immigration raid horror

You know all those people arrested in immigration raids at worksites earlier this week and shipped to Camp Dodge in Iowa? Well, those people had children - some of them nursing babies - LEFT BEHIND with caregivers while they were at work that day. Now the U.S. government won't tell the caregivers anything about the status of the parents taken in the raid, and the children are separated from their parents.

U.S. citizens are arrested every day, leaving their children in limbo. Should we let all criminals walk free because they have children to take care of? These people had children and broke the law anyway. They put their children in jeopardy, not the immigration officers.

What part of "illegal" don't you understand? Millions of people around the world would like to move here for "a better life." Do we take them all in? Especially the ones who have complete disregard for our laws? How would you feel about these people if your identity had been stolen by one of them? Did you read the article in today's KNS about the illegal immigrants who have set up meth labs and are growing pot in the Cherokee National Forest? Think maybe some of those goods will end up in your children's schools, hmmm?

Its a tough call. Being a mother AND having someone use my identity. But first,
You have to put the welfare of your child first. This means not doing anything illegal.
I imagine in some cases these women felt they had to steal the identity of someone else to feed there children. Would I do anything to feed my child, YES. I would also imagine that are lots of lawyers trying to help these people. In addition, they may be given the option to pump. I went to jury duty and I was allowed to pump. Actually, I had to pump because they would not let me out of it and my child was 6 months old. I also believe that very few people have children by accident. A wonderful thing about this country is you can get birth control 100% free forever. However, I have little sympathy when ones religious beliefs overtakes common sense. If you cannot afford to have children then you should not bring them into this world. Its not my responsibility to take care of other peoples children. In the olden days the Church would take on the responsibility. I was pleased to see in the news that the Catholic church in CO is reaching out to the people effected by the raid. This in my opinion is how it should be. Less government the better for everyone. I also believe the company played a large part in allowing this to happen and they should be severely fined. Its Enron style behavior but in a different way.

The children are being punished for the sins of their parents. Those of you who spew such hatred baffle me. I have a question - do you hate the children too? Is that what "suffer the little children ..." means? I guess I always misunderstood that.

"Shoot a few of the beaners?" That's the spirit of the season.

I ask again, should we let all lawbreakers with children walk free so they can take care of their kids? Unfortunately, yes, the children of criminals suffer for the crimes of their parents. Life ain't fair. Get use to it.

perhaps the ones who should be wondering about the fairness to their children are people who are breaking the law. THEY are the ones who should be blamed, not the authorities. should we not jail other criminals because they have to raise their kids?
maybe they should lose custody of their children. of course I can only imagine the new problems THAT would create. if we had had firm borders to begin with there would not BE this whole nest of problems that there are now. no other country in the world lets anyone and everyone in and then has border laws that one can basically laugh at. and this is how we have got all these muslims in here that are learning what our weaknesses are and how to attack us again and all the liberals are making nice with their muslim "neighbors" who are most likely relaying everything back to the mosque. no other country would let people who are such a security risk in their borders and then cringe in fright that they might be labeled "politically incorrect" for not letting members of a group known for such an agenda against said country into the door.

WTF???? I read the comments from the idiot who is saying that these scum stole identities to feed their kids??? YEAH RIGHT....is it a bunch of women? I doubt it...its probably a bunch of losers who smoke the stuff themselves. and if they had kids at all they are probably with multiple mothers that they never married and they never see. give me a break. why do you people have such a hard time realizing that some people are up to no good and that a really good chunk of them are not simply "good people" trying to get by and forced into wrongdoing. these shitheads have no regard for human life. I lived in LA and I know what they are like.
