They've already lived their childhoods in another country. And since their parents are here illegally and subject deportation, this would keep families together.

Just having more consumers isn't the key to prosperity. If this were true, India and China would be richer than Austria, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, and other low population countries.

With your thought process we should reward all law breakers with "kindness" instead of justice. It matters not that many were brought here by their parents. Rewarding these DACAs by allowing them to remain here rewards their law breaking parents.


This country has gone down hill since Trump took over? WTH are you talking about?
If we owed kindness to our own citizens then we would institute a universal healthcare system that would cover each of those citizens in the US. We wouldn't try to kick our poor and elderly into the streets by gutting Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

If we owed kindness to our own citizens we'd strive to improve, not decimate, our public schools so children of all income levels can have an equal shot at a decent education.

Your words are hollow, Oldglory.

If we cannot get a handle on illegal immigration then we should shut down the amount of legal immigrants from these countries until they cooperate.

A wall is not required to do that.

Many were only infants in the old country. But most have assimilated and behave and feel they are Americans. And note many will have younger siblings who will not go back even if the family is forced out.

I wish. You can't support immigration and then pretend that changing countries is a great hardship.
