The Dream Act has failed. And, the Democrats act as though justice was NOT served.
How would justice be served by allowing an illegal act to legalize the beginning of the process of citizenship? Illegal acts should NOT confer any benefits and citizenship is certainly a benefit! So, there is no way to justify such a law. Read the headline below. The key word is ILLEGAL!
Senate Blocks Bill for Young Illegal Immigrants

Democrats don’t seem to understand the Constitution of the United States and frequently steam ahead, as Barbara Boxer promises to do, to get their way. Witness the passage of Obamacare. Witness the suppression of any dissent as when they called tea party members by a variety of vile names.
It is past time for our representatives to actually represent us and not try to use political maneuvers, such as the Dream Act, to stay in office.
Martin Luther King had a dream of equality for everyone, but endorsing an illegal act is giving that criminal more power and rights than the average American citizen.
Congratulations, Congress, for choosing the right answer to whether we follow the Constitution about criminal acts, including illegal aliens, or whether we do whatever suits the politicians of the moment.
The Dream Act was an illegal dream for illegal aliens and a potential nightmare for the rest of us. Thank goodness for the daylight of common sense that finally permeated Congress’ decision. The result makes for pleasant dreams to all of us who believe in the rule of Law, not the rule of politicians!
