Re: Fwd: Call Your Senators and Tell Them to Vote NO to DREAM ACT!
This message was sent by FAIR, which is the well know White supremacist anti-immigrant group that funded most of the efforts for SB1070 to be passed. National organizations like NCLR, LULAC, the Rights Working Group, and others continue to work hard to counteract this groups rhetoric and racist attacks on immigrants. But I agree that as a community we also need to do our part and call Senator Kohl and Senator Feingold to support the DREAM Act.

I urge all to take a few minutes and send an e-mail to all three to support the DREAM Act.

Senator Reid Declares He Will Push DREAM Act
Call Your Senators and Tell Them to Vote NO!
In a press conference in the Capitol this afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) announced that he will offer the DREAM Act amnesty bill (S.729) as an amendment to the Department of Defense Authorization Bill. Action on this bill is expected as early as next week! (To see the video of Senator Reid’s press conference, click here.)
Like previous versions of the DREAM Act, S.729 will grant amnesty to illegal aliens who entered the U.S. as minors and meet certain educational requirements or serve in the military. In particular, the bill grants immediate legal status to illegal aliens who have merely enrolled in an institution of higher education or have received a high school diploma. And, while S.729 conditions the ultimate granting of legal permanent residence status upon finishing two years at an institution of higher learning or two years in the military, the bill allows Homeland Security, “in the Secretary’s discretion,” to waive these requirements in their entirety upon the showing of hardship.
In the press conference, Reid described the beneficiaries of this bill as “kids” and “boys and girls,” but S.729 allows illegal aliens up to the age of 35 to be eligible to receive amnesty and qualify for federal student loans. Moreover, S.729 also allows states to provide in-state tuition to illegal aliens—at a time when many Americans can’t afford to send their own students to college. Finally, as a result of S.729, those who receive amnesty may petition for their relatives to be admitted to the U.S. as soon as they reach the age of 21.

We need your help!!! Call your Senators NOW and tell them to vote NO on the DREAM Act! Tell them:
- You want immigration ENFORCEMENT, not another amnesty;
- Amnesty legislation rewards those who broke U.S. immigration laws and only encourages more illegal immigration;
- The DREAM Act unfairly allows illegal alien students to tap federal and state benefits, when those benefits are desperately needed by Americans who are struggling every day to make ends meet.
