It takes a lot of time and money to become a citizen. We will eventually be given amnesty and all the benefits that come with it. Many like myself deserve it more than others because we were brought here as infants and had nothing to say about it.

Well juan, your business is flourishing isn't it? use some of that money to apply legally, this should be no problem UNLESS you owe back taxes? In this case you won't QUALIFY. Instead you would be hauled off to serve time for tax evasion and all your belongings would be sold off by the gov. as partial payment towards taxes owed. If and when your case goes before a judge you definitely would be found guilty of knowingly, intentionally and willfully WITHHOLDING payment of taxes to the fed. gov. it wouldn't matter that you HAD NO SAY SO when you were brought here WHO CARES ABOUT THAT? you had plenty of time to apply legally as you reached your 18th birthday. But naw, you just wanted to take your chances that someday UNDESERVINGLY you'd become an unenthusiastic citizen. Well we want patriotic citizens not those seeking only the (NOT THERE) social sec. benefits. Your parents in Presidio are dwindling away CITIZENS' social security. Why don't you have a long talk with them on this topic AND DEMAND SOME ANSWERS FROM THEM. There are no more funds for seniors, people like your illegal parents made out like bandits running off with OUR BENEFITS!!! looks like you're paying the price for your parents sins.

You are not exactly knowledgeable one the subject are you? Do you seriously think that it is possible for an undocumented person to change their status? In most cases it is not. That is the whole point of the debate.

It is a good thing we have a civil service system to employ people who are otherwise unemployable.

Ima, you have so much hate in your heart, your not a happy person. We do not ask for much, just as your grand-parents came from all we ask for is a chance to improve our lives. We are not rich people, we work hard for everything we have. All we ask for is a chance for a better life for our children and grand children, something you would also want.
