Anti-Latino Republicans in the House Voted to END the Dream Policy! Demand Mass Deportation!

Anti-Latino Republicans in the House unanimously voted to END the Dream Policy -- the policy which allows Dreamers -- young, undocumented immigrants and other people deemed low-priority -- to stay in the U.S.

Far Right Wing, Tea Party extremist, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), was responsible for drafting this amendment and adding it to the Department of Homeland Security spending bill. Democrats on the House floor reacted with boos when this amendment was added to the bill.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in a statement that the vote prohibits the administration “from implementing executive amnesty” without congressional action. "My amendment blocks many of the provisions that are mirrored in the Senate’s ‘Gang of Eight’ bill. If this position holds, no amnesty will reach the President’s desk,” he said.

Regardless of these heinous Republican efforts, Senate Democrats will NOT allow their "Deport Dreamers" amendment to pass. Additionally, our President's spokesman has already said he would NEVER sign it if it reaches his desk.

United We Dream, an advocacy group of young undocumented immigrants, said in a statement that the amendment is "an outrage and the exact opposite of what our country needs from its political leaders." "Does Speaker [John] Boehner want to follow Rep. Steve King’s lead and seal his party’s fate as an out-of-touch, extremist party that has forever marginalized the immigrant and Latino community?" the group continued. "Or will the House take a new direction and pass immigration reform that not only stops the deportations of DREAMers and our families but also creates a clear path to citizenship? It’s up to them. DREAMers will not let politicians get away with this."

Excellent Information Dee .... I am an optimist and I think that the DREAMERS will succeed and will be good American Citizens with great contributions to the American Economy and Society.

Perhaps the Republicans need another painful beating in another Presidential Election.

And that's it.

Dee,

I'm a white Republican who's pro Hispanic and pro immigrant. I believe Hispanic/Latino folks will prevail over the white bigots. Either via Republicans waking up and smelling the refried beans, Lol. Or via getting their butts beat in another election again by way of BROWN OUT! (Big Hispanic turnout to defeat them)

Dee,

I'm a white Republican who's pro Hispanic and pro Immigrant. I believe Hispanic/Latino folks will ultimately prevail over the white bigots! Hispanics will win either through the passing of Comprehensive Immigration Reform or they will defeat the GOP by way of BROWN OUT with their big turnout in the next election using Spanish language ballots! Time for us white guys to wake up and smell the refried beans. Demograpy is Destiny!

Hispanics will prevail by the passage of Comprehensive Immigration Reform now or Hispanic/Latino folks will prevail by defeating the GOP in the next election by way of BROWN OUT (their large numbers showing up to vote with Spanish language ballots!) Demography is Destiny and we white guys better wake up and smell the refried beans!
