Imagine this scenario: Several weeks ago, we came back from a vacation for which we had worked many years to afford and discovered a family had broken in the garage and was living in our home. They had eaten our groceries, worn our clothes, driven the second car in the garage, made long-distance calls on our phone and run up our utility bill.

When we called the police, they refused to remove and arrest the criminals. They said that since the family had been in our home for so long and didn’t have anywhere to go, it was only right to let them stay and we be responsible for them. When I protested, the officers called me mean, a racist and a family hater because the parents and children would have to be split up if we kicked them out. Not only that, the woman gave birth while in our home and the officers said we would have to allow the child to become a member of our family and be responsible for her until she was 18.

This is what illegal immigration is in America? Illegal immigrants receive benefits and services only citizens should receive. Children born in this country to illegal immigrants are American citizens already. Shouldn’t at least one parent have to be a citizen first?

Where else in the world can you become a citizen just by being born in a country? They should be deported to their home country with their children and the children who are American citizens allowed to return when they reach adulthood. Our borders need to be secured to make us safe from criminals and terrorists who want to destroy us. If you want to live here, do it legally.
