    More. Look at the numbers here. Our foster care system can't keep up with the need in THIS country. Where are we going to get 80,000 families to care for these children?


    (CNN) -- The national controversy over a surge of Central American immigrants illegally crossing the U.S. border established a new battleground this week in a Southern California small town where angry crowds thwarted detained migrants from entering their community.

    The sentiment carried over to a raucous Wednesday night meeting at a Murrieta high school auditorium. Border patrol and immigration officials got an earful.

    "This is an invasion," attendee Heidi Klute said before a full house. "Why isn't the National Guard stopping them from coming in?"
    Authorities estimate 60,000 to 80,000 children without parents will cross the border this year in what the White House has called an "immediate humanitarian crisis."

    Personally, I just don't think it would be that hard to enforce our borders. This problem is kind of like the one in which the semi becomes stuck under a bridge. No one can figure out how to get the truck out from under the bridge until a little boy comes along with a different perspective and says, 'let some air out of the tires.' We have fleets of helicopters. I don't see why they couldn't be used to patrol our borders and just set down in front of someone crossing and hover until they are gone. Yes, it would cost a little, but how much are thousands of diseased children who need caregivers costing us? Trillions.
    It's my understanding that these kids are not swimming the river, but are being brought in in busses, and taken to temporary facilities, where they are then moved to other facilities or processed and sent to relatives till their hearing. Right.

    I could be wrong. Either way, it's a simple matter to put a stop to it. The administration chooses not to do it.

    This situation was planned. Only one group could have done the planning. I just don't know why.

    The US does not have a budget for babysitting. And as our military bases are turned into such facilities, our national security is being weakened.

    That's not the part of this issue that bothers me. They are here and in custody and they are trying to find a place to put them. Heck, I suppose there will be more armed soldiers on those bases than there usually are.

    Why will 60-80,000 children be ALLOWED to cross the border this year, and why have 20,000,000 crossed the border throughout previous administrations??
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Here's a thought. The administration is leasing or attempting to lease facilities all over the US to house these illegals. No area wants them, and the locals are refusing accommodations. Why not lease facilities in El Salvador, Haiti, Dominica, and send these illegals home so they be near their parents?

    Our national security is not being weakened, Jesus, such hyperbole.

    Really, and when our soldiers start getting sick like Border Patrol has. Of course, this weakens national security. Military bases are not babysitting instillations.

    They all have to have an immigration hearing first. The immigration courts are already backlogged. It will take years. In the meantime enough unaccompanied children are coming in to fill up an entire mid sized city. There is no plan B. There isn't even a ****ing plan A.
