I'm a democrat and I'm disgusted with her.

We're in the middle of the greatest recession since the great depression . . . and THIS insulting piece of ethnic pandering to lawbreaking idiots and their off spring is her priority? Why the hell should the ordinary American citizen give a damn if someone from Mexican earns a GED in Spanish? How does that qualify him for American citizenship?

She's an idiot. Give it up Mexican illegals. Go home and fix up your country instead of making demands on ours. If you momma brought you here well maybe it's time your momma finally took you home.

Throwing an estimated 2.1 million newly minted legals into this economy/job market is sure doing a LOT to assist those Americans and legal immigrants struggling to find employment, but it seems the Dems are more concerned with illegals than they are with their own.

Stalwart immigration enforcement supporter Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) will be circulating an alert about the Dems’ DREAM Act nightmare emphasizing some of the following critical points:
1) The illegal alien student bailout will NOT be limited to “children” — but, in fact, would put illegal aliens in their 30s and 40s on a “path to citizenship.” Taxpayers “would also be on the hook for all federal benefits the DREAM Act seeks to offer illegal aliens, including student loans and grants.
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, including gang members, deportation fugitives, and those who have committed voter fraud or marriage fraud, would be eligible for DREAM Act amnesty.
4) An estimated 2.1 million illegal aliens will be eligible for DREAM Act amnesty.
5) Illegal aliens would be eligible for in-state tuition benefits under Section 3.
6) The DREAM Act does not require that amnesty beneficiaries actually finish any type of degree as a condition for “path to citizenship” benefits.

I'd also like to know just why TWO years military service is deemed sufficient for a "path to citizenship" for former illegals when most recruits sign up for FOUR at a minimum.

JUST IN: DREAM Act Set For November 29th Vote - Hispanically Speaking News
This is proof that the dimwit democrats don't care about the unemployed in this country. How the heck is adding 30 million more citizens to this country going to help the 30 million un/underemployed Americans? Prince Harry going to create 60 million jobs I don't know about? The unemployed need JOBS not more competition with cheap labor.

Just another classic example of the dems screwing us over. Let's just hope the republicans aren't dumb enough to vote for this. If the repubs go along with it, I say it will be time for a third party.

I really don't think they can get this through. Didn't they already try pushing it through by attaching it to the defense bill and it didn't pass? I wonder if she will try to attach it to the Bush tax cuts or something. She sure is a witch. I don't think she has the pull that she used to have though.

And I agree, if the repubs go along with it I'm done with them too.
