I empathize with people in similar predicaments, but this guy comes off real arrogant as if he's entitled.

Aren't they all? Just come here, move in then demand special consideration. Demand education for their children, welfare, drivers licenses. Oh and don't hold us accountable for the many laws we break along the way.
They are all arrogant.

"undocumented American"? Really? Seriously? That'd be like me going to Ireland and saying I'm an undocumented Irishman; tho I'm of Irish family, I'd be deported on the spot and Ireland would be right!

I had to laugh when someone called him an illegal alien and he said "no, I am an undocumented immigrant". I guess they feel they can just make up terms for themselves regardless of what immigration law says who/what they are.

The Washington Post hired Jose Antonio Vargas and knew that he was here illegally when they hired him. Peter Perl, who works for the Post, has gone on record admitting that he hired Vargas despite knowing that Vargas is an illegal. No surprise that the Post would do this. They've made it very, very clear that they support amnesty and in editorials on the subject, routinely refer to those of us who are against illegal immigration as being "nativists". These day, many people refer to the Post as "Pravda on the Potomac".

IMHO "nativist" ain't a bad word in 2014 if it means anyone who's against illegal aliens.

They are all arrogant.
The sad I thing is I have seen this over and over in Arizona. The general attitude is they just moving cross town and expect all the benefits of Citizens who pay taxes everyday.

This is a good example why we should let Illegals in. There is a process and it should be done.

Gentlemen like this has no intention of becoming American and take on American Culture.
Sad
