But I would ask whether any of them are entitled to due process of law. Do they deserve a hearing?

Your compassion is duly noted. But I would ask whether any of them are entitled to due process of law. Do they deserve a hearing?
Some laws give the due process.
But one law says Mexicans children can be instantly deported at the border while children from some other countries can't.
Mostly because of Human Trafficking.....
William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008
Obama Lies About the Number of Illegal Aliens Entering the US
The reason they do that is so they can elicit sympathy from the American people while hiding behind the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008. That too is a lie. The WWTVPR protects victims of human trafficking. These kids are entering the US voluntarily and therefore are not subject to that law. Which means there is nothing stopping the government from stopping them entering the country or sending the ones back who make it into the country.
The number of unaccompanied kids entering the US doubled since 2013 to 57,525. Meanwhile the number of family units entering the country has increased five fold to 55,420. And remember, these numbers are like an iceberg, the majority of which cannot be seen. The Obama administration has also given preference to relatives of illegal aliens already in the country. That means one accompanied illegal alien could lead to their parents and siblings getting green cards and entry into this country.
Notice another deception going on. The governors of Connecticut, California, Massachusetts, Maryland and Connecticut, who are pushing for these illegal aliens from being deported, yet no states are resisting accepting these illegals more than those four states. And notice the majority of these illegals are being sent to red states, where they can have a big impact on future elections. And lastly, has anyone noticed that you don’t hear of large numbers of illegals being dumped in Louisiana, North Carolina or Arkansas? States where democratic senators are in danger of losing their seats.
And the White House knows just how unpopular Obama’s immigration policies are, which explains why they are doing their best to hide the numbers and the locations where they are dumping the illegals. All across the country, people are rising up to protest the influx of the illegals. The administration knows that barring open rebellion, their deceptive acts will stand.
And who suffers the most? Blacks will. The unemployment rate for young blacks 18-25 hovers around thirty five percent now. Imagine what will happen as they are forced to compete with millions of illegal aliens. The liberals don’t really care because they feel like they have them trapped on the plantation with nowhere to go. And soon, too. Most of the unaccompanied illegal aliens are 15 through 17.
The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats’ border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation.
Democrats don’t think people will catch up to this at some point? The PR game that carried Obama – health care lies and all – to the White House is showing significant signs of incompetent wear and tear lately…
Democrats Keep Insisting the Border is Secure

]Dear xuenchen, If I may, I would like to ask you what the appropriate response of our government should be to this dilemma. Should each and every immigrant/refugee that shows up at the border be instantly returned, without even getting off the bus? This raises the question of legal due process. Is not every prospective immigrant/refugee entitled to a hearing by a Judge? Do you possibly agree that any of these people are worthy of consideration for refugee status?

The Most Transparent Administration In History lying???
To perhaps invoke The Cloward-Piven Strategy?
Say it ain't so!
They have privacy rights that this WH were going to honor no matter what. So, no, States can't ask for that information because it will violate the rights of the illegals...
Illegals have more rights....that we legals do, it appears.
I would ask you, what might be the fate of these immigrants/refugees that are returned to Central America, those children who are terrorized by gangs and cartels? Perhaps you feel that it is just a scam. Just how sure are you?

"Refugee.. a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster. No one forced you to come 1500 miles across 2 or 3 countries to do so, they are illegal.
For all of those that want hearings to acquire refugee status, pony up the money for the courts and judges to do so. Anymore its 1/2 a day wasted on a traffic ticket, how long will refugee hearings take for 60,000 people once court appointed lawyers are involved?
Due process used to be something only accorded to American citizens but the current POTUS feels killing Americans with a drone strike negates that idea. But typically only American citizens are accorded due process. So it would be selective at best."
First of all, all refugees fall into the category of illegal. And US jurisprudence demands the observation of due process. That is the essence of USA exceptionalism. Each and every immigrant/refugee is entitled to due process of U.S. law. Since the Obama administration has already sent a planeload of refugees back to Honduras, perhaps you feel that he is not moving quickly enough. My question to you is, what is the meaning of due process?
