It's not the kids' fault. Don't punish them for the actions of their parents. Try humanity before politics and economics.

No one thinks of the children that are sick. I work with very high acuity babies that are sent home with a mini ICU set up in their homes. What about those children? How can you take away food from a LEGAL citizen? Especially ones that need food? Do I believe that something needs to be done about illegal immigrants...yes. But don't take away food from these children.....especially sick children that count on nutritous food to get well.

Kansas may run into a legal battle over this. The 14th amendment says that if they were born here they are citizens, I believe.
