I would also get rid of the entire Anchor baby thing they have going on. Bam have a baby here and you are a citizen to take care of the child.

Its probably the biggest used American ticket there is.

I am glad they are ridding our country of illegals or imigrants who have commited crimes. America has enough American criminals we don't need to add more.

Every illegal immigrant work takes a job from an American.

(Reposted) Sorry, I don't buy into the theory that we should dismiss or downplay someone's conduct or responsibility because they have a family. I also laughed at the comment "simply because he forged a check". The asshole would not feel that way if someone did that to them. Forged checks can and DO effect others, not just help out the perpetrator. Forged checks can be directly linked to Identify Theft which causes innocent people to get bad credit ratings, repossessions, foreclosures and IRS problems. These "victimless" or "white collar" crimes are not really victimless.

As far as deporting people, ICE does not just send them back. Their families have the option to go with them and we have social services WITHIN the immigration system that will assist in making that transition as smooth as possible. Families are seperated all the time, not just illegal immigrants. Every person sentenced to prison is removed from their family, many government workers and those who serve in the military are subject to assignments, some long term, away from their families.

I do believe we should increase the number of work visas we offer every year, but at that same time we need to secure our borders. I empathize with people who live in countries that are poor and wish to come to the United States for a better life - but I do not sympathize with anyone who breaks the law to do it. Life is not always "fair", but without the rule of law we would have chaos.

WASHINGTON - An estimated 1.6 million children and spouses have been separated from family members forced to leave the country under toughened 1996 immigration laws, a human rights group said Wednesday.

The separations have taken a toll on families who have sold homes, lost jobs, lost businesses or been thrown into financial turmoil, Human Rights Watch said in a new report.

The widespread impact on American families has been truly devastating, said Alison Parker, a senior researcher with Human Rights Watch.

In 1996, Congress toughened immigration laws making immigrants, legal and illegal, deportable according to an expanded list of "aggravated felonies."

Congress made the law retroactive even to those who had served their sentences, and also eliminated hearings in which judges could consider an immigrant's family, community roots, military service or possible persecution in his or her native country.

Since this law was passed, 672,593 immigrants have been deported for crimes, according to statistics cited in the report from Citizenship and Immigration Services, a division of the Homeland Security Department. Human Rights Watch used those numbers and Census data on foreign-born households to estimate how many family members were left behind in the U.S.

According to statistics from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (or ICE), 64.6 percent of immigrants deported in 2005 had been convicted of nonviolent offenses. An additional 20.9 percent were deported for crimes involving violence against people, and 14.7 percent were deported for "other" crimes. ICE has not released similar statistics for previous years.

"How do you explain to a child that her father has been sent thousands of miles away and can never come home simply because he forged a check?" Parker said.

The statistics don't show the full picture, said Kelly Nantel, Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman. "A non-violent offense like drugs can contribute to violence of society."

Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement immigrants who violate the law forfeit their right to be in the U.S.

Steve Camorata, Center for Immigration Studies research director, said family members can leave with the deported immigrants. "Children constantly bear the consequences of their parents' poor decisions," he added.

Chiara, who did not want her last name used, said she and her two children tried to live where her husband was deported on a six-year-old misdemeanor domestic violence conviction. He served three days.

"We became homeless for quite a while. I was out of work when they deported him because I needed back surgery," said Chiara, who is a waitress.

Two immigrants ordered deported, Wayne Smith and Hugo Armendariz, have filed a complaint against the U.S. government with the Inter-American Commission for Human Rights. A hearing is scheduled Friday.

The commission enforces human rights treaties that apply in the Americas.
