The system is broken because the government does not keep these people out of the country in the first place. Secure the borders and we wont have these problems.

How was this illegal alien able to board a plane? You and I have to have proper identification to board a plane. Other articles have stated he has no drivers license, so what form of id did he use? Perhaps a matricula card? Or no id at all!! Once again our laws are set aside for an illegal alien. Today the senate will be voting on the Dream Act/Amnesty Bill, call your senator and let them know you DO NOT support Amnesty. Ask your senator to vote NO on this amnesty bill. Let them know we need our borders secured, our current immigration laws enforced, and E-verify mandatory. Tell them amnesty only encourages more illegal immigration. We gave amnesty in 1986, for what was to be approximately 2.4 million. When all was said and done over 4 million received amnesty. Since then there have been millions sneaking across our borders and over staying their visas just waiting for the next amnesty. It's time to stop this madness! I say No Amnesty- Not Again - Not Ever

The easy solution is the young man goes into the military the day after graduation.

The line needs to be drawn somewhere in this illegal immigration issue and it should be drawn with Bernard Pastor. I am sure the Hispanic lobby has the resources to resettle him and his family in their true homeland of Guatemala. In fact, his skills could be put to good use improving the lives of Guatamalans as a whole. The Dream Act is merely stealth amnesty one step at a time with the provisions for chain migration in it. I am sorry to see our federal agents cave on this one when a recent Rasmussen poll (Sept 2010) showed that most Ohioans favor an Arizona type law (74%).

Why haven't the senators who got involved been charged with aiding and abetting a criminal act? This person claims he does not know where his family was but was able to reach them by phone on his father's birthday and after being released. He probably doesn't have a drivers license and still drives. It happens every day in Columbus. He is a criminal, nothing more, nothing less. Send him back or open season on illegals.

Yes deport him and the rest of his family back. while were at it deportthe illegals and their ancor babies back to their countries!! an alternative would be if they were here for a time put them in the military and then ship them off on the next plane to afghanistan where they will be put on the front lines!! if the survive then mabey they can get green cards (not citisenship as they have given to some immigrants make em work fo rthat like the rest of the immigrants ahve to) and a chance at education. if they die then they died knowing what it was like to fight for america and not fight to be able to stay illegally in the us where they dont pay taxes and drain OUR tax dollars to pay fo rthem and their ancor babies!! if they refuse the service then deport them and their family back to thei rcountry even the ancor babies need to go!

Amazing that after 18 years in America that the father:
(A) is not fluent in English;
(B) failed to teach his own son Spanish, so that he could avoid communication issues if deported to his country of origin.

Article
"Pastor, who considers himself an American, speaks little Spanish.
-
"His father just gasped and said,'Thank God' in Spanish ...."

Greed has consequences!!

I'm tired of you right wingers complaining about the illegals from the left hand but in the mean time your hiring them from the right hand. This is the cause of the problem. If you didn't hire them they would not be here. Plain and simple. Lets put the Republican business owners in prison and confiscate and sell the property that they gained with the illegal profits they made from having these people come from other countries illegally to work for them. The employer does this so he can pay them less than minimum wage and no benefits. This enables the employer the ability to under cut bids and take away jobs from the contractors that are hiring Americans at the prevailing wages.

All they have to do is get converted to radical islam, they have no documentation in this country. A perfect delivery system for terrorism.. Our liberal asshat government will sit by and do nothing.

This is asshattery!!! The dems and phony ass repubs will face the music when we take up militia when and if this country collapses.. They better run like hell if this happens and its only a matter of time. If they pass this dream act, millions of illegal gangbanger, scumbags and drug dealers will get on welfare and unemployment.. We will have to fit the damn bill once again for these freeloading leaches.. All the while our government rapes us of more tax money.. BASTARDS!!!!

Obviously yours didn't come here the legal way, but mine sure did, and yes, I can provide documentation.

Do you comprehend the difference between colonization and immigration? There was a time when there were no borders or immigration laws. Therefore, there was no such thing as an illegal immigrant.

You need an education. Race baiting will not work. The LAW is not on your side.

The entire foundation of the USA is based upon the exploitation of Native American land and now that this exploitation is happening again, the white man is concerned because it's happening to them. Where was this concern at when they were the ones exploiting the land?

damn hypocrites.

Despite what was said in congress, illegal aliens can already gain citizenship through the military.

As long as they have not committed a disqualifying crime they can join the military and get on a path to citizenship.
