    Why not? They are collecting WIC and other government welfare programs.

    Typical wingnut knee jerk reaction.

    Obama stated very clearly at a June 15 news conference:

    The DREAM Act, if you do a little more reading outside the right wing box, specifically makes citizenship an attainable OPTION. And, unless you happen to live in a state which already allows for government subsidy programs for aliens, and there a few, there was no provision in either the President's Executive Order or in the text of the DREAM act which makes such funds available to non-citizens.

    Jeez! Next thing you know, the wingnuts will piece the whole thing together: Illegal aliens will be offered full citizenship for euthanizing our grandmothers under Obamacare.

    Really?

    Obama stated.... LOL! Typical lefty response.

    Ask the millions of people around the world who follow the rules and wait LEGALLY for years to live in the U.S. if it's not amnesty. Anybody who is allowed to cut to the front of the line and stay in the U.S. after "illegally"sneaking into the country is being given amnesty.

    Just because you call a apple a orange doesn't make it so. Half the world would like to live in the U.S. for a "better life". Why do illegals get to cut the front of line, while millions of people around the world follow the rules and wait legally for years to live in the U.S.?

    I guess according to liberals if you are driving along a road and the sign says 'This Way to Duluth,' it is just crazy and extreme to believe that you are headed for Duluth or that the road you are on will take you there.

    Nope, it's just that you're a party hack and it's fun to make fun of you for it.

    But that's nowhere near the "Welcome to Duluth" sign, is it?

    I'm at the head of the line to point out that the EO and the DREAM Act aren't perfect. But the folks this helps could also be thought of as victims of a crime committed by their parents (who may or may not ever be prosecuted and removed), wingnut screams about the millions of 30 year olds lining up to cross the border aside. (Incidentally, didn't anyone hear that border stops are actually up 80% this year?)

    Read what the EO and DREAM Act allows and, perhaps more importantly what it specifically DOESN'T allow, and you'll begin to see that there's a bit of sense behind it.

    If you didn't intend to get to Duluth you'd be driving in another direction, wouldn't you?
