This girl is exactly the kind of American immigrant we want. She works hard, believes in higher education, put herself through school without asking for handouts, and considered it important enough to commute 4 hours a day.

There are different situations for illegals. This girl was 2 when she was brought here illegally. She didn't make the decision, nor could she do anything about it. She did the best she could, with the situation she had. Her actions indicate to me that she understands American values. Why should we punish someone like this? She has done all the right things.

I didn't bring her here either. Why should it be up to me to make sure the girl is educated, fed, housed, medicated, etc.?
It is not the girls fault but it DEFINITELY is not my fault either, even though I (we) are the ones that must pay for it.
I don't care if she did everything right in the U.S., she is Mexico's citizen and Mexico should be taking care of her, not us.

So at this point why aren't we sending the bill to Mexico for her years of education?
