The illegal immigration forum called...they need you back. Too many posters are making sense.

It made sense to put an illegal in a seat of honor during a State of the Union address? Really?

Yes I am. If not by birth within the CONUS, then certainly by my time in the military.

I'm not saying all illegals ought to be treated better than legal citizens; however, I am stating that he's upset because just ONE of them gets to be the Guest of Honor. That's a very high honor for an citizen of this country, illegal or not.

Never heard of a green card? He could join the military and become one that way, if he so chose to do so.

Prove that the only way he can become a citizen is by amnesty of Congress. Cite your sources.

Here's the problem with that logic: he can admit to whatever he wants, but unless he brought to court and tried for his actions and convicted, then he is NOT a criminal by law.

Again I can say that I'm a hacker, but that doesn't make me one. Same case here - his parents committed the crime, not him. Why is he held responsible? At least he took responsibility for their actions.

He isn't, but the RWers don't care about little details like that.

How is someone who was brought over as a child by his parents a criminal? SMH.

No one is saying that they didn't or it isn't unlawful to do what they did.

Read what caribdoll said, "How is someone who was brought over as a child by his parents a criminal?"

The person in question had no idea of the ramifications of his parents actions when he was a child nor the power to prevent it.
