why limit deportation to illegal immigrants? there are broad categories of people whose deportation would be beneficial to the country. seriously, let's ship them all somewhere else.
Just another example of illegal immigrants being an burden on our education system. And think about all of the money wasted on ESL programs? This, when schools are begging for more money to fund the education of regular students.
Essentially, you are punishing the child for the parent's mistakes, something which is highly uncommon (if not non-existent) in our legal system. Also, at least in the state I'm familiar with, it is a highly uncommon occurence. Anyway, just putting it out there.
Its not just corruption. The US has deliberately created harder economic situations in many countries. Much of the current immigration is linked to NAFTA, a US sponsored treaty. Maybe instead of persecuting people, we should stop screwing around with other countries and then complaining about the results
Even with the U.S. "screwing" around with other countries, there is SO MUCH corruption south of the border. Such corruption (created for and by those governments) is destroying economies and keeping foreign companies from investing in their country. Not to mention that those same governments WANT illegal immigration to continue. They get rid of the poorest, most uneducated, the unemployed, and the indigenous. In return they gain billions of dollars in remitances. This is just another example of the U.S. being blamed for the problems of other countries.
A 1st grader does not wake up in the morning thinking: "I'm going to go to a foreign country to steal and identification and to live off of the tax payers there while living under the radar.".
