Ever notice that the sad forlorn look in their eyes is the same as those Feed the Kids commercials with the little waif playing in sewage on the street?

And ever notice that in every one of these sad stories, the illegal is at the top of his/her class - straight A student - and managed to forget all their mother-tongue somehow and so would feel out of place back home.

Meanwhile we're all told we need to learn Spanish to accomodate the illegals.

And the Dream Act wasn't just for children brought in as babies, it was as much for 15 years olds brought in recently who can't speak a word of English.

And why don't these articles mention that as soon as the Dream Act child is given his citizenship, they can start sponsoring their illegal parents, grandparents, and all the rest - the Dream Acters don't even pretend the children intend to live in the USA without their extended families staying here with them.

Is there a cutoff point? Who gets pardoned, who doesn't? You know?

You gotta love the artistic offering of the U.S. flag on her nails. There's always some attempt to create the feel of patriotism by the "Unwelcomed Illegal Immigrant Who Just Wants a Better Life" in these stories. Sometimes it is the sad-looking illegal immigrant draped by a U.S. flag as he/she seems to plead to the camera: "Let me stay."

Then you will see them two weeks later at the rally with the flag of their native country as they shout "Who is the real immigrant (in reference to European settlers)."
or "We Hate Gringo's" or "Whites Get out of OUR Country"!

I agree. And why don't we see the articles about those that have to PAY for attorneys to get their SSI straightened out when an illegal has stolen their card. Or the grieving families of those who lost loved ones due to uninsured DUI illegals that kill people in car crashes. Or those that lost value in their homes due to neighborhoods being blighted.

Are all media outlets now so biased that they won't show the other side of this?

Maybe they should interview some of the employees under her "management" (if they're legal that is) and ask how they like being supervised by an illegal?

I never had a heart for them. I know firsthand what widespread illegal immigration does to a place, and in Puerto Rico that translates into about 100 murders every month, with most murder victims ranging in age from 16-30 and male and a government that has a very poor educational system because a lot of money is diverted to pay for welfare and prisons for the illegal Dominicans and the poor Puerto Ricans they drag into the drug wars

LOL If I were one of her employees, I'd be calling ICE and trying to get that management position. How is an illegal immigrant going to be in a management position above a legal resident? Can you say, "Mo money, mo money, mo!?" Legal residents should be in these positions.

You got that right. I'd be that whistle blower for sure.
