It's not Trump's fault their kids are worried it's their fault!


Mother's Day means kisses and flowers and schmaltzy cards - in any language.

But for some immigrant moms, this Mother's Day is bittersweet.

With President Donald Trump's call for tightened immigration enforcement, mothers who are in the country illegally have something else to think about: Who will take care of their children if they're deported?

Many parents are taking steps for Plan B, what they once deemed the unthinkable, drawing up documents that will ensure their children have legal guardians in the United States in case they're deported.

Parents who are undocumented immigrants say they have no choice but to have these kinds of conversation with their children: Don't open the door. Don't answer questions. Assert your constitutional rights. And if Mom and Dad are deported, here's what to do.

"My daughter cries when we talk about the possibility of leaving. 'No, mami, I don't want you to go,' she cries," said Mireya, a San Bernardino mom of three.

For undocumented immigrants, Mother’s Day raises painful thoughts, plans
I was not with my mom on Mothers Day and we came here legally. I get the feeling that I should start screaming and demanding some sympathy from I don't know who for our own decision to come here and break up the family. I consider my mom also part of my family.

Anyone feeling sorry for me? I hope not as it is ridiculous to even ask for that as we made our own decision to come her LEGALLY and part of that decision is that not the entire family moved here but just we as parents and our kids. We never got anchor babies as we felt we rather do it the legal way and not how some people were telling us would secure for sure a path to a green card.

What a dumb statement of illegal aliens and their crazy supporters.

Illegals can go back to stay together and take their supporters and lawyers with them and start from abroad to discuss and apply and pay fees.

We paid all the fees while illegals never paid one fee.

I am tired of reading about these poor mothers who may get deported. No Plan B necessary: Take your kids with you!

Hey, where are the fathers of all these children? They have a responsibility to support their offspring instead of the US taxpayer.

I couldn't stand to be separated from my three cats, much less children. Seems to me that giving birth to an anchor and not taking the anchor when deported is child abuse.

Got to love that Trump hypocrisy. He'll deport illegal immigrants all day long but when the FBI investigator is investigating HIM for far more serious crimes, he fires him (and two others) in a failed attempt to block it. He can dish it out but he can't take it, apparently.
