    Wow! I really want to agree with your statement. The problem is these deported parents know their children are better off in the US without them than they would be in their own country with their parent(s).

    @ir0nw0lfe i see it all another way. they cannot get handout for having kids in mexico like they do here. they do not want to take their kids only do to them having to become real parents and support them like real adults.

    @ir0nw0lfe - Then they need to decide what is best for their situation; because it is widely believed that many illegals have babies here for the sole purpose of establishing anchors (babies) - and that incentive need to be removed. Perhaps the child should be given the same citizenship of its mother.

    I live in Tepic, Mexico (about 850 miles south of the border) and see kids come back with their parents all the time. They adjust and some, when asked, do not plan to go back to the states. They simply have an advantage in Mexico having been educated in the states.
    In fact if Mexico does change for the better it will be because of them!

    This is a classic example of an "Emotional Appeal" that focuses on a symptom. This is what it looks like when government acts. Immigration laws and border enforcement are not pretty operations. They are exercises of Force. What this article is doing is zoom in on what that looks like.

    Government will act with just as much indifference when it comes to saving money under Obamacare. Under Obamacare those decisions will be made by a panel called the Independent Payment (Medicare) Advisory Board (IPAB)... it fits nicely into what Sarah Palin was referring to when she coined the term "death panel."

    There are no "death panels" in the Affordable Care Law....Even, in spite of what Sara Palin says...

    Yes there is. It's called IPAB. I gave you the link to the text of the bill. Didn't you click on it? It's right there in the bill.

    Here's the link again...

    "Death Panel" was just a negative term that Sarah Palin came up with for it before she even knew what it was called. She didn't know what it was called yet because we hadn't had a chance to read the bill. Remember?

    @Bobolinsky ---I read it twice...There are NO "death panels" in The Affordable Care Law.........Here...read this passage from your own citation, that you sent me.---- "..According to official records, the proposals made by IPAB should not include any recommendation to ration health care, raise revenues or increase Medicare beneficiary premiums, increase Medicare beneficiary cost sharing (deductibles, coinsurance, or co-payments), or otherwise restrict benefits or modify eligibility criteria..."

    Using the example given, the father and children should have gone back to the home country with the mother. The mother should apply to live in the US legally if the family wants to come back. Being an illegal alien IS A CRIME people, hence the word illegal. If a US mother committed a crime she would be thrown in jail and thus separated from her children while she is serving time. The family mentioned in the story KNOWINGLY took the risk of having the mother live here illegally. I don't feel sorry for them. Has anyone looked up the penalty for being an illegal alien in other countries? Quoting the Washington Times, " Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals."

    Where? The following is what is used as justification for anchor babies. If you know of something that counters it, please tell me.

    Amendment 14 - Citizenship Rights. Ratified 7/9/1868.

    1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

    @Thunderchicken That was an amendment added because some Chinese boy, whose parents were illegal, was orphaned and had no where to go. As a way to counter it, I dunno.

    @Thunderchicken

    "The phrase "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" was intended to exclude American-born persons from automatic citizenship whose allegiance to the United States was not complete. With illegal aliens who are unlawfully in the United States, their native country has a claim of allegiance on the child. Thus, the completeness of their allegiance to the United States is impaired, which therefore precludes automatic citizenship."

    @AlexanderKM

    The parents were legal, that why he was a citizen.
    "In 1889, the Wong Kim Ark Supreme Court case10,11 once again, in a ruling based strictly on the 14th Amendment, concluded that the status of the parents was crucial in determining the citizenship of the child. The current misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment is based in part upon the presumption that the Wong Kim Ark ruling encompassed illegal aliens. In fact, it did not address the children of illegal aliens and non-immigrant aliens, but rather determined an allegiance for legal immigrant parents based on the meaning of the word domicil(e). Since it is inconceivable that illegal alien parents could have a legal domicile in the United States, the ruling clearly did not extend birthright citizenship to children of illegal alien parents. Indeed, the ruling strengthened the original intent of the 14th Amendment."

    What Happens to Kids Whose Parents Are Deported? Simple, those parents should take their kids with them. When those kids grow up, they are more than welcome to come back. Last I checked, those hospitals do provide paperwork (i.e. birth certificates).

    The immigration system is broken. There is a very easy way to end illegal immigration.
    1. Amnesty for all illegals who pass a background, medical, and security check.
    2. Abolish the quota system and make the only barriers to entry those concerned with making sure the person is not a threat to national security.
    3. Abolish welfare, that way we don't have to worry about whether or not they get jobs we will not be paying for them and if they can't find jobs here they will go back because they won't be able to get welfare.

    My sister is American-born and lives in another country. Legally, I should add. She has 4 kids, 3 of which were born in Europe, 1 was born in the US. She wasn't forced to leave her kid here. She would flip out if her kid had to grow up in the US.

    Wait!
    62K kids lost their parents to deportations, but only 5K of them ended up in foster care??
    Does anyone see a problem with this logic?
  • #42

    We should close down the 14th amendment and that will fix the problem. Then we can deport the children along with the parents.

    This is ridiculous and in reality costs us much more than letting them stay, in many ways. Not to mention the inhumanity of deporting these childrens' parents, in effect creating orphans!

    the kids in the picture look to be playing with the woman pretending to be crying. with that said what has kept those so called parents from taking the kids with them or sending back for them.

    kind of shows the whole thinking of anyone who would just abandon their kids for others to raise. this is why they are called anchors.
    like other enemies we have had here they go using their kids showing they are just pawns for these parents to tug on heart strings of all foolish enough to fall for their lack of love for their own kids.

    That's a hard one.. but if there Illegal should not the children also be held accountable as well.. the children should also go with there parents.

    There needs 2 be a Stipulation added 2 the Constitution for this situation .. if you here Illegally that voids your right 2 be come a Us citizen.
