What in the hell is Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin doing now?

Pretending that this is a bi-partisan decision, Sens. Durbin and Graham introduce DREAM Act that would grant amnesty and work permits to 2 million illegal aliens


{Numbers USA] It was less than a year ago that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called Obama's DACA executive amnesty "unconstitutional". Now, he wants to make it law of the land!

Sen. Graham joined Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) on Thursday to introduce a new version of the DREAM Act, and like its predecessors, it would grant amnesty and work permits to approximately 2 million illegal aliens. Most of you are familiar with the details. It would grant amnesty to any illegal alien who:

• Entered the country before his/her 17th birthday;
• Maintained continuous presence in the United States for at least 4 years (although there are exceptions to the rule);
• Can pass a background check;
• Passes an English test; and
• Is either admitted to a U.S. college or university; or graduated from high school; or obtained a GED or a high school equivalency diploma; or is currently in high school or working towards a GED.

Although the bill's text has yet to be released, according to analysis posted to Sen. Durbin's website, there is no cap on the number of illegal aliens that can receive the amnesty and no end date. Further, the bill protects any illegal alien between the ages of 5 and 17 from removal, assuming that alien will be eligible for the amnesty once he/she reaches the age of 17. That means that any foreign nationals who can sneak into the country with young children in the future can all but guarantee their children U.S. citizenship. It's the amnesty that keeps on giving!

Once the amnestied illegal aliens have completed two years of college or military service, or worked a full-time job for three years, the DHS Secretary must adjust their conditional legal status to Legal Permanent Resident. Because their conditional status counts toward their naturalization requirements, illegal aliens could receive U.S. citizenship in as little as five years from the bill's enactment date.

The bill also repeals the 1996 law that makes illegal aliens ineligible for in-state tuition benefits. The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that this could cost U.S. taxpayers as much as $6.2 billion!
