Republican Congressvarmint Jon Kyl (God Bless Him, Arizona) has an immigration DREAM Act all his own.
Realistically, young people frequently get married. In this country, the biggest marriage pool are U.S. citizens. A U.S. citizen can petition for a spouse to become a citizen in a very short time…so I don’t think it’s any big secret that a lot of people who might participate in this program are going to have a very quick path to citizenship, if that’s the path they choose.
So, Kyl’s idea of a DREAM Act is not to finish college and apply for citizenship, but to grow up and marry a citizen, because the last damn thing this country needs is a bunch of educated Mexicans.
However, marriage is an economy booster. Let’s see … wedding chapel, bridesmaid dresses, hairdressers, photographers, honeymoon travel, divorce lawyer ….
Thanks to Deb for the heads up.
