Posted on 11/28/2011 7:21:11 PM PST by moonshinner_09
DREAM Act supporter and Co-Founder of the Tequila Party Movement Shirl Mora James said shes outraged about the suicide of 18-year-old Joaquin Luna, an illegal immigrant and senior at Juarez Lincoln High School in Mission.
"Maybe it took Joaquin to sacrifice himself, to bring attention to the desperate situation that the Dreamers are in," Mora James said Monday. These kids are American - they are Americans without status - but they are still Americans!"
Family members said despite Lunas achievements in school and talent for design, the teen thought he would never reach his goals of becoming an engineer, and providing a better life for his family, since he didn't have a Social Security number to proceed.
"It's unfortunate, but there has been other cases where the kids get desperate (and) they give up, Mora James said. This one is more heart wrenching because just last year, were five votes short of passing the DREAM Act."
Cameron County Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa said the DREAM Act does not give universal amnesty and most who have analyzed the act, agree it's fair...it's just a few ultra conservatives that oppose the act.
"I firmly believe that there's some racist elements to that, Hinojosa said. I believe they want to keep America to themselves. They dont want this country to be the country that it's always been, that welcomes people from all over the world."
Richard Hartwell, founder of the web site Action Dream Team, which also supports the DREAM Act and provides a forum for Dreamers, said Lunas fears of failing have much merit.

I don’t buy the story anyway.
I feel bad for the kid’s family but teen suicides are far more common than they should be and I’m guessing there were other issues that led to it.
As far as I’m concerned, these clowns should be ashamed of themselves for putting the kid out there as some kind of martyr.
They are willing, of course, to use this to argue for their cause.
He really was a victim of illegal immigration.
How sad his death is being exploited.
How sad that he didn’t just move to one of the states that give free education to illegals.
How sad he didn’t got back to Mexico and attend one of the over 300 colleges they have there.
Tell you what; if you ALL commit suicide, we’ll give you anything you want.
Maybe...just maybe...his parents’ decision to move here illegally and make him an illegal was causative. I mean, wouldn’t you be confused? Great parenting there.
We beat this to death here last night. It’s all a lie. The kid more than likely had some other reason to commit suicide and the freeloading commie libs are just exploiting his suicide. Never let a good suicide go to waste.
He did not kill himself over the DREAM Act unless he was a completely ignorant moron.
...are they outraged at the gun company? The parents of this kid? The kid himself?
Or are they mad at us?
We didn’t put the gun in his hand or pull the trigger....
If you align yourself with a organization called The Race (la razza) and listen to radio stations called The Race (la razza), you will not become a USA American.
One: The kid killed himself in protest to the failure of the DREAM Act, which means his mind was filled with a lot of nonsense by people pushing a political agenda, or
Two: The kid killed himself for whatever reasons kids do such things, and it has nothing to do with the DREAM Act, which means people are cynically using his death to score cheap political points.
Whichever scenario, these folks should be ashamed of themselves...
So they are suggesting that we should give amnesty to all suicidal teenagers?
You have to understand: They’re (continental) Americans. We’re not. They mostly have some Aztec/Mayan blood. (Even though they still oppress pure Mayans in the south.) We’re still mainly European or African occupiers.
illegals aren’t allowed to own guns.... this guy was guilty of a felony!
I'd like to find this woman's email address and give her a piece of my mind. This "Shirl Mora James" is an idiot. I wonder if she thinks Americans who live in Mexico unlawfully, boo Mexico sports team, and wave the American flag at home are "really Mexican kids without status"
So, if I sacrifice myself by committing to suicide, will everyone become Christian conservatives and no more poverty in the world? Those are what I want, and following these people’s logic, that’s how things should happen.
Maybe it's all bullshit too, and he just got dumped by his girlfriend. But take a lesson, all you know-nothing Newt-bashers: if we don't implement some kind of workable option, whether it's Newt's plan, Bachmann's plan, Perry's plan or some other similar plan, and try to implement the draconian "deport them all" mindset, this kind of incendiary crap will be all over the media times ten. Times a hundred.
And you can take it to the bank that the leftwing anarchist/marxist a-holes like the filth who financed and organized the Occupier revolution dress rehearsal, will seize on this kid and his like with both hands. They want an "American Spring" and some hapless yo-yo will become a martyr, like the moron who set himself on fire in Tunisia, sparking the "Arab Spring."
You all know the media and how it works hand in glove with the traitor faction of the DNC. Guaranteed that before nightfall, this poor sap will be known worldwide as a victim of the heartless racist capitalist republicans and their banker cronies.
Cornel West was not just daydreaming when he said the fight for "entitlements" would be "in the streets." Read the quote above for a perfect illustration of the mentality we would be up against if we don't find a way to deal with the reality of living breathing reacting people who have damn little to lose by taking things down.
And that's the cold clear light of day.
And they would say they are the only Americans in the USA.
So your plan is to spout mewling fear of what the media thinks and your courageous stance is to do what they want?
LOL I think you wet yourself.
I think that there should be an investigation as to where this illegal alien illegally procured a firearm.
So this kid was denied college? -— No.
So he was forced to pay out of state tuition? -— No.
So what was the difference between him and many other TX high school seniors? It wasn’t the state of TX that had the kids parents include him in their illegal act.
I GUESS DREAMERS FEEL THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE SPECIAL ATTENTION.
Let the Free Shit Army come.
Are you aligned with The Race?
Or Simply unequiped and unprepared to tackle Engineering. What kind of grades did he get in High School? Was he one of the quota who was advanced automatically?
There are few things more frustrating and hopeless than being way over your head academically. Specially at the University level.
Only if you think I agree with the extreme premises I ascribe to it.
Yeah, legal immigration is only about 1.2 million per year now. We just won't let anyone at all in.
Let's not set ourselves up to the charge of even not knowing the enemy well enough to get their name right.
It's La Raza, which is the equivalent of European (White) Supremacy, without the real and useful historical accomplishments to back up the so called "pride," or cultural resentment.
Like all primitives, it's "give us respect or we'll kill you."
If you truly understand Spanish, and translation, not transliteration, the pronouncements of these animals is worse than the worst ever white cracker hate speech, and half as rational.
If you are part of The Race movement, just state so.
Who's even saying that, other than folks such as you who use it as a straw man to avoid adopting a rational position of enforcing existing law and allowing the self-deportations to begin, as several states have already proven is precisely what happens when illegals even think the law might be enforced.
His family here in the states could have sent him back to Mexico while helping to fund his education since American money goes a whole lot farther in Mexico.
And you just proved that anything that can be said will be said by ignoramuses or fanatics, whether it makes sense at a third grade level or not. Nice delusion, though.
Now the illegals have their own Matthew Shepard.
Thanks. I despise the MSM for working La Raza as a cute name and not for what it really means in its translation or context.
Am I a bad person for not caring about illegal alien’s children anymore either? Seriously, I’m getting to the point where I’m just thinking screw em all. The kids parents should be citizens before the children themselves can be imo. One goes with the other. We have our OWN major problems here in the US why oh why do we have to keep deaking with the bullshite from the criminal Messi-cans as well.
“Maybe it took Joaquin to sacrifice himself, to bring attention to the desperate situation that the Dreamers are in,” Mora James said Monday.
Or maybe, the shameless way that leftists exploit suicide victims, such as that gay Lady Gaga fan recently, glamourizes suicide as an option for kids like Joaquin.

Hilarious source material (( ping )).
You get it!! (with all due respect) This is a Mayan Aztec thing. Their revenge on European occupiers but they are too cowardly to do it against the Spanish elites of Mexico (Central America too) so they come here to tug on the heart strings of dumbass Americans
Quick, let’s pass a bad law because some kids who need counseling might do something dumb if we don’t!
Huh? Were you talking to me or to the voices in your head; it can’t have been me, tho’, ‘cause your response is utterly meaningless.
“We didn’t bring the kid here.”
Damn straight. Nor are we responsible for giving any illegal-alien anything other than a one-way ticket back to the nation that spawned them.
I am so sick of this sh!t: Millions of free-loading illegal aliens demanding that I give them something that they are not entitled to (free education, free housing, tax refunds, free healthcare, US citizenship, a driver’s license, welfare, WIC, and on, and on, and on.)
Geezus H. Crimeny! When is this nation going to pull its head out of its ass, round these criminals up, and send them back where they came from?
Oh, and before some chowder-head says “but, but, but we can’t seperate families from one another,” I suggest we send their illegal spawn back with them if they want to stay together. Problem solved.
Illegal Aliens: Piss on all of them.
