Let me toss this in:

Mach50 actually admitted some months ago that his mother was an illegal..........his father was American so, strictly speaking, Mach50 is not an Anchor baby.

crisp444 stated that both of his parents are US citizens.

blacknight04: I have seen no signs of it leaving, etc. the Immigration Forum.

Except by his own admission that he is indeed an anchor baby. Maybe you have him confused with someone else. If his father were an American citizen, he definitely would have pointed that out.

In light of the fact that he would have nothing to gain from his admission, I have to disagree and believe he is indeed an anchor.

Plus Mach states that his illegal mother "got us all away from a corrupt government" and that "we are all Americans now". I wonder what the real story is-sounds like a little bit of inconsistancy. At the very least it is not a very clear explanation-perhaps that was done intentionally.

What happened, did you reconsider after you didn't get the sympathetic response you were hoping for? Man I hate idle threats *struggles to put cork back in vintage bottle of champagne*
Why do you dislike Mach 50 so much?And why were you so hostile about my sending you a PM?

What part of, DO NOT PM me, do you NOT understand? You are entitled to your opinion as I am mine. I don't know Mach50 therefore I have zero emotional attachment to him in terms of liking or disliking him.

I'm not hostile, but I do feel that your unsolicited PM is way out of line. I certainly don't owe you an explanation for any assumption you make.

I am just curious as to why you felt the need to come here and post this? You sent her a DM did you not? She obviously does not wish to communicate with you so you then come publicly on the board and question her? What did you wish to accomplish? Have you ever even posted in the immigration forum before? All of a sudden you feel the need to come and question one of our regulars intentions and "call her out" over the fact she does not want a DM from you. She has a right to request that you-or anyone else-not send her a DM. It seems kind of weird-at least to me that you would make a post like this when you are not even a normal participant in this forum but come here to attack a post-without even knowing the history between mach and Jdubsmom or the history of the forum. Are you a surrogate for those who choose to no longer post here?

their parents either entered legally or found it relatively easy to obtain legal status even if they came illegally.
So, even though it was done "Illegally" and ruined the lifestyle of Legal citizens.....they're credited for it?

Bingo! Which is exactly why I asked this total "stranger" to this forum not to PM me.

They all seem to think we were born this morning precisely at 11:00 am.

It really makes me wonder if those who are going to choose not to post here will be sending their surrogates over.
