Re: Living in the Shadows: Undocumented Children Strive to Succeed
16 May 2005
“abuse and neglect”? our home countries break people, you have no right to judge us until you lived in those conditions. My parents had no alternatives, and I know without doubt that this “illegal life” is by leaps and bounds better than being a citizen back in Russia.

I pray every waking moment this bill will be passed. I came here when I was twelve. When I graduated in NJ two years ago I had a 3.62 GPA, 1210 on SAT, numerous awards and some 12 AP credits. And for what? My parents can’t pay out of state tuition.

Tax payers are suffering you say? Don’t be so quick to run your mouth if you don’t know what illegals live like. I and my parents have tax ids. Which means we work and PAY PAY PAY taxes, same ones you do.

Plus, if you didn’t read properly you should, because the Dream Act will give me a chance to become a resident and eventually a citizen, thus I will too pay taxes.

My sister is entering High School soon, how much would I give to let her have what other kids take for granted, she is just as smart if not smarter than me. She too will get numerous awards. She hardly speaks any Russian, been here since elementary. Is it fair to send her back?
