Who is going to take care of these children? There are gangs here too; why doesn't the President of Guatemala and Honduras do something about the gangs in their countries? How do you know there are not gang members among this group? I think they should all be sent back.
They could have moved to Costa Rica, or Panama. I'm a humanitarian, but I do not think it makes sense for the US government to just allow all of these people to stay just because they just showed up. We have boats of Haitians arriving here in Florida everyday and they are intercepted and sent back. Once the word spreads that if loads of people can just show up here; it will never end. There are immigration processes that should be adhered to.
an interesting interlude of sanity....

Amazon seeks US permission for drone tests

A handout photo released by Amazon on December 1, 2013 shows a flying "octocopter" mini-drone that would be used to fly small packages to consumers
Online giant Amazon has sought permission for drone test flights in the United States, saying it is moving forward on plans for deliveries using the unmanned aircraft.
In a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration made public this week, Amazon said that because of restrictions on drones in US airspace, it has been conducting test flights indoors and in other countries.
"Of course, Amazon would prefer to keep the focus, jobs, and investment of this important research and development initiative in the United States by conducting private research and development operations outdoors near Seattle," the letter said.
Amazon said an exemption to FAA rules would be "in the public interest" and "is a necessary step towards realizing the consumer benefits of Amazon Prime Air," which company founder Jeff Bezos has described as a plan for drone delivery to consumers.
Bezos unveiled his idea for drone deliveries last December, and said the company would be ready to launch Amazon Prime Air as early as 2015 if FAA regulations allowed.
The letter said that over the past five months, "we have made advancements toward the development of highly&#8208;automated aerial vehicles for Prime Air," which travel at over 50 miles (80 kilometers) per hour and can carry loads up to five pounds (2.2 kilos).
The letter to the FAA said the granting the request "will do nothing more than allow Amazon to do what thousands of hobbyists and manufacturers of model aircraft do every day, and we will abide by much stronger safety measures than currently required for these groups."
Amazon's plan is to allow for deliveries of some goods within 30 minutes of an order.
Amazon said it would conduct the tests on its own property in the northwest state of Washington, and on FAA-approved test sites.
It added that "one day, seeing Amazon Prime Air will be as normal as seeing mail trucks on the road today, resulting in enormous benefits for consumers across the nation."

""Obama also said he was open to considering compromise solutions, including calls from Perry and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to deploy national guardsman to the border — if Congress moves on his request for emergency funding." No money. No guardsmen. Simple as that.

Why don't all of you whiners call your congressperson and tell them to approve the request for emergency funding?
how about Obama committing to sending the National Guard, not just being "open to considering" this action?????....

the root problem is that Obama has no credibility and cannot be trusted....

I have a couple of questions for you. I do not expect straight answers but will pose the questions anyhow;
- You do not think is is the duty, the obligation of the border patrol and if required troops to protect out borders and keep out illegals?
- You have no problem with an onslaught many of thousands who have no right to be here?
- If American's are fired on you believe they will not/should not return fire?
- You believe that if Mexican troops fire on Americans that the American's should not retaliate?
There is a very simple solution. The solution is for nobama do his job and protect America's borders. After all he does have a pen and a phone. The constitution means nothing to him.

It takes a very simple minded person to believe there is an easy fix to this crisis..

Fact is, our border is secure...evidenced by the number of illegals being detained. The National Guard is not going to be shooting people trying to cross the border. They are going to be detaining them. Just like the current Border Guards.

IMO, Obama is on the right track by working with the governments of other nations to end the Gang warfare and violence that have lead to the exodus in the first place. That is where the fix must be made. We are not the only country having to deal with this exodus...Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Belize have all seen an increase in immigrants fleeing Central America.

No President has been able to "stop" illegals from crossing the border. Reagan didn't do it. The Busy boys didn't do it. However, Obama did manage to stop the immigration of Mexicans across the border. This is different. This is a humanitarian crisis.

Governor Perry says that Obama "can unilaterally direct the Department of Defense to put those troops on the border…" Simple statement. Not a solution. Republicans never think things out. Fact is, this exodus began long before Obama enacted the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals. The two have no connection.

So, to answer you questions:

Yes, it is the duty of the border patrol to protect our borders but they can only do that by apprehending those who cross the border. Not much they can do before they cross.

Yes, I have a problem with an onslaught of many of thousands who have no right to be here and, in most cases, I expect them to be returned to their homelands once those countries are safe for their return.

I don't believe American troops will be fired upon unless they fire over the border. The thought of shooting women and children fleeing for their lives is just plain insane and without justification under any circumstances. Anyone who thinks otherwise isn't thinking.

By mere presence they can deter the attempts of crossing the border. If turned away immediately, before they actually cross the border, the attempts will begin to shrink.

Then why put National Guard troops on the border? What do you expect them to do that the Border Agents haven't already been doing? They will apprehend and detain those crossing the border. These are not Mexicans crossing in the dark of night hoping not to be caught. These are desperate people hoping to make it to the U.S. border where they view apprehension as a Godsend.
