    What can be so hard about the gubberment sitting up regional offices to process illegal aliens? Pay a 200.00 fine for being illegal, register, go 5 years and re-register or study for citizenship. Case closed. Weed out the bad, welcome the good with open arms. That way we will have finger-prints, DNA, information for tax purposes, and everybody's happy.

    Why is the bureaucracy so backlogged? Tell that if you owed the IRS money they would make you wait 5 years to get around to collecting it.

    It shouldn't take more than a half-hour and a fine to get legal. Unless, of course, the illegal has something to hide.

    Deport them both. Illegal immigration should not be rewarded. And then people wonder why it is so bad.

    Interesting approach. But wouldn't that translate to all anyone needs to do is sneak across the border with $200 in their pocket and they are good to go for the long term??


    Seems a little dicey at first glance.....

    A law has been broken, and an inadvertant confession made. It should be pursued exactly the same as any other evidence that a law has been broken.

    If my child admitted on camera that I was doing something illegal, don't you think I'd be busted?

    The mom has to go. However, the kid can stay if there are relatives who are citizens and are willing to take her in.

    Jucon I agree humans aren't objects, AND the America's founding fathers give this little girl the right too live here even thought her mother is here illegally. This little girl seem to value being an American is that not what we want in people who come here? I feel sorry for the little girl, and the fact that she blew the secrete on her mother too the first lady, and Mexico's first lady

    your semantic distinction is acknowledged. i should have noted that the girl's experience should serve as an object lesson
    but we agree that this experience will illustrate to the other children in illegal households that they should remain quiet about those things which can jeopardize their families' condition

    the quote attributed to the DHS spokesmodel is troubling:
    [DHS/ICE] prioritizes criminal aliens who pose a threat to our communities
    it is good that there is a priority to ferret out those who are potentially the most dangerous. but the implication is also that those who do not pose an observable threat are left alone
    that attitude - expressed by an authority of the DHS/ICE no less - attracts more illegal immigration and undermines the rule of law. it shows that government embraces selective enforcement of the law as a policy and a practice. that reality should cause every American citizen to be alarmed

    No, I gave no such logic, nor do I believe in such a thing. And regarding your poll issue, it was simply a matter of on-the-spot choice when I put it up. I have no real preference either way.

    Should you wish to actually discuss this issue in a rational manner, i'll gladly oblige you. If, however, you wish to continue to make broad, off-base generalizations about my personal or political motivations for constructing such a poll, I won't.
