    we didn't do anything except for laxing our immigration laws to the point that they think they can come here and not be deported.

    Perhaps you should actually read the article Montecresto posted before you make claims like that. You might actually learn something.

    Fill us in.
    For one thing the language of the countries. They need to remain where their native language is spoken. That in and of itself makes the South American countries a better place to send those people. Why don't you volunteer to take them in your European country of retreat? eh?
    Liberalismódividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    the huffpo? nothing more than a liberal rag right up there with the daily kos as far as reliability goes.

    i know plenty the US has done nothing to incurr these people to cross the border except to not enforce our immigration laws.
    in fact this administration has given them more reason to cross with the president saying he won't deport any minor brought here against their will.

    those are facts.

    What in the article is false? Please be specific. You are committing the genetic fallacy.

    International laws dictate how refugees must be treated.

    Are you suggesting that the USA ignore those laws?

    Fill us in.
    Why don't you share those laws with us? Fill us in.

    The 57,000 children from Central America who have streamed across the U.S.-Mexico border this year were driven in large part by the United States itself. While Democrats and Republicans have been pointing fingers at each other, in reality the current wave of migration from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras has its roots in six decades of U.S. policies carried out by members of both parties.

    Since the 1950s, the U.S. has sown violence and instability in Central America. Decades of Cold War gamesmanship, together with the relentless global war on drugs, have left a legacy of chaos and brutality in these countries. In many parts of the region, civil society has given way to lawlessness. It's these conditions the children are escaping.

    Here's How The U.S. Sparked A Refugee Crisis On The Border, In 8 Simple Steps
    I bet if you asked every last one of those people that crossed the border about this, not one would know what you are talking about.

    Actually, if you had opened the link you'd have seen that its not a Huffpo article, they just picked it up, you also would have seen that its not a partisan piece, its criticle of both democratic and republican administrations thru the years.
