Funny how Mexican officials make the excuse that they don't want to risk the safety of "families" that broke the law compared to "individuals". The parents who dragged their kids here weren't terribly concerned about who or what they rubbed shoulders with on the way up, not to mention...they broke the law TOO when sneaking across the border.

This program may sound expensive but a plane ride back to Mexico is still cheaper than housing and supporting them for life. I'd rather my tax dollars went to their repatriation than to their freeloading off of us forever.
