Immigration enforcement won't shift if DREAM fails

Full story: KGW-TV Portland

Immigration officers are unlikely to take extraordinary steps to arrest young people in the country illegally should the DREAM Act fail in the Senate.

I'm not prone to latching on to the sob stories. I have seen some kids who came here at very young ages who have made excellent grades and stayed out of trouble. They are the ones being punished for the stupidity of their parents and a lot of them are very Americanized.
I would still fight against any bill written like the DREAM Act that gives benefits to anyone who applies and puts deportation on hold even if there is already a deportation order. I also do not trust our government to throughly screen applicants, they can't even clear up the backlog of people who have applied, some years ago, to come here legally. Luis Gutierrez and his buddies want nothing more than an amnesty for all illegals and any bill that he has a hand in, I will be against. He has already said that his only loyalty is to immigrants and he very carefully leaves out the illegal part.
The way things are now, I would never approve the DREAM Act but if it were rewritten to exclude all except the really good students, and disallow them to sponsor relatives, and there were a board set up to screen all the applicants thoroughly, I might consider it.
I seriously doubt the bill will ever be rewritten without all the back door amnesty perks so it's really a moot point.
I know what you mean, Twink. You are also one of the most active anti-DREAM Act posters here. I didn't mean to offend you. I know you will always do what's right and lawful for our beloved country, even when your kind heart feels sad. And you're right, DREAM will not be rewritten, and even if it was rewritten to OUR specifications, we can't trust the govt to follow through and vet properly.

You know what I think? I think these kids' parents can right their wrong by going back to their home countries and taking the kids with them. One of the things the DREAMers fear is going to a country without their parents. I don't understand why their parents can't do the right thing and go back with them, even if it means starting over. They owe it to their kids.

FedUpWithIllegal s - I will be completely honest here Fedup, my faith was tested to the max more than once regarding this Dream Act nonsense, I questioned the ability of the citizenry and lawmakers to make a strong stand. Well, that question was answered beyond any doubt.
This Dream Act nonsense, IMO, is not dead - it has been shelved for a return at a later time. Possibly in another guise or another ruse, me thinks it will rear its ugly head once again after a while. Ears and eyes open at all times, these loonies still have some tricks up their sleeves. We MUST CONTINUE to keep their feet to the fire -no quarter given and no compromises made with illegal immigration.
Again, thank you for your complete and total commitment to the defeat of this legislation, I look forward to the day when patriots can say this illegal immigration rubbish is subdued and contained.
Yup, if you read the chatter on DREAM sites, they are looking for another way. Now they're saying that it was wrong to attack it like it was a civil right; now they will attack it like it's a HUMAN RIGHT. Uh, hello???

On the bright side, many said they are leaving. Good for them. The sooner they leave, the sooner they can start to rebuild their lives in a country where they are citizens and free.

You didn't offend me at all and you are certainly right that we cannot trust our government. I will continue to fight against anything that smacks of mass amnesty for illegal aliens.
