Is the DREAM Act a form of amnesty for illegal immigrants?
Constantly spun as a legalization for “young people who should not be punished for what their parents did” (violate American immigration laws) the DREAM Act could legalize two million illegal aliens up to age 35. And then allow them to sponsor their parents — who brought them here illegally — for U.S. citizenship, as well as extended relatives.
The DREAM Act amnesty would retroactively repeal the federal ban on in-state tuition for illegal aliens, so individual states could grant this subsidy at the expense of U.S. citizens and legal residents.
Put another way, if the Democrats were to be successful in finding the votes for this amnesty bill, an American citizen or a legal immigrant would pay the higher out-of-state tuition rates while illegal aliens pay less to attend American universities
The DREAM Act amnesty would punish legal immigrants for what their parents did not do — ignore our laws and steal American jobs.
