Earlier I noted that Robert Greenwald's Brave New Films was going to start producing immigration documentaries. Their first is a video (link) and site (adreamdeferred.org) supporting the DREAM Act, one of the most anti-American pieces of legislation ever devised. It would let illegal aliens take college discounts and slot from U.S. citizens (illustrated here), thereby giving those foreign citizens a better break than our own citizens and devaluing what citizenship means. As such, it's a direct attack on the entire concept of U.S. citizenship.
The video is oddly titled "A Dream Deferred....does it explode?" I don't know exactly what they mean, but I would have thought threats of physical violence below even them. Yet, I have no interpretation other than that title being a threat of some form of civil disturbance.
The video consists basically of baby-waving and doesn't present any logical argument. It also features California state senator Gil Cedillo, someone whose actions are frequently indistinguishable from those of an actual paid agent of the Mexican government.
The posts at adreamdeferred.org accept comments if you want to let them know what you think. Other than that, I suggest working to discredit those others who promote the site.
UPDATE: Oops! Leighton Woodhouse from the Brave New Foundation posts "Let's Put College in Reach for Hardworking Immigrant Students (VIDEO)" (alternet.org/rights/80643) and gets a more than frosty reception from fellow liberals.
