If you were a teenager in the mid-1990’s you might remember a TV show called Party of Five.
It was about five siblings who were orphaned when their parents were killed in a car crash, and the eldest, a 24-year-old college dropout had to man up and raise the rest of the kids.
Now, 19 years after the original show ended, it is getting a “relevant” reboot.

So instead of the parents dying, they are deported for being illegals.
I just want to check some facts we can see from the trailer.
For the eldest brother to get legal custody of his siblings, he has to be at least 18 years old, and if they stick with the format of the original show, he’s in his early 20’s.
They apparently live in a decent middle-class house, so they have some money.
The kids are not being deported, so they must be either US citizens or DREAMers.
So… mom and dad have been in the country illegally for 18-24 years and have been financially successful enough to achieve middle-class status, but never went about the process of becoming legal immigrants?
And I’m supposed to have sympathy for them?
No. Sorry, but no.
You don’t get to skirt the law for two decades and then act like victims when you get caught.
The good news is: this looks like very Woke TV, so it will go broke fast.
