Under Article 4, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, the federal government must abate “foreign invasion.” The Dream Act and other amnesty schemes aiding and abetting illegal aliens violates this law and federal mandate by condoning and rewarding “foreign invasion” and not abating it. Therefore, such proposals or new laws are highly illegal even if created by Congress. However, there is a much more serious legal issue at play with the Dream Act.

In the event the Dream Act is passed, it will signal to all Americans that their federal government has gone rogue and no longer respects or adheres to the U.S. Constitution. Hence passage of the Dream Act is a very serious offense against the American people.

This would be a violation of dozens of federal laws, not the least of which is “high treason.”
