A search for acceptance: An undocumented student lives in limbo
Santa Cruz Sentinel ^ | 01/23/2011 | TOVIN LAPAN

SANTA CRUZ

Xochitlquetzal hates the words "illegal" and "alien," especially when they're side by side.

"It's dehumanizing this idea that a person can be illegal,' and by calling someone an alien you label them as an other,' as not human," the UC Santa Cruz student said.

The community studies major has a remarkable memory and tells vivid stories from childhood, many of which come back to an endless struggle for acceptance.

Xochitlquetzal carries a serious demeanor, with broad shoulders that seem to support an unseen weight.

None of this is surprising when Xochitlquetzal stares with large, dark, emotive eyes and begins to tell the story of growing up in California an undocumented immigrant and transgender.

There are so many untruths in this article that is is fraudulent journalism that this reporter made no attempt to uncover or question any of the presented "facts". There have been no on the street raids by the Border Patrol in Northern California during the last 30 years. For this individual to make this statement is an out and out lie.

We can change things for him.

We’ll call him “valued friend”.

Where valued = illegal

and friend = alien.

Perhaps he should have a gander at our Constitution.

It might clear up the "illegal" part a bit.

I'm so sick of this entitled attitude from illegal aliens.

“Undocumented transgender” — obviously calls for massive federal spending. Who’s looking out for the interests of this new special interest group? They’ve been oppressed for so long by the power structure. Reparations must be paid!

Illegal aliens are allatime trying to argue the words don't apply to them.

But they do ~ the words have immutable meanings ~ illegal and alien ~ and they can change everything with a visit "down home", that means down and home ~ somewhere else, and they won't be illegal or alien once they get home!

He would be better served majoring in English rather than community studies; at least then he would be able to use a dictionary and know what the word "alien" actually means.

You’re so right ‘’X’’. Let’s call illegal aliens what they really are: criminals. You know what I hate you little illegal alien bastard? I hate you disrespecting my countrys borders, it’s immigration laws and the fact that every week, like every other hard-working American tax-payer, money is taking out of my paycheck in taxes so your ass and all you other illegals can get a free education, health care and God knows what other freebies. You and your people are parasites bleeding my country try. Go the Hell home and fix your own damn country!

The story is very careful not to use the word "he" or "she" when referring to Xochitlquetzal. Oh, the indignity of the English language, to lack a gender-neutral singular nominative pronoun other than "it"!

As for your question...well, you make the call:

Oh BREAK out the violins and pass me a hankie! What a steaming crock of BS.
Let’s just start with the assumed name...No south american of spanish descent has any right to a name with mestizo origins. That would imply that she was mongolian and NOT caucasian, as she clearly is. I wonder, frequently, how it is that the spanish and portuguese invaders of south america get such a big break from the revisionists even as the english do not? If such a rewriting of history works so well for them, let all of us, in north america, assume indian names as well. Will it work as well for us? I doubt it...

It’s just a damn shame that this heavy-weight Cinderella is so “injured” by the term “illegal alien”. Leave us spare her tender feelings and not point out any obvious problems she faces- she’s homely, she’s fat, and (oh oh) she’s an ILLEGAL ALIEN. Of all her problems, this is probably the one she can most easily fix.

Poor tender little flower...look up the definition of the term, Toots. If you choose to be a parasite on the system, then learn it, live it, love it.

As per wikipedia, Xochitlquetzal is a goddess associated with concepts of fertility, beauty, and female sexual power, serving as a protector of young mothers and a patroness of pregnancy, childbirth, and the crafts practised by women such as weaving and embroidery. I believe you're thinking of either Quetzalcoatl or Kukulkan.

On a side note, Kukulkan appeared in the Star Trek (animated) episode "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth".

This has been your moment of Star Trek geekery for the day.

Well, I think we can pretty much rule out transgenderism as being caused by any kind of genetic factor.

There won’t be any passing of those genes along, even if science figures out how to enable fertility in one of these.

"I'm not doing this for myself, I am almost done in college. I'm doing this for the people who will come after me," Xochitlquetzal said. "If the DREAM Act passes, that doesn't mean everything will be great. It will just be time to move on to the next fight."

So, this student expects illegal aliens of all categories to be present in the US for years to come, and that they will need people such as him to help them. I guess that tells us how some of the current illegals view the future - no end to the illegal entries and schemes to remain here.

Federal and state DREAM Acts spark heated debate
By TOVIN LAPAN
01/23/2011

The DREAM Act has been making the rounds in Congress since 2001, most recently failing to win approval in December.

The California DREAM Act was first introduced in 2006, and has not fared much better, making it through the state Legislature three times before being vetoed each time by former Gov. Arnold Shwarzenegger.

The original sponsor of the state bill, Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, reintroduced a two-part version of the legislation earlier this month, and it is possible the federal bill will be brought back again this year. In both cases the debate is expected to be fierce.

The federal DREAM Act, or Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, would give children brought to the United States without a legal status a path to citizenship if they enlist in the military or attend a four-year college. It does not allow access to financial aid.

The Migration Policy Institute estimated that about 850,000 people could possibly meet all the criteria for eligibility, out of a total of about 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the country.

Even with the layers of restrictions that have been added, critics call the bill an “amnesty” for those who broke the law and a symbol of a dysfunctional immigration policy. They also say it is unfair to those immigrants who came legally, and are working toward citizenship.

“First of all, we should enforce our existing immigration laws before we start granting amnesty to
Advertisement
people,” said Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C. “Also the maximum age of 16 is too high. Amnesty should be for people whose identity is formed here.”

While the California DREAM Act would not grant any legal status to undocumented immigrants, it would open access to state financial aid and grants. Gov. Jerry Brown previously has expressed his support for the bill.

If approved, California would be the third state to offer financial aid to undocumented students, after Texas and New Mexico.

Cedillo broke the bill into two pieces to counter critics who believe state funding should not be spent on undocumented students. One part only offers the students access to grants and aid administered by the colleges, and would not “cost the state a penny,” he said. The second part would allow the students to apply for Cal Grants, which pull from state coffers.

“Many chambers of commerce up and down the state support this,” Cedillo said. “They think of how these students will be the professionals of the future, the architects, doctors and nurses.”

One common misconception is that the bills would overwhelmingly benefit Latinos, but students from Asia and the Pacific Islands make up 40 percent of the U.S. undocumented student population, according to Asian Pacific Coalition at UCLA.

Currently, UC Board of Regents policy does not allow school officials to ask for private donations or participate in fundraising on behalf of undocumented students, something UC Santa Cruz Chancellor George Blumenthal says he would like to do.

“Does [the Federal DREAM Act] solve all of the problems? Of course not. But I’ll take every victory I can get. It will be a great boost to the morale of these students. It’s a sign that they have a future here,” Blumenthal said.

AT A GLANCE

DREAM ACT LEGISLATION
FEDERAL: The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act was first introduced in 2001, and the most recent version failed to pass Congress in December. With many stipulation built in, the legislation creates a pathway to citizenship for the children of undocumented immigrants. It specifies:

The child must have come to the country before turning 16, and cannot be older than 29 to be eligible.

The students are not eligible for in-state tuition, or access to federal financial aid and grants.

They must graduate from a U.S. high school or obtain a GED from a U.S. institution, and they must reside in the country for five or more years.

The applicant must also be of ‘good moral character,’ as determined by the Department of Homeland Security, which includes submitting to background checks, medical examinations and other stipulations.

If all those criteria are met, the immigrant receives a ‘conditional non-immigrant’ status.

After two years, and once the applicant has met the college or military requirements — two years at a four-year institution or two years in the military — they can earn legal immigrant status after further provisions are met.

The student’s ability to sponsor family members for U.S. citizenship is limited.

While they are under the conditional status, they will not be eligible for other federal aid, such as food stamps.

Only those in the country at the time of passage would be eligible to apply
CALIFORNIA: The state legislation has been proposed by Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, three times, passed through the state Legislature three times, and was vetoed by former Gov. Arnold Shwarzenegger three times. The current incarnation is split into two bills, AB 130 and AB 131. The first bill would allow students who meet the in-state tuition requirements to apply for and receive specified financial aid administered by California’s public colleges and universities. The types of aid these students would be eligible for include: Board of Governors Fee Waiver and Institutional Student Aid, a student aid program administered by the attending college or university. The second bill would allow students who meet the in-state tuition requirements to apply for and receive Cal Grants.

But in spite of those facts, are we to just ignore the facts that people are sneaking into this country every day and we do nothing?

It has to be stopped, and those who are here illegally need to be returned from whence they came.

Xochitlquetzal hates the words "illegal" and "alien," especially when they're side by side.

OK ... how about just "trespasser" or "invader"?

"New Conquistador"?
