Skip to comments.March Against Immigration Law Asks 'What About the Children?'
Posted on 10/09/2011 5:04:18 PM PDT by moonshinner_09
About 200 college students and others from Huntsville came down to the Capital City to raise awareness for the children that may be affected by the new law on illegal immigration now that it has taken effect.
The National Association for the Prevention of Starvation is taking a stand against Alabama's law on illegal immigration. Students from Oakwood University in Huntsville said they wanted to represent those who are not able to represent themselves - the children.
"We work with children in those communities and a lot of them are afraid," organizer Mia Pile said. "Many of them are American, but they're really afraid about what's going to happen to their parents."
So they stood on the Capitol steps, bearing signs and singing songs in unity as they presented their questions about the law.
"What will happen?" Christine Whittaker asked. "Will their parents get deported and the children get split up into the foster care system? Will they be allowed? They're Americans. Just like us. They're Americans."

Take them with you to your native land, you will be welcomed with open arms by your family and friends. I just love a good home coming, now hurry along your family is waiting.
The children are more than welcome to “go home” with the parents. I’m sure that their “home” countries will take them without issue...and they’re probably already dual-nationals.
Also, when they get there, they won’t have any trouble speaking the home language, because that’s all they ever heard at the dinner table anyway.
They should look forward to their new adventure in life.
Yea, I know, I’m HEARTLESS...but I can’t help it.
Why don’t these people work to fix their own countries?
The kids can decide later when they are adults if they want to come to the USA.
I think it’s time for these college students to start paying some big time taxes. After all, they’re in college, they must be rich. Have you seen what the colleges and universities are asking for tuition these days?
Seems to me that we shouldn’t be keeping citizens of another nation, since those kids are also citizens of some other country, here. They should be free to return to their other nation.
When a serving member of our military with a family is ordered to transfer to a new permanent duty station I have never heard of someone wondering whether the children will get split up into the foster care system.
TAKE YOUR CHILDREN WITH YOU.
What about the children? No, what about the kittens? WON’T SOMEONE THINK OF THE KITTENS?!
See them in the checkout in Walmart with a cart load of groceries, or two, using WIC and Food Stamps, while right behind them with half the stuff is a young American couple, both working and making too much for Food Stamps by about $50.00, but can't afford the "stuff" these people get for free--that is free to them. Someone, however, is paying the bill. To see who, look in the mirror if you are a taxpayer.
These citizen children can go home with parents and return when they are of age.
They may be U.S. citizens due to a misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment but let's not get carried away.
I have no problem with the children of course going with THEIR parents....who knew well the risk to their children by coming here. Any guilt for what the children might fear or feel is directly on the parents shoulders where it belongs.
The Parents have known for years now that the US was planning on and moving toward addressing the illegal alien problems...they’ve had years to go thru the proper channels before coming here....our immigration laws are available to any who desire to obtain them...they’ve had time to have gone thru the channels established......they CHOSE not to and with that the risk of what they face now.
HAd our border been closed and at the very least secured these people likely would have risen up against their government and they’d be on their way to establishing a healthy nation. But no it’s just easier to step across the border and claim this nation as their own...”coming home” is their new buzz word...”we’re not illegal”.
They'd have no choice if we had closed borders...but because we don't it's just plain easier to step into the US where they know the illegal alien issue will never be settled and they can be taken care of...and they are...
Now their numbers have increased to where they claim this is their nation we took from them...that they have simply come home home. Imagine this arguement in a court of law....would go on for years and years and they wouldn't care for they will have raised their families by then as well as "Pathway to Amnnesty" will happen. They loose nothing.
That was easy.
“But no its just easier to step across the border and claim this nation as their own...coming home is their new buzz word...were not illegal.”
No kidding. Back in the 90s, a friend of mine noticed that President Clinton was ALWAYS hiding behind kids and uniforms (i.e., military, cops, etc.). It was a great observation and certainly holds true for the Democrats today. It is up to us Republicans to NOT feel heartless and DEAL WITH these issues once and for all, so they finally will be disposed of.
Easy answer: They get deported too!
A human infant will try to escape the suction tube during an abortion. It tries to get away.
I wonder if they feel the same kind of compassion for the truly innocent?
I doubt it. These illegal kids help them politically. Their illegal parents vote democrat.
Take them with you.
“Will their parents get deported” Yes, if they are here illegally and it sounds like they are.
“and the children get split up into the foster care system?”
foster care or adoption, if the parents don’t want to take their children with them.
“Will they be allowed?” Who? The anchor children or their criminal parents? Didn’t we just go over this? Oh yeah, you want to be teachers ...
“They’re Americans. Just like us. They’re Americans.”
Who?! You’re beyond tedious. I say let’s deport Christine, too, just because she’s a pain in the: ostracism, or banishment as the ancient Greeks practiced it. C’mon, let’s vote.
They are their children. They need to take care of them.
The major problem is their numbers are so vast you can bet they will unite and fight this......thousands in the streets just as before when this has been brought to the surface.
There's just no way I see our government ever doing the right thing about this...they will continue to "table" it thru each administration until it's too late, which it already is.
So what then can we expect when Amnesty goes thru? A continual enlargement of their numbers and families coming here....and this nation will be MExican American....no doubt in my mind and all polticians will see it as so....lip service at best but it's not going to go way or be dealt with. The globalist will assist you can be sure of that...in making our nation other than what we have known it to be.
College students? You mean the ones who’ve never had a job? Never had to budget meager incomes against financial obligations like rent, and food, and healthcare, and such? The ones who’ve never taken the time or made the effort to learn the truth about the founding of this great nation, but would rather absorb the propaganda of the leftists in charge of our educational system?
Those college students?
They don’t count. They need to start taking on the responsibility of caring for themselves before they start telling me how I should be taking care of others.
Inching ever closer to the ultimate reset button...
“The major problem is their numbers are so vast you can bet they will unite and fight this......thousands in the streets just as before when this has been brought to the surface.”
Not if we (relatively) slowly turn up the heat. First step is get them off of social services, then to make them jobless, then to kick their kids out of all schools here. As the heat turns up, they will gradually migrate back home.
If we do it at once, they may protest...and we’ll have to deal with that...and we will. And when they protest, we’ll have them arrested, fingerprinted, and NEVER allowed back here again, under any conditions.
Incrementally? That’s how “they” have gotten this far, you might be on to something.
The propaganda is pretty difficult to refute. “you hate kids, and want to push grandma over a cliff.”
The 14th amendment is a serious scam, and the old “tell a lie often enough and people start to believe it” is clearly in play here. NO other country allows “birthright citizenship”, not even close. The author of the 14th was quite clear that the amendment doesn’t apply to illegal entry, children of diplomats, etc. There is no reasonable justification for this policy today, and there never was, because it is based upon a lie.
Does anyone suppose that Mexico provides in-state tuition to illegal aliens there? Does Mexico have a policy towards illegals there? As a matter of fact, it does - Prison, and then deportation. The popular representation is that Mexico is a poor country, that is not true either - they have very large mineral deposits, oil and gas, timber, etc. It is true they have a dysfunctional system of government.
College students are among the last people consulted on such matters. I know, because I was once young and stupid.
If by "us," she means Obama, she's right.
UnoVision TV, Interviewed, Sr. Manuel Labor, the head of the Mexican Consulate in Demopolis.
He says the Mexican Navy will blockade the port of Mobile... as soon as they can buy some gas for the john boat and get the chickens out of it.
You’re probably right as isn’’t there a state, maybe Alabama that turned things up and they are leaving in droves out of fear of being discovered?
Mexican’s immigration policy’s..........we need these in the USA....
- If outsiders do not enhance the countrys economic or national interests or are not found to be physically or mentally healthy, they are not welcome.
- Neither are those who show contempt against national sovereignty or security.
- They must not be economic burdens on society.
- Must have clean criminal histories.
- Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, ...provide a bank statement proving economic independence, ..pass an exam and ....prove they can provide their own health care.
Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years imprisonment.
- Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud.
- Illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years imprisonment
-. Foreigners may be kicked out of Mexico without due process
- Native-born Mexicans are empowered to make citizens arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities.
- A National Population Registry tracks and verifies the identity of every member of the population, who must carry a citizens identity card. Visitors who do not possess proper documents and identification are subject to arrest as illegal aliens.
- Noncitizens canot in any way participate in the political affairs of Mexico.
“Youre probably right as isnt there a state, maybe Alabama that turned things up and they are leaving in droves out of fear of being discovered?”
Yea, they’re definitely packing their bags in Alabama. But if it is done nationally, it will be a lot more severe, as they won’t have other states (like Texas) to welcome them. They’ll have to make some tough decisions...so it will be tricky. But I do promise you they won’t stay put, with their kids out of school, no job, and risking arrest just going to the store (i.e., like an illegal in the other 195 of 196 countries in the world). They’ll have to move out.
Then maybe, after they’ve packed their bags and left, we can start talking about coming back legally (without their kids) for guest-worker assignments (in controlled numbers, for controlled amounts of time, with no possibility of becoming citizens...but great pay to send home)...and make that an inducement for them to leave peacefully when the laws first get implemented.
If their parents are from Mexico, then they are also Mexican citizens, and should go home with their parents. Besides...what parents would leave their kids here in foster care rather than take them home to Mexico? Parents who were here for the "goodies", of course. So much for illegals "sharing our values", like so many misguided Evangelicals are telling us in support of amnesty.
