Get out your hankies: Nina Bernstein has another article

Nina Bernstein - the NYT's answer to Sally Struthers - offers us "Caught Between Parents and the Law". Apparently the barrage of letters to Daniel Okrent have had an effect, because none of the usual euphemisms or outright lies jumped out at me. Nevertheless, I keep getting the feeling that, like other immigration-related sob stories - this story somehow found its way into the NYT with the assistance of the AILA or some similar group. Here's the bottom line: don't have children here while you're an illegal alien or your status is not clear expecting "liberals" to save you. It's not fair to the children, to you, or to us.
