It is beyond despicable. I remember triple digit lines daily for months on in on my way to work during the '86 amnesty. I thought they would never end. Who knew I'd still be alive to see "the last amnesty", again.

How's that for flagrant disregard of our laws on abuse.
What shameless slime. They would rather leave their child alone to fend for him/herself, than to risk being outed as an illegal. Let's hope the child never contracts a life-threatening disease or suffers a serious injury. Far be it for these pigs to go to the hospital to comfort their child.

On a Border Wars program severasl months ago, two 8 year old girls were picked travelling throught the desert with a bunch of illegal aliens. The man who was accompanying them first said he was their father. When his name didn't match the father's, he said he was their uncle. That wasn't true either, so he said he was a friend of the family who agreed to bring the girls over. I don't know if that was true or not, but the girls were taken and turned over to the Mexican Consulate, which I think was a great idea. All unaccompanied minors should be turned over to their respective consulates. Let them deal with it.

Agreed; it's a recipe for disaster but as long as we're giving our financial system to China and what remains of our jobs to Indians and Mexicans, nobody seems to care.

Well, you see what's of prime importance to illegal aliens. Unfortunately it's not their children.

Surge of children crowding immigration courts
Immigration courts in this South Texas border town and across the country are confronting an unexpected surge of children, some of them barely school age, who traveled here without parents and were caught as they tried to cross illegally into the United States.
..
The rush of young illegal border crossers began last fall but picked up speed this year, according to official figures. From October through July, the authorities detained 21,842 unaccompanied minors, most at the Southwest border, a 48 percent increase over a year earlier.
The title of the thread is slightly different than the article "without parents" being added.

Could it be that their parents are in the US? If so, they are trying to reunite with their family.

If reuniting was the case, the parents should return to the country where their children are, not have their children endangered by being smuggled into the US.

I can only imagine what the fate was for some of the children who don't make it to the final destination where there is no "reuniting". Who would those "parents" (I use that word loosely) going to complain to? Mexico wouldn't care. They won't go to the US authorities because they would have to admit to being illegal and more than likely be deported.

Is it wise for these parents to ditch their kids in the homeland to come here in the first place? Ok, let's say they left them with a responsible relative with the intent that they come and join them here eventually. It is wise for them to allow them to travel alone or with a paid coyote knowing full well that they are being put in harm's way?

Is it wise? To whom? Early 1900's Irish kids would travel alone by wooden boat from County Cork to NYC, leaving their parents behind. When you are poor, and oppressed, risk can be wise.

I'm afraid there is a whole other world out there that many Americans cannot relate to.

Really, do you have a link for your assertions about Irish "kids"? Today, the risks are much higher especially on our southern border with the drug cartels and coyotes. Crossing a burning desert is much riskier also. I think most Americans are aware of the poverty within our own country. From what I understand Mexicans who are coming here in the largest numbers illegally aren't for the most part starving in their own country. You have to remember that the Irish came here legally also. A world of difference between coming here within our immigration laws and coming here illegally.
