I wish good luck for your buddy, but why hasn't he tried to become a citizen thus far in his life? It sounds like he has is shit together, but this was the most important thing to overlook.

The problem is that if they make an exception for him than they would have to make an exception for everyone. I do feel bad because he sounds like a good guy but he made a gamble by not worrying about becoming a citizen untill now and he lost. I'm not sure why you think he will be killed instantly if he gets deported though, where did you hear that?

It probably comes from the same assumption that if you walk into Compton and you're white, you'll immediately get shot.

If he's smart, he'll be able to make a break for it and find shelter somewhere they can't find him.

His family left Guatemala because they were in fear for their lives hence if he returns he will more than likely be killed, again thanks for all who supported and actually read the article, it's been a Cincinnati wide thing, it even made the front page of our paper along side CINCINNATI first baseman Joey Votto winning the national league MVP award, his deportation has been postponed because of everyone that signed the petition, again thank you

His family left Guatemala 15 years ago! (if my math is correct) Surely you are over exaggerating these comments your making.

The thing is, there is a right way to enter this country. We have processes and procedures in place that many have used to become American citizens. Why didn't the parents do that?

Big surprise there.. its guatemala, not haiti or north korea.. he'll be fine.

this is a classic "see someone famous do it and i'll try to make it work for me" scenario.

I just read another article that said his family is in hiding but have hired an attorney for their son(WTF). This situation is all kinds of shady. I still don't understand how his family made it this long with out ever being noticed? His parents don't speak English and neither have high school diplomas? Why doesn't one of them step up and help their son? Are they just gonna stay in hiding forever? Even if he is allowed to stay they will just go after his family next. I understand he did not come here by choice but his family did so they are actually the guilty ones here and they are letting their son take the fall for it. Like it has been said before, there are holes in this story for sure.

seems like a lot of folks on this forum are affraid, if another person has dark skin or don't speak english very well, I guess those same people do not get out of their own house very offten or travel for that matter. Better get Dick the Chaney back in office to keep you guys safe.

If his family was really fearing for their life in the country they could have just filed for immigration as a refugee or requested political asylum. If it was just a few people they were scared of then they should have moved to another part of Guatemala. It's not like anyone would remember this guy since he left when he was 3. Plus, with an American education he shouldn't have that hard of a time finding a job down there.

I don't care WHAT color, religion or sex they are...It's about following laid out procedures for entering this country.

I don't think anyone's really afraid of immigrants we just want people to follow the law. If we are not enforcing immigration why enforce traffic violations or anything else? Plus there is the whole economic ramifications thing...

Yeah I've noticed the same, it's alot of ppl on here that throw off the "redneck"/"racist" vibe on here(no offense) but maybe you people that fall into that category should just stfu, I know everyone has their own opinion but there is also another saying "if ya ain't got anything nice to say then don't say anything at all" or "to each to their own"
Again I THANK EVERYONE THAT HAS SIGNED THE PETITION, it is grately appreciated

I am not just reffering to this but in GENERAL that is how it appears.
yes we the U.S. OF A. have rules to become a citizen and that shouild have been his priority when he was old enough to understand. But you know politics plays a big role in obtaining citizenship too. Odds are he knew he would be departed right away. Who knows that is my GUESS and only a guess so no need to write back and tell me I GUESSED.

but as for as my statement that a lot of people here seem to be affraid yeah I think that. I think alot do not travel also. But maybe when they grow up
they will have more of an open mind and travel meet new and exciting people
