He said he's greatful his father brought him here and that his father is not a criminal. Actually your father is the reason for all your sleepless nights and fear of deportation. And he's definitely nothing more than a criminal. These people along with all the bleeding hearts in this country have a lot of balls trying to make this look like its ok to come to America illegally. Critics are on point when they say legalizing these people would spark another wave or should I say tsunami of more aliens who would do nothing but bring the wages in this country down. These "kids" would be perfect to go.back and help that country lift its self up from the ground. Mexico will always remain the same if nobody from that country takes control and make real changes. Go home and deal with your problems and stop being a burden on the American people.

the drug cartels do rule a tiny part of Mexico just like they do in the USA
Go for a hike in the mountains of California
Take a walk thru pt Richmond
Check out DC, Houston, Detroit or most other American cities

Name one city in the USA where more than 20 of the people on the Forbes list of top 25 richest people all own homes?

Mexican drug cartels can be taken down easily. Blaming my country for mexicos failures is the only thing they can do. Americans love drugs but nobody makes Mexicans sell it to my country. Like I said send them back home and help or should I say destroy the government that allows these cartels to rule the people. The problem with Latin countries is that they have to many cowards that won't make changes because they fear losing their life for a better country so they justify thier cowardly ways by blaming everything on my country and crossing my borders and when they find out my country has more compassion they take advantage.

Well, just another Legal
student getting the shaft in place of a legal one, at our expense. I almost laughed my ass of reading this crap. The sob stories never seem to end with these people. They've been crying their eyes out all the way to ER, when ill, Social services including food stamp's, Reduced rent. Driving illegally without insurance, so they can say oh sorry sorry, my Dad's a good guy. Go home, apply for legal means to enter. No one feels sorry for these people anymore....

If America didn't have such a high demand for drugs the drug cartel wouldn't be business.
