Love the First Amendment. It helps us spot the assholes from a safe distance.

Dallas Morning News: Senate defeats DREAM Act over immigration amnesty concerns

The DREAM Act failed in the Senate on Wednesday, dashing the latest and best chance Congress had to pass immigration legislation.

The bill would have paved a path to citizenship for children of illegal immigrants if they attended college or entered the military.

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, was ready with an amendment that might have made the measure more palatable to some Republicans, but the bill did not get that far.

Congress failed to pass comprehensive immigration legislation earlier this year. And some Senators have tried a piecemeal approach, but that does not seem to be working, either – further evidence that the chances of any legislation passing this year are slim.

"The debate has changed," said Sen. Dick Durbin, the bill's sponsor. "There are people who are using this issue politically, creating a lot of fear and spreading a lot of misinformation."

Dick.

The tension created by Congress' failure to overhaul a broken immigration system is evident across the country – where local and state governments are taking it upon themselves to address illegal immigration's problems.

About 40 states, including Texas, have stiffened requirements for driver's licenses, restricting the ability of illegal immigrants to get what many consider an invaluable document. Scores of small communities have passed ordinances to crack down on day-laborer sites. And still others, such as Farmers Branch, have adopted tough rental-housing measures that have been challenged by U.S. lawyers.

Tamar Jacoby, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute who has advised the Texas Employers for Immigration Reform, said the issue is apparently too polarizing.

"The problem is the public is scared and kind of in shock," Ms. Jacoby said, "and members of Congress want to get re-elected and they don't think they can if they go too far on this issue."

Instant Translation: Democracy sucks when the majority is a bunch of poopy heads. [sorry]

The bill's opponents called it another crack at amnesty for law-breakers. The White House indicated it opposed the bill but had not threatened to veto it.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
