GOP, Dems Plotting ‘DREAM Act’ for Illegal Aliens
Establishment Republicans and Democrats are teaming up on Capitol Hill to bring back legislation that would give amnesty to hundreds of thousands of young illegal aliens in the United States.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Dick Durbin (R-IL) are working on a replica version of the Obama-era “DREAM Act,” according to McClatchy, which has long been supported by Democrats and the Republican establishment.
When asked about working with Graham on resurrecting the amnesty legislation, Graham responded “We’re working on it. We’ll see.”
Under the legislation, the hundreds of thousands of young illegal aliens currently being protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, created by former President Obama, would be given legal status and potentially a pathway to citizenship.
Center for Immigration Studies Director Mark Krikorian told Breitbart Texas that if amnesty is being considered for the young illegal aliens, often referred to as DREAMers, then cutting down legal immigration levels should also be on the table.
