      Perhaps this will pass as a standalone, but I dount CIR could ever get throught the lame duck session.
      Always interested in the H1-B visa, the Eb-5 Visa Program and other Eb5 Investor Visa related issues.

        The BadDREAM Act has no chance of passing!

        Americans support legislation such as Arizona's SB1070, they do NOT support amnesty for illegal aliens or mini amnesties such as the BadDREAM Act.

          The DREAM Act isn't an amnesty. It never was but it is needed.

            Of course it is an amnesty. To say otherwise is a lie.

              <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> Unfortunately, immigration status and the associated barriers to higher education contribute to a higher-than-average high-school dropout rate. The DREAM Act would eliminate these barriers for many students, and its high-school graduation requirement would provide a powerful incentive for students who might otherwise drop out to stay in school and go on to college.

              What a baloney. Drop out rate has very little to do with immigration status. Talk about grasping at straws


              4 year military active duty/deployed to get a greencard. Pay entrance fee to participate. Now that is a dream act. Fight for the country that you want a free ride from.

                the DREAM Act is amnesty, just dressed up....deport illegal aliens, no matter what, and keep opportunities for education available for AMERICAN students, not the offspring of dirtbags.

                  Everything is amnesty to you. Why don't you advocate for the IRS to stop giving amnesty to tax evaders? Happens every year and you've NEVER made a comment here, ever. Why don't you advocate for arrest instead of a ticket for a traffic violation that's rendered a misdemeanor by state law, that's "catch and release", isn't it?

                    there is no correlation between the events you mentioned versus rewarding illegal alien dirtbags...but, once again, for the umpteenth time, if you love illegals so much, how come you haven;t invited a dozen or so to live in YOUR house, drive YOUR car, ***X your daughter, etc? Why? Because you are a hypcritical moron.

                        “Without the Dream Act, I’m relegated to a mere shadow,” he said, after recounting his longtime hopes of joining the military. He said he had repeatedly tried to enlist, especially after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, but was turned away.

                          Great post, Brittie! I'm sure there are so many others who are stuck in limbo and faultless for being in the situation they are in.

                            All this doesn't matter. These stories are not new, unknown or strange. This is something Congress knows but they have failed to act because they don't care.

                            It's more important to pander to some anti-immigration group with money and resources, they finance the campaigns. Fairness, or whatever else, is secondary to getting elected.

                            That is the cold reality.

                            Racism is alive and well here. Yes, it's racism, nothing else. All this talk about law and all is irrelevant, a cover, this is about racism, the joy some people get in talking down to others, the joy they get when they see people exploited, the sense of superiority that comes with it. That's what this is really about.

                            This has nothing to do with the law. If this was about law, then you'd see some sort of protest against the IRS amnesties that happen every year, you'd see some movement demanding the prosecution of those who tortured. You don't see any of that because this is about race.

                            Admitting to racism is somehow shameful so they'll hide behind the cover of "illegality". That's why they are so quick to make the distinction. Remember the "No Irish Wanted"? Was that about law? Was the Chinese exclusion Act about some noble goal? It was racism codified into law. All this is alive and well today, you see the new KKK hating people just because they have nothing better to do, just like certain characters here.

                            It's not going to change, it took decades of fighting in the courts and a lot of blood to give African Americans true equality under law, and still today you see efforts to get rid of that. Again, racism masked as a legal dispute.

                            Reality? People are selfish and they won't admit to that. This is not some patriotic effort, this is a selfish endeavor to manipulate the law to achieve some dark goal you can't admit to in public. That is it, that is the core of this, wether you like it or not.

                            You'll see a million efforts to disguise this. From calling it a "narrow" perspective to branding racism a thing of the past. You be the judge. The facts remain and they remain clear for all to see.

                            The system is not to blame, the American People is not to blame. A group of politicians who allow themselves to be influenced and bought by special interests and terrorist groups such as the KKK are to blame. They have influenced and obstructed any effort to bring justice, equality and fairness into the process. They will continue to do so.

                            The fight is not just about immigrants, it's about what stands behind the law and the principles that follow. This is about the true essence of who we are, all of us, aliens and citizens, this is about the nation as a whole. It's up to every single one of us to make the choice and do what we can to protect the good in society, just make sure when the time comes you stand on the right side of the argument.

                            Good luck to all, and never give up hope!

                              Yes, it does matter. Alot.
