Fred Diego is sitting on a bench in the hot sunshine. It's a summer afternoon outside the Indiana Memorial Union, with students on their laptops, seeking shade and drinking Starbucks beverages.

"You literally live in this borderland, this very nebulous, very tumultuous place where your life is governed by uncertainty," Diego says. "But to most kids here, that wasn't an issue until they turned 16 and tried to get a job and realized they were undocumented.... Now at this point, we're 20 years old. In two years we're planning to graduate and we're going to want to get jobs."

You can always go back to the country you are a citizen of. You have a US degree now show us how smart you are. You should be light years ahead of anyone in your country. But the truth is you're not.

That's why you they want to stay here. Their countries are never going to improve on their own and these illegal alien students are not willing to go home and make improvements.

You know spy, when they say that they didn't know until they were teenagers that they we here illegally, I say that's a damn lie. When their own parents and Family members are laying low in the shadows and are afraid of LEO and the Border Patrol, come on, who do they think they're fooling? Growing up our parents always warned us about doing this and not doing that, I'm sure they were told too, they knew.. They also lie and say that they don't even speak the language of their native countries, then how did they communicate with their parents growing up? What was the first language they learned, as most of their parents still don't speak English to this day..? These guys are all about lying, cheating and fraud as along as it benefits them and their illegal cause on invasion..

Rather then an insult. I think you should be thanking him for fighting for the USA for ten years. That far more outweighs a spelling error in my opinion.

He has an opinion and it is a valid one at that. Read the article and then his situation. Spelled right out for all to understand what he wrote and what the article says.

You got that right. Damn illegals lie about everything. They also like to say they came here when they were infants and 99% of them didn't.

Spy, it's getting so bad here in Calif. that I went to a mall in Burbank, and walked up to a guy that was sweeping the floor and asked him where a certain store was located. He had no clue what I said and stated that he didn't speak English, so I walked up to a woman and asked her if she spoke English and she became indignant. When they say that they don't speak English, I always ask them why not? They just stand there looking dumb!!

What a crock of hooey this 'story' is. These kids know what they're doing is wrong.

That public Universities are allowed to admit *any* illegal, much less give them a full-ride scholarship is unconscionable. The people of IL should stand up and demand that their kids get a crack at these opportunities first.
