BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Terrified by Alabama's strict new immigration crackdown, parents living in the state illegally say they are doing something that was unthinkable just days ago -- asking friends, relatives, co-workers and acquaintances to take their children if they're arrested or deported.

I’d fear deportation, too, if I were in a country illegally.

Why is this situation the fault and blame of US citizens and taxpayers? Why are the parents held not held responsible for the situation they caused?

These people weren’t to afraid to have kids OR GET WELFARE were they.

The moment they snuck into this country illegally they knew this would happen. Instead of cleaning-up thier lousy country they come here to mooch and try to change this one.

GET OUT AND TAKE YOUR KIDS WITH YOU. You can be just as useless in Mexico as you are here.

It’s nothing that military personnel with children haven’t done before going to the sandbox. It’s called a DD-357.

I think the intent of this article is to make some of the Republican positions on illegals look, how do you say, oh yes, HEARTLESS, thereby opening the door for an Illegal-coddling governor (or former governor) to take the nomination.

In other words, Cain scares them to DEATH, as he would have them packing in ALL 50 STATES.

What about all the rapists, muggers, and burglars who have to leave their children when they go to jail?

No tears?

Illegal are criminals. They broke the law regardless of what the Libs say. Criminals get what criminals get. That is just the way it is.

If you don’t want trouble then don’t break the law. Simple

But for Maria Patino -- who prays every time she leaves home -- even a chance encounter with police could end with her two elementary-age children being left alone or taken to foster care if she and her husband are sent back to Mexico. Both are in the country illegally and have no friends or relatives close enough to take in the kids.

What kind of mother would want to leave her kids behind?

When these folks came to the USA illegally they should have thought about the consequences.

YOU take care of YOUR kids.

I agree - go home and take your family with you!

Wouldn't it be great if Cain wins the nomination, gets elected and appoints Sarah to AG? Watch out illegals Sarah isn't through yet. As much as I wanted Sarah to run, she is now in a position to accept appointments, such as AG or head of HS, although I would rather see HS disbanded along with the BATFE and the EPA.

These “parents” rolled the dice and came here illegally. They knew there was a possibility of the gravy train ending at least in Alabama over it.

Craps, they lose.

Hell, move to another state, lather, rinse, repeat.

This is just BS. Why do they have to leave their kids here? They are perfectly free to take them with them. If the kids are anchor babies they will still be US citizens and can come back legally when they are grown. Only a heartless a**hat would leave their kids behind. To hear the MSM tell it, they(the illegals) are forced to leave them(their kids) here and that is just BS.

I’d rather see Sarah as Energy Secretary...but won’t complain as long as she gets a high-ranking position. It will certainly be lots of fun.

People who break the law, are scared of the consequences...?

is this something new or improved ? I’m missing the point, somewhere.

With Holder sending 1,000 of guns to Mexico, the children are safer here.

What kind of parents would leave their kids here? If the kids’ parents are Mexicans, Mexico considers the kids Mexican as well. The parents could take the kids with them. Whenthey are old enough, the dual citizen kids can return to live their lives here, if that is their wish.
Alternatively , they could simply move to California, Illinois, New York or some other Democrat “sanctuary state” that welcomes illegals with open arms, doubtless with voter fraud the objective.

This is a phony story crafted to garner sympathy.

That is one thing I had trouble wrapping my mind around with Operation Peter Pan. How much fear would you have to have of your homeland circumstances to consider handing your kids over to total strangers, knowing you would probably never see them again, and in some cases knowing they were so young that they wouldn't even remember you?

Maybe I'm selfish and/or naive but I'm pretty sure that I would have to be dead for someone to take my kid.

Five years ago this article would have started a major flame war here. The unanimity of the ‘tough you are here illegally’ response says something about how opinion has hardened among conservatives on the illegal immigration issue.

If AL and AZ laws are effective, illeglas will migrate to other states, which in time, will have to adopt their own AL style laws to survive. This could end up a states snowball. We may not even need the feds.

I lurked was a long time lurker and do remember a pro illegal supporter by the name of Dane. Is he still around?
It is really hard to believe how little I care about the legal plight of illegal immigrants. My feeling of indifference strengthens when I reflect on the restrictions of immigrants to Mexico.

Yeh its not like you are going to be deported to a strange foreign land. Take your kids with you so they can learn about your culture and meet all of their relatives who didn’t break the law and sneak in here illegally.
