The dream act is a false and pork laden excuse to send more dollars to Big Education.
Nobody, that I know is opposed to granting a quicker path to citizenship for those brave people who serve in the military.
The rest of the act is a mishmash of lies fed to us by the lefties at the DC cocktail parties whose sole purpose seems to be promoting the Old Bolsheviks Club in higher ed. At present the USA reserves 20,000 immigration slots for graduates of American Universities. This is in addition to allowing educational providers and non profits to bypass the cap all together.
Sorry, but allowing people to get a path to citizenship for reading Marx, Chomsky, Mench, Fanon and study useless Social Sciences is more pork. Let those who want this benefit get Accounting, Engineering and Hard Sciences degrees or reap no benefit. The poster children for this rancid pork filled legislation should be Ayers, Chomsky, Angela Davis and Mental Ward Churchill.
Either higher ed commits itself to depoliticizing its hiring practices or it gets defunded.
