What's being said

  • Realist

    If we find more lawyers for these children, then even more children will come.
    If every adult in America were a lawyer, there would not be enough lawyers to represent all the poor miserable children of the world who would like to come to the USA. All of these children should be returned to their home country. It would be much cheaper to fly them home, and pay for orphanages in their home country, than to endure the continuing disruption of our nation caused by this influx of children.
