Will the children of others who've broken the laws of the USA be there too?.
Will they be there to demand their parents be forgiven for breaking the laws too?

It is the parents fault for entering the USA illegally. The parents should be teaching their children about taking responsibility for thier actions.
That's what GOOD parents do.

Even if you entered the country legally you can still be at risk of deportation. Those who come here seeking asylum have "legal status" while their case is pending. Legal permanent residents can also be subject to deportation for minor legal infractions that occurred decades ago. Others who are documented, but are in the process of changing their status can easily run afoul of a very complicated system as a result of bad legal advice or administrative errors. The people talked about in the article are not just sometimes the parents of US citizens, they are also the spouses of US citizens. This issue is not so black and white.
