    Looks like Bush is to blame for the immigration crisis

    Once again, Obama is getting flack for shit that's a direct result of Bush policies.

    The Obama administration doesn't have much leeway in dealing with unaccompanied child migrants. That's because Congress set a particular process here as a way of fighting human trafficking. (These laws reinforced a 1997 government lawsuit settlement that set certain standards for care.)


    Most of this process was codified by Congress under the Homeland Security Act of 2002; Congress added some additional protections under the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, in 2008.

    How much of this can be traced to the war on drugs? By that, I mean, why are the conditions in their home countries so awful?

    If it's the fucking war on drugs, blame Nixon and Reagan and let's just call it. We didn't do the dumb Prohibitition thing this long. Experiment OVER. It was dumb.

    Yes, and the cold war too.

    From a 2004 article:

    He also said Central America's rampant street gangs were "the grandchildren" of Reagan's policies. Many gang members are people who had fled the wars, learned gang culture in Los Angeles or New York, then brought it home, creating the region's most critical security issue.

    Agree. From what I hear on the news, most of these kids families have been hurt, displaced or murdered by the cartels and some have no where else to go.
