    Children of criminals all go through the same emotions and problems. Let's stop making excuses and find a way to stop the illegal influx. Our economy rebounds and we will be flooded again.

    "A study released in July 2012 from SUNY University at Albany reveals the deep effect anxiety over immigration laws can have on children,"

    why not release a study on the anxiety children of embezzlers and other common criminals when their parents are sent to jail? aren't those families ripped apart, too? Oh, I know, because you are not advocating amnesty for the other common criminals, just illegal aliens.

    Deportation numbers have risen under the Obama administration and are up from 190,000 in 2001 to nearly 400,000 per year in the last four years, according to the Center for American Progress.

    Sorry, interdictions at the border do not count as deportations, no matter what BO or the CAP says.

    What trash. The Center for American Progress does a "study" and you publish it as fact.
    It's like the La Raza study a few years back about separating families through deportation.
    Let's get serious about our sources, Deseret News.

    Wow. Just wow.

    "Journalism" has reached the point where comments culled from four far, far left groups can be cut and pasted to make a "news story."

    No pretense of "fairness" or looking for an opposing viewpoint. Just straight parroting of the liberal conventional wisdom. Or, Obama talking points.

    Come on, Deseret News, is this what I am paying for? (Yes, I do BUY the paper, not just read it on line!)

    Deportation is the direct consequence of violating our laws, and those violations were committed as free will acts by people who usually were aware of the consequences. Or, sadly, the usual LACK of consequences since our immigration laws are largely ignored by the perpetrators and enforcers.

    Will we start blaming back robberies on the banks for having money, instead of on the robbers?

    You know you live in an Upside-down Land if...
    You can get arrested for expired tags on your car, but not for being in the country illegally.
