The ad appears to be vaguely referencing the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act which Reid attached to the defense reauthorization bill last month as an amendment. The DREAM Act wouldn’t give undocumented students special tuition rates, but it would eliminate a federal provision that penalizes states that provide in-state tuition without regard to immigration status. Angle’s ad doesn’t mention that it would also allow certain undocumented immigrant youth who were brought to the U.S. by their parents at a young age to eventually obtain legal permanent status by enlisting in the military or attending a university. A June 2010 national poll of 1,008 adults revealed that 70 percent of voters support the DREAM Act, across party lines.
Reid’s campaign released a fact check and a statement on the ad saying, “despicably, Angle’s new ad ramps up her use of incendiary imagery to appeal to Nevadans’ worst fears, while using the exact same thoroughly-debunked lies from her first two ads – lies that independent analysts and fact-checkers have called out as false.”
At this point Republicans are openly playing the race card in a bad economy. They're not even trying to hide it anymore. But Latino voters plan to stay home because Democrats have been unable to get immigration legislation passed? Seems to me that's putting Republicans like Sharron Angle in charge. Do you think they'll pass fair immigration reform, or will they pass a national version of Arizona's law?
Think about it. This is what Republicans think about minorities in general: all they do is take jobs away from good white Americans.
Something to consider next time you hear that the only conceivable reason minorities would support Obama (or any politician of color) is because of their racist hatred of white people
