To four Red Wing High School students, a recent trip to Washington, D.C., was more than a chance to see the White House and the Lincoln Memorial. For them, the trip was personal.
We went to advocate for a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and to talk to representatives from the House of Representatives and Senate, student Oscar Machado said.
Machado, along with classmates Oscar Hernandez, William Ortiz and Deisy Miranda Rivera, visited the Capitol March 4 through March 8 to attend the 2013 National Latino Advocacy Days.
The event was put on the National Council of La Raza and brought about 400 people from across the county to Washington to help make legislators aware of issues affecting Hispanic Americans.
The Red Wing students were invited on the trip by Hispanic Outreach Executive Director Lucy Richardson.
They really want to see changes, Richardson said. They were brought to this community as little kids, without being asked. For them, this is home. They dont even remember their own culture and they feel more comfortable speaking English.

,We had to be ready to speak to our senators and representatives ”
Illegals have senators and reps????
Here is a ten year study of the outcome of the 1986 amnesty. NOT GOOD! And they want to do this again only 10 times bigger!
[snip]The amnestied population brought little human capital. By 1992, just 36 percent of amnestied adults reported being able to speak English well. The figure for the Mexican majority was only 27 percent.
Only 28 percent of the legalized aliens over 24 were high school graduates, compared to 78 percent of native U.S. Hispanics; 55 percent of the amnesty adults had never eyen entered high school.
Lawbreaking Mexican Nationals DEMANDING U.S. citizenship. I remember when America WASN’T a nation of cowards.
They are criminals. Arrest these illegal fools. Seize their assets. Deport them to their loser countries.
PLEASE TAKE THE POLL. SPREAD.
And as a citizen/taxpayer I demand you shut up and get out of my country.
Evidently moreso than we citizens do.
heck...and no one’s even mentioned Clinton’s “Citizenship USA “
