Illegal Alien`s D.R.E.A.M.—Patriot`s Nightmare
As the illegal alien (
S. 1545, [PDF]
“Development, Relief, and Education
for Alien Minors” [D.R.E.A.M.] Act
makes its way through the United States Senate, it`s
time to set the record straight about whose “dream”
this nonsense is anyway.
On October 23, the
Senate Judiciary Committee voted, by a disgracefully
overwhelming 16 to 3 margin, to support D.R.E.A.M`s
- A deportation amnesty and permanent
resident status for any smuggled illegal aliens and
visa over-stayers (now would-be “students“)
who claim to have arrived in the U.S. before age 16
- A clear path for these same illegal aliens
to receive discounted
in-state tuition rates at all
state colleges and universities across the country,
while American citizens from other states must pay the
full tuition rate. [Senate
panel approves bill on illegals, By Stephen
Dinan Washington Times, October 24, 2003]
As I have
October, 2001, the federal immigration bureaucracy
already is an alien-friendly
permanent amnesty, wide open to
fraud by anyone, and to
exploitation by terrorists. Another amnesty by
stealth only makes a bad situation worse.
Department of Homeland Security under
Secretario Ridge and international banker
Eduardo Aguirre, Jr. controls the residency and
naturalization machinery now in the Bureau of
Citizenship and Immigration Services –BCIS.
Homeland Security`s BCIS division would also hand out
conditional residence permits and
“green cards” to illegal alien “students” if
D.R.E.A.M becomes law.
The rest of the federal
amnesty apparatus hides in plain sight in the U.S.
Department of Justice, taking shape as the
farcical Immigration Court system of the Executive
Office for Immigration Review — (EOIR).
Under D.R.E.A.M, the EOIR would share jurisdiction with
the BCIS in rewarding illegal alien “students”
with resident status.
In amending the
Immigration and Nationality Act, D.R.E.A.M would
expand the most blatant rolling amnesty program already
administered by the EOIR. That`s something called
“cancellation of removal and adjustment of status for
certain nonpermanent residents” under
Section 240A (b) of the Act.
In other words, “nonpermanent
residents” is a
euphemism for illegal aliens. “Cancellation of
removal” stops their deportation and gives them
lawful permanent resident status.
Under the current law –Section
240A(b)— if illegal aliens claim to have been in the
United States for ten years, if these cheaters can prove
the counter-intuitive notion that they are persons of
“good moral character,” and if they can show
“exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” to a
“qualifying relative” (that is, a U.S. citizen or
permanent resident spouse, parent or child) if they were
deported, then they receive a freshly-minted “green
card” as a reward for living and working illegally
without getting caught.
Attention: The rolling amnesty is
already underway at the EOIR . . . as more and more
illegal aliens claim their ten years every day!
And now with a host of exceptions
and loopholes, D.R.E.A.M would expand the illegal alien
reward program even further. Under the bill,
deportation proceedings for any would-be “student”
would grind to a halt.
Here`s the amnesty smoking gun:
“Sec. 4 (a) (1) (f) —
REMOVAL OF ALIEN- The Secretary of Homeland Security
shall not remove any alien who has a pending application
for conditional status under this Act.”

Along with other immigration
disasters like the
Arizona amnesty plan, D.R.E.A.M is just another
piece-by-piece selling-off of America to illegal alien
So whose dream is the
D.R.E.A.M. Act`s anyway?
Certainly not the three patriotic
Senators who voted against it!
Just as there are only three
Justices left on the
U.S. Supreme Court [see page 31 of PDF], the 16-3
vote on S. 1545 reveals that there are only three
Senators left on the Immigration Subcommittee still
interested in the sovereignty of the United States.
As for the sixteen who did not
listen to the wisdom of these three: there will come a
day when it will not be so expedient to pander to the
illegal alien lobby.
These sixteen, along with the
39 cosponsors of illegal alien “student” amnesty do
not follow an American dream. They follow the dreams of
lawyers, the ethnic identity merchants of LULAC,
American Friends Service Committee, and even a
“social justice” group of
habitless nuns. Their dreams support those of the
cheater, the opportunist, the criminal – and the
Senators Chambliss, Sessions and
Lindsey Graham disagree.
They and everyone who proudly
abides by the immigration laws of the United
States—whether American-born or not—dream that America
should remain a nation of laws, and that illegal aliens
should not be rewarded, but
