No, it isn't. Nor is it ours. So, why should we be expected to subsidize her college tuition? Haven't we already done enough by funding her K-12 education? Moreover, why should we reward her for her parents' decision to violate our laws? We have millions of innocent children of citizen criminals. But, we don't reward them. Why should the children of illegals differ?

That is the million dollar question. Oh because she might not receive benefits that legal immigrants don't receive. Yes illegals some how deserve more than those who obey our laws.
Her parents brought her here. This somehow makes her our problem?
Her parents brought her here. This means that we owe her special considerations?
Her parents are illegals, she is an illegal and somehow she feels that our elected reps and candidates owe her an explanation on how they will pass laws to make her life more conviient. So typical.

So disgusting, I'm sorry, but that's the only word I can think of to describe that. She asks why he won't "support her dream?" WTF chick? How about OUR politicians support the dreams of U.S. Citizens and LEGAL immigrants.

I also don't understand why she is confused about why Romney wants NOTHING to do with her, especially after revealing that she was an illegal immigrant. Just what did she think was going to happen? That he was going to have some heart-wrenching one-on-one with her (like Obama does) as he tells her that he will legalize her or that that he respects her "4.0" GPA that she told him about?

Yes most of us are sick by this, it is disheartning, discerning, and quite frankly dumbfounded. I feel that politicians on both sides, have failed us miserably on this issue.

Time to get tough, or guess what people, it will never happen. Imagine what this Country will look like when your small children have grown.

We need someone who truly cares about this immigration problem, not talk about it, dance around it, make excuses why it should be, but do something about it dang it.
What in the hell Country cares about American Citizens, the way we care about illegals in this one.

Time is now, Obama will not change his stance on immigration, and u all know it.

Send them all back!! If they are not here legally, they should not be allowed to be here.

If she's over 18, then living here illegally becomes more of her crime.

They just arrested some drug traffickers near me. A couple in their 50's and their two sons in their 20's who were working the family drug trafficking business.
Moderator cut: link removed, the article doesn't mention legal status and once again, Hispanic does not equal illegal
I think it's kind of sad for the sons, what could they know with criminal parents telling them that it's fine to break the laws but here they are facing criminal charges and time in prison.

Same thing for anyone with lawbreaking parents that haul the children into breaking the law. Should someone whose parents taught them to embezzle, or cheat on taxes be given a pass? What about fraud like that committed by Bernie Madoff? Should the adult children be allowed to go on committing the fraud because they got used to a lot of money?
