The current President of the United States is responsible for this CURRENT mess. And as we watched on the CBS Sunday morning news interviews, his Cabinet Secretary for this area seems 'not really ready' for accepting responsibility for the cries from this Crisus.

I think it better, that kids be housed in better, more personal and roomy federal environments in Calif, even here at Moffit Federal Airfield than remain crammed (illegally) in Texas detention and warehouse facilities. PERIOD. And for God's sake document who they entered with (even if Abula or an aunt) and what their family connections are before moving them anywhere!

It is desperate to 'send the children' alone, but we have seen or read or viewed that type of family desperation before - in Europe, in Africa, in Asia, and now again in the Americas.
