Amnesty always happens. Obama ran on it, there are already 60 million
hispanics here and that number is very conservative.
If you do not like it, you should leave.
Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. It is what it is. Go and live where you will be at your best and good luck.

No, government statistics say there are 45 million Hispanics in this country. Inflating the numbers doesn't help any. I don't care if they are here or not just as long as they are here legally. Obama lied about amnesty just as most all politicians will lie for votes.

Your desperation is obvious. I live here in Arizona and have seen with my own two eyes the mostly Hispanic illegal aliens flee since 2007-----------judging by the many empty storefronts and apts in the barrios.

If anything; we are going to wind up occupying part of Mexico if that sorry excuse of a nation fails to reign in its drug cartels--------especially with what just happened in Juarez today.

If we can't find U.S. citizens or legal immigrants more deserving than this illegal who have the smarts to get into Harvard we have major problems.
Excuse me? I want to attend U of L in two years when I graduate. I am illegal so they are 90% going to reject me. But if I do get in im not gonna have to pay 8K like you do. Oh no, im gonna have to dish out 80K for out of state tuition. fair? and i dont even get financial aid. and i didnt enter illegally. my family and i actually entered with a 5 year visa.

It is very fair. Exit the country and re-enter legally. Do you honestly believe that you should be rewarded for violating our immigration laws?

Confused... so are you an illegal or aren't you??
If you are an illegal, you should not only have to pay an out of state rate, you should have to pay an out of country rate (actually, not be allowed to attend at all)

However, if you are here on a visa, then you are not an illegal

I'm not sure why you are stating you are illegal if you are not here on an expired visa.

Do you think you should pay less than a citizen from someplace like South Dakota? You would be charged the same tuition that someone from any other state pays. Do you realize that many students don't get financial aid even though their parents are paying into a system that gives money to other students?

Excuse me? Excuse me????? Really, are there no colleges in the country of your origin? Why should taxpayers pay your way?

I really hope you will answer because I don't understand your way of thinking.

Hint: "illegal", without "illegal entry" (there is no "five year visas") is a "visa overstay"...

I realize that. They are still illegal. Hint: That means not here legally which means they are an "illegal".
