This is not a humanitarian issue but a multinational crisis that should be solved diplomatically with the cooperation of the source country's leadership and the US.

In the mean time, let's raise them at the (currently stockpiled but uninhabited) FEMA camps, teach them English and based on their aptitude, applicable skills. When they come of age issue guest worker credentials (not citizenship) and garnish wages for their upbringing. AND LISTEN.... (hat tip NSA)

This is boundlessly irresponsible on behalf of these parents but they probably loaded their kids up with enough information/ photos, so at some point they might be able to reconnect.

Load this info into our security databases and when the parents DO come, charge and prosecute. With scores if not thousands of incarcerations, its likely the multinational crisis will shift polarity. At which point we can use the 'bill' to barter for strategic military bases, hydro electric power, oil, beachfront property and such.

Playing the long game to our advantage so that's about as humanitarian that I can be right now.

I disagree that we should raise these kids that don't belong here but are the citizens of another country. Why should we at the taxpayer's expense? Don't we have enough on our plate raising and paying for our own kids upbringing?

Giving them guest worker rights when they become of age is also a bad idea, IMO. Our own American youth are having a problem finding a job. How are they going to survive if their wages are garnished to pay for their upbringing in this country?

I don't disagree - put them on a plane and fly them back to their home countries.

Same thing applies, what's wrong with sending them back AND billing their homelands?

Because that's not how our laws were enacted.
Illegal families are caught and released and then told to "show up on a certain date" about them being here illegally.

We DO NOT just send them back after they have entered this country.

Word spreads about what the US is doing (stealth amnesty).
You think people in other countries aren't aware of this ?
You think the illegals here aren't telling their families "back home" how it's safe here now for them ?

We have "Camp of the Saints" happening only you don't see the boatloads of people landing on the shores.

Border Patrol reports huge increases of captured illegals and I'm sure they only capture a fraction of those that cross.

Pregnant women are flying to the US just to have their US citizen babies.

The US and Canada are the only two first world nations that don't require the parents to be citizens.
How come Canada doesn't have this illegal problem that the US does ?

This increase in children is a direct result of the Liberals trying to push thru the dream act, Millions of South Americans are trying to get there children here for the upcoming amesty that is the dream act to act as anchors for the whole family.

Tell us again Mr. President how "secure" that border is......

Meanwhile military bases in border states are being turned into foster homes for them and is now getting FEMA involved.
