I can't imagine how these undocumented citizens feel knowing they can be uprooted and removed at anytime. I feel for the children who are here the most because they didn't do anything wrong but be children. Trump needs to stop his deportations threat and embrace these people as human beings who work, go to school, pay taxes and contribute to our country.

Unfortunately your right only about people like you and Trump who think only some children matter,But all children matter and Trump needs to open his heart and find away to let them stay. Our local immigration support group donations soared after Trumps election which will help to guide them. You need open your heart and wallet also to show we are truly going to make an already great America stay that way.

if these kids are soooooo important the parents should have stayed home and protected those kids

there are laws rules and regulations and illegal immigrants don't get to pick & chose which laws they feel like they want to obey and which they elect not to obey

I the working tax payer get to decide who what I want to pay for and I refuse to pay for illegal fools
welfare ho's and n word drug dealers

arrest and deport them don't hire them refuse to admit them into our schools deport them

“Hello Trump”

There is no such thing as an undocumented American.
You are either an American, a resident alien, or an illegal alien.

America will never be great with 30 million illegal aliens living here. They are NOT undocumented Americans, they are wet back criminals and vermin. And, yes, you WILL be deported.

Speaking of children, how would you suggest we end the endless flow of welfare babies every ten months to get bigger checks from taxpayers. Immigrants and our citizens having child after child just for financial gain is the result of a system out of control. Any reasonable ideas?
