It sends a wrong signal out to the world whenever we welcome illegal aliens (or their actions), regardless of their age. We should and do welcome legal immigrants... but not their illegal counterparts.

When the world thinks the USA is welcoming of illegal actions (immigration), much more illegal action (immigration) will ensue... and is. It's not rocket science. This mistaken idea is the primary reason for this humanitarian mess in the first place. South Americans firmly believe their minors won't be evicted. Now they are coming in ever-growing, uncontrollable waves.

We have espoused rule of law for the last 2 centuries and it has always served us well. To abandon the use of law now for the premise of supposed compassion in this case is a big mistake. People can still be compassionate while believing in and adhering to laws.

We already allow hundreds of thousands of people to legally come to and become citizens of the United States every year. This is the established, right way of doing things lawfully. There is then no need to live in the shadows or deal with all the other negative undertones illegal aliens deal with.

Obama is spreading around the problem he created.
When he told youth they could have his DREAM Act benefits (a program that never went through Congress), children from Central America were encouraged to come here. They believed they would be allowed in and could then hide in the shadows until DREAM was extended.
And that is exactly how it is playing out. They are given Notices to Appear which they will ignore. We don't enforce the immigration laws so they can get jobs and get in-state tuition and DPC cards.
There is no downside or risk for these miniature illegal aliens.
So, pardon us Mr. President if we block the road and declare, "You won't dump your failures in my town!"

Both Eric Holder and Barak Obama say that they are disliked by a lot of Americans because of their race, I'm sure they will say that's why we don't like illegal immigrants too. I couldn't possibly be that we merely like people to be law abiding, non-criminals who come here for valid reasons and who do not manufacture fraudulent papers in order to steal benefits to which they are not entitled, pose public health threats, commit disproportionate numbers of acts of violence and other crimes, clutter our prisons, or vote illegally. The chutzpah of the La Raza types on reconquista is truly amazing.
