You'd think their own countries would want them back if losing them would lose money.

Mexico is doing quite well without them.

MOST??? Please provide several of those links that prove time and time again that MOST illegals pay the taxes you mention, along with federal and state taxes. I know they pay sales tax because it can't be avoided. I'm very curious about the proof that you will provide.

The parents should have thought about the childrens future before bringing them over the border. More than likely the thinking was "some day they will give us amnesty". Or, "when you grow up you can marry an American citizen and become legal".

One can only realize the American Dream if they are a citizen. Their children were brought into the country illegally.

Uhmm I think you meant to say that some pay all their taxes. Not most certainly not all.
Sense of entitlment? Lets see here illegally and expect no consequences. Here committing fraud and no consequences. Then expect to be treated like those who entered legally. I would say they have a huge sense of entitlment.
How they do in school is less than relevent. What is relevent is their legal status.

Would you work for slave like wages? I know I wouldn't. Either these farmers can pay a decent wage that attracts legal workers or they should fail.

Not true, sorry, most illegals do not pay their fair share of taxes and this was told to me in 2010 while having a huge remodel, additions done to our home.

Contractor hired some illegals, long story short, then i found out, and their ass-- were gone, or i would make the proper phone calls.

Really, i was told to my white face, that they are hired by a lot of contractors thruout this Country, painters, journeyman, handymen, roofers, framers, etc i can go on.
I was told to my face, by more then one of them, that they are hired, to save the contrator money. And also told they do not pay taxes, which pissed me the hell off. I did make a phone call at that point, what ened up happening with these men, i do not know, i did give their names as i knew them to be.

They are ripping the system, any way they can, do not think they all pay their fair share of taxes, cause that is a lie.
And they rent, and he even told me how many people are living in one home, apartment. And that they send the money they make back home to Mexico, i kid you not. This happened in 2010/ and still pisses me the hell off.
And to boot, they do a shi-- job at what they do, crappy. Children could do better them they did.
I know of anyone who i may suspect is an illegal working, i make a phone call, don't like it, don't take the job.

Could you please point out in the article where illegals threatened criminal actions against citizens? I don't see it. It appears to me there is either some reading comprehension issues or outright dishonesty going on with your claim.

What is the threat?
1. They will kill legal citizens? Check they do this already.
2. They will steal from citizens? Yep they do it already.
3. They will break more of our laws? Trifecta..
Nothing changes.

And this is exactly my point. We've invested a ton of $$$ in grade school education just to deny them when they try to enter the U.S. workforce.

We need to cut this sh*t out!

Either fix this f-up system, or deny them ALL education benefits entirely. No need to spread any type of false hope. There is no easy answer to this problem, at least not one that will make everyone happy. It all has to start somewhere. I feel bad for the kids, but the bottom line is that their illegal parents set them up for disaster.

I am still in contact with two friends that I went to high school with that have been deported for many years (we are all in our late 30's). One is in El Salvador, one in Mexico. They both came here as children with their illegal parents and siblings, who interestingly enough are all still living in the U.S. I feel for them, but the laws are the laws. They are victims of circumstance. When you talk to them, they speak perfect english with little accent. Yet their parents that are here are still non fluent and illiterate.
