Kansas has had its own version of the anti-American concept known as the DREAM Act since 2004. Rep. Lance Kinzer, R-Olathe, tried to repeal it, but a motion from Rep. Mark Treaster, D-Pretty Prairie, forced the bill into their Judiciary Committee, which is apparently the equivalent of trashcanning it. The bill also included provisions apparently similar to California's Prop. 187 and Arizona's Prop. 200.
Maryland's House of Delegates passed a law allowing illegal aliens to take college discounts from U.S. citizens. The national form of this anti-American concept is known as the DREAM Act. One of the leaders on the other side is House Majority Leader Kumar Barve, who is of course a Democrat. And: The debate became emotional on both sides. Del.
The official summary of the Security Through Regularized Immigration and a Vibrant Economy ("STRIVE Act", aka HR1645, aka H.R. 1645, aka HR 1645, aka the "Flake-Gutierrez Massive Illegal Alien Amnesty of 2007") is here. The full text and other details are available here.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune offers the unsigned editorial "Immigration is an asset, not a liability". Virtually everything in the article concerns illegal immigration, which they consistently refer to without the "illegal" qualifier, only using that word twice. Not to put too fine a point on it, the "Strib" is lying to their readers.
IBD discusses Nancy Pelosi supporting the DREAM Act in this editorial: The speaker of the House backs in-state tuition for illegal aliens from neighboring countries but not for American citizens from neighboring states. Arizonans, among others, think otherwise. And, by the way, it's illegal. ...Title 8, Chapter 14, Sec.
Nancy Pelosi spoke at a town hall meeting at Arizona State University in Tempe on Monday, and was joined Reps.
Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) gave the Spanish-language Democrat response to the State of the Union. He spent a few paragraphs on immigration and said the standard things. About the only thing different from what Bush said is that he went even further with the smears. Whereas Bush just said "without animosity and without amnesty", Becerra included the following: On immigration, after years of Republican attacks and inaction, Democrats are ready to lead.
Teresa Watanabe of the Los Angeles Times has a somewhat balanced overview of the issue of illegal alien children in "Children of illegal immigrants are caught in a web of conflicting public policies". It features a few quotes from CIS and FAIR representatives, but it also ends on this PIIPPish note that she or someone else there should take a closer look at: During a recent visit to the Gomezes' tidy Los Angeles apartment, all four family members spoke of the importance of hard work and education. Cesar and Thania's father, Felipe Gomez, who came here illegally in 1990, said his main...
But, you already knew that. Further evidence comes from his pledge to oppose state Rep. Glenn Donnelson's attempt to repeal Utah's law giving illegal aliens discounted college educations: "I'm going to fight it," said Huntsman, who added that he would "very seriously consider vetoing" a repeal.
Texas governor Rick Perry is closely following the George Bush playbook as he came out against attempts to prevent illegal aliens from taking Texas college tuition discounts from U.S. citizens. Some in Texas want to repeal the law he signed six years ago, and he's pledged to oppose their efforts. And, he's also revealed he's a liar:
The usual sources are complaining about the recent Swift & Co raid breaking up mixed-status families (illegal aliens parents, U.S. citizen children). My brief glance at their statements failed to find anyone calling those parents to task for their extreme irresponsibility. Those illegal aliens weren't kidnapped and brought to the U.S. In the vast majority of cases, they came here willingly and fully aware that what they were doing is contrary to our laws. Then, they have children. Shouldn't they bear some responsibility in this matter? Should they have put their children in such a...
Jared Polis is a dotcom multimillionaire who serves as Vice-Chairman of the Colorado State Board of Education. He's also donated large sums of cash to "liberal" causes and candidates. Last year, that Board produced Colorado's guide for illegal aliens, and Polis is also involved with ProgressNow. On November 20, Polis' hard work paid off, as he was given Mexico's "Ohtli" award by their local consul general, Juan Marcos Gutierrez. As shall become clear, receiving that award might be considered a strong indication that the recipient is a Fifth Columnist: ...The award is the highest Mexican...
The Democrats have various plans for different races: "A New Direction for __African-American____ Families", "A New Direction for ____Asian-Pacific Islander-American__ Families", "A New Direction for ___European-American__ Families", er, scratch the last one. Their latest race-based plan is called "Compromiso Democrata con el Pueblo Latino: A New Direction for Latino Families".
It looks like Katie Couric is spreading pro-illegal immigration propaganda. Last night, CBS Evening News' "freeSpeech" segment featured an illegal alien whose identity was concealed. This was the video version of one of the other PIIPPs ("pro-illegal immigration puff pieces") discussed in this category, and like many of the others it promoted the anti-American DREAM Act.
It's time to call Arnold Schwarzenegger yet again: 916-445-2841. This time it's about Gil Cedillo's attempt to take student aid from U.S. citizens and give it to citizens of Mexico who are here illegally.
California already gives illegal aliens the same in-state tuition discounts that U.S. citizens who are residents of California receive. Now, the state Assembly has passed a bill that goes a step further and gives illegal aliens the same rights to financial aid as citizens. The bill is SB 160 (the "California Dream Act") and was authored by state senator Gil Cedillo with the assistance of Gloria Romero.

A new study from the Pew Hispanic Center's Rakesh Kochhar purports to show that the massive immigration over the past 15 years has had little effect on jobs. Needless to say, this gives a glimmer of hope to racial advocates and massive immigration supporters everywhere.

Macarena Hernandez of the Dallas Morning News offers a PIIPP ("pro-illegal immigration puff piece") called "Good kids are counting on Dream Act". As described below, this article is extremely similar to other articles in this genre.
Gil Cedillo is a California state Senator who works tirelessly for his constituents, especially if they're citizens of Mexico who aren't here legally.
Nathaniel Hoffman and Andrew Becker of the Contra Costa Times offer separate articles that support illegal immigration. Hoffman offers "Immigration rights advocates contemplate their next steps". From the headline on down it's completely biased towards supporting illegal immigration and foreign citizens marching in our streets.
Vicente Fox of Mexico is starting a whirlwind tour of the U.S. today which will conclude on Friday. The apparent goal of the tour is to help immigration "reform". However, as with the illegal alien marches, he will end up helping the American side.
Searching through blogs, I ran across a new-to-me site, which says: This Sacramento Bee article really made me start to think about my position on illegal immigration. I'm a strong opponent of general amnesty and extending government services to illegal aliens...
The idea of Hillary Clinton running as the more pro-American candidate seems to have been dashed as she's come out in favor of immigration "reform", i.e., a massive amnesty scheme. She sent a four-page letter to her constituents (which includes illegal aliens) that "steered away from specifics" according to the AP.
A group of illegal aliens and supporters of illegal immigration are planning a large march in Chicago on Friday, March 10: somosunpueblo.com/March%2030/English.htm That page explains that they want to legalize "undocumented immigrants". They also want Illinois to be a "SANCTUARY" for "all immigrants". And, they're calling for a "National GENERAL STRIKE". So, citizens of other countries who are here illegally are marching for rights to which they aren't entitled, and making demands.
Dear Dennie: I understand that either late this month or early next, supporters of illegal immigration - including the Center for Community Change - will be conducting a "Diplomas Not Death" vigil outside your office in Batavia, IL.
That state Senator offers the following letter: Leaders of a Hispanic activist group known as Voces de la Frontera believe that in America, it is better to storm the home of an elected official and yell in their windows after dark to intimidate someone rather than to run for office to change policy.

The following comment came in to this thread about Orrin Hatch's anti-American DREAM Act recently. It was posted from a small college in California's Central Valley. It was all uppercase, which I've converted to lowercase: No one should beg for anything or even beg those racism people like those who make comments in this web site who all they care about is them self and not about others who need some help.
The article "Tests illegals can't pass" is yet another article promoting Orrin Hatch's anti-American DREAM Act. That Act would give discounted college educations to illegal aliens. Out-of-state U.S. citizens would continued being forced to pay the full price. Of course, under no circumstances should a citizen of another country be given a better deal than a U.S.
Discussion of Orrin Hatch's anti-American DREAM Act and similar state laws have been featured here several times in the past. These laws and proposals give illegal aliens discounted college educations but out-of-state U.S. citizens will continue to pay the full price.
Seattle Times editorial columnist Kate Riley offers us "Putting a human face on the immigration debate". Like many other PIIPPs ("pro-illegal immigration puff pieces") it supports Orrin Hatch (R-UT)'s anti-American DREAM Act. That Act would take discounted college educations away from U.S.
[A "PIIPP" is a "pro-illegal immigration puff piece".
Is Orrin Hatch (R-UT)'s explicitly anti-American Dream Act going to be reintroduced in coming months? This article mentions that in passing. That Act gives illegal aliens discounted college educations. Meanwhile, U.S.
The NY Daily News is a repeat offender, having published other PIIPPs ("pro-illegal immigration puff pieces") in the past. Their latest ("Best & brightest in bind") starts with this: Carlos will graduate with honors from Brooklyn College next month with a mathematics degree. It's a subject he loves and hopes to teach one day to elementary school students... The tear-jerking story goes on to explain that he's "undocumented", and thus won't be able to find a job.
One of America's finest legislators, John Conyers, has released the results of an FOIA request concerning exposed gay person and alleged fake journalist Jeff Gannon, a.k.a. James Guckert. It appears he visited the White House many times without signing in or signing out each time.
