    Companies, small businesses, and farmers hire illegals. Farmers hire them because Americans won't do the work. The others do it because they can pay them a lot less and they don't have to offer benefits. So, if this weren't the case, and illegals couldn't get work here, they wouldn't come here. What do you think the real solution is? The wall isn't it. Those companies that hire illegals should be fined, and that fine should be in an amount that makes it financially unsound for them to continue hiring illegals.

    Trump administration - "Zero tolerance for morality and ethics! Thumbs up to human rights abuses!"

    (His minions cheer and roar in the background).

    Arrest, detain, prosecute and deport. Hire the judges and provide the infrastructure at the border. And yes, build the damn wall.

    It's too bad we don't have 'zero tolerance' for violent crimes, like assault, rape, murder, and more heinous crimes.

    102 cases are unresolved because the parents didn’t want to be reunited. Holy Geezus. Can u imagine just being abandoned like that? What kind of monster does that?

    If there was a wall, and they couldn't get in, there wouldn't be a issue.
    The real issue is why did the democratic party change their view of illegal immigrants. i.e. the Clintons and Obama, maybe you should research it. The more you know the less you can be ruled by the elites.

    Basic journalism in this country has gone way down in performance.....spell-checking and proof-reading is a thing of the past.

    Veronica Escobar, a Democrat who just won in the 16th District in Texas.

    "What this administration is doing is trying to create this sense of
    fear and crisis so the president can feed his obsession of a border
    wall," she said.

    No need to instill fear, the enemy is here. MS13 is here. ISIS is here. What more evidence does she need?

    Wow, I'm amazed there's only 8 of them left. Typically the government doesn't do things that quickly

    Love the headline, its all trumps fault.

    Did anyone do anything to change the law? If you don't want to be in trouble don't break the law, don't subject your kids to breaking our laws, come to america legally and this won't happen. Like many millions of other immigrants.

    The real problem is many past "leaders" have looked the other way and decided to allow this to continue.

    It's telling that the Trump administration was able to split up the families in no time at all, but when it came time to reunite them, they wrung their hands and stuttered out pleas for "more time."

    "New government figures released Friday show that the U.S. Border Patrol arrested 51,856 individuals attempting to illegally cross the southern border in November. That's a 78 percent increase over the same period last year." NPR

    We cannot separate them and we cannot hold the children so we cannot hold the parents. All we can do now is try to keep them out. Military and barriers.

    Donnie's fanatics really believe he wants to stop illegal immigration while he and many other rich phony types hire illegals all the time. Great con game. Best way to make money!!
