MILITARY HEAD FAVORS DREAM ACT

Rate this Entry

From the Washington Post:



The Pentagon's manpower chief says a measure to legalize young immigrants who came to the county illegally is an obvious way to attract more high-quality recruits to the armed forces.





Clifford Stanley, the undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, says it would be unconscionable not to enact the so-called Dream Act. It would give hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants brought to the United States before the age of 16 a chance to gain legal status if they joined the military or attended college.


But it faces long odds in Congress, where most Republicans and a handful of Democrats regard it as backdoor amnesty for lawbreakers.


Democrats' bid to advance it is likely to fail in a Senate test-vote scheduled for Wednesday.

    The outlook for Dream ACT looks going south, due to tax cut deal made by Obama and Repubs falling apart.

    Over 100 house dems against. The HOSTAGE contiues!!

    Of course, if the tax deal needs to be sweetened to bring on liberal support, maybe that opens up the possibility of getting the DREAM Act, START and DADT thrown in to the mix...

    "GOP opponents in the Senate circulated a memo calling the measure "mass amnesty," noting that the bill has no cap and no end-date. They contend it could allow even the most dangerous criminals and terrorists to gain legal status.

    "What does it say? It says to anybody thinking about coming illegally, if I can just get in the United States and hang on for a number of years, sooner or later they're going to make me lawful. That's not the message we need to send," said Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee. "Americans want us to enforce the laws, but we are considering a bill that would reward and encourage their violation.""

    Sessions is less concerned about Sharia Law! But what else can you expect from a white skin worshipping pagan masquerading as a Christian and oppsing the Sharia Law.
