Illegal Immigrants

Long past time to draw the line

Regarding the article, "Living the Dream Act": While I feel empathy for Ray Corona after reading the front page of The Herald on Sunday, I am not in favor of the Dream Act. While Ray was brought here through no fault of his own, what of his parents? They are still here illegally, do we deport them, and break up the family? There is no reason that the people in this situation should get preference over people that go through the legal process. While Ray seems like a typical, all-American guy, the truth is he and his family are illegal immigrants and should be treated as such.
There must be a penalty for his parents breaking the law. Where does it stop if we just keep looking the other way and feel sorry for them. We have to draw a line somewhere or the illegal flow will never stop. Time to draw that line has long passed. Isn't it funny that it seems that most of the Democrats are always in favor of this kind of thing. Maybe it's just to garner votes and stay in power. I'm just saying.
