DREAM Act would create millions of job takers

Congress Votes Today on Millions of 10-Year Work Permits for Illegal Aliens
When the House and Senate (presumably) vote this afternoon, I think it is important to frame the issue in terms of giving out millions of additional 10-year work permits.
You see, even people who don't qualify in the first place or who do qualify for the provisional amnesty but never meet the educational criteria later -- all of them can get a 10-year work permit from the start.
Here's the way it would work under the latest DREAM amnesty bill introduced in the Senate (and coming up for a vote today):
The 10-year work permits for people who do not qualify
[...] Estimates suggest that up to 2 million illegal aliens could legitimately qualify for the opening application, and perhaps a couple million more might be or look young enough to fraudulently apply.
Those millions would immediately be able to legally compete for any U.S. job.
