WE HAVE A DREAM! HOUSE OKs BILL AIMED AT YOUNG UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS! 216-198

E-mail Print PDF

This afternoon, Russell Pearce, the Arizona State Senator who authored the racist law in that state that was the source of all the hell-raising this past summer, was in Washington DC with Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch to cry at the National Press Club press conference about immigration (and we definitely can't say "illegal" in his case, because when Peter Brimelow of VDARE asked him if we should have a moratorium on legal immigration he agreed), the 14th Amendment, federal lawsuits against Arizona and the DREAM Act, the bill that will give young immigrants who are in this country without papers the opportunity to gain legal status. Well, expect more bitching, because the House sent a shot across the bow. With a 216-198 vote, including a number of Republicans, the DREAM Act passed the house about an hour ago. Bitching is all conservatives can do at this point. See, no one except the xenophobes in this country feel that illegal immigration is so bad that a young person whose parents crossed the border when they were three, who was educated here, worked here,  knows life no where else but here and would rather be nowhere else but here, should be sent back to a land they don't know when there are other options because a bunch of scumbags have a chip on their shoulder. We never get conservatives. They have never won this fight at any time in the history of this country, not when it was the Irish, the German, the Chinese or whomever else they targeted in this society to hate. They are having better luck fighting their little war on Christmas! Alas, they will press on, and we will have to keep reminding them of what we are about in this society. Hint: It's not their BS! More on this story as we go along, because the Senate votes tomorrow, and they had better not screw this up - which is expected.

The House has passed legislation to give foreign-born youngsters brought to the U.S. illegally a shot at legal status.

The vote Wednesday night was 216-198 to approve the so-called Dream Act.

In the Senate, however, Democrats are unlikely to muster the 60 votes needed to advance the bill past opposition from the GOP and a handful in their own party who view it as amnesty. A Senate vote is expected Thursday.

The bill is aimed at hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. before the age of 16, who have been in the country for five years and graduated from high school or gained an equivalency degree. They would have a chance to gain legal status if they joined the military or attended college.
