SAN PEDRO SULA, HondurasOn this citys violent outskirts, where families live in tin-roofed shacks on streets menaced by gangs, the word is out on how best to escape to the U.S.
Bring the children.
The number of Central American families with children arriving at the U.S. border seeking asylum has surged in recent yearsand they keep coming, as more migrant caravans make their way through Mexico.
Having children in tow can be a successful tactic because of American immigration rules. Families from crime-ridden Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are able to gain entry by demonstrating a credible fear of returning home.
Then, as they wait for court hearings on their asylum claims in a process that can take years, most are released into the U.S. because of a 20-day limit on detaining minors; an adult traveling alone could be detained much longer.
Doris Paz, a 29-year-old mother of three, said that is how her sister-in-law reached San Antonio. It is how a neighbor recently crossed into the U.S. with two children. It is why a cousin grabbed her children and joined a caravan of migrants that left Honduras last month. And it is why Ms. Paz joined the same caravan with her 6-year-old son.
They say that bringing your child is your ticket in, said Ms. Paz. After a few days walking with her son under tropical heat, however, she turned around and went home.
In fiscal year 2018, which ran from October 2017 to September 2018, a record of 107,212 immigrants traveling in families were apprehended at the U.S. border with Mexico, compared with 14,855 in fiscal year 2013, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The number of apprehended families hit a new monthly record in October, with officials catching roughly 23,100 immigrants traveling as families.

Send the border crossers back home or to a ANWR for deportation processing. Being kind only generates more. if they have no hope of entering and staying, they will not come.
And then they can really hit the Uncle Sap jackpot by having an anchor baby as soon as they can find some sperm and a “free” welfare hospital.
They can just as easily be made to die as “a family” too.
Well, that may have its surprises.....
Entry requires biometrics of everyone. DNA testing to see if “Mom” and “Dad” are really Mom and Dad.
One slight wrinkle...... Some of the Dads are not the genetic Dads....Ooops.
The person allowing entry should take them home with them and provide for them for one year. Is only fair
I’m not confident that we can win this war.
So far the only “immigrants” I’ve seen at the border are unaccompanied young men. Not a woman or child in sight.
President Trump had two years to do something about this, but the pernicious Republicans blocked him. Now we have to live with it.
Illegal scumbags, come on down! The US Army has a few tactics of its own.
“Doris Paz, a 29-year-old mother of three”
I think we have identified the “real problem!” Most of the women in these countries are simply stupid perambulating vaginas looking to be “penetrated!”
Weren't they doing this all along?
Send them home, as a family.
Send them all home, including the 30 million that are already here.
We can object to people gaming the system without dehumanizing them. Lots of women have given birth to three children. My wife has. That does not make them what you called them.
Lots of women have 3 kids by the age of 29——nothing wrong with that at all.
Did they talk about how many children are being STOLEN, by SOBs, that grab kids off the street, just to get into the US?
I doubt it, because then they would have to say that Trump was right about separating children, from adults, until they are proven to be their REAL parents.
Mexico talks about their missing children periodically, but it seems to be a nothing to see here.......move on along type story in America.
“Entry requires biometrics of everyone. DNA testing to see if Mom and Dad are really Mom and Dad.”
Include pictures of tattoos.
Bush League Republicans and Democrats have been carrying out a bipartisan plan to flood America with fraudulently documented foreigners for 30 years and blocking any attempt by the citizens to stop it.
