McCain's only concern with the DREAM Act is the politics of it: he wants it to be part of a comprehensive immigration reform bill because other Senators would make various requirements.

How he's wrong about immigration will be discussed below. First, here are two snippets showing his...

Dream Act re-introduced: you need to organize local efforts to block it - 03/27/09

The anti-American DREAM Act was re-introduced yesterday in the House and the Senate. The bill is an amnesty for a potentially large number of younger illegal aliens, and it would allow those covered under the bill to take college discounts from U.S. citizens. In other words, because of this bill, some U.S. citizens will have their college educations taken away from them by former illegal aliens....

Is it correct to doubt Barack Obama's patriotism, as Joe the Plumber did? - 11/02/08

Ali Frick from ThinkProgress - whose parent fund is linked to the Obama campaign - breathlessly informs us that "Joe the Plumber" apparently just said something we're supposed to be shocked about (link): McCain has fought and bled for our country, and loves our country.

John McCain "flip-flops", will support "comprehensive immigration reform"; DNC still concept-challenged - 05/07/08

John McCain has "flip-flopped" on immigration.
