Innocent? Not exactly, some are gang members and some are free loaders that don't even qualify:

Gang member facing murder charges was spared deportation under Obama program | Fox News

I imagine if Congress finally agrees on something it would be on the basis if someone qualifies to remain here like someone that has gone through college and can thus get a green card. Thus, coming here young and illegally won't be an automatic free pass.

Actually the total is down from a peak in 2007. And Mexicans are down close to a million.

And at this point over stayers outnumber border crossers.

So as the over stayers are coming in through are airports what is it you are proposing?

You just don't like what I have pointed out and you have opposing views which have been blown into pieces while I quoted the constitution and the rule of law, plain and simple. Everything is spelled out in the constitution and you want to beat around the bush like a wondering madman to further your own pathetic ideology in contrast to the interests of the Republic.

Like I said, move on.......
Blown to pieces. OK sure, go collect your prize. I don't need to move on because thankfully we do follow a process here which doesn't consist of appeasing to the common idiot who thinks he's superior to the rest.

I'm aware that Mexicans are just the face of the issue. People all over the world are coming here and flaunting the immigration laws. I didn't stumble into this thread with a solution. I said that I agree with the children staying. I also said I understand the frustration many have.

I bet you must agree that illegals have the right to vote.

I bet you'd be surprised to hear that I am very anti-illegal immigration, and very much in favor of a merit based system. I'm just not stupid enough to want to chop off my nose to spite my face by deporting young adults that we've already paid to vaccinate, educate, etc.

People that just want to scream " throw them all out!" are black and white thinkers with no nuance. A traight often found in four year olds.

Have a nice day.

Your making assumptions that it's hate. But it's actually compassion that I have for the American people and those who came here legally through our immigration process. Excuses like "it takes too long" "you need money" "it's not fair". Obviously the point is to understand that "Nothing in this World is Free". So we're pretty much saying that we shouldn't hold these parents accountable for their actions coming here illegally and having their kids understand what they did is illegal? No one is above the law and it's part of accountability. It took my grandparents 15 years to make it to America, I've served and deployed for my country (USA). I consider myself American first above all else because being an American is God's greatest privilege to have, so I'm truly grateful. Im for sure that there are many people that feel the same way.
