No. I do not think the can. The children (US born) can apply to immigration for a "green card" for their parents when they reach 21 years old, however.

I think that an immigrant has the right to get custody of his or her child just like an American citizen.As long as they are fit and respondsible parents.

No. The illegal immigrant is returned to their country. The child however, is an American citizen and it is up to the parents to decide whether or not to take the child with them.

No, only when the child is an adult (18) can they request a green card for the parents. They will be illegal until then, unless they marry a citizen or get an employer to sponsor them.

Any child born on U.S. soil is a natural citizen of the U.S. The mother/father does not attain citizenship merely because of the birth. If they were illegally in the U.S. at the time of the birth, they are still considered "Illegal" and are subject to deportation.AnswerIf the child is born in America, he or she is legally an American citizen. If the parent is deported, the child has to have a financial sponsor. AnswerThen, That American-born child can file immigration papers for his/her parents when he/she is 21 years old. It is a long wait, but right now it seems that it's the only way for the parents to become legal immigrants.

The child cannot. The parents, themselves, must apply for citizenship.

The answer to your question is simply, No. Put another way, I think what you're asking is:'If someone is here illegally and has or fathers a child on American soil, does that give that illegal parent automatic US citizenship?'If this is a correct reading of the question, the child born on American soil is a natural-born US citizen, automatically, by Constitutional guarantee. The illegal parent or parents receive no change or exception to their official status as illegal aliens.There are recent cases where a parent, sometimes both parents have indeed been extradited. Even though they had young children born in the US. The American born children could stay. The adjudicated parent had to leave the country.(Previous answerIf they were born in the United States, no. If they are from Cuba, no. Otherwise, yes.

Illegal immigrant children should be educated because they should not be blamed for the actions there parents have done. They should be able to receive the same education Americans do because they are not the one to blame. As an American you have two choices in where you decide your tax money should go to, and that is educated more illegal immigrants or having to support the social service and prison system. if these innocent children do not receive an education they will become illiterate criminals in our society. I am an eight grader who attends Mother Caroline Academy, an all-girls Catholic School, and i have family that immigrated to the U.S. and became citizens and because they did become citizens i stand before you today and am able to provide you with this information and be very well educated and proud to say that i am a Hispanic that supports Illegal immigrant children getting an education. These children could learn to read, write and speak English if we all give to them. If these children become educated, they will want to open businesses which means that they have to hire American citizens to work for them. So they will be giving back to American !! As a young Latina I stand proud and am glad to say I a fourteen year old Dominican named Ashley Mejia answered this question that is such a huge topic in America and did not have a answer for it. I hope i changed the way some Americans may think about Illegal immigrant children not receiving an education. Answer: Children of illegal immigrants are juvenile criminals just as their parents are criminals, they entered this country by illegal means and should not be afforded the rights to education as are Legal immigrants and natural born citizens.. (if illegal immigrants enter this country and then have a child, then yes that child should be educated because by law that child is a citizen as they are born in the USA.) However their parents remain illegal immigrant (criminals) "If these children become educated, they will want to open businesses which means that they have to hire American citizens to work for them. So they will be giving back to American" These Children that entered the US illegally with their parents grow up to be illegal immigrants they are not citizens, therefor they will not open any business, nor hire American workers, nor will they give back to America... The demands on our society by the illegal immigrants are far more than their contributions to our society. US Tax Payers are already supporting enough illegal immigrants by providing welfare, housing, healthcare for illegal criminals they should not be asked to foot the bill to educate illegal children which are in essence juvenile criminals wanted by the federal authorities..

An undocumented immigrant will not be able to file in a passport application on behalf of his/her child. Only a US citizen can do this. However a passport application for a minor child will require the parental consent from both its parents and also the proof of the citizenship status of the parents. Identification documents of both the parents should also be submitted along with the application.
