    this law, children are given special status and must be allowed representation and an official hearing on their status, as well as properly housed by the Department of Health and Human Services, not the Border Patrol in warehouses.

    It is Barack Obama himself who is advocating for curtailing the current law's provisions for these full hearings and simply throwing the children right back.

    So, let's go with your thought, which is actually the exact same thing that I am advocating: These children need proper treatment and their full human rights preserved according to current law.

    It is Barack Obama who doesn't want to follow the law, a law which George W. Bush signed in 2008.  Obama has experienced moral failure here. He is not only violating current law, he is advocating for taking away the legal rights of children.
