these folks brought it all on themselves. those who are said to of been brought by their parents may not be as guilty as their parents yet staying here is a crime.

deport and let those kids know it is all on their parents who caused the mess in their lives,they could have been good parents and stayed in their homelands and teach values instead of coming here teaching them a criminals way of life.

My son works with several Asians here illegally, that over stayed Student Visa's. He's more forgiving to them because they are low key, non disruptive and usually educated. I've seen their behavior at his College, and they don't assimilate either. And they shouldn't be given a pass either.

I have zero sympathy for the kids. They should be deported with the parents. Those over 18 should automatically be deported, they had an opportunity to become legal, and didn't, shows future intentions. As far as the rhetoric of this is the only country they know, their parents could have said the same thing in mexico! Yet, they chose to come here...not even knowing the language!!!! How bold is that?

This whole thing is to tug at our heart strings, it doesn't work on me! Gang 8 is poised and ready to legalize the criminal parents as well! Sick!

Korean illegal aliens coming here to avoid 2 year armed services commitment? Really the kind we need here! If they can't be loyal to their mother country, you know they are going to be loyal to good old USA!

(CBS) It was 5 a.m. and CBS News national correspondent Byron Pitts is with
a woman who is nine months pregnant. She's rushed to a south Texas hospital
to undergo a C-section - a $4,700 medical procedure that won't cost her a
dime. She qualifies for emergency Medicaid.

She gave birth to a healthy, 8 1/2 pound baby boy - born in America. His
Mexican mother gave him an American name: Eliot.

Eliot is one of an estimated 300,000 children of illegal immigrants born in
the United States every year, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. They're
given instant citizenship because they are born on U.S. soil, which makes it
easier for their parents to become U.S. citizens.

That's because those babies can eventually sponsor their parents - when they
turn 21 years old.

More Chinese women are traveling to America to give birth

Beijing - Wang Rong, who is six-months pregnant, is about to leave Beijing
for California so she can give birth to her baby in the United States and
give the child its first gift - US citizenship.

The special delivery will cost Wang and her husband, both white-collar
workers in the capital, 100,000 yuan ($15,000), but they say it is money
well spent.

The expenditure will cover all costs, including services before departure,
medical care in the US and a three-month stay there, thanks to the help of a
Shanghai-based agency that specializes in taking mainland moms to North
America.

"Given the quality of educational resources and employment prospects in
China, where there is a huge population and harsh competition, I want my
baby to win at the starting line by obtaining US citizenship," she said.

The cost to deliver a baby in the US is far higher than in Beijing, but
still affordable for the couple, which makes nearly 250,000 yuan a year, she
said.

The list of benefits runs long for babies born in the US, says Jiang Feng,
the Chinese mainland partner of the agency, which originated in Taiwan.

Jiang said babies born in the US will, at the very least, be entitled to a
place at an American public university, which is favored by many parents
over domestic institutions, both for quality of teaching and cheaper
tuition.

"The number of mainland customers has been skyrocketing since we opened the
branch in late 2008, right after the US opened tourist visa applications to
Chinese individuals," he told China Daily.

Its too late to stop illegal immigration. The Latino vote is so strong now that any attempt to crack down on it will get you booted out of office. In 50 years, we will become just another Latin American country.

Not anymore! I predict that Mexicans will be the most hated group in America! You see, the reconquesta group just didn't know how to go about it! If you seriously want to take over a country, next time bring an army instead of needy bottom feeder welfare recipients!!!

I urge every American to report any and all illegal aliens to ICE.
They are not like us and they do not belong in America.

Illegal implies criminal.
