I somehow doubt it. Not with all the Mexican flags they find to wave. And when they go to college, they're the ones who sign up for Aztlan studies and join the La Raza groups.

They feel enough of a connection to their country that studying there shouldn't be some real hardship. And if it isn't such a hardship for all the many non-Mexican students that studied there, how can it be such a hardship for students actually citizens of that country.

I know because I did study in Mexico. It was a great experience, not a hardship at all.

Like I said before..who's to say that those children with a stronger connection to the US as their home won't go back there and stand up to the corrupt government and demand better. That they won't take on the drug cartels and clean house. Those children have lived American Heritage and American Culture but more then anything American Pride... Let them take those things they learned here back to their own country...knowing they can never return because of the sins of their fathers ..and do this enmass. These children have not been indoctrinated with the Mexican cultural apathy. We would literally be sending back an army of change....and they would be mad enough and strong enough and educated enough to accomplish what no Mexican President or government has been able to accomplish in the last 100 years. They will change their country..not over night..but change would come...if for no other reason so that their grandchildren will get the same high quality education...in their own country or in the US..legally.
And on that point I would say send them back first..because we know where they are and because they are needed in their own country the most.

Since they don't get it, let's change the name of the game. Sign the petition located at the blog address below to strengthen the Act with new stiffer requirements, audits, enforcement and penalties.
