These kids have known no other real home. They have grown up here, in many cases not even aware they were undocumented until they applied to college or looked for their first jobs. They are going to school, paying taxes, buying cars and homes, in short contributing to our economy. What could possibly be gained by deporting them to countries they don't even remember where they may not even speak the language. They are already assimilated. They will make ideal citizens and contribute to the growth our nation needs if the recent tax bill is not to blow up the deficit.
