    it's not their parents fault either. they were put in those circumstances, they moved so that their kids have a better childhood than them, and a brighter future (even though it's away from home!) :(

    And just like their parents, they can enjoy the boot back home.

    yes - it is right and just to visit the sins of the fathers onto the children.

    The child had no say in the matter.

    but they should leave and apply for US citizenship.

    But I would be a lot more comfortable with a remedy that was presented to the people as a law drafted through the normal channels, rather than a mandate.

    A child doesn't get to make his/her own decisions. It is the responsibility of parents to do the right thing and set forth an example.

    I am a compassionate person though, and if I had to face some of the desperate circumstances some parents have to deal with, I don't know what I would do. I might take a risk like that (being an illegal) for the good of my children. I just don't know. I am grateful that I have never been faced with a choice like that.

    PS! Sorry so wordy!

    No, but not being at fault doesn't necessarily mean that the U.S. is obligated to provide them U.S. citizenship. If my parents shoplifted a bicycle for me as a kid, I would not be at fault, but that still doesn't mean I get to keep the bicycle.

    America was built on genocide, rape and the deliberate theft of land, known as Manifest Destiny. Any attempt at "immigration" law is the ultimate hypocrisy.
    (Please excuse the politics, Sister, but this burns me up)

    Yes, as a former colony of the British Empire, we were good students. ;)
    Undoubtedly, there are things my country did in the past that I am not proud of. But I am not sure how that translates into not being able to control who crosses our borders and who we allow to immigrate.

    So if a group of people with superior technology and chemical warfare invade your country, you will accept it as God's plan?

    No. I'm not religious for one, and I admit that what the American people and government did to the natives was wrong. But that doesn't translate into modern immigration policy. This is now history.

    Why is it a fault?
  • Scott 2012/06/15 19:34:00

    Of course not. But that isn't the real question - is it? It feels like you want to go someplace a little different. WHERE COULD THAT BE?
