Yes because this never happened before Trump was elected right? Your faux outrage is tiresome. Tell your reps to work and fix immigration.

Children again. If all else fails when you want to illegally enter a country, own a gun, let islam run wild, anything else you want, use children.
As soon as children are thrown into the equation you can literally get away with murder.
That's why terrorist plant bombs on babies, why illegal immigrants stick pregnant women on their boats and generally any law that needs passing just needs to say "innocent children" and the world bends over backwards.
Don't you see that the children are abused by their parents?
They are uprooted dragged through dangerous terrain and when caught, they are the ones suffering. It's the parents fault. I wouldn't even be surprised that a lot brought them along to play the 'children' cart when caught, hoping that our civilised human decency would let them off because of them.
Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. This isn't nice for the kids but it has always been common knowledge that you commit a crime if you enter another country illegally and that jail or deportation is the consequence. The parents KNEW that, yet hoped to trick officials by bringing the ace up their sleeve [children]. Everything these kids go through is their parent's fault. Nobody else.
If you give in to this abuse of minors by their own folk, all you get is more of it, as it will be seen as a key to do whatever they desire.
The only way to help children is to be harsh and stick to the law. Sure a few will suffer but in the long run the word will spread that 'children' aren't the 'get out of jail card' some hoped for. This means parents who love their kids will think twice to subject their offspring to such horrendous consequences and eventually it will stop.
If they don't care, then I think removing the children from such parents is actually a good thing.
The same way with illegals on boats trying to get into Europe. If you keep rescuing them, there will be more, if you stop and lay down the law they will get the point eventually.
Those that fall for these abhorrend tricks of criminals are only helping the situation to get worse.

I understand we can't open the gates blindly, but we can't be isolationists either.
