Dems Hold Military Hostage Over Amnesty

September 16, 2010

The Left has shown its colors once again. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has just attached a provision to a military funding bill that would grant amnesty to a whole class of illegal immigrants.

The provision, known as the DREAM Act, would allow those who can “prove” they illegally broke into this country as children the right to full American citizenship if they attend college or join the military. By hitching this ridiculous measure to a military spending bill, Reid single-handedly proved his subservience to the Open Borders Lobby and held up critical funding for our troops, currently fighting one declared war and one war the president pretends has come to an end.

Obama regularly makes the military pay the price for his domestic policy agenda, whether cutting their budget (and theirs alone), or throwing the government’s case against the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. Our troops deserve better. But this is simply the first move in his full court press for amnesty.

No fewer than six Cabinet secretaries addressed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute public policy conference Monday and Tuesday. Janet Napolitano did her best Joe Isuzu impression, claiming that the Obama administration had secured the border completely. “We have met ever benchmark set,” she lied. The border is “as secure as it ever was,” she continued, adding that the Department of Justice had cleared a backlog of immigration court cases. Then she thundered Congressional Republicans must “quit moving the goal posts” and “fix our broken immigration system” by passing “comprehensive immigration reform.”

That, of course, means amnesty.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
