    I guess he can adjust his status because he entered the country LEGALLY in the first place.

    I am assuming that you are a U.S. citizen. If you are, then yes, he can Adjust Status.

    Why can someone who comes here on a visa but overstays adjust but someone who comes without inspection can't? Overstaying a visa is just as illegal and entering without inspection. Most of the terrorists entered with visas. I have always despised the race card and think that people play it up too much, etc, but this seems a little fishy to me. I see it as a way to make it harder for Mexicans to get residence. I mean, they are the most likely to enter without inspection, considering they share a border with us. I don't think that INS is being fair by saying that a visa overstayer has more of a right to residence than one who snuck over the border. Duh. Who's going to give a poor Mexican a tourist visa so he can come and overstay. Why not give it to a literate European, so if he does overstay, at least he's white. Just kind of makes me mad.
