No. Because they are not refugees. To think that some of those kids, which are under 10 years old, made a 1000+ mile trek all by themselves without some sort of supervision and therefore are "unattended" is actually an insult to peoples intelligence. They came here with help. Which means they are not and never were unattended. (except maybe for the last 1/4 mile so the perps wouldn't get caught). Send them back.

Nope, I do not welcome illegal aliens, regardless of age. Send them all back across the border and let them do it the legal way.
Would I welcome them? No. They should be sent back.
Would I go out and protest and otherwise make their relocation to my area more difficult? Again, no. At that point it's petty.
Would I vote for people at a later date who made their relocation to my area easier/possible? Probably not. Depending on what other issues were at play. It's a big issue, but it's not a litmus test.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
I'd rather not. At the same time, these kids were basically thrust into this situation by their parents and it's not hard to see why their parents took such extreme measures.
Though all this makes me feel it's time for American foreign policy to pay more mind again to our neighbors than God forsaken places in the Near East.

Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
