Don't even attempt to get smart w/ me, AMC. I worked over 40 hours a week and attended college FULL TIME and it sure as hell wasn't easy. I also worked my way through grad school. Unless you have done the same, don't even go there. Some of us have paid our dues, bigtime.

No disrespect intended, One, but here in NC, we recently had a case that involved an illegal who had been deported 8 times. Yep, 8 times. I wish I could find the link. He had been deported from other states as well as NC, including Virginia and maybe - Georgia. Truly - 8 times. So he managed to get back in right away. He had used different identities and committed crimes every time, been deported, and still sneaked right back in.

This is not the case I am referring to in my earlier post, but take this guy, for example - deported twice, and still back in NC the third time - managed to BUY A HOME and hold down a $44 K job . . . and was not only a serial rapist, but a burglar. Great story.

Illegal Immigration ALIPAC - NC accused serial rapist Deported twice, had license, mortgage, 44k job!

But yeah, your experience is unique.

there is really no wining with some of you.

this is a succes story in many ways. its good to know that the govt has some sense. great story!
besides folks, the parents and grandparents are gone. its ok. we dont have to support them into old age now. and these guys will be hard working citizens of the US. their ties to COL are very limited. why would they go back? im sure they will stay and be wonderful assets to this great country. its a success.

o ya, GO HOYAS!!!
I don’t care if the parents and grandparents have been deported. Allowing this illegal alien to remain in this country, and receive a college scholarship, is still rewarding his parents for violating our laws.

There are millions of children in this country with incarcerated parents. If you do the crime, you do the time. No one is suggesting children should join their parents in jail, and it is ludicrous to compare having children join their parents in their country of origin with children being punished along with their imprisoned parents. Apples and oranges.

If we’re going to ‘reward’ children of illegal aliens with a college education, we should provide money market accounts for children of bank robbers. Both are equally absurd.

Excellent analogy. Sorry I can't rep you.

UPDATE - I said the dude was deported 8 times. He was deported 17 times. Here is the story. So yeah, it is very easy to get deported and continue coming back.

This low life killed a student at UNC-Charlotte who was minding his own business. The illegal was drunk.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A Mexican native charged in a drunken-driving wreck that killed a student at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte had been arrested previously on impaired driving charges and has been returned to Mexico 17 times, according to authorities.
Jorge Humberto Hernandez-Soto was arrested on charges of impaired driving in Colorado and Tennessee; he has been deported from Tucson twice and once from El Paso, Texas, and was voluntarily sent back to Mexico another 14 times after being caught near the border, immigration officials said.

This is the norm. Our revolving door is a joke to illegals. They don't worry about being deported, because they know they can return as easily as their initial entry.

As for the parents and grandparents of the illegal alien student -- they are probably already here, sitting around laughing at our stupidity.

We have a wacko legislator here in NC who is trying to assure that kids of illegals get a college education, despite legislation banning anyone (who cannot prove their citizenship) from enrolling in state institutions.

Illegal immigrants face threat of no college - USATODAY.com

"Opponents say students shouldn't be penalized for their parents' actions. Helping them is "the right thing to do even if it's unpopular," says North Carolina state Rep. Pricey Harrison, a Democrat who introduced a bill that would prevent state institutions from asking about students' immigration status."
