No Human Being Was Born Illegal

Each year, Facing History teacher Jane Wooster asks the students in her classes to take on a "social action" project of their own choosing. This year, several of the students have chosen to conduct a lunch-time demonstration to draw attention to the use of the word "illegal" to describe undocumented immigrants, and start a school-wide conversation about the way immigrants are perceived in their community.

 So many people take racism as a joke but its not its a serious issue even if people think its just in a joking matter it can be hurting someone inside really bad hopefully my school decides to do this Not In My School program

 Wow.. that is all i have to say!! and it motivaded me to try and spred the word 

NO ONE WAS BORN ILLEGAL!!

<3

boy am I glad my children do not attend your school!! I support the deportation of ALL illegals

 That is one of the most terrible comments I have ever heard. Isn't America the land of opportunity? Stop trying to lock the door to people who want a good life. There is nothing wrong with it. Nobody is illegal!

Illegals do not have a right to be in our country.  If they want to live here, work here, raise their children here, they have to do it lawfully.  Cicumventing the law because its too difficult or hard is not an excusable reason.  Our laws are in place for a reason, to protect US citizens.  Its not racist or hate.  I support deporation of all illegals. 

 It is not their fault why they are illegal plus you don't even know how hard it is to be in thier position. I don't even know how you all can say that this is your country cause all the white people came from Europe and brought all these diseases over here. So maybe you should get your HISTORY right before you start hating on mexicans.

Nice and inspirational video thanks for this beautiful share !! :)

Even if you don't want to call them illegal aliens, they are still doing something illegal. Undocumented people in the united states are a huge strain on our health care system. Because they don't pay for visits to the ER, legal citzens end up paying so much more. My neighbor, who is an illegal alien, just had a baby and paid nothing! My insurance doesn't cover any maturnity and my husband and I have wanted to have a child. I looked into costs and found out it would be $10,000! And that's only without complications. This does not seem fair to me. 

 I'm a legal imigrant , I have viza I payed taxes and all this but I work with people illegal and don't pay nothing, they give to them and cash and is not fair. I'm sorry for you that you have to pay(I payed 1000 with insurance) but be strong and have a baby. Take care

illegal in America means NOT LEGAL. if you dont want to be called illegal immagrants then pay your dam taxes.

Your comment is so ignorant and uneducated the misconception that immigrants do not pay their taxs is just that a MISCONCEPTION many do file yearly. touching on the fact that illegal immigrants are "stealing your jobs" is appaulding for the most part many immigrants take the highly undesiable jobs,  with recent immigration laws being passed prohibting employers to hire illegal immigrants many of this jobs have gone unfilled. Its so easy to repeat what is often heard by others without first having any knowlege of the actual facts. People need to start  accepting  America as a melting pot , at th end of the day  everyone is   a immigrant everyone CLEARLY  did not orignate from America.

illegal immigrants or any aliens should not be in america because they takeing my job

 ey guey , yo soy un trabajador mas mejor que ti 

 YOU DON'T HAVE A JOB BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO SPELL!!!

Learn English, American Citizen.

It is not their fault why they are illegal plus you don't even know how hard it is to be in thier position. I don't even know how you all can say that this is your country cause all the white people came from Europe and brought all these diseases over here. So maybe you should get your HISTORY right before you start hating on mexicans.
