Thank you. Trust me, I am doing everything to right this wrong.
Why should you stay here over immigrants that are waiting in their own country to enter here they legal way? The right thing for you to do is go back to your own country and apply to enter here legally.

There are no short cuts to American citizenship,its worth more than that!

This typical illegal alien liar does not want to do it the right way. She stated in another thread that she is waiting for Obama to pass amnesty...typical -- wants the easy way out. She also stated so many lies about how she got here and all the rest that she is no longer credible. It was the O.C. Immigration Groups thread. Typical lie, cheat and steal illegal alien crap from her.

Stereotyping is a sign of ignorance. I am not a sterotypical immigrant. I have never broken the law. I have never asked the government for any financial aid in any sense of the word. And I have never, never thought I was above the law or any American citizen for that matter. I have a 3.97 GPA and I am not sharing this with you to gloat or make you feel compassionate. I share this to show that all immigrants are not the same. I am not above the law! I am not above any citizen and I don't want to be treated in any special manner. I only want the opportunity to help this country succeed as it is all that I have ever known. I am not asking for free services and items. I am not asking to be placed above anyone on the wait list. I am simply asking for an opportunity. I would not mind waiting twenty years for citizenship as long as during those twenty years I received permission to work and attend school. I am not here to cause headaches or quagmires. I sply want the chance to pursue that ever glorios American Dream.
You have received 'free' services. Your parents didn't pay for the expensive K-12 education you received, Americans did. And, you are breaking the law as willingly as your parents did and the proof of that is that you are an adult and you know you are here illegally and you remain. There are immigrants who asked for a chance LONG before you did. Leave the country and file to come legally bc we are not going to give you a chance any other way.

Actually, I think myself and others are saying that this person is here illegally and he and his parents need to leave the country and apply to come legally.

Yes I would and I have done so. We have laws for a reason. Just because they are your parents doesn't give them the right to get away with with criminal acts.

I too am sick and tired of my tax dollars funding the support of illegal aliens. If our government could give us the option of where we want our money to go I would definitely not support any organization such as Medical, etc. as they will help an illegal before Americans. So what is this American New Tea Party? I have been out sick for over a week, did I miss something?
