This is completely and utterly ridiculous. Children at 5 years cannot represent themselves alone and court, I know I sure as hell can't.

Huff Poo


Many of the migrant children who remain separated from their parents will have to appear in immigration courts alone and are at greater risk of deportation, legal experts told HuffPost.

“In some cases, children as young as 5 will be in front of an immigration judge, expected to explain why they should not be deported and manage the legal process that is required to prove that,” said Kate Lincoln-Goldfinch, an immigration lawyer who has been interviewing migrant women


First off, many of these children are unaccompanied minors.

STOP SENDING YOUR KIDS HERE FOR US TO RAISE THEM FOR YOU!!!!!!

It's not our duty as US citizens to raise your kids because you irresponsibly had children.



Last year, only 33 percent of unaccompanied minor children ― the category that these separated kids fall under ― had lawyers to help them through the process, according to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. Since migrants are not entitled to public defenders at their hearings, they rely on limited pro bono legal services.


Secondly, this system needs to change and our immigration system needs a total overhaul. The Democrat's and Republican's need to be kicked out on their ass.

This is why we need strong borders with enforced laws and strict control over immigration.

Why would they be in court in the first place?
They are not citizens.
They have no identification.
They are here without permission.

Good god just fix the fricken system at the border

If Mexico can't take care of them, too bad, America don't care! We need to fortify our borders against toddlers and kindergarteners! Build that wall, and bill Mexico!

I can just picture an evil white Republican Male judge grilling a sweet little Mexican girl about her immigration.

"Why did you come here? Where are the drugs? Are you MS13!!!!!! Answer me damnit!!!!!!"

"Cookie"

"Send her to the gas chamber!!!!!!"

I agree. This is because of a broken system and weak border policy

hate to break it to you but it's not our job as US citizen's to raise the poor kids of the rest of the world

if they can't afford children don't have them not our problem

I doubt anyone is actually putting a 5 year old in front of a judge and expecting them to answer any of these questions. There may be a hearing for anyone unaccompanied, as a formality, with console, in order to move the process along to either place them with extended family or move them to some other sort of care facility.

Sadly, there are far to many people that want to believe we trot them out in a orange jumpsuit and expect them to defend their actions...or die.

The "news" orgs certainly aren't helping to prevent stupid people from painting such foolish mental images(painted in crayon, no doubt).

Actually, it kinda is, through our refugee and asylum treaties and agreements, that have been incorporated into US law.

No Worries, Jeff Sessions will use ICE to "abort" them at the border.

My tax dollars are a green as yours. I don't want my tax dollars to go to dropping bombs on innocent civilians.

This has nothing to do with our immigration system. These people, including the kids, are not using our immigration system. They are attempting to bypass it.

The facts are in. US law allows for asylum and refugee victims to seek sanctuary within its borders.
