Life probably sucks for Americans living in Mexico without legal identification too. This is nothing new, and universal worldwide.

"Ordonez, who was born in Oaxaca and came to the United States illegally years ago, is not included in Mexico's birth registry. She thinks her parents did not register her, and she did not solve the problem while she lived in her home country."

She could have tried to rectify her situation whil living in her homeland, but just let it slide. Now all we will get from her is the usual "oh, woe is me." By choosing to do nothing, she limited her prospects. Will she accept responsibolity for her actions of lack of them?

since when did these border jumpers need id's

free medical
free food aid
free housing aid
free financial aid

millions of her kind get it all with no ID, they just have to whisper 'undocumented' in any sanctuary state like calif or NM and get the world handed to her.

And as a plus, in NM she can get a drivers license and look 'legal' for about $20.00 courtesy of the NM Govt.
.
so what has she got to whine about ?

if you go further than 30km from the US border into mexico you better have their immigration/visitor paperwork. If you travel by car, bus, train etc. as a gringo you WILL be stopped and your status checked. Don't have the proper paperwork you will go to cockroach central jail and you won't get out till you or your relatives buy your way out. Mexico has some of the strictest immigration policies around.

Right on. Mexico demands that we treat their ILLEGAL ALIENS here in ways they refuse to treat our ILLEGAL ALIENS there.

Gosh, I feel so badly for them. It seems they can't take care of their business anywhere. Life, it seems is just too complicated when you have *zero* initiative.

Sounds like a good plot for a movie. You know, like that one about a guy who got stuck in an airport and couldn't leave.

It always seems to be the liberal "poor me" syndrome...in a desperate plea for sympathy...

Get ready for four more years of this B.S.. At any time between now and the elections watch for Mitt Romney to suddenly roll over and play dead. Just like McCain did in 2008. Something stinks in Washington D.C. The fix is in. One way or another,Obama is going to win. We were sold out by both parties!!!

I think you are right! We are all pretty fed up with the BS we are fed! It boils down to once again where we have to choose who we think is a Lesser Evil. I think we are all getting tired of the choices we are forced to live with! I agree that it seems Mitt is a Flip Flopper Kinda like McAine. Any thing to apease the Voter! All while Obama is sucking up to Illegals to bolster his Voter base!

Seems already that Romney is already doing this. No teeth in his ads as of late!

I dated a woman who brokered their mortgages.

When I asked her how you lend six figures plus to someone without a SS #, she politely called me a racist.

I'd like to call her to see how many of them went bad. The results may be surprising. Often times those houses are occupied by dozens and the guy who holds the mortgage charges exorbitant rent to his fellow crimmigrants so the bank gets paid on time every month.

They can't.

Our State Dept. is one of our most f'd up govt agencies. It's a big reason we are disliked in many countries.

They give visas to terrorists before honest people, and don't give out nearly enough to meet America's demand.

Ambassadorships are handed out based on political contributions.

Affirmative action has dumbed down all of America, but the fed govt and DepState are particularly hard hit by it.

What you say is true.

Every newly elected President is, at least, as bad the last. The result is predictably the same; a loss of freedoms and rights for the average non-public assistance/sector funded working class.

Presidential campaigns during the last 30 years have been nothing but a well staged drama presented by the main stream media complex. The "winners" and "losers" have been cast to act in these staged dramas long before the play starts.

Meanwhile, our insidiously parasitic government continues to grant itself ever greater power and control over those of us who fund it (i.e. the non-public assistance/sector funded income tax payers).

The phrase "Of the People, by the People, for the People" has been corrupted to "Of the People, by the People, for the Government".
