This guy was brought to the US against his will. He has no more ties to Mexico than someone native born does to the foreign homeland of their parents.
He's a citizen of his country, it's language is his mother tongue, his first language. He has every kind of tie to Mexico - and if he murdered someone here, his government will jump to protect him, provide him lawyers. That's a pretty close tie.

Well no, they probably wouldn't. But these are all loose ties when you realize that he's never in his memory lived there but has established himself as a functional member of American society.

If you were revealed to have been born in Denmark, would you be fine with just shipping out, assuming you were solid at speaking Danish?

Yes, even if I wasn't great at the language. Why not? Why wouldn't I want to go learn something of my country, experience it first hand before I made a decision I would despise living there?

Keep in mind you won't be able to come back for 10 years.

Because the decision as to whether or not you're going to live there has already been made for you. You have consistently referred to deportation as a sort of vacation, and now I'm unsure that you even know there's a difference.

There's some twisted logic itt.

So basically what y'all are saying is that if he were an anchor baby everything would be fine and dandy.

Well you are forgetting they are all about upholding the law, except when those activist judges misinterpret important things like the 14th Amendment. They can interpret it better than those guys. By better, I mean interpret it to suit their wishes.

I mean he only robbed the bank to feed the kids so geez we should at least get to keep the money. It's not like that money belonged to anyone...it was just sitting in the bank. I want that money so I should have it.
His parent's came here against their will? What did the kid steal if he is trying to contribute by being a lawyer?

It's not who he is that matters to these people.

It's where the guy happened to be born and how he was brought here. Whether or not he did anything wrong (apparently not going to the border as soon as he's able is doing something wrong too, for some) is beside the point.

There's a reason they don't want him (and others like him) here, and where he was born and how he was brought here is enough to justify that reason (by their reasoning).

His parents should not have been here and he should not have been here.

So they are stealing some American job, or stealing from the tax payer.
