They make it seem as though these "children" learned of their illegal status when they tried to get a driver's license or applied for college. They also make you think that the "children" don't know anything about the culture of their native land and that they don't speak the language.

The illegal aliens that I am aware of have children who know as young as six that they need "papers" This is something that is discussed continuously throughout their lives.

As far as the language is concerned, most of their parents don't speak English, so they are translators. Their home environment is completely immersed in their native culture, except for periodic moments when they are not watching the soaps on Unvision.

Come on. Tell it to someone who cares! You will do fine in your native country. After all, you have had the benefits of a free K-12 education, which should fair you quite well in your native country. Try it!!!

it is not the responsibility of america and americans to support foreigners. PERIOD.

if it is american money, it should be spent on americans. PURE and SIMPLE.

I don't give a rats as# if these foreigners could benefit from OUR money...they are not entitled to it.

My question is HOW AND WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED TO GO TO COLLEGE WHEN THEY ARE ILLEGAL??

They should be thankful we put them through high school!

Sorry, but she did not "grow up here just like any other American kid". She was raised here by illegal immigrant "parents" who made the decision to break our laws by living in America unlawfully.

Legal U.S. citizens also "want a chance to pursue their dreams" without having to pay for and/or put up with outlaw illegal immigrants and their children.

"Hilda works as a front desk clerk, not her dream job, but she has little to choose from."

I graduated from Montrose High, and then I started to go to Mesa State in Montrose, but it was too hard, because I had to work full-time and go to school. The only way to get money was to work.

Welcome to the reality of independent living in the 1st world Country that is America.

Now do yourself, and us, a favor by becoming a legal citizen by following the current rules, regulations, and laws that law abiding citizens (or citizens to be) must abide by.

Otherwise, quit complaining and go back to your country of origin.

Well, Hilda, the writing is on the wall now. Might wanna get your personal affairs settled and start packing, because the next 2 or more years are going to be a bit rough for you.

I agree.

I'd like to add that countless Americans and legal immigrants attend college while working part or full-time jobs. Some even have spouses and children and do just fine. Yes, it's difficult, but Americans do it - in our own country. I did it without freebies, while working full time most years, with children during ALL my university career, so Hilda's whining is absurd to me.

Boo Hoo, Hilda, get a large clue. You aren't special. In fact, if you can't cut working and going to school, you shouldn't attempt higher education. It isn't a RIGHT. It's something one pays for or earns through scholastic excellence. IMO, Hilda's whine merely means she wants it HER way and wants someone else to pay for her to have it HER way. "Hilda does volunteer work with the Hispanic Affairs Project, working on a phone bank to try and educate people about the DREAM Act, which she projects will pass one day." If she has time to volunteer, then she has time to work full time to pay for tuition and go to school.

Illegals and their children have no rights here to higher education and shouldn't have. Americans first. American children first. American college students first. Then come legal immigrants who have the right to apply for citizenship.

Illegal aliens don't enter the picture at all because they aren't ALLOWED to be here by law. By all the illegal whining, you'd think the rest of the world hasn't ever heard of higher education. Other countries have colleges. Illegals need to go to them. That's the legacy illegals give to their children by conscious choice. Shame on them, but that's the way it is.

I love this:

Yes, WORK, just like millions of American students.
Sorry, U.S. taxpayers don't owe you an education.

Last sentence of the article -- "...We are just like U.S. citizens."

Sorry, Honey. Being in America doesn't make you an American anymore than standing in your garage makes you a car.

You're a Mexican National like it or not. If you have a problem with that take it up with your ILLEGAL ALIEN parents. They made the decision that you have to live with.

By the way -- since you are aware of your illegal status have you registered with our government? We have a federal law that says all non-citizens (legal or illegal) over the age of 18 must register and carry proof of registration on their person at all times!

I'm willing to bet you haven't registered. If you haven't you have become an accomplice to the original federal crime of your parents.

Hilda, dear; Your Montrose HS education cost me and my kids. Get a job or go back to your real homeland. Colorado is BROKE from paying for illegals food, school, health. I am sick of it.
