Yes, she (Megan Macaraeg) is the Organizing Director at the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition...
None of which changes the fact that the father is an illegal immigrant. He willfully violated our immigration laws. There are consequences for violating our laws. It's a shame that so many children get caught in the crossfire, but it is their parents who put the child there.
I believe that the child was used as a pawn by the illegal advocates.

I fail to see how advocating for the enforcement of our immigration laws equates to making fun of this girl and her father but some will say anything to flame along party lines and call those of us for the rule of law all kinds of unwarranted nasty names. They just plain can't be civil because they know they are on the wrong side of this issue.

This article is nothing but a pro-illegal symph piece anyway. Note how those of us for the rule of law are called anti-"immigration" once again? The truth was spoken in a kind way and not mean at all.

DesJarlais responded, “Thank you for being here, and thank you for coming forward and speaking…the answer still kinda remains the same: we have laws and we need to follow those laws, and that’s where we’re at.”
The anti-immigration advocates in the crowd reportedly applauded and cheered in response as Josie took her seat, head down.

If he does not want to be separated from his daughter, he should take her back to El Salvador with him, OR maybe the girl's mother should marry the girl's father (crazy idea, I know). It's easier to be a victim, though.

Agreed tho the girl's mother is a US citizen so the kid can stay here legally but the illegal alien "father" STILL needs to go home.

This is why I hate the GOP, the entire party should never win an election again.

The fact that they laughed and cheered in the face of a little girl who will lose her father is disgusting and classless.

using children for political gain is about as low as you can get.

Why doesn't the family just go to El Salvador? The daughter can return to America once she is an adult.

I see, so this represents the entire Republican party? Are you equally disgusted when many Democrats want illegals deported also? All the sites that reported this incident are leftist sites but you are willing to believe anything they say that they were mocking this girl?
