Carlos Gonzalez has lived nearly all his 29 years in a country he considers home but now finds himself on the wrong side of the border - and the wrong side of a proposed overhaul of the U.S. immigration system that would grant legal status to millions of people.

1) The reality is you can't deport 11 million people, we need to find out what do with them. So lets be smart about it.
2) I work in construction maybe I even help built your house ...your welcome .
3) I will probably take space for another 50 to 60 years but you wount that's for shure.
Ok that's enough, we shure have different opinion on immigration, will see what happens.
Wrong on every level.
My family built the house my parents still live in, they legally immigrated from Ireland in 1842 and settled in what is now Austin in 1860. They built the house in 1863. Has running water and electricity now but no illegal alien labor. That is probably why it is still standing and will still be here in another 100 or more years. The house I live in was built in 1944 and I actually have the paperwork from the original owner when I bought it from him in 1988. Had inventory from the builder and listed all the craftmans who worked on the house from start to finish, not a hispanic name in the bunch and again, apart from some updating the house is solid as a rock and better quality that what is slapped together these days.
I am only 43 so easily have 50 or 60 more years in me too. Manuel Labor generally do not have very long lifespans as they have to work all their lives and are prone to accidents that shorten their lives even more.
11 million people can easily be deported if the will is there. It has been done before and should be done once again. Take away the welfare, jobs, and such that bring/keep them here and they will go home on their own anyways.

You have had a remarkable life. You are 43 years old and have already served 25 years in the military. Then four years of college, five years of medical school, two years as a foundation program trainee and then five or six years of specialty training as a psychiatrist.

Where do you find the time?

I think so too. Because if a person is illegal and no paper, it's really hard for them to get a welfare, and usually, even though they are legible for it, they too afraid to apply for it.

1. Criminals need to be punished and not rewarded for their crimes otherwise they continue with their crimes
2. No
3. I served my country for 25 years in the military and retired a full bird Colonel and currently work as a Psychiatrist in private practice.
So, what is you have done for this country? Taking up space does not count.
No wonder why you should have your mental status check. I bet you are dx under DSM IV common Axis II. You look like as one of my patient i.e. delusional and confabulates stories. Haldol and Zyprexia will really help you. Do I also have PTSD. Poor soul. I'll give you free sessions.
