Re: “They Win: DREAMers Get In-State Tuition at Arizona Universities

Hey… my grandma was technically a dual citizen of (AZ), USA & Mexico. Her family had escaped to the Mormon colonies south of the US/Mexico border. While there her records of birth… proof of her parents US citizenship were destroyed in a fire. Later when she was teaching school in Mesa, Az a new policy was requiring that all school teachers put their birth certificates on record so they could teach. Of course she couldn't do that. A family friend & clerk in the county understood her dilemma & forged her a birth certificate saying that she was born in Douglas AZ instead of Morellos, MX where her birth had been…. (in a tent). She was scared to death to step foot into MX after that…. figured she would be stuck down there. So you know I understand that folks are in a dilemma … the dreamers especially have been? I know that this will attract a lot of hatred to say this but I feel for the dreamers…. I also think empathy is a good thing. It can bolster & improve a society… These dreamers can go on to get an education & then they will contribute to AZ or anywhere in the US. I think it's short sighted to resent their being educated for the betterment of the whole society. I find that resentment kind of backwards & oafish really. So I guess here comes the hate rattles now that I've said this…
