Undocumented Immigrant Eyes Law School in Hopes of Defending Herself

Monday, January 21, 2013

Reforming the nation's immigration laws is likely to be a top priority for President Barack Obama in his second term in office. An immigration overhaul could eventually lead to millions of illegal immigrants becoming U.S. citizens.

Katherine Tabares is an undocumented immigrant living in New York City and studying political science at LaGuardia Community College. She moved to the United States from Colombia three years ago. She plans to attend law school in hopes of defending herself and her family if the need ever arises.

Illegal aliens are criminals and parasites, one and all. Practically everything they do on U.S. soil is illegal. They need to be ferreted out, rounded up like cattle, punished for their numerous crimes, then booted back to whence they snuck in from with such extreme prejudice that they will never, ever think of violating our sovereignty again. Build a wall and deport 'em all. Enough is enough.
