If you want to focus on the second paragraph that's fine. In the first paragraph you can assume that in so many other words pointing out the problems here in the US people. While that Illegal is working there is an american on disability sitting on there rump doing nothing. Or it's a job a US citizen hasn't gotten desperate enough to do.
Point here is they figure you had your chance you didn't succeed now this other guy here he'll work his butt off! Work 16 hr shifts sometimes a 24.
Children from the northern tier of Central America and from Mexico are flooding into the United States _ 47,017 from Oct. 1 to May 31, the Department of Homeland Security says _ cramming Border Patrol stations and forcing U.S. officials to set up temporary facilities for the children at military bases in Texas, Oklahoma and California.
“Violence in Central America is pushing these kids out,” said Wendy Young, executive director of Kids in Need of Defense, a Washington-based group that provides pro bono lawyers for minors facing immigration hearings.
“This is more refugee-like than immigration,” she said. “Even if kids are reunifying with family members (in the United States), that’s what refugees do, too.”
Young said the average age of unaccompanied children apprehended by border agents has dropped. “There are a lot more kids under age 12, and the percentage of girls has risen from 25 percent to 40 percent,” she said.
