Eweerek!!! This is not logical! I admire the fact that he has taken full advantage of what we have made available to him, but he has blinders on!!!

First of all, Mr. Genius, THERE ARE NO JOBS IN AMERICA FOR YOUR DREAMS TO GET!!! SECOND, THE BUSINESSES THAT "IMMIGRANTS" START END WITH THEM HIRING THEIR OWN!!!

Start with how to get jobs for Americans first!!! We didn't, and DON'T illegal aliens to "stimulate" our economy. This is insane! The people who have drug Callie down to competing with Mississippi for the lowest in the nation by far offset ONE UC, self centerd Berkerly grad student!!!

Don't be fooled by this crap!!! The failures of immigration are in front of your face!!!

P.S., How many Asian students do you see for Dream Act, etc., except this one! No need, they are a can do culture! Too bad it isn't about them, but a bunch of hispanic peasants!

The last time I was in Boston, my Brother lives their, we went to Harvard for some visit's. I swear 90% of the student's were Chinese. I'm not angry that the Chinese have good intelligent people who achieve great thing's, but I'm am insulted when our Government allows thousands to be Educated in our finest University's, and then leave this Country take our secret's, with them and fortify their own Country's. We need to spend time and energy educating Americans Men and Women, and stop allowing millions of illegals to be Educated in this Country.They need to bring Americans up to speed and we can do this if we stop putting illegals first.

Americans don't need to be brought up to speed, that's the reason they come! One of the biggest fallacies is that they have to import skills because we don't have them here! We have them by the truck loans in unemployed and UNDERemployed Americans!!! This is just crap perpetuated by the business class so that they have workers they pay less wages!!!

The pandering needs to stop!
Americans need be given preference.
The high price per credit hours along with all the extra fees added on to our tuition needs to be investigated because it is pure n simple thievery.
Many students do not qualify for grants. When you have all these foreign students and now these so called "Dreamers" with all this free money (grants and scholarships) applying to these schools, the school will take them in a heart beat.It's all about money.
