Citizen of nowhere

This article in the Sun is about a young lady who is an illegal alien. She is a model student and would make a great citizen of the United States. However, she is illegal and cannot become a citizen.

The article states,
Jessica, whose name has been changed in this story to protect her identity, is one of hundreds of thousands of undocumented residents whose immigration was their parents’ decision and not their own. She was 4 when her father used a work visa to move their family from Mexico to Los Angeles and then to Las Vegas a year later.

It is her parents fault for not doing things legally. They are the ones who have caused this problem for their daughter. Our Country is not responsible for her parents ruining their daughter's life.

However, our Country did enable her parents by allowing them to remain here and providing schooling and other assistance. We should get tough on illegal aliens and not provide them with services.

However, I do not believe that we should punish their children. We should allow them to return to their country and then apply for immigration without any repercussions for living here illegally.

It is time to face this problem head on and do something about it.
