Thousands of kids who happen to be illegal immigrants are waiting in a number of American facilities now that they have crossed the border illegally. There are kids and most are not from Mexico (they are mostly from Central America), so they can't be quickly sent back.

What do you think should be done in the short term for the illegal immigrant kids from Central America who have already passed into America? (Short Term equals 1-3 months) Please take my poll!

(PLEASE... lets not get into anther general discussion about illegal immigration, but instead, lets vote and discuss what they should do in the short term about the kids who were recently arrested and are now sitting in detention facilities. And remember they are children from crime filled countries but they did break our laws.)

Feed them, clothe them and stick them on a plane and repatriate them to the authorities in their home countries.

The only right thing to do is to take care of their VERY short term needs of shelter and food and find a way to get them back to their home countries ASAP. It is not our issue what the conditions are like in their home countries. The only responsibility of our government is to work as hard as possible to take care of citizens and legal residents of our own country- and that is enough of a financial challenge!

Deport them. ALL illegal immigrants should be deported. they broke the law, therefore they are CRIMINALS!
I voted for their home country, but sending them to Mexico would suffice.
Feed them, give them a box lunch (use donated food from a food pantry), give them 2 sets of (donated) clothes from a thrift store, and send them home!

Ship them back.

It's time for the idiots in D.C. to realize that we need to enforce the laws on the books, and put an end to this nonsense on the border.

Winner!

Also find a way to punish the home country...financially speaking.

Yep. The ones in my state have been vaccinated and are being fed and clothed. Now send them back from whence they came. Pronto!
