You can't keep a bad idea down, at least not in Washington. The whole amnesty thing is like some creature from a bad horror movie that you just can't kill. To make things worse, this time they're trying to tie it on as a amendment to the Defense authorization bill. Amazing. (well, not really). Check this  out:
A policy analyst at a prominent conservative think tank says amnesty legislation being offered by Senate Democrats in the form of an amendment to the Defense bill -- may be dubbed the "Dream Act," but in reality it is a "nightmare."
The measure sponsored by Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) would provide amnesty to any illegal alien who claims to have entered the U.S. before the age of 16. It would also award illegal aliens with taxpayer-funded in-state tuition at American colleges and universities. ...
Under this proposed amendment, there would be no age limit. ...someone who is 65 years of age could claim that they were brought to the U.S. while they were less than 16 years of age. ...
...the "usual suspects" are behind this so-called "Dream Act", the Council of La Raza and other such pro-amnesty groups.
