I am quite sure i will get attacks for this thread. SO WHAT!

Seems that our past is following us. I sure don't have the answer. The children are here and imo sending them back will results in quite a few innocent children dying.

IMO Anyone that says i would stay in my country and work to make things better is just wearing blinders.
Were it my family starving and facing the prospect of being murdered by gangs the i would jump on that BEAST in a minute.




"What choice do I have but to go north?"

We came because it was our opportunity to survive, because counterinsurgency forces, known now to have been financed by the Reagan administration, fought a dirty war in El Salvador. It claimed the lives of 70,000 people and displaced 1 million more.


Opinion: Like those children, I fled Central America - CNN.com

So this is all Reagan's fault.

I figured someone would have to find a Republican to blame for all this.

Not just Reagan. Are you denying that Reagan didn't play a part?

I don't blame people for trying to enter the country illegally. I understand their motives. The thing is, we have laws in place that are supposed to prevent this as the consequences of allowing anyone and everyone into our country are not good.

Feed them, vaccinate them, clothe them, then repatriate them. And just what did this administration do to cause all these children to come North?
