just like ALL illegals seem to think we owe them something

"I always ask myself is it worth it," Felix said of her pursuit of a master's degree in an interview several months before her death. "You can graduate from college with your degree, but your degree isn't worth anything because you don't have a nine-digit [Social Security] number that shows you can work."

the death of the girls is really tragic, my heart goes out to the families and it sounds like they were two who had their heads on straight, but the fact remains, as you say, not paying into the system and taking indicates a lack of ethics.

Well, Boo Hoo!

Their deaths could have been prevented. They were here illegally and driving without a license. Which was left out of their sob story.

Where does it say they were the ones driving the car? Regardless of your political views, it's nice to see you taking a death so casually.

Btw, this is such an idiotic post, i didn't realize that U.S citizens and green card holders don't get into car accidents.

How is this even remotely relevant to the DREAM Act debate? Theyíre exploiting these deaths to try to garner support for illegal aliens, and itís absolutely appalling. They arenít dead because the DREAM Act hasnít passed. Theyíre dead because they were involved in an auto accident.

Why donít they feature the heart-wrenching stories of the thousands of U.S. citizens whose lives were cut short due to the failure of our pandering government to enforce our immigration laws? Iím sure at least some of the children and young adult victims of illegal aliens would have also had promising futures. Oh, thatís right; it would be racist to mention those deaths.

Driving or not, if they hadn't been here, they wouldn't have been in that vehicle.

Anyone else notice that even though there were TWO girls in the story - the majority of the article was relating to the one with Mexican heritage? Who's racist now then?

Why is it that we NEVER hear both sides of the story?
