SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (AP) — Four illegal immigrant youth activists will walk from San Francisco to Washington, D.C., to push for a bill to give legal status to illegal immigrant college students.

Nico Gonzalez, one of the walkers, says the group will depart from the Golden Gate Bridge on Saturday with the hope of reaching the nation’s capital by Nov. 2.

Gonzalez says the walkers will meet with community groups and give speeches at points along the way.

Over the last two years, illegal immigrant students have publicly revealed their status in rallies and demonstrations across the country to drum up support for the bill and protest against existing immigration policies.

A similar walk was held from Florida to Washington in 2010.

    1. Retired old Guy says:

      “getted mugged”??? You need to go to school…but unlike these students you are NOT ready for college.

      1. Yes says:

        Good one……….Come on “stan” wake up!!!

  3. MAC49 says:

    What part of Illegal Immigrant do they not get, Illegal is illegal. And just who is supporting them and their tuition. Can’t be the US taxpayers. They are disgusting and so are the politicians who allow this to happen. Vote their rotten A$$’s out of office, and when the new elected officials do it vote them out. Career politicians show be outlawed. Two terms MAX! and only one term if they do not listen to the people, TAXPAYERS. Not Dead people, not non citizens, not felons, No one who is not an citizen. Criminals have no rights.

  4. swim says:

    Let them walk all the way! Then when they arrive pack them into a van and deport them.

  5. gna says:

    can’t be very good students if there busy walking

  6. I should have zagged says:

    Can someone check their papers before they illegally walk through the country?

  7. ras says:

    Right turn Clyde

  8. sick of drug dealers says:

    Illegal? Deport them now!!

    Sad to say, 96% of Hispanic students NEVER graduate college…

  9. Doc says:

    It sounds good in theory but if such a bill were to pass, it would make it so every illegal gang banger would take PE at a college and be eligible. The bill would have to be worded very carefully to separate the serious college students and the ones who want to exploit loop holes in order to remain here legally to ply their illicit trades.

    1. Retired old Guy says:

      You are an idiot and don’t know what your talking about. Shut it up lest you embarras your poor Mother.

      1. ................ says:

        Watch an illegal Drunk Roach will hopefully run down these Criminals. Lets hope!

    2. MAC49 says:

      There are laws against illegals but unfortunately they are not enforced, so why make more laws until they enforce the ones already in place. Make librals illegal. break a law in another country while your there legally, see what happens to you and being there illegally, Just bend over and kiss your A$$ good bye. and being incarcerated here is a counrty club compared to other countries. It really doesn’t matter if you kill someone, torture them, rob them, molest them, it does not matter, you have free food t.v. gym, play cards all day and a lot more, Guess what you get in another country, NOT EVEN CLOSE!

      1. Yes says:

        Hey “MAC49” sounds like you were raped by a “Liberal”………..

      2. MAC49 says:

        “Yes” You sound like an Idiot, Pure And Simple! Raped by a Liberal? Where do you get your logic from?………….Wait…. excuse me…. you have no logic nor a brain.Crawl back under your rock.

    It would be interesting to see what would happen if illegal(in Mexico) americans would push for a bill to give legal status to american illegal college students illegally in Mexico. The drug cartel would probably wipe them out steal their I D and start their drug operations here.

  11. judy says:

    Why cant they head South for the summer and take 2 or 3 million with them!!!! Just WHY??? should the American taxpayer support someone who is ILLEGAL and DONT belong in this country to begin with?? Im tired of going into a store and on the overhead speaker is a message in Mexican.THIS is the USA not Mexico!!!!

    1. MAC49 says:

      You must understand, this country used to be by the people, of the people, and for the it is NOT by the people of the people nor for the people it is for who or what ever will line their pockets with that green stuff, not giving one flip about how they are destroying this country. It does not matter how loud we yell, it will never change. MONEY is the bottom line, and its not about the taxayers money, it about how much Money they can get. Vote every single politician out until they start listening to the common , majority, taxpaying public. Not the Big Lobbyist and all the other corrupt people in politics. VOTE THEM ALL OUT AND START NEW WITH COMMON PEOPLE, NOT RICH, ELITE POLITICIANS> and ONLY ALLOW TWO TERMS AND OUT LAW LOBBYIST>

    2. Dee says:

      I totally agree with you on the speaker issue. I hate it every time it happens. I don’t hear Russian on the speakers, and my parents had to come here legally, and pay money to get here. Last I checked we were migrating to The United States of America, not Mexico!!!!!

  12. Fred Garcia says:

    terrorists, plain and simple. invaded the usa. anyone who harbors or allows their stay here is guilty of treason. and since congress delcared war on terrorism and terrorist’s then that means anyone, i mean anyone who does not arrest and depport these folks to their native country is guilty of aiding a terrorist. death penalty case. this includes you , and all the way up. period. no shading. no political mumbo jumbo interetation of blah blah, it is very clear. anyone on this soil whom aids a foreign invader, wether through executive action , or looking the other way is guilty of treason against the people of the united states of america, plain and simple engrish

    Ten Facts about the Nightmare Act [aka Dream Act]:
    1. Nearly all of the publicity attendant to this Act has stressed that it is for “the children” of illegal aliens; but as Senator Sessions stresses, the DREAM Act is NOT limited to children and it will be funded from government taxpayer monies.
    2. It will provide a Safe Harbor for ANY illegal alien, including criminals to keep from being deported just by submitting an application.
    3. It will make certain criminal aliens eligible for Amnesty including alien gang members and aliens with misdemeanor convictions, even DUIs; also aliens who have engaged in voter fraud or unlawfully voted, aliens who have falsely claimed U.S. citizenship, and other abuses.
    4. It will give Illegal Aliens In-State Tuition Benefits.
    5. It does not REQUIRE an Illegal Alien to finish any type of degree program as a condition for Amnesty, meaning they could just start and then quit and still be eligible for Amnesty.
    6. Though there already is a process for Illegal Aliens to obtain citizenship through military service, the DREAM Act does not require that an illegal Alien serve in the military as a condition for amnesty. (They are once again LYING)
    7. Once a Illegal Alien submits an application for the DREAM Act he will be given all the rights that legal immigrants receive, including The Right To Sponsor Their Parents and Extended Family Members for Immigration as well. (Here’s where the numbers will swell to absolute unmanageable numbers of persons and expenses.)

  17. imbrownandworthless says:

    The U.S.A. cannot sustain the burden of caring for all these criminal illegal aliens. They are a deficit when you look at the pros and cons of them being here. They are financially bleeding the U.S.A. dry. Too many anchor babies, too many living off of entitlement programs, too many committing crime. If they are allowed to continue to come here unabated by our government failure office holders, we are doomed to turn into Mexico. That day is not far off. They are breeding like rabbits and taking up residence across the country, not just in border states. We wouldn’t be in a depression if we weren’t being FORCED to care for millions of illegal alien parasites who are too stupid to practice birth control when they know full well that they are unable to support the litters of children that they have and continue to have.

      The state of Alabama knows how to deal with it, They basically chased them all out. Prisoners make great field pickers ! 😉

  18. imbrownandworthless says:

    Here are a few sobering facts:

    in 1996 We Spent about $397 Billion dollars in Welfare and Other Social Services for Illegals
    There are about 5 million children of Illegals in the Public Schools.

    There are 420,137 Illegals in the State of Arizona.

    There are Currently 22,753,048 illegal immigrants in this country in our jails and 740,000 fugitives
    They hold 11,570,070 Skilled jobs in this country.

    The cost in human suffering from murders, rapes, slaughter by drunk Mexicans on our roads and highways, illegals driving with no insurance can’t

    even be calculated. We have 26 million unemployed Americans. Those 11.5 MILLION jobs belong to Americans NOT illegals from Ireland, the Republic of Georgia,

    Philippines, commie China, Mexico or South America.

    I hope his path goes through Alabama because that is where his journey will come to an abrupt end.

      They seem to think the rest of the states are push overs like California…WRONG !

      1. MAC49 says:

        Lets not let your canary mouth overtake, your hummingbird A$$. They will be watched and protected from anyone doing anything. Why do you think they started in California. California paved the way for them. YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK! They are protected in every state, or they would not be outthere walking, flaunting it, and throwing it in our face. So just get a grip on reality.

    2. MAC49 says:

      Dream On! Then you woke up.

      1. nothingchanges says:

        Yes Sir ! 🙂

  20. james peoples says:

    whar part of illegal don”t we the citizens do not understand , as taxe payers sent them back. we need jobs

    1. MAC49 says:

      The citizens are not the problem, it is the POLITICIANS! Why can’t people understand. It is not the citizens. Do you really think working taxpayers like working and supporting their breeding, lazy butts. Well think again… is your libral thinking, U.S. destroying POLITICIANS.
