Skip to comments.Children Of Immigrants Ask For Halt To Deportation That Splits Families
Posted on 12/09/2011 7:53:09 AM PST by moonshinner_09
Some children didn't write to Santa with their most heartfelt wish this holiday season. Instead, more than 5,000 sent letters to the nation's political leaders, asking them to stop a wave of deportations that is tearing immigrant families apart.
On Thursday, dozens of children brought the letters to President Barack Obama and Congress as part of the "A Wish for the Holidays" campaign, organized by the coalition We Belong Together

who wants to split up families? I want the illegals and their entire family deported !
The kids can go with them.
Why are these kids insisting on staying here, tearing their families apart?
Thanks Newt. Thanks for opening this can of worms.
Well, boo hoo. Shouldn’t have broken the law in the first place!
Same here. Keep the families together, and end the anchor baby program. The law was never meant to be interpreted that way.
The kids are writing to the wrong people. They should be writing to their parents, asking them why they broke the law and came here illegally, thus imposing the risk of deportation on the family and the chance it would be split up? Many, many years ago when my parents were raising me, they taught me two things: first, parents are responsible for their children, when they are children. Second, when the children are grown, they are responsible for themselves. Yet another lesson lost in the swamp of the nanny state.
I know tell me about it. Who is asking them to stay? Who asked them to commit a crime in the first place? If I commit a crime I don’t want the judge to send me to jail because it would split my family. Chaaa right.
Who cares. Until the border is shut down they will be back in a couple of months. This is the point Perry has been trying to make. Shut down the border, then when you deport they will stay deported. I know a guy who was deported and was back in a couple weeks. I thought WTF?
The kids can go home to beautiful central america with their parenrs...voila, no split families!
I love a happy ending!
Maybe they can ride on Santa’s sleigh operated by Janet Napolitano, who put the “Ho” in Homeland Security
“Until the border is shut down they will be back in a couple of months. This is the point Perry has been trying to make. Shut down the border, then when you deport they will stay deported.”
Or you could brand them on the cheek and make it legal to shoot anyone with a branded cheek.
Why can’t the kids go with the parents? I can’t imagine that my folks would have allowed our family to seperated in a similar circumstance.
That's the way!
Perry?!!! ROFLMAO!!! He wants them illegal lil’ angels to all get a Texas sized college education, the damned fraud.
Why is it bad to split families to deport them, but it was just fine when they split up their family VOLUNTARILY when they left their home country to come here?
Agreed! I don’t think anyone wants to split up the families. That would be heartless!
:) ‘Morning, Old Sarge.
They can always go “home” with their law breaking parents
You can use this same logic to argue againt sending convicted felons to prison. “Don’t send my car jacking papa to jail! It will split up our family!”
Newt and Mitt really the frauds. So now what?
Perry is the only one even saying "secure the border" and if you look at the poll numbers, people believe him over the others. As a matter of fact that is his strongest asset, so you and your crazy minions are in the very small minority.
By the way, Ron Paul is a crazy ass old anti Semite.
You have to wonder what are their parents & this group actually telling these kids ?It is like they brainwash them, to believe all their problems result from Americans,racist attitude towards illegals, therefore the parents and the kids are victims of bad Immigration laws.
You can only imagine what kind of attitude these kids will have towards this county later in life when they are older and mature.
I propose the ‘keeping immigrant families together Act’ that stops the government from granting citizenship to children of illegals. That policy of making them Americans automatically is obviously cruel.
Yeah, the 97% of heartless conservatives are a marginalized minority only in Perryworld. That must be some good drugs Team Perry is handing out in the Jim Jones kool aid tent.
Did you know there are liberals who whine about American white couples adopting children from other countries because it "deprives ethnic children of their heritage"?
Aren't illegal aliens taking advantage of the American practice of granting citizenship to children born here doing the same?
Get over it. Time to move on. You have milked the "don't have a heart" statement for months now and that teet is all dried up. Move on.
Hey TADSLOS, did you catch Perrys new ad on Ytube ?What he says in the ad
The transcript of the 30-second spot, which is titled Strong:
Im not ashamed to admit that Im a Christian, but you dont need to be in the pew every Sunday to know theres something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids cant openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.
As president, Ill end Obamas war on religion. And Ill fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage.
Faith made America strong. It can make her strong again.
Im Rick Perry and I approve this message. in his ad he has Jesus appear and he is talking to him...
I think Team Perry is on something much stronger than kool aid Here @....The original ad:http://blog.chron.com/rickperry/2011/12/using-youtube-perry-proves-to-be-all-thumbs/
Apparantly illegal aliens don’t love their children enough to take them when they go.
Thank you so much for what you said. I am so sick of the hate on here for Perry.
They are not ‘immigrant’ families. They are a mixture of ‘citizen’ and illegal alien families. These children were conceived to garner the largesse and benefits-without-work that this country offers. If it were up to me, these ‘citizens’ would be deported along with their illegal parents and their ‘citizenship’ revoked. WE DO NOT NEED THESE PEOPLE.
Only five thousand letters. I would have thought the coalition We Belong Together would have been able to do better then that. /sarc
When is pious Rick going to “come to Jesus” over engaging in Texas sized insider graft and cronyism? When Rick is finally forced to slink back to Texas with his tail between his legs, he can spend his time explaining to Texans where hundreds of millions of their tax money went supporting his cronies and political appointees.
Agreed — deport the whole group.
