Hondurass first lady will travel to the United States to find and return the countrys unaccompanied minors who have recently flooded across the border, the presidents office said Wednesday.
In an effort to track down 13,000 Honduran children who made their way to the U.S. through Mexico, President Juan Orlando Hernández has created a commission that includes transportation, migration and foreign affairs authorities. But immigration lawyers say Honduran officials will face several legal challenges before they can repatriate the children.
A surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America has overwhelmed U.S. authorities in recent months. Between October 2013 and May of this year, nearly 50,000 children under 18 traveling without a parent or guardian were apprehended, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection....

I’ll believe it when I see it.
That should be pretty easy. Her government and Mexico’s government likely brought them to the border.
I like that some South American country and leader is stepping up. It is a disgrace to all nations that they are so bad that children are willing to flee from them without any adult support.
Mexico is a crap pile. They are the worst. I don’t blame the kids for wanting to flee. I just wish Mexican’s didn’t want to then turn us into Mexico. How is that a good thing for them?
Obama made his point. Approve amnesty or I will invite every person from Mexico to Argentina here, shelter them, feed them and house them on your tax dollar.
And there isn’t a damn thing you can do to stop me.
I wouldn’t be suprised if we aren’t paying those countries to take back their kids.
My X couldn’t even make it outside to mow the lawn and he was an adult (sort of)
Amazing how toddlers and infants made it all the way to the US of A.
Let her borrow Air Force One to fly them back.
While she is at it she should file human rights violations against Mexico for its lack of effort in curbing slavery and human rights trafficking.
Why is Mexico always given a free pass? We have every right to invade them and kill every last cartel member. How are the cartels any different than the Taliban? Just as violent, just as wretched, just as extreme, and they reap terror everywhere they go. Their goal is political control and they are absolutely a terror group. Mexico is guilty of harboring them and their Gov is guilty of supporting them. We can invade other nations, launch drone strikes and assassination missions in Pakistan and Afghanistan but Mexico gets a free pass because why exactly? Cheap labor?
Sounds like someone is going to need a bigger plane.
How is that a good thing for them?”
Go way for the elite to get rid of the riff raff.
Our country is probably providing food and shelter. Heck, we're probably recruiting the kids and paying them.
As long as the Honduran government is paying for it I’m fine with this. Send her up here, round them up, send them back, and bill the Hondurans for the costs we incurred. Deduct it from the “aid” we send them if necessary.
Talk is cheap
If she does so, that is an honorable and compassionate thing to do and we should publicly commend and thank her.
That would be damned decent... and follow it up by going after the jackals that “escorted” them.
We are. With the just announced $240 plus million in additional aid to several central American countries to ameliorate conditions that lead to the migrations. It is a charade. We are spending even more of our borrowed dollars and I bet we will keep the "kids." (Many of these kids look like young gang members, some with mustaches.) Obama has thrown the border wide, invited in a human wave of invaders and found a way to throw even more money away at the same time.
She will have to charter the entire fleet of 1,000 foot long cruise ships to transport them all back home.
“But immigration lawyers say Honduran officials will face several legal challenges before they ...”
Notice how sleaze attorneys and govt in this country will do whatever they can to STOP them from returning to Honduras.
Isn’t that sweet of her???
Now is that just the unaccompanied urchins that she will be taking back or is she going to take back the whole trainload of border jumpers???
She or us? You think Honduras will be paying for this?
Then watch for the Obama Regime to overthrow her government as retribution.
