Children are innocent in all this. They deserve a chance to gain citizenship. Many of the families are living countries to come to America for a better life or chance for their children. You can not fault anyone who wants to do the best for their family. On a side note, a former student of mine, who was born here (his parents came here from Mexico—LEGALLY), went down to Mexico with his mom, who was renewing her visa as she is working on citizenship and the US will not let them come back. The father is here (again LEGALLY), and has not seen his family for 9+ months. Here is a family being punished for doing things legally. Our state reps do not give a crap and will do nothing to help. The gop is very clear they do not care about immigrants from certain parts of the world.
