It was chain migration on STEROIDS: think 2 million amnestied who could bring in ALL who could claim kin to them. Got any idea how many aunts, uncles, cousins, they could have found in the family tree????

Siblings of Dream Act beneficiaries would most likely also be beneficiries of the Dream Act themselves. The problem of Dr

You are absolutely correct rollinson. Our government is stuffed with lawmakers who spend their time dreaming-up schemes to get re-elected rather than doing the business of our country.
