Wait til he has to get a job, or when he has a family with kids in the public school system or get a job and be transferred to a border state.

Then he may see that it might be a big deal.
It's only down in the deep South that people give a sh** about illegal immigration. Here in Chicago nobody minds, cares, or really thinks about the over one million Mexicans living in the metro area, and we're all doing just fine. I wonder why that is?

Yes and for each of these crimes there is a punishment when caught. The punishment for being caught in our country illegally is deportation. See how that works?

Since you have failed to answer I ask again:

How does Obama have the authority to enact his own version of the Dream Act? BTW: It was voted down by Congress.

Do you believe that we have the resources and infrastructure to accommodate anyone in the world who wants to immigrate to this country?

So where do we draw the line?

Don't be ridiculous! I don't live in the south and I am concerned about illegal immigration and so are many other Americans in all 50 states.

That's because you live in a city know for liberal lunacy where hope & change trump reality. Don't try to speak for half of the country based on your viewpoint.

Ever drove drunk? Lucky you didn't get caught? you still committed a crime.
An infraction is not a crime and is not punishable by imprisonment. People v. Sava (1987) 190 Cal.App.3d 935, 235 Cal.Rptr. 694

So now we are going to Hawaii? And yet there is a Pineapple Harvesting machine used in Hawaii. Look, only certain Tamatoes need to be picked by hand, many can and are picked by machine, the same with lettuce and many other crops.

Yes he should. Chile has civilized cities to live in like America. While in Chile he would assimilate (like he did here) and learn their language while buying time to learn how to come back to America the lawful right way in order to take the 'Oath of Allegiance' so he can become a true naturalized American citizen. He can look at it as a minor setback in life all while giving him a chance to curse the living sh*t out of his parents for not entering America the lawful way to begin with.

Funny, the West Coast gives a sh**. Northern California doesn't want Southern California's burdens.
