Amazing how much you want Jesus ruling other's lives up to the point people actually need help from his followers.

It's difficult for me to deliberate my position on this subject. As I hope it is the same for others. I do believe and support legal immigration. I do not believe America is equipped to handle the growing volume of this crisis. Nor do I believe we should have to. My position is to reform the countries they are coming from. However, that may be achieved?
But as far as the kids are concerned? This should be a no brainer on several fronts. These children are, have and will be USED! Used by political pundits on both sides of the isles. As well as the coyotes on the SA side. All these people should be condemned and forced from the power positions they hold. There should be no free passes for those who orchestrated this crisis.
But as far as these kids go.....? Look at your kids or look in the mirror. And realize that you won a birth lottery. It could've been you swimming in the rio or riding the death train. Or your kids. I don't want to deal with this burden anymore than the rest of you. But, they're here. And that is the reality. And even harsher reality, is that I don't want to sink to the same shameful levels, as the coyotes or pols who thrusted this situation on us.
The truth is, that many churches and charity groups in Texas have adopted this philosophy already. Unfortunately, the volume of this crisis has already bled most of them dry. So I do agree with the Ninja. Christians all across America do need to do what they KNOW is right. Help these children while they are here. Take your anger and frustrations out to the sources that deserve it. But not on these people or their kids. cause I promise you, that they ( excluding those who enter with criminal intent ) are only doing what you would do if in the same situation.
I have little faith that our pols will come up with real-world solutions to deal with this crisis. And I do not know what that leaves us. But I know these are people just like you and me. And if we treat them like vermin. We will become the vermin ourselves.
