SENATE POISED TO GRANT ILLEGAL ALIEN STUDENT AMNESTY
F.A.I.R. ^ | 10/6/03

Posted on 10/06/2003 6:23:36 PM PDT by wilyrascal

SENATE POISED TO GRANT ILLEGAL ALIEN STUDENT AMNESTY We Can Stop It With Your Help

We need you to call members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to stop passage of S. 1545, the DREAM Act. The bill will be voted on in committee the week of the 13th. Call as many people on the list below as possible. If you are a constituent of any of them, send them a free faxed message through our web site.

New Developments:

Yesterday, October 2, the full Senate Judiciary Committee came close to approving S. 1545, which would repeal the current federal law that bans states from granting in-state tuition for illegal aliens. Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) introduced this legislation, the Development, Relief, and Education for Minors (DREAM) Act. Fortunately, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) raised objections to the bill and was able to temporarily stop the committee from moving forward. But the bill will be brought back up for committee consideration the week of October 13 (after next week’s congressional recess). The bill is expected to easily pass the Senate once it is passed by the committee. So we must defeat this bill while it is still in committee. YOUR HELP IS CRITICAL.

This outrageous legislation would provide an amnesty for illegal alien students and ultimately their parents and families. It grants permanent resident status to illegal aliens who have been enrolled in good standing in a bachelor degree program for at least two years (no graduation, attendance, or other requirements needed). In some instances amnesty is available to individuals if they perform less than four months of community service with a non-profit organization.

Call to Action (See Talking Points Below):

- Contact all members of the Senate Judiciary Committee by fax and by telephone and urge them to vote no on the DREAM Act when the Judiciary Committee meets to consider the legislation (see list of Committee members with fax and telephone numbers below). They will be in recess next week, so please call and fax their state offices first.

- If one of these members is your senator, please send a free faxed message through the “Elected Officials” section of our web site. Once you find your senator’s page, click the “Send Message” icon, and then click “Compose Your Own Letter” at the bottom of the screen. Use the talking points below to craft your message.

Talking Points:

- This is a form of amnesty and is objectionable for all of the reasons that any amnesty for illegal aliens is objectionable—most importantly, that it rewards violators of U.S. law and encourages others to follow in their footsteps and sneak into the country illegally.

- This legislation puts illegal aliens ahead of American citizens and legal residents (a denial of equal protection under the law), by giving them in-state tuition rates while American citizens will have to pay higher out-of-state tuition fees if they are not state residents.

- If passed, this legislation would repeal current federal law that bars granting in-state tuition to illegal aliens without also providing in-state tuition for non-resident U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.

- This legislation is a blazing neon sign announcing to the rest of the world that anyone who can get to the U.S. illegally can get a cut rate college education for their children, thereby encouraging ever greater numbers of illegal aliens.

- State colleges and universities across the nation have limited enrollment capacity, and, therefore, increasing the intake of illegal aliens into these schools will necessarily preclude opportunities for deserving U.S. citizens and legal residents.

This is just a fraction of the irresponsible actions taken by members of Congress. Many Republicans are just as guilty as Democrats when it comes to pandering to the illegal alien lobby. Every member of Free Republic should belong to F.A.I.R., the Federation of American Immigration Reform and help put a stop to this madness.........

If I'm not mistaken Senator Byrd stopped this amnesty attempt the last time. Fortunately Jeff Sessions is on the American people's side, hopefully he can bury this outrageous bill. If not, we'll have to make an all out effort in Congress, illegal aliens do not deserve to be rewarded.

Can you believe it was a democrat who stopped this insanity the last time? I hope Tancredo has his fighting shoes on in the House, that might be our only chance.

Boy I sure am glad we voted Republican to win back the Senate. Who knows what would have happened if we didn't all vote for Liddy, eh az?

Now this is a question for all the North Carolinians out there. Considering the Hispanic population in the state of North Carolina, the fact that we were told Liddy would do what the White House wants her to, and the White House is in favor of this bill as it's quite apparent from President Bush's statements how he feels, or doesn't feel I should say, on the illegality of border hoppers, why is it again we voted Republican? Oh, yes I forgot. To 'win' back the Senate. I'm sure glad 'we' won back the Senate so legislation like this could get through....

The bill is expected to easily pass the Senate once it is passed by the committee

Yep, I'm glad the Senate is run by the 'good' party instead of the 'bad' party < /sarcasm>. No judicial nominations are worth this. Legislation introduced by a Republican, and voted for in a Republican Senate

Not saying I told you so but....

Yes, I was kidding. I was being sarcastic, again.

We can't expect Conservative legislation from RINOs, it's a waste of time to bother electing them.

A majority of RINOs in Congress is still a Liberal Congress.

By the way, did you hear that Bush signed the Defense Spending Bill with a last minute change that gave the whole Naval base at Roosevelt Roads, PR over to the Puerto Rican government?

All that RINO chest thumping about selling the base to the highest bidder with 100% of the proceeds of the sale going to the U.S. Taxpayers was just a lot of Bush/RINO 'smoke and mirrors'.

The 'Hispanderer-in-Chief' strikes, again!

I find it beyond bizarre that a majority of Republicans as well as American citizens are totally against illegal immigration and yet the Republican majority in Congress and a Republican President continue ignore us.

It's as if Clinton/Gore were still in office.

It's also a stealth move, trying to push this through while conservative media has so much on its plate right now. I'M SICK OF HATCH! He disgusts me. He ought to take that shoe leather he moans about and cram it up his rear.

IT WAS FOREIGN 'STUDENTS' WHO CAUSED 9-11. We have all this loss of privacy right now, but it wasn't native born Americans who caused 9-11. It was foreign STUDENTS. This is it! I'm mad as heck and I'm not taking it any more! Instead of pis#ing outward on the rats, I'll be pi#sing inward for a while. $%^&!

You are correct to put so much energy into this. It makes GOP concern about 'homeland security' nothing more than a big lie. With the recall election combined with Rush problems, they think we don't have time for this. I for one will MAKE time for this! I've had it! Hatch is lucky I can't get near him. I'd spit him in the eye.

The reason they can't be arrested for this is our Founding Fathers could not foresee such a lack of patriotism. The voters are swamped with problems. But we will get them. It's like shooting buffalo. Start with the stragglers on the outside and work your way in, and the buffalo don't run away. We will aim with political bullets-- not real ones, although if California turns into Kosovo, anything goes. It would be anarchy then.

We will remember who our enemies are come 2004.

You write this on the very day of the election in which the Republicans abandoned a true conservative for Arnold. Notice how this invasion stuff happens when there's a diversion?

Best chance, the HOR, and/or get MoveOn.org on our side. Other best chance, find a Dem going for president who does put the US and its citizens first.

This sounds like an end run, not compassion. Anyone wants to come here? Well, just sent tuition for one course to a community college or pilot-training program or whatever. Then, bring in 100 closest relatives. (I'm exaggerating, I hope)

And, who are you going to remember to defeat in 2004? This is far worse now than it has ever been.
