Bob Edwards: Children Without Papers

If you ever doubted that we need to reform the mess called our immigration laws, read Bob Edwards' compelling story about Isabelle Castillo. Brought over illegally by her parents when she was six, she graduated H.S. with a 4.0 and college, sans financial aid, magna cum laude. Now working as a waitress due to her lack of papers, but going public with her call to reform the system.

Frankly, I'd trade half a dozen lazy native sons for every one illegal with an intellect and work ethic like Isabelle's. We would be a better nation for it.
