They immigrated!!!! They what? They broke in an took whatever they wanted without permission. We don't give a rat's arse. Go home apply legally, we give way to much air time to these lawbreaker's. They're illegal aliens who came here under false pretense, used someone else's identity, cheated all other legal immigrant's their right's to come to this Country through the front door. Go home, take your parent's and uncle with you.

At age 2 she had no choice in the matter.
.
Now what should happen is her parents, the people who employed her parents should get heavy fines with that money returned back to the American people as illegals effectively stole from law abiding Americans.
.
What ever shape immigration reform takes, employers who employ illegals should pay back breaking fines and then have that fine money returned back to the American people.

the only way to make this right if all leave right now and try to come back legally,not going back first is a reward. thing is once they are gone being here once illegally should be reason to never let them back,we do not need them. the immigration system is not to help the immigrant or the illegal alien it is only for the good of the country.at this time there is no need for any immigrants legal or illegal.

The Mark Levin Show is all about the Illegal Immigration Reform with a special guest who has read the whole 800 plus pages put forth by the Gang of Eight; if anyone care to log-in and listen. This whole bill will ruin us economically.

i heard the gang of 8 are scrambling to try and cover their rears and take away and add to it, something of fixing the bill.

easy fix throw it in the trash and remove the gang of 8 from their job. when these things are done behind closed door it is known to be against the citizens otherwise it would be out in the open. the last time they tried to push shamnesty the same thing behind closed doors.

Many Illegal Mexicans are very naive and believe Obama & Co. truly care,others are smart,know how to work our system.
The latter are the one's that will fight us and who we need to be aware of /keep an eye on.

You must be new here. Most bills are not passed. This amnesty is having trouble in the Senate. I don't know why the democrats drew so much attention to it. Even they know it won't past. Maybe they thought if they hyped it up enough Americans and republicans would cave in.

The house will never allow this to pass. You noticed that the past week or so you have not heard much about it, democrats are dragging their feet.

seems all the attention was only to show they are trying. with all the loopholes in the bill there is no way anyone in the right mind would support it.could be why they are said to be trying to fix it,though they have had ample time to get it right.could also be the reason they wanted to push it through before anyone had time to check it out.

True, but making things right is within her capability. Why should the government make things right for her? Why do illegls always expect to be handed the gift of citizenship, while doing nothing more than demanding it because their parents broke our laws?

Exactly, as she is working a job that an American might need and would and could certainly work. Is she paying taxes, is she driving without a license to her job? All we ever hear is gimme, gimme, because my parents brought me here; it's not my fault. When they are of an age to correct their status, do they ever proactively make the attempt to do so? I guess it's so much easier to whine and demand.

Whats really stupid is america could not catch this girl in 13 years in school ??? Why ???? because you dont have to prove citizen ship to go to school ??? sTUPID!!!!!!!!!We need to pass a law that they have to prove citizenship and if they are illegal find out where their parents and family are and if they are illegal and deport them all . poor thing has been in the wring country for 25 years , time to send her home. She will do just fine there Im sure they have resturants there she can work in .. An american here needs her job.
