American in birth, not in mind

Many children born to illegal immigrants in the United States do not feel like Americans because their parents speak only of their country, Mexico.

I have spoken to grown children of illegal immigrants who were born in America but cannot wait to grow old, get Social Security and move back to Mexico. The illegal immigrants feel that their country is not America, and in turn, allow their children to also feel that America is not their country.

The children may be American citizens according to the law, but in fact never feel like a true American.

That they are American by birth does not make them American in their hearts and minds.
