    But absolutely none of that would make a person anti-immigrant. I happen to think the quotas in place are more than fair and that we should restrict immigration to those who have something to offer as citizens.

    Maybe you don't hear those things because they are two separate and distinct issues - immigration has nothing to do with illegal aliens. The left wants to conflate them in their never ending need to demonize the other side's motives. Didn't take long to get the racism charges out.

    Once again, this isn't about equating the crimes. It does however use a very small part of the emotionalism against you that you have been using for the entire thread.

    I didn't say "rapist". I said "sexual assault". Two different things.

    Irregardless, your scenario and my scenario both involve criminal action. They both involve people breaking the law, getting caught years later and the question of whether they should bear the lawful consequences of their actions.

    You know, I think a better course of action for you bleeding heart liberals/progressives/Democrats would be to push for a statute of limitations for illegally entering our country. Change the law to say that, if you come here illegally, manage to avoid getting caught for X number of years, then you automatically become a citizen. Then you wouldn't have to show yourself as not caring about the rule of law.

The parents however have never obtained legal status despite the fact they have lived and worked here for 15 years.

    It's entirely up to you, could you personally walk into their home, arrest the parents in front of their kids, bring them up before an immigration hearing where you sit as judge, and then deport them back to Mexico?
    And your Tiny Violin scenario is PRECISELY WHY we have a problem and keep having it.
    Putrid liberality.
    Dozens of sympathy amnesties rewarding Criminals.

    Someone sneaks across and then claims "reunite" or "tear apart" brutally separated family.
    So parents sneak across.. kids sneak across.. then EVERY Extended family has a new 'right.
    It's estimated 11 million will become 33 Million with their/YOUR new 'rights'.

    And your scenario is to the LEFT side of fair
    MOST immigrants haven't lived here that long and don't have 9 and 13 yr old kids...
    Whose Education and Healthcare WE have been paying for since they work Off the books.
    And most have More than Two kids.
    Many send their illegal money back across the border.

    Virtually ALL are BIG Net losers for the economy, in that even on the books, they pay NO net Federal Income tax.
    Even the famous "47%" of legals pay no net Federal Income taxes save for FICA and are net losers.

    So how good is it for the economy if they make 25K OFF the books and send 1/3 back to Mexico/etc.
    A Family of 4-7 OFF the books ILLEGALS probably costs the economy/US-Taxpayers $100,000 a Year in healthcare, edu, roads, prisons, police, border patrol, etc.
    Even ON the books, Big Net losers.

    Your whole BS sympathetic scenario is unfair.
    What about what happened THIS yr.. people sending their kids in first.. then we get the 'reunite'/orphan whining.
    Most are more recent, many came across JUST to have kids.
    WHAT ABOUT Them?
    ANSWER that.
    Why DISINGENUOUSLY present only your 15-yr-here Scenario?

    Deport?
    No.
    E-verify.
    NO USA citizenship, NO JOBS. Period.
    (employER sanctions)
    You come across illegally you you Cannot get a job and can NEVER be made Legal.
    PERIOD.

    We don't need Border Patrol Nor 'deport'.
    just Guaranteed Nothing to [illegally] come for.
    Game over.

    You just perpetuate the rolling amnesty/rewarding Illegals problem.
    You reward criminality merely because they have stayed hidden longer.

    I don't want to misdirect the OP discussion, but it reminds me of the Bill Cosby kerfuffle now - Bill Cosby has been such a great entertainer, wonderful family sitcom for years, great promoter of family values in the black community, etc. - so what if maybe he raped a dozen or two women decades ago, he's been a good egg all these years, let's let him slide.

    I didn't have him in mind when I came up with my scenario. I was looking more toward a crime with no statute of limitations. But his situation DOES fit my scenario.

    Just like with the illegal alien, I'd throw the book at him in a heartbeat, as well.

    Well, Apacherat was saying that they should be jailed and then deported.

    Yes, fine him and allow him to live here legally, because why would you punish innocent children by deporting their parents or forcing them to live in a country in which they were not born and that is totally alien to them.

If a group of people or a family take over an unoccupied property and live there for a certain period of time, you wouldn't want them to be removed for trespassing? But they've lived there a long time and gained friends and babies were born etc. etc. Don't they get to keep the place on emotional grounds?
    Sorry, I should have written this in 2 responses, one for apacherat who said jail them and one to you for comparing their illegal entry to justice for people who have been murdered/raped.

    But your squatting comparison also does not really fly in this case because people born inside the United States are natural born Americans. So their children are natural born citizens (or at least that is what the 14th amendment states and as far as I have read so far this has never been ruled on by the supreme court when illegal aliens are involved, so as for now the 14th amendment is in play here) of the United States.

    When a child is born in a squatted home it does not legally give them rights to that house, but children who are born in the US are US citizens and they do have rights that come with that citizenship. And they get those rights on legal grounds.

    So then why jail ANY criminal who has children, no matter the crime? Why not just fine them all. For one it's a very unequal application of the law, for another deportation is NOT punishment.
