One of the problems with the Dream Act is that it would be considered to be inhumane for the parents and siblings of these Dreamies to be deported (that little separation of families thingy) and we would end up wlth millions more being granted amnesty than just the Dreamies themselves.

Itís just more pandering for the Hispanic vote. They know darn well the DREAM Act will be defeated AGAIN. Even the DREAMies arenít fooled by this BS. They realize the partyís over.

Why of course. This is precisely why Gutierrez has proposed legalizing their parents. They know they canít get a blanket amnesty for the entire 30+ million, so they think they can accomplish it via piecemeal amnesty.

I hope each and every one of these idiots has a bad encounter with an illegal. Something like getting t-boned by one with no insurance.

All this defeats that argument that we need illegals to come here and do those low paying hard work jobs that Americans don't want to do.

It turns out they want to be able to get the grants and financial aid so they can be given free college so they can take the good high-paying jobs that Americans want.

Now we not only are expected to take in unlimited numbers of illegals but also are expected to put them through college and have them take the high paying jobs.

It is typical political maneuvering. The politicians are told no to one of their pet projects so they keep re-introducing it with a few words changed in the hopes that they can finally wear the voters down and get what they want.

Representing the will of the people? Since when?

It's more practice in distraction. Dems will continue to distract, diffuse and deflect to keep attention off of their efforts to raise the debt ceiling, raise spending and attempt to pose conservatives in a bad aspect.

They know they have no chance to pass immigration legislation just as conservatives know they have no chance to pass a balanced budget.

Congress is in a stalemate which will continue at least until Jan 2013. And it's not even entertaining.

Jeezies... now Sen. Boxer is attempting to censure Senator Ensign for having an affair with a staffer. The guy resigned, he's gone. Maybe she should just wipe the fingerprints off her desk.

Interesting dance to watch Republicans turn this against Democrats..."When Obama had Majority HE could have passed this bill, and HE turned his back on all of the people this bill could have helped". Good Spin by Newt Gingritch on this issue. Newt states that he supports an "amended" Dream Act.

They are so afraid of taking a stand that is "pro-American" for fear of being labeled and lumped in with racists on this issue. This IS not a civil rights movement.

"Dream Act"...call it ending the American Dream. Let's just annex Mexico and South America as part of the US...the new "51st state"
