DREAM Act: Economic benefit to nation

To read a comprehensive report on the positive economic impact of the
D. R. E. A. M. Act click here.

This reform legislation will benefit all of us, including thousands of young people here in Dallas with whom we work.

Since i am basically out of touch with Texas politics. Do you have any insight as to why Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson has dropped her support of the DREAM ACT?

Now this is a nice paraphrase
". . .I was a stranger and you welcomed me. . ." Jesus (Matthew 25).
Its entirely out of context, and a gross distortion when appended to your DREAM Act blog today

This is just a last ditch effort by Harry Reid to get on the good side of Hispanic voters. It is another name for amnesty and it will go down in flames just like it has for years now. The American people do not want this.

Very few would join the military and there is no requirment to get a college degree. One just has to enroll and there is no requirment to complete a degree. There are many phony on line colleges that would fit the bill. Then, many more illegals would flood the country and wait for Dream Act II.

The border should be secured before any kind of amnesty is considered, otherwise it is just a revolving door.

Sorry DallasWatchdog, but you are simply wrong. The notion of "stranger" in Hebrew culture was clearly the alien or the immigrant.

RC, just politics. In 2007 she was for it.

Below is Senator KBH's response to why she can't support the DREAM ACT. I have also included her contact information if you want to respond. It seems illogical and counter-intuitive that once they become citizens, we should limit their rights. It also sounds racist.

Dear Friend:
Thank you for contacting me regarding S. 3992, the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. I welcome your thoughts and comments.

On November 30, 2010, Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) introduced this bill, which would allow for a 10-year conditional non-immigrant visa that would lead to eventual citizenship. Once they become U.S. citizens, these individuals would by law be able to petition for family members to also gain citizenship. This would therefore expand citizenship beyond the intended students. Because of this, I am unable to support the current version of the DREAM Act.

I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me on any issue that is important to you.
