Dear Readers:
My name is Jaime, I am writing this article on behalf of the many children that are born from parents that are undocumented. I would like to share my story, as it is just a little bit different but similar. My mother married an American citizen, at the time of marriage, my sister and I were already born from a previous marriage. My father past away when I was several months old. My stepfather married my mother several years later, my sister was 5 years old and I was 3 year old. At the time my stepfather was able to get my mother's citizenship in order, but my sister and I fell through that way side. But every time we crossed the border from Tijuana, Mexico as children we never encountered any problems and also being able to speak English helped. As I got older, I wanted to work and go to school. Well, without proper green card ( legal documentation) I was not able to get a job or play the sports that I wanted to, the reason was that I needed a social security. My last year in High School in 1989, my stepfather helped me with my citizenship. A year later when I received my Immigration and Naturalization Service number, I joined the armed forces in 1990 and I served as a Hospital Corpsman (medic) for 4 years active and 1 year reserve. I am a veteran of Desert Storm/Desert Shield. I am proud to say that I served my country proudly and honorably. I received many medals and certifications through the military. I would also mention that on behalf of all of those individuals that served and died, that they gave the ultimate sacrifice to serve this great nation to become United States citizens. It would be a shame that they be forgotten since they paid with their lives to be part of this great nation that we live in. After my military service, I attended Mt. Sac College in Walnut, CA receiving my Associate Degree in Liberal Arts, and then two years later from Cal State Polytechnic University with a Bachelors Degree in Biology. After that I took on line courses with the George Washington University towards my Masters. All of this was paid though the military (GI bill), my hard work and my taxes. I currently work as a medical professional and I help save lives. I hope that I can be a role model and serve as an advocate towards helping others through the Dream Act.
Good, now get leagal and welcome to the USA.

You are living proof that there is no need for the Dream Act. You managed to follow the law so why shouldn't everybody else?

The dream act is just act one of forgiveness for violating the borders of America.Give it to the children that had no choice ...Awww dont we feel sad for them.Then it will be forgivness to all the others soon to follow.24,000 anchor babies were born in the inland empire last year and most were delivered with social program funds.These kids are automatic Americans and will more than likely continue to live off the taxpayers tit.Com e on Havent we done enough....Lets balance our budget and fix our schools and roads before we let anymore illegals latch on to what we have worked so hard for...

By the way...Four dollars of American money is spent on illegals for every one dollar contributed by them.Imagine how well our schools would work if we stopped educating their kids.Imagine how we could fix our damaged roads and bridges and the hiway rest areas if they were all gone.Just spend some time in Arizona to see how much nicer it is there than here because they have scared most of their problems away.

I love the fact that mexico's illegal immigration policy actually calls for the death penalty for being there illegally, maybe we should start a hunting season like they do to the illegals in their country, This amnesty thing for children or themselves is bull. If you are here illegally and have a child then you should have to give the child up for adotion or take it home to where you came from. Many people came legally from all over the world, meaning they filed papers and waited for them to be approved and then came here. Maybe you should do the same thing. My neighborhood was clean and violence free untill the 8 familys of mexicans moved into one house and next thing you know there is violence, craziness, and drug dealing going on in the neighborhood. Not to mention the mess they made of the once beautiful house. There should be no discussions, just hangcuffs and deportation. Go back to your country and come back legally scumbags, oh and the constitution and bill or rights along with American protections only pertain to those of us who are American, you are not. I should not have to pay for you and your 100 kids, their housing, food, schooling, esl programs, and college. I am an American and had to pay for my college myself. Kick them out. stop with the bull

I am all for full blown amnesty. The more people the better. Only the strong survive. I think some of you bloggers forget about Idaho and Utah. If you don't like tacos and burritos California is no longer your cup of tea. You can't put the toothpaste back in the tube. Adios

The DREAM ACT, AMNESTY, and C I R (Comprehensive Immigration Reform), are identical. They are a conspiracy, designed by crafty politicians, fpr illegals, and supported by greedy, wealthy, unpatriotic Americans for their own political and financial gain.

THE DREAM ACT, AMNESTY, AND C I R would create a huge, expensive, new federal bureaucracy, as large as Obamacare, employing 500,000 new bilingual employees, and cost trillions of dollars. The census used 450,000.

The Mexican authors of the DREAM ACT, AMNESTY, and C I R want the border to be sealed during the very long process of designing and structuring the program, trapping 20,000,000 illegals inside the US of A . Meanwhile, the illegals would be propagating at a record pace, going from a minority to a plurality, to a majority. The illegals would be persuaded to come out of the shadows, recieve new federal I D cards, drivers' lisences, insurance, etc., at our cost. All city, county, and state laws against illegals would be cancelled. In their place, new federal laws, under Comprehensive Immigration Reform would take effect.

The illegals would then be free to roam anywhere, permanently, including your home town, in search of work, protected by federal anti-discrimination laws. They could legally attach your job, or jobs next to you, to get work to pay their fines, which is the first condition of Comprehensive Immigration Reform
