And most know it started when we stopped enforcing immigration laws once across.
My concern is public opinion wants kids to automatically be put with people that claim to have the child’s best interest at heart. A lot of children have been found dead after the border on ranches, only to find out they’d abducted the child to use as an insurance policy to get across if they get caught. A lot of children are sold once across the border as a sex slave even by parents.
So you can’t automatically trust someone that’s got a child with them claiming to be their parent is being honest, nor that parents always have the child’s best interest at heart. In fact, when adults are putting kids at substantial risk for injury or death the presumption is that they don’t have the child’s best interest in mind and for good reason. Do you want that to be changed?
The more lax immigration laws once across and paying amounts to sponsor kids illegally across correlated to more cases of issues at the border of illegal crossings.
Hillary Clinton suggested in an interview during her campaign the only way to manage it was to deport even children, that you have to take the incentive away once they have crossed illegally.
What are your thoughts to a solution to this problem?
