According to World Net Daily:
President Bush's comprehensive immigration reform, defeated in June, will make a second appearance this week when the Senate takes up various pro-amnesty amendments submitted to the Department of Defense funding bill, H.R. 1585, which is scheduled for debate.
While not "comprehensive" reform, the latest initiative attempts to pass key provisions of the earlier immigration measure piece by piece by attaching amendments to unrelated bills, a process critics characterize as "stealth."
Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin, D-Ill., has re-introduced another version of his "Dream Act," this time as an amendment (SA 2237) to the DOD funding bill.
The Dream Act would grant citizenship status to certain illegal aliens under 16 years of age who are pursuing college degrees and would allow them to receive in-state college tuition rates on an equal basis with U.S. citizens.
According to Numbers USA, the Dream Act amendment allows an illegal alien to remain in the U.S. on a track headed for citizenship, provided: 1. the illegal alien can demonstrate continuous presence in the U.S. for five years and was not yet 16 years old upon initial entry; 2. the illegal alien is of "good moral character" and is not inadmissible on criminal grounds or because the illegal alien is a national security risk; an 3. the illegal alien has been admitted to an institution of higher education, has attained a high school diploma, or has obtained a GED in the U.S.

I wont even debate at this time the habit of attaching stealth amendments and pork projects to totally unrelated bills. Instead, lets focus on the defeat of the initial Immigration Reform Act pushed heavily by the Rhino President Bush and the rest of the Democrat Party. It was pushed. It was defeated because when people found out what the Congress was up to, they hooted and hollered at Congress. They clogged the phone lines and fax lines with messages to stop this idiocy. It was a betrayal to our country, to our country's sovereignty, to the laws of our nation, to the hard working real citizens of this nation and those naturalized citizens who had to work long and hard in order to attain their citizenship.Now, it turns out that they want to attach an amendment to the Defense bill to give kids who are 16 or under and who are attending college (what illegal is attending college at the age of 16 and under?!?!!?) automatic citizenship. Most states already give these illegal college-goers from another country in-state tuition that is supposed to be reserved for citizen-residents of the state the university operates in. This already is a travesty of all that is good and right. Why should I, being a non-resident of the state, though being a citizen of the US have to pay higher tuition rates than a person who entered the country illegally and is not even a resident of the state???
Illegals broke the heart of the laws by entering out country illegally and most have refused to become American by blending into our culture. They want to maintain their own culture, push their culture upon native-born Americans, take benefits from our social system including health care, food stamps and even college tuition reductions. And some states have tried pushing to give these illegals FREE college tuition. WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!?!!?
Now, members of Schmooze-gress are promising FREE AND EASY citizenship to illegals who happen to be taking classes at a university. If this passes then what else will be passed. Since the kids have a citizenship awarded, then their family also must become citizens. And, it would not be right to give citizenship to those family members just because they are here in the US already, we must also give the rest of the family members citizenship no matter where they are.
And, news online about how Texas, and I am sure in many other states, the local cities are helping to pay for and organize celebrations of Mexico's Independence from Spain. This again highlights the fact that these people have not assimilated into our society and our culture. I got no problem with conducting a remembrance of that event similar to the way some in our nation celebrate St. Patrick's Day. But, to whole-heartedly accept this event as on par with and equal to our own nations Independence Day is beyond acceptability.
Our nation is the only one that allows celebrations of another country's events. You dont see Mexico or Spain celebrating USA Independence. How about the UK?
This coddling of other races while giving short shift and the shaft to American citizens will only lead to the destruction of the uniqueness of America.
But then, that is what the North American Union will do anyway. They are already printing up Driver's Licenses with the official insignia. And, thanks to Pres Bush, the illegals favorite elected official anywere, mexican trucks are already rolling across our border unchecked and unsafe.
Say good night America. I think I found a new tag line.
