Illegals Say "NO" To Military Dream Act
Now that Obama has circumvented Congress, and the Constitution, I am reprinting an earlier blog which addressed the reaction to the Republican proposal to allow citizenship with military service.
One of the problems I've had with the illegal invasion has been the total lack of loyalty to a country from which they are deriving billions in social service benefits. Even the "legalized through amnesty" Mexicans have no love for America as they demonstrate by exporting billions of American dollars back to Mexico each year.
The Obama/Reid/Pelosi regime have been at the forefront of support for Open Borders, Amnesty and a proposed Dream Act, initially written for Mexican born kids, but expanded to cover those all the way to age 47. As with previous "amnesties", not much is expected from these illegal youth.
Conservatives believe that proposals such as the Dream Act only serve as a future magnet for further invasion since the expectations that, once they are here illegally, they will eventually get amnesty. As we have learned the hard way, any form of amnesty leads to even larger waves of illegal invasion.
Both of the leading Republican candidates for President recently proposed that illegal youth opt to serve four years of military service in order to "earn" their citizenship. I proposed this option in an earlier blog last year. I also offered the idea that, in lieu of military service, these illegal youth serve in the Peace Corp or some other meaningful community service program. It is imperative that we demand some form of loyalty commitment to this country if we are ever to get a handle on this.
Well, the other night during the Presidential debate, both Gingrich and Romney proposed a Military Dream Act that would award citizenship to any youth here illegally who chose to serve in the military.
What was the reaction from the illegal community?
Well, yesterday, a Miss Hidalgo was interviewed on CNN and, with huge crocodile tears, cried that it was unfair for to have to serve in the military. I quote: "Why should I have to waste four years of my life serving in the military?" As she shed a river of tears she said she should be able to be awarded minority scholarships, in-state tuition breaks and Pell grants to attend school.
Does anyone find this troubling? How many of our young Americans have "wasted" their years in service to their country? But God help if we ask someone who has lived here illegally, partaken of every health, education and welfare program to ever think of giving something back to their country.
CNN just announced that a huge illegal immigration rally is scheduled in Nevada today in protest of both Gingrich and Romney's proposal that they be required to serve to attain citizenship.
I say to them: "Go to Hell...and go back to Mexico!
