It's not MY fault either. Why should my kids be punished with decreased resources because Mexicans refuse to make demands on their own government?



Young illegals are not problem or my fault. They and their parents need to finally do the right thing and go home.

My son just finished college today. He is a citizen as we are. He paid the price and we did too. He now needs to find a job along with the thousands of others who just today finished college. NO ILLEGAL HAS A RIGHT TO EVEN GET IN THE SAME LINE TO APPLY FOR WORK...... Come in legal and then go to the BACK OF THE FRIGGIN LINE.. Americans first and I dont give a ratts ass about any illegal wanting to get a job BEFORE my kid does.

That's why parents should consider carefully what position they're putting their children in before they undertake an illegal action. Children always suffer because of the poor choices their parents make, and illegal immigration is a prime example. Children aren't entitled to benefit from the illegal actions of their parents. If a man steals a car, and gives it to his son, does that mean the son gets to keep the car, because he's not the one who stole it? Illegal immigration is the same thing. Parents are giving their children something they have no right to give, so the children are left to pay the consequences.

They learn the culture and language of their homelands through their parents at home. I never met a Hispanic family yet whether they be here legally or illegally that didn't practice that culture in their homes or didn't know their native langauge (that would be true of other illegals also). Many live in Hispanic neighborhoods so I don't know what you mean by they can't identify with their homelands.

The topic is about college educated illegals so why would they only get $8.00 a day if they moved back to their homelands? I don't know why it would be considered a horror for them to go back to their homelands. No, it wasn't their fault that they were brought here illegally however it isn't punishing them for their parent's mistakes but rather not rewarding their parents for theirs.

It's about time . . . ENOUGH is ENOUGH.

Isn't it about time to return home and fix the problems in your own country? Weren't all the "freebies," including most if not all of the education, enough?

Not a bad idea, but then they would have to live in conditions not as nice as here....

Their parents had no ties to this country, and left everything behind when they came here.

Punished for something their parents did? Since when is living in another country considered punishment? Isn't it more like repatriation?
