What part of that constitutes "criminal behavior" on his part?
Are you celebrating this situation? Yes or no.

Were his parents illegal aliens also? I get the impression they were.

If so, the parents should be deported, and the child should be deported with them to keep from splitting up the family.

I don't care enough one way or the other.

I'm just wondering why some are accusing this guy of being a criminal for something his parents made him do when he was 11.

Do you have anything to add to this discussion besides absurd ultimatums? Yes or no.

You don't care about the precarious position we as American's find ourselves in due to the failures of this government to control our borders? You don't care that the exact moment these illegal immigrants and their offspring are made legal that an estimated 11 million job seekers will be competing with American citizen's for jobs at wages that a typical American can't survive on?

You don't care?

It's been 11 million for over a decade. Everywhere else has rising populations but the illegals are static.
I think the number is probably closer to 20 million.

The Reagan amnesty ended up double what they projected.

No, I don't care enough about whether that specific person was in the "seat of honor" at the SOTU, which was the intent of your persistent questioning, was it not?

I'm still waiting for you or anyone else to explain why that guy should be treated as a criminal for something his parents made him do when he was 11. And what was he supposed to do, anyway? Run away from home as soon as he realized he was illegal?

I trust the House Sergeant-At-Arms will take Mr. Aleman into custody and put the illegal on the next bus so he can be deported.
