It is amazing to what an extent these posters do not understand what is going on.

The illegals have found a hole in the US law and are taking advantage of it. The proper response is to modify the law but how to do that is not clear and will be contentious perhaps to the level of being unable to do it.

And note that these children may well not be illegal or breaking any law. They turn themselves in to the Border Patrol as soon as in the US. And some likely have a legitimate claim to escape terror.

What a mess....

IMO, they should have to prove it because I am willing to bet that the majority if any aren't escaping violence. They have been told to say that so that they will be considered to be refugees. It is a mess and it will be take its toll on the American pocketbook, schools and healthcare systems.

Either these aren't the "little kids" we think they are or they are mighty BIG little kids.

ICE is sounding the alarm.."underwear crisis". They need tens of thousands of pairs of 5x and 6x men's underwear.

Are we importing obesity ?

Must be some pretty big 4 year olds. Anyone who wears those sizes of underwear aren't kids. Once again we've been duped.

No you have not been duped. The earliest reports said that over 90% of the children were 15 or older.

Funny how people get upset when other people post that these Countries have a lot of bad areas, are corrupt and aren't that great of a place to live, until it benefits them or their family then these places are hell holes.


Yet, they will riot and fly the flag of these Countries here if they win a stupid soccer game.

I suspect their own countries are getting rid of their gangs and dumping prisons and all their unwed mothers and other social problems.

Agree with malamute here since most of those illegal aliens ain't exactly "high quality" people by LatAm standards being most of them are some kind of ignorant Indian. Word is the "white" people in LatAm are on the top with dark skin ones way down the list.
