cassandrasdaddy, At the meat packing facility... The kid's parents broke the law if they were illegal aliens. Don't blame the government for enforcing the laws these parents broke. My sister takes kids away from their parents all day and puts them in foster homes. Maybe we should stop doing that. Cause taking little Billy from his dad will tramatize him, who cares if Little Billy's father has been buggering him for the past year, you'll be breaking up a family! Let the illegal alien parents explain to their children that they are criminals and broke the law. That they abandoned their children because the consequences of their actions were finally kicking in. I'm surprised a pro RKBA person would make such a emotionally based arguement. Maybe we should only enforce "feel good" and "for the children" laws from now on. Want to ruin your feel good mentality? Go south of the border and meet the women who's husband abandoned them to come work here and send money back. Too often the money quits coming and word gets back that Husband got a new girlfriend in the US. Explain to those children why they don't get a daddy anymore. I've spent a great deal of time south of the border and I came across several families with these situations daily. People would borrow against their home/ or their parents home (from a loan shark) to get money to be smuggled here (in Ecuador the price was about $20,000) When they got here often they'd forget their family and the family would lose their home, their father, and any income. So this is why I'm pro-legal-imigration but will be more than happy to report/deport any and all illegal aliens, and their kids too. Lets redefine the 18th to remove the anchor baby clause, it wasn't meant for that, it was meant for former slaves.
