You know what's worse than being or being called an "illegal immigrant" or "undocumented?" Its being or being called "Homeless" Especially if you your grand parents were born and raised in America.

Congratulations to Ms. Salamanca, for her honor at the White House, but especially for having the determination to find ways to effect positive change for yourself, your family and community, and for your adopted country. I wish you great success.

I applaud Ms. Salamanca's initiative and passion. She came here as a child and then had no choice in the matter.

However, we must address the fact there is an increasing deluge of people pouring across our borders which has reached crisis proportions. How can the U.S. be expected to absorb these vast numbers when many of our own citizens are out of work, living in poverty, or on the streets?
