Americans are like that. They object to foreigners invading their country and stealing their jobs and tax dollars.

It's quite a story. A perspective that may support examination of the current immigration laws.

But, How many Joe's are there?

This article was written by the infamous, amnesty-advocate Ruben Navarrete. No one of logical thinking and lawful behavior believes him. His modus operandi is sob stories; he LOVES to ply on American's emotions. His goal is to tug at your emotional heartstrings sooooo strongly that you forget LAW exists. He is a charlatan.

And as for the poster child he used for this article, too bad so sad. Many Americans HAVE WORST STORIES. But they are Americans so they have first priority here. This Lebanese illegal alien is NOT OUR PROBLEM. I will be the first to give my tax dollar to a starving, homeless American rather than to this illegal alien who has benefitted richly from our tax dollar.

Go home! Selef-deport yourself and your illegal parents!!! This is your family's problem; not an American taxpayer problem!!!!!! Tell your parents to do the right thing and take you back to Lebanon with them!!!

Well, Mr. Navarrette put your money where your mouth is. You stated in your article - "once an ILLEGAL ALIEN is detected they should be detained and deported." Did you call ICE when you detected this 22 year old illegal from Lebanon?

I didn't think so.

The ILLEGAL ALIEN parents of this 22 year old brought their family here to get free medical care for another son. Nice!

He may "think of himself as an American" but the fact is he isn't an American.

Joe asks, "What am I supposed to do?"
Hey, Joe, try going back to Lebanon and applying to come here legally.

This young man has ONLY his lawbreaking parents to blame, just like the child of any AMERICAN parent who makes the decision to break the law.

The illegal alien should be gratefull he got a free education. Now he can go back to Lebanon and work for his government. No reason to reward illegal activity.

Navarrette doesn't even care about the illlegals. He's just another vulture hired by Business to write pro-illegal articles.

Shouldnt this article read

"Dreams of the American Dream, Denied -TO AMERICAN CITIZENS WHO PAID FOR IT!!!!!!!" ??!!

I mean-after all the illegal dream is NOT the american dream (work hard etc)-it is a dream of raping another country for its wealth and stealing from its resources! It has NOTHING to do with building a better life for anyone but themselves!
