But wait … it gets better. As initially explained to us, the purpose of the Dream Act was to do the right thing by those poor illegal aliens dragged to America by their illegal parents (who are now progressive movement policy makers). If they graduated from an American high school, enrolled in college for five seconds, served as first responders or a hitch in the military services, then they could petition the government to become lawful citizens. After all, it wasn’t their fault.
Because in an environment where between 8.9 and 20% of the American people are unemployed, Obama grants legal status to over a million more people —all of whom are now legally competing for American jobs.
Of course, no one in the Obama administration is calling this amnesty. To them, it’s mere “Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” —which brings us back to the title of this post: more progressive lies and distortions. And hopefully, if they can get this done in time for the November elections … well, you know.
