The DREAM Act does not protect America from terrorists and criminals. Illegal aliens are not required to submit fingerprints or undergo background security checks at any point in the DREAM Act process. Therefore, DHS has no way of knowing whether or not an alien seeking DREAM Act amnesty is a terrorist or criminal. To cap it all, DHS is prohibited from removing from the United States all aliens, including criminals, terrorists, fraudsters, and other ineligible aliens while they have a DREAM Act application pending, even if that application is based upon fraud or the alien is ineligible. With 22 million Americans jobless and 8 million illegal aliens holding American jobs, the Congress should not consider passing any amnesty that would only encourage more illegal immigration. The DREAM Act will harm these jobless Americans and will only help those who have knowingly broken America's laws. CALL YOUR SENATORS TOLL FREE 1-877-210-5351 AND TELL THEM NO!
