Why ? Didn't they take enough taxpayer funded education ? We need to start billing countries of origin for their educations. No sympathy no reward for people who break our laws.

Hurrah! Since one Mexican finished college, we should have a massive amnesty and let these ambitious aliens stay here and compete with our legal students for the few available jobs.

NOT!!

Don't forget to pay back your student loans. Now go do something great in Mexico.

Shouldn't universities be checking the "legal status" of students before they can hold office? Just deport this one and call it a day!

How did this messycan get into college. Who paid for his or her tuition? Don't tell me, the poor taxpayers. Deport this garbage and do your good deed for the day.

I am wondering how he managed to pay for his education, Mom? what job would provide her son with this kind of education? How can they expect to get supported for their cause when they've been breaking the law all these years??? As bright as he may be, he broke the law from the beginning? Why should we give him preference when they are doing wrong? They don't mention if mom is legally here. He almost pulled it off! If he had student loans, was being here legally not a requirement? Or they lied, used stolen identity? They lied, lied,lied and this cannot be overlooked!!!!! What a mess they got themselves into, even mom. She helped him lie!

Guess he isn't very good at law school if he tried to go around the law when his mom got married.

Is he one of Mexico's brightest? omg
