It's how you were raised
In the San Francisco Chronicle recently, there was a typical liberally slanted article about the families of illegal immigrants and how badly they suffer when the males in the family are deported back to Mexico after being arrested for illegal activity such as passing bad checks, etc.
In others words, according to liberals, once illegals have commited one illegal act, they are able to disregard Amerca's laws at will, whenever they feel like it, and with zero repercussions.
Shame placed upon a person's family has always been a deterent to criminal activity. I have no doubt that many young Black men in the inner city have been able to resist peer pressure to commit heinous and criminal acts because they have too much love and respect for their mothers to subject them to shame.
If illegal immigrants do not want their families to suffer it is up to them to prevent it. They and they alone are responsible for their actions and the results of their actions. It is not our problem at all.
We have American citizens who are jailed and their families are left to fend for themselves as well. Women who become involved with criminals and other irresponsible men deserve what they get and they and their progeny are selected against.
The article prompted a letter writer to ask liberals, "What is it about "illegal" that you don't understand?"
