Actually, this is probably a catch 22 situation - the children also must have a guardian, but the guardian does not have the right to be here.

If the parent has not committed any serious crimes then it is simply dead wrong and immoral to separate them from their children. That tactic might be used by dictators but last I heard we are STILL a Democracy where EVERY human has rights.

Noted. Yes, it is cruel...and inhumane. The heart of the problem exists within the countries these children left. Rather than allow the US Empire to use the CIA & other members of that alphabet soup.....to go down and cause more war and unrest, we should be helping these countries through humanitarian efforts. We have wasted trillions on "secret, covert wars" throughout Central & South America for decades.

Our government sticks its nose into so many places it doesn't belong.

Hey, our tax dollars are already used up.

Who is going to support the parents and their children.

You want to take them into YOUR home and provide food, medicine, education etc. for children AND their parents?

I'm glad to see several of you are using common sense in your remarks.

Thank you Cal. I was made aware of this very briefly by a panelist on Bill Maher a few weeks back. THANK YOU FOR THE DETAILS as Bill seemed stupefied at this information, and continued with the topic at large.
It is harder and harder to see the good President Obama has done when you learn the "secrecy that never gets attention".

And how about those A holes in front of the bus, turning back children in need? RACIST or WHAT!

Blame the parents for breaking the law in the first place not blaming the US for deporting them.If they had not entered illegally in the first place their children would not have been given citizenship, which I think is wrong to begin with if the parents are illegally here so are the kids.
