The student involved in this story dpes not have U.S. citizenship.

And, why are his parents (assumed to be illegals) being processed for deportation?

This is really insulting to someone who is a legel resident or citizen. He's from Mexico (he was brought here when he was 4), so they can't use the excuse that he was born here to illegal immigrant parents. This is so messed up. Basically, amongst ALL of the illegal immigrant problems and issues that the USA is having, they find out that someone is here illegally and they say, "Ah, it's OK, don't worry. You're good to stay here." What kind of message does that send? What is the POINT of DHS? For every Mexican undocumented that they allow to stay here because he or she is "soft-spoken" and "wants to research cancer" is another being added to the population of Hispanics that seeks to one day have majority in this country to discriminate and rule.

Every illegal immigrant should just say that they want to research cancer and be soft-spoken so they can stay.



LOL I'm sure they will give him unlimited approval and he will just keep appealing over and over. We sure are a great country, too bad legal residents and U.S.-born citizens aren't getting the love.
But we citizens sure get the "privilege" of paying for all that love!

"THE PEOPLE WHO AREN'T CONVINCED OF THEIR UNIQUENESS AND VALUE WILL PERRISH . DAVID LANE ." We are unique by being a salad.

"We no longer defend our culture, values or laws [ others are replacing them ] . We are no longer a nation , period ." On culture, not true. We are a salad nation. As long as a few core values are kept, our salad nation is A-OK. Our values are being kept. And "laws" have always been selectively enforced to allow for realism and so we dont get overwhelmed. However we could drop some marijuana laws to make it easier for our law enforcement and to bite the cartels in the bottom.
well,I dont care for this type of salad..you can come on my street & see why.My illegal neighbors who just LOVE this country sooooo much,are all out flying their mexican flags to celebrate fathers day.Not an american flag in sight except ours.And I'm not talking about tiny flags,but 1/2 the size of a pickup truck.I know some on here wont have a problem with this,but My husband gave his life fighting for this country..both my boys served,and what I'm seeing out front is like a slap in the face to us all.And I also KNOW for a fact they are illegal..I also have to pick up their garbage on a daily bases,do without being able to hear my tv because of their music,have their small children come daily to beg for things and fight the traffic on this small street because they have so many people living in a single family home.So imo,this salad stinks...time to throw it out.

I'm aware that the student in the story is an illegal. I was responding to Pappy's comments, which were about his general views of American demographics.

Perhaps they are deporting the parents since they feel the kid can fend for himself.

1. How do you know that they are illegal? Did you ask them?
2. Do people have to fly the American flag to celebrate any holiday (IMO American flags are obligatory on Independence day, but asides from that)? What if I wanted to fly the French flag or the Japanese flag, and my neighbors had similar tastes?

Although we don't know how many lies and laws this illegal kid told and broke getting into Havahd the deciding factor as always was that the kid was deemed to be a future democratic voter if amnestied, so the lies and broken laws can be overlooked....by the marxist amnesty democrats in control. And the hispandering value for the marxist amnesty democrats is just off the charts.

you have to be kidding right?!

here are some facts. educate yourself.

Fast Facts


The percentage of American college students who are minorities has been increasing. In 1976, 15 percent were minorities, compared with 32 percent in 2007. Much of the change from 1976 to 2007 can be attributed to rising numbers of Hispanic and Asian or Pacific Islander students. During that time period, the percentage of Asian or Pacific Islander students rose from 2 percent to 7 percent and the Hispanic percentage rose from 4 percent to 11 percent. The percentage of Black students was 9 percent at the beginning of the time period and it fluctuated during the early part of the period before rising to 13 percent in 2007. Nonresident aliens for whom race/ethnicity is not reported made up 3 percent of the total enrollment in 2007.

even if the numbers were higher, how is this a bad thing?
would you prefer minorities (or UN lookalikes) not become educated?

Good for him. He is exactly the kind of person I want to be fast tracked with citizenship...it's about damn time we became picky about who we bestow that upon, not just hand it to whoever is in the "front of the line". He may save one of your lives someday.
