Unless slated as an "amnesty" they still wouldn't be able to work. If they hadn't gotten greedy and tied other things to the bill it would have already passed.

There is a Hispanic Tea Party? LOL AND they support the Dream Act? That doesn't make sense.

Actually, (and I do not mean to be glib towards you at all) it makes perfect sense. It just shows how out of touch Republicans are towards the Hispanic community.

I think it’s the same group previously known as The Tequila Party, a group of ethnocentric Hispanics. If so, I’m not surprised they would support the DREAM Act, or any form of amnesty for their “special” brethren.

Im a Chicano. I DONT like illegal aliens. I DONT want amnesty. Not all of us are pro amnesty even if talkin bout Mexicans.

Cesar Chavez had no use for illegal aliens cause they hurt his farmworkers.

Yeah, the Republican party is out of touch with the Hispanic community. In otherwords they won't put their illegal amigos above our laws nor reward them with amnesty. Shameless, isn't it that they should honor our immigration laws and put the well being of the majority of Americans above illegal foreingers.

Unfortunately Obama used his "Executive Orders" powers to pass the dream act already. He did an end around to screw the American people and especially all of the immigrants who worked hard to properly enter the country.

This country is made of immigrants and almost all of us are descendants of immigrants. Nothing wrong with legal immigration and everything wrong with illegal immigration. What surprises me is why legal immigrants that have worked so hard to enter this country don't stand up to the idiots who want to give it away with amnesty to illegals?
