Dreamers are just as American as you and me. They grew up here, saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Congress must ensure that Dreamers have the certainty about the future that they deserve.

As John Adams said, America has a government of persons and not of laws!
By the way, here is the Oath of Office Senator Durbin took:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
