Let us forget the "blame" game regarding the overwhelming flood of minor illegal aliens crossing our southern borders. The first question should be "how do we stop it and get control over our border?"
The only logical solution I have heard so long has been presented by Senator Flake, from Arizona. His answer: Ship a couple of planes to each of the major source countries for these minors chock full of those very same kids.
Consider that families have paid many thousands of Dollars to human smugglers and the cartels to send their children to the "land of milk and honey" expected that we will take them in, and they will have a chance for the American success story. I can't blame them. And, truth be told, our current administration has given those parents every reason to think this country will "wink, wink, nod, nod" and allow them to stay.
But...if suddenly those children start showing up back home in planes sent by the United States Government, those parents have just thrown thousands of dollars away...dollars they had to skimp and scratch to get in the first place. They will not throw...perhaps cannot...that kind of money away again without the likelihood of success.
The result would be that within 30 days the flood would start to abate, and within 90 it would virtually come to a halt, and the border would normalize.
That is not to say that there would not continue to be the ongoing drug smuggling and adult crossings, but that would be a matter for another, much longer, discussion.
Two or three plane loads to each country...9 plane loads tops...and this problem starts to go away. Mr. Obama, you can fast track that many kids in two months...get to work. It would help mightily if you were to discipline yourself to stay in the Oval Office and actually work at this...but even if you have to assign it to someone else, get it done. Fix this. You can do it.
