lol...no prob. (I read that and re-read that and thought I was losing my mind as that didn't sound like me at all.)   ;D 
 

Wait'll you get to that other thread where you may experience a sudden urge to hang onto your synapses tightly.

As the content of my posts shows, my synapses, (and synopsis), are operating within functional parameters.

Were I agree about the laws needing to be followed and can see the point, I'd like to say I didn't agree with idea of taking people, that have planted their feet firmly on solid ground and spread roots. Up rooting them after so many years seems cruel.



If they're here illegally, (anchor babies or not), being arrested and deported may seem "cruel" however, these are the legal consequences of their choices.

Key word Their choice, what about the legal children they bring into the world, they had no choice, they where born into the world they live in now. Why must they suffer for the sins of their parents?

 I am all for legal immigration. However, if they are here illegally, then they have no regard for our laws, and deserve to be deported, immediately.  If they have no problem breaking one law,what's to stop them from breaking others? As far as undocumented women having babies here, we need to change the law that says, just because you are born here, that you are a citizen.  If the parents are here illegally,then an infant born here, should be seen as illegal as well.  That might help with the stream of pregnant women who come here illegally, just to give birth, and provide their child with U.S. citizenship. Although they(the parent) has made no contribution to the country, except add another person to the American population,expecting the government to support, not only the baby,but the mother as well.

No child has a choice in where they are born; that being wherever the mother happens to be at the time.  That makes such a point a non sequitur. Since parents are nominally responsible for their children, the choice rests with the parents.

I'm basically liberal in my thinking. On this subject, however, I tend to listen to the issues people are facing in the border towns. I think the change in the quality of life in these towns due to the influx of illegal immigrants is representative of the affect of that situation in our country. Although the issues may be more apparent in those locations, the same things are happening in the rest of the country due to this kinds of illegal immigration. It may just not be quite so apparent or visible. Someone earlier said something that made a lot of sense to me. If people come here thinking it's fine to break our laws that somehow that then can set the standard for what kind of citizen they will be.
