Great, if they want one so badly, they can go about rectifyig their status on their own, and quit demanding that this country keep giving into their every whim and demand. Would they be this bold and outspoken in their country of origin??? What gives them the right to demand anything, when in reality they are nothing more than thieves.

I have officially gone to the land of I just don't care!

When do we hold parents responsible for their children?!!! They will suck on this teat until we stop it!!! They have shared their sob stories ad nauseum!!! They create the problem and our whole nation is suppose to bow down and solve it. F'em!!! Did you notice that each was concerned about driving to their job?!!!!

They say they came here around 10 & 13.

I work in a major metro school district and I can tell you that children as young as first grade know that their families need "paples!!!!" I also know that illegal aliens, no matter how long they have been here, expect to be caught and deported at any time...at least they use to be!

I am also noticing a new trend of where children spend half the year with the deported family parent, and the rest with the US living parent. This presents a problem for ELL because the child will have started to learn English, and forget when they go to Mexico! Now that's the story they should be telling!!!

The only good news about this is that the state of Washington will get a break! However, I must admit that they have cracked down on the qualifying standard somewhat.

What is it with these illegals that makes them feel so entitled to the same rights and privileges that legal citizens have? Why do they think they're so special?

Always trying to get their way, they're forever offering justifications as to why we should give them what they want.

They say they're here illegally so we should just give them legal status...because they aren't going anywhere.

They are driving without licenses, so we should give them licenses...because it would be safer for everyone else.

Enforcing our laws to the fullest extent would solve the entire illegal immigration problem. Unfortunately, these idiots in Washington have hijacked this issue and turned it into a political game of which party can expand their voting block.
