"On Tupero Road they had a killing field. Like every day they took someone to this field and they would just shoot them in front of everybody. It was just terrible," he said. He came to the United States in 1992 and settled in Rhode Island. A civil engineer by education, Akoiwala married and had three children, all of whom are American citizens.

For the past 17 years he's worked, paid his taxes and contributed to his community. He and his wife were granted temporary protection status but now both face deportation. On March 31 they will go from being legal residents to illegal aliens.

Just as illegal means illegal, temporary is just that, temporary. Hopefully she will take her children with her. They can come back when they are of legal age and can provide and make decisions for themselves. When will they stop bringing children into the instability and chaos of their lives? Not only is it selfish and unfair to the children, it's just dead wrong.

They were. It was temporary, which means their time is up. I can't imagine having temporary status in a country and deliberately bringing children into my instability. While I feel bad for the children, if they are angry, at the end of the day, they like the DREAMies have only their parents to blame.

The laws are in place for a reason. Until these people stop assuming that having babies on American soil will give them a free pass to citizenship, then they and their children will continue to suffer the consequences of their irresponsible, devious, and selfish behavior.

I think there were many avenues that could have been pursued to a legal means here but none were taken until it was too late?

Maybe before the economy dropped below sea level, but not now. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, foreclosure rates are skyrocketing and thus there are very few taxpayers.

Think about it this way. No money to pay property taxes; people aren't shopping, thus no sales taxes; corporations are downsizing or completely going under means no corporate taxes or revenue. At the rate things are going it won't be long until unemployment, welfare and every other safety net comes to a complete halt.

The states (especially the sanctuary states) are limping along in the throws of bankruptcy. It appears that Obama has quietly ordered the emptying of jails, stepped up deportation and I predict next will be reduction of the welfare rolls.

For those who are here illegally, the party really is over and there won't be another one for a very long time.

Hence quite a few of the illegal alien apologists here either starting to 'see the light' or becoming more and more insulting as public opinion hardens.

No, there weren't.

Ask American revolutionaries what it was like to fight the British, to live in the cold and famine. Ask what it was like to fight family in the Civil War. To live in the Dust Bowl. To fight for a union against the robber barons. Then take that information and determination, go back to Liberia, China, Cuba and Mexico and pick up a gun, a stick or a rock and fight the powers that be for your country.

Comparing those conflicts then, in one part of the world, to these conflicts now, in another part of the world, is folly. You should really educate yourself on the nature of it before saying such things.

I'm very well educated, thank you.
Why is it folly? I would say it was WORSE back then because we didn't have an international media that could bring attention to conflicts and raise money and weapons for groups.
It's not folly. Stay and fight for your freedom and your country, don't run away and then complain.
