We have two choices when it comes to border security and interior enforcement. We can continue telegraphing the message that when you come here with children you are home free. This will continue fueling the drug crisis, growing MS-13, enriching the drug cartels, inducing sex trafficking and terrible crimes at the border, encouraging illegals to kidnap children to gain admission, and causing death and mayhem on both sides of the border. Or we could finally deter this behavior by announcing an end to any immigration requests not processed in a controlled environment through our embassy. If you are concerned about “separating children” and don’t support the latter path, then you need to seriously examine your values and priorities.


Here are the facts:

DACA created the surge of Central American teens

From the time DACA was announced, in 2012, through 2014, the number of unaccompanied minors apprehended from El Salvador, Guatamala, and Honduras increased 490 percent, 444 percent, and 610 percent respectively...

Thus, it is incontrovertibly clear that amnesty and refugee policies for those coming with children are what incentivized the chain reaction of smuggling that empowers drug cartels and leads to all the social ills for the migrants, not just Americans who have to deal with the consequences.


The surge of central American teens fueled the drug and gang crises

Once we had a surge in Central American teenagers, they served as drug mules and diversions and also paid the drug smugglers record funds to get in. This is why, according to the DEA, the poppy fields of the Mexican drug cartels tripled from 2013 to 2016. They are also the recruiting grounds of MS-13. The Washington Post recently wrote a story on how MS-13 is tearing apart schools in Maryland and hurting some of these very children people claim to care about....

Sadly, not only does this hurt Americans, but it hurts the very innocent illegal alien children those pushing the policy claim to care about. ...


The collapse of interior enforcement and rise of sanctuaries allowed drug distributors to flourish

And remember, where you have MS-13, you have a spike in drugs. All those tens of thousands of primarily young Americans dying from heroin, meth, and fentanyl? It’s all being distributed by the drug cartels and gangs of criminal aliens we let in and refuse to deport....

If you truly feel bad about separating families of both illegal aliens and Americans and all the chain reaction of woe it brings, you’d support automatic and immediate denial of entry and deportation for families – together.

President Trump needs to use his inherent Article II powers to stop entry as well as his delegated authority from Congress under 212(f) of the INA....

The most compassionate thing to do for the people of Mexico and Central American tracks very closely with the most compassionate course of action for the American people — you know, the people the politicians are actually supposed to represent. And that means closing the border to all migration once and for all. No good can ever come from encouraging migration across a border controlled by some of the most evil people in the world, and that is a point on which we should all agree.
