    Which leads to the inescapable conclusion that some of us aren't. It would explain a lot.

      We need to find solutions that don't make the problems worse. Why are these kids a priority over kids in Africa who are held as slaves? Or kids in Asia forced to work 12 hour days in dangerous conditions?

      Just because someone can break into our country doesn't mean we need to prioritize them over every other potential immigrant elsewhere in the world.

        That about says it all.

      •  Just because there are other potential immigrants (0+ / 0-)

        .. doesn't mean we should do nothing about these kids.

        •  Letting them become citizens here (0+ / 0-)

          simply encourages others to do the same thing. Violate immigration law and force American taxpayers to fund the neverending influx of illegal aliens.

          You may disagree with me, but I'm a Democrat. Who you should be concerned about are the 45% who continually vote for Republicans because of policies like these.
