Good luck?

Most of our parents had the means and stability to bring a child into the world. They did not intentionally make one and break into another country with the hope that the benevolence of foreigners would support them!

This girl has 20,000,000 of her countrymen to thank for her issues.

This is a nation of laws. Selective enforcement brings more and more abuse.

First off she says are laws are messed up---i say no they are not--your an illegal breaking the law --plus the federal authorites that released you for one year also are breaking the law--plus your attorney is a douche bag--plus you will never be an attorney yourself in this country --it is against the law to hire someone without legal documentation to work legally in this country--but you could be an attorney in Mexichit

You got it right Whitey.

I find it outrageous that ILLEGAL ALIENS think they can force us to change our laws by breaking them. What's even more outrageous is they demand the protection of our laws when they get caught.

The most effective way to make a change is to give Obama the change he promised us. Come November every member of the House of Representatives and 1/3 of the Senate is up for re-election. Make a clean sweep of them all. We must demand that every elected official uphold our laws or toss them out of office.

The citizens run this country not the politicians.

The problem goes right back to her parents. It's difficult to fathom how those who defy American law can derive benefits for their children by their defiance, or that any sovereign nation would allow such a thing. These children are just like their lawbreaking parents; always blaming someone else for their problems and never taking responsibility for their actions.

She hopes it leads to reform? For her that means amnesty and citizenship, for me, a US citizen, it means enforcement of the law.

This is good. Ga. is one of the states that wants to enact a AZ like law and this will get the people's blood boiling.

I bet AZ has thousands of students getting schooling on a US tax payers dime. Schools better start looking at their student body.
