Nice deflection. So how many are you taking into your own home? How many do you want to accept responsibility for? 5? 12? 25? Talk is cheap. Step up to the plate and take ownership.

NO. Their parents think that we have to take them. Once in and a path is established the parents think that will be their ticket to the USA.

Giving Obama 3.7 billion is like handing an arsonist a gallon of gas. No good will come of it.

Given the complete irrationality of this logic process is it not reasonable to suspect a racial motive?
The Act was sponsored by Joe Biden, passed by Congress, signed by Bush. Have you read it? It's actually not all that bad, except for the loophole. It's very clear that it concerns sex trafficking, it just needs to be tweeked. Obama can do that, he has a pen. Your suggestion of a racial motive is absurd. Do you live in a border state? They are very diverse, people have been mixing it up down here for eons. Have you ever met a border agent on the border? Most of them are Americans of hispanic descent. They need some help, not all this mindless racial bs.

He should send the money to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador
to keep them there. It would be cheaper.
But no good idea ever happens.

There's not a Snowball chance of that happening. We ALREADY give aid to those countries.

In fact, because those countries are not behaving themselves, we should cut off aid all together until they promise to use it for what it was intended for in the first place.

It didn't take that long to deport Elian Gonzalez.

Well it is in the passed Senate bill for amnesty.
Fast path family reunification to keep the courts from becoming overloaded.

Cuba demanded him back.

The First Lady of Guatemala came to visit them to make sure we were treating them right but she didn't demand they be sent home.

Now she's back in her country telling the world that there is no crime and the kids are lying.
