Naturally, the children of people living in the US illegally cannot be blamed or punished for their parents’ crimes. Those teachers or caregivers who deal with these children on a personal basis must keep this in mind, these children are innocent and need to be protected from the hostility and anger aimed at the law breakers.

I have to admit that not only does the number of illegals in our country, but the advantages they get over many of our citizens and legal aliens. Tollerance is a worthy virtue, but it has been made so easy for many (once they get here) that there is no reason for them not to take the risk. In some states they get free college education, when the legal folks have to pay, and if they are from a different state, they have to pay more. Where’s the equity in that?

I know it sounds like I’m talking out both sides of my mouth, but trust me if I was in Mexico, I would probably run the boarder myself.

Yes, there are many precious children that are here with their parents, however, I think we need to make it tougher to get here and stay illegally. I know what people in Russia have to go through to get here, and they don’t even get the same services that many of the illegals do. Doesn’t seem right.
