I just read a report to day that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that he wants to attach an amendment to the defense bill. He wants to be sneaky in helping young people in the country illegally become legal U.S. residents.
There is no end to the sneaky things the Democrats are willing to do to make illegals legal. It amazes me that these people are so easily ignoring the Constitutional provision that protects this country’s borders. It’s about time we take a stand against those in Washington who think this practice is acceptable.
Reid had said at a Capitol news conference that the legislation known as the “DREAM Act is long overdue”. This act would allow young people attending college or joining the military to become legal U.S. residents. When asked, he wouldn’t say if he has the votes he needs for the amendment to pass.
I have a real problem with allowing any illegal to be rewarded with any type of benefits. We know nothing about these people, other than they broke the law to enter this country. And Senator Reid thinks we should allow these people to join our military and become citizens?
What is the matter with his thinking? If you feel the same way as I do, the time is NOW to let Him and your Democrat leaders know you disapprove of this amendment.
According to the article I read in NewsMax.com, “The young people must have come to the country when they were under 16 years of age and have been in the country five years. They have to serve in the military at least two years and complete two years of college.”
I guess the reasoning here is that they have gotten away with being here illegally for five years so now we should reward them for being a good citizen? Furthermore, why are illegals serving in the military? Have we dropped our standards so low that we allow anyone, even illegals to serve in the military? I guess that is how we get a Muslim soldier to throw grenades inside the tents of fellow soldiers in Iraq because he couldn’t take it any more.
I have a problem with the Democrat Party all the way around when they approve of abortion, gays in the military, and illegals being nationalized and serve in the military. Are they becoming the Party with no morals?
Of course , the so-called-party of “NO”, the Republicans oppose both measures. I should hope so! Somebody needs to oppose what the Democrats want to do!
What has people ticked off right now is President Barack Obama giving in to the pressure he is receiving from the immigrant and Hispanic communities. Because Congress fails to get an immigration reform bill passed as he promised, he has to do something soon to appease these communities.
Some critics say Democrats’ end-of-the-year push on immigration reform is a political move. Reid is facing a tough re-election challenge from tea party favorite Sharron Angle, who supports tougher immigration laws. Hispanics make up a quarter of Nevada’s population.
Reid blamed Republicans for the inability to pass a sweeping immigration reform bill.
“I’ve tried to. I’ve tried so very, very hard, but those Republicans we’ve had in the last Congress (who backed immigration reform) have left us,” he said.
Minutes before Reid announced his plans, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell described the defense policy bill as “needlessly controversial” because of the inclusion of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” measure and plans to add the DREAM Act.
“I can’t tell you right now how easy it will be to move forward with that bill,” said McConnell, R-Ky. …Newsmax.com
