Please provide us with the details about the American child who was denied of an education. Not vague rantings. Details.

Ok, a compelling story, but she is hardly the typical illegal alien. This is yet another puff piece, intended to make mainstream mediots believe all illegal aliens are a net gain for our society.

How about a profile on the latvian hooker, the gangbanger who tags neighborhood walls for fun or the guy who was just arrested for impregnating his girlfriend's 9-YO daughter?

Let's have a little balance with this "faces of immigration" crap.

Millions of drunk driving illegals killing thousands of people each year? I was stunned when I read this and wanted to learn more, but unfortunately I could not find anything on the subject.

Please provide the link that contains the statistics.

This story makes me want to throw up. We over stayed our visas because we could , (we didn't cross the border on foot we used an airplane)and now after violating Americas immigration laws, we get a big reward , citizenship. How about you break the law no reward no citizenship go back to the end of the line. The federal government is broken. Citizenship is now a prize in a cracker jack box.

It is a known fact that our schools are extremely overcrowded, more attention is paid towards the non english speaking students just so they can have an education, etc. etc. It does not take a "brain" to figure out that American children are not getting the quality of education most of us older citizens received. I am not blaming the teachers, poor things work their butts off, I am blaming our politicians and government that allowed the overcrowding to happen by turning a "blind eye" regarding the illegal alien invasion. I have all the respect in the world for people who really came here LEGALLY to improve their lives, I am talking about the ones who are not living off of someone elses identification, sucking our government programs dry, expecting the citizens of another nation to support them and their children. I have all the respect in the world for the people who followed our immigration laws to become legal, just like (if their country allowed it) they would expect Americans to do in their country.

The Mexican Constitution, Chapter II, Article 30, paragraph II, states that you are a Mexican by birth if born on foreign territory, sons or daughters of Mexican parents born in national territory. There you have it! Anchor Babies are not U.S. citizens! They are citizens of Mexican according to the Mexican Constitution.

“April 4, 1997, President Sedillo of Mexico stated that “We will not tolerate foreign forces dictating and enacting laws on Mexicans. Our contention is that we are not enacting or dictating any laws on the Mexican illegal alien children born by illegal alien females in the US territory. Further, he states that “he was going to use all diplomatic and legal forces at his disposal to….protect Mexicans living in the United States.”

"“A birth certificate is not in itself anything but a piece of paper. Just like a marriage license! Until you go to the church and get the blessing from your church then and only then is that “Marriage License” a valid marriage. The birth certificates that these illegal alien mothers have acquired are nothing more than a piece of paper without the full authority of allegiance to the United States of America. These illegal alien infants born in the USA are unable to swear allegiance to the USA and are unable to be automatically bestowed and granted something that they have never sworn allegiance too."

"This should be pro immigration forces final nail in the coffin...Anchor Babies are NOT U.S. Citizens!!!

"Any Anchor Baby, regardless of age should be given the choice to either pay back all the monies they have stolen from the likes of free education, free housing, free welfare, free healthcare,free social services..etc. OR leave the country."

It's takes too much time & money to pick and choose which illegal aliens are good illegal aliens and which are bad illegal aliens. All of them broke the law.

HAHAHA. Nothing on the subject? What a liar you are.

All mexicans are drunk drivers. Not even they can drink the water in their cesspool of a country so everyone drinks alcohol and drives drunk. Completely accepted in mexico even if you kill someone!! Then they come here.

Mr. Obama my family values were set by my Grand Parents over 70 years ago. As we Immigrated legally into the United States. When our Country called we were there, an ,Uncle, Cousin, Brother, Sister and even my Grand Pa who was killed on a Normandy beach. We have served this/our country faith fully in all conflicts from WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Pamama, Desert storm, Somalia and the current desert wars. It is my deep feeling that you don't give a shit about the American people. You only care about your agenda to turn this great nation into a sociolinguistic state. God Bless America.

Take a trip to New Mexico, and see the signs along the highways, saying "Report drunk drivers" with the phone number etc. Why, because New Mexico is one of the states with the highest number of drunk drivers. Mmm - close to the Mexican border too. Lots of illegals there and more came from Arizona, after SB 1070 was signed by Gov. Brewer, to get drivers licenses. If you have never been hit by an illegal driver - count yourself lucky.

Wow, we have a woman and her husband who came here on a visa, to learn English with the intent on going back? I seriously doubt that is the real truth. Can anyone claim they want to learn French - go to France on a visa and stay forever...forever..forever...
