Pelosi And Reid Amnesty For Illegal Alien Criminals
The DREAM Act or NIGHTMARE ACT would offer an amnesty to illegal aliens who serve in the military or attend college, but would also open the door to massive legal immigration through Chain Migration and entice future illegal immigration because it’s an open-ended amnesty. Furthermore, the bill contains no border security measures or additional interior enforcement measure that would help curb illegal immigration. Its bewildering just how much contempt Obama,Pelosi and Reid have for this country. After being thrown out on there asses by a pissed off American electorate they still insist on bringing forward legislation that further erodes the country. This Amnesty rewards criminals who blatantly violate our countries borders and laws with complete disregard. Furthermore with a unemployment rates hovering well above 10% in many parts of the country these illegals drive down already stagnant wages and poison the dwindling job pool. These illegals also murder, rape and rob more Americans every year then Al-Qaeda. The cost to the middle-class is staggering all public services are affected by this onslaught of humanity. Our schools suffer, our hospitals suffer and our public safety agencies are stressed to the breaking point. All this equates to a lower standard of living for Americans who already foot the bill for hundreds of thousands of legal immigrants who choose to come here legally . One look at the carnage and corruption south of our border gives one a look at our future if Obama,Pelosi and Reid are left to there destruction of the dwindling middle-class.
Pelosi wants DREAM Act vote
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to push for a vote during the lame-duck session on a bill that would legalize young, undocumented immigrants if they attend college or serve in the military, according to Democratic sources familiar with a leadership conference call Wednesday.
A vote on the bill, known as the DREAM Act, could come as early as next week, the sources said. Pelosi asked Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.) and Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) to assess the mood of the caucus, according to one source.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) had previously announced that he plans to bring up the DREAM Act during the lame duck session. His spokesman said Wednesday that Reid still hopes to call a vote.
The move by Democratic leaders to put immigration back on the legislative calendar will win support from Latinos, whose strong turnout numbers in the West last week were credited with helping the party hold on to control of the Senate. Immigration advocates have pressed Democrats to move on the DREAM Act as a “down-payment” on their promise to push for a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the future.
But Democrats also risk appearing out of sync with voters, who sent a message during the midterm election that they want lawmakers to focus on job creation.
The DREAM Act provides a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants if they were in the United States before age 16, and if they have been residents for five years before enactment of the law. They would need to attend college for two years or join the military.
The bill has attracted Republican support in the past. But partisan lines have hardened in recent years, and Republicans, including some who were co-sponsors at one point, haven’t been willing to go to bat for the bill.
