There are no charges. Senator Amy Klobuchar U.S. Senate, 302 Hart Senate Office Building Washington, DC 20510 Dear Senator Klobuchar(D-MN): How dare Majority Leader Reid even consider trying to force the DREAM Act amnesty through Congress during the lame duck session, and how dare you support this amnesty against the will and wishes of the American people? Do you really have so little respect for the 22 million Americans who cannot find a job? I hope you will do the right thing and change your mind and begin to oppose this backhanded attempt to amnesty millions of illegal aliens. The DREAM Act would give out millions of additional 10-year work permits at a time of 9.8 percent unemployment. Even people who don't qualify in the first place -- or who do qualify for the provisional amnesty but never meet the educational criteria later -- all of them can get a 10-year work permit from the start. Applicants merely have to claim -- not provide evidence -- that they meet criteria of having been brought to the U.S. before age 16 and being under the age of 30 at time of enactment and being present in the U.S. at least 5 years before enactment of the amnesty, among other criteria. Once they allege these minimal criteria, the illegal aliens are given "conditional lawful permanent resident status" and are given a 10-year work permit to compete directly with the 22 million Americans who want a full-time job but can't find one. Estimates suggest that up to 2 million illegal aliens could legitimately qualify for the opening application, and perhaps a couple million more might be or look young enough to fraudulently apply. Those millions would immediately be able to legally compete for any U.S. job. The DREAM amnesty allows those who fail to meet any of the criteria after 10 years to file a claim of hardship. The US Citizenship & Immigration Services agency is given the right to issue waivers and allow these illegal aliens to stay. Why, at this time of 9.8 percent unemployment, is this Lame Duck considering a giant increase the job competition for unemployed Americans? Unable to comprehend your actions, Mr. Douglas Braker Also, do not forget to call.
