Wasn't arguing with that, and I think the parents should be deported.

I'm just saying the kids should at least have a chance to stay if they really want to.
I disagree. Those children have learned the culture of Mexico and are taught Spanish by their parents. It's not foreign at all. We have enough Mexicans living here where Mexican culture has become a minority culture within in our own country that I am sure they have been exposed to . In fact, I would be willing to bet that they would have aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents still in Mexico.

You would have the minor children of parents here illegally separated from their parents? Why would they stay here if their parents were deported? Even if these kids are citizens of this country they should still leave with their parents and if they wish return here when they have reached adulthood.

No but Mexico's a xenophobic hellhole, the US isn't.

But yeah yeah. I get it. Will stop arguing.
I don't see anything xenophobic about Mexico, the U.S. or any other country enforcing their immigration laws.

But I see your points, I get it.
A 16 year old belongs with his parents, the illegal parents who smuggled him in at age 3 should also be deported and their illegal child should be going home with them.

Don't you believe in keeping families together? Smuggling children in should certainly not be rewarded -- the parents should be going home, not being handed quick easy citizenship for having broken the laws.

Actually illegal entry is way up since January this year.

I don't know what coyote fees are right now, but certainly it's cheap enough to come through without coyotes. You can buy those real laser visas on the streets of any border town for just around $500 -- then walk on over the bridge and return the card and nothing stops you then from being taken to any destination in the USA.

Also it's free to jump aboard a train heading into the US. From what I'm observing, it would be very very easy to hop on a train as it's crossing the border, jump off if you see border agents stop it. All you would need to do is jump off, get past the point where border agents might stop it, then jump back on as it heads it's way west, north, or east. It would be a cheap and easy way to get where you want to go.
