U.S.-Born Children Ask for Stop to Deportation of Parents
NBCLA ^ | Feb 17, 2014 | Steven Covelman and John Cádiz Klemack

U.S.-born children of undocumented parents are asking President Barack Obama to stop deporting their mothers and fathers.

Dozens of children, some with their parents and some without, gathered in Van Nuys Monday to urge for the end of deportation while immigration reform is debated. Many wrote letters to the president in the hopes that their messages would reach his desk and move him to act.

Perhaps they should talk to their parents, and encourage their parents to become citizens through legal process.

Send them home with their parents.
We need to put an end to this anchor-baby crap.
The children of diplomats, tourists, and illegal aliens born in the US are not citizens.

Yep. Its why amnesty or any kind of legalization of illegals is a bullet to free America’s brain.

I suppose the children of convicted felons don’t want their parents to go to jail. Break the law, face the music.

Maggie Thatcher reversed the UK equivalent of our current ‘anchor baby’ laws - and she made it retroactive for twenty years.

That’s right, exploit the kids for sympathy points.

They’ll get no sympathy from me. Their parents chose to break the law; they are fully to blame for any problems that result.

Somehow my mother was never targeted for deportation.

Why?

BECAUSE SHE CAME TO THE US THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR, NOT SNEAKING IN THE BACK!!

As we learned during the Elian Gonzalez ordeal, a child belongs with their parents.

I am sorry kids. As a parent, my heart breaks whenever I see the separation of parents and kids. This is the risk your parents took when they crossed the border illegally. Now, they are facing the consequence. There are millions parents, like yours, who wants to live and work in US for their children. Again, like your parents, they want nothing but the best for their family. If the president Obama changes the law for your parents, it would not be fair for other millions of parents who waits patiently and legally. I am sorry kids. This is the reality. Your parents can come back to US if they file the immigration and wait. Your parents are being deported not because they are not hard working loving parents. They must leave the country because they broke the law. One reason your parents decided to come US is this country is strictly governed by the law, unlike some countries. I am sorry kids. I wish you the best and please this situation positively.

Seize the criminal parents’ assets, jail them, deport them and their children.

The parents need to follow the example of Archbishop Jose Gomez and become legal citizens. Then there would be no problem.

Why write to the president? Take the issue up with your parents for putting you into this situation by breaking our laws.

Send them home with their parents, and if they choose not to renounce the US citizenship, then treat them like any other citizen and tax them for all wages earned abroad.

Yep, no sympathy, not anymore.

I used to be sympathetic. Then I realized that, if I were to be convicted of a felony, the court would throw the book at me with no thought whatsoever to fortunes of my wife and children. "Tough noogies. You wanted to play, now you need to pay." would be the response, approximately.

We need clear law that children born in the US to non-citizens do not become US citizens. I recall hearing a discussion years ago on this subject that the law provides for this but has received a faulty court interpretation and needs to go back to the Supremes, or legislation clarifying the language. What say ye???

Misleading headline....they are children of ILLEGALS born while in the U.S. They have NO ties, no Citizenry per a clear reading of the 14th.

Dedication to parents seem to be missing from these “children’. They are not the kind of children my parents taught my brother who was killed in WWII on Okinawa and myself a soldier on Leyte to be as family.

The law (14th amendment) only properly allows automatic citizenship to a child born to citizens or legal immigrants (on a path toward citizenship). Misapplication of the law by awarding tax funded benefits to illegal aliens is the problem. Selective enforcement of the law is common to both political parties. The problem is one of maladministration of benefit programs because of an improper interpretation of terms.

And children of drug dealers want to keep the money. Tough! You’re parents are criminals and you are nothing but a tool for their crime.
