Not a single child should ever be separated from their parents at the border. As in divorces the children shouldnít have to pay for the actions of their parents.
The entire family should be sent back - together, and a bill for the cost of doing so should be sent to the Mexican Government. Payment terms? Due upon receipt.
All these people are at the border because the government of Mexico is grossly failing itís people. 100% not our responsibility. Thinking so would be like having a major problem with an immediate family member and then making that issue the responsibility of all your neighbors. No. Fix your own problems and clean up your own back yard. All of the worldís problems should not magically become ours to solve.
For the record, I would most likely be at the border with my family if I were from Mexico - I would try to get here. I get why theyíre trying to get here, thatís a no brainer choice.
That said and for the record, in todayís world, the border should be hermetically sealed and the only immigration occurring should be incredibly controlled.
The fact that it isnít is testament to the incomprehensible incompetance and gross negligence of our political class. They should all be fired immediately and replaced with adults who actually give a crap about this country more than their re-election self interests.
