Villaraigosa calls on Congress to pass Dream Act as way for thousands to shed illegal immigrant status
September 20, 2010 | 3:10 pm

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa added his voice Monday to those of a number of elected officials, labor leaders and others supporting the so-called Dream Act, federal legislation that would provide a path to legal status for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who arrived in the United States as youngsters.

The act, which is expected to be considered by the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, would benefit those who came to this country before age 16, have lived here for at least five years and have achieved a high school degree or an equivalency degree. Those eligible would be able to legalize their status by pursuing a college education or serving in the U.S. military.

Supporters call the bill a humanitarian and practical solution for multitudes of largely assimilated young immigrants who have known no other home and have already benefited from a U.S. education. Critics call it a thinly disguised amnesty for law-breakers. The proposal faces an uphill battle in Congress, where immigration is a politically charged issue.

Building up their own country would sure go a long ways to help the problem.

The illegals are only out for themselves. They don't give a damn about their own country or ours, they don't care what happens to all those "left behind" in their own country. They aren't trying to better themselves, they're just out for what they can get.

They probably could have won something for the illegal children if they hadn't been so greedy. They decided the reason they wanted the Dream Act was so the illegals could demand free universities of their choice when no Americans get that and they got ridiculous in claiming kids smuggled in at age 15 deserved all the financial aid for college that Americans would have to give up.
