They are in custody, so you don't even have to find them. Why is this so hard??? Why do we have to take care of them just because Obama misled them into coming here (or did he?). Send them back and clear up any confusion. The kids will stop coming, problem solved. There is no need for $3 billion to be spent on this, you can deport all of them on a first class plane for $8 Million.
Agreed, but Obama has known about this problem for months. If he didn't, then he didn't want to know about it. We do have numerous sources of information south of the border and they were aware of the growing surge of kids. The fact is Obama didn't want to do anything about this, till the news couldn't be covered up any longer. When the head of the Border Patrol Union finally spoke up and denounced what Obama was doing, he finally had to acknowledge the problem. He could have asked Congress for the money months ago, but didn't get off that lazy, incompetent behind of his. He was too busy raising money for the Democrats and campaigning to do the job of being President. Of course, he has always been that way. He likes being President but he doesn't like doing the work of being President. All you have to do is look at his whole political career, it has been like that. He has bee present but not there.
Congress shouldn't give Obama a penny. without out specific guidelines on how it should be spent. Give him NO wiggle room to move the money around, or he will steal it for his party, like he has done with billions of taxpayer dollars, going to Democrat special interest groups and to bail out big Democrat donors. The main thing is that Congress should DEMAND that the border be secured, before there is any discussion of immigration reform, and no money, except money to physically secure the border. Once it is secured, from the illegals, terrorists and Drug Runners, and the current crop of illegals in the US accounted for and brought up for their deportation hearings, and deported, only then should there be any discussions on immigration reform. I am in favor of a quicker pathway for citizenship for LEGAL immigration. but only legal immigration. If they want to legalize some of the criminal aliens from south of the border, they should count against any new legal quotes for the South of the border immigrant want to be.
why do you think they will not be "deported" ?
One thing I wonder about when folks say just send them back is...what is meant exactly...put them on a plane and let them hitchhike home from an airport in their country...is that the proposal ? If you kid ended up in central america...would that be your advice to the authorities.
I think it should a bit better than that.....and it might take a wee bit of time to come up with a better plan than "deport them"
"If you kid ended up in central america...would that be your advice to the authorities."
Most of these parents sent their own kids and entrusted them with coyotes, I'm not sure it gets much deeper than drop them off at the airport. Maybe they can issue a nationwide alert that Jose Gonzalez is ready for pickup at Gate 9 or maybe its as simple as calling a phone number. Maybe national authorities will help locate their parents, I mean these kids probably know their address right? Maybe we can parachute them out of a plane. .. So many good ideas.
Gov't are responsible for their citizens. These kids are citizens of other countries. Send them back to their own gov't to take care of them. My stand is load up and send home immediately any illegal that is not working. Dependents of working illegals get to stay with their supporter. A later determination to be made for the worker
In Obama's word: Period.
As a democrat I do not now and never adhered to most of the idiotic democrat liberal philosophy .... Their extreme is pure socialist/communist.
For your info, there were only 48 Democratic Senators at that time. There must have been a number of Republicans that voted for the bill that passed. It certainly wasn't veto proof and Bush signed it which made it a law of the land. Actually there were more Republican Senators than Democrat Senators in 2008. Look it up.
These kids aren't streaming over because of some obscure law from 2008. Its Obama's "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals", his executive order allows kids to stay here and gives them work visas.
