    If you love this country so much why aren't you obeying our laws and becoming legal. I hate it for your circumstances but we are the greatest country there is and to be a citizen is an honor. Do it legally.

    Yes but that's DACA is just protecting the young, if ice gets hold of his mom, she will be deported, like I been saying DACA only saves a few not all.

    Even if applying for citizenship it takes years and money! They work jobs most won't do. And still the government collects taxes from them.Some even go to college and do far better and more than American citizens. But still immigrants are seen as a burden to society? That's ridiculous.

    UNDOCUMENTED IS ILLEGAL, YES, THEIR PARENTS NEED TO BE DEPORTED BACKT TO THEIR HOME COUNTRIES AND THESE CHILDREN BROUGHT HERE WITH THEM, SHOULD RETURN TO THEIR HOME COUNTRY ALSO, AND APPLY LEGALLY TO COME HERE.

    It's sad how this man is literally airing out his fears and people are literally shitting on him... first of all there's a special place in hell for people like that. I don't get how people think that they have any right to claim who's "illegall" or "legal" cause last I checked that wasn't a thing before America was "discovered" but most importantly I admire those who leave everything behind and begin a new life elsewhere. Leaving one bad situation for a moderately better situation is scary and I commend this man and his family. Keep your head up chap!

    "But we have lived here in this country for so many years"....... were your own very words that came out of your mouth and you never made any effort to become legal? .....Documented?......Did absolutely nothing to even try to become legal citizens at all..........Just what in the hell is it that you people don't understand? Now you expect sympathy/empathy from the rest of us? No....forget that....there is no excuse. You should have done what is supposed to be done when you come here and you didn't even make that effort so quit begging for sympathy from others that you do not deserve. Others have come here legally..........made way for themselves to become legal citizens......You and your mother need to do the SAME........to let you all stay being undocumented and illegally here is a slap in the face of those who did do the right thing to become citizens.
