How do feel about their parents allowing this to happen?

With or without their blessing?

It shows how very desperate their situation is in their countries. We should be compassionate not cruel and inhuman.

I actually want to take in these kids. If adults are sending them alone, or if they have no family, I am good with it. We should be setting up expedited Foster Care programs for these kids. The Hispanic Communities that speak Spanish would be my first choice, but that is not a requirement.

A real problem we have had since the Obama Administration is that about 1/3 of the MS-13 recruits are coming directly from this pool.

Please explain what you mean by this and how you think this is happening. If they are treated well once they get here, how are the susceptible to being "recruited"? Gang life is only attractive to people who have few or no other choices.

Don't think we need to worry too much about the little ones not sporting the distinctive ink.

And of course the girls and the 9 month old baby aren't too much of a worry.

I personally think there are 100 Bajillion children coming to our borders without parents. I think we need to bomb the country of anyone who allows children to try and save themselves. It is only fair. Lets ask Trump.

Well if they did it without their parents blessing, then they did it in defiance of their parents. In that case I have to commend the parents for not caging their children to prevent them from running away. In that case the cure would be worse than the sickness.

You just can't quit lying.

If you were compassionate, America wouldn't have any poor or homeless. So taking them in is not compassionate, it's stupid.

The reason why it's stupid, is because America is umpteen trillion dollars in debt and immigration is a burden and umpteen million Americans can't afford to buy the basics. America can't house South America.
