My husband wasn't even old enough to walk when his parents crossed the border illegally. I understand how illegal immigration negatively affects our country and we need to secure our border, but what about these children who fall through the cracks? My husband worked hard throughout high school and college. He had to pay double the amount of other college students because he had to pay the out-of-state tuition since he couldn't provide proof of citizenship. All his hard work is yet to pay off due to the fact he can't get a regular job. I don't think he did anything wrong. He grew up in the US just as I did. If I were to take my two year old along while I robbed a bank he wouldn't be charged with the crime when he turned 18. So how does it make sense that children brought here illegally can be charged with that crime when they turn 18? How is it fair to deport someone to a country they don't know?Answer Question

It['s a shame that his parents didn't think of this. Yes, this i one of those things that make you go...aawww poor illegals. But what are we as a nation supposed to do, just open the boarders and say come on in!? It would over whelm us and would be a HUGE security issue! I AM sorry for your DH. It's not his fault. I WOULD be a little aggravated at his parents for their poor fore thought!

Sorry but they have no rights to be here. I think that due to circumstances they should be able to have priority when applying for citizenship but they shouldn't get a free pass because they were brought here as a child. If they are under 18 and the parents are caught here illegally they need to be deported as well.
