A few weeks ago I heard a story [about a teacher in Oklahoma] … Her students did so well, they won a science competition and were asked to fly somewhere to accept the prize.

For many of those students, this would be their first trip on an airplane and their first trip outside of rural Oklahoma. It was pretty exciting!

But there were some unexpected problems. … Some of these children were illegal.

… many kids are finding their teen years include a horrible surprise. … Their dreams, their goals, their hopes for the future, mean nothing…. Often the children don’t even know they’re illegal until it’s time to get a driver’s license.

What do we do ..

This:

Support children, support the DREAM Act

    “illegal” or illegitimate?

    Simply being a bastard does not cause these problems, being an illegal immigrant does.

    As you can see from reading the comment thread, which is replete with posts from utter bastards.
