DADT, DREAM Act to get Votes During Lame Duck

DADT, DREAM Act to get Votes During Lame Duck. It's now the Lame Duck session of Congress, and Harry Reid has promised that DADT (Don't Ask Don't Tell" and the DREAM Act are going to get votes before the Senate heads home for the holidays.

Tensions on Capital Hill are high, and there are threats that Congress will have to work the weekend to get their agenda pushed through before the new politicians take office.

The unemployment extensions were brought to the House floor, where the resolution was met with resistance and failed to get a 2/3 majority.

As far as DADT goes, Harry Reid says "Our Defense Department supports repealing 'Don't ask, don't tell' as a way to build our all-volunteer armed forces. We need to repeal this discriminatory policy so that any American who wants to defend our country can do so."

The DREAM Act is controversial as well, as it gives amnesty to certain illegal immigrants. Reid Said "If there is a bipartisan bill that makes sense for our country economically, from a national security perspective and one that reflects American values, it is the DREAM Act, Last time we sought to bring up this bill, all Republicans blocked our effort, even though many have been supporters of the DREAM Act in the past. I hope that our Republican colleagues will join me, Sen. Durbin and Democrats in passing this important piece of legislation, now that we have a stand-alone version and that the political season is over."

Do you think that DADT and Dream Act should be on the Lame Duck Agenda, or are Tax Cuts and unemployment extensions more important?

  2. THE DREAM ACT IS AN UNDISCLOSED ROAD TO AMNESTY AND MORE CHAIN MIGRATION

    The Dream Act is not in the law books yet and never should it be? The Dream act is a very clever deception employed to give hundreds and thousands of children of illegal aliens, a financial advantage against out-of-State citizen children or legal residents. The cost will be yet another yoke upon the taxpayers as usual, that shows Liberals remain indifferent to the economic consequences of this law. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada is the main mastermind of the Dream Act along with his hard-core Liberal Extremists like Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and other Liberals. (Some ethical group should question Nancy Pelosi, about the illegal aliens employed on her Central California plantations?)What the progressives are not telling the public is that they can guarantor their immediate family, of Mothers, Fathers, Sisters, Brothers, Uncles and Aunts to live in America that taxpayers will finally have to subsidize? Then that immediate family can then sponsor other family members, which is called Chain Migration.


    There is no finality to this matter and can reach into the future and adjoin millions to our populace. The Dream Act is a very artful piece of law, which is unfair to American school children. Why is it the children of foreign nationals should be given special preferences over the children of citizens? In Houston Texas there is a contentious battle materializing over Voter Fraud. The King Street Patriots are counter suing Democrats over the discovery of Voter Fraud in Harris County. Catherine Engelbrecht, filed a counter suit in Austin on last Monday, claiming defamation. This is because her group detected election abuses disclosed, documented, by the King Street Patriots which included multiple voter registrations, illegal aliens voter registrations, fraudulent voter information, counterfeit voter signatures and election officials and orally harassment of the electorate to either change their ballot choices or vote a straight Democratic label.

  3. This includes the actual engineering the voting machines for the voters and elected officials. In addition to Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, campaigning directly outside polling places. The two organizations suing are Texans for Public Justice and Texans Together Education Fund. Both groups receive their money from the Open Society Institute (OSI). OSI was founded in 1993 by George Soros to "Build Vibrant & Tolerant Democracies." Learn more about the illicit philosophies of the billionaire George Soros, out to undermine and erode our freedoms and the US Constitution by researching the web. My thoughts are from Senator Reid’s state and in other places across the country; that there has been voter manipulation of voter machines without doubt that remains undisclosed. Votes should re-counted in States like California and Nevada, because there are millions of illegal aliens in these states and because of lax voting laws, that are very open to questionable practices.


    The electronic machine in Nevada was compromised by already furnished names as Sen. Harry Reid, when voters had not chosen as this Senator. These voting machines are maintained by the SIEU union technicians that must be questioned for irregularities. A must read is an investigation of Voter Fraud and in depth information about the most corrupt politicians in Washington at www.judicialwatch.org Their statement says it is nonprofit group of Promoting Integrity, Transparency and Accountability in Government, Politics and the Law. GOOGLE--illegal immigration costs of instant citizenship laws for babies born deliberately in America of illegal alien parents to permanently reside here. Google-- costs if an Amnesty is passed by either party. Google--"The dark Side of illegal immigration" Go to the website www.numbersusa.com about the future consequences of out-of-control illegal immigration and a substantiated uncompleted border fence.

  4. Finally this being "politically Correct" is turning our country into a cowering population, another ideology passed onto us by Liberal extremists. We should follow the example of the Israeli Airlines of asking questions and profile instead of using abusive body scanners or this strange sensual pat downs, which is against our civil rights. This "Political Correctness" is not a strong deterrents against stopping foreign nationals with heinous intentions and instead we should use experienced profiler's, racial or not and stop this abhorrent hogwash from radicals, who have infiltrated our government. Now is the time to release your fury on all members of Congress, by calling (202)224-3121 beginning this Thursday?

  6. You keep saying Liberals this, Democrats that. But do you know that Richard Lugar, yes a REPUBLICAN, has been one of the Senators that has actually introduced the DREAM act for voting??
    "Senator Lugar supports this legislation because it encourages young immigrants to continue their education and earn a degree or serve our country in the uniformed services. Current census figures indicate that Indiana is now home to more than 290,000 Hispanics. If enacted, the DREAM Act would allow undocumented college-bound immigrants to apply for a conditional legal status."

  7. The dream act will help the government its not going to increase taxes either because the government will be getting taxes from the students that are going to be given permanent residency under the dream act.Just think 2 million new citizens helping with the taxes and making the society better because they have worked for it and they deserve this! and for the people that say they will take our jobs, they worked for it and they are not taking YOUR jobs they are making their OWN career. The American dream is exactly that and so is the DREAM-ACT!

  10. At this time of thanksgiving I find it embarrassing that I must remind all of the history of this country - a country to which I love as if it were my own. When the British people came over, THEY were immigrants trying to find a better future for them and their families. Did the Natives decline them that right? Did they shun th em away because they were invading their land? Did they make them suffer through the stripping of their families? All because they didn't have papers? Absolutely not!! They welcomed them and helped them through their winter - thus why we celebrate thanksgiving. Why if your ancestors were so nicely welcomed to this country should you shove them away? I think you are focusing on the negative rather than realizing that most, like me,want to help this country up to the place it once was. You argue that we will take away your jobs. Well doesn't it make sense that there should be an equal opportunity to compete for jobs for all members of the nation? Why should immigrants stick to the terrible and underpaid jobs? Besides you are straying too far from the purpose of this bill. This is not an immigration amnesty for it only serves those children that arrived this country before a certain time. This is an education bill. What would you do if they told you that even though you put your life and your childrens life through peril to give them a better education you can't because you would have to pay all college expenses out of pocket? Is wanting a better standard of living such a bad crime? What happened to the pursuit of happiness? Are you going to tell me that doesn't apply to people from other countries because they are not here "lawfully"? It is ignorant to say that the cons outweight the pros in allowing children that have grown to love this country as their own to serve it.
    Go DREAM Act! And go senator Reid!
