President Obama pushes for approval of Dream Act ; David Rivera not so sure

President Obama and Hispanic Democratic leaders met at the White House today to push for approval of the Dream Act -- to give students who are here illegally the chance to stay in the U.S.

"The President and the (Hispanic leaders) believe that, before adjourning, Congress should approve the DREAM Act," the White House said in a statement.

Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart yesterday pushed for the legislation's approval, but it faces a rocky road -- perhaps even among Diaz-Balart's peers: incoming Miami Republican Rep. David Rivera stopped short of saying he backs Diaz-Balart's iniative, saying he'd wants to "work on the issue.

"It's certainly an issue I'd like to make some progress on," Rivera said. "I certainly support the concept of helping those, who through merit, whether it be academic merit or in terms of military service, could have opportunities that they don't have right now."

DANGER! LIBERAL PROGRESSIVES AT WORK.

As for the California high Court allowing illegal immigrants the special privilege of paying in-state tuition. Out-of-State American students who pay full tuition should boycott any College or University that accepts this outrageous ruling and head for an education in Arizona or other reputable institution, that isn't governed by Liberal doctrines? No wonder California is up to its neck in red ink, as the Sacramento assembly is full of Liberal progressives who are brain dead, to the costs added to the growing list of tax burdens on Californians. Millions of American citizens and legal residents cannot pay their bills, have homes in foreclosure or cannot feed their family. Yet the illegal alien invasion has not been stopped, by any administration.


Second to the taxpayers spending issue of welfare for illegal aliens and instant citizenship to babies of foreign nationals that intentionally break our sovereign laws, is the repressive Revenue taxing chaos. I heard Ron Wyden, a Democrat on C-Span lame Duck session of Congress on how to overhaul the tax code for individuals and corporations; making it simpler and to lower the rates but cover more income. It’s logical that jobs wouldn't be spirited overseas if the tax code was fair to everybody, and not an easy mark for the special interest groups to corrupt our politicians by keeping loopholes open for the wealthy. Wyden’s' main emphasis is imposing three tax rates - 15 percent, 25 percent and 35 percent with a limited number of deductions. On mortgages, for example, they would remove the deduction for second homes and allow only the first $500,000 of a mortgage to get a tax break.


Our country is in financial turmoil, because of the huge "tax and spend" Liberal movement of telling the people, we are here to subsidize your every need, as long as you vote for us; Illegal or not? Yes! It’s the illegal immigration issue that has finally become highlighted and emanating as public anger and a growing concern that the government failure to reduce it impact; that a large group of politicians, governors, judges are catering to these people, rather than the majority of the population. It’s another hundred billion dollar deficit that should be stopped immediately and foreign nationals grandfathered out of the country using enforcement of tools like E-Verify, newly customized. Costly yes! But in the long run it will save us trillions of dollars in cash payments and public services that are strained. Prior to inception of the entitlement system in America, there was little attraction for illegal workers and their families. Today--Poverty is threatening America’s stability, that in these economic times, we cannot afford our own families needs; yet we are given taxpayers money to promote good will in other countries.

Nowadays people who are desperate and penniless are pouring across our leaky border, or on one-way-tickets jet liners to this sovereign country. Illegal aliens already know with fraudulent ID they can access our welfare and social services before they even arrive. Europe has already overrun with economic nationals, whose main objective is to collect welfare or free health care treatments. If we enforce our immigration laws, we can cut the US deficit at the federal and even State levels. We should listen to the insight of prominent non-profit organizations as the Heritage Foundation, which claims another Amnesty such as the Dream Act, will further cripple our national deficit. Hundreds of thousands of students as green card holders can sponsor their immediate family. Those newly sponsored once processed, can bring in their family and the chain of immigrants continuous.on and on...? Robert Rector of the Heritage has determined that this Dream Act Amnesty, along with the expenditures of Chain migration will increase our debt by another 2.6 Trillion dollars.


Outside of this another 113 billion dollars is calculable by illegal alien families yearly, through instant citizenship through the 14th Amendment for babies. Much of this money is accountable, by funding to Sanctuary Cities; haven for illegal aliens, gangs and other criminal elements. Taxpayer money should not be giving federal funds to places of so-called Sanctuary Cities and even States, such as California as this is a travesty to our immigration laws. Not fully understanding the tax laws myself, accept paying my families fair share, but realize that the Autistic code has thousands of loopholes for the well-to-do, but gives no-quarter to the general public who end up being audited. Of course simplifying the tax code would mean unemployment. Google the truth that the Liberal press deny or lie about at NumbersUSA and conclude this battle to stop any form of Amnesty, by contacting your Senate or Representative at (202)224-3121 today.

THE DREAM ACT IS BEING APPROACHED AWFULLY WRONG! THEY SHOULD ASLO INCLUDE CHILDREN (WHO ARE NOW ADULTS) THAT HAVE FALLEN IN THE CRACKS OF THE "US IMMIGRATION LEGAL SYSTEM". MANY FORGOTTEN SINCE THE LAST AMNESTY (THE FAMILY UNITY PLAN) THEY SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THIS ACT, MANY REMAINED SINGLE, NEVER STEPPED FOOT-OUT OF US SOIL, HAVE ASSOCIATE & BACHELOR DEGREES ALREADY. THEY, MORE THAN ANY ONE ELSE HAVE ALREADY PROVEN STATUS & DESERVE STRAIGHT CITIZEN SHIP & WOULD NOT HESITATE TO PAY ANY IMMEDIATE FINES!
