Good article; I make a lot of the same points myself when discussing this with others.

Adults have the obligation to do the right thing, even if their parents have done the wrong thing.
I agree. Just because your parents made THE LAW doesn't mean THE LAW is right.

Because your parents broke THE LAW, doesn't mean you should be ABOVE THE LAW.

So perhaps you could point out then what is wrong with our immigration laws other than that we cannot allow in all that want to come here? You can't just break laws because you don't agree with them either.

Just because you disagree with a law doesnt justify breaking the law.

I agree too.

BTW, THE LAW says that people born in the US are citizens regardless of whatever crimes their parents may have committed.

The Dream act does not pertain to anchor children.

I didn't say it did. But your response illustrates why I brought it up. they're not anchor children. They're US citizens. With the same privledges every other US citizen has. That's the law. They're not in some ambiguous middle ground as you'd like to portray them when you use loaded terms like "anchor babies".
