Senate Trying Amnesty for Illegals Again

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin is once again trying to sneak Amnesty for Illegal Aliens into the Labor, Health and Human Services appropriations bill (H.R. 3043). The Democrats just don’t want to listen to you, so their so called “DREAM Act” is alive again.

The DREAM Act allows Illegal Alien “teens” to petition for their parents, leading eventually to their aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins. Illegal immigrants are not required to submit fingerprints or undergo background security checks at any point in the DREAM Act process. Therefore, DHS has no way of learning whether an alien seeking DREAM Act amnesty is a terrorist or criminal.

This security failure is compounded by the confidentiality section of the DREAM Act, which is a relic from pre-9/11 days (it’s modeled on the fraud-prone 1986 amnesty). This section basically requires DHS to hide information about terrorist and criminal aliens from itself.

If a DHS adjudicator at USCIS learns from a DREAM Act application that an alien poses terrori st or criminal concerns, the adjudicator is prohibited from alerting ICE enforcement officers at DHS, and in fact, if the adjudicator did volunteer such information to ICE, he could be fined $10,000. To cap it all, DHS is prohibited from removing from the United States all aliens, including criminals, terrorists, fraudsters, and other ineligible aliens while they have a DREAM Act application pending.


Phone them by contacting the Senate switchboard at 800-862-5530 or 202-224-3121.
