Good to see you back! I thought maybe you killed yourself after our loss on Nov.6.
As usual, I slightly disagree with some of your statements. I worked with a Mexican-American guy whose mother came from Mexico (legally, I think) but lived in public funded housing. She worked two jobs to raise my friend and send him to college. He earned a Masters Degree in engineering and was one of the best stress analysists I've ever worked with.
He also had one of the hardest to get security clearances in the defense industry. I had one of those too, but it takes up to a year of background investigation to get.
I don't think he needed a green card attached to him. I'm also sure you realize that not all hispanics are created equal.
