CHILDREN OF ILLEGALS NOT ENTITLED TO SPECIAL TREATMENT. Just because children were brought here years ago illegally do not mean they are entitled to any special treatment. No more than children of military parent ( or chilren of incarcerated criminals) being moved from country to country where ever their parents are stationed are entitled to any special treatment or is traumatized by the moves. Moving to countries where they dont know the language or the culture. Legalization of these children is just an excuse for political reasons, not for any concern for the children. Both, Romney and Obama are using these kids for political reasons. They have family that are citizens and vote as do many of their American born siblings who are of voting age. Political pandering for Hispanic vote by both candidates. Deporting these children in the country illegal back to a country where they already know the language and the culture in not as traumatizing as a Military Brat being moved from country to country for up to 20 years. Which has not been traumatizing but an educational learning experience for them. What is a Military Brat Anyway? The short answer is anyone who grew up in a military family and moved from military installation to installation, with one or both parents being "career" military, serving 10 to 30 years (or more) in the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines or Coast Guard. How Many Military Brats Are There? It is estimated there are somewhere between 9 and 12 million Military Brats. Others estimate there are even more, perhaps as many as 15 million Military Brats living today What is an Overseas Brat? Many Military Brats have the unique opportunity to live in foreign countries with their families and are referred to as "overseas brats". Countries where Military Brats have lived include Taiwan, Japan, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Panama, Guam, France, Greece, Canada, South Korea, Puerto Rico, India, and other countries.
