I'm talking about kids just out of high school who stay in a dead-end town because a parent is helpless and crippled. Situations like that.

Not to different than what my mother and grandmother went through. You know what immigrants do - they send money back to their home country to help support the elderly parent who cannot work until the time they can get a green card or become a citizen and sponsor the elderly parent to immigrate to the US too.

And in your fantasy of this crippled, helpless parent - do you want to explain how they're not getting SSDI if they've been perm. disabled a year and are too helpless to care for themselves?
