Wahhhhh, I want to hear more illegal alien sob stories.

About 65,000 children who have lived in the United States illegally for five years or longer graduate from high school each year, according to a 2009 report by The College Board, a not-for-profit that aims to connect students to college opportunities.

We don't need the Dream Act, we want our immigration laws enforced.

As soon as they each pay the $60,000.00 plus bill for the education they have already stolen from the U.S. taxpayers then they can start looking at college.

These people who are raising money for illegals need to be prosecuted for their aiding and abetting illegal aliens.
It is the law! Why is it not enforced?

It's Chicago, they only enforce laws when they want. Just look at Daley's record (or the Chicago Demonicrat machine-same thing).

You think Obama will do anything to change that? I don't see that happening.

Why is it that Americans are always responsible? What about these kids' parents? They are the one's that put the kids in this position. They've already received an education at the taxpayers' expense! As far as other students getting better opportunities: their parents have been paying into the tax system to fund these schools for years. Let them go back to their country of origin for their higher education. Don't they have dual citizenship?

Think about the can of worms the DREAM Act would open. All the children of taxpaying citizens being skipped over in favor of childrne of non-tax paying citizens. Sounds pretty stupid to me.

The DREAM Act would be a huge mistake. It's going to accomplish nothing more than heavily increasing chain migration and further saturating this country with those who are going to become a substantial burden on the tax coffers.

There's nothing anybody can say to convince me my income should be doled out to subsidize college tuition for illegals. If anything, we should all get a fat refund check for being forced to fund their K-12 education.
