Deported to Mexico, a father awaits custody hearing - latimes.com

Marie has told Felipe she wants to join him in Tamaulipas. But he has doubts. Through all of her many struggles, there's been an American safety net to catch her when she fell. "They don't give you nothing for free over here," he said of Mexico. "I don't think she'd last here for two or three days."

Take the kids away and adopt them out to American families. Neither parent is any good. The mom's a nut case and the father's an illegal alien.

I see absolutely no reason not to let the father have his kids. Supposedly life in rural Mexico produces a superior kind of worker, and the family values are much boasted of. Money isn't everything.

The mother is a basket case who lost custody of her other child, the father is willing to work to provide for them, he's a much better example.

I really can't see why custody would be denied to a parent simply because they are back in their own country.

All perfectly valid points. In fact I would ass just 1 more. According to some the USA is a very bad influence on the children of illegals. In fact some claim illeagals lower our crime. Mexico acctounts for over half of all illegals. Mexico must be the most safe country on earth.

I agree, after all if the father would have never been here in the 1st place, then those children would have never been born. adopting them out if the mother is found unfit by a court is the right thing to do.


he says that he has no criminal record, well he was here illegally and that sounds like a criminal to me.

The kids should be given to their fsther. If left here, chances are they won't be adopted, but end up in foster care. Why is it when someone is deported, and they choose to leave their children behind, we're 'tearing families apart,' but in this case, which would more readily fit that description, it's ok?

guess you did not read the story? the foster parents are the ones wanting to adopt them.

That complicates the case. It depends on how bonded the kids have become to their foster parents and the reasons the illegal didn't take the kids home with him in the first place.

If an illegal lays around 3 or 4 years before deciding he wants his kids, then it is different. Or if an illegal had the choice of voluntary departure and took it versus choosing to fight a deportation and have the kids end up in foster care it should make a difference in the case.

No, I didn't read that, only that the mother is unfit, and their father is fighting to gain custody. I'm still in favor of the father having them. Think back to when you were young. Would you rather move to another country with your parent, or stay behind to be adopted? When they become of age, they can return to this country if they want to. I'm in favor of all illegal aliens taking their children with them when they get deported, unless there's child abuse involved.

Also, the father knew he could be deported and that his kids could be taken from him and didn't make any effort to return home before that happened. Illegals can choose to take their families home with them rather than wait until they are caught and then deported which often means the kids go to foster homes and the illegal to a INS holding center. They do have a choice.
