Yeah i agree. That's why i can't bring myself to come to the plight of the parents.
Im stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to Immigration reform.
On one hand, we have these young adults who've grown up since grade school with an American Education, and are completely able to contribute to the country, but are forced to sit on the couch and be a drain on society instead. The only home that they've ever known wants to label them a bunch of uneducated, dirty illegals and wants them shipped out to a country that they have no memory of. That's an injustice and it's just not fair.
On the other hand, we have their parents and grand parents who are stubborn in their ways, or are too lazy or just just not bright enough to assimilate. They came here illegally and created this problem in the first place. They are the ones who will NOT have anything to contribute and end up further burdening our welfare system.
Somewhere inbetween is a solution and i think the OP is a damn good start, and something that people on both sides of the fence can get on board with.
What worries me is our welfare system. I think that needs to be addressed before immigration can be fixed. The teet can't take anymore suckling.
