Now we got to get the Rinos and the conservative Democrats in the Senate to hold.

What pisses me off about the Republicans who support the Dream Act is support it on principle if they must, but don’t be scumbags and goose step behind Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in the 11th hour of a lame duck Congress in order to pay off the Mexican fascists in Nevada and California.

There were some FReepers who thought the Democrats would be tamed by the election results.

They were very wrong.

Geez....worrying about a bunch of kids who came here when they were 2 (or 5, or 7, or 9)....who graduated high school here getting resident status is kinda silly....we have bigger problems....like China and the deficit...but that’s a little more complicated than hating on the Hispanic kids isn’t it?

It has to go before the Senate, and it will be dead on arrival. I do not know who the 8 Republicans were that voted for this amnesty bill, but I hope that will not be back in the House next year.

I thought the senate had a cloture vote today which failed:

55 yes....43 no.

Dirty Harry will try again tomarrow to seal the deal.

If it passes....welcome to Mexico and permanent Democrat majorities. Viva la revelocion!!!!

Wait ... this isn’t the actual amnesty is it? Where 40 million people get amnesty right?

(Even if it’s not, it’s still bad, real bad.)

Have you no clue what the bill entails? It’s called chain migration/legalization. All those illegals you so happily champion will now get to bring in a whole slew of relatives, and also legalize the illegal relatives that are already in the country. You are supporting amnesty for about 8 - 10 million people. I hope you are prepared to support them; and I assume you are ready and willing to surrender our sovereignty.

hating on the Hispanic kids

I'm sorry but that's a simplistic and ignorant view. The realality is they are not US citizens and we are paying for their health benefits, unemployement, and their education. Why?

Why not just pay for all this for the whole world if we aren't going to limit it to our citizens?

The cloture vote on the Dream Act is tomorrow morning.

There were cloture votes on other legislation today.

I don’t hate Hispanic kids I haye the fact theior parents brought them here so they can suck the coffers dry. They don’t raise their kids to be patriotic Americans and think of themselves as mexican, Honduran, etc.. Everytime I read an article about American kids being told not to display the American flag because it may upset these kids I get the ass. If they cannot respect our flag then they need to be sent back to their parents home countries.

besides that I resent them getting a free education when )I already have to pay for my own kids education.

Nobody's "hating" on Hispanic kids. Direct your disrespect toward somebody who deserves it.

Like those who would sell-out their own citizens -- including legal immigrants.

I want to know what laws I can break, what crimes I can commit, for which I not only will NOT be punished, but will be rewarded, as well! Oh, wait...I am an American citizen, born and raised; a Vietnam vet; and a tax-paying fool. Thus, I have no rights or privileges.

I doubt very much mr compassion saw the irony in evoking the deficit as something so much more important than normalizing millions of illegal aliens.

A product of public schools, no doubt.

Hello?? You can claim your amnesty up until the age of 30 and you only have to be here for 5 yrs. so you are eligible if you came here when you were 25. Also all you have to do is enroll for 1 class!!!
