So---these kids and their parents are here illegally, have already received a free education, health care, and numerous other benefits on my and all other LEGAL Americans tax dollars, then they get a free college education and citizenship to boot. Does anyone else see the stupidity of this. Reward people for breaking the law. What is this country coming too?

Another attempt to reward criminal activity which seems to be a main priority of the Democratic Party while confiscating more money out of legal citizen's pockets.

Exactly why should legal taxpayers fund the destruction of this country and support criminal activity?

I am so tired of this government being so two-faced!! Our legal American-born parents can't even afford putting even one child through college. They pray for good grades in school so they may get a scholarship. Save every extra penny they have for that dream, maybe the dream they were never able to do. Then there are people like myself...on social security, no cost of living increase for the second year in a row!! Can you think of anything necessary over the past 2 years that hasn't increased in cost? Who deserves this money, the illegals or the legals???!!! Great Britain takes good care of their seniors, why haven't we learned from them yet?

Contact your Senator Email-Write-Call - ask them to vote in opposition to this Bill !!

I've seen it in Protests of Late, these 'fabulous students' Legal Americans who oppose ILLEGALS are Racist and Biggots! - because we want to uphold our Laws While our Government allows federal law to be broken by doing nothing - for political points. We are 'forced' to put them through school, and other freebies and now this. What a travesty for Patriotic Legal Americans!

Why as a Country, do we appease Law breakers by rewarding them? Then we demonize law abiding citizens and success? This bill if passed by the Senate will do more harm than good for our Country. Loop holes and Fraud will abound, and a whole new ILLEGAL ISSUE will present itself. Where does it End?

Our Country cannot sustain this Economically. See how many opt for the Military.. I can make a winning wager on that. Where are the checks and balance? This is another "Political Point" Fraud being played on the American People.

Why do you care. You're going to prison for ten years anyway. Then we can deport you when you get out. We don't need any more druggies here.

For your information, studies have shown that about 5 % of immingrants are likley to break the laws. Why? because they need to be careful of what they do. They cant afford to party, drive over the speed limit, or drink and drive because they are scared they will be kicked out of the country. On the other hand we have all kinds of people living out of the taxes we pay, like prisioner for example. illegals dont even make 30 % of that population! I do think paying for thier education is a little too much, but giving these people citizenship is a great idea because if we think about it they are the ones who do the hard work!!!
