The Dream Act has passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 216 to 198. For those of you who are going to blame the Democrat party in a lame duck session, please consider these facts. Eight Republicans voted for HR 8647.

  • Ahn “Joseph” Cao, Louisiana
  • Mike Castle, Delaware
  • Lincoln Diaz-Balart, Florida
  • Mario Diaz-Balart, Florida
  • Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Florida
  • Charles Djou, Hawaii
  • Vern Ehlers, Michigan
  • Bob Inglis, South Carolina
  • If they would have voted against this legislation, the vote would have been 208 to 206.  But we must also consider the eleven Republican representatives who did not even bother to vote.

  • Brian Bilbray, California
  • Roy Blunt, Missouri
  • Steve Buyer, Indiana
  • Mary Fallin, Oklahoma
  • Phil Gingrey, Georgia
  • Kay Granger, Texas
  • Parker Griffith, Alabama
  • Kenny Marchant, Texas
  • Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Washington State
  • George Radanovich, California
  • Marlin Stutzman, Indiana
  • This would have made the vote 217 to 208 against the measure and the Dream Act would have failed. I wonder what the unintended consequences of this vote will be. Our votes will be worth as much as the dollar in the 2012 elections.

    The internet is all a buzz with chatter about the Dream Act (or Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants) being pushed through by the Lame Duck Senate. The vote could come as early as TODAY (Nov. 29, 2010) so it’s time to light up those phone lines.

    The DREAM Act of 2010 is really a NIGHTMARE!

    If you’re not familiar with this legislation, here is a link and below is the summary;

    9/22/2010–Introduced.Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act of 2010 or DREAM Act of 2010 – Amends the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 to repeal the provision making unlawful aliens ineligible for higher education benefits based on state residence unless a U.S. citizen or national is eligible for such benefits without regard to state residence. Authorizes the Secretary of Homeland Security to cancel the removal of, and adjust to conditional permanent resident status, an alien who:

    (1) entered the United States before his or her 16th birthday and has been present in the United States for at least five years immediately preceding this Act’s enactment;

    (2) is a person of good moral character;

    (3) is not inadmissible or deportable under specified grounds of the Immigration and Nationality Act;

    (4) has been admitted to an institution of higher education (IHE) or has earned a high school or equivalent diploma;

    (5) from the age of 16 and older, has never been under a final order of exclusion, deportation, or removal; and

    (6) was under age 35 on the date of this Act’s enactment. Requires aliens to apply for such adjustment of status within one year of being admitted to an IHE or earning a high school or equivalent diploma. Sets forth conditions for maintaining such status and having its conditional basis removed. Authorizes an alien who has satisfied the appropriate requirements before this Act’s enactment to petition the Secretary for conditional permanent resident status. Provides for:

    (1) exclusive jurisdiction;

    (2) penalties for false application statements;

    (3) confidentiality;

    (4) higher education assistance; and

    (5) a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report respecting the number of aliens adjusted under this Act.

    Keep your eye on these Senators

    Message from ALIPAC

    Friends of ALIPAC,

    We regret to inform everyone that the Democrats are planning an Amnesty Massacre of our nation to take place on the Monday following the Thanksgiving break. We believe that Pelosi and Reid plan to vote on the Dream Act Amnesty early on Monday November 29 when the press and public will be returning from the holiday. It will be very hard for us to mobilize under these conditions.

    ALIPAC has defeated the Dream Act Amnesty many times before and we are ready to fight and win again with your support! We had hoped that many of us could rest and recuperate after the brutal election cycle, but now we must swing into battle again!

    3 ACTION ITEMS: PLEASE RESPOND QUICKLY AND STRONGLY

    1. We must raise funds for this unexpected Amnesty challenge from Pelosi and Reid. ALIPAC will need to launch emergency measures to help defeat the Dream Act Amnesty as we have before. Please click on this link to donate right away at our secure donations link.

    2. Please help our national press release reach good targets. Please read it and send it to your local media contacts and to your favorite national media shows. Please make sure every talk radio show you know of gets a copy.

    3. Please call your members of Congress and each member of Congress in your state found on our contact list here at this link then proceed to call our 7 US Senate targets.

    Call and tell a staffer this or leave a message and then try to send in a written version. You can be angry and assertive, but do NOT be over the top or threatening.

    “No Dream Act Amnesty! Focus on Jobs for Americans! Enforce our existing immigration and border laws like most of you promised during the elections!”

    Respectfully submitted by SilenceDogood2010 this Twenty Ninth Day of November in the Year of our Lord, Two Thousand Ten.
