Democrats the Dream Act and Don't Ask Don't Tell
The U.S. Senate addressing an appropriation bill for the USA military defeated an attempted hijacking by the leadership of the Democratic Party in the Senate.
The legislation was to provide money for the USA military and a pay raise for them. The Democrats attached a provision that would have ended “Don’t ask don’t tell.” Such a provision had no place being attached to an appropriation bill. The Democrats also attached the “Dream Act,” and a revision to that act.
The “Dream Act” provided for the children of illegal immigrants brought into the USA while under age 15. If when attaining the age to join the USA military they join and serve honorable, they get permanent residence status on the road to full citizenship. The Democrats then expanded to also mean those attending college without ever serving in the military.
