Seattle Times feedback on deported Illegals
The Seattle Times ran a series of articles which talked about how hard a time some recently deport mexican iilegals were having in Mexico. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2004330685_mexicoana06m.html
The Times then asked the readers for some feedback. http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/reader_feedback/public/display.php?id=495
Boy did the readers give it to them. Almost every reader said we shouldn't feel bad at all.
To the adults which came here illegally, I could care less about what happens to them.
To the children of the illegals. They are being punished for the parents bad choices.
-If they were born here and had to go to Mexico because they are to young to stay by themselves. I feel bad for them.
- If they were born in Mexico but spent most of the life in the US and are being sent back as adults, I think the US has an obligation to find a way for them to stay. They didn't commit a crime their parents did.
What do you think?

1. I think that all the energy put into mass marches by illegal aliens for "immigration reform" that we witnessed in the last year should be put into marching on MEXICO to clean up its freaking act. That country is a MESS and IT is to blame for the problems of its citizens. The answer does not lay in letting people break laws to sneak in the back door of this country. These people should demand that Mexico clean up its act and conduct the country in a way that benefits its citizens instead of making life miserable for them. If someone wants to come to this country, let them do it legally as my father did when he came from South America. He was appalled at all the illegal aliens flooding into southern California (where he lived until he passed away earlier this decade) over the last several decades. Massive law-breaking isn't the answer. Mexico dealing with its own dysfunction IS.
2. Mexico is a wealthy corrupt country. I agree with Michele that they need to work on their country. However, because of the complicity of our politicians/corporations (yes i put them together for a reason) and even our own citizens, it is 'smarter' for them to come here and work illegally.
With how much this seems to be an issue for American citizens given all the polls, it's ridiculous none of our politicians are really addressing it.
