    Big knews "schemer" . The Dream Act will never pass. As you read, upwards of 70% of Americans are against it. Who cares if Carlos is reading this. Americans now know that it is "scheme". Obama has not passed it because it will ruin him politically. Also big news. He has let it known what he thinks of the Dream Act, so Americans will let him know what they think of it in 2012. CAN YOU SAY SCHALLACKING????

    Oh...the old the system is broke argument. It is not broke. Immigration laws have not been enforced. We have federal laws pertaining to illegal immigration and in-state tuition. IT IS TIME TO ENFORCE THEM. If we don't enforce the problem will never go away, in fact it will expand. The border is not secure. Don't tell me I am ignorant. If you would take the blinders off and read you would see that No other country would put up with this. Now you can move on to the racist/bigot argument which does not fly either. Ask yourself what laws are Americans allowed to break and not be prosecuted. If we do not pay our taxes we are hauled into court and prosecuted. AMERICANS ARE THE ONES BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST IN THE WORKFORCE AND EDUCATION. What no more tirades? I don't read them anyhow.

    By the way folks, Emigrated is not the proper terminology. Carlos Santana entered the US illegally. He has since been able to become a citizen of the US.

    J: Many of us are well aware of just how many are hopping the border everyday, destroying our landscape as they do. Leaving behind their trash and destroying our national parks on the southern border. The illegals entering this country is costing us TOO MUCH TOO BAD IF YOU PERCIEVE OUR SELF PRESERVATION AS A COUNTRY AS RACISM. WE WILL NOT JUST LET ILLEGALS WALK OVER US.

    J:American citizenship is difficult to get for a reason, just as it is difficult in other countries in Europe. The reason is that the citizen taxpayers should not be obligated to SUPPORT OR HAND OVER THEIR JOBS TO THE ILLEGALS. We are a nation of laws and we have a major problem with our souther border being unsecured. Our military is fighting everyday to secure this country and our border is unsecured. Americans, some right now do not even have $50.00 coming in. Illegals are in this country stealing jobs in many arenas. AGAIN THE RACIST THING. I AM SURE YOU ARE BEIGN ADVISED BY LA RAZA. WHY SHOULD OUR SECURITY BE TAKEN AWAY. WHY SHOULD OUR HOSPITALS BE UNAVAILABLE TO US TO USE AS A RESULT OF THE ILLEGALS BANKRUPTING THEM. Take the educations we have so gracially paid for you and GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY AND MAKE IT BETTER, DON'T CONTINUE TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY. THE WHOLE WORLD CANNOT JUST CLAIM WHAT IS NOT THEIRS TO CLAIM.

    dana: i kno we did win i wasn't talkin bout that...i was talkin bout the fact that u don't have any sympathy at all for the illegals that r here. all i'm saying is that this country should help them out a little instead of just sending them to a place that they're not even familiar with! i also dont kno why ur saying if i'm in this country illegally? b/c i'm white n i was born here!
