I have no sympathy for these people. They are breaking the law by even being in the country with no papers so they have no one to blame when they get deported. And, if these people are so worried about their kids they should have gained entry to the US legally. Since they did not.....good ridence to all the criminals they catch and hopefully this will not be last raid that happens.

If they came into the U.S. the right way they wouldn't have anything to fear. Who cares if they can't work. The don't have the right to. They need to go back to their own country.

Why should we care what happen to these people, when they come to our cities and live for little or nothing. They get assistan from food, and paid rent. I can't get sh@#& without them asking me to give up my $7.00 per hr job.

Afraid? They SHOUULD be afraid. Anyone who breaks the law should be afraid. Heck, I'm afraid when I go 70 in a 55. They should be arrested and deported. If they want to leave their anchor children here in the US, maybe foster care can be arranged. Otherwise, take the kids with the parents and put them on the bus to wherever.

Sorry about the innocent children that were dragged helplessly into this but the illegal parents are to blame. Stay in the country you belong in until you can acquire the proper documents and permission to leave! What your country is so bad that you have to drag your problems here and blame ours cause you got busted?

Learn English, learn the American culture and become a U.S. Citizen,that's what it takes. We, as Americans, should not adjust our lives for immigrants, it's the other way around. If I moved to Mexico, I would expect to learn their language and culture in order to assimilate. I expect all foreigners to do the same here.

Look, i have no hate in me. I don't want people to be hurt or harm to come to them or their children. But, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about things.

When you do things the wrong way, there are consequences.

While I do have compassion for their children, I do not have any for the adults. They show no regard for the laws of a sovereign nation, the United States of America, and then cry foul when they are caught. I do not have any compassion for those that disrespect the laws of a country from the very instant the come into this country.

Many people, every day, come to this country legally and work towards becoming naturalized citizens. They should come back through the proper channels if they do not want to worry about INS raids.

On another note, the businesses who hire illegal aliens should be held legally liable and accountable as well. Employees using stolen SSNs to gain employment?!? Say someone puts the name "Susan Smith" and a SSN matching that name on an application. When you interview that person they look Hispanic and can't speak English. Wouldn't that raise a red flag?!? The employer would have to know that something is amiss. Or can anyone put a valid SSN with a different name on an application? I do not believe that the employers are unwitting participants in this situation.

Deport them all. If they check they will find alot more using social security numbers belonging to deceased or people that has had their identy stollen. They should also do something about the companys that hire them to work.
