The four teenagers who built it are undocumented Mexican immigrants.

How 4 Mexican Immigrant Kids and Their Cheap Robot Beat MIT

Sorry for the few words: the article wouldn't let me copy and paste it.

Illegal aliens: they STILL need to go BACK to Mexico. These stories are stupid because for every illegal whose smart: 100 of them are just useless at best. Too; Mexico NEEDS their kind to help build it up.

That's what the lamestream media does. They find these very rare illegals and try to make it seem like they all are like these kids. However, most of us know that this isn't the case.

Besides, if these kids are so smart, what was there to stop them from achieving the same thing back in Mexico?

Really, I coached youth sports down the street from Carl Hayden for a decade. Most all the kids lived in regular homes with electricity, and I never heard of any them coming across the border "through tunnels or hidden in the backseats of cars"

"four teenagers who built it are all undocumented Mexican immigrants who came to this country through tunnels or hidden in the backseats of cars. They live in sheds and rooms without electricity"

For every story about illegal aliens building robots you will hear 1000 stories like this one...

"Arizona Border Patrol agent injured during assault"

TUCSON - A Border Patrol agent assigned to the Ajo Border Patrol Station is recovering after being attacked Saturday. Customs and Border Protection officials say the assault happened near Gu Vo, Arizona when the agent was responding to a call in the area. The agent suffered lacerations to the face and an orbital bone fracture. Officials say the agent received 22 stitches. The agent was flown to a Tucson hospital and later released.

Border Patrol has identified Carlos Manuel Pena-Nieblas, a citizen of Mexico, as a person of interest. A search is underway and the FBI is investigating.

Mexico clearly needs these kids more than we do. Let's send them back so Mexico can have awesome robots.

Well said! Mexico could use the hardwork and ingenuity of these students. Say, does Guatemala, El Salvador, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic have any similar students we can send back?

Please don't forget Ireland, China, Russia, Nigeria and so on; it ain't just "Hispanics" who are illegal aliens.

Illegals under 18 should be allowed to become citizens but not be able to sponsor any family members.

Wow, nice story. The follow up report The True Story of the Kids Who Beat MIT's Best Robots, Coming Soon to Theaters | WIRED demonstrates how these four may have faced less obstacles attending college in Mexico. I wonder if they even applied to engineering schools in their home countries?

I disagree. Either they violated our laws by coming here illegally or their parents brought them here illegally. Neither warrants our citizenship.
