STOP The Vote TODAY On The DREAM Act ~Inside Defense Authorization Bill,Senate Vote scheduled 2:15pm

Taken from the presidential campaign videos:

One last point I want to make on the immigration issue because we may be moving to different topics: Something that we can do immediately that I think is very important is to pass the Dream Act, which allows children who through no fault of their own are here but have essentially grown up as Americans, allow them the opportunity for higher education...said Obama.


The open-borders lobby is out in full force to get the illegal alien student bailout passed.

Vote Scheduled for 2:15 TODAY

Harry Reid, “I heart undocumented Americans” Reid has announced he’ll attach a DREAM Act amendment to the defense appropriations bill:

Defense Authorization bill will address the DREAM Act and discrimination in the military (Sen. Harry Reid)

The Hill

This work period, the Senate will consider the Defense Authorization bill. Along with critical support for our national security forces around the world, this legislation will address two other important issues that are long overdue.

Passage of this bill would overturn the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ rule for our armed forces. We will finally send a loud and clear message that everyone who steps up to serve our country should and will be welcomed regardless of sexual orientation.
We are also offering an amendment to pass the DREAM Act. This amendment will ensure that millions of children who grow up as Americans will be able to get the education they need to contribute to our economy. Students who come to America before age 16 and who have been here for five years should be able get their green card after they go to college or serve in the military. And many who have volunteered to defend our country can finally become citizens of it.


From Michelle Malkins blog

The NYT Monday morning pleads with the McCain/Soros Republican wing of the party to come back to the DREAM Act fold. Alinsky’s avenging angels are pounding the pavement, staging rowdy sit-ins, and shutting down traffic to get what they want.

As the Socialist Worker Online puts it: They are “undocumented and unafraid.”

McCain Considering Support for the Democrats' DREAM Act


Your first and most important phone calls are to the Senators above. ACTION: The following list is of Senators who have shown a real proclivity toward amnesty but seem to have remained uncommitted. Under the pressure of the impending November elections, some of these Senators could be persuaded to vote NO.

I would emphasize with them that a controversial bill like this has no business being put inside a Defense bill, regardless of how they may feel about the amnesty itself.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Additional info on the The Defense Authorization Act (which includes DREAM Act and repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell)

“It cuts lots of programs designed to defend America, including Missile Defense, some F-35 funding, and there is some BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) stuff in it as well. Finally, it decreases the size of the US Navy.”

You can read more about it HERE.......National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011

It also includes a controversial provision permitting abortions at military facilities, and cuts to the Iraqi Security Forces (and there will be no chance to debate these or any other defense-related issues.)

I guess that if the Dems and Rinos can't get a full blown amnesty bill passed they will sneak it in a bit at a time as riders to importyant bills.

You can't trust these sons of bitches with National Security. and What is this pos bill going to cost us. the friggin illegals aren't going to pay for a f'n thing.

This is nothing more the a BRIBE for votes.

Tom, it seems that is what they are doing, your right.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 21, 2010 03:50 PM

Mark, it sure is a bribe, that is what it should be called.

Posted by: Wild Thing at September 21, 2010 03:53 PM

They were also voting on Don't ask, don't tell, that went down now the Dream Act is up for squabble.

This makes no sense at all for a lame duck congress. They, democrats, are killing themselves with this kind of tactic. Oh well.
