    You don't get it. Neither does the US officially (accept dual citizenship). That's why, again, when they apply for re-entry as citizens they must renounce their host country citizenship.

    That's the risk you run when you ignore another nation's laws by entering it without permission.

    Oh yes indeed it is. You are here illegally from the moment your visa expires or is revoked. And you are entirely wrong, it was AZ's new law that was the subject of the federal lawsuit.

    What you don't seem to understand is that in such a scenario the kids are U.S. citizens while the parents are not. The parents can be repatriated, but the kids may or may not be allowed to go with them as it would depend upon the laws of the parents country of origin.

    What's the point of imprisoning people you want gone? That's a waste of taxpayer dollars. If you're gonna boot'em, just do at that time.

    I was think after they serve their time in prison, transport them to the Canadian border and have them picking up trash along the highways all the way to the Mexican border.

    Feed them gringo burritos, that will only cost the taxpayers .05 cent per burrito.

I think its realistic and practical to go after those that employ illegals and securing our border, I don't its realistic to think we could deport everyone that is already here though.
    If we're going to be serious it would have to be a multi-pronged approach, so yes, those measures should be done at the same time.

    Another thing we need to do is change "birth rite" citizenship. Change it to being born here AND one biological parent already a citizen.

    Take away the incentive to come illegally, and border security would largely take care of itself.

    Any hard change will have an uncomfortable adjustment period.

    If the kids are anchor babies of illegal alien Mexican citizens, the Mexican government/Constitution claim that the anchor babies are Mexican citizens.

    That is Mexico, not every country has the same laws in regard to citizenship though.

    I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here. Consider this, American citizen parents in Guatemala have a child. That child has US citizenship AND Guatemalan citizenship. Since this is a minor, the child's actual citizenship follows the parents' choice. But you know in that situation, when returning to the US the parents must file for the child's US citizenship, renouncing his/her Guatemalan citizenship.

    Now Mexico and every other South American nation doesn't require that last part, the MINOR child inherit the citizenship of their parents AND their birth country.

    So again, this particular plea for sympathy isn't working.
