The Nightmare of Dream Act III

While we are all distracted by the national debate around health care reform, there has been a growing momentum toward the next battle – and it’s going to be a doozy.  If you thought the Dream Act II was dead, think again.

Recently, President Obama hinted at what was coming down the pipe, and just in time for the mid-term elections if I might add.  What might that be?  Dream Act Three.  Working on the project is Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC).  They’ve tried to devise a bill that would allow illegal immigrants in this country now a “path” to citizenship.

Enter the “grassroots” wave to help begin the push for the Dream Act III.  A story posted via the Associated Press and picked up by the Chicago Tribune and others explains that there is going to be a illegal immigrant “coming out” day.  Apparently, this “coming out” is part of a national rally scheduled for March 21st when “tens of thousands” of illegal immigrants are supposed to march on Washington DC.

Be sure to thank Republican Lindsey Graham for helping to provide cover to the Democrats looking to score political points.  If the Democrats can get amnesty to the 10 million plus (very conservative estimate) illegal immigrants in this country (while illegals are being counted in the 2010 Census), they know they’ll have a large new voting block that will be loyal to the Democrats.  According to a study by the Pew Hispanic Center, the number of Hispanics identifying as Democrats is almost 2 to 1 over Hispanics identifying as Republican.  In addition, the study indicates an upward trend in Hispanics identifying as Democrats.  Remember, it’s usually not about doing what is right in Washington DC, it’s what you can do to lock up voting demographics and to get re-elected – $2.6 trillion in consequences be damned.  As a result of Dream Act III, illegals will be able to gain amnesty and will then be covered under the health care reform bill.  Besides, we all know how well the 1986 Immigration Reform bill “fixed” the problem of illegal immigration.

Then today from TheHill.com, the Hispanic Caucus is upset because illegals are not included in the health care reform bill.

Be prepared.  As soon as they either Rahm health care down our throats or it dies the death it deserves, the Dream Act III is coming as a way to bailout the fledgling Democrats before the November elections and locking up a voting demographic already leaning their way.

Lastly, as we listen to what the illegal immigrant protesters will say at their rallies, I was reminded of an email I received many moons ago regarding their arguments….

Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.

Let’s say I break into your house.

Let’s say that when you discover me in your house, you  insist that I leave.

But I say, “I’ve made all the beds and washed  the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors.  I’ve done all the things you don’t like to do.   I’m hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your  house).”

You are required to let me stay in your house.
You are required to add me to your family’s insurance plan. You are required to educate my kids.

You are required to provide other benefits to me and to my family
(my husband will do all of your yard work because he is also hard-working and honest, except for that  breaking in part).

If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.

It’s only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I’m just trying to better myself.

I’m a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your  house. And what  a deal it is for me!!!

I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.

Oh yeah,  I DEMAND that you learn MY  LANGUAGE!!! so you can communicate with me.
