Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Best interests

From the Sun-Sentinel-

A Miami federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit seeking to stop immigration officials from deporting undocumented parents of U.S.-born children.

U.S. District Judge Paul Huck threw out the suit after the lawyers who filed it in October said legislation pending in Congress could meet their goals.

The bill they referred to is the Child Citizen Protection Act, which was introduced in the House of Representatives in January. It would allow immigration judges to consider whether deportation of a parent is "clearly against the best interests of a U.S. citizen child."

More than 3 million children born in the United States have parents who are undocumented immigrants, according to researchers at the Washington, D.C.-based Urban Institute.
I see the Judge's decision as regrettable but correct. The law is quite clear and Judge Huck enforced it. TFM doesn't want to see families broken up, but that would only happen if the parents allow it. That is their decision, just like it was for them to enter this country illegally and have a child here. Actions have consequences, not all of them good.
