A heads up: According to a staffer I spoke with from the office of RI Sen. Whitehouse, the DREAM Act may or may not be presented as a standalone bill. He said they are still debating whether it will again be attached to the Defense Bill.

Considering the war belongs to Obama now that he moved the deadline to 2014 I can't see why the republicans should feel the need to buckle to their underhanded tactics. Do the democrats really think people are that dumb? Last time they tried this they got a lot of people really POed.

NO DREAM ACT unless legal aliens will get a path to a Greencard which is not happening right now...so why even talk about getting illegal aliens a path to a greencard....

Illegal - crime - get out of the country and apply like any other legal alien!
legal - doing the right thing!

No DREAM Act without a minimum of 50,000 troops (Regulars, Reserve, and National Guard) on the Mexican border in a direct action role.

This is a lame duck Congress with nothing left politically to lose. They are as dangerous as a rabid skunk backed into a corner; however their stink will not go away. They are trying to pass everything they can before they are declared finished before the Christmas break and the installation of the new Congress in January.

NO AMNESTY! NO Dream Act!
