    Yes, it is.

    I wonder how many of the minors who've appeared here en masse brought identification with them. Does anybody know about this?

    Well that's too bad because someone should have to be held responsible for these children. Hopefully they locate their families in their own countries so they can be sent back. Like you say, we don't have the resources to take in all the world's needy people, and it's time people started to realize that.

    Now wouldn't that be a stupid thing for the parents to do, send ID with them. The children of 6 or 7 years of age should be able to tell authorities who their US relatives are. Whether they will remains to be seen.

    Yet another problem for the agencies that are having to process them. This is just a nightmare.

    Every last one of them will have to have an immigration hearing. They may be looking for the parents, but I haven't heard it if they are. Even if they found them, the US would have no jurisdiction over them.

    Too bad we can't just bring them to the government of their respective countries and let them sort it out.

    Well they are in America now, and they have the right to due process of law. Our domestic courts have no jurisdiction over anyone in another country. The banana republics of the world have become very adept at finding the chink in our constitutional armor.

    We have to start really shoring up our borders to prevent these things from happening to begin with. I have to wonder why a lot of the democrats refuse to acknowledge this problem and, in fact, actually encourage it at times. I have to think it's for votes because there really is no other benefit to illegal immigration to America (even though the smarmy partisans will lie and say that there is).

    Too bad the Feds didn't protect the border the way they do employees of the IRS.
