Amnesty, Again!

Let me be clear - I don't have time for this.

I'm swamped at work, am taking a grad class, and just moved into a new home. I have visitors coming in about 1 1/2 weeks, and it's going to take a lot of time to get this house ready for them.

But some things are more important than personal concerns.

This is one. PC Free Zone has all the details.

The Heritage Foundation is one of the sites leading the charge. I know it's a pain, but take the time to call, write, or fax (or all three). Tell everyone you know, and stir up some justified outrage.
The DREAM Act (S. 774) is a nightmare. It is a massive amnesty that extends to the millions of illegal aliens who entered the United States before the age of 16. The illegal alien who applies for this amnesty is immediately rewarded with "conditional" lawful per manent resident (green card) status, which can be converted to a non-conditional green card in short order. The alien can then use his newly acquired status to seek green cards for the parents who brought him in illegally in the first place. In this way, it is also a back door amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens who brought their children with them to the United States.

What is less well known about the DREAM Act is that it also allows illegal aliens to receive in-state tuition rates at public universities, discriminating against U.S. citizens from out of state and law-abiding foreign students. It repeals a 1996 federal law that pro hibits any state from offering in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens unless the state also offers in-state tuition rates to all U.S. citizens.
When contacting your congressman or Senator, mention the bill's number. Make sure that they realize that your are against this particular legislation, as well as any other like it.
