Very persussive argument if you take Chapman's thesis at face value- of course thats the rub what he expresses at face value is quite different in the real world. Lets start with Ronald Reagan- (you know Reagan is quoted as Kennedy was quoted by the liberals -extensively and usually inaccurately)-Reagan signed the amnesty bill in 1986 with the understanding that employers would enforce the existing illegal immigration laws and illegals would not be employed- of course just like his 1 dollar in tax increase for spending decreases of 3 dollars it never happened.--As far as the Dream Act goes well here goes: "An additional provision, often overlooked, would grant illegal aliens in-state tuition rates at public universities."-funny how you .

Error by me: "An additional provision, often overlooked, would grant illegal aliens in-state tuition rates at public universities."- You did refer to it-however seemed to be okay with it.-Thats even worse.

..ignored that eh Stevie boy? Oh thats from Heritage. Another little tidbit:" the DREAM Act rewards those who violated immigration laws by granting them in-state tuition while state laws deny legal aliens on student visas tuition benefits. "--Funny eh Stevie how LEGAL ALIENS ARE HOSED HERE-Hmm.--Another Heritage insight idea:
"Congress and the White House need to focus instead on reforms to the immigration system that will enforce the law, maintain security, and promote the economy. Such a system requires robust enforcement of immigration laws inside the U.S., a secure border, reforms in the visa system, and cooperation with Mexico and other appropriate countries on law enforcement/public safety issues as well as free market initiatives."

...You see Stevie boy: Honestly presenting facts is a problem you seem to have in spades. You seem to want to talk, walk abd act like a liberal with an agenda. And yet you are here on Townhall with Obama's agenda. The least you could do is when you go to your talking points is actually present the opposition view in TOTALITY and not use sound bite leftist points seeking an emotional response from those either dumb enough or lazy enough not to do a little research. Just a little advice. Of course HuffPo and Daily Kos probably have openings.

The bottom line is you want them (the blameless ones) to have more than a citizen or equal to a citizen. ---Hey my dad was an alcoholic and compulsive gambler- I was blameless- why didnt I get a break and get all my education at a reduced rate? Or other perks- it wasnt my fault he blew the money!!!! Waaaaaaa! The natural cry of a liberal in the wilderness.
They sound like a group custom-built and poll-tested to appeal to Republicans: hardworking youngsters with a powerful attachment to America, upright habits and a thirst to join the Army or enroll at State U. But the potential beneficiaries of the Dream Act are getting no love from the GOP.

That's because they are illegal immigrants -- born abroad and brought here as children by parents desperate for a better life. Why they evoke scorn is a mystery. The parents may be faulted for overlooking our laws, but not their offspring, who had no say in the matter.

Many of the kids are as...
