WikiBombing, week 1: Illegal Immigration in the United States - DREAM Act Portal - Forums
I especially liked the "devolved clubfooted alipackers" part....such children, tsk tsk. Their parents must be so proud of the language they used immediately after that part (I cannot post it here as it would violate the TOS without a doubt). Such nice family values!

I find it funny, though, that they are frustrated at the futility in their attempts to keep the public misinformed on Wiki. What a miserable existence - were I in a similar situation, I think I might consider GOING HOME.

That's right. It was the 'No Felons Left Behind' clause.

This is precisely why we must scrutinize bills. Itís sad we canít trust our elected so-called representatives. Had America remained asleep, who knows what legislation those traitors would have passed? We need to clean house.

I certainly would leave. What do they think they're accomplishing by whining to each other and modifying Wiki info?

If their goal was getting a college education, there are schools in Mexico that I am sure could meet their needs and are very inexpensive. But it's not really about becoming educated, now is it? It's all about remaining in the US and bringing in additional family members.

Yes it is sad. I think it was on Lou Dobbs sometime this week where it was mentioned that many bills-both immigration related and non-immigration related are not fully read before senators and congressmen/women vote on them. That is pretty pathetic.

How many of us would be able to be as inept at work and remain employed?

I am particularly fond of amnesty as a solution to problems like the one you state above. If your parents bring you here - which is no choice of your own, mind you - and you grow up here you should not be put through the hell of deportation, regardless of your immigration status. When I was a senior in high school a Polish girl who was an honor student and had lived in the US since age 5 was threatened with deportation back to Poland, a country she had not seen in 12 years with a language that she did not speak. Myself and others got our local Congresswoman involved (Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R - Florida)) and she was eventually able to obtain a social security number and go to college in Florida. It is very disheartening to imagine that our government would deport people like this - who, for all practical purposes, identify as AMERICAN - who made no choice of their own to break any laws. These are precisely the people who should get to stay and should be given a simplified path to citizenship.

My guess would be zero.
