I feel sorry for the people personally, but laws are laws. Abide by them or face the consequences.

Stories like this break my heart and also stiffen my resolve to stand strong in the face of insults hurled at me (e.g. "RACIST!") when I speak out against amnesty or lenience when it comes to illegal immigration.

The fact is that illegal immigration costs us hundreds of millions of dollars, is a public health risk, reduces working opportunities for low-skilled Americans, increases the cost of doing business (because services have to be provided in Spanish as well), and kills and maims hundreds of Americans every year.

They have no right to be here. They need to go. NOW.

Chicago is a bit wild these days as well.

Why did they not petition for Juan to stay based upon his marriage to an American?

A previous order of deportation exists on Juan. He apparently didn't comply.

I wonder if Juan is a licensed electrician? If so, how did he get a license if he's not here legally?

Odd, for centuries the "break up our family" defense hasn't ever been successful in US courts. Suddenly we have discovered a new right the framers intended??

It's not Trumps fault the wife decided to marry and have a child with an illegal alien. That was foolish and irresponsible I hope she learns here lesson and other women heed this warning "if a man illegally crossed the boarder to get here keep your legs crossed." If she kept her knees together she wouldn't have to worry about her family being broken apart.

Wow, what a silly comparison.

It's a perfectly good comparison.

A criminal commits a crime, gets caught and goes to jail. S/he gets separated from his/her family.

What part of "illegal" don't you understand? Illegal aliens break the law when they sneak across the border or overstay a visa. They commit even more crimes while here. It's illegal for them to work but they work anyway. It's illegal to commit ID theft. Also, it's illegal to engage in tax evasion. Yet illegals do both those things.

The rule of law applies to them, too. Why do you think that they somehow deserve to be immune from the consequences of breaking the law? There's nothing special about them---they are lawbreakers. So, when caught, they get deported. No one is stopping them from taking their families with them. In fact, that's what decent parents would do.

My family was "deported" in 1915 from Ellis Island due to illness and I just received the ship manifest in the mail.

They came together and went back together!

Families don't have to be separated!

Unfortunately some illegal aliens have separated citizens and/or legal aliens by murdering them and these families are separated forever!
