    At this point if some type of immigration reform is not done I don't think it ever will miss silly that whether it's Democrats or republican this problem continues to persist and get worse and it's it's time for this thing to stop US presidents need to stop acting as if just because they are not Americans that we can ignore this problem or if we or if the media doesn't cover it at this problem doesn't exist these children need to be protected they need help we need to put we need to help these countries so that they don't import these individuals we need to make sure that we need to we need to have it where drugs are legal set they don't that these countries whose criminal organizations benefit from the sales of drugs don't have that that Avenue that Revenue source from America

    I am concerned about the conditions that force kids to leave their own country. However, I am not concerned about the number that come. We should be able to handle hem appropriately.

    The Biden administration is sending families with children back across the border into Mexico. He is doing the very thing he criticized Trump for the only difference is that under Biden there is no policy in place to seek asylum after they are sent back. How is that for humane? Biden and his administration are building the wall. Is that racist when Biden does it?

    I am even more concerned about the trauma these journeys are causing for the children, especially young children. If it is the policy of the US to allow unaccompanied minors entrance, a position I whole heartedly support, then send military transports down to pick up these children and safety bring them back to the states in an organized fashion that does not cause a bottle neck at our southern border. I am also opposed to the inequitable funding being spent per day on children being housed at the border as opposed to those living in foster care or a kinship care arrangement with seniors on a fixed income. How is it equitable to pay a facility hundreds of dollars a day for care and then turn around and offer 1/2 the daily amount to foster parents for the entire month (note: in kinship care arrangements that $$ is often nothing). Yes, we need to take care of the kids coming from these other countries. But many seniors are on a fixed income and they deserve to have similar assistance funds available to them. Numbers and data: According to the most recent federal data, there are currently more than 400,000 children in foster care in the United States. They range in age from infants to 21 years old (in some states). The average age of a child in foster care is more than 8 years old, and there are slightly more boys than girls. https://www.adoptuskids.org/meet-the-children/children-in-foster-care/about-the-children TUESDAY, Aug. 4, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Nearly 3 million children in the United States are being raised by grandparents, and life has placed these kids on a rocky road toward adulthood, a new study reports. https://www.usnews.com/news/health-news/articles/2020-08-04/us-grandparents-are-raising-millions-of-kids-and-its-tough Foster Care Payment https://wehavekids.com/adoption-fostering/What-does-being-a-foster-parent-really-pay Kinship care explained: https://theconversation.com/special-guardianship-helps-thousands-of-children-to-leave-care-it-needs-more-support-156921

    This crisis is unconscionable. Turn these minors over to mexican authorities to deal with. I know the democrats see them as future voters but illegal is illegal, I don't care what age they are.

    Action must be taken to disuade more border crossing. Incentives must be removed and it made clear the dangerous journey is not worth it because there is no reward waiting

    The situation with illegal minors / children and adults being allowed by Mexico and the United States to cross the border is disgusting. Our government needs to tighten the border and make it clear to Mexico that illegal immigrants caught will be returned to their country even if they are not citizens / residents of Mexico. We support government and social services that fight sex and people trafficking, homelessness, children services, etc. for those already in the USA - and all are already stretched beyond their limits. Now, those in National power want to add to this load - which will make it worse for current citizens who are in need of help. Stop it - remember who is paying for all of this - and make it known that the USA is not accepting those who come in illegally!

    Bring back the wall even if it is just fencing. Add armed military all the way down the whole border with no trespassing signs. Do you think North Koreans are able to enter South Korea without going through the proper entrances or vice versa? I am sorry about the horrible conditions in South American, Central America, Mexico, Africa, the Middle East, or anywhere else but the conditions were the same before you had children. If you can't take care of them stop having them. In our own country, we have enough women and child abuse that is out of control. We still keep having babies, too. It is a non-partisan problem stop making everything the fault of Democrats or Republicans WE ARE ALL AMERICANS. Stop the labeling of people, it is causing social unrest in all areas.

    It looks like the Democratic (Marxist) Party is importing children to build an army for a civil war in 20 years. You heard it here first

    Read this morning that the Harris - Biden administration may start rebuilding the wall. Will it still be racist when they do it?

    I’m concerned for their well being. What kind of things are going on in these countries where a parent would feel the need to send an unaccompanied minor (their children) into a foreign country? They are desperate human beings living in a country that we helped destabilize. We absolutely do have an obligation to help these people. You know their is plenty in this country to help these kids and their families get on their feet, but the few who control 80% of the resources on this planet are stingy money grabbing, selfish human beings. We need to stop with the fear of scarcity and stop blaming the poor and underprivileged for our woes. Place blame where it should go to the people like Jeff Bezos.

    I am very concerned for the welfare of these children and as we need to spend funds to humanely care for them. I also feel the governments from where they come from should assist in the payment of the expense. I feel it should also be required for those involved to be prosecuted for child endangerment. Those who drop children over the wall need to be punished. It also shows the money spent on the wall may have been used for better purposes.
