Everyone knows that Obama has been preventing any progress on immigration.

These stupid immagints should be voting GOP if they want to improve their lot in life.

oh goody.

another stupid article that says they are "undocumented" instead of "in the country illegally".

Roughly 6.1 million unauthorized Mexican immigrants were living in the U.S. last year, down from a peak of nearly 7 million in 2007.

I guess it's a good thing Obama has been preventing any progress on immigration. Since apparently the plan from previous administration was to get as many illegals here as possible.

Is it your contention that someone who has lived in America from 6 months old to adulthood, not culturally American?

How much culture do you expect children of young ages to get? Does it mystically come with the "mother's milk"? Or do you actually not care about the realities of the situation, and are stunningly, stupidly, fixated on the pure legalities of birthplace alone?

Okay, so these activists now think Obama can just sign an Executive Order to the effect that people eligible for citizenship under the unpassed DREAM Act are no longer to be deported as illegal immigrants and are willing to go on a hunger strike to make it so?

The same Dream Act that Romney has promised to veto if it crossed his desk after he became POTUS?

This is gonna get interesting.

Because they might not be.

It is illegal to enter the US without proper authorization. It is only illegal to maintain continued presence if you have already been told to leave, or left and returned. If your initial entry hasn't yet popped up on someone's radar (and dealt with) your continued presence is not illegal in and of itself.

Why should they have to GTFO if they've been here THEIR ENTIRE FARKING LIVES?!? This is their country as much as it is yours. The only difference is that you have a piece of paper, and they do not.

Please, show me how you are descended from the First Peoples. Please. I'd love to see how you belong here more than these people. People like you make me so angry because we are all descended from immigrants who more than likely did NOT come here "legally". But please, continue with the whargarble GTFO bullshiat because that makes you so much more of an American than these people.

You're avoiding the question, but I still got this. You sound like you live in Minnesota. This generation of immigrants has done its best to be as isolationist as possible. It's like living on an army base. Schools teach classes in Spanish (not ESL, not foreign language), stores, clubs, groceries, and churches with signs in Spanish with workers who greet you in Spanish and the long-standing taboo of associating with the other, the g-word, which you probably think is cute and funny, because you don't understand its meaning. I'm talking, basically, about Mexican neighborhoods that may as well be separate towns. If this is American culture, it's Mexican-American culture.

You just said "it's not illegal until you get caught" in about thirty words. You'd make a fine lawyer. If their immigration was illegal, they're illegal immigrants.

Ignoring your presumption that any immigrant lives in a ghetto, you're saying that ghettoization is a legitimate reason for deportation? Does this apply to Polish, Jewish, Italian, African-American, Puerto Rican, ad nauseum ghettos, or only to Hispanic ones?

Well, the DREAM Act is itself a slice of the Bush immigration plan, which was far more progressive than Obama's policing-oriented policies.

Somehow that's better than calling them "illegal people" - I always love that - it's against the law for them to be people.

/Anyways, "undocumented"/"in the country illegally" is like saying "tax dodger" instead of "illegally avoiding paying taxes"

I fail to see how issues like this got divided between party lines. Everything's so pathetically black and white. The immigration system should be reformed so people who are actually contributing (you know, like you and I don't) can make it into the country.

Do you think we really need an underclass of barely-paid cleaning, building and maintenance workers so the 1% can profit a little more? The people who hire and house these people are the real problem, but you never see them demonized by Republicans or even mentioned by Democrats.

THEY DIDN'T BREAK THE LAW. And in many cases, neither did their parents, who legally entered the country, made good-faith efforts to secure legal residency, but ended up getting screwed by the shady vultures that prey on immigrant communities. Look up the word "abogado" and how ambiguous it can be, and you'll see where people end up becoming "illegal" despite doing everything they can to obey the law.

And the contention that THIS generation of immigrants, unlike every other one, has no intention of integrating is a load of shiat. One look at a subway train in New York, where you'll see sign after sign advertising English lessons, shows that there's a huge amount of interest in integrating. Every group that comes over (including, likely, your ancestors, by the way) has a percentage that refuses to assimilate in the larger culture. Guess what? They eventually die off, marginalized, while the rest of the community finds ways to embrace American culture while still respecting their heritage.

The concept of holding people liable for the misdeeds of their ancestors is repellent enough that it was explicitly referenced in the Constitution (look up "treason not effecting a corruption of blood"). That some Americans suddenly think that we should hold people responsible for the misdeeds of their parents, when they themselves only wish to become full members of their communities, is a damn shame.
