As I sit here and read all of these comments it saddens me. All this debate about immigration and rights is ignorant. We have been fighting over the right to be in a nation that was created through the process of immigration. Everyone has suffered the wrath of immigration policies from the beginning. At times it was the Irish, Eastern Europeans, Central Americans, Mexicans, etc. The list goes on. Then everyone uses money as an excuse "are they receiveing more"? Instead of arguing about things that we will never agree on why can't we just be proud of those that have found a way to fight for an education. These CAMP graduates will help this economy but most importantly they will help our society. Whether people like ir or not Hispanics are the fastest growing minority; at NMSU 42% of students are Hispanic. NMSU is classified as a Hispanic serving institute. My adivce for those of you who don't agree with this program is to take the time and research your arguements. Take a history book dust it off and open it, read the Economist, look in government websites, and anywhere where you might be getting your information to be prepared to give an educated and articulate argument. That's what CAMP has taught me. Not to judge, love others, accept people for their differences and above all work together to better this nation. We aren't here to steal any money. I love my profession and I will teach many students and it won't matter to them if I was an immigrant or whether a federally funded program got me through my education. My skills and education will allow me to teach all of these students and I will never make ignorant, uneducated comments about something unless I've taken the time to understand the other side of the debate. Y como dicen muchos, de aqui no nos sacan estamos listos para transformar este pais y hacerlos un lugar de entendimiento y apoyo haci todos. SI SE PUEDE Y ARRIBA CAMP!!!!!!!!!!

Yawn, what ever. You act like you came over 3000 miles of physcial barrier that is the Atlantice ocean in the 19th century with 30 other nationalities speaking 30 other languages ready to assimilate. You didn't and you aren't. You aren't even coming into this country legally for the most part."You" are also coming by the multi-millions,day after day, week after week, month after month year after year, typically illegally. It is getting tiresome. We have our own culture, demographics, and history to maintain and our own children to feed in the USA.
