  •  This is why the immigration discussion (0+ / 0-)

    needs to begin. People like me, read this story, and we shake our heads because 11 years ago, already the two knew this was illegal. And yet no green card was ever filed for him. It doesn't take high priced lawyers or anything else to do something this simple. If you can get 75 supporters to try to stop a bus, you can get the money for the paperwork filing and classes required to attain citizenship.

    On the other hand, immigration laws are completely and utterly stupid the way they are currently. We are a nation of immigrants, and as such, unless you're a criminal, why are we making it so hard for them to jump through hoops to come into our country seeking to better their lives as our forefathers did?

    Just my two cents worth.

    It is every person's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what they takes out of it. - Albert Einstein (edited for modern times to include everyone by me!)
