Dreamers: Support Our President in Passing the Dream Act!

As my long time readers know, I am a strong supporter of the Dream Act. Passing the Dream Act is one of the Missions of my Blog.  President Obama and his Administration also support the passage of the Dream Act. He has said so on countless occasions. He has pushed forward several bills and in 2010, a Dream Act was nearly passed. However the Republicans and 6 Blue Dog Democrats ruthlessly defeated it.

I believe that if he is re-elected and we vote in a Democratic Congress, one of the first bills that will be passed is the Dream Act. Many polls indicate that +70% of Americans support its passage.

Knowing all of this is why I am saddened by the Dream Protesters in Arizona (of all places) protesting against the President in support of the Dream Act. Russell Pearce and Joe Arpaio are cheering from their tower offices. The protesters are protesting the rate of deportations during Obama's presidency and somehow connecting that to the failure of the passage of the Dream Act. What the protesters are not understanding is President Obama and his Administration have valiantly tried to pass the Dream Act. They were almost successful in 2010 except for the Republicans and 6 Blue Dog Dems who defeated it.

Additionally, the reason for the high rate of deportation isn't because of the President. It is primarily due to:
1. High rate of Republican states that have passed racial profiling bills like sb1070 and have targeted Latino neighborhoods for arrests.
2. The Obama administration / ICE have reduced the time in Detention Centers/Private Prisons and moved to deport more quickly than the Bush Administration who pandered to private prisons and demanded 180 days in their $100 a day private prisons of their private prison cronies.

In fact, in 2011, the Obama administration updated their policy and only deport the felonious criminals and are not tar getting students or workers at all. The Republicans are very upset by this change.

Romney is a STRONG supporter of the racial profiling bill SB1070. He has also said that if he is elected President and Obama has passed the Dream Act, ON DAY ONE he will VETO the Dream Act. 

Romney said he believes in 100% Mass Deportation/Self Deportation.

Regarding this bogus Republican Dream Act alternative promoted by Romney and HINO Marco Rubio, Kris Kobach  (who is on Team Romney) said the only way that Romney can pass his new version of the Dream Act is if ALL the students self-deport themselves FIRST.

PLEASE, Dear Dream Students, Read and Study the Republican Agenda. They are NOT on our side. They are merely pandering to you, attempting to hoodwink Latinos into voting for them.

We MUST Support our President. If we elect him again and elect a Democratic Congress, they will Pass the Dream Act AND Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

If you want to March, then March in support of helping our President pass the Dream Act on Day One of his re-election.

Oh, I see you are showing your true colors now, ms unloyal American! You admit that laws like sb1070 are the reasons that illegals are getting deported and yet you object to that? What is your reason for not wanting immigration lawbreakers deported? IT IS THE LAW!

Just your usuallying about racial profiling again. You sound like a broken record in here repeating the same old lies over and over and over and over and over again.

Only ethnnocentric Hispanic racists like you and idiotic other lefty liberal idiots want the Dream Act to pass. Smart, loyal Americans don't want the parents of these illegal aliens kids to be rewarded for dragging their kids here illegally by allowing their kids to remain here. We have millions of Americans out of work and college seats are very limited. Why do you want these illegal aliens to be able to remain here and compete for jobs, college seats and tuition against Americans, ms unloyal American?

You won't answer though, will you? You're a stinking coward not to allow only your point of view in here. You do that because you know in the past you have been called out and exposed on every single lie you have told. Can't have that again, now can we? The truth hurts you too much and you will never repent until you are burning in hell. How do you look lying, despicable, hate-filled, racist self in the mirror everyday?

You're full of it if you think that 70% of Americans want the Dream Act passed. I note you didn't provide a link to your poll(probably some lefty biased poll anyway). It is probably 70% of Hispanics that want it passed because they think their ethnic group is special and should be above our immigration laws. How does it feel to be a part of an arrogant, racist, self-centered, anti-American ethnic group?

I didn't delete the comments from the Romney Tea Party supporters so you can see their Hate Filled rhetoric from their own comments.

I try to protect you from their hate so I usually delete their comments so you don't see them

But I am allowing them on this post so you can see what Team Romney is really all about!

KNOW That President Obama and I still SUPPORT YOU!! and we Want to Pass the Dream Act!! Because it is the Right Thing to Do!!!

American Constitution Society : SB 1070 : Obama and the DOJ may be ingenuous, that is somewhat candid, naive, lacking in cunning, artless, extremely innocent, for not invoking the Fourth Amendment - But long term O/DOJ may be successful - The Constitutional Rationale of O/DOJ

"The "immigrant rights" that will be violated by SB 1070 are actually constitutional rights", says a Professor of sociology at The University of Massachusetts Boston : "The DOJ may succeed in protecting immigrants where a strong Fourth Amendment argument might otherwise fail, given the history of recent Supreme Court decisions on these matters".

The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. It was adopted as a response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, which is a type of general search warrant, in the American Revolution. Search and arrest should be limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court, usually by a law enforcement officer, who has sworn by it.

American Constitution Society
Why the Opposition to Ariz.'s Controversial Immigration Law Will Have Little Consequence for 4th Amendment Rights
By Philip A. Kretsedemas, an associate professor of sociology at The University of Massachusetts Boston

Some excerpts :

Local immigration laws pose problems not just because they target immigrants or "illegals" but because they authorize enforcement practices that infringe on the Fourth Amendment rights of all U.S. residents, regardless of legal status. This is one of the main points of the racial profiling complaints that were raised against SB 1070. It is not possible to situate this dilemma in a rights framework unless you are prepared to see how it affects both citizens and noncitizens.

The problem with the legal argument against SB 1070 is that it sidesteps these sorts of concerns. Federal supremacy arguments limit the debate over SB 1070 to the terrain of immigration law and concerns about the law-making powers of federal and local governments. This approach also dovetails with the plenary power that the Executive exercises over noncitizen rights. It reinforces the idea that the federal government exercises a sovereign authority over immigration law that is not shared by state and local governments. So it follows that the immigration law-making powers of local governments can be expanded or limited at the discretion of the federal government, the same way that the federal government can expand or limit the scope of noncitizen rights.

The ingenuous thing about this argument is that it may succeed in protecting immigrants where a strong Fourth Amendment argument might otherwise fail, given the history of recent Supreme Court decisions on these matters. But this doesn't change the fact that it works in the opposite direction of a typical "rights argument." It affirms the power that the federal government wields over the law, instead of affirming a body of rights that are supposed to define the reasonable limits of this power. The end result is a legal argument that protects immigrants, without protecting immigrant rights-and which ignores the fact that the "immigrant rights" that will be violated by SB 1070 are actually constitutional rights.
