not knowing something is illegal is no reason to let them get by with doing it.

That's their excuse and they're sticking to it. Hey, why not, it's working for them as long as we have BO allowng them more and more leniency.

I don't buy their innocent act at all. Their parents knew it was illegal. If I commit a crime and go to prison, who's fault is it that my kids have to be left behind? MINE and only MINE!! It is a way for them to beat the system. Our laws mean noting to them. BO may have his way, but the states have the last word!
