Is there a better example of the American dream than Arnold Schwarzenegger?. The former California governor and Austrian immigrant urged passage of federal immigration reform, saying on Tuesday that he is not any different from the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants. “These are all very hard-working people,” Schwarzenegger said. “They have a dream. They want to make their dreams a reality.” Meanwhile back in Washington, the immigration bill’s advocates are lobbying Republicans to cross the aisle and support it, since it will need some GOP votes to pass the House.
