Wouldn't that be voluntarily "breaking up families?"

They don't want them if they have to support them without food stamps, WIC, Medicaid. When the children become just a burden to them, out the door they go. If they go back home, they would have to work hard to support the children but also many just use these children as a pass around the immigration laws.

Some illegals do love their children and if they return or are returned home do want to take their children home with them. But also many illegals also left children behind when they came over the border to seek out the good life of easy dollars.

Or they believe that there is a better opportunity for a better life if the child stays here in the States rather than in their home country.

That still doesnt answer why so many illegals left family and children behind when they came to the USA and then started a new family.
