I read about this too. I agree we need to do the right thing by those people until such time we get the border under control.
The amount of folks coming across is staggering. How do you handle 70,000 a month? Over 2,000 a day.
What that "right thing" is will be debated but I would venture to say food, shelter, maybe immediate medical care? Yes, they are coming here illegally. They are breaking the law. But having little kids die out in the desert ain't right either. I am not sure what a perfect solution would look like until there are better controls.

Until then, just raise taxes on sanctuary cities/states to cover for it.
They're always bragging about how rich they are and how we need to tax the rich, so this seems like a pretty solid proposal.
Helping them once they are here is just treating the symptom and ignoring the disease.
