So, Republicans have predictably jumped on the “Dream Act” bandwagon with both feet. After all, they have two free years before they have to pretend to be conservative again. The GOP is a false alternative, you have no voice if you’re not liberal.
Kyl is from Arizona, of all places, and Hutchison is from Texas:
‘GOP Sens. Jon Kyl and Kay Bailey Hutchison said they have introduced a bill that would reward those who take college classes or join the military.
“We have got to get this ball rolling,” said Mr. Kyl, an Arizona Republican who is retiring this year. “We have to have a discussion that is sensible, that is calm.”’
One thing that jumps out is the fact that he is retiring and has nothing to lose.
“The legislation would reward students with higher status the further along they are in pursuing their education. Those who earn a four-year college degree or complete military service could apply for a permanent visa that wouldn’t put them on a new path to citizenship, but would allow them to join existing lines by getting married to a U.S. citizen or finding another opportunity to adjust their status.”
