That's actually really good that you got a job in Mexico and can lead a regular life, I think it's a good news.

But as for me, oh HELL no, I ain't going to Korea or the Korean army lol. I am 21 and I am willing to wait at least 5 more years, I don't even plan on waiting per say. If it doesn't pass next year I am gonna take the matter into my own hands and really try my best to find my one to marry. I guess it depends on your degree but I would only have a nursing degree (AS degree) and even if I got a bachelor in another major I would end up as an English teacher for the rest of my life in Korea.

Why is he "scum"? He just sounds desperate to stay in the only country he knows.

Imagine you being born in England, but you dont remember anything about it because you were brought here at the age of 2, then you get set back to England at whatever age you are without ever having been there.

These people deserve a right to become LEGAL citizens. They've stayed out of trouble, and are becoming educated. Thats the kind of immigrants we need.
It’s unfortunate that children often suffer due to the decisions made by their parents. However, there are no special provisions for the children of U.S. citizens who are incarcerated or have engaged in criminal activities. Their children also suffer. Blame the parents, not the laws or citizens of this country.

The DREAM Act would simply be another manipulated, abused and un-enforced law to enable millions of illegal aliens to gain citizenship. It would also be a HUGE magnet for more illegal immigration. I simply cannot condone “rewarding” illegal aliens for ignoring our laws. Furthermore, due to their propensity to use numerous aliases, as well as document fraud, there simply would be no reliable means of verification.

People relocate to foreign countries on a regular basis, and adapt quite well. There is no reason Dreamies can’t return to their countries of origin.

How do they "deserve" the "right" to be granted citizenship?

Excellent analogy. The answer to your question is they don't deserve anything courtesy of the US taxpayer. Millions of citizens graduate high school every single day yet when they prepare to go to college out of state, they have to pay out of state rates. The circumstances of Dreamies are NOT special other than they have managed to lie, cheat and steal in order to obtain an American college degree by any means necessary. They need to take their ill gotten gains and use them to help raise their 3rd world countries out of poverty. But it's easier for them to remain here in all of their arrogance and delusional racial superiority and demand we foot their bills.

Additionally, they claim they can't go back because they aren't familiar with their homelands. Neither they nor their parents were familiar with America but they sure did learn how to skirt every law possible to remain here. Proof that it is not impossible for them to go home and adjust to the country they so proudly support but are too lazy to make liveable. It's much easier to stay here and demand everything after all we've already done all the heavy lifting.

It's time for them to blame and hold their criminal parents accountable for their actions but of course they won't do that because they have been raised to believe that nothing is ever their fault.

No: you be realistic-------------things change and even the 'beloved' Aztecs prior to the Hispanic takeover of what is today's Mexico subjugated weaker Indian tribes.
