Border crisis is upsetting to reader

I personally think that someone needs to be held accountable for what’s going on at the southern border.

Once they are found out, Republican or Democrat, they ought to be taken to the Hague and tried for crimes against humanity.

With the opening of the border, one of the big promotions is the trafficking of children by opening the border. Using them in getting drugs into the states, using them for sex.

Giving the idea to those in those quote, parents and others, of the Central American countries to give their kids a chance at a better life.

Some of these kids are abused! Do you think these smugglers are watching out for their best interests? No! You are welcome to look this up.

Two Ecuadorian toddler girls were dropped from a 14-foot border wall in New Mexico, and left alone back in April. A 5-year-old boy was dropped off by smugglers at the Texas border. He was found in the evening hours with his teddy bear screaming and crying for his momma.

Most recently, a 5-year-old girl was found wandering near the Tijuana /California border… alone.

Take a good hard look at your kids, whether they be fully grown or infants. What if it was your own left alone, abandoned. On the legal end, you’d be arrested for child neglect. But worse yet, your heart breaks for these kids that have been given little to no chance.

If the border where closed, would it stop the problem ? No, not completely. But it certainly would improve things for these kids.

The U. S. wants to give money. I am sorry that some of these countries do not have the wherewithal to care for their own but, we can’t give money and expect perfect results. Some of these countries go though a civil war once every so often. Why? Because some in government take the money for themselves. They are crooked.

We are wasting money. I do not know what the answer is for these poor children but, the possibilities of them being stranded in the desert or worse does not sit well with me! And it shouldn’t with you. What if it was your child?

Close the border and stop the trafficking of children.
