    Conservative writer/pundit George Will likes the idea.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    You have more faith than I do. This is simply a political game with children as the pawns. Those pulling the strings don't care one bit about the lives of the children they're using.

    Which I am sure they know the bible a lot better than do you since you took a verse out of context and you are trying to change the goal posts by citing another verse.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Except that is bull**** and you should know it. It took a long time to walk those kids to the US border, cost a lot of money to pay their way here and they passed through several countries that are not embroiled in violence on their way.

    Save the hand wringing guilt, Our government did not cause the conditions in Central America and these are not refugees.

    You seem to have no concept of abject poverty.

    I don't see the logic behind adding additional problems to my home state when the problems here ARE NOT solved. Makes zero sense.
