People coming here illegally is an issue that needs to be resolved, but I'm not sure what the best way to dissuade people from coming here actually is. Deporting them back to their country is the obvious thing to do, but that isn't "scary" enough to convince people that they shouldn't come here illegally. These people have the media on their side (for the most part), but what do the victims (the parents, not the children, obviously) actually have to say about it, knowing that they illegally came here in the first place? What's their defense, and wouldn't they have come to expect repercussions?
