Illegal immigrant: 'Give us a chance, give us an opportunity'

Students Cesar Vargas and Gaby Pacheco, both illegal immigrants supporting the DREAM Act talk to American Morning’s Kiran Chetry about why they think Congress should pass the act granting a legal path to citizenship for kids who entered the country illegally.

The act would grant citizenship to those who attend college or serve in the military.

  2. Native

    I keep hearing all this talk about the illegal immigration deal. It's not really hurting anyone and if people need to blame them for America's financial problems then we're looking in the wrong direction.

    Also as far as all the racist things I'm seeing are going about them going back to their country and leaving. I agree partially. I think all you illegals should leave, I'm a native blood Apache. We never asked you to come here, we never wanted you here. You stole and murdered till the country became yours. So who are you to sit and tell others they can't come in because of who they are.

    Don't tell me your family came here legally. As they people giving them "legal" status should never have been here in the first place.

  3. DD - Illegals not at fault for US becoming 3rd world

    You guys are just looking for a scapegoat.

    It is the degenerate americans in Detroit who are making this country become third world. The mexicans actually work, and their communities are vibrant.

    Like hitler with the jews.

  4. just to let u know

    sorry to tell you guys but... everyone in this country their ancestors were immigrants there is no pure breed americans lol whether your family immigrated from europe, asia, africa, latin america , or etc. the real americans were native american indians . so it is soooo funny to me when white people always say they are american and they should send back those hispanic immigrants back to their country when all they want is freedom thats why they are running away from their country and in most cases they are trying to get away from communism and to live a better life and thats the reason why everyone's ancestors came to this country "to look for a better place to live" always running away from something.
