The United States must respect the universal rights of the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors illegally entering the country, according to the Salvadoran ambassador to the United States.
We understand the concern of the U.S. government about the issue of immigration. We are aware that the phenomenon is not a stranger to electoral considerations; however, we must not ignore the fact that children detained at the border have universal rights that should be given priority over the interests of an expedient solution, Rubén Zamora, the ambassador of El Salvador to the United States, wrote in a Miami Herald op-ed Thursday.
Children are entitled to receive special protection from our consulates, where we contact their family members, collaborate on reunification either in the United States and El Salvador and avoid re-victimization, he continued.
Vice President Joe Biden is meeting with Central American leaders Friday in Guatemala City, Guatemala, including the president of El Salvador, Sánchez Cerén, to discuss the ongoing crisis on the border. Many of the unaccompanied minors and family units are from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
While the Obama administration has said they believe that much of the movement northward is due to poverty and violence in migrants Central American home countries, Republicans argue that it has been the Obama administrations failure to enforce immigration law and rumors about policies like Obamas Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that has served as an enticement.
Zamora explained El Salvador believes the main driver is family reunification in addition to criminal activity and lack of economic opportunities in parts of Central America....

Respect a MOAB, douche.
As long as the re-unification is in El Salvador, it sounds like a plan.
I suppose we’ll be subjected to another sermon in church on Sunday about how Jesus, Mary, and Joseph were immigrants when they were fleeing Herod’s soldiers...
Then they should be delivered to the consulate, where they can receive the protections they're entitled to. Get them off of US soil.
Well at that time Rome owned it all, so the comparison isn’t really there. This was all for the sake of a Roman census.
This is Liberation Theology 101, and it’s mission creeping over the border, into the churches, all it’s tenets pushed by Adelson, Rupert Murdoch, and the Establishment.
They have the right to go home!
This ambassador should have stay in his house or office before taking them back top his lousy country.
Except what kind of liberation is there in THIS theology? I see kids being pressed into the role of pawns.
the ambassador of El Salvador to the United States know this is a cash cow for El Salvador
Respect sovereignty of a Nation and her borders. Otherwise, Mr. Ambassador, your existance as an ambassador is null and void, making your opinion moot and worth less than your dogs latest pile.
You know what I’d like to see?
UN Troops here in the US to oversee and ensure these tens of thousands of children are treated humanely and fairly.
Obama and his regime created this crisis. They own the freaking thing. And they deserve the fallout from it.
And when Obama places these children in hundreds of Obama Internment Kamps; then the eyes of the whole world will be watching. And blaming him as these children suffer and die.
That’s because “Liberation Theology” is actually “Theology In Name Only” - LINO.
I agree with the ambassador. Reunify the children with their families, then kick all of their asses back home.
These latin american countries ought to be embarrassed their citizens are living illegally in another country. Guess they have no national pride.
This is Liberation Theology 101, and it’s mission creeping over the border, into the churches, all it’s tenets pushed by Adelson, Rupert Murdoch, and the Establishment. More of this will be coming out of the Catholic Church, from the same circle of noisy priests, but not just the Catholic Church.
