When Jessica Colotl, an illegal immigrant college student, got arrested for a minor traffic violation at her suburban Atlanta campus, she became an accidental poster child for immigration reform.

it's tragic that her parents who knowingly broke the law have put their daughter into this position. However, she was not born here, has no legal right to be here and thus should be deported along with her parents.

She was driving without a driver's license. That's ok? What if she'd killed someone? Would ICE still think she was justified in staying here and completing college? Ok, so it was her parents who knowingly came here illegaly, but she's an adult now and needs to act accordingly and be responsible for her actions.

We don't need reform nearly as much as we need our laws enforced.

Jessica's parents did not care that they put her into this position and Jessica grew up knowing that she is/was in this country illegally.

US jails are full of US citizen's who stole to support themselves and/or families. Why should illegals who steal their way into this country be treated better than US citizens?

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

Bu-Bye Jessica.(Good riddance.)

Jessica Colotl is a classic example of how the Arizona law will work.

The Atlanta cops didn't single her out because she looks Mexican or because of some state law that allows them to harrass foreigners.

She was driving badly and without a license so they stopped her just like anyone else.

And that's when it was discovered that she's in the country illegally.

No wonder Obama and La Raza are lying their ass off about the Arizona law.

With all the bad Mexican drivers out there that dad who just took the kids out for an ice cream cone won't be able to weave down the street recklessly or run red lights without some barbarian cop deporting him.

Bummer.

I agree. Let's start reforming this country right now, by sending her back where she belongs immediately, and having all federal funding cut to the idiots running that school who provided her an allocation over legal citizens or foreign students, and for funding her as a state resident.

A lie at this level is intolerable, and this college should be held accountable.

I wonder if she was collecting any tuition assistance?

Notice how some illegal alien apologists answer that question by telling us that of course she was not getting any money

BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE AGAINST THE LAW!!!

Yeah, right.

At any point of her life from ten up, she could have gone and become a legal citizen. She knew she was illegal. Illegal means not according to or authorized by law. Illegal immigrant student hopes case helps reform. By reform does she mean change the definition of illegal? Very confused......I mean fine she cheated the US tax payers for years. Very confused.

Nobody has cared to explain how this illegal immigrant was able to get gov't back student loans. Did she get any Pell grants? She didn't have a driver's license. Did she have auto insurance?

And one last question, since when do people have to obey only those laws they deem they have to?

"On Friday, after getting arrested and released from detention for the second time in just over a month, she told reporters at a news conference she hopes her ordeal can help persuade leaders to work for an overhaul of the country's immigration laws."

Arrested second time in just over a month is her ORDEAL? Breaking the law is an ORDEAL?

i am not a racist. far from hit. What about the people who live in states where medical marijuana is illegal. The people who extremely need the medical marijuana. Not for fun but medically needs. They get in trouble with the law because its illegal if their caught. Is she better then them because of her situation. She had years to make her self legal. She didnt, how is that racist?

What happens to citizens who get caught driving without a license? Why are illegal invaders above the law in the eyes of leftist liberals? Send this invader back across the river - now.

A minor traffic violation? Talk about reality check. No license = no insurance = leech on society ... minor traffic violation? How I wish this girl had hit you and made you permanently disabled ... with no recourse. Then we would see how minor it is. This happens more often by illegals with no lisence and no insurance more than you would think.
Progressives = vacant between the ears.

Because all 14 million (Really, just 14 million, is that what you think?) are here ILLEGALLY. They are all criminals who snuck into the country against the law.

Duh.
