8. Senator Graham, these kids know the feeling of wasting their...
...time. Do you?

Imagine what it's like to be in elementary school...or middle school...or high school. Your teacher tells you to work hard, do your homework, get good grades, turn in that report...and you know ALL THE TIME that you can't get in to college or get a good job anyway because you came to this country, illegally, when you were 2, 3 or 5 years old? Would you still try? Or would it seem like a waste of time...

As a teacher, I know these kids. They are SMART. But they don't always try their best because they know they are WASTING THEIR TIME...until this country gets it together and passes comprehensive immigration reform, or a 'Dream Act'. Yet they still dream...

Does Congress really want to improve education? Give these kids a reason to NOT waste their time. Give them HOPE and help them dream. :patriot:
