    Once again, the absolute and obvious differences between the United States and other nations come to the fore. Many undocumented children receive benefits in the US because our laws don't require evidence of legal residence or citizenship. Now Mexico shows it true colors by making it extremely difficult, if not impossible, for its own citizens to receive benefits in a country where by law they are citizens. Mexico continues to make life as an illegal resident in the US easier than life in their own nation.

    Children born to US citizens outside the US simply have to register the birth at a US Consulae or Embassy. When they return to the US they have instant access to benefits to which they are entitled.

    It's not a problem and they don't lose their rights, they just need to fill out the papers.

    Citizens not filling out papers in the US have just as much, if not more problems.

    The story is not a problem, but a lack of following laws.

    We should have made living in the US more hospitable for them. We benefit from their presence.
