    Apparently, these invaders are so persecuted, they managed to scrape up enough money to travel all the way to the border, healthy as can be. Certainly appears they escaped by the hair of their teeth.

    This invasion should send chills down the spine of every citizen in this country.

    Of course it should be investigated, even though it will be costly as hell for the taxpayers. Then, their parents should be tracked down and charged for, at the very least, abandonment, and all should be deported back to their home countries. If they want to enter this country, do it the legal way.

    While I believe for a lot of reasons that the USA should exercise strict control over all of its borders what sends chills down my spine is the xenophobic attitude of some people on the far right in the USA

    I'm not going to name any names, but I will say that some of those people cross over the line into racism and bigotry.

    I would suggest there is nothing racist or bigoted about wanting to repel the invasion of failures from failed countries. Color, or any other factor people want to invent, has nothing to do with it.

    This is an invasion encouraged by a particular Political Party. It's chilling, and orchestrated. The possible reason for this attack on the sovereignty of this Nation should alarm every citizen of the US.

    There are a LOT of reasons why illegal immigration should be rejected on no uncertain terms.

    What alarms me is people who are full of racial hatred and bigotry.

    Fortunately they are a minority of the population and will never control the USA.

    What bigotry? Are you insinuating that people who are against illegal immigration feel that way because they are bigots?

    I'm not insinuating anything, I'm flat out saying that a small minority of the people who are opposed to various types of immigration are racists and bigots.

    Let the chips fall where they may, I don't bite my tongue.

    If what I say upsets someone, maybe they have a problem.

    Then you are wrong. There are certainly MANY valid reasons to oppose illegal immigration. Health issues and monetary issues being just a couple. The very idea that people who oppose it are bigots is actually quite ignorant IMO.

    That's your opinion, which you are entitled to and I will ignore.

    It's a sad fact that the USA still has a few racists and bigots.

    Some of them post comments all over the internet, including on this forum.
