    Most people thought it was dead in this session. Now, there is a real possible of it passing. Anyone who has bothered to read the bill would see that passing it is right thing to do but I think the Senate is more concerned with sending the correct political message than doing what's right.

    I heard Mitch O'Connell say that the Dream Act is dead and will not pass the Senate. It will have to be next year. It will be known Saturday. Games, games, games and more games.

    I am sick of people being rewarded for bad behavior.... all be it their parents committed the crime.

    All this will do is encourage more lawbreakers to come here and rape our country.

    If you look at the history of illegal immigration into the US, you'll see that we have encourage illegal immigration and granted amnesty 7 times. Why? Because the country has benefited from cheap foreign labor. During WWII we imported Mexican labor. In the 50's we tried to limit the illegals entering the country and deported thousands. In the 60's and 70's the flood gates opened and they poured into the country. In the 80's Reagan granted amnesty to 3 million and attempted to tighten boarder security. During these periods of lax and tightening of boarder security we allowed farmers to entice and import illegal immigrants into the country.

    Now we say let's ship all 10 or 20 million back. Well, that is not going to happen because there are too many businesses and special interest groups that will make that impossible. For first time in the history of the country, we need take a realist look at illegal immigration. This should include major tightening of boarder security, passing immigration laws that make sense, assimilating undocumented aliens that are contributing to their local communities and deporting the criminal elements.
