Discrimination?! Why do you keep posting on this forum? You are clearly just a damned fool, a lowlife thief, liar and cheat! Discrimination? Please, make me laugh again. Tell me how the white people stole a huge part of Mexico again or how we abused the Indians. You are a LaRaza stooge, parroting arguments that make no sense. Why, why am I wasting time on such an ignorant scumbag like you? GFY

I hate to break it to you, but I don't see that happening, as they aready have people who answer to them. So now, you have kids that you claim...outstanding. Do you support them?

Even if they do graduate they will be used. Employers will still pay them less. Many illegals or what does our Government call them?,"Dreamers" will not get to far without long term legal documentation. Yes they may slid through for 2 year with temp. credentials,after that then what?
We have to look at the massive use of fraudalant SS cards and other forms of Identity theft they use. As a volunteer for AARP as a tax preparer I have dealt with illegals with IDs so bad the ink came off on my hands. We called IRS and were told "do your jobs, IRS will enforce the law."

Many undocumated workers have children born in the U. S.
There's nothing wrong with it.

Couldn't agree more. Our Vets deserve much more than illegals.

Umm excuse you? You don't 'deserve' anything. Discrimination has nothing to do with deserving anything. Every race is discriminated against. I'm a white girl from the U.S. Women we're pushed around for thousands of years and you don't see me complaining about it and demanding things. Do you want to know why? It's because I, as a person, was never put down for being a woman. I don't deserve to be treated any differently than any other person.

Just change your name to Garcia, bring in some forged documents and you will have it made. And round up some kids to claim as yours. If you have any trouble just make a scene and scream "racial profiling." Works everytime.

"the benefits the Post-9/11 GI Bill will pay include:

Your full tuition & fees directly to the school for all public school in-state students. For those attending private or foreign schools tuition & fees are capped at the national maximum rate. Click here for more information.
If you are attending a private Institution of Higher Learning in AZ, MI, NH, NY, PA, SC or TX you may be eligible for a higher tuition reimbursement rate. Click here for more information.
For those attending a more expensive private school or a public school as a non-resident out-of-state student, a program exists which may help to reimburse the difference. This program is called the “Yellow Ribbon Program”.(Click on the link for more information about the Yellow Ribbon Program, not everyone is eligible for the program).

A monthly housing allowance (MHA)

An annual books & supplies stipend

A one-time rural benefit payment"

vets can go to school for free:)
hope this helps
