  1. Roger help me understand this, These guys are deported, I am to assume they were here illegally and in that not by choice but because parents brought them and raised them here and its the only life they know.. When we have a state full of illegals and they are not being deported back to Mexico, I don’t get it, Its so wrong, my heart goes out to these young men.
