So then you are saying it is ok to let people who are illegally here to take these spots? I THINK NOT. People who are here illegally have no right to take anybody's spot, PERIOD.
The only spot they are entitled to is a seat on a bus trip back to their home countries. Heck, I'll even pay for it!
That's what I think too.

@ mandate & Thorn --

What part of ILLEGAL don't you two understand???

If we make exceptions for these illegals, then I assume I can pick and choose what federal law I can break and get away with. Right? In other words, if a member of Congress can bypass A LAW by simply introducing a waiver exception based on emotion, then doesn't it stand to reason that I can get away with a felony based on emotional reasons too?

I just don't understand why some illegals can get away with circumventing federal law, while I, an American citizen, am subject to the strictest sense of the law with no exception. IS THIS JUSTICE?? I THINK NOT.

It's all politics, that's what. All the Congress people who introduce "immigration exceptance" bills DO SO for votes. THEY ARE VOTE-WHORES, that's all.

Fight this b.s. and get them deported.

Unemployment among American college graduates of all ages for nearly three years has been double what it was during the previous decade -- and brand new grads face much worse odds. But Pres. Obama does not believe these grads are competing with enough people in the jobs lines.

He decries the fact that we "force" 400,000 foreign citizens each year to return home after they graduate from U.S. colleges. He says we need them here. Can you imagine how much worse life would be for our own kids if they had another 400,000 competitors in the job market EACH YEAR? That would be 4 million more competitors each decade.

Cry babies. They have know all along they were ILLEGAL. Talk to the parent and ask why did you make me like this I will always be less than I can be because you only thought of yourself. Now the kids
will work Illegally and follow in their parents foot steps. To bad the parent are crooks, now their children are crooks and they want Americans to feel sorry for these kids. I don't think so. Let them go to college on their parents dime since they got their elementary and high school educations free, I am not willing to give them free college educations as well.

Perez, who just finished her freshman year at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, said protesting the laws was "absolutely" worth it because she feared such laws would hamper her ability to finish school and get a good job.

How did she get money for tuition?

She has no legal way to earn money.

Did IUPUI get a visa for her- since they are required by law to get visas for foreign students.
