How nice of the invaders to "come out of the shadows"! May more of them come out so that a pro-American president and not an anti-American president may soon deport them!

The entire family is illegal, yet they own a local construction business. Illegal and unlicensed I'm sure, employing illegals. And no one is paying taxes!!!

There is a lot of self-hate and shame,” he says. “It’s something that has been ingrained into our mentalities. Even in our own communities, we wouldn’t open up and come out to each other as undocumented.”
Seems that the self-hate and shame mentality is doing a 180 and becoming pride in being an illegal. Oooops, I mean an "undocumented American".

Only in America. Viva Amrika!!!

The only reason our immigration system is unworkable is because both parties want it so. The Dems like to pander to the hispanic vote. The Reps like cheap and docile labor. The Dems get the moral satisfaction of yelling racism and the Reps get to appear progressive. Meanwhile the poor middle class gets hit. We get zonked with higher taxes to pay the costs low skilled illegals impose, more crowded public schools and decreased opportunity in the workforce as increasingly arrogant employers demand we learn Spanish to accommodate the needs of stupid and lazy illegals.

The kids need to go back to their own country and stop whining that we're not going to reward their criminal parents. If your parents brought you here, you parents can damned well bring you home. I am sick and tired of spoiled brats who argue otherwise. If the situation were reversed I can guarantee that most of those complaining would be the first to screech that the gringos should get out.

These are not children. These are grownups who are not only fully aware of the multiple crimes that they and their parents commit as they sit here year after year in defiance of our laws, but they have grown up to become defensive and willing participants in the tradition of their parents.

Go to the DreamAct Portal and read some of the scams they come up with and the crimes they openly admit to commiting in order to stay here. Not an ounce of remorse for commiting crimes daily in order to remain in this country. Even stranger than ever is they feel that they and their parents are victims of America's laws.

Just what America needs, a 2nd generation, 3rd world crime wave given amnesty and being sworn in as American citizens.

They are so proud to wave their own country's flag, and shout Viva Mexico until it actually comes time to do something for their country, then all they can think to do is get and stay illegally in this country while they despise it.

Well said. There is nothing more to be said on this subject. everyone knows the illegals shouldn't be here. everyone knows our government isn't going to do anything constructive about it. All the arguements, whining and anger isn't going to get us anywhere. Which is what they (illegals) are counting on.
