Now that Democrats have stopped calling the untenable situation at America’s southern border a “manufactured crisis” and recognized it as a “humanitarian crisis,” perhaps a bipartisan solution can be found to at least one aspect of the problem: the continuing flow of unaccompanied children across the border.
But we shouldn’t hold our breath. The left — activists, the media and Dem politicians — are more interested in badgering the Trump administration than solving the crisis…
Are we really going to set tens of thousands of children free on to America’s streets and hope for the best? Are we going to hand them to a distant relative, if they are lucky enough to even have one, and not worry about the consequences? Would we do that to American children?
There isn’t a good solution, and the continual ratcheting up of the rhetoric by the left only ends up actively harming these kids. Democrats are telegraphing the message that as soon as they win the White House, people who cross the border illegally can stay.
