Funny, they have no problem leaving their children to seek a better life in the US. But, we are mean-spirited and “separating families” when they’re deported.

The undocumented worker cleans offices to pay her bills and hasn't seen her 8-year-old son since she left El Salvador three years ago. Yet Lopez is happy with her job, hopeful about the future and confident her son will one day graduate from college in the United States.

"One hopes for the best and sometimes you don't get it, but I'm good where I am," Lopez, who lives in Columbia, Md., tells a reporter in Spanish.

I'm sure most "immigrants" (I'm one too - a LEGAL immigrant) ARE hopeful about life in the USA - illegals on the other hand should be feeling nothing but FEAR - fear they WILL be caught and deported - but no..........THIS undocumented worker (cough cough) is looking to bring in MORE illegals.....just HOW does she plan on doing this?

Quote:
And she's working much shorter days now, as she prepares to bring her son and father to the U.S.
The SAME son she abandoned in their homeland when he was five, but now she's planning to BRING him here and educate him (including a tertiary education apparently) on the US taxpayer's dime.

These illegals advocates need to be charged with aiding and abetting illegals to flout the laws of this country. Just more "mediaspeak" headlining this article as being about Hispanic immigrants when not ONE of those people cited in the article was here LEGALLY!!

Here's another one planning on "using the system" to make sure his anchor babies reap the benefits -

Quote:
Alfredo Coronel, a 22-year-old college student who emigrated illegally from Mexico when he was 8, seems to give voice to both the optimism and frustration.
Coronel, an architecture student at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, Calif., predicts it will be easier for his children to attend college than it's been for him.
"I'm getting all this experience about the system, so they will benefit," he says.
But as an undocumented immigrant, Coronel can't get federal aid or loans, and he'll have trouble finding a good job after school without proper work papers.
still managing to get a tertiary education on the US taxpayer - even though he's apparently STILL illegal.

Endless lies - how do they (The Parents) communicate with the children that "don't speak English, or don't speak Spanish?" Sign language? Is another sibling the interpreter? What a complete crock.


They Teach their kids enough Spanish to be able to speak to them. It's just rediculous. Either that or the Parents learn English to the point they can communicate.

All lies!


The biggest Anchor Baby problem is spelled out right there!!

[LEFT]Segura said that may be a matter of necessity: Immigrants, especially those who can't speak English, are "more likely to pay a price" if they can't move freely through society. Those who are born here, on the other hand, tend to place more importance on maintaining their distinct cultures.

Don’t you just love how they conflate legal and illegal as though there is no distinction? If they are “hopeful” they are also stupid. Only an idiot doesn’t realize when they're not welcome.

"Undocumented worker"

I am so sick of this "politically correct" bullcrap. Oh, I forgot, if we tell it like it is, that makes us racist bigots.

That's because in their tiny pea brains there IS no difference - it's just a matter of that pesky piece of paper (read documentation) they're missing that gives them the LEGAL right to be here.

They don’t speak English, and their U.S.-born children don’t speak Spanish. Yet, they somehow communicate. Right.

Yes, they certainly know how to play the system, and they share their knowledge with their family and friends back home to prepare them for sucking at the U.S. teat.

Ah yes, the holy grail of social services via a slip of paper.
