Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin has been ducking requests for comment ever since one of his young Dream Act candidates was exposed for her hate-filled Facebook posts and nasty, vitriolic letters to her own parents, according to The Blaze Network.
On Jan. 31, 2012, Durbin championed the Dream Act with a speech on the Senate floor, pointing to Alaa Mukahhal as a great example of the type of person who would benefit from immigration reform. Beside the senator was a picture of Mukahhal in a head dressing and an American flag in the background. Durbin described her as a young architect of Palestinian descent whose dream was to design affordable housing for — who else? — low-income communities.
The Dream Act offers a six-year path to citizenship for undocumented students who complete a college degree or two years of military service. Yet after hearing Glenn Beck read Mukahhal’s written words, it’s easy to conclude that the last place she belongs is on U.S. soil — and surely not in our military, with a gun in her hand.
A few days after Durbin’s Senate speech, Mukahhal took to Facebook to openly mock the fact that she posed in front of an American flag: “Did ya’ll notice the flag in the background of the pic? That was no coincidence #messaging #lol”
But it gets much better than that.
According to Beck, on Sept. 12, 2012, Mukahhal posted on Facebook: “F**k Israel. F**k Zionists and all the Zionist apologists. F**k them all.”
Then the following November, she warned of “white people in suits” in this post on her participation in an Illinois protest to get driver’s licenses for illegals:
Ain’t no power like the power of the people ‘cuz the power of the people don’t stop! Say what? Driver’s Licenses for all, that’s what!. 1000 brown people descending upon Springfield, white people in suits, beware!
Mukahhal’s letters to her parents were cursing, heated rants against Israel and white people, among others. She failed, however, to mention anything about architecture.
Based upon what’s already been uncovered, Mukahhal’s American dream may very well be a true nightmare for Americans. And speaking of white people in suits, thank you to Durbin for putting her at the top of the “Dream” list. Which begs the question: Who’s at the bottom?
