"I live in an unknown right now,"

"I was afraid, I didn't know what was going to happen,"

"Soon after the election, he personally notified me and ASI advisers about his immigration status and volunteered to serve without pay as president, since his status does not allow him to receive a paycheck," Welty said. "I hope our campus and community will remember that diverse colleges and universities better prepare students for the diverse workplace of the future."

"I don't know what will happen," Ramirez said. "There's always that fear but at the same time, I've always lived with that fear, so it's not like too much has changed."

"I graduated a valedictorian... I had excellent grades. I was involved in the community, and that's what they looked at my application. The AB540 law was one of the avenues that allowed me to come in."

"What I have an issue is that his immigration status was outed before he came clean," O'Brien said. "He ran under and gave the perception that he was a legal student, a legal immigrant which is not the case."

"I understand, there are two sides to this issue," added Ramirez. "My hope is to keep serving the students, graduate and hopefully find a solution to my immigration status"

How did he money for tuition- even in state tuition?

Drug dealing, sex trade, robbery, ID theft, tax evasion; there is no legal way for his family to make money.

He said he worked with his parents cleaning rooms and mowing lawns... Who are his parents? Where are they?
Who hired them?

The Dream Act will give us a lot more than we bargained for.

Another tidbit DREAM Act supporters won't tell you is that an illegal alien can have up to two misdemeanor convictions and still qualify for amnesty under the bill. So while you read about valedictorians and class presidents and captains of the debate team, you won't hear about the individuals who have been convicted twice for vandalism or petty theft or simple assault or reckless driving.

So, the Dream Act will give 34 year olds with a GED who like to "Tag" the neighborhood, shop lift , assault us and drive recklessly to get away!

Yeah, the best and brightest.
Free is free

Another puff piece that tries to paint every illegal and a valedictorian, a humanitarian or some other sort of overachiever.

I hope the DREAM act dies and I hope people like this are shown the door. We have plenty of students who can replace him.
