Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) speculated Tuesday that one of the illegal immigrants covered by the proposed DREAM Act might one day become president.
When I look around this room, I see America’s future, our doctors, our teachers, our nurses, our engineers, our scientists, our soldiers, our congressmen, our senators, and maybe our president.
There’s just one trouble for the Senator. Article II, Section 1:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Because I’d hate to think you were pandering to them, filling them with a false hope, all for the chance to make a dramatic statement for the cameras.

That core was principled, fiscal conservatism and a desire | Read More »
