""By not providing pathways to legalization, the United States not only risks creating an underclass, but also fails to develop a potentially valuable human resource," the report said."

Just look at the countries these people come from, it's no wonder. You can take the illegal out of Mexico but you can't take the Mexico out of the illegal.

There are also Mexicans who think they can drive without a license and insurance and can't read Spanish and/or speak English.

Don't educate them, and help them to close the gap, and we will regret it forever.

Don't worry Adam illegals and their anchors is the voters top priority, we want them gone and citizenship revoked to all anchors and I won't stop bothering congress untill they listen. These parasitic childern they have grow up and gangbang harder than our born and raised gangbangers, it's the illegals anchors messing it up for the illegals and they should feel ashamed but they don't, they want america to bend rules for them and theirs while our kids suffer in over crowded classrooms, clinics, hospitals , low skilled jobs, social services just about anything they can get their hands on. Our government will be held accountable for this future tsunami.

Hispanics have the second highest high school dropout rate in the country. This dropout rate is only exceeded by that of the "native Americans".

This, of course, is no coincidence due to the fact that both share a common ancestral background.

BTW Adam, Mexicans have accomplished little in regard to engineering, medical, and technology advancements, discoveries, and inventions during the last 500 years. Mexicans, and Hispanics in general, have a very long history of chronic underachievement. It's foolish to think that anyone can "educate" these people beyond their "third world" culture of dependence and over-breeding.

Some are unable to get to work without driving. Many don't have the money for the high cost of insurance.

Have you ever heard of PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION? And when they cause an accident who should pay for the damage??? And the reason insurance is so high is because of the ILLEGAL ASSHOLES who cause the accident without insurance dirty bag all you ILLEGALS do is whine...You losers need to learn RESPNSIBILITY and grow up and stop your whining and complaining since you never had it so good...

Then legally they can't drive as insurance (at least liability) is mandatory in all 50 States. In fact in some States they'll impound your car.

I blame the white people in the schools for this problem. I illegally migrated to america so that my kids can get a good education and this is how america treats me? This is racist.

You didn't migrate here..you slithered like a coward..If you don't like how your treated don't let the door lat the boarder hit you in the ass. What america should roll out the red carpet for your spawn..WHY do you think your special? Are you paying for your spawns education or is the american tax payer? If it upset you so much take out your check book and YOU pay for your spawns private schooling. Until you start paying for your spawns education keep you mouth shut you racist.
