So this is my response, my reaction, and my opinion to an article I just read at Wordever.com by the Huffington Post:
It is a really sad case when immigrant students are brought to the US at such an early age because they feel American and all they know is America. Believe it or not they are entitled to feel that way. I mean just imagine being born somewhere else and then growing up in an entire different part of the world with new customs and a different language. It will be a shame and a great loss for this country if many of these immigrant students get deported back to their countries when they have been in the US struggling for so long and have worked just as hard for an education. Many people argue that they should go back to their homelands but we are being ignorant, how many of us would leave or flee to another country if things in America turned out just as bad and for those who are parents how many of you would want a brighter future for your kids and do anything it takes to assure that possibility even if it means risking your own life for that matter. I mean who are we to judge the tribulations that perhaps many of these immigrant families have encountered in their homelands and have we forgotten that our parents and/or ancestors were once immigrants too. I hope that Obama is not just bringing things out to the table at the last minute just because it’s “convenient” and “beneficial” for him with the elections coming up because it is kind of fishy that he waited all the way till now and honestly it scares me. I’m trying to think positive and I just hope that if he does get re-elected, that he keeps his word and has an actual plan set up to make a change for these young undocumented students.
