Korean Media: Killing the DREAM Act is 'Un-American'

"Closing the book on the epic of America." That’s how an editorial in the Korea Daily describes the potential quashing of the DREAM Act (Development Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act) when it goes up for a vote next week in the Republican-controlled Senate.

The bill, which passed the Democrat-controlled House last week and enjoys the support of President Obama, would give undocumented students a path to citizenship provided they are working toward a college degree or serving in the armed forces. Republicans are widely expected to reject the bill.

The late writer and historian James Truslow Adams first coined the term "epic of America" to describe a nation where “life is better and fuller for everyone,” and where opportunity abounds for everyone.

Urging the Senate to pass the bill, the Korea Daily editorial says doing so would ensure that we “live up to the very values” on which the United States was founded.

“Targeting undocumented youth,” the Korea Daily editorial states, “is flatly un-American and violates the principles of this country.”

Life cannot be better and fuller for everyone in the US if we do not have immigration laws that are enforced, just as every other nation does. We already have a very generous immigration system that is the most generous on the planet. US Citizens expect and demand that their government enforce all laws, even the immigration laws. How many people does Korea admit each year as immigrants? How many illegal immigrants live in Korea while the government looks the other way?

Yes to the Dream ACT

I hope the Dream ACT passes in the Senate sometime in December of 2010. I know the chances are slim, but it's better than nothing.

Pass the Dream ACT in the Senate NOW.

I would be for the dream act if:
1) the age limit was 25.
2) Attending college or the military was Mandatory (remove the hardship clause)
3) No tax-payer funded education
4) Dream act students could not sponsor relatives for citizenship who entered the USA illegally as adults. There are just too many loopholes in thie version of the dream act.

Korea is now a rich, First World country.

When the day comes that Korea allows Americans to overstay their visas there and pay for 12 years of free public education for American children of illegal American immigrants, let me know.

In the meantime, don't ask Americans to give you space in our taxpayer supported public universities.

It's bad enough that we turn a blind eye to poor illegal immigrants. It's absolutely insane for the U.S. to put up with illegal immigrants from rich Asian and European countries.

No recent Korean illegal immigrants came here oppressed, poor and afraid. Your demands are an insult. Shame on you.

I really don't need some Korean editor telling me about America. What he fails to mention
is that America wouldn't work if we didn't have a true and abiding respect for our system of laws.

These "Dreamers" have taken advantage of us as well as broken the laws. I hope they are all deported. I have found very few that deserve to stay.
