LOL! so true. DREAMIES are just a catalyst for the majority of NIGHTMARES that take over entire neighborhoods. In my neck of the woods, no one even speaks English for the miles on end. How do they expect to be educated in U.S colleges? DREAMIES are a very tiny tiny percentage of illegals, and maybe they do have brains/speak english/etc ...but rules are rules, no amnesty period, which includes this bill disguised as a form of it.

I was very lucky that as I child I came and went. I recognize both countries but most of these kids were brought when they were little and no nothing about where they came from.

Well during your comings and goings you, too were in an unfamiliar country at some point, not? Guess it works out in the end. Whether you start in your country of origin and move here or if you start here and move back...that initial change is the same.

People that are deported will then get to experience what their parents did. At least their parents can help them with the transition.

Unfortunately this isn't true for American citizens that are having to help their children live through the transformation of the US turning into a Mexican slum.
