The DREAM Act refuses to die, now resurfacing in an yet another obscure amendment to yet another Senate appropriations bill. Every time the people rise up and enough Republican votes are garnered to kill this thing, the Dems just re-introduce it again. The Dems believe if they keep this up, eventually the people will tire of the game; are they right? :

Our sources tell us that the DREAM Act will be offered as an amendment to the Labor, Health and Human Services Appropriations bill (H.R. 3043) on the Senate floor, most likely late TODAY or TOMORROW. Things are moving so quickly that even Senate staffers don’t have the text of the amendment!

Nevertheless, WE know the DREAM Act grants amnesty to illegal aliens who entered the U.S. before the age of 16. And those who are granted amnesty may later petition the Department of Homeland Security to grant their parents legal status.

Also, if past versions are an indicator, the amendment will have no caps on the numbers, no age limit on applicants, will allow “conditional legal permanent resident status” to be extended indefinitely, and will provide for retroactive benefits. We can also expect the amendment to authorize in-state tuition to illegal aliens and make illegal aliens who receive conditional LPR status eligible for federal financial aid.

Meanwhile Senator Vitter of Louisiana has introduced an amendment that would deny funding for Federal COPS grants to so-called sanctuary cities. About time someone had the guts to do this.

Call your Senator now to communicate: HELL NO on the DREAM amendment; and YES on denying federal COPS grants to Sanctuary Cities. And tell them you are sick and tired of their playing childish mind games with the American public. They think we report to them; we need to remind them that they report to us...

Michelle has it exactly right:

Sanctuary Nation or Sovereign Nation: It’s your choice.
