…that it should make the most sense to “America is exceptional” conservatives that making these kids Americans is the best protection you have. You can school ’em up and in a few years, in our present economy, they’re working behind the counter at McDonalds and enlisting in the army to go fight at the old homestead.
Make them American and the worst is they’ll protest for citizenship (if the GOP keeps blocking reform).
If you cast them to the winds, homeless, hungry, desperate, you make potential radicals willing to strap a bomb on them. Boom!
