Suddenly unaccompanied children are pouring across the border from Mexico. They are not all from Mexico but from Honduras and other Central American countries.
Do you believe children are doing this on their own? Can children find their way hundreds of miles North with no help from adults? Where do we start to end the crossings? Can we just turn children back? How old are these children? How can we assure that these children are vaccinated and free of infectious diseases? What is the ethical thing to do with these children?
What about the drug cartels smuggling drugs across the border? Why do we allow them to do this? Why don’t we secure the border? Why not use the military and all their expertise and equipment to keep the cartels and children from pouring into our country?
I know , more questions than answers. I have to wonder if the parents of these children are being responsible sending them out on their own? Could it be that the people in the Central American countries need to have contraception? If they can’t care for the children, maybe they should not have them. So many questions and few if any answers.
Lets talk about it and see if we can brainstorm some ideas for the politicians to use since they do nothing, maybe we can give them a solution to implement.
As always lets be civil because these are important issues.
