I would do so because, that's my job.
I would want to do so, in addition to it being my job, because I'm an American citizen and I respect justice for all.
I, not being subject to having a victim-mentality stimulated within me, do not have a bleeding-heart that would prevent me from doing what's right.
Would I feel sad for those in the moment, the parents having been arrested for their crimes, the kids frightened and separated from their parents? Yes, I would.
But, that would not stop me from doing what's right.
I would feel my feelings, and I would let them pass.
It's important to understand in this matter that the parents and parents alone put their children in jeopardy of being frightened and separated from them.
They trespassed into America, forged false identities or stole the identities of others, illegally obtained employment, committed violations of U.S. Customs, committed other related frauds, some of which are felonies, all in the process of stealing jobs, classrooms, living-space, road-space, and other resources in America from the American citizens to which those resources belong.
If anyone has any blame to place for the sad situation, it should rightly be placed on the parents and no one else.
The vast overwhelming majority of people throughout the world in similar socioeconomic-geopolitical circumstances chose not to come to America and commit on-site crimes.
The very tiny fraction of those who did choose to come here and commit on-site crimes is well within the standard crime percentage, and in no way casts doubt on the validity of the laws against those crimes.
For justice to be served, justice for all, those committing crimes against people, as illegal aliens do, need to be apprehended and brought to justice. When convicted, they rightly need to make restitution, serve prison time, and then be deported upon release.
That we choose to simply require they surrender their belongings and the jobs they've stolen, and suspend imprisonment, quickly returning them to their children for family deportation, is simply the best we can do in the name of justice for all.
For some, doing the right thing is too difficult, as their unresolved family of origin issues in which they still experience their victim-mentality can be stimulated with pandering rhetoric a la President Obama's speech, and they act out the "corrective emotional experience", in which if they can project themselves on "the kids" and spare them "victimizing anguish", then their own victimization "never happened".
The "corrective emotional experience", however, is a futile endeavor, because it can obviously never happen as the time-oblivious unconscious commands; you can't go back and change the past.
Of course, there are those who know that arresting and deporting this family is the right thing to do, but it runs counter to their preconceived ideology, so they feign outrage to the deportation.
Regardless, justice for all is a foundational American value.
It can only be served when criminals are brought to justice and people get their belongings returned to them (in this case, their jobs, classrooms, etc.).
We can't allow our unresolved family of origin issues or preconceived ideologies to stand in the way of justice for all.
