    As was my father, a child at the time. There was a good chance that they'd have been killed, locked up for years, or had everything taken away from them had they remained in their home countries. My father might not have been killed, but he could have been orphaned, if not actually, then effectively. But they were lucky enough to have somewhere to go, legally, where they could be safe, housed, clothed, fed and educated, and live like human beings.

    This country was founded and built by immigrants, both voluntary and forced, and by their descendants, which includes most of us. How we can turn those who literally have nowhere else to go away, is beyond me. Shame on us.

    But keep up that tough on illegal immigration cred, Obama. You will forever be beloved by the beltway media set for it. Should make for a nice showcase in your future presidential library. It takes a tough man to deport children to their likely deaths but someone's got to do it. I mean, they're too young to pick lettuce so what good are they to us here?
