The Dream Act: What it is and my thoughts

The Dream Act, front door amnesty. The text of the bill can be found here: http://www.thomas.gov/cgi-bin/query/C?c111:./temp/~c111Z7ZBlJ

That way you don’t just take my word for it, look for yourself. Here’s some of the text of the bill:

“(i) The alien has acquired a degree from an institution of higher education in the United States or has completed at least 2 years, in good standing, in a program for a bachelor’s degree or higher degree in the United States.
(ii) The alien has served in the uniformed services for at least 2 years and, if discharged, has received an honorable discharge.
(E) The alien has provided a list of each secondary school (as that term is defined in section 9101 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 7801)) that the alien attended in the United States.
(2) HARDSHIP EXCEPTION-
(A) IN GENERAL- The Secretary of Homeland Security may, in the Secretary’s discretion, remove the conditional status of an alien if the alien–
(i) satisfies the requirements of subparagraphs (A), (B), and (C) of paragraph (1);
(ii) demonstrates compelling circumstances for the inability to complete the requirements described in paragraph (1)(D); and
(iii) demonstrates that the alien’s removal from the United States would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to the alien or the alien’s spouse, parent, or child who is a citizen or a lawful permanent resident of the United States.”

First off, they’ll be provided with In-State Tuition levels, something a person from another state can’t get but someone from another country can? Talk about double standard.
A short stint in the military? Nope, longer. Section (iii) where they can stay if it will be a hardship to their family. Should’ve considered that before you acted, now face the consequences of your actions.
Instead of amnesty, lighten the load on LEGAL immigration. So much paperwork and expenses. Do a background check on them from their home country. They pass, do a health check, make sure their no contagious illnesses. Good? Let them in, without welfare, rise and fall on their own.
Not amnesty, sorry but I’m a bit territorial, especially with high unemployment. Take care of our own first. Tell your Senators how you feel. The Senate switchboard number is   (202) 224-3121. A switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request. If you don’t know who your Senator is then Shame on you. Your part of the problem in this country.

What are your thoughts about this?
