More than 60,000 unaccompanied children have crossed the Texas border in the past 9 months. This is very hard to believe......the Unaccompanied part!
What is difficult for me to understand, is how these children are making their way up through Mexico on this 1500 mile trip.....alone!
What is being reported is that it has become a "Flee or die" choice for families. Drug-fueled corruption and heavily armed gangs is what stands behind the fleeing of these children from Honduras.
My heart is heavy for children involved in these horrible ways of living. The question is: What are we to do?
What does it bring to our Country, aside from 60,000 or more homeless children? Disease is a threat from immigrant children who have not had the vaccines that children here in America have had.
There is and will continue to be an enormous cost of housing these children. This adds an additional burden to an already financially burdened Country. Where will the money come from to take care of these kids? Will the already -heavily taxed- tax payers be responsible for supplying the funds to meet the needs?
I just don't know!
I have a very good friend who works with the border patrol and I know just how honest of a person he truly is......I know that there are MANY problems just in dealing with drug traffickers. These are dangerous people that are feeding the young kids of America......all kinds of dangerous drugs.
Illegal aliens are a huge problem and now, the border patrol has an even bigger issue in having to deal with a lot of innocent children......
Many people are out protesting..... Some want to send these children back.....some want us to do the humanitarian thing and help these people.
We have thousands and thousands of children in our Country that need help. I'm talking about children that are hungry! Believe it or not....the only meal that some kids get each day, is the lunch that they are fed at school.
What are we to do as a Country? If you don't mind sharing, I would love to know how you feel about this issue that we have going on......here in United States!!
Blessings to all...
