me go back to native land we get kidnapped and killed because they think when you come to America you get rich. I am doomed without the DREAM ACT..I cannot get a student VISA..there are various categories of immigration and I need this bill. At the end of the day my parents will still get their papers…I won’t unless this bill gets passed. Please understand I went through elementary school, junior high school, and high school and 1 1/2 years of college. I deserve A CHANCE.

    How are you an American and cannot comprehend the H.R. bill version of the Dream Act. Its says you have to go through vigorous background check..they will be strict…DIDN’T YOU READ IT?! Seems to me you’re a dumb *** cause you people keep saying things that are WRONG and are addressed in the bill and I am pissed off that you can’t seem to comprehend your own writing and language. READ THE BILL AND STOP SAYING THINGS THAT ARE WRONG…DO YOU RESEARCH! GEEEEEZ

    Frankly, I (and almost all the people I know) are sick and tired of supporting people who came here illegally and that goes for anyone they dragged into our country with them. There are NO innocents here, only those guilty by association. The children of these illegals are illegal as well and have stolen the education which we are required to give them by the ruling of our SCOTUS. They have lived off the taxes of American citizens with every public assistance dollar they received for food and housing in the form of welfare and the medical care we paid for when they visited our emergency rooms or county health clinics.
    Those of us with any sense of fair play and respect for the rule of law have no compassion for thieves (or leeches) but we are handicapped by a government which refuses to secure our borders or to govern by the Constitution of this country. Sadly, much of this is our fault as well, since we did not complain about this loudly enough and we started our protests far to late. Granted some of us have been “beating this drum” for a long time but there have been far too many Americans who were too lazy to be bothered. Some are just now waking up to the scope of the problem and in the months to come, many more will wake up. We can NO LONGER AffORD these people, nor should we ever have been expected to tolerate their presence at all!
    Their criminal behavior is quite often on full display, drunken driving often resulting in the deaths of truly INNOCENT Americans, the sexual offenses against our women and even our children. They are often arrested for fighting among themselves, usually with knives and because of all these offenses (and more) they are a disproportionate presence in our jails and prisons. Many have been deported multiple times and even when caught again they are not charged as our laws require……….re-entry after deportation is a felony under federal law and is eligible for a stiff prison sentence, another lapse in our government’s duties. To be honest, I would far more rather pay for the incarceration of these people than their welfare bills!
