Citizenship is not justice, by any means. Seeking asylum is a dangerous path in itself, which is why current international law allows you the ability to seek asylum in the first safe country you come to contact. Asylum seeking is not a trip to McDonald’s and you get to choose from a menu. If you life is in danger, you take the first available. From this point you would be allowed to seek citizenship in other countries by following the rules and process for that country. Criminals are separated from their families everyday, this is not new. Neither is the law stating entering the United States illegally is a crime. Granting citizenship to those who are separated because they broke the law sends a message of protection first to the immigrant then the citizens, after they pay for it all. How can congress not see the loophole it will create by implementing such a devious plan, when congress is avid about closing loopholes. This loophole will be the size of our southern border and have a welcome mat. Your tax dollars will fund this measure while your benefits of being a citizen deteriorate.
