Working for logical immigation reform based on a stable population, a recognition of the finite nature of our natural resources and the adverse impact of continued growth on our quality of life, standard of living, national interest, character, language, sovereignty and the rule of law. Pushing back and countering the disloyal elements in American society and the anti-American rhetoric of the leftwing illegal alien lobbies. In a debate, when your opponents turn to name calling, it's a good sign you've already won.

Do Illegals Return to Mexico in Retirement?
Mirror believes that Mexican illegals return to Mexico when their working years are over. Perhaps if they have remained in illegal status, that is one choice they might consider. However, if their children are American citizens as they surely will be if they were born here, isn't it more likely that in the Mexican tradition the parents will remain here and live with one or more of their children? Also as pointed out in the 14th Amendment Babies post, at age 21, the citizen children can arrange permanent residency for their parents. Mirror asks, "Why should children return to Mexico or eslewhere if they are citizens of the U.S.?" The answer is that all minor children belong with their parents, not left to fend for themselves or to impose on other relatives. Children of illegals who have reach their 21st birthdays can do whatever they like which more than likely will be to remain in this country and arrange permanent residency for their parents. The parents may wish to return to Mexico if they think the cost of living is lower and if they think the climate is more hospitable. I had no intention of suggesting children of age 21 or older had any obligation to return to their homelands if they were born in this country because as 14th amendment children they are entitled to remain.
