The law is that those who came here illegally (without inspection from immigration authorities) must be deported. It's true that people who came here as kids didn't do it with criminal or malicious intent. Nevertheless, they are in an illegal status, and Obama's DACA policy was done illegally. It is truly tough for these people, when they,e been here and become accustomed to life in America, but granting them special favors brings up a couple of questions >> 1. What special favors are the kids of AMERICAN criminals being given ? Their parents having been separated from them by incarceration in prisons (some for life; others, the death penalty) 2. What about people who came here illegally as kids, but have been adults now for 10 or 20 years ? Have they sought to become American citizens ? (or chosen to remain in illegal status) If they chose to remain illegal, why should they get favors ?
