Secretaries of Education and Labor Met With Illegal Aliens at Ed. Dept. HQ

( - A group of illegal aliens visited the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 15 where they held a “Student Voices” meeting with Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, according to information about the meeting posted on the official Department of Education and Department of Labor websites.

Department of Education Spokesman Jim Bradshaw, while acknowledging receiving questions about the meeting from, failed to respond to those questions after they were put to him via both phone and email messages on Thursday and Friday of this week.

At the meeting, according to the Department of Labor’s website, Duncan told the illegal aliens about the administration’s “efforts to assist students who are undocumented” through the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act—the DREAM Act. Solis also spoke to the illegal aliens about the DREAM Act.

The DREAM Act, sponsored by Senate Democratic Whip Richard Durbin (Ill.), would legalize illegal aliens who had entered the U.S. before their 16th birthday, who had been in the U.S. for at least five years preceding the passage of the act, and who had been admitted to a college or earned a high school diploma or a general education development certificate.

Anyone that has read this blog for ANY length of time already knows how I feel about the infestation of ILLEGALS in America, and the lack of any credible enforcement taking place, so my opinion on the DREAM Act and it’s implementation should come as no surprise.

The DREAM Act (acronym for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors) is an American legislative proposal first introduced in the Senate on August 1, 2001 and most recently reintroduced there on May 11, 2011.

This bill would provide conditional permanent residency to certain illegal aliens of good moral character who graduate from US high schools, arrived in the US as minors, and lived in the country continuously for at least five years prior to the bill’s enactment. If they were to complete two years in the military or two years at a four year institution of higher learning, they would obtain temporary residency for a six year period. Within the six year period, they may qualify if they have “acquired a degree from an institution of higher education in the United States or has completed at least 2 years, in good standing, in a program for a bachelor’s degree or higher degree in the United States” or have “served in the armed services for at least 2 years and, if discharged, has received an honorable discharge”. Military enlistment contracts require an eight year commitment, with active duty commitments typically between four and six years, but as low as two years. “Any alien whose permanent resident status is terminated… shall return to the immigration status the alien had immediately prior to receiving conditional permanent resident status under this Act.” This bill would have included illegal immigrants as old as 35 years of age. DREAM Act

That all sounds well and good, at 1st glance, especially the part about serving honorably in the United States military as a path to citizenship. The part that bothers me is this, “This bill would have included illegal immigrants as old as 35 years of age.”

35 years of age? That’s not disadvantaged youth, that is WETBACK labor that the Dems are hoping to convert to being Obama supporters and Democratic voters.

And another thing, an ILLEGAL that serves in the U.S. military in an attempt to gain his citizenship is a person I can respect. They would have to be willing to lay down their lives for this nation to earn the right to be called a U.S. citizen. That is someone I can welcome with open arms.

But consider this; now that Obama and company are making such drastic cutbacks to the numbers of the U.S. military, will that impede the path to citizens ship if the military is over quota and dumping troops?

Just because some ILLEGAL has been here a certain numbers of years and has managed to get a high school diploma doesn’t give them ANY right to be an American citizen, no matter what their GPA may or may not be.

Let’s face facts, many institutions will graduate people just to get them out of the system, and I don’t mean just ILLEGALS. Think *some* high school and college athletes.

In a December 2010 report, the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation estimated that the November 30th, 2010 version of the DREAM Act would “reduce deficits by about $1.4 billion over the 2011-2020 period and increase government revenues by $2.3 billion over the next 10 years.” The same report also notes that the Act “would increase projected deficits by more than $5 billion in at least one of the four consecutive 10-year periods starting in 2021”. DREAM Act

Billions of dollars? Well hell, why not? I mean, Obama is spending TRILLIONS of U.S. tax dollars, what’s a few billion among friends if it helps increase the Democratic base? Right?

One recent UCLA study estimates that between $1.4 trillion and $3.6 trillion in taxable income would be generated for the economy over a 40 year period based upon estimates ranging between 825,000 and 2.1 million potential DREAM Act beneficiaries successfully obtaining resident status through the legislation. DREAM Act

In 40 years my children will be in their 70’s, and somehow, I just don’t see a TRILLION dollars being all that much money by then, not if the current path America is on isn’t changed, and soon.

I just hope no one ever tells the Dems what comes after a trillion.

    As usual Fred, you’ve got it right. With the democrats its all about votes-votes and more votes. The will not enforce the laws already on the books and seek to pass those that will provide as easy path to citizenship to those border-jumpers already here. They will nibble around the edges and pick the easy targets at first until the door is cracked and then swing the doors wide open for 10’s of millions to be added to the voter rolls. Basically this has already happened in CA and as a result that state will remain in their column in the foreseeable future—they want this for all America. This reminds me of the old Republican Party following the War Between the States when the bloody shirt was waved from 1865-1876 by the victors.

    I’m thinking that maybe all we need ICE for is to actually deport the illegals, it seems like Labor and Education have a sure-fire way to round em up. 😛

    Yeah, I know, it won’t work that way, but it should.

    • Shady says:

      Well Fred this Adminstration blantly thumbs its nose at the law, and not one damn thing is said. Obama and his f*cking thugs have disrespected every single Border Patrol Agent or Federal Agent that has died in the line of duty defending the borders of this Nation. Yet he is willing to loosen up the immigration laws to allow additional illegal aliens into this country. Guess what… one gives a crap; this SOB president is literally destroying this nation right in front of our very eyes and not one thing will be done. The fat cat congress continues to get fat and fill their pockets so they will not rock the pocket.

      As usual Fred, great post. Sorry for the rant buddy, but you know how I feel about this topic.


      • TexasFred says:

        Rant away my friend, we share the very same feelings on this one…

        Some folks rant against ALL that we believe, and expect ME to publish it, I think they need a blog of their own.

        I don’t want a “You’re right Fred” echo chamber but rants like yours is why I have comments, and that wasn’t really a rant, but it was a damned great comment!

        Some piss-ant bastard from Sacramento tried to post a huge LIBBER rant blasting cops 2 days ago, that won’t happen here. 😛

  3. NativeSon says:

    The very first sentence of your post: “A group of illegal aliens visited the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 15…” should have been followed with, …”were arrested, transported and booked and are currently awaiting deportation.” And ended with Reuters (or whatever news agency was reporting….) 🙂

  4. Katie says:

    At the heart of the Liberal agenda is the total influx of illegals into the nation. The Democrats see them as filling the voting rosters since white people are fleeing their party.

    Another term of Obama will find that white America will be a minority in the country and Spanish the national language.

  5. BobF says:

    An illegal can’t serve in our military. They couldn’t pass the required background checks for enlistment. I’ve served with many foreign nationals who were here legally and hoping to become American Citizens. I’ve written letters of recommendation for these men and women to assist them in becoming American Citizens.

    The armed forces are now forcing people out. I know of USAF Academy graduates, pilots, who are being forced out. These are men and women who this nation has hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in and they’re being forced out.

    Wouldn’t this meeting be something like the head of the Food and Drug Administration meeting with crack and meth heads to find better ways to manufacture illegal drugs?

    • TexasFred says:

      Hit that one on the head Bob. But, as far as Obama and Company are concerned, there is no such thing as ILLEGAL, look at Obama and HIS family members that are here illegally. I don’t see any of them being deported, but they can get any and all benefits that a LEGAL American can get.

  6. Bloviating Zeppelin says:

    1. Budgetary figures mean nothing to Demorats. They don’t mean much to arepublicans anymore.
    2. Demorats want the cheap votes.
    3. Many Old School Republicans don’t mind the cheap labor, AND
    4. Will illegals competing for the military push out actual citizens? Makes me wonder….


  7. extex_cop says:

    It would be nice to start deporting a couple of million of them…but since they are here…hire them to protect the southern border. Tell them for each illegal they let cross over…then 2 of them ( the Mexican Guards ) will have to go back. I know it’s like having the fox guard the hen house…but if that fox knows he doesn’t have to share that chicken with 20 others and may lose the one he gets….you know he will keep them away.
    I too believe ever illegal male 18 yrs or over must serve in the US Military for a minimum of 2 yrs or at least one year in combat zone. They do that they deserve to stay as long as they complete their time and released with an Honorable Discharge. I served more time with less benefits than they are to receive.

  8. Patrick Sperry says:

    These never ending insults to America seem to never end. As previously noted, the very first thing that should have been done was an arrest and deportation. So much for respect for the law by this entire administration!

    Also as noted above; Serving in the armed forces could, and should be a requirement for immigrating in my not so damned humble opinion. Even during a time of “RIFing” there could be a place where they could serve. But? Serving requires having a green card, and these folks we are speaking about don’t bother with such trivial things.

    Great post Fred, and great commentary as well!

  9. Bunkerville says:

    Why in the world do we want to have all of these illegals into our military? Now the Muslims can wear their hajabs or whatever the hell it is called. So we let the enemy into our ranks. Stupid is as stupid does.
