What Julia Preston won't tell you about the DREAM Act (DREAMers, New York Times)
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
Foreign citizens who are here illegally are aggressively agitating to change our laws to suit them, even though those changes will harm U.S. citizens. And, Julia Preston of the New York Times is doing her best to help those foreign citizens.
Preston offers "Young Immigrants Say It's Obama's Time to Act" (link) which starts with a lie: those she discusses aren't "immigrants", they're illegal aliens. While Preston does use "illegal" several times in the piece, those who aren't familiar with these issues might be confused by the various terms she uses for those who are illegal aliens.
But, that's the least of her sins: not once in the piece does she reveal that the DREAM Act would harm both U.S. students and workers, giving both competition for scarce resources (jobs and college educations) in tough economic times.
For what Preston won't tell you, see the last link.
I side with my struggling fellow Americans; Julia Preston and the New York Times side with law changes that harm struggling Americans.
