How does this guy get re-elected?
Check it out:
Congressman Charles B. Rangel issued the following statement after the New York Senate failed to pass the Dream Act, a bill providing state financial aid for college for the children of illegal immigrants:
“I am disappointed that the New York State Senate, once again, failed to pass the DREAM Act. The fate of many of my constituents in Manhattan and the Bronx depends on the enactment of this bill. Our current immigration system denies some of the best and brightest students in the nation the chance to help America maintain its greatness. Many of them may have arrived here illegally by their parents, but they salute the Stars and Stripes and America is the only home they know. They deserve the same opportunity to contribute to our nation as Americans.
