Obama promises to push DREAM Act.

White House aims to
help foreign college
students, soldiers
become citizens
dent Barack Obama is promising
to work with senators to help pass
legislation allowing thousands of
young people who attend college
or join the military to become
legal U.S. residents, according
to Hispanic lawmakers who met
yesterday with the president.
"The president made it abso-
lutely clear to us that he would
leave no stone unturned" in push-
ing for Senate approval of what's
known as the DREAM Act, Rep.
Luis Gutierrez, D-Calif., said.
Senate Majority Leader Harry
Reid, D-Nev., has said he wants
to add the immigration measure
to a defense policy bill the Senate
plans to take up before lawmak-
ers leave town to campaign for
the November elections.
Republicans oppose that move
and have accused Reid of playing
politics with the bills.
Some military leaders support

Reid because of the recruitment
potential for the armed ser-
vices. Under the bill, the young
people must have come to the
U.S. before age 16 and have lived
here for five years. At least two
years of military service would
be required.
"The president noted that it is
time to stop punishing innocent
young people for the actions of
their parents, especially when
those youth grew up in America
and want to serve this country in
the military or pursue a higher
education," the White House
said in a statement after Obama's
meeting at the White House with
Gutierrez, Rep. Nydia Velazquez,
D-N.Y., and Sen. Robert Menen-
dez, D-N.J.
When Obama was a senator
he supported the DREAM Act,
which has been kicking around
Congress for nearly a decade.
The meeting followed Obama's
speech Wednesday night at a
Hispanic awards dinner, where
he urged Latinos not to punish
Democrats at the polls because
he's been unable to keep his
promise to sign a comprehensive
immigration bill into law.
Advocates, meanwhile, are

launching a major lobbying effort
for DREAM, enlisting educators,
clergy and others to press sena-
tors to back the measure.
Velazquez said passing the bill
"is the right thing to do. It's a
matter of fairness for thousands
and thousands of young kids"
who entered the country illegally
with their families: She and oth-
ers say they should not be pun-
Republicans contend that the
bill rewards law breakers.
"The DREAM Act is yet anoth-
er attempt by Washington Demo-
crats to grant amnesty to illegal
immigrants who have broken our
laws," said Rep. Phil Gingrey,
Carlos Saavedra, national
coordinator of United We Dream,
a coalition of student immigrant
advocacy groups, said voters
who care about the issue will be
watching how senators vote on
the bill.
"Folks are literally dropping
their lives right now to work on
this," Saavedra said Thursday.
"This is one of our last chances
to get some justice to the immi-
grant community and immigrant
youth. It's huge."

President Barack Obama speaks yesterday at a fundraiser with Richard Blumenthal, a Dem. candidate Conn. attorney general.

Distraught gunman kills himself,
mother at John Hopkins Hospital

Senate passes $30
billion tax credit for
small businesses

Son reacts to news of
mother's medical
condition, also
shoots surgeon
BALTIMORE (AP) - A man who
became distraught as he was being
briefed on his mother's condition
by a surgeon at Johns Hopkins
Hospital pulled a gun and shot the
doctor yesterday, then killed his
mother and himself in her room at
the world-famous medical center,
police said.
The doctor, who was wounded
in the abdomen, was expected to
The gunman, 50-year-old Paul
Warren Pardus, had been listen-

ing to the surgeon around mid-
day when he "became emotionally
distraught and reacted ... and was
overwhelmed by the news of his
mother's condition," Police Com-
missioner Frederick H. Bealefeld
III said.
Pardus pulled a semiautomatic
gun from his waistband and shot
the doctor once, the commissioner
said. The doctor, identified by col-
leagues as orthopedic surgeon
David B. Cohen, collapsed out-
side the eighth-floor room where
Pardus' mother, 84-year-old Jean
Davis, was being treated.
Pardus then holed up in the
room in a more than two-hour
standoff that led authorities to lock
down a small section of the Nelson
Building while allowing the rest
of the sprawling red-brick medi-

cal complex - a cluster of hospital,
research and education buildings -
to remain open.
When officers made their way to
the room, they found Pardus and
his mother shot to death, he on the
floor, she in her bed.
Bealefeld said he did not know
what the woman was being treated
for at Hopkins, a world-class insti-
tution widely known for its cancer
research and treatment.
It is part of Johns Hopkins
University, which has one of the
foremost medical schools in the
Harry Koffenberger, vice presi-
dent of security, said the hospital
uses handheld metal detectors to
screen patients and visitors known
to be high-risk. However, with
80 entrances and 80,000 visitors

a week, it is not realistic to place
metal detectors and guards every-
"Not in a health-care setting,"
Koffenberger said.
The hospital will review proce-
dures and look again at the use of
metal detectors, he said.
Michelle Burrell, who works in
a coffee shop in the hospital lobby,
said she was told by employees who
were on the floor where the doc-
tor was shot that the gunman was
angry with the doctor's treatment
of his mother.
"It's crazy," she said.
Pardus was from Arlington, Va.,
and had a handgun permit in that
state, police said. The gunman
was initially identified as Warren
Davis, but police later said that was
an alias.

Bill allocates $30
billion for small
business lending
Senate has passed a bill to create
a $30 billion government fund
to help open lending for credit-
starved small businesses, cut
their taxes and boost federal loan
programs for them.
The 61-38 tally rewards Presi-
dent Barack Obama and his
Democratic allies of Capitol Hill
with a long-sought victory and
sets the stage for a final vote
in the House, which is likely to
approve it for Obama's signa-

The new fund would help'
community banks increase lend-
ing to small businesses hurt by
the recession and the 2008 Wall
Street crisis. The bill would also
provide about $12 billion in tax
breaks over a decade to both
large and small businesses and
also boost the Small Business
Administration's lending pro-'
"At a time when small busi-
ness owners are still struggling
to make payroll and they're
still holding off hiring, we put
together a plan that would give
them some tax relief and make it
easier for them to take out loans,"
Obama said Wednesday.
