I went to the Florida DMV to get a Florida ID card, not a driver's license, which costs $5 and allows one to get discounts at Disney and other parks. You get larger discounts with a FL ID card than you do with a retired/disabled military ID. Took my military ID, student ID, NC Driver's license and my utility bill's to verify my having lived in FL for over a year as a student. Couldn't get an ID! The hispanic who waited on me said I needed a US Passport or certified birth certificate to prove I was a US citizen! Amazing! Probably two million illegals driving in FL, lots of them with resident ID's and discounted annual passes at Universal City, Disney, Seaworld and Bush Gardens and they aren't even legal aliens but I couldn't get an ID. The south and Southwest have become part of Central America and US citizens do not have the same rights/privileges as "Illegals", let alone, that a retired US military person has to pay over $100 more for an annual pass to "DISNEY" than an illegal who can't even speak english. Told the guy that I guess I didn't speak the right language, in spanish! He was a real "hardass". Half the employees were hispanic, probably came to the US illegally or were the spawn of illegals or cuban which get "special" privileges, hell of a note!

You assume.

You can't.

Many are here legally.

I hope these parents have the ability to provide food, clothing, and shelter for all their family members, and have the ability to pay for their medical care - I surely don't.
I live around the corner from the Deynega family. They live in a lovely home that I believe was built by Mr. Deynega. The children are truly a blessing. They are friendly, very well-mannered and thoughtful. Also, they appear healthy, clean, nicely dressed and well fed. Just before Christmas, several of the Deynega girls brought me a gift containing handmade slippers and homemade polish sausage. I live alone and their gesture made my holiday. I am grateful to have such fine neighbors.

Folks if you think the foreign language or at least the way it is taught in school will enable you to actually go out ;and speak the language whatever that might be, you are sadly mistaken and misguided. it has no resemblance. there are numerous nuances. methods of pronunciation, etc. that are different. get over it.
