Madoff's Son a Martyr to Our Selfishness

Mark Madoff, 46, son of infamous Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff, apparently hanged himself in his Manhattan apartment.

Here's a man who became accustomed to a certain standard of living based, without his knowledge, upon crimes committed by his father. Following Bernie Madoff's conviction, most of his vast, ill-gotten fortune was confiscated by the government, leaving his family relative paupers.

Why should the children be made to suffer for the sins of the parents?

Madoff's despair cries out for passage of the DREAM Act, allowing the children of illegals to hang on to the manifold benefits of American society - stolen fair and square by their parents.
