An Atlanta municipal judge has assigned the seven immigrant youth who are undocumented to community service yesterday, promising to drop charges against the youth once they finish their assigned work. Good news for these kids and for the many immigrant youth that flooded twitter with requests to raise bail of $2,000 each. It's important to note that immigration proceedings occur outside of the criminal courts and there's no word on whether immigration authorities will take any action.
My feeling is they won't. It's too politically sensitive to deport a bunch of kids who have been raised in the United States and want a college education back to countries they don't know. But if it's too politically sensitive to deport them and unfair? Why is it too sensitive and unfair to say they can't stay and become citizens?
