Agreed. Many LatAm kids are left behind when a parent or 2 parents do like you said. I say "LatAm" because it's easy to cross the border and MOST illegal aliens are Hispanics.

Exactly. You never hear any moaning and groaning out of the La Raza groups about the remittance families where kids are back in their own country and the parents are living it up 3000 miles away never seeing the kids, or caring much what becomes of them because all they really care about is the Almighty American dollar. Very often the parent packs up to chase the easy dollars never really caring if they ever see their children again. No problem though with the social implications of so many abandoned kids or kids left with elderly relatives who really didn't want to raise them or kids left to be raised on the streets.

Somehow US anchor babies are much more important to La Raza -- it really makes you wonder why.

La Raza doesn't get federal funds for those in other countries.
