"We" should welcome them as natural born citizens. That was the founders intent.

Lets see the parents made the CHOICE and entered illegally, they made the decision to have the kids.
So parents when deported TAKE THE KIDS WITH THEM since they made the original choices to begin with!!! Seems to follow the pattern of responsiblity to me.

I don't think the legal system can support the forced deportation of natural born American citizens.

And what should we about that pesky little thing called the Constitution? And do you have an age limit in mind for kicking out the so-called anchor babies? If the anchor baby is 46 years old now do they get to stay?

The parents are not responsible people.... not for themselves, and even less so for their offspring. If they are deported, I don't think their children will be an issue due to the low percentage of deportations to squatting illegals.

Keep the kids and boot the parents. Counties and states take kids away from irresponsible parents every day so why should this be different?

I have yet to see ANY evidence that "WE" have any authority over those kids at all.

What were the parents' plans for their US-born kids, in the event that the parents got deported for illegally entering the country?

What did they intend to happen to their kids?

And now that they ARE being deported, what is their decision about their kids?

The latest one comes from situations where a husband and wife from another country, enter the U.S. illegally, and then have one or more babies while they are here. They then get caught by ICE and slated for deportation. The kids they had here, are American citizens as our laws are currently interpreted, and of course the government cannot deport such kids.

Then comes the weirdness: Liberals are demanding, what do "WE" do with those kids?

As mentioned, of course, the government has no power to do anything with those kids... nor should they have. The parents are the ones who will decide what will happen with their own kids, of course, not the government. How could it be otherwise?


Obviously, the choices are (a) the parents take their kids with them when they return to their original country, or (b) the parents leave the kids here, in the country of the kids' citizenship, hopefully with trusted friends, family etc. It's a terrible choice to have to make.

But where do our esteemed brethern of the southpaw persuasion, get the idea that it is "WE" (that's liberal-speak for "the government") who should decide what happens with the kids???

I know that leftists often take the attitude that is Government doesn't do something, nobody will do it. That's weird enough, but at least we're used to it. But this one breaks new ground.

Those parents who entered the country illegally, knew the law called for their deportation, and that it would happen as soon as they were caught. Then, incredibly, they brought children into that world, deliberately and knowingly subjecting those kids to being deprived of either their parents, or the land of their birth and citizenship.

What on Earth possessed those parents, to subject their own children to such a cruel choice? Are these people INHUMAN? How can they do that to their kids?

Now they are stuck with that choice - one they saw coming a long time ago. What are their plans? What did they intend to do with their kids, if/when the law caught up to them as they always knew it might?

The question is not, "What are we going to do with their kids?".

The question is, "What are THEY going to do about THEIR OWN kids?".
This is a typical liberal argument...they appeal to peoples sense of humanity...like with health care...if you were against the bill..then you wanted people to have no health insurance and die...now with immigration anyone who doesn't support the liberal agenda wants to tear families apart and rip children from their parents arms...don't fall for it...

It almost reminds me of terrorists who hide among civilians while shooting at the troops trying to stop their murders. They hope that, if they create a situation where innocents might be accidentally hurt or killed by the troops, this will prevent the troops from shooting back at all.

These illegal-alien advocates seem to be using the children of the illegal aliens, as tools to prevent the govt from deporting the parents at all.
