I'm a successful entrepreneur but might get deported
CNNMoney ^ | May 29, 2012 | Jose Pagliery

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- It happens every time Celso Mireles, a tech consultant who runs a successful business in Phoenix, hops into his pickup truck and drives past a police car. His stomach turns. His chest tightens.

He could be deported any minute.Mexican-born Mireles, 25, is among nearly 2 million immigrants in the United States illegally who were brought here as children by their parents.

Without a path to residency or citizenship, these immigrants are prevented from getting regular jobs without lying or obtaining fake papers. Many are forced to become entrepreneurs. But increasingly hostile state laws have relegated these small businesses to the shadows, making it harder for them to prosper.

they are entrepreneurs, who I assume pay no taxes, drive without licenses and insurance, We're human. We have families. We contribute." To contribute, means laws have to be broken to succeed.

If he is illegal, it’s because he doesn’t care to do anything about it. Deport him and make room for a legal entrepreneur.

If Mr. Celso Mireles is so successful as a tech consultant, then he can choose to abide by the laws of the country in which he is making his money and get his citizenship properly. If not, he needs to go back to the cesspool he came from ....

An anglo tech should lose out so he can stay here and be successful at the anglo’s expense, it is only fair. The anglo can do manual labor but wait, no anglos need try for those jobs either.

This is all part of the “they just want to come here and work hard” meme. A liberal lie, just like Islam is the religion of peace and our strength is in our diversity. Live within the law like the rest of us do, or go back to Mexico!

Follow the rules and procedures for being here, and you don’t have to worry about pleading your case in the court of public opinion, morons!!!

“Without a path to citizenship”

That is a lie.

I'm a successful entrepreneur but refuse to allocate the good money I make, and devote the time necessary, to comply with the laws of the United States of America.

There, I corrected your title for spelling and grammar.

If he runs a succssful business, what about all of the endless bureaucratic paperwork that has to be backed up with endless documentation just to open a lemonade stand?

Wait, those rules are for suckers, taxpayers, citizens, and others who try to follow the ever-changing byzantine landscape of rules and regulations that justify 90% of the bureaucrats on the payroll.

Life can be tough when you are illegal. He needs to go have a long talk with Mom and Dad who brought him here.

So why can’t he go to Mexico and be a successful tech consultant in a country where he doesn’t have to worry about getting deported?

I'm sure they need his expertise and entrepreneurship back where ever he came from.

The Dream Act children compete with my children and grandchildren for success in school and work.

I am innocent of wrongdoing. The Dream Act kids parent (s)
are guilty of wrongdoing.

Why would my children be punished for doing nothing wrong by the Dream Act children who continue to do wrong by staying here and not regularizing their status?

DREAM ACT KIDS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR ALL THE BENEFITS, SCHOLARSHIPS AND REWARDS OF THEIR HOME COUNTRY.

Again, why should my children be punished by Dream Act kids who have alternatives.

I do have some sympathy for people in his situation. When you are a child you do what your parents tell you to do, legal or not. You grow up as an American, and deportation to some country you never knew would be absolutely terrifying.

Dream act also brings back the anchor baby law that was abolished in 1996.

If there is a way to have them stay is to give them an EARNED “J” visa as a student where the MUST RETURN back to the starting country where the parents are deported. Also they must be ineligible for student loans, grants, scholarships, and can not take the seats of LEGAL residents.

Illegal immigration is an ignored problem until a recession and depression hits the US. For years I had buddies who sort of not care because they can always get a job or quit and get a better job during the boom years. Some did not even see the harm of it because they were not affected by it. Others relish the low cost gardener, landscaper, nanny, etc etc etc. Some even fell for the MSM/liberal/Chamber of Commerce line, you don’t like illegals because they are not white! Now they are singing another tune when their job opportunities are on the line. When the US gets out of this recession/depression, our society will be a changed one.

I feel for the kids too. But one needs to step back and look at the big picture. Grant these kids amnesty and every illegal immigrant parent will come to America with their young children in tow knowing that eventually their kids will get amnesty. For the children is noble, but it can blind you from making the right decision.

In other words he is “some tech guy” who is taking the work of a legal resident or invetment immigrant.

If he is making that much money he can LEGALLY obtain an investor’s visa.

this CNN story is so full of lies that Obama could have personally written it.

hops into his pickup truck and drives past a police car.

He is NOT driving with a valid AZ driver's license, I can guarantee that. He probably is using a stolen ID.

As the open border crowd loves to brag, this guy is just here trying to earn a living and has committed no felony, only the minor breaking of the law by crossing the border without papers - WRONG!!!

In asking do you not think When you are a child you do what your parents tell you to do, legal or not. There is a reason why they are the parents and they are the kids. My Dads job required him to move, ever so often, I can use the same logic I had to do what my parents told me until age 18. I can also say, how unfair it is, my parents are not rich and I stuck living with middle class parents, I had to do what they said. If their parents using criminals acts, such as the parents pay the Mexican drug cartels smuggling of their kids to sneak across the border undetected.Is this not it’s self not a crime of child endangerment ? The kids had no say, but their parents did had a say and they decided to disregard the laws and bring their kids here anyway and they knew in advance what their kids would encounter later in life. Shouldn’t it be a crime to hire drug cartels to smuggle kids across the border ? It’s an handy excuse to say I had no say, I also had no say until 18. This is like saying any kids from any part of the world who can make it here,they will need to only say, I had no choice and they are free to stay forever.Whatever problems these kids have were created by their parents. It is their responsibility to fix their kids problems. We did not create the problems, the parents did.And their parents always get a free pass and are never held accountable for the position they put their kids in today. It’s up to the family to solve their personal family problems. We fulfiled our obligations by giving 12 years of free schools, untold millions of free school lunches, etc,etc,etc.Don’t you think it is very odd, how untold millions of children here illegally, always maintain, never knew I was illegal until I wanted a drivers license or college grant ? Their parents teach them how act and what to say, if any encounter with law enforcement arises, to suddenly indicate, oh i just found out after 18 years, i was here illegally ? Do you think it’s fair now thes ekids all grown up are using fake or stolen documents or will the kids, we had no choice and all shall be forgiven due the I had no choice ?

All of these “Dreamers” are really very fortunate Mexicans (or Guatamalans or whatever), rather than the very unfortunate Americans they take themselves to be.

They should have great advantages in returning to their home countries, and working or setting up a business from there, that their compatriots who weren’t smuggled into the US don’t have.

You grow up as an American, and deportation to some country you never knew would be absolutely terrifying.

Actually, you grow up as an illegal alien in the United States because illegal aliens aren't American citizens. And these illegal aliens have family members (siblings, parents, grandparents, cousins, uncles, aunts) back in their home country so it shouldn't be that terrifying for the illegal alien to have to go back there.
