Good Grief: Six-Year-Old Child of Illegal Aliens Could Get Debate Question

Posted by on Oct 07, 2016 at 7:59 am

It’s not as if the media has any credibility left, so why not?  Naturally, there’s a coordinated campaign by Democrats to make this happen.

“If you deport my parents, what happens to me?”

That’s the question 6-year-old Sophie Cruz wants to ask the presidential nominees at Sunday night’s town hall debate.

Cruz’s question about immigration is getting attention on social media as part of an effort to put the question to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump.

“If you deport my parents, what happens to me? I am 6 years old and an American citizen. I have a 3 year old sister who is also an American. My heart is very sad, because I’m scared that ICE is going to deport my undocumented mommy and daddy,” reads the text of Cruz’s question as posted on the Open Debate Coalition website.

Celebrities such as hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons have tweeted in support of Cruz, as have many immigration activists.

Cruz’s question is one of more than 11,000 posted on, a site created by a bipartisan group dedicated to bringing political debates “fully into the Internet age.”

The site says ABC and CNN moderators have agreed to consider the top 30 questions, which users can vote on, for inclusion in presidential debates.

Cruz’s question had about 11,700 votes on Thursday evening, while the top question on the site had just shy of 42,800. That question — “Would you support requiring criminal background checks for all gun sales?” — comes from Richard M. from California.

Bipartisan, my ass. As if gun sales, greater than ever thanks to Obama,  is a major concern. But still, exploiting a six-year-old child with clearly staged question is just beyond the pale, so expect it to happen.

    She had a child actor ask a staged question about body image at a Pennsylvania town hall on Tuesday so how do we know the six year old child of lifetime democrat voters is real?

    Perhaps the response to this question should be

    Then you would most likely want to go home with your parents who love you and are the best to care for you. Being separated would most likely be more traumatic. When you are of legal age you could decide to come back to the US if you choose. Perhaps when you are back in your country you might decide that you want to change your country when you grow up and will become an agent of change for good.
