U.S. Border Overrun With Central American Children



There is a catastrophe happening on the U.S. / Mexico border right now and no one in Washington appears to have a clue on how to deal with the problem. Children, under the age of 18, by the thousands, are crossing the border and neither the U.S. government or the states involved have the resources to handle that many children coming to the United States who are unaccompanied by a parent or guardian. According to news reports, most of these children are making their way to the United States from Guatemala and other poor Central American countries. Many of the children who have been picked up by U.S. Border Patrol Agents claim they were told in their home country that amnesty would be granted to them, if they made it to the United States. In typical Washington fashion, Republicans are blaming President Obama for this problem – while Democrats are blaming conservative GOP lawmakers for not passing immigration reform. I've said it before and I will say it again, if the rule of law in the United States is not returned soon, this latest issue of young children crossing the U.S. border alone - will be the least of our problems.
