It is because she won't be getting the free ride she's gotten since she arrived in this country.

Living in this country is a punishment for American taxpayers who are constantly paying for these criminals to attend school, eat.... and the list goes on.

The only people who are being punished are us.

I've paid taxes and I don't share the same view. With all of the gangbangers, Jessica Colotl isn't someone I'm worried about. For crying out loud she graduated from college. I'm less worried about her than gangs such as MS-13,many whom are here legally.

I didnít realize a college degree entitles one to flout the law with impunity. Does this apply to all college graduates, or just illegal aliens?

So let me guess.. You support the DREAM Act?

This " I am not worried about such and such person" attitude is what's keeping us divided.

So how do you feel about the families who come here ILLEGALLY, with 5 chuldren in tow and expect YOU and ME to pay for their education? They are harmless too, aren't they? They just want a better life.... Right?

Oh dear...

So in that case I'll just renounce my citzenship then come back into this country illegally so I can get everything I could want.
If that doesn't work, I will rob, and steal and still get away cause I will no longer be an American. So then I will pretend to speak bad english so people can cater to me and my ingronace and will basically have to bow to all of my requests.

All the more reason she could decide she isn't above the law. She can go home and apply to come back as a legal foreign student on a foreign student visa.

Why should others be expected to follow the laws and one group is given a pass? What makes her think she's superior to other foreign students who actually bothered to follow the laws and obtain their visas?

They pretend to be so proud of their native country, they love to display it's flag, even obnoxiously wave it in our faces, celebrate their own national holidays, speak it's language UNTIL someone suggests they return home to it.

Then suddenly their pride in their homeland vanishes. They want nothing to do with it, even smear it's image and insist there are no colleges or universities there, that everyone is starving to death back home or that it's too violent and dangerous and they're scared to go home.

That's why I think these Dream Act liars are so pathetic. I went to college some of the time in Mexico. It was a wonderful experience. I very much liked the Mexican professors and learned a lot. I got to see the archeological sites, and travel through Mexico. There is absolutely no reason the "dreamies" shouldn't experience their own country.

The open border crowd thinks that the entire planet should get a cut of the US pie by simply showing up. It's some kind of bizarro guilt factor I'm going to guess. The problem with it is that it punishes all Americans not just themselves.

For some reason, I haven't worried about it that much.

Sorry to hear that. When and if your country goes down what will you say then?
