On the 51st anniversary of the Greensboro sit-ins, an instrumental moment in the North Carolina civil rights movement, those supporting the DREAM legislation plan to hold vigils. Illegal immigrants and their supporters are trying to hitch their wagons to the star of the black civil rights movement, a shameful act.
What those brave young people did in Greensboro, so many years ago, should not be considered in the same league with people who have entered the United States illegally.
It is possible to enter the U.S. LEGALLY from Mexico, but it takes time and patience. KCC encourages those people to stand and fight their corrupt government, rather than flee here.
These “dreamers” want access to to North Carolina colleges and universities without being taxpaying citizens, despite their criminal status. They also oppose State House Bill 11, which would prevent illegal aliens from entering North Carolina community colleges and public universities.
Sponsored by state Rep. George Cleveland (R-Onslow), the bill would prevent admission to aliens not lawfully present in the United States.
Cleveland is serving his forth term in the state house and is widely respected as one of its most conservative members. He is not afraid to stand alone in the face of compromise and this time, the Dreamers are likely out-of-luck. Officially they are criminals, and as such, this nation owes them nothing.
KCC lived in Guadalajara, Jalisco (Mexico). She saw families living on rooftops in squalor and can understand their desire to flee those conditions. No one wants to live like that. But one must stand up and rally others for change in their own government, instead of coming here.
In other nations, many think the streets in the U.S. are literally paved with gold and that they deserve to be assisted by the U.S. government. While, that would be nice in a dream world, these people do not understand that we have our own deeply rooted budgetary problems. We must internally solve them before we can help anyone else.
Dream act will become a nightmare for illegals this session, in the North Carolina General Assembly.
