Does not matter and I follow the rules
Nobody deserves anything when they come in not respecting our laws and the people of this country. How can one say he/she follows the rules when one is in this country without permission? I am curious as to wha rules you follow. Do you work? How, it is with fake or stolen documents? How do you get to your job, witha fake license or no license at all? How about driver's insuance...do you have that? Exactly what rules do you follow? There is no such thing as a law-abiding illegal.

Excuses me?

Do I work?. No I retired in my 30s
I have a drivers license in my name from both Mexico and California.
I keep full coverage insurance on my cars, boats and Motorcycles with Mariners insurance out of San Diego

Correct a criminal invader is not following the rules

You might want to see where I am posting from...

I am an American
I have zero Latin blood in my family
I immigrated to Mexico for a number of reasons including that I did not want my children to be brainwashed in the far left coast schools of California

I was simply making a point that I am a immigrant but I followed the rules

when you found out you werent legal, you should have started proper paper work. But you thought you's scam the U.S. right?
You keep saying things like this again and again, but each time it is pointed out to you that there is no way to "start proper paperwork". That is the whole point of the debate. In most cases there is no way to legalize status for people who entered the country without a visa. None.

Why do you keep saying these things if they are incorrect? Do you really not understand the subject or are you willfully dishonest?

Don't forget to apologize to Juan and let him know that you did not understand how any of this works.

Why is it impossible to start the paper work? It is only that he doesn't want to spend the money. Juan never answers..........

Why? Because it not exist. Do you understand anything about the immigration debate? Anything at all?

I remember a couple of weeks ago you were demanding to know why the kids at the border had not applied for citizenship. That is hilarious. You are the gift the keeps on giving.

He chose to stay, instead of leaving and applying for Citizenship. He neglected to try. After 18 much harder and he's at fault. Don't tell me I don't know what I'm saying, cause I do. You don't. You are just an illegal alien lover.

That's good news. You have solved the problem all by yourself. Here we thought there were large numbers of kids who were taking advantage of a 2008 law, but not you tell us this is not the case at all and everybody can be easily deported. Good for you.

I hope you are contacting the appropriate agencies and letting them know the information they received previously was incorrect and in the future they should just run it by you first.

No , the problem is solved when we hear all ILLEGAL ALIENS are sent to Ca. If Obama won't deport them, they belong with the fruits and nuts.

N.S. what about federal and state income tax and social security payments? Any property taxes?
