This would be a stretch, even if we had enough jobs - to give an illegal person such a desired job - but, to do it now, when there are so many Americans looking for work, makes me sick to my stomach. These are people that are not just looking for work, but people that have invested lots of time, hard work, and money into college to prepare for good jobs. Give me a break. I am a generous person, but this is too much. I really feel sick to my stomach about it.
If Erika Andiola did indeed enter the country illegally, as I have read on the web and then retained a coveted job working for a congresswoman, I feel compelled to voice my reaction. I feel ill. I feel it in my stomach. I know there are so many people that ARE legal citizens here in the US that need jobs right now. It is a kick in the face to all of them.

This Sinema birch is a pandering seditious POS. KISSING UP TO WETBAX IS A LOSING PROPOSITION. When the wetbax are finally thrown out of the US, AMERICANS WILL REMEMBER sinema's treason and she will find herself out of office. If the wetbax every get power, they will forgot her and replace her with a wetba ck. Either way, the birch loses!

Lets see, this girl came to the US as an 11 year old child- committing a "heinous crime" that is typically punished with a $50 civil fine (less of a "crime" than driving 20 mph over the speed limit).

She was an honors student in high school. Then she finished college.

Clearly, she's a dangerous threat to America.

Oh, wait. No she's not.

The laws that prevent an intelligent, well educated, hard working person from working are just stupid. Her talent is being wasted, and we are weaker as a nation because of it.

I doubt I'd agree with the Congress woman on much politically (I'm an extreme fiscal conservative Libertarian), but I don't have any problem with this hire.

Hell yea. Put DACA recipient's in the united States Government offices... Good idea. All of them. Sure let's see how well Mexicans can destroy this Country the way they did their own homeland and California... DACA recipient's are not Legal US Citizens and have no right's working in our State and Federal Government in any capacity. Brewer needs to take a hard look at this situation.

Apparently, they are allowed because she's already working.

This is a Federal position in DC on a Congressional staff, so Brewer can't do much about it but bitch and moan.

What are you talking about?

I said she committed a misdemeanor punishable by a small fine.

Sure, it's "illegal"- just as jaywalking and spitting on the sidewalk are illegal.

But it's a minor infraction, not "crime of the century" like some of these clowns make it out to be.

You put this so wonderfully, sometimes i have so much anger toward those in government in particular that forget what and whom they represent that i don't bother making a post as i know some of my words would be a little to harsh and full of bad thoughts that it's in better judgement that i don't post my feelings.

Well, here's the real problem, theres ten's of millions like her more or less so the issue is compounded by the shear number of illegals making this little infraction multiplied tens of millions times over thus making it a an overall large infraction.
Listening to the 6:00 news just now and a third Maryland county(Caroll County)has made ENGLISH the official language of the county this should be expected of any county in the U.S. with no-exceptions.

That's one area that needs to be addressed when they cobble their "reform". There should be far stiffer penalites associated with entering this country illegally.
