    The only problem Amnesty will solve is: "How do we start a Civil War in this country?"

    As far as the Nightmare/Dream Act.

    It will NEVER happen!

    Source(s): Amnesty= Civil War.

    One of the requirements to become a naturalized citizen is an Oath of Allegiance to the Constitution and the United States. In that oath, the citizen want-to-be swears:

    "That I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; That I will support and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; That I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law ... "

    Should anything less be expected of an illegal alien before we even think of granting them citizenship? How is granting de facto citizenship to illegal aliens, especially through a guest worker program with its Mickey Mouse "path to citizenship" being fair to the millions who are waiting in line to become legal immigrants? The price for an illegal alien to receive one of the most coveted rewards on planet earth should not be simply that they picked lettuce for a few years or faithfully flipped burgers, cleaned toilets or dug ditches. There are millions of potential legal immigrants who would gladly do those jobs.

    Nor should we allow an illegal alien to simply pay some miserly fine to receive amnesty - becoming an American is not for sale at any price!

    Given that there is a legal way to become an American and millions have eschewed that way and are in the United States illegally and it is not plausible to round the law breakers up and send them back, what are we to do?

    First and foremost, no purchased amnesty! America is not for sale! Becoming an American is a privilege, not a right of "being here." Too many Americans have died preserving freedom to allow citizenship akin to paying a ticket for parking fines. The violation of our sovereignty and the law breaking must be punished and citizenship must be earned. It is because of the failure of our elected politicians that we have the problem and it is only through the magnanimity and generosity of America that we would even consider granting citizenship to lawbreakers.

    The Dream Act would not help in any way shape or form.with jobs or anything else in this nation Its just another form of amnesty.It has failed 3 times to be passed and its not being really considered at this time.
