Our immigration system is so broke that there shoul be done something about it. It is destroying many families and the life or our children is at stake. Just because a person makes a mistake doesn’t mean to classify him/her and then deport. They paid with their time and money for it and shouldn’t be deported. It is double jepordy. We are all citizens of this world. We all have the same rights. Our US born children suffer because of this. I am a US citizen with 2 born US citizens but my husband is a green card holder and because of that and a mistake he did couple of years ago and paid with 3 years and 10 months and still presently in the custody of ICE awayithng the decision of the immigration judge it is not fair to deport him. He has a family here in US, and we need his support. My children will be left without their father because of this immigration law that was passed in 1996. People stand up, it could be you next, think a little and put your selves in that families place.

I was incorrect – it could allow an undocumented parent to appeal their deportation, but it also could allow a documented parents or legal permanent resident to appeal their deportation (see my comment below about aggravated felonies)

This legislation is not related to illegal immigration, but deports legal permanent residents and legal immigrants.

The lack of ability to appeal deportation orders prevents access to a fair justice system by naturalized citizens & legal immigrants. It specifically relates to “aggravated felony,” expanded in the 1996 IIRIRA legislation, & is a made-up category of crimes that only immigrants can commit (is not contained in criminal law). This category MANDATES deportation for any LEGAL immigrant or LEGAL PERMANENT RESIDENT who has committed a crime from a defined list, including crimes “of moral turpitude” (a broadly interpretable category-http://bit.ly/IKx3R @ US Dept of State) that could result in a conviction of at least one year in prison, REGARDLESS IF THE PERSON RECEIVES THAT SENTENCE. This means that a person who shoplifts $50 of clothing could be deported, even if their sentence is 6 months of community service. People who came over as refugees can be deported back to a country where they may be persecuted again. The category is supposed to maintain public safety, but is no longer about that.

THIS BILL HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ILLEGAL ALIENS!
READ THE BILL!!!!!!We are in America the country who fights for a human rights!In the past fiscal year, nearly 350,000 people were deported, leaving behind thousands of American kids who need their moms and dads. A study released by Congressman Serrano in February of 2009 found that from 1998 – 2007 more than 100,000 parents of U.S. citizen children were deported. Currently, due to changes in laws in 1996, immigration judges have no discretion in almost all deportation cases and effectively serve to rubber stamp deportation orders. The Child Citizen Protection Act (HR 182) is the only bill currently in Congress that unties the hands of immigration judges to consider the best interests of U.S. citizen children during deportation proceedings.This bill is for ligal immigrants.Everyone deserves a second chance!Visit a site http://www.familiesforfreedom.org/index.html.I promiss your heart will break!!

I trully have a problem with so many illegal aliens flooding into this country to have their babies on my/your tabs. This is part of the problem with the medical system. Go into an ER room and see all the illegals getting medical care and simple checkup for their kids and NEVER pay.
LET them be deported and come in legally with supporters as my grandparents had to.
I am tired to supporting them.

Ok for those who think they know lets just shed light on the issue :
1- to be in the country Illegally IS NOT A CRIMINAL OFFENSE THEREFORE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT CRIMINALS DESPITE WHAT THE WHITE SUPREMACY, TANCREDO, LIMBAUGH AND HANNITY SAY SO PLEASE LET GO OF THE WORD CRIMINAL.
2- Now I will remind about the Human rights of children http://www.unhchr.ch/html/menu3/b/k2crc.htm
“Convinced that the family, as the fundamental group of society and the natural environment for the growth and well-being of all its members and particularly children, should be afforded the necessary protection and assistance so that it can fully assume its responsibilities within the community.Recognizing that the child, for the full and harmonious development of his or her personality, should grow up in a family environment, in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding”
3- To fix this mess yes we should try to end birthright citizenship but you cant go retroactive.

anonymous,
I think both the parent and child should be DEPORTED, due to the fact that the parent was here ILLEGALLY, in the first place, and BREAKING THE LAW, by being here ILLEGALLY.

Don’t forget there is a way for an immigrant to legally enter this country. An illegal alien is breaking the law. Why should we allow that? The prisons are too crowded anyway. Just deport the whole family.

ALL I CAN SAY IS NO MATTER WHAT NATIONALITY I OWN, I WOULD NOT WANT TO BE SEPERATED FROM MY FAMILY UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES. I UNDERSTAND PEOPLE BREAK LAWS AND MUST BE PUNISHED, BUT WE HAVE PRISONS FOR THOSE WHO BREAK THE LAW. I JUST FEEL IN MY HEART THIS IS NOT FAIR ESPECILLAY IF THE PERSON OR IMMIGRANT HAS PAID A PRICE BY BEING INCARCEARATED IN ONE OF OUR PRISONS. WHY SHOULD THE CHILDREN THEN HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE OF BEING LEFT WITHOUT PARENTS. I AM A HUMAN BEING AND I WAS BROUGHT UP WITH A FAMILY.

pray tell me, what was this country was built on?
theft of land, resources, murder, germ warfare, slavery, robber barons,
lies. Want more?
Sure we paint ourselves as the “goog guys” sadly this is only the makeup that we put on our faces to appease our transgressions.
Go read history, for gods sake.
Sadly, the comments from the others is a true. Wiah it were not,but alas it is true. Been there wittnessed that.

Both comments above are absolute rubbish, and against everything this country has been build on.

If a man brings his currently, or soon to be pregnant wife to this country, and she then delivers this child, both of the parents being illegal immigrants, Citizenship should not be automatically conferred to the child. This would eliminate the problem of having to deport the natural parents of a citizen. It is a criminal act that brought them here, and the medical care costs are going to be paid by the citizens of this country as it is.

Bad Idea. This is an open invitation for would-be parents to keep coming into this country and having USC babies. Jus Solo needs to be gone! Other countries have gotten rid of it, because of the huge burden it began to have on their social benefit systems. Not only are foreign nationals coming to have USC babies, they are not even paying for the births, further burdening our health care system. Health care facilities are by law forced to treat those in need of emergency care. These women are getting on board flights literally days and weeks before their babies are due. Lord, please do not head us down a path that would invite or encourage more of the same we already suffer with.
