Nice one FedUp. Or we could call you Mr. Hindsight. Why, why, why? The way this country or I should say some in this country look at things makes one wonder if they are Americans. The home of the free and the brave has become the home of the holier than thou.
----------
What's "holier than thou" about pointing out that there have been ways for this man and his family to legalize--and still are. The 601 waiver requires that illegal aliens who entered without inspection as this man apparently did return to their home country. Their U.S. citizen spouse can then apply for a waiver of inadmissibility. The couple in this case could and should have done this years ago, when they had control over the timing of it rather than waiting until he was deported. Another bad decision. They can still, however, apply for the waiver. What's "holier than thou" about expecting people to accept responsibility for their own bad decisions? And to accept the consequences of those decisions?

People do not understand until they are in that position. Thankfully for a lot of us we are not in that position. Most people are quick to judge and say he should have gone back when he was 18. Yeah seems easy enough to me (sarcasm*)! By the way, not just illegals commit crimes. Many Americans commit crimes in our country. God Bless all of you who jump at judging others without having any sympathy in your hearts.

This is a lesson many in El Paso need to learn. The path of least resistance is not always the best path.
Newton's 3rd law: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Common to physics, but works pretty good for decisions involving life's circumstances.
