President Obama is granting immunity to 800,000 immigrants that have lived and worked in America, but are not eligible to become legal immigrants in this country. “They pledge allegiance to our flag. They are Americans in their hearts, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper,” says Obama. This is part of the Dream Act which was passed over a decade ago for the protection of young immigrants that here to work and study, that allows these youngster to live in the United States without fear of deportation and allows them the opportunity to become a legally working immigrant and citizen. You could say that this act promotes the real American Dream.
Personally, I think this is very necessary. This bill protects all those people who are here in pursuit of the American Dream. You know the American Dream, eat a cheeseburger, say tomorrow is the day I begin that work out regiment, eat another cheeseburger, contemplate killing your boss, eat another cheeseburger, use a ball as a chair, watch hit NBC programming, Catholism; the standard things that Americans dream of. These were all the things the people on the boats that landed in Ellis Island wanted. The only difference will be that young Ecuadorian (let’s call him Raul) will appreciate his freedom of cheeseburgers and fantasized first degree murder a lot more than the schlub who got that Excel Spreadsheet open and the ketchup stain on the front of his Van Huesen dress shirt.
The Dream Act itself has some guidelines, like you have to have come to the US as a child, graduated High School, served in some form of the Military, pursue education, and steer clear of Arizona. Unfortunately there are few guidelines that don’t apply to anyone who live some of the Southern States, and think a stock of wheat is a toothbrush. Those that are protected by the Dream Act are called DREAMers, or as Mitt Romney would like to call them “Keep DREAMin-ers” or cheap labor. Of course Romney doesn’t care too much for these people, which further proves that Romney could be the robot from Terminator that has come back in time to destroy the elections and the American way! Just you watch on December 21, 2012 will be first announce of Bain Capital changing its name to Skynet Capital as a part of rebranding campaign and thus pulling Arnold out of retirement as an ass kicking machine. Have a heart Mitt or get one with all the money you’ve got laying around.
Now the people that given immunity as part of the Dream Act can’t really become citizens. They just become eligible to become legal immigrants of the US and live and work here and get tossed out like our education budget. Maybe that’s why it’s called the Dream Act. Keep Dreamin’ little immigrants, one day you can apply for citizenship and a Republican Senator can say “No you fool!” laugh and make his dreams come true.
