<quoted text>True, but making things right is within her capability. Why should the government make things right for her? Why do illegls always expect to be handed the gift of citizenship, while doing nothing more than demanding it because their parents broke our laws?
and how would she make it right? must she now go to a land where she is a complete stranger and would be discriminated against? this is her land.

if she is illegally in the country she is committing fraud if she is working,thats a felony for starters.then to some that is ok as long as it is not their id being stolen and used.

maybe all the supporters of illegal aliens need their id stolen and used after all whatever an illegal aliens does here their supporters are ok with it or they would not support them in any way.

siding with illegal aliens is a fail and shows support for all crime.

ok, so if she has actually broken a law then prosecute her but don't just spew out generalizations and implications without quoting the law you claim is being broken.
my question was in reference to the claim/inference that she is breaking the law everyday that she is here.
i see that your response did not answer my question.

all in this country illegally has and keeps breaking laws,a person would have to have their head up their rear not to see it.

hence the word illegal aliens nothing else needs to be said there is no reason to help them no excuses for them,they are a mere problem that needs to be removed. who should a country stand for ,their own citizens or criminals who have no right to be here.

feeling on this need to be left out,we need to be hard and harsh on this issue punishment is the only answer.

since she is not guilty of breaking any law when she was brought here then just exactly what law is she breaking by being here? your opinion is noted but our legal system is not always based on logic so once again i ask you, what specific law is she breaking by staying here and trying to resolve her situation?

obviously, i guess we will all have to acknowledge that you really don't know of any law that she is breaking by remaining here.

you made the claim but can't prove it; interesting.

she is already a citizen of her home country she was two when she got here . she would be accepted there she is a foreign national .Her skin color would fit right in and i bet she speaks Spanish . She does not have to tell them she got kicked out of america . That they might feel sorry for her .but be jealous she got 23 years here.

she does not speak the same spanish. she does not eat the same foods nor dress the same. and as a product of eating American foods, going to American schools and living in an American city she would definitely look different. she would be very culturally ignorant.
however your biggest misperception comes from your lack of experience with latin american culture. she would not be accepted. she would be a target for kidnapping as her extended family here in America would be perceived as rich and expected to pay. if she had a good lawyer she wins and stays.

so, i'll wait for the law that says that by staying here she commits fraud. but i won't hold my breath.
then i'll wait for the law in Pa. that says that if she is working she is committing a felony. maybe there is such a law but as a pa native, i don't know of one.
then i guess i'll wait for you to prove that she is using a stolen id. i won't hold my breath on that one either.
how about sticking to the facts. she is illegal, she is undocumented but what is her crime?
