U.S. Born Children of Undocumented Parents Sue Obama

Univision Online, News report, Posted: Jan 28, 2009

MIAMI -- The lawyers for over 600 American born children filed a lawsuit against President Obama to suspend the deportation of their undocumented parents until there is immigration law reform.

Nora Sandigo, of Nicaraguan origin, is CEO of American Fraternity, a pro immigrant organization based in Miami, filed the lawsuit before the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Children continue to suffer by being separated from their parents because of deportations that the President may be able to suspend." Sandigo asserted. She also explained that filing this law suit is not because she or these children are against him, but to use his authority and urge him to issue an executive order to stop the deportations, and adopt new immigration laws.

This is always going to be a hard situation to face, the day you die america is not going to care if you legal or illegal they are going to burry you 6ft under and charge you $10,000 and up,for dying so we pay the prices regardless. I have yet to see a factory full of full born americans sewing and building away the many furniture and etc... that we use in our daily lives. You bust your butt in working to support yourself and your family in which many of us do the same and at the end of the day many of the family dont even appreciate what you/we do for them. All you hear people talk about oh we paying for there welfare and blah,blah blah your GOING to pay for it one way or another I dont hear anybody complain on how our president wastes over millions and millions of money that us TAX PAYERS pay for there campaign partys and etc... I do believe if ur iilgeagl in this country and you killed , raped or did such a hateful harmful act that they should pay the consequences and be deported to there country. But those that work and bust there butts to make it here to support themselves and there family no I dont think its fair that they are taken away from there family and friends , its just ridicouls to me there have been born us citizens of america who have committed murder and do 5 to life and some of them have a chance to get out and do another harmful act and guess who pays for it we do even the immigrants that work with false documentation pay for it in our taxes when these criminals go to jail.
Victoria, why are you bringing up the what the president wastes or anything else except what the subject matter is about. I have yet to be in any forum where anyone who speaks up for illegal immigrants does not bring up about the money wasted on the Iraq war, on welfare for our own people, yada, yada, yada. Ive got knew for you. We never said we agreed on any waste of any kind. Read the messages in this forum and see where anyone praised waste or wanted more of the same. Stop throwing out distractions and thus avoid giving valid and legitimate reasons why illegal immigrants should get a free pass. We have enough people on welfare ( No, I dont approve of some of the aspects of welfare) and I certainly dont want any more added to the rolls. And you say you have yet to see a factory full of Americans working in factories. Maybe that is because illegal immigrants are working in those jobs. Guess you applies once raids take place? That's right, American Citizens. So stop generalizing. Besides these people cheated to get into this country. Whats so special about them. Do you think cheating all right. You would fit right in on Wall Street.
Bet you, youre a h@ll of a mother.

All of you are criticizing those Americans who want our immigration laws enforced, ask yourself something. Do you honestly think you are the only ones who "want" to be the exception. If we kept making exceptions of those who illegally immigrate here by looking the other way and granting citizenship to them, what do you think we would have in this country. A majority of poor and uneducated people who would add little to nothing to our tax base. And let me ask another question, have any of you seen money growing on trees? I haven't. And all these social programs that illegal immigrants use from our educational to our medical system cost more money than they will "ever" be able to pay in taxes. We would be destroyed if we let all the ones who think they are the "exception" to the rule. Parents make mistake, granted. And sometimes their children pay for those mistakes. Instead of pouring your anger on U.S. citizens and legal residents who are tired of footing the bill, why aren't you criticizing the parents. You're being hypocritical at best.

I think for some of the illegals getting deported the problem here is: 1.)They should have hired a lawyer before they had this problem and done something about it a long time ago. 2.)They can go back to their homeland and begin legal proceedings to become citizens here lawfully.

If the government was doing their job before not as many people would be affected by family breakup, but you can't blame the government for your breaking the law. This seems counterproductive and will only increase the support of our laws. I think it is a futile try to sue the president, but what do I know.

My recommendation would be to keep any legal adult in the US to work, then this person can send money back to support the family, and lawyers fees. Eventually they will get citizenship.

By the way, my wife is about two years away from citizenship. We did things legally, and spent allot of time and money.

to Hernandez_nopalote my heart goes out to you because I am in your exact same situation. My husband is set for his "last" deportation hearing in 2 weeks. As for anyone who can sit there and ever look into the faces of my beautiful children and call them "anchor terds" you seriously need mental help.

It's hard I guess for someone to understand what it means that my family is being torn apart by deportation. I AM an US citizen, I can not just go back to my husbands country with him. I would be the illegal then and two wrongs really dont make a right. We have three children togther and how do you decide who takes the children with them. '

If you have children you will understand that YOU always want to be there with your children to make sure that they are okay and taken care of. So no matter what it causes hard ship. Especially for the children who are not old enough to understand why mommy and daddy have to leave.

As for the ones who say why did you marry an illegal if you knew they where illegal? You can not control Fate and Destiny. It just so happened that the person that I feel in love with, that treated me better than any man I had ever been with before happened to be from a different country. And for that should we be punished? For loving each other?

I cannot agree or disagree I just will provide my humble and respectful opinion for everyone. I do believe the laws should be respected by all of us, but even the lwas has different provisions and consequences, is it too harsh to deport and separate a family? I mean if somoene kills somebody, should they get 1 year or 10 years of separation (or more)Let's review the crime, Ok, someone cross the border illegally (or overstay) to help their own family and to provide a service? should they be separated 1 or 10 years? My case specifically, I overstayed, got an education and work helping single moms (US citizens) moms to become self sufficient and get out of welfare, I was a youth counselor and help kids to get ut of drug abuse and to become productive men of society, I pay all of my taxes for over 14 years I was a very active volunteer in my community and we as a family volunteer many hours for people with disabilities, but I got caught and was deported, now my family came with me, but I have a disabled daugther whom was discriminated because she does not speak spanish (it was hard enough for her to learn english a second language impossible) she is a USA citizen and becuase of lacking of medical services she could die here where I live, So what do I do? I become honorable and obey the laws and let her (a US Citizen) die. It is very easy to talk and presume to be honorable and law abiding citizen when what you are facing des not require an effort to be one. Becasue they are US Citizens we decided one nigth to split the family, my daugther whom does not have the understanding because of her disability ask me every time we speak when will I have dinner with them? It has been almost two years and there is no holiday that I wish just to kill myself to end this pain but I have the hope that one day people will be free at last, I am in a prison because at the end of the day i come home alone and miss them so much. Of course some people are thinking (and ready to reply) I should though about it before overstaying, but we humans make mistakes and other humans give a second chance, that is life as well, Some of the people here whom express their anger toward illegals may have a reason but believe me not every single illegal mean harm to the great people of USA, I am not bitter, as a matter of fact every single time that I can provide a hand to an american tourist here I will do it in a heart beat, because I know another american is doing the same for my wife and my two angels in the US. Hey we are here in this planet for a short period of time, let us be tolerant, let us be patient but most of all let us have mercy for everyone, one day in one r other way we may need someone even an illegal. May the Lord bless and care for every single perosn in US, I ray that his love and peace be vested upon every single persn who posted here.

My heart goes to Andrea, Jr and my beautyful wife.

mira tlacuachote tu apellido lo dice todo so cierra la trompa sonso.

I am a U.S. born citizen and my wife is an illegal Immigrant. Immediatley after we got married we filled papers with INS (the I-130 and I-485). The I-130 was approved but the I-485 was denied. In September 2008 we recieved the deportation notice. My family has fallen victim to deportation hearings. My wife has lived here illegally for 9 years but has never broken any laws and she pays taxes. I am a U.S. citizen by birth and my wife and I have two children who are also U.S. Citizens. The Bush Administration let this happen by not renewing the 245i when it came up for renew in 2001. Keep American Families together.
My Lawyer is doing the best he can to keep my wife here by delaying the hearing. The Deportation hearing is on March 2nd 2009 in Philadelphia. Our lawyer says we don't qualify for any relief from removal. My wife has lived in the U.S. for nine years. My wife has 120 days from the hearing to depart the U.S. (June 2nd 2009).
The odds of my wife being granted approval to return to the U.S. at the interview at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico is not guarenteed. We need to file a waiver with the U.S. Embassy. The typical wait for a waiver to be approved is at least one year. Waiver's are denied more often than not. The ONLY exception to that is if the immigrant or the immigrant's spouse have a medical condition that qualifies as an extreme hardship. A minnimum penalty of at least ten years is imposed before she can apply to reenter the U.S. legally.
How is a husband suppossed to willingly agree to a ten year separation from his wife?
We are in desparate need to talk to anyone in the Obama administration who might be able to help our family stay together.
We have a seven year old son named Jhan and a three month old daughter named Shakira.
We need an immediate moratorium on all deportations that separate families.We need an immediate cancellation of all deportations that separate families until comprehensive immigration reform can be passed by Congress.
I sincerely hope my government does'nt split up my family.

Illegal immigrants should not be deported if they do not have a crimminal record and have children that are American Citizens or a spouse that is an American Citizen and are trying to follow the rules. My wife and I have filed joint tax returns for the past three years. My wife has never broken any laws.
I would pay a monatary penalty to keep my wife here legally. I've paid approximately ten thousand dollars in filling fees and lawyer fees. My wife and I just want to raise a family together. I thought that I had a birth right as an American that I would be able to marry any woman that I loved and live happily together with her.
We have two American Citizen children together. American children should not have to go through the deportation process. It isn't fair to them.
We want a cancellation of deportation order from the president for all families in our situation. If we wait until Congress acts on immigration reform it will be too late for our family. We need an Executive Order from the President.

Immigrants of 120 years before didn't have government here to help their children. My relatives built this nation. It is the new generation illegal immigrant who greedily accepts our social security money to have and support their children. I blame the government more than I blame the illegal aliens, because it's a joke that they actually allow this to happen.

Don't tell us how to run our country. Go back and fix your problems at home.

Accept what you have and make the best of it, and stop depending on others to help you, because this is how the problem has become my problem as a taxpayer. I am forced to pay taxes for someones child, which the parents of these children just dropped on our doorstep to support.

I understand this is a real problem that doesn't come easy, and I feel compassion for these families, it is too bad, but this is life in the third world. Unfortunately over-population leads to this type of situation.

Laws were meant to be followed, for without them we would just be a lawless nation, with lawless people.

To Randy J. God also tell us that we must obey the laws of our land. Anyone that has come into this country illegally has broken those laws. Part of our economic problem is that there is between 12 & 30 MILLION illegals in this country. They are costing us 338.3 BILLION a year. that is coming out of our (the taxpayers) pockets. The leaders of this country take an oath to support the Constitution and protect our land. They have fallen very short on this area, by NOT enforcing our EXISTING immigration laws. In my opinion, they should be charged with treason! I welcome immigrants coming into this country, as long as they follow our laws! We need to stop the leaches from living off us!

Poncho said:"Also, the number of immigrants that are needed deserves a close analysis".I appreciate reading your comments, because they at least have some reason, but our economy doesn't need more laborers, and it would have been better had they not been allowed to work here to begin with. Why? we need jobs now more than ever and they have disappeared because too many labors caused the shortage of labor, and caused the surplus of homes we have now, and don't need.

If you have insurance did you know that insurance doesn't pay for you if you were injured in the commission of a crime. When a parent knowingly crosses the border, breaking our laws what gives them the rights to claim our tax dollars to fund their insurance.

If we had open borders, we could expect a great flood of people, perhaps doubling or tripling our country in 10 years, but who will benefit from this, big business, not the taxpayer, certainly not the middle class or the poor because things will only get worse. For that matter, we could go back in time to the late 1800's where people labored 10-12 hours a day seven days a week for about $3.50 cents an hour compared to today's wages. Do you like how this sounds, because it happened here before.

I think that is VERY doubtful Obama will change anything that helps non-citizens with our tax dollars in this economy. Your best bet was Bush, but last time I checked he was gone.

Am I supposed to feel sorry for a Mexican, when there are many billions of poor in the world just like them? I have NO responsibility for another countries problems and it is none of my business. As a nation we need to stay out of other countries business, and keep them out of ours (as well as our pockets) Don't tell me how to run my country, until then I consider non-citizens trespassers.

I am raising a 11 yr old granddaughter and my other daughter is raising a 2 yr old because their Mother broke the law, buying drugs from an ILLEGAL ALIEN and got hooked, do all you illegals think maybe they might let her out of jail because it is tearing up our home and the children miss their Mother????I doubt it very seriously and she is a legal American. They are also suffering for her breaking the law so why should I feel sorry for you illegals? You broke the law and at least you can still have your children with you . so shut up and take them back home with you.

This is the argument that illegal aliens like to bring up concerning illegal hispanic aliens. I do feel for any child deprived of their parents, BUT the truth is that their parents (illegal aliens) broke into this country and violated federal immigration law. They the parents are to blame, NOT our government or our citizens! What are we to do change the law for each and every criminal who wants to break the law, but have children that depend on them! Please! Come on! Get real!

Might I suggest that these children LEAVE with their parents, as they are not LEGAL themselves. This third world mentality that you somehow have rights is a frace. The parents BROKE the law when they came into this country. And their offspring are ILLEGAL as well. 2 ILLEGALS do not make a LEGAL citizen. Once the 14th amendment is clarified, all children born to ILLEGALS will have to return as well. Just because you were born on American soil, does NOT make you a citizen. That is a grave miscondeption. KEEP UP THE DEPORTATIONS, AND DON'T BREAK UP THE FAMILES. TAKE THEM WITH YOU, AS THEY ARE ILLEGAL AS WELL! GOOD RIDENCE TO A BUNCH OF MISFITS THAT NEVER HAD A RIGHT TO BE HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. This is a nation of laws, and once the parents came into this country, all bets were off, and they should ALL be deported ASAP! Take your money sucking kids who drain taxpayer funds with you. You are not welcome in this country! What kind of parents would leave their children behind in the first place? Third world trash would. What a selfish bunch of misfits and degenerates. Take your men back too, as they are robbing, raping (both adults and children) and killing Americans. ADIOS

Some of you need to get your facts straight! Not always are both parents illegal! I'm married to an illegal and I'm a USC! So therefore our daughter is a USC! My husband went back to his country to fix his status and he has a 10 year bar! So now you are going to say it is ok to tear a family apart between 2 countries because we tried to do the right thing! Why don't you go live in a 3rd World country and see if you like it! My daughter will be part of this lawsuit as well! We are try to reunite our family!

frank bowers on Jan 29, 2009 at 16:26:17 said:

This is the sickest thing I have ever read. The little ones can stay but the criminal illegal aliens got to go when caught if the kids want to stay let the churches that broght thde parents and protected them open a orphan home for the little one. Their parents broke the law by overstasying their visa or coming in the dark of the night. We do not want them nor do we need them send them back with handcuffs and leg chains until at least a mile or so inside mexico they are the responsibility of their native country and not me. I have paid enough in my tax which they pay little of and birth ever 9 months and a day free with many multilple births starting at 12,000 a head and then for 18 ytears we have to feed them, cloth them, house them, and pay for their education as the families do not pay their tax as I am required they claim 8 or 10 children when working so they pay little if any tax and liave like dogs, hogs, pigs, in large houses and pay no tax on it they then breed like rats and mice if not fish thousands and then make my government use my tax dollars for their pleasure, the rape and kill our citizens, they drive int lthe passing lanes under the posted speed limit need I say more. instead they send it back to families down there. lFrank

There are plenty of children that are seperated from their parents because their parents are in jail. Should they be able to file a lawsuit asking their parents be let out of jail so the kids won't be alone??? The is a big crock of crap. When will illegals understand that they can't expect to be rewarded for breaking the law. If they choose to have kids even though they are here illegally and get caught well then it is no one's fault but there own. Hopefully a judge with some common sense will throw this case out.

Janice K. on Jan 29, 2009 at 11:44:14 said:

1) They are NOT "undocumented". They are ILLEGAL!!!!!

2) It's clearly time for the Supreme Court to revisit this issue of automatic citizenship for children born of people ILLEGALLY here. The intent of the law was to make the children of slaves citizens. It was never intended to add millions of family members of people who broke our laws by sneaking into our Nation the honor of citizenship!

LogicalThinking on Jan 29, 2009 at 03:10:19 said:

So, you really expect people to feel sorry for a situation that illegal immigrants freely and willfully created by breaking our immigration laws. I feel sorry for the kids, not the parents. But ultimately it is the children, whether citizen, legal or illegal immigrant who will suffer the ramifications of their parents breaking the law. That's the fact and that's the end of it as far as I am concerned. The kids can receive some kind of aid when they return to their parents country. That's fair to the child. There's no law natural or supernatural that says a child "must" be raised in the country it was born in.

B on Jan 29, 2009 at 02:49:04 said:

Children of criminal parents suffer the consequences of their parents' actions. These children have illegal alien work thieves for parents. When the illegal aliens are deported and their criminal career ended, it is good for the U.S.

These children can go with their parents and live freely in the parents' home country. The children of American citizen criminals only get to see their parents on visiting day at the jail. So, if the point is really that the kids miss their parents, the children of illegals have an advantage over the offspring of American criminals.

Let's see, children of illegal alien work thieves argue their parents should be allowed to stay in the U.S. because they are their parents -- could this kind of emotional blackmail be why they are called anchor babies?

Delaware Bob on Jan 28, 2009 at 21:14:08 said:

This is a CROCK! When an ILLEGAL ALIEN is deported, they can take the ANCHOR BABIES with them. There is no law that says the can't. I believe that this citizenship for the ANCHORS should be revoked, also.

I NEVER could understand how the precious gift of U.S. citizenship could be granted to a baby from a crime that the parent did by entering this Country ILLEGALLY! Talk about reform, let's start here!

Let's hopr that California or Texas can challenge this.

#1. Make Illegal Entry a Felony Permanently Barring Citizenship

Even if this would be reasonable, it wouldn\\\'t be fair to make it retroactive. Felony is a bit too much to say for a bunch of people that came and took over what now is US. Half of it was Mexico anyway.

#2. Secure Our Borders with our National Guard!!!

Secure your borders. With that, I agree.

#3. Mandate E-Verify for ALL Employees!!!

If it\\\'s for everyone, not just for those with different appearance or name, it\\\'s fair.

#4. Cut Off ALL Public Assistance to Illegals and Their Children!!!

That would be against human rights. Even the criminals get assistance in the jail, so this one doesn\\\'t work.

#5. Stop the Underground Economy!!!

Be realistic.

#6. End Birthright Citizenship for Illegals!!!

Nobody can be born illegal. Make sense, please.

#7. End Chain Migration!!!

That\\\'s the way all of your ancestors came in the first place. It\\\'s a natural law and trend. Even butterflies know this. Don\\\'t tell me you don\\\'t get it.

#8. Make English our Official Language!!!

You cannot stop the power of numbers. You can discriminate people who speaks other languages, but if there\\\'s a great amount of people that speaks a different language, they should be included.

#9. Cut Off Federal Funds to Sanctuary Cities!!

What flavor do you want your ice cream to be?

How do you explain this to your wife? Don't worry. Women are smart enough to understand things by themselves.

If your wife followed due process, good for her! Let her decide if she wants to be offended or not. It's not your job.

Geographic convenience doesn't make things better or worse, just makes things possible.
It's senseless to talk about geographic fairness. Do you mean that Asians, Africans, and Europeans deserve to be as geographically close as Mexico and Canada? Please, make sense.

The illegal immigrants are illegal. We agree on that. The thing is that the American system and the people let all of this happen, and now is time to deal with the issue as it is.

It's not about a break. It's about the consequences of any action and even of no action. I agree that prevention is part of the solution to the problem of illegal immigration. Also, the number of immigrants that are needed deserves a close analysis. The thing is what to do with the illegal immigrants that are already there without causing more tragedies, violations of human rights, and financial hardship for both, the ones that are deported and the whole people of USA because, want it or not, losing those workers that work for cheap and the business not selling all what they sell to them is going to affect the economy seriously. Big businesses are going to collapse.

Forgive and forget is not the best long-term solution. Prosecuting, chasing, and deporting people without regard for consequences other than just not have them in US territory is also not the right solution.

Believe me, both positions forgive and forget and just deport them, none of them work.

David B, it really doesnt matter how your wife feels about it. Why is how long she waited in line or had a vaccination a salient argument against bringing people into the law and the light? They are already working here, living here, often with children who are legal citizens of the US! So let me ask you: What will your wife tell those children when their parents are arrested and put in detention? Anyway, many of these people went through harrowing journeys and took terrible risks and suffered a lot on the trip to get here. Do you and your wife really want to make this about who was put out more to reach for the American Dream?

The law that is on the books changes. Being on the books doesn't make it perfect, doesn\'t make it eternal, and there\'s a lot more paper and ink to make new rules when this set of rules is falling apart and demonstrating its inadequacy to deal with reality.

Obama will take a look at this. It's fair for deportations to wait. After all, this whole thing has been done with such a racial bias that it's important having a more diverse team look at it.

You know some of you people need to learn how to shut your holes. To talk about children like their anchor babies or brats that is just rediculous. Just because some of you discusting people are racist doesn't mean those innocent children have to suffer. Would you want to hear people talk crap about your children. Of course not you would be furious! And wouldn't you do anything for your children to give them a better life. If you say no then your either a lier or sorry excuse for a parent. Another thing have you ever gone to mexico? I bet if you went to mexico and see how those people live then you would understand why they come here for a better life. I vacationed in mexico and it made me sad to see how them people live. Me as a parent would do anything for my children! Some of you people need a reality check. You don't know how good you have it until you see how some other countries live. So show some RESPECT for every human being who is american, black and hispanic! And leave the children alone!

HATERS .. by the way i lot of us who were onces immigrants VOTED FOR OBAMA .. HE WILL BRING THE CHANGE ...

David B on Jan 28, 2009 at 13:05:29 said:

OK, so what I see here is a lot of people speaking with their emotions and not using a sound reasoning process.

All you folks who think we ought to just legalize the millions of people who came here illegally, let me ask you this:

How do I explain this to my wife, who waited and waited, paid her money again and again, subjected herself to fairly invasive medical exams and a series of immunizations she didn't need (because she already had them), and never considered trying to come here illegally?
There is no way to explain it. It's a slap in her face to see a huge number of people just get amnesty, and that what it is, when she did it properly. Even worse, due to goegraphic convenience, the vast majority of people who benefit are on predominately Hispanic. How is that fair to the Asians, Africans, and Europeons who want just as badly to have this "better life" so many of you speak about?
Amnesty is not the answer.

Finally, there is no way anyone can honestly say that giving a "break" or amnesty, or some kind of special treatment to the millions alread here won't immediately result in a giant wave of new illegal immigrants showing up waiting for thier turn at whatever we want to call this free ride.

Where does it end? There is a right way to do this. Yes we need immigrants, for both the richness they add to our society, and for the jobs they perform that admittedly, many Americans don't want to do. On the other hand, we can only take so many at a time. These people need time to assimilate. Our country needs time to find a state of equilibrium.

So while I agree that this is a tough situation, the easy answer (to just forgive and forget) is not the best long term solution. Sometimes the hard way is the best way and in this situation it's really the only viable way.

Thanks for giving me my time to share my 2 cents worth.

Think again!
Bush also supported immigration big time!
And we left you lefties and sorry illegals

The arrogance and brazen attitude of these illegal aliens and those who support them is one of the main reasons Americans are so determined to get them out of our country.

LaRaza, American (!?) Fraternity and other such groups, combined with immigration attorneys, use the illegals as cash cows. Without them they would not have a job nor receive a salary, which is paid for by our tax dollars.

These anti-Americans are creating anarchy in our country and their main goal is to turn the U.S. into a mirror image of the third world countries from which they came. By protecting the parents, these groups are guilty of violating federal law by aiding and abetting illegal aliens. It's time we sued/prosecuted them.

June on Jan 28, 2009 at 11:51:48 said:

There is no law that keeps the children of illegals here. No one wants to see you separated from your parents, so please feel free to leave with your parents.. They are the cause of this by coming here having anchor babies. Would Mexico stand for this? No! You children can blame your parents for doing this. If you are illegal, you must leave. And don't let your parents tell you it's not a crime to break into this country. It is our home, so they broke into the place we live. In your country, nothing much seems a crime, but welcome to the real world.

LadyM on Jan 28, 2009 at 11:36:14 said:

How about the American citizens and legal immigrants sue Obama for allowing this invasion to continue. This is just another attempt by the Pro Illegal/Open Border traitors of this country to try to over rule our laws. If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. It's that simple. The parents knew full well when they came here they were breaking the law. Ship them home and if the kids are under 18 send them with their parents. If they're over 18 let them decide where they want to be.

The 14th amendment needs to be repealed. Automatic citizenship is a gross misinterpretation. If it was allowed to be voted on by us citizens, it would be repealed in a landslide. It was drafted for citizenship of freed slaves, not illegal aliens and their anchor babies a century later. We are only one of a few countries who still allow this.

Plenty of people break laws to give themselves and their kids a better life--and go to prison for it. If you\'re really concerned about your kids, you don\'t break the law. And if you\'re really concerned about your family, you don\'t have kids while you\'re here illegally, you don\'t have kids you can\'t afford to support, and you don\'t leave kids behind in your home country as many illegal aliens do. If you\'re here illegally and do have U.S. born kids (or even some who are here illegally) then you\'d better make plans for them in the event you\'re deported. Their future is YOUR responsibility, not OURS.

This ploy, by criminal aliens and their supporters, will also fail. This is yet another example of and proof that these people think there is, or should be, a Hispanic/Latino exception to the law.

May be they shoul give up the children for adoption. My Son and Pureto Rican daughter-in-law have been trying to adopt. They are able to provide a better life and future for a child than any criminal alien couple that has no respect for our laws.

Rachel on Jan 28, 2009 at 10:21:15 said:

Unfortunately it is the fault of the parents that the children suffer. The parents chose to come here violating the law, they chose to stay here violating the law, they chose to work here violating the law...nobody is to blame here but the parents. Now they have the unmitigated gall to claim that since they managed to have a child on US soil they should be granted special consideration and allowed to stay here even though they weren't supposed to be here in the first place?! Unbelievable!

We do not let criminals out of prison just because they may have children that need or want them at home, and this is no different from the situation mentioned above. If they are good parents, they will take their children with them when they leave.

My reading of our constitution does not give children of illegal aliens born here citizenship unless they are black slaves being repatriotated after the civil war during reconstruction. Our laws state that the child is a ward of the parent and wherever the parent goes, the child follows. When the child becomes of legal age, the once child now a so-called citizen can claim their rightful place in American society. This is just a ploy used by the "open borders bundists" to legitimate their lawlessness and actions. We in this country believe you don't benefit from a crime or an illegal act, this goes for all the illegal aliens who come here for the golden key only to lay the egg of assumed citizenship for their offspring.

It's time for us to be united, and build this great nation. Stop the hate and rhetorics and lets get serious about immigration reform.

You are absolutely one of these anti immigrant groups who are greed and doesn't want to share a piece of the pie. know this: wether your wife is an immigrant or not yo don't have to judge a certain group of people just because of their immigration status. The immigration system has to be change because it doesn't work first hand. It is really frustrating for these people, because it doesn't works.

to anyone that say that children are used as a way to stay United States, you cant be more wrong. No one is planning to have a family for the sake of getting documents. Life goes on, whether you have papers are not. It's time for bold action for immigration reform. Just as it is for economy, these parents will one day become citizen of USA. Question is why would you separate families and cause suffering?!

David B on Jan 28, 2009 at 08:08:06 said:

How ridiculous!!
No one said these families have to be "torn apart", or that the children need to "suffer". What you have here is a bunch of people who broke the law and are paying the consequenses. That's how the law works.

If these parents were to actually allow themselves to be deported and NOT take their children with them, then they would be unfit to be a parent. The answer is simple... leave the country, take your "American born" children with you, and if they want to return later in life they certainly can.

It's time for every illegal immigrant to stop using their kids in this manner. It's time for us to get serious about immigration and enforce the law.

Before anyone calls me a hater, know this: My wife is an immigrant, a LEGAL immigrant. We know how the immigration system works firsthand. Yes, it's frustrating, but it works.
