House Passes Dream Act Knowing Senate Won't
Foreigners are more likely to vote for Democrats than Americans are, so the liberals hatched their diabolical plan - fill the country with foreigners, then give them the right to vote.
U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday gave the green light to a bill giving green cards to undocumented kids who go to college or join the military.
"Oh, my God, I don't know if I'm going to sleep tonight!" said Francisco Curiel, 18, an undocumented high school senior who left Mexico to join his mom in Astoria, Queens, three years ago. He spent much of the day calling representatives or glued to C-Span anxiously awaiting the vote. "I feel really, really represented," he said. "When they passed it we started jumping all over the room."
The act only applies to undocumented immigrants who arrive in the U.S. before they turn 16. They must be under 30 when they apply, spend at least two years in college or the military and have no serious criminal record.
The measure is viewed by Hispanic activists and immigrant advocates as a down payment on what they had hoped would be broader action by President Barack Obama and Congress to give the nation's 10 million to 12 million undocumented immigrants a chance to gain legal status.
Why is the house busy passing a measure that won't get through the senate? The president didn't take up the fight during his first two years, so pretending now is important for the Democrats to keep their foreigner base happy.
