Not content with helping her party destroy the economy and nationalizing everything they could get their hands on…
Speaker Pelosi wants to push the DREAM Act Amnesty plan next week in the House.


The Politico
reported:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to push for a vote during the lame-duck session on a bill that would legalize young, undocumented immigrants if they attend college or serve in the military, according to Democratic sources familiar with a leadership conference call Wednesday.

A vote on the bill, known as the DREAM Act, could come as early as next week, the sources said. Pelosi asked Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.) and Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) to assess the mood of the caucus, according to one source.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) had previously announced that he plans to bring up the DREAM Act during the lame duck session. His spokesman said Wednesday that Reid still hopes to call a vote.

The move by Democratic leaders to put immigration back on the legislative calendar will win support from Latinos, whose strong turnout numbers in the West last week were credited with helping the party hold on to control of the Senate. Immigration advocates have pressed Democrats to move on the DREAM Act as a “down-payment” on their promise to push for a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the future.

But Democrats also risk appearing out of sync with voters, who sent a message during the midterm election that they want lawmakers to focus on job creation.

  1. Are they goign to vote on the UNiversal Draft, too? It was reintroduced in July. Just sitting there waiting for an apportune moment.

  2. But Democrats also risk appearing out of sync with voters, who sent a message during the midterm election that they want lawmakers to focus on job creation.

    The Politico writer who penned that must be out of touch, too. Otherwise, s/he would know that a good number of those who will be signing this amnesty bill won’t be coming back in Jan 2011, and some of the others won’t be in congress when Jan 2013 rolls around.

  3. Nancy is only interested in destruction of the American dream. She needs to go, NOW!

  4. This is California mind you. Nothing makes sense here. The land of make believe. Free handouts=votes for the gift givers.

    But hey, I’m just a stupid conservative. I can barely read and I sure can’t do any math. I need help. Here’s an example:

    California reported that it’s borrowing $40M per day to pay unemployment benefits. I’m pretty sure $40M=$40 Million Dollars per day right?

    Well….the population of California is reported at 36,961,664 – Jul 2009 US Census.

    So that’s a little more than $1 Million dollars per DAY/per PERSON in the State of CA right?

    Besides my own $1M per day benefit check, I’m missing something here. Maybe Pelosi can help.

  5. “Makin’ a list,
    and checkin’ it twice…
    Gonna find out who’s
    unemployed in 2 yrs, nice!”

    Hey congressional wives,and husbands,
    sharpen up those job skills. Know Excell?
    CSS Dreamweaver? Got some good shoes and
    yr resume at the ready?
    Pass that Dream Act and Your Worse Nightmare
    is on its way….
    .”..Unemployment is coning to YOU”

  6. nancy pelosi must be investigated and tried

  7. Pelosi=traitor to the Constitution and the United States.

  8. Anyone ever see a civil war actually start ?

    I’m just sayin’……

  9. Anyone who puts their life on the line in the military deserves amnesty….just sayin

    college, not so deserving.

  10. DREAM act?

    More like NIGHTMARE act.

    Hey Nancy, this crap isn’t working in Europe. No, it’s not. It’s totally NOT working. Don’t believe it? Get over here. Leave the tourist and upper class areas and go into the working class Europe, the tax payer Europe.

    It’s a powder keg waiting for a spark.

    How many would that even be? None?

    Last I checked you need a green card if you’re a foreigner and want to serve in the US armed forces. And the green card has certain requirements. You won’t get one as illegal immigrant.

  12. This is all bluster. Considering the remaining Dem Reps are up for re-election in 2 years, passing anything far left right now would be political suicide…and for who?…Pelosi?

    P.S., I am starting to think that the whole thing of Pelosi running for Minority Leader is a fakeout. She has no intention of taking the post. It is just a chance for the Dems to stand up and say “No!” to Pelosi to “appear” to be moderating. I smell BS.

  13. The Dems will stick knives in us until we take control out of their hands. Amazing that some Republicans want to compromise with those traitors.

  14. Oh, this is no fakeout. This is a desperate party that just got their clocks cleaned, despite cheating their asses off, determined to import some new voters for 2012.

    Look for them to use as many dirty tricks to pass this as they can think of.

    Republicans in the Senate should filibuster it on the grounds that the American people have just overwhelmingly voted “no confidence” in this congress, and they have no business pushing anything but basic housekeeping in their remaining time.

    All well and good except that this then legalizes the entire family. And one other thing: when I was a good Army wife, privates made $89 a MONTH. These days being in the military is the best paying job around for a high school graduate with no training at anything and not a single day of college. $1447.20 a month in basic training – plus room, board, clothing, fully paid medical, fully paid life insurance & deep discounts at the PX.

    Now, if they actually serve in a combat zone, then maybe so . . .

  16. Military personnel already have an easy path to citizenship…

    http://www.military.com/benefits/legal-matters/streamlined-citizenship-for-servicemembers-and-veterans

    “Recent changes in the relevant sections of the INA (Sections 328 and 329) make it easier for qualified military personnel and veterans to become U.S. citizens if they choose to file a naturalization application.

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has created a streamlined process specifically for military personnel serving in active-duty status or have recently been discharged.”

    …So this bit about helping soldiers is just put in there to make it harder for anybody to vote against the act. All you really have to to do is sign up for a community college and your whole family becomes Americans.

    This is blanket amnesty straight up, pure and simple.

  17. Did anyone not see this coming with the refusal to seat Mark Kirk immediately?
