I wonder if anybody on this forum knows or cares about the US policies and direct interference in Central America that forced people to leave to save their own lives and those of their children?

Yes, we are all well aware.

Still, it's no excuse for anyone to come here (or another country) illegally. Period. Besides, many of those illegal aliens that sneaked in here, left behind their children. If things were so bad and they left their children, that makes them horrible parents.

We can't take in the entire third world without sinking to third world status ourselves.

That article was about El Salvador. Most illegals here are from Mexico.
