it's the right choice...
if i were to be put in this kind of situation...i would also choose to stay in Japan and get good education than be in the Philippines and be in a farming community...
and besides, she cant speak Filipino
...i think she'll have a better life in Japan

If I were her then I'd want to stay in Japan too.
Plus,she didn't deport her parents.The immigration did.She just chose not to be deported alongside them.

It says that she could only speak Japanese, so even if she went with her parents there would be a massive language barrier. Her education would probably be halted (due to living in a poor farming community and doubtful of a Japanese to Tagalog class in school). I hope her parents can stay in Japan with her very soon, this is unfortunate, but I doubt that the girl had made this decision without talking to her parents about it. True her parents did break the law, but imo I think they should be fined or something and not deported and separate the family.

That sad for her and her family. In America, if they found out that you are an illegal immigrant, they would send you back and if your children were born there, they have to leave the children in America.


No.

Children born in the U.S. with Undocumented parents still has the right for Child Custody. by the time the child reaches the age of 18, the U.S. Immigration bureau gives him/her the decision either to maintain his Citizenship or Lose it.

I thought she took a pic of Japan instead of her family.
So it was picK after all. Well I think she could stay there
if she wants to...xD. I'll see her next summer. [Vacation.Where does she live? hmm...]
But she should also think of her parents and decide to
visit them once in a while.

For me, family sticks together.

I don't think her decision to stay in Japan was the right one. I would go back to the Philippines with my mother and father.

Atleast in 5 years they can see there "faithful" daughter again;
But I won't blame her for choosing Japan;
She probably ONLY knows japanese and maybe some english;
if she were to go to the Philippines how would she communicate with others?
