Not all illegal immigrant children have a choice

On June 14, you published a letter (more like a tirade) from Sonia Glick about so called illegal immigrant children attending college. She said they are here illegally and they should be deported. She also said they can just walk across the border.

Really? Some of these children were brought here by their parents before they could even walk. Coming here was not of their doing.

At one time, children born out of wedlock were called illegitimate. Does that mean that they are also illegal? We could solve a big part of the school funding problem if we stopped allowing any children whose parents are not married from attending school.

She wants to deport the illegal immigrants. Many of them will try to come back again. Wouldn't it be better to follow the tough-on-crime model and execute them? After all, the common statement is that executed criminals cannot commit more crimes. Perhaps if we sold tickets to public executions we could raise enough money to balance the budget.
