The young migrants and asylum seekers swim across the Rio Grande and clamber into the dense brush of Texas. Many are teens who left Central America on their own; others were sent along by parents from refugee camps in Mexico. They are as young as 10.

Under U.S. law they would normally be allowed to live with relatives while their cases wind through immigration courts. Instead the Trump administration is quickly expelling them under an emergency declaration citing the coronavirus pandemic, with 600 minors expelled in April alone.

The expulsions are the latest administration measure aimed at preventing the entry of migrant children, following other programs such as the since-rescinded “zero tolerance” policy that resulted in thousands of family separations.

Border agencies say they have to restrict asylum claims and border crossings during the pandemic to prevent the virus’ spread. Migrants’ advocates call that a pretext to dispense with federal protections for children. …

If these children can find their way to the US by themselves, they are clever enough to find their way back home by themselves.

BTW, won't these children be afraid to live in a country they have never been to before, that speaks a language they are unfamiliar with? (this is always an excuse as to why the dreamers can't be shipped back to thier homes).

One would think, the word would start drifting back, that “Uncle Sugar” is listening to no more sob stories about how bad things are in these migrants’ home towns.

Things are infinitely worse here in the Land of Milk and Honey. You get locked up in your own home, no social contact, no reliable means of securing food or medical attention, and for sure, no sympathy from any neighbors.

The “command-and-control” economy did not come in on little cat feet in the fog and darkness of night. It came in at full-on stampede like a thundering herd of buffalo.

Trump needs to kick all the H1B, H4EAD, L1 and OPT trash out of the country’s s well. These groups absolutely devastated the American middle class. But instead, he made deals with Indian PM Modi. American workers get to take it up the pooper now.
