Legal immigrants cannot, nor should be compared with those who've snuck into OUR country! Illegal alien border jumpers have the right to LEAVE and nothing more!

Well what about children whose parents came here legally with them and never filed permenant papers for them so they are living here with no means to live a normal life. Thats my situation my father never took the time to file for me and my sister now we have to wait like everyone else for the Dream Act to pass. No one should blame a child for their parents mistake period.

No one should reward you for your parents' mistake either. Blame them not the USA

You didn't many stories about bloated government when the republicans had the house senate and the WH 2000- 2006.

You won't hear it when republicans are back in control again.

Well your father screwed you. If you plan a trip to travel on Christmas weekend but never made reservations for tickets. You walk up to the counter and all flights are booked, why can't the children fly because of the mistake of the parent? Stupid huh?

When i took my son to the Philippines when he was 4 months old he had to have a passport & visa to travel along with my wife. You have to do what you have to do, cover all bases and do follow ups. Even thou my second son was born in the Philippines i had to do paperwork to ensure his US citizenship plus attain his passport.

Your dad dropped the ball and you are in fact citizens of another country. The Dream act will never pass because American citizens don't want illegal foreigners in the country. It's going to get alot worse for illegals as money runs out of state budgets.
States can no longer support foreigners and their children.
