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.

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.
