This women is dead wrong. Her parents were wrong. Her parents should've been charged with child neglect, child abandonment, child endangerment and should've been called out for dumping their responsibility on someone else. They also should've called criminals and quitters.

US citizens are being charged with neglect and abandonment for leaving unattended kids in a car just to go shopping.

Most of these children and families are NOT special. There are plenty of poor or crime ridden areas all over the world where people don't commit CRIME in their own country or someone else's. Just because one is poor does not give them the right to ignore the most basic of parental and adult responsibilities. Or the law especially of a third party country. Sooner or later they will have to work for change. How do the people that remain do it. Sometimes you have to endure or wait things out. Sometimes you literally have to take a stand and fight for change.

All that time and money spent these ILLEGAL immigrants spend on CRIMINAL smuggling couldn't be spent on the resources needed for change and aid in their own country?

At least have the guts to come into the country legally and go through the process thousands go through yearly. But a CRIMINAL entrance does not or should not warrant special treatment to people who are basically ignorant quitters.
