Childrens are the victims in illegal immigration...

I know that the issue of illegal immigration has to be dealt with, though I still firmly believe the way to stop it is to go after the employers, perhaps if they were subjected to things like this:
Escoto and at least 360 other illegal immigrants were taken into custody here March 6 after a raid by federal agents on the Michael Bianco Inc. factory -- a military contractor 60 miles south of Boston. Many of them, including Escoto, 38, were women whose detention separated them from their children, some of whom were stranded at day-care centers, schools, or friends' or relatives' homes.

Immigration officials said they made provisions for the children so none would be left alone. But in the days right after the raid -- as a 7-year-old called a hotline and asked for her mother, and a breastfeeding baby refused a bottle and was hospitalized for dehydration -- Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) began to categorize the raid's aftermath as a "humanitarian crisis."

Escoto, like most of those detained, was flown to a holding center in Texas as deportation proceedings began. A single mother, she was separated from her two young children, who were born in the United States and are U.S. citizens. Daniel, 2, asked for her constantly, while relatives worried about the care of frail 4-year-old Jessie -- who cannot walk and suffers from an illness that prevents her from absorbing enough nutrition.

Both children were in day care when their mother was arrested, leaving Escoto's sister scrambling to care for them along with her own two children.

They might think twice about hiring illegal immigrants in the first place. While of course those who come here have to take responsibility for their own actions, the employers get away with this and just hire the next batch of illegals...

Not only a spammer, but a lying one.

To get poor Lisa's hopes up, only to find that LCS is not, in fact, "tops for the word 'diamond.'"

Oh, the humanity...
