    What should happen to this little girl?

    Watch the video:

    In your opinion, what do you think should happen to this little girl and her family now that she inadvertently blew the whistle on them?

    If they or even just the mother is illegal deport both of them. A child should not be used as a shield for trespassing\invading or any other illegal activity. By your logic we shouldn't throw someone into prison for a crime if they have a child. Personally I prefer polls so we can see who voted,seeing how anonymous polls can be cheated.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I think that she should be investigate for illegal immigration, and if she is an illegal immigrant, she should be made to go through the immigration process and if she's acceptable she and her child should be able to stay. A judge should then make the mother do community service. If her mother fails the immigration process, deport them both.

    They both should be deported if they are here illegally. I think it is absolutely insane to allow children born in the United States illegeally to become citizens, as this isn't fair to parents who, after being deported, would be seperated from their children.
    There is nothing more dangerous to the liberty of Man than a Government or a Religion seizing upon the strings of an overdeveloped herd instinct amongst the people.

    Believe the issue has already been addressed and concluded. The government will not be pursuing.


    Will try to find a link......

    she should be used as an object lesson for all other children of illegal immigrants ... so that they will understand it is not good for their families to be so forthcoming

    The way I see it, if the parents came here illegally, the citizenship of the child has been obtained illegally. If they are caught then procedure should be to deport them both. As it stands however, the American constitution makes all those born on U.S. soil, legal citizens regardless of the circumstance around their birth.

    "The 7-year-old put a human face on the issue Wednesday when she told the first lady during an elementary school visit that her mother had said President Barack Obama was "taking everybody away that doesn't have papers." Then she said her mother "doesn't have papers."

    Mrs. Obama tried to reassure her that the president was working to solve the immigration problem and "everybody's got to work together in Congress to make sure that that happens."

    A day later, the girl's mother declined to talk but permitted a brief interview with the girl on the condition that their names not be used because she is concerned about her immigration status.

    The girl said she was happy to meet Mrs. Obama and Mexico first lady Margarita Zavala at New Hampshire Estates Elementary School and hoped to return the visit.

    "I hope I get to go to the White House," she said.

    Asked if she was worried about her mother's situation, the girl smiled and shook her head.

    A Department of Homeland Security official said federal immigration authorities are not pursuing the family.

    DHS spokesman Matt Chandler said in an e-mailed statement Thursday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigations "are based on solid law enforcement work and not classroom Q-and-As."

    Chandler added the agency "prioritizes criminal aliens who pose a threat to our communities."."

    My wild ass guess is that this "awkward moment" is going morph its way into a positive for the administration. (tough for the opposition to take a stand against a cute 7 year old girl and her mama )

    It's all about politics and perception.

    I can agree with this.

    Yeah... I doubt that's what was intended when the laws were written.

    Humans are not objects, and using this pair as a "lesson" will change nothing. If anything, Hispanics will trust and respect our government that much less. They will continue to live in hiding.
