Does Senator Dick Durbin really think illegals can be president one day? Seriously?

Is he not familiar with the requirements of President of the United States? Is this bone head really making decisions for our country? Sigh. What next, the island of Guam tipping over again?

There were lots of young people in the audience, not all of them illegal immigrants. As for the rest of Durbin's speech, I agreed with every single word of it. We need to provide a way for these children to become citizens.

It's not you. I get four different videos showing up, none of them of Durbin or anything related to him.

ITA - We do not know that ONLY DA kids were in the audience. They weren't the total audience as far as I can tell.

Isn't it amazing the lengths some will go to to avoid seeing things for what they are. Most of those very people are the ones who claim they have an "open mind" yet they cannot see what is happening right in front of their face.

As far as the lack of civility on these boards, that is nothing new. In fact, it's typical. I just report it now.

"Why the comment about the video then?"
The comment about the video? I have no clue what you are talking about.

"BTW, I have always been conditional on whether there were U.S. born people in the crowd which Durbin addressed. That's the whole point of the word "if". "
Sure, that's how you meant it. Clearly I was arguing with myself the entire time.

"I suggest reading posts more carefully. '
Really? Such civility.

Exactly, and he was clearly addressing the Dream Act students as the subjects of his speech.
That was the whole purpose, he wants the Dream Act passed for illegal residents as described in the Dream Act.

Dreamers US born? Really. The Dream Act is a pathway to legal resident status for illegal immigrants, therefore they cannot be born in the US.

My post was intended for you.
