Kind of hard to humanize people who sneak into this country to steal from us. Anyone who sneaks across our border does so for one reason only and that is to steal. Whether it's a job, housing or a lifestyle it's still stealing. As for the person who ran across the border at the age of 14 - when do you assume responsibility for yourself? Did you register with our government when you turned 18? All those years you attended higher education and taught in this country.did you carry your registration papers with you at all times?
Bottom line is once you turned 18 you became responsible for breaking our laws on your own. You can no longer blame it on your parents.
