Im proud of my hispanic family and my husbands past. Its hard for the avg person to understand the need to leave ones own country to survive (literally). I understand your instint to protect your son. And I hope when my daughters are old enough to hear you opinion they realize you are misinformed. Just think your son may fall in love with a lady in college that used thedream act or whose parents were fruit pickers.

well said and congratulations on your successful life here
