Should children of who are illegal
But born in these United States
Be sanctioned or be extralegal
And so abandoned to their fates?
Or should they be, with due solemnity,
Granted a citizen’s indemnity
From deportation to a home
They never knew so couldn’t roam
Away from just to cross a border
From Mexico or anywhere
Their parents didn’t have a prayer
Of living with some law and order-
Where they could start new family trees
And live with us for shopping sprees?
