OK so if these students are the brightest and are trying to further their education I assume they speak English very well as universities do not have bilingual programs. Seems to me like they are assimilating into US/American culture in spite of their parent's actions which brought them here. They most likely register with Individual Tax Identification Numbers specifically created for non-citizens/foreigners who donít have SS#s but file taxes in the US. Anyway, it is nice to see that people do in fact assimilate and try to better themselves.

illegals are a huge burden and should be set adrift in the pacific ocean.

Well my concern is for Americans and the education and jobs that they need and are entitiled too-not illegal aliens. Just because someone "assimilates" does not change the fact that they are here illegally.

no need to google. I read the article in the actual paper clownie pants. I guess MS-13 doesn't exist in whatever town you live in. see, I state facts based on experience, and you gum flap nothing. you should be obama's running mate.

What about the spaces in college that these illegals have taken from American citizens of all colors? There are not unlimited spaces in college enrollment. One illegal alien taking a space in college from an American citizen is one too many for me.
There is NO American Citizen with a high school diploma or even a GED that cannot attend college- even if they were "C-D" students- if they want. They might not get into a real selective college but you can attend college. And these immigrants are not going to highly selective colleges. I doubt that any American was rejected in favour of them.

Illegals do not have a moral right to complain if they do not recieve the benefits legals do. Thats the price for cheating. Yes it was the parents who cheated but the student is perpetuating the cheat by not attempting to legalize their status. If their attempt to gain legal status fails they are morally and legally obligated to leave.
If you are in my house without invitation is it morally wrong for me to throw you out? Is morally wrong for me not to first feed cloth and educate you first? No you are trespassing and should be arrested.
I am quite sure that, as soon as amnesty if offered, these students will gladly take advantage of it and legalize their status here. Until then there is no way for them to legalize here except to go home, wait for the 10 year penalty to pass and then apply for a student visa. We need amnesty badly and even some of the Republicans are seeing that now.
