BTW, Tancredo addressed the children of illegal aliens. He said children DO have US citizenship under current law but kids would go with parents if they are deported. Once 18, children could claim citizenship since they would no longer be minors.
Not sure if I like that or how it would work, but it has been discussed to some degree.
I think that is similar to how it works in Britain. I seem to remember a case where the child could have remained but the parents had to go. Of course the child went with them as they did not want to leave her behind.
The children are pawns in this battle. My Niece goes to an A+ Elementary School in SW Florida, and they recently had a Heritage day at the School where the Children had to bring something to eat or "show and Tell" about their Ancestry, with very few exceptions these Children all told of "Walking across the Desert" to America. That says that all these children are illegal, and nobody in charge in ICE is doing anything about this. I could go on all day about what the ICE and the Police are told to ignore. The problem has to be solved and I am glad that GWB is doing something,but we have to make sure that our Congressmen know we will not stand by and watch Amnesty become law. Wow, am I ever behind today..
