They sound like a group custom-built and poll-tested to appeal to Republicans: hardworking youngsters with a powerful attachment to America, upright habits and a thirst to join the Army or enroll at State U. But the potential beneficiaries of the Dream Act are getting no love from the GOP.

Whether our constitution is secular or not...We are still a christian nation as per majority....

Mitt Romney was born in Michigan. Last I checked, that state is in the United States. That would make him American. All of his ancestors retained their U.S. Citizenship, even while living in Mexico.

Debatable a hell....and by the time the nation had evolved to writing the constitution, NONE of them were Crazy Reich-wing Christo-nazis. And they were sane enough to specifically write a secular constitution wwith none of the CRAP about a ;Christian nation' or 'under god' mythology. Hell they didn't even mention a 'god.'

Sorry, The American Dream is meant for Americans, not illegal interlopers. I am sorry that they are in a precarious position, but that position was a direct result of their parents' actions. They can take it up with them.
I hear this blame that parent argument quite often, but it makes no sense. If the parents are even still alive they are in no position to correct the situation for their now grown children. Why blame someone who can't do anything about it? Blame the GOP for their continued opposition as they are in a position to cerrect what was once a wrong. These kids (now adults) had no say in coming here. I also hear the argument about leaving at 18, but there is no such requirement to do so. Doing so would say I know I'm not guilty of anything, but I will leave and accept a 10 year ban for something I never did.
Again blaming the parent if they are still alive will fox nothing. Therefore the blame falls on those who could have done something but chose not to. Even when there was a democratic super majority in congress, SOME republican help was still needed. As usual the party of no did not help and that inaction is already leading to their demise.

Boo hoo. Citizen children are punished for their parents when their parents break laws. Do you think they like being away from their parent when he/she is in jail/prison for their law breaking? Nope. It's a form of punishment. Illegal aliens are no better. Once they realize they are breaking the law (and many realize it when they are on their way here), they are under an obligation to right the wrong. Not doing so makes them complicit in the crime. The minute they WORK, they are committing their own crimes, as working without authorization is a crime.

ALL illegal aliens need to go home. They are not needed or wanted here!

Yeah, your dream is someday waking up and finally having a post op [email protected] in between your legs, you crossdressing spinster with the flapping dangly strap-on!

You wouldn't last two seconds at a klan rally, Gzeeno! They'd have you lynched faster than flies on dung. So desist with the correlations of justified and rightful Black causes with that of the illegal alien problem. That White nationalist analogies are not gonna cut it with the sensible general public.

Remember, aside from ninnies like you that constantly pull Reagan out of their rump, to justify their paper thin declarations of conservatism, it was none other that your old Abe Lincoln that used executive powers to create, and some camps force, the Emancipation Proclamation that served as a basis for the 14th amendment that numBnuts like you point the finger at as the cause for the due process rights of the illegal aliens you relentlessly despise. Your conservative mantra is marred with nothing else but contradictions, so put yourself in check and quit being the continual virtual nimrod that makes trolls look like saints.

If you knew his ancestor's trade coat Mormon past, you'd see that his folks were running back and forth between borders to avoid conflicts. On the US end, fleeing US justice due to their polygamist ways, and on the other, recruitment into the Mexican revolution.

While I feel for the (mostly) Latino kids, I hope the Repukes opposition remains front and center. Maybe Romney can get his Latino support down to 10%. That would make the President's reelection damn near assured.
I wouldn't be so fast to paint this thing with such a broad brush. There are plenty of legal immigrants that are also tired of illegals taking their jobs and driving their wages down. There are also alot of Americans that will abandon Romney if he starts talking amnesty. The way I see it he can only gain by taking the side of the American people. Sure, this guy Mike Chapman wrote a real sappy one sided defense for the illegal aliens. He's no better than the politicians that let our laws go unenforced for so long we now have big problems. The way to fix our current situation is to start enforcing our laws. It's up to the voters to weed out the illegal alien supporters.

Mitt Romney's great grandparents left the U.S. due to their polygamy and they never came back here. They DIED in Mexico. WTF are you talking about?

Mitt Romney's grandparents, who were brought to Mexico as CHILDREN, came back to the U.S., after giving birth to Mitt Romney's father, George. They brought George to the U.S. when he was a child due to the revolution.

Mitt Romney's grandparents never practiced polygamy, nor did his father, George.

Obozo has polygamy in his background, too. Anything you want to say about that?
