But no, they'd rather be used for as a wittness in some SOB story.
Actually only those that entered legally are eligible to adjust status. For those who EWI (entered without inspection) ie, border hopped, got smuggled in there IS no adjustment of status available. Even for those that ARE eligible to adjust status (the overstayers etc) most cannot be applied for while residing illegally in this country. They have to return to their country of origin to apply, and by leaving they incur a 3 yr or 10 yr ban on re-entry.

Hence the other thread I started.. One possible immigration "reform" that might work........

Yes, and just to note I wasn't blaming M. Obama for what the child's mother likely told the little girl. The photo op seems a bit exploitive, but for all I know teachers may be speaking of this subject to lower grades.
We are supposed to get internet ID's soon by administration for our safety and security, so I should be careful.
