News travels fast about the US welcoming illegals with open arms.
Children, some as young as 6 crossing the border without parents.

Surge of children crowding immigration courts
Immigration courts in this South Texas border town and across the country are confronting an unexpected surge of children, some of them barely school age, who traveled here without parents and were caught as they tried to cross illegally into the United States.
..
The rush of young illegal border crossers began last fall but picked up speed this year, according to official figures. From October through July, the authorities detained 21,842 unaccompanied minors, most at the Southwest border, a 48 percent increase over a year earlier.

Those who abandon their children are such a greedy, selfish pathetic bunch of people. I guess it's better to leave behind the worthless ones and come to the US and have babies that are the equivalent of a winning lotto ticket.

And what we get fed in the MSM is "don't separate the families" when articles on deportation hit the headlines.

Who would leave a 1 year old in Mexico and come live in the US for 5 years before trying to get them here ? And then, when that 6 year old gets caught and put in detention not show up because they are illegal ?

That is deplorable. That was the feature picture today in the NYT story.

They are -- but don't worry, the rest of the extended family plans on joining with the child once it's convenient. They all know that the children will be given work visas and the bleeding hearts will insist that innocent children can never be deported.

I guess these kids will join the millions of others who came here "through no fault of their own."

We can expect many more to come to take advantage of Obama's deferred action. The document forgers are loving this.

Many seem to be ignoring that in order to get this deferred action one must be in the country for at least 5 years.

I guess as long as they are not felons then they can stay. And if minors the state will take care of them until they turn 18.

I don't think they're ignoring the requirements. I think they know they can easily get fake documents to "prove" they have been here 5 years. It won't be verified, so many will fall through the cracks, including gangbangers, cartel members, and other miscreants. DACA is ripe for fraud, and DHS knows it.

These people are selfish, greedy and need to be found and sterilized when they do something this heinous. Just think we now have millions of them who have given birth to "American born" children. I seriously hope that I am not around to witness the completion of the 3rd world conversion of America.

In the case of the NYT picture, the lawyer representing the child said the parents were in Atlanta but didn't want to go there and be in court because they were here illegally.

How's that for flagrant disregard of our laws on abuse.
