    To get a green card through a U.S. citizen child, an undocumented parent must live ab

    Not our illegals thanks to Obama and the socialist Democrats, they just stay in place and keep swiping their EBT cards. This person qualified for the '86 amnesty.

    To get a green card through a U.S. citizen child, an undocumented parent must live abroad for 10 years

    GETTY
    A view of the border separating the Mexican town of Tijuana from San Diego, Calif., in 2014. An undocumented parent of U.S. citizen children who snuck into the U.S. must live abroad in their home country for 10 years to become eligible to apply for permanent residence in the U.S.


    Q. I came here more than 30 years ago and I have three U.S. citizen children. My oldest is now over 21. A lawyer told my son that because I snuck into the United States, I can't get a green card. With U.S. citizen children, how come I can’t get legal status?

    A. Before you can get a green card through your son, you would have to live abroad for 10 years. That’s the sad truth.

    With politicians complaining about children born here to undocumented immigrants, calling them “anchor babies,” you’d think that having a U.S. citizenship child would lead to an easy path to legal status. It doesn’t.

    First, to petition for a parent, a child must be at least age 21. Then, if the parent entered without being inspected by a U.S. immigration officer, as you did, the parent must return home for the green card interview. Parents who must leave the country to get a green who have been here unlawfully for a year or more, must stay abroad for 10 years before they can return to the U.S. A waiver of this 10-year bar to reentry is available only to applicants with a U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse or parent. Most undocumented parents of U.S. citizens don’t have the required family ties.

    The complaint about anchor babies is silly, unless you think undocumented immigrants come here to give birth to a U.S. citizen just to wait 31 years (10 of these years being abroad away from their children) to get a green card.

    Last November, President Obama announced a program that would grant temporary legal status to the parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents. That program is stalled as Republicans fight it in the federal courts. If the courts allow the Obama program to proceed, you can get temporary status and travel permission. If you return travel abroad with that travel permission, you will have made a lawful entry, giving you the right to interview here for your green card. Then, the 10-year bar won’t apply to you. Let’s hope the courts uphold the President’s plan.

    Why would any government official believe it's appropriate, acceptable, legal or constitutional for persons banned from our country to breed our citizens?

    This law is in place to discourage this woman and anyone else from illegally immigrating to the United States. It is an important law that we should not change because if we do we submit to this rape of our nation and will only invite more illegal aliens by doing so!

    There should be no more green cards for at least 10 years. We need at least a 10 Year Moratorium on Immigration, all forms, and we need it now. The woman in this article should be deported with all her children under the age of 26, the definition age of a minor under ObamaCare and the Dream Act. If it's a good age for those, then Democrats should have no argument against it for deportation purposes.

    Wonder how much in benefits she got for those anchor babies before they reached adulthood? NOW she wants a green card?!?! Probably because NOW she needs to WORK!
