10 Things You Need To Know About The Dream Act

Although I have certainly expressed support for some kind of guest worker program for illegal aliens, I do NOT support the Dream Act. The Democrats would have you believe that it’s just about allowing young people whose parents brought them here illegally to become citizens. But don’t buy it.

Senator Jeff Sessions lays it out:

1. The DREAM Act is NOT limited to children, and it will be funded on the backs of hard working, law-abiding Americans.

2. The DREAM Act PROVIDES SAFE HARBOR FOR ANY ALIEN, including criminals, from being removed or deported if they simply submit an application.

3. Certain criminal aliens will be eligible for amnesty under the DREAM Act.

4. Estimates suggest that at least 2.1 million illegal aliens will be eligible for the DREAM Act amnesty. In reality, we have no idea how many illegal aliens will apply.

5. Illegal aliens will get in-state tuition benefits.

6. The DREAM Act does not require that an illegal alien finish any type of degree (vocational, two-year, or bachelor’s degree) as a condition of amnesty.

7. The DREAM Act does not require that an illegal alien serve in the military as a condition for amnesty, and there is already a legal process in place for illegal aliens to obtain U.S. citizenship through military service.

8. Despite their current illegal status, DREAM Act aliens will be given all the rights that legal immigrants receive — including the legal right to sponsor their parents and extended family members for immigration.

9. Current illegal aliens will get federal student loans, federal work study programs, and other forms of federal financial aid.

10. DHS is prohibited from using the information provided by illegal aliens whose DREAM Act amnesty applications are denied to initiate their removal proceedings or investigate or prosecute fraud in the application process.

This is what you need to know. Pres. Obama met with leaders from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and said that he wants the DREAM Act passed before lawmakers adjourn in December.

The lame duck Democrats are going to try to push through The Dream Act with a House vote. Outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tentatively scheduled a vote on the Dream Act for Nov. 29, the Monday Congress returns from Thanksgiving recess. That’s right. THIS COMING MONDAY. This is how they do things. It’s the same sneaky tactics the Democrats used with Obamacare.

I’ll try and keep you updated.
