Kleinschmidt bill would repeal Texas precursor to DREAM Act
State Rep. Tim Kleinschmidt (R-Lexington) has filed legislation that would abolish Texas law granting in-state tuition to certain undocumented college students. The 2001 law, written by then-state Rep. Rick Noriega (D-Houston), was a precursor to the federal DREAM Act recently defeated by GOP members of the U.S. Senate.
State Rep. Leo Berman (R-Tyler) said he would file legislation to abolish the law if it survives an ongoing legal challenge in Houston, according to a November story in the Texas Independent. At the time, Noriega said that if the law was repealed, “Essentially, we’d be stamping out hope. Frankly, as a Texan, I just don’t think that’s who we are.”
Gov. Rick Perry signed House Bill 1403 into law in June 2001. The Texas Senate passed the bill with a final vote of 27-3 (with GOP Sens. Mike Jackson, Jane Nelson and Jeff Wentworth voting ‘nay’), and the Texas House passed the bill with a final vote of 130-2 (with GOP Reps. Will Hartnett and Jerry Madden voting ‘nay’).
Kleinschmidt’s HB 464 would tie a dependent student’s residency status to his/her parents’ domicile. According to the bill, “A person who is not authorized by law to be present in the United States may not be considered a resident of this state” to qualify for reduced in-state tuition.
The bill would give institutes of higher education the discretion to require students to submit documentation of legal U.S. residence, but stipulates that policies would have to be applied evenly to all students
Want citizenship? Then join the armed forces.
Its incredulous that the Liberal-Democrats would try to win passage of the Dream Act, when a large portion of America has no job? It is reasonable to believe that their was two many giant loopholes, to many waivers for anybody, let alone a lawmaker to pass this insane law. I truly wonder how many Americans–Liberal extremist included read the provisions of the Dream Act? HR 5281 (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act), which was defeated by a narrow margin, revealed a blanket waiver provision on page 5 line 21 Sec. 6 (a)(2). Immediately following all the promises in the bill that only illegal aliens who claim they are under 30, claim they have been in the US 5 years, and claim they were brought here by others when they were under 16, and claim they are going to college or into the military, the waiver allows all of these considerations to be dropped. The Secretary of Homeland Security may waive the… ground of inadmissibility …and the ground of deportability… for humanitarian purposes or family unity or when it is otherwise in the public interest.”. Whats the public interest–an open registration at our colleges, that our own children cannot afford? Another chain migration for immediate family members, adding millions of more people that the US cannot afford to support? The US Tea PARTY members are essentially the voice of all the populace that are being suffocated by more and more taxes.
It seems an absolute insanity that the Liberal progressives led by Senator Harry Reid forced into the last days of the lame Duck session, another Amnesty. Even without the Dream Act not passing prospective non-citizens can join the armed forces through President George Bush Executive Order 13269. Expedited Naturalization of Aliens and Non-citizen, Nationals Serving in an Active-Duty Status during the War on Terrorism: Signed by President Bush of July 3, 2002 Does not this seems strange that nothing was mentioned about this way to resolve the problem?
WHY HASN’T THE LIBERAL PRESS EXPLAINING THIS AVENUE FOR NON-CITIZENS TO GET CITIZENSHIP?
Not the Amnesty of the students, but the parents that would follow after their siblings gain citizenship. As with every stealth Amnesty there is always a cost of politically favoring some ethnic majority? For years under Clinton, Bush and now President Obama they want to load the US taxpayer, with further liabilities. It’s not enough to sell us-lock, stock and barrel–to the Chinese Communists notwithstanding the 14 Trillion dollars, a US treasury commitment, along with massive interest payments. But the do-gooder wants to drain every single penny from the US taxpayer, to accommodate millions of foreign nationals and their families. The chain migration law has been a disgusting travesty, because the original sponsor finally reneges financially on supporting their immediate blood relatives. So eventually the American people have to subsidize the Mothers and Fathers, sisters and brothers and so it goes. It accumulates as the brothers and sisters get married and they have more children. So the unending conveyor belt continues and millions of newcomers are added to the public services.
Entitlements for Americans are already hard pressed, but the politicians keep repeating the same old performance, bringing in cheap labor with low skills that we end up paying for? The Amnesty door or even legal immigration entry never stops, as we import at least a million or more people a year through visa programs. This is outside legal immigration a perimeter that has brought Border States–Sanctuary States–like California, suffering terribly from the millions of illegal and legal immigrants living off food stamps and other public welfare. This has become an assault on common sense as America will eventually become overpopulated. Legal immigrants cannot be issued a visa, without some resemblance of a education. The illegal people who steal through the unsecured borders have hardly any education, don’t speak the same language and finally end up a financial liability with easy access to fraudulent papers.
Believing we only have 13 million illegal nationals is incomprehensible; for every state has an over abundance of laborers on street corners across this nation. We know now that severe enforcement must start in the workplace, by making the new composite version of E-Verify a permanent established verification program for every business large and small. There should be massive fines and mandatory imprisonment, for those who don’t play by the rules. A large force of retired seniors could do the job, paid for by the fines imposed on every American business. Policing laws, such as Arizona’s and integrated with the federal 297 G law, must be for every local police agency. Local sheriffs along the border have been criticized because they have spoken out, about the dangerous border region. The fact that OTM’s Other than Mexican are entering America from countries those are adverse to our culture, our religion.
Many are from countries who wish to do US citizens harm and many are already here Arizona like many other states have been demonized for their anti-illegal alien stance from the open border entities, .who see this great country as free flow of people, with no barriers. When 1 in 6 Americans have not enough food, cannot feed their own families. Why do we keep taking in low skilled workers? Time is here to set our sights on looking after our own, as stated by the united Tea Party. Why are we educating the children of millions of illegal aliens, as with the cramped conditions as seen in California schools to K-12. Why have we become an open freebie for the babies of foreign parents who instantly receive an American birth certificate, which the parents can exploit with welfare and other benefits? Why are these insipid politicians who tried to insist on the passage of the Dream Act for foreigners, when our own children have a limited access to college? How about instead of taxing all the American population to support the millions of aliens, we make long lists of Liberals, and far left wing Democrats from tax rolls and induce them to pay for everybody who absconds from their third world country to come here.
Our own kids cannot even get a seasonable job flipping burgers, since the onset of the illegal alien occupation? Each day our police wage war against people who sell drugs, maim and kill only to discover they are here illegally. Once our hospitals county emergency rooms were orderly and the patient only needed to wait a short period of time for medical services? Today these major hospitals are overrun with illegal aliens and family members with no insurance, who have caused a paralysis amongst the overworked staff. California, like Arizona, Texas and I’m sure New Mexico have been under the onslaught for decades and now the piper must be paid. Years of neglect of a undermanned 2000 mile border where every conceivable criminal has passed easily, where border land owners live daily in fear. Only thousands of military, to enforce the Border Patrol can alleviate some of the illegal immigration pain in this country.
