the complexities of it do nothing to change the fact that the law is being broken. You cant take the position “well we did this, or this is kinda messed up, so they should be allowed/rewarded for breaking the law”.
ayo look my dude, FUCK. YOU.
I was brought to this country from Mexico when I was 5 months old. FIVE FUCKING MONTHS OLD. I've only been back twice during summers in my childhood, but that's it.
The only life I've known & built is here in the states.
I'm 22, I work illegally, drive illegally, I'm a "criminal" for being here, and have every other fucking law in this country against me, but what the fuck am I suppose to do? Go back to my country? FUCK YOU THIS IS MY COUNTRY. I've spent all 22 years of life here, so fuck everyone with your shitty fucking mindset thinking people are "criminals" over something they have absolutely no control over.
Go through the U.S.I. system to become a resident/citizen? I'll have to wait 30+ years before anything happens for me.
Corporate/Industrial/Job sponsorship for residency? I gotta get a BA and then find a job that'll help with such a thing.
Get a BA? Gotta pay my own way through school (which I fucking am) then hope to God someone will hire someone in my position.
I didn't choose my situation, I was put in it & now that people in my situation can get a little help, people like you wanna shit on it? nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah FUCK. YOU.
