Illegal Aliens vs. Zygotes

Zygote: a cell that is formed when an egg and a sperm combine : a fertilized egg. There are people in our country that say that a zygote is a person and should receive the full protection of the law based on that personhood.

There are also people who say that say that children that are in our country without documented citizen or resident alien status should be sent back to where they came from, no matter what the conditions. Are they thinking of those children as persons?

Does the zygote have citizen papers? No. So if he or she is eventually born in Mexico, tough luck.

I must admit, I am baffled.
