While I can understand the plight that both countries are in, and that the federal government is in a bind as well as the Mexican government. However
the problem is that the USA is not in a position to care for additional number of people, with its over whelming social and economic problems that it
has going on.
Neither the US federal government or the Mexican federal government realizes the danger that these children are in, and while the words are poorly
chosen and the actions are slow, the facts are that most of these children are going to either end up staying in the USA or going to be sent home.
I am for legal immigration, where we open our doors, hearts and arms up to welcome new people in, new ideas and innovations, the contributions of such
cannot and should not be forgotten, but this has been a growing problem that has been building for years. And it gets worse, as I stated, make no
mistake those children are in far greater danger than either side wants to admit to. All it is going to take is another act of terrorism or an
outbreak of some disease in the USA and the general public will be seeing red, even to the point of violence against those that had nothing to with
it, and the federal government is ill prepared for the riots or demands for blood that will happen. Take a good look at 9/11 or even what all is
going on in Ferguson, right now. The fires are burning, and it just takes one more spark and it gets worse.
The problem also being, that it was a dangerous journey through Mexico, and it appears as though the Mexican government did nothing to stem the tide
of such, nor cares to enforce its side of the border. It could have stopped this long ago, but has chosen not to. It is corrupt and fails to be good
neighbors with the USA, while the USA is not so innocent and is equally guilty on that account. Both countries created this mess and ultimately will
either have to agree to stop the flow or it is going to come to a point where someone is going to go down and start shooting or killing those trying
to cross illegally.
The Central American countries need to stop looking to the USA as an ATM machine and handouts, while the USA needs to stop looking south for cheap
labor. The bottom line is that boarder on both sides of the country need to be shut down, halt all immigration till we can figure out a new policy
and ultimately figure out what to do with all of those currently in the USA. We need to shut down the money leaving the country where it does not go
out, of the country back to home countries around the world, and stop allowing for those who have children on US soil, to use such as an excuse to
allow them to stay. Once we have those issues fixed, then open the borders up with the new policies in place and with the new penaltities as well.
But not amnesty at all, none allowed or given.
