    Nope, but I have a friend who was raised in one and he managed to stay safe and protected, thanks to his parents. Abandoning your children is an irresponsible act no matter how you try to spin it.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    Slum dwellers don't make it to the US legally. They've no resources to do so.

    How is that any different than gang infested East LA or any other mess? They don't ship their kids to Beverly Hills and expect them to take care of them...

    Gang infested East LA is a paradise compared to a developing world slum.

    I have been to both and I am comparing the violence and potential harm to the child. It is not completely comparable but many in hard hit impoverished areas with gangs in the US or trailer parks have it every bit as bad. My comparison is accurate.

    Your comparison is garbage. People in East LA do not starve to death, they have access to medical care, they have electricity and sewage systems (not open gutters running in the dirt streets), they have schools, they have shelter without a leaking tin roof, they have social services. There are countless ways developing world slums are far worse than any slum in the US.

    Ridiculous. I have been to student houses with rotting black mold, leaky roofs, gang family members, no electricity, leaky roofs, rats, garbage smeared on the floors, holes in the floors, houses filled with junk so kids have to sleep on the floors, etc. I am talking about people living in terrible conditions and East LA was but one example. Perhaps I have seen things or aware of things that you are not.

    You have some never equating the two situations. Disgusting intellectual dishonesty.

    I am equating the potential to harm for a child. I accept reality. I have experience. I have understanding. Get a grip. gain some experience. It will help with your perspective.
