I find it deplorable that someone would use a young girl to push a political agenda. This girl was used as a tool by the those that are out to demonize those that only want the law to be followed. where are those crying out about those that abuse this young girl by setting her up for this? Why didn't the father think about the repurcussions of his CRIME? There are thousands in the penitentiary now that have children, why should this man be any different? Yes this is jolly bad form to put a young innocent girl in front of you and use her for a shield to protect your butt from the repurcussions of your crime. In some parts of the world this might be a war crime.
Gawd forbid should the day ever come that the SHTF and American citizens desperately try to flee their country, for whatever reason, on foot in search of sanctuary elsewhere...
Then you need to start with your government's (and their corporate bosses) involvement in freely shipping and aiding them across the border to do cheap manual labour that Americans aren't doing because they're too busy making a better income collecting their food stamps and welfare cheques, eating bon bons, and watching Honey Boo Boo.

One more time, it doesnt matter wether they were cheering the answer. Cheering at all bearing in mind the consequences of the answer for that girls family was impossibly bad form, and those people should be ashamed of themselves.

I agree, I think it's horrible that she was even brought there. The parents arn't stupid. This is a child and they knew damned well the possibility of her getting her feelings hurt and her hopes dashed. They KNEW this yet allowed it anyway! If I had a child and even if she wanted to be there and speak, I wouldn't have allowed it at that age. Common sense alone tells you the possibility of hurt feelings would be high at these events.

For the illegals to use children to get what they want is horrible. Of course it is sad that they should get seperated but the parent took that risk knowing this could happen. Many children all across the USA have been seperated from a parent who made bad choices and we don't treat them as special and change laws to help them be with their law breaking parent.
That's just it, we have laws and we can't pick and choose which ones we wish to follow. Illegals never want to take personal responsibility for their actions, instead they use their children and sad stories to get what they want. We have tons of sad stories from our own citizens. Do we change the laws for them?

Another new low for the GOP (as if they could get any lower). It's bad enough that they cheered letting uninsured people die at a Ron Paul rally, now they think it's funny that children might lose their parents, and yet these same people are always telling us that they care about people, and their reputation as mean and cold-hearted is undeserved. Don't believe them.
