Christie to sign version of ‘Dream Act’ into law

One month after winning his re-election campaign, Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he would sign a version of the “Dream Act” into state law. The state Legislature is expected to vote Thursday afternoon on the agreement made with Christie, and the governor’s office said he is ready to sign it.

The move will offer undocumented immigrant students in-state tuition, but will not allow them to receive state financial aid.

“I want to work it out, because I want this to happen for the young men and women in this state,” Christie said in a press conference last week. “But I won’t be taken to the cleaners, so let’s all be fair with each other. You want compromise? Let’s compromise. Let’s be smart.”

The governor garnered 51 percent of the Latino vote in his re-election bid last month. He promised in October to take up the issue.

“I believe that every child should be given the opportunity to reach their God-given potential. That’s a moral requirement,” Christie said Oct. 12 to the Latino Leadership Alliance of New Jersey. “And we need to work together to make sure that that happens. We need to make sure that we continue to work on the issues that will make those children believe that they have a bigger and brighter future. We need to get to work in the state Legislature on things like making sure there’s tuition equality for everyone in New Jersey.”

    Being a firm believer in my Lord Jesus Christ, I believe everyone is morally responsible to assure everyone has a better life, but that doesn’t mean we should kowtow to the idea that anyone who breaks our laws is entitled to free welfare, food stamps, education, and job preference over the people who pay our countries taxes. That is why I make offerings to my christian organizations whose missionaries improve peoples lives within their own countries.
    What I don’t understand, is why these people can come to our country and protest on our streets, but they don’t do it in their own country! Could you imagine what an impact 20 million people could make if they hit their own streets? And where are the people here whose jobs these people are taking?
    Why aren’t they hitting our streets protesting the fact these illegals are taking their jobs? Is it because U.S. citizens feel they are too good for the jobs? Are they comfortable settling for crumbs from the elite politicians/tax payers tables?
    Have they fallen for the lie that everyone should have a college education(even if they’re not made for college)? Being involved in construction, I have seen illegal aliens doing jobs which pay good wages e.g…heavy equipment operators, painters, drywall, masonry, carpentry, carpeting. I have had 3 close friends who have lost their small businesses due to inability to compete with illegal aliens prices/wages. I guess they could have if they employed illegals, but they refused to do so. I have also spoken with very many illegals(who could understand me/me them), and have found they have no desire to learn english or really become citizens, as they would lose gov’t benefits and wouldn’t be able to send as much money as they do back to their respective countries.

    Christi is a north east liberal who pawns himself off as a Conservative
    Republican to get elected. His actions speak louder than all his so
    called claim to being a GOP Conservative. His action out him as either
    a RINO by his actions or a very moderate Socialist Democrat, either
    way he is pandering to the Criminal Illegal Aliens at the expense of the
    voter in his state. That alone tells me that he would do the same if
    he ran for President and that is not good for our nation on any level
    and unacceptable as the Leader of our Nation.

    And then what will Christie do with those that keep sneaking in “AFTER” this new Amnesty, give them another Amnesty too? The ONLY way to solve this mess is to FIRST fully secure the border & mandatory E-verify B/4 ANY further discussions on another Amnesty! ! !

    So this means that any legal U.S. student in this country can get in-state tuition to attend college in New Jersey , because every child should be given the opportunity to reach their God-given potential. I am sure that Gov. Christie would not deny legal citizens the same God -given opportunity that he is offering illegal aliens .The New Jersey Universities receive state financial aid from the taxpayers don’t they?? These kids are in this predicament because of their law breaking parents, the law breaking employers that gave their illegal parents jobs, the school system that allowed the illegals to get a free education, the church’s that enabled the illegals and made them feel empowered to stay here illegally, so let’s make the tax paying citizens of New Jersey pay for the problem that all of these other people have caused!

      I think that could not be understood ant other way.

      I do not see any other possible interpretation, BB.

        I agree with you, will you be so king as to pay for my kids college tuition ?

        I tried to get the governments of Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama, Costa Rica to yap for my kids tuitions but the declined.
        Thank you in advance

    Another RINO bowing to the money of la Raza & LLA and ignoring our immigration laws. These people are criminals, as are their parents for crossing our borders and bringing their offspring here illegally. We are the only country in the world that tolerates turning a blind eye to people here and crossing our borders illegally. Then we allow them to publically protest, demanding benefits, rights, desecrating our flag, compliance to their native language and customs as our law enforcement protects them instead of rounding them up for deportation.
