The single father of a 5-year-old special-needs child who died in the care of an uncle said he recently had become concerned about his daughter's welfare and was planning to bring her back to Hawai'i when he got the call about her death.

Since she was in process of entering college I am compelled to believe she was aware she would have to lie about citizenship, or consider how to become a legal citizen, she could have applied for that at 18, then 5 yrs later become a citizen.
At what point does she stop living a lie, and begin to fix that? After college? During that time she would continue to drive with no legality, when she does get out of college, what now? (and it's a bit of a stretch to think she had to know all the laws regarding her situation simply because she was in college. There are plenty of people with doctorates who don't understand law. )
She still could not legally even produce an identification. How smart is that?
I would like to hear from any of you who disagree, and please, tell what you think is the answer to fix this, this girl is certainly not the only one doing this, but what is the answer? Do you think it should be ok for the children of illegal aliens to make some kind of application for citizenship when they arrive or are born? There has to be acountabilty. What are your suggestions ?

Actually that is part of what an immigration judge does. He looks over the case and weighs the circumstances in the case and decides what is the best action.
