Under current law, unaccompanied minors from Central America are automatically referred to the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services, which works to place them with family members already residing in the United States while they await a court date. Unaccompanied minors from Mexico, however, are treated differently, and can be screened for immediate return to their home country by U.S. Border Patrol if they do not present human trafficking or refugee concerns. There isnt really a policy rationale for treating them differently,a second White House official said Tuesday, arguing that the current system is allowing too many children to stay in the U.S. for extended periods of time. The number of kids removed is not large enough. That is why we are seeking to make this process more efficient.
The White House request for $3.7 billion in emergency funding for 2014 is also significantly higher than the more than $2 billion estimates senior Administration officials offered reporters last week. It includes $1.6 billion for enhanced deterrence and enforcement on the border, $1.8 billion for Health and Human Service programs for the youth, and $300 million for international programs to aid Central America.

Obama is and was always blind about everything. He is just one evil person.
BS, the only question is how it hurts Republicans and benefits Democrats. Everything is political.
Obama invented Unaccompanied Immigrant Minors
If we detained the kids with the parents, the same people would complain about that. Their outrage is completely manufactured and phony. They’re outraged because someone told them to be.
Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters. They should stop pretending to care. It’s offensive.
I think the argument is not about unaccompanied minors, but minors who come in accompanied by their parents and then separated.
