Here is an excellent example of laws working very well when they are enforced:

A mother's journey: Family reunited in Juárez after deportation threatens to keep them apart - El Paso Times

A very happy story, the illegal mother actually wanted her children in this case. They were able to reunite with her back in her country.

Not last year. In August 2010, their mother Antonia Campos was deported to Mexico after living 17 years in the United States as an undocumented immigrant. Her five children, all U.S. citizens and between the ages of 7 and 15, lived in foster homes in El Paso until last July, when Campos succeeded in regaining custody of them.



The US born children ARE allowed to go to school in Mexico as this case shows. The sad thing though is apparently NONE of the fathers of those 5 kids are helping out so it's more difficult for the single mother to support those children she had here in the USA and feed them without all the food stamps, WIC and free housing. In Mexico they have to work for their living.

Just think, without uncontrolled breeding these people would have a much easier life no matter where they live.
