Is this another one of those "Affirmative Action" things I've been reading so much about?

Where's my $45,000 refund? I've been paying "Out of State" tuition for three years now!

At least you have the honesty to recognize how Americans have benefitted form the "illegal" labor (rrofing, construction, lawn service, tree service, nanny, hotel maids, vegetable and fruit pickers, etc, etc, etc). Now it is time to recognize how much those "illegals" have subsidized your lifestyle and have saved you MONEY. Shame on those who now cry foul for them not paying taxes while reaping the fruits of their almost slave labor.
I and all immigrants citizens of the U.S. will vote for anyone who would recognize the contribution of immigrants to this country.

You calling all immigrants "mexicans" only shows your ignorance and shortsightedness, so proper of a redneck bigot.

The federal government is not going to do one thing to the illegals because our economy would fail if they did. Large corporations rely heavily on cheap labor i.e. hispanics (illegal or otherwise) and these big corporations have the largest lobby groups - check out K street lobby and others. It's a pickle for the republicans because they can't bite the hand that feeds them!!

Don't you live here? Mine's finishing up & because of HOPE, I've paid about nothing. Thanks for playing the Lotto. Thank gawd when Sonny & Zell were trying to run things back in the day (as Republicans in Democrats' sheep clothing{All bow down to the "religious" right or is it wrong{?}}), they weren't successful.
