It's a crime to aid illegals. Why isn't the law enforced?

A Mexican citizen is a Mexican citizen, when did the become American citizens by whos decree ? Did the people grant AMNESTY ? NO we didn't, have our lawmakers set themselves above the LAW YES they have. Time to stop our lawmakers from not obeying the laws. American citizens are entitled to benefits, if Mexican citizens or other foreign nationals citizens want benefits then their countries should provide them , NOT USA TAXPAYERS.

States can learn a lot from CA. If you want to F - - k up your state, counties and cities just let Illegals take over. Why is anyone living in this lawless hell hole state that is not Illegal.

This is crazy. I have always refused to live in CA because of the loony left and the confiscatory taxes. I really hope the few decent people left out there can reclaim the state.

Diego will be deported eventually. He even cheated the state by lying about his residence to get into a better school. One not filled with illegals.

What does it offer the American young who will now not be able to go to college because their spot was filled by an illegal alien? What about the young American from California who just saw tuition increase by 20%?

It's simply mind boggling how illegals lie, cheat and steal, then try to convince us of how good and decent they are!

Well gee, if this Diego is so outstanding, I'm sure he would be an asset to his home country of Mexico.

What a crock of sh*t reporting this is. This writer's sob story just created a new river in LA. Gimme a break!

Unfortunately, the few decent people left are too far outnumbered by the kumbaya, tree-hugging, illegal-alien-loving Californians. The CA Legislature (majority Democrat) REFUSES to listen to them. They have no recourse but to flee the state.

I did. In 2006. AND I HAVE NEVER REGRETTED IT, ESPECIALLY AS I WATCH CA JUST GO DOWN THE DRAIN, MONTH AFTER MONTH.

The problem is the ones who want to leave can't, because they can't sell their homes in this depressed market. I feel so bad for them. I was EXTREMELY LUCKY that I was able to sell my home in just 2 months.

I lived in Southern CA since the mid-1980s. It was beautiful then. By 2000, it was a sh*thole of Latino gangs, grafitti, drive-by shootings, drugs, rape & murder, car thefts, home burglaries, AND RETAIL BUSINESSES WHOSE EMPLOYEES ONLY SPOKE SPANISH.

I kid you not. It has changed for the worse, maybe permanently, with the help of pro-illegal alien laws being passed by its Democratic legislature, hungry for votes.

CA is BEYOND THE POINT OF NO RETURN. The rest of us 49 should take heed and use the "CA Experiment" as a dire warning. WE 49 NEED TO SAY "NO" TO ANY PRACTICE, BILL, OR POLICY THAT REWARDS ILLEGAL PRESENCE. Call your reps. There is only 2 choices: EITHER STAND UP AND BE HEARD OR LEARN SPANISH. It's your choice.

It sure is.

They are masters at playing "the victim," tutored and encouraged by Democrats, who need Latino votes. However, I think Latinos are starting to realize that they are being used by Dems with false promises, and therefore those votes may not appear in Nov 2012.

Even Obama -- the "Supreme Democrat" -- couldn't promise the DREAMers, who attended the latest La Raza event, amnesty. They even asked him to grant them amnesty thru Executive Order, and he said he couldn't do that. Yet, didn't Obummer pledge in his presidential campaign to get CIR passed in his first year of presidency?

Hmmmmmm. Methinks Obummer fooled them in 2008. I can't wait to see if he can fool them again in 2012. LOL!!

I lived and worked in NC back in 1999. It thoroughly ticked me off when I was told that my Hispanic co workers did not have to pay taxes. The way I see it...if they are gonna work here, live here, see doctors here, and send their children to school here, then they should have to pay taxes like the rest of us HERE! Better yet, they can take their freeloading, illegal, non English speaking, pity party back across the boarder!

The corruption of the religious, political and economic institutions of Mexico have created a class of citizenary that is used to being controlled by their Government, yet remain dependant on it for basic survival. It then is no wonder that when they discover ANOTHER Government that will provide for them better then the Mexican Government, they will gravitate toward the new Government. And it's a double win when the new Government actually caters to their needs without demanding anything in return.

Mexico bankrupted most of its citizens, and then encouraged them to go elsewhere so the Mexican Government would no longer have to be responsible for them.

Look to the bigger picture: the whole race issue is a convenient "sideshow" to keep the scrutiny away from the Mexican Government and the rampant corruption that has infested that country and rendered the population nothing more than international economic pawns.

. We'll said! Here is the biggest problem in just about every state, county and city. Employeers in most mfg, Rest, Blue collar and service business Co's and Corp's have jumped on the " F __ck the Fed and state Taxes and other Fees, I will hire an Illegal" bandwagon. Here in MD it is like the Disneyland For Illegals. They are pretty much now doing everything in the fields I mentioned. Pretty Pathetic, employeers are going to Bankrupt the US and send us into a second Great Depression. MD will be become another CA in five years or less. The Black's in our state are crying because the Illegals have taken over the cities basketball courts and section 8, HUD housing developments. " Hope And Change". We have to end this madness in 2012.

If California would like to create a real dream act it would be getting more industry into the state so more people could be working and start removing illegal aliens, I'm afraid that California as well as the rest of the nation the citizens are getting fed up with job outsourcing to Communist China, Americans loosing their homes to the banking cartels and our endless wars !

My GF bailed for the same reasons. She left in 2006 and hasn't looked back. It's sad, really.

It's a damn good thing the motion picture industry is located in California because they are about to get ready to film the re-make of "Lord of the Flies" using the Democratic State Legislators.
