There has been countless stories of Illegal Immigrants dying in Iraq for the United States yet the Government deports their families once their time is served or they end up dying. I believe that if you are willing to die for this country, that your family should be granted citizenship. How do you guys feel about this?

I think if you're an illegal immigrant you shouldn't be permitted to serve.

Legitimate source for this claim? If so, please provide the link.

The families are not the ones fighting in Iraq and if they are illegal they should be deported as should all illegal immigrants.

I may have got ahead of myself and reworded everything wrong. The people who are fighting are LEGAL American Citizens, or as racist people would call them, Anchor babies. The parents and families of the soldiers are being deported.

Anchor babies is not a racist term. Deporting the illegal family members is not only the law but it is the right thing to do. Are you against following laws?

So the basic premise for your thread, that illegal immigrant soldiers are fighting and dying in Iraq is incorrect. Since you have subsequently linked to a legitimate issue, I'll keep the thread open, but will change the title to accurately reflect the subject.

I am an American Citizen and I follow the law, just can't be tried as an adult yet since I'm not 18 yet. But I think there should be some kind of pardon to those families and why didn't they deport the families before their son went to Iraq? Why after?

Yes thanks, as stated before I got a little ahead of myself.
