Everyone seems to have lost sight of the real fact here: the parents of 1200 children are in Israel illegally. I don't say that all the parents (with their children, since it would be inhuman to separate families) should be deported, BUT I don't think they should all be rewarded, either. Illegal immigration is a problem all over the world. Why must Israel be more "liberal" and more "humanitarian" than every other country with the same problem? The children are NOT the problem, they're a PR ploy to get people to forget that the PARENTS are here illegally.
