The point was this law had ‘loopholes’ built in so they could essentially do what they wanted
all along and legalize all the Mexicans.

hanks you for contacting me regarding the development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) ast if 2007 (S. 774). I appreciate your taking time to share your thoughts with me regarding this matter.
The DREAM Act was introduced in the Senate on March6, 2007, and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary for further consideration. This bill would allow individuals brought into the U.S. before their sixteenth birthdays who are residing in the country illegally the opportunity to pursue a path to legal residency, if they meet certain requirements. They must have been living in the U.S. for more than five years, they must be admitted to college or have a high school diploma or the equivalent and cannot exceed thirty years of age in order to receive legal residency.
The intent of the bill is to offer children and young adults who are pursing an educational, and who were brought to our country not of their own volition, a chance to succeed in this country anc become productive citizens. While I am sympathetic to the humanitarian considerations of this legislation, there are no easy answers to the illegal immigration problem in this country. Rest assured I share your concerns that our immigration laws are being abused and I will work with my colleagues in the Senate to find a balance to address the problems caused by illegal immigration.
Recently, the text of the Dream Act was offered as an amendment to the department of Defense authorization bill in the Senate. However, it did not receive a vote on the floor. Please rest assured that I will keep your thoughts in mind should this legislation come before the Senate for a vote in the future.
Again, I thank you for taking the time to contact me about this issue. If I can be of further assistance with ths or any other matter, please do not hesitate to contact me.
So, to put it in another perspective, if you’re a pedophile and you have been doing it for 5 years and you can pass a GED (which was on the news where they virtually ‘give then out’ in certain places particularly if it solves a political problem) you can have all sins forgiven and you can continue with your work. Oh yes, and after you are forgiven, you can sponsor other pedophiles to ‘be forgiven’.
Believe me, buried in this bill is more loopholes than the “integrity in government.”

The DREAM Act (S. 774) is a nightmare. It is a massive amnesty that extends to the millions of illegal aliens who entered the United States before the age of 16. The illegal alien who applies for this amnesty is immediately rewarded with "conditional" lawful permanent resident (green card) status, which can be converted to a non-conditional green card in short order. The alien can then use his newly acquired status to seek green cards for the parents who brought him in illegally in the first place. In this way, it is also a back door amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens who brought their children with them to the United States.
