    Just because a child is brought here by a parent has he/she lost his citizenship in his native country? No. He/she can exist there.

    It's a copout to say oh we're hurting these children who were brought here through no fault of their own. That's b.s. families are responsible for their fates. And to reward those families while other families are legally waiting is irresponsible.

    Frankly, it's obvious that Obama created this bleeding heart narrative on the heels of an election b/c who wants to be a hard ass and say fair is fair?

    Sorry dude, but the standard is you're a citizen of your native country and you have to legally apply for citizenship. Just b/c your mommy or daddy broke the law doesn't give you any special rights that others do not have.

    Which should be plainly obvious, even if the leftards are too blinded to see it...

    Look these are the same people that think gun control reduces crime, because crimials obviously follow the law and wouldnt break gun control laws.

    Okay; so we as conservatives agree that it's a copout. But why the disconnect with Republican lawmakers? You guys notice that none of the Republicans are rebuking the Dems with this message?

    Not to mention that they poison those kids against the US when they bring them here. Why do you think they feel insulted when they see an American flag in school?
    Send the little bastards back to where their parents brought them from.

    Not only no rebuke, but proposing similar bullshit legislation.

    Illegal is only illegal when it's not election season, I suppose.

    Why? Because wealthy businessmen like the cheap labor. That, and if they actually did something about it, they wouldn't have a wedge issue to trot out like clockwork every 4 years. If republicans don't want illegals here they should just stop hiring them.

    Since those children have spent so much of their life here, and many of them didn't even know they were not citizens, they should not be forced into a one-size-fits-all solution that is applied to adults. They need to have one tailored to their special circumstances and should be given an opportunity to become citizens by a different path than an adult who comes here illegally.
