In a perfect world we would be able to take in anyone at any time and take care if their needs. In reality, sometimes that isn't possible. Given
that... I think that the children who have been sent here should be taken care of, have their needs met, and returned home. I do not like the whole
illegal immigrant situation, but I also do not think that we can just let the children that are here starve, stay sick, etc. we can see to those
needs. We should see to those needs and again... They should be sent back.
Their need is to stay away from their failed own country!
Send them back and they will have a live a mother doesn't want for her children!
No country in the world could withstand an influx of people from all over the world and see to their every need for years and years without having it
affect everyone in that country. Our system is strained as it stands, what good does it do anyone if it collapses entirely?
First, please check that writing on the SoL.
Second, the USA does still have a far larger budget (even for charity) than most if not all countries south of it combined.
I understand why people want to come here. I do. I don't blame them at all for it. I don't think any adult should ignore the needs of any child
regardless of where they come from. There has to be a middle ground here. It can't be all or nothing for everyone. It is possible to do what we can
and send them home. Those calling for something otherwise where children are concerned may need to find a little empathy as they can not help who sent
them, who brought them here, etc. they don't need to suffer while they are here because of that.
How about a special kind of semi-orphanage? Something governmental to raise those kids, let them be good citizens? No, I am not talking about those
horror-story-alike orphanages from Disney movies or Charles Dickens. Modern times, modern orphanages. That would be a possible way.
There are no millions on the march. There are about 100.000 on their ways. That should be a feasible burden.
I certainly don't want any child to die in any street in any country. But I do feel like they shouldn't be bussing them in when we can't see after
our own. Using "the children" to virtually blackmail folks into letting everyone stay is a sad tactic as well.
It's a problem that needs to be fixed. I don't know how to fix it at this point and those in charge don't seem concerned enough to try
First, and this is of concern to my mother-country as well, there should be far more structured rules about fetching their parents from their
countries. Not every 17 year old is still as depending on it's parents like a 7 year old. There should be differences in the decision which parent is
invited and which not.
Secondly - being a rich nation brings a burden with it. It's kind of "part of the package". Only very small yet rich countries like Suisse,
Luxembourg and such are able to barricade themselves.
