Lee Fisher Supports DREAM Act & Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants

Running in the U.S. Senate race for OH, Lt. Governor Lee Fisher recently attended an exclusive "meet & greet" with proponents of amnesty for illegal immigrants. At this little breakfast bash Fisher fielded questions from the audience and boasted how he fully supports the efforts of the groups in attendance.

The OH representative of Reform Immigration for America, Ruben Castilla Herrera, posted the following at Ohio Action Circle -- (emphasis added)
Columbus, Ohio – This morning I was at a breakfast meet and greet with Ohio Senate candidate Lee Fisher and twelve Columbus area Latino leaders. Fisher spoke briefly, then is was time for the guests to ask questions. I was the first to ask him a question and of course it was about the Dream Act and immigration reform.....

Do you support the Dream Act and immigration reform? To this, he gave a solid YES. He is on record indicating he supports a pathway to citizenship but to my knowledge has never been asked specifically about the Dream Act. This was good....!

The questions continued; Would you support the Dream Act as a stand along bill? He responding by saying that he prefers Dream to be a part of comprehensive immigration reform but if elected "I will support it either way."

I then asked; Can you go on record at a public event stating this support? He quickly commented, "I feel like I'm on Meet the Press", then gave another "yes" to this request. I told him that I will be following up very soon on this!

Oh...one more question Lt. Governor...

When you are elected our new Ohio Senator, will you take Comprehensive Immigration Reform as priority in the first few months of 2011? There was some hesitation but again he gave a YES!
First, in correcting Herrera.... Fisher is a candidate for U.S. Senate and NOT the OH Senate. It is pretty sad when the person arguing for amnesty of illegal immigrants doesn't even know the difference between a U.S. Senator and State Senator.

But more importantly, if Lee Fisher is a man of his word and if he is elected U.S. Senator, Fisher has pledged to not only support the DREAM Act, but supports a comprehensive immigration reform -- which are political code words for granting amnesty to illegal immigrants.

What is the DREAM Act & what does it do?
The DREAM Act (S. 774) is a nightmare. It is a mas­sive amnesty that extends to the millions of illegal aliens who entered the United States before the age of 16. The illegal alien who applies for this amnesty is immediately rewarded with "conditional" lawful per­manent resident (green card) status, which can be converted to a non-conditional green card in short order. The alien can then use his newly acquired status to seek green cards for the parents who brought him in illegally in the first place. In this way, it is also a back­door amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens who brought their children with them to the United States.

What is less well known about the DREAM Act is that it also allows illegal aliens to receive in-state tuition rates at public universities, discriminating against U.S. citizens from out of state and law-abiding foreign students. It repeals a 1996 federal law that pro­hibits any state from offering in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens unless the state also offers in-state tuition rates to all U.S. citizens. More....
Senator Harry Reid has stated he will strongly consider pushing the DREAM Act forward as a stand-alone bill before the end of the 2010! There are now 39 DREAM Act cosponsors in the Senate and 128 in the House of Representatives -- if elected to the U.S. Senate -- Lee Fisher would make it 40 supporters of the DREAM Act.

More disturbing than Herrera not knowing the difference between a U.S. Senator and a State Senator is that, Lee Fisher, from his statements, is unaware that the United States ALREADY has a "path to citizenship" for immigrants wanting to become U.S. citizens.

Can we afford electing a Senator that supports giving preferential treatment, financial support & special perks to non-citizens over U.S. citizens when it comes to higher education or anything else for that matter? Can we afford electing a person Senator that supports back door amnesty for illegal immigrants?

At the point and time we are at in our country, where our U.S. Constitution is slowly being turned into confetti -- it is important, now more than ever, that anyone elected to the Senate be knowledgeable & respectful of the document they will swear an oath to uphold. It appears from his statements, Lee Fisher does neither!


  1. I fully support CIR above all else, but we have ran out of time. The DREAM Act is the only plausible legislation that will alleviate our situation. It will create hope. It will be the first to the ultimate goal of equal rights. It will allow for the dreams of millions of parents to come true, their children having a chance at a life, that they only dream of.

  3. Rorscach -- who is the 'we' in "...we have run out of time," and who is the 'our' in "...alleviate our situation?" Surely you are not speaking about legal immigrants and U.S. citizens.

    We, legal citizens of the U.S. have not yet run out of time -- but we cannot tolerate more dillying and partisan pokeying by the politicians here -- or it will be too late.

    U.S. citizens have God-given rights protected by our Constitution and one of the reasons we must stop the flow of illegal immigrants is so OUR children can have a life many dream about.

    Let me ask you something -- the United States was founded by people standing up against a freedom-sapping government. Wouldn't you have your life people only dream of if you guys did this in Mexico? Pretty novel idea - huh?

  4. King what makes you think "Rorschach" was born in mexico?

    Its easy to judge people when you your not in their situation. Hating on children who grew up as americans. Good for you. In this country we don't punish children for the sins of their parents. Asking someone to move to a country they do not remember? Not sure why so much hate exists against these children.

    Cannot reward lawbrakers? Well the children that grew up here are not lawbrakers. They never gave their consent to come here as they were to young to comprehend.

    Those that go to college in this country pay the most in taxes. Those that join the miltary protect our way of life.

    What is so bad about the dream act?

    Where is the compassion?

    Do you hate mexicans? Hispanics?

    Do you hate children that grew up here as Americans?

    Do you believe if I put two 21 year olds in front of you that grew up here as Americans. One that is A U.S. citizen the other "undocumented" or you probably prefer "illegal". Do you believe you could tell the difference if you spoke to them?

    You don't care right? Your just full of hate. USA.. USA.. Ever heard of compassion. Hope you never need any...

    I believe you are racist king...

    Racism, in all forms, is reserved for stupid, uneducated, close-minded and sheltered people who understand very little about the world around them or even the human condition in general. Tolerance, equality and liberty is what is considered American, and is in fact, why the country was founded to begin with
