and they continue to demand. This is truly an insult to those who pay/paid dearly into the system to the point of no return as the bad economy continue to hit us for more and more taxes.fees. Covering the massive amt. of illegals added into the entitlement programs due to the influx into Sanctuary Cities each and everyday/month; is killing us.

The more you give a spoiled child the more they demand. They will be given what they want, paid for by others, as long as they continue to vote for the correct politicians.
Signing petitions is meaningless. The petition in question is in the voting booth...soemthing so many in America are too lazy to go to on election day

As long as we have do-nothings in our governement, these illegals will continue to DEMAND what they have NO Right To. Man, just thank God that you can even be in a country as great as our United States. If you first earn something, then you are entitled to it, but until you do something to earn it, it is not yours and you have NO RIGHT to do anything but demand that we let you go back to your own country.

I would just let'em sit there till they're rear ends blistered and they starved themselves, we need to start ignoring they're childish behavior....and go about our daily business like we don't see them sprawled about. Sooner or later they'll wear themselves out and feel stupid and go back to MEJICO. They're already here probably on the deferred action thing BUT THEY WANT WANT WANT MORE! they are despicable.

these folks come off as if they have a right,could it be our gov told them this and theirs did the same.

for some reason nothing is being done even when these folks are in the open making demands. what seems an easy arrest that goes over looked just like the church rat who was on tv and working for the church she was staying in. that pastor was never charged with his crimes either.

i grew up around this area, this little town is home to the univeristy of michigan, basically a collage town that standard kids from normal backgrounds cant attent becuase of the cost. MOst of this students come from privileged backgrounds and never worked a day in their life. Hence they really dont care about your legal staus is, because they have been brainwashed .The school has been voted several times to have some of the most liberal teachers as well.

Nonsense.

Michigan is NOT an expensive school.

Sure, it's more expensive than the average State school as it is the most expensive State school in Michigan, but it's costs (yearly tuition and fees at around $13k: http://wayne.edu/facts/costs/annual-tuition.p... ) are nothing compared to elite private schools, where costs routinely run over $30k per year and can be in excess of $50k per year.

BTW, plenty of "standard kids" go to the University of Michigan and schools that are far better. Some "standard kids" work their asses off and get scholarships that will cover most, or all, of the tuition and fees to elite schools (or less than elite schools like Michigan).

i wrote based on what i know, your facts link is not on the mark. Certainly i know its not the most expensive school , i never said it was, but its cost and admissions policy filter out most of the students within the state of michigan. Blue color auto workers kids are few and far between at the school. Having known a few of these kids first hand, one in a group of twenty or so was from the metro detroit area, a burb in oakland county, not a cheap burb and certainly not in the range of a autoworker. Secondly you seem to forget the schools admission policy does consider race when going over application, its not a major factor but a factor none the less cleared by the courts allowing them to "create a diverse learning experience".

Lets be brutally real here: How many auto worker offspring are gonna have the brains to attend Michigan?

And I don't bring this up in arrogance...it's not like I myself had the grades or SAT score to get into Michigan. But, with rare exception, usually the apple doesn't fall far from the tree academic intelligence-wise, and blue-collar auto workers aren't typically a bunch of Michigan-level grads.

that was my whole point to the other post, that and money , because living in the state for a few years,i heard all the stories on the news on way "this 4.0 student" dint make the cut. Well its simple unless you were the next pro something or other,your chances of getting into the schhol were very low. Except of course, for family of alumni, who with degrees from the school usually went on to make much more than the average worker.

They don't pay for college. Who the hell are they protesting for. Every single one of those arrogant leeches get grant's and free scholarships and help from our Government. Why should we have to cradle these idiot's in the first place. I never see other immigrant's out protesting in our Street's, just wetback's. I wonder why? They already got tossed out of their own Country and if these leeches tried this in Mexihell, they be strung up on a freeway or sitting in their Cartel run jails.
