We are, the illegal alien at Stanford.
If you read the story his parents brought him here and then overstayed their work visa. His parents too made themselves criminals by deciding to stay.
He claims to have the deferred action status but bottom line he is an illegal alien and by his own admission fears apprehension and deportation, less so now than before he states.
ok,
first you misled me by saying this;
"Since he admited in earlier post to illegally entering the country at age 14 he knowingly made himself a criminal with at least that one act."
he came here when he was 3.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/...
he was brought by his parents. he, himself has not broken any laws. he is an innocent accessory to what ever his parents can be charged with. so that alone does not make him a criminal.

second, the law that you posted says this:
Improper time or place; civil penalties
b] Any alien who is apprehended while entering (or attempting to enter) the United States at a time or place other than as
designated by immigration officers shall be subject to a civil
penalty of -
(1) at least $50 and not more than $250 for each such entry (or attempted entry); or
(2) twice the amount specified in paragraph (1) in the case of an alien who has been previously subject to a civil penalty under this subsection.

did you ever wonder why it is very rare for a first time illegal to ever be charged as a criminal?
it might be because it is viewed as a civil offense and it might be that they would have a hard time proving that he qualifies as a criminal and it might be that they don't want to open that can of worms by trying it.

so, let's agree that legally he is not a criminal.

What you are is a criminal whose first act in the United States was to show your contempt for our laws. And now you are in Stanford taking the rightful place of a U.S. citizen or a legal immigrant? And I should have sympathy for you? Not a chance. I hope that you are arrested and deported back to our own pigsty country.
Provided that you were accepted to Stanford strictly on the basis of merit and achievement and not given preferential treatment for race or some other non-academic BS (as Michelle Obama did Princeton) then you are smart enough to return to wherever you can from and apply yourself to improving the country.
Get out of the country, play by the rules and apply for entrance to the USA legally as hundreds of thousands of other people do. You are not special. You are a scumbag.
that's kind of funny that you are making these comments from argentina. i have family in argentina.

Look smarty pants, no one stole anything from any body, they let them control this land just like the real Mexican allowed the Spaniards to control their land..Don't blame anyone else but yourselves.

Considering roughly 80% of those of hispanic ethnicity are white race with the most of the remainder being black I would say your assessment is correct. The small fraction of pure indian left in central and south America is as small as in north America as most have been bred out by the whites and blacks.

Yes, that's my LOL part of the Mexican culture! The REAL natives of Mexico are dark brown. Mexicans are a combo of European Spanish, Native, and oh boy do they hate this one...a little black! They have little regard for their darker skinned brothern, but they tout their "brown" skin in America to prove they are being singled out and discriminated against! Yet, in Mexico, only he white Mexicans move up the success chain. I look at the Mexican legislature, and don't see one brown, not even tanned Mexican, ALL WHITE Mexicans!!!
Just google it, Native Mexican they look a bit different than the ones we see around here, dress up differently.

Oh, my I hope this isn't true...lol.

Here in the northern part of the country, the indigenous people were here and we have cities and counties with names like, Shakopee, Dakota, Souix Falls etc. Down in Mexico, they had names like San Diego, Los Angeles. But as e know, the greedy white man took part of Mexico from them. Now, are you saying the names I mentioned are German?
They are Spanish names. I don't know what the Native American called the place before your ancestors, the Spanish, took over.

The Spanish raped your land you dumb ass, they took away your language, your religion, your woman and gave you their last names.

BTW there is more Mexicans on food stamps per capita than just anybody else... fact

Typical bleeding heart liberal. Let's give give to the illegals, while vilifying LEGAL Immigrants and US CITIZENS.
Actually, I'm a libertarian conservative, Army veteran, and business owner who never votes Democrat.

I'm also an engineering professional who thinks the USA is made stronger when we invite the best and brightest from around the world to be part of this country. Turning away brilliant people doesn't make the USA stronger (though it does make our competitors stronger).

Not everyone who doesn't believe exactly as you do is a "God Damned Liberal."

<quoted text>The thing with the libertarian is he's totally in it for himself. He has no loyalty toward this country or its laws. If you read his posts it's easy to see he is predisposed toward hiring foreigners ahead of Americans. Honor, loyalty, integrity and patriotism are foreign concepts to people like this.
To the contrary, I obey the law scrupulously.

I know what the law says, and I know what I need to do to get the job done well for a good price and still stay within the law, just as millions of other Americans do when they hire people who hire people who may or may not be illegal.

BTW, I served 30+ years in the US Army. How long did you serve, Mr. "Patriot"?

Wait, wait, don't tell me, you never did a damned thing for your country other than bitch and moan...

Go home to the country you are a citizen of. You have a US college degree if you are truly that smart you should be able to rise to the top. Or did you finish at the bottom of your class?
Even someone at the bottom of his class from Stanford is still miles ahead of most college grads.

However, given the programs he is participating in, it is clear to those of us who know engineering that this kid ain't at the bottom of his class. He is likely near the top of his class.
