Traitor Wu strikes again!
My opinion is that anyone who sponsors illegal aliens, or who is in a position of authority and does not do everything in their power to rid our country of them is guilty of harboring fugitives and should be brought to justice.
This was a notice from Oregonians For Immigration Reform (OFIR). This Wu guy needs to go ASAP. What a traitor to our country and the immigrants who try to follow the rules!!
Congressman David Wu is a cosponsor of the DREAM Act. (H.R.1751).
The DREAM Act if passed would give in-state tuition to illegal aliens, a benefit that would not be extended to American citizens or to legal immigrants from out-of-state.
In addition to reduced tuition, the illegal alien students would be given amnesty and they would in turn be able to sponsor extended family members to come into our country.
At a time when American students are facing increasing tuition rates and fewer classroom slots the DREAM Act is pure insanity.
The cost of giving in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens would be about $13,000 per student per year. Who is going to pay for it? Will Wu go open his own wallet or does he expect American students to pay higher tuition in order to make up for the millions of dollars in lost tuition?
Please call Congressman Wu to let him know how you feel:

The DREAM Act Illegal Alien Amnesty: A Bad Idea at the Worst Possible Time, Says FAIR
Despite overwhelming opposition by the American public when it was first proposed in 2000, the House and the Senate have reintroduced a sweeping illegal alien amnesty bill known as the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.
The legislation is a broad amnesty measure disguised as an educational initiative that would allow millions of illegal aliens who meet a very loose definition of “student” to qualify for green cards. In addition, it provides in-state tuition benefits for illegal aliens that will displace legal residents competing for a fixed number of college admission slots and taxpayer subsidies.
The DREAM Act represents yet another attempt to enact an amnesty for illegal aliens, either in one comprehensive bill, or piecemeal. The DREAM Act would also place severe strains on state budgets and harm middle class families who are struggling to get their own kids through college.
Passage of the DREAM Act would:
- Reward parents who violated immigration laws through their children, and provide a powerful incentive for more illegal immigration.
- Transfer seats and tuition subsidies to illegal aliens at a time when state higher education budgets are being slashed, admissions curtailed, and tuitions increased.
- By broadly defining “student” it gives amnesty to large numbers of illegal aliens who may be pursing any sort of education.
- Accelerate chain migration and exponential population growth because illegal aliens who are granted green cards will be able to petition the Department of Homeland Security in the future to grant their parents and relatives legal status too.
“Once again, Congress is ignoring the interests and concerns of hard-working, law-abiding Americans in order to reward illegal immigrants and pander to the illegal alien lobby,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). “Even as American families are struggling, and nearly every state is facing a budget crisis, Congress is prepared to mandate huge additional burdens in the form of a massive illegal alien amnesty.”
“The American people have made it very clear that they reject amnesty for illegal aliens whether it’s in one comprehensive bill, or piecemeal,” Stein said. to compete for their jobs, but allow them to compete for their own children’s educational opportunities. With private university tuitions already out of reach for most middle class families, and tuitions at public universities rising three times faster than median family incomes, the DREAM Act would be more than a reward for illegal aliens. It would crush the hopes and dreams of countless American families trying to go to college.
