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

    That sucks and I am sorry to hear Evan was denied. I, too, think it is ridiculous because there are scholarships, although minor, for people being just left-handed. Now no offense to the lefties out there but you would think for every scholarship out there, there'd be one in favor of SCIs. Especially since the wheelchair world is gaining attention. Just a thought. I hope you get some positive feedback from your Senator.
