    Illegal immigrants prepare to leave kids
    Full story: CBS Atlanta News, Weather, Sports, Traffic - WGCL 46 - Home

    On July 1, law enforcement will begin cracking down on illegal immigrants under Georgia's new immigration law. Some parents are preparing to leave their kids behind. Our Lady of the Americas Catholic Mission in Lilburn has a Hispanic congregation. Most of the children were born in the U.S. and are U.S. citizens. Many of their parents are illegal immigrants. They look to Reverend Luis Guillermo for guidance. "The idea is to assist the parents to prepare for the law - prepare for what will happen with the children if they had any problems with police, an arrest or anything," said Guillermo. Now, the parents are preparing legal documents giving temporary custody to a family member or friend who is in the U.S. legally. If they are arrested and deported, someone will be able to take care of the children.

    These children are Citizens of Mexico according to Mexico Constitution.

    THIS is exactly why "birthright citizenship" is an absolute JOKE. The consequence of a criminal act (illegal entry into the US) should not be to allow these kids to stay here. They SHOULD be deported or locked up as well.

    Most countries in the world have the same kind of law, if we followed those none of us would be Americans.

    That would be a good start in my mind. Truthfully, I'm not a big fan of granting ayone Citizenship based solely on where they were born or who they were born to. In my mind Citizenship is a Privilege, not a Right; and it needs to be EARNED regardless of where you were born.

    Probably not quite the right thread to go into the whole thing, but a combination of birthright and national service. If I get a chance later this afternoon or evening I'll spell the whole thing out in a separate thread for you.

    I think Military Service should definently qualify one for citizenship.
