    I guess now we’re supposed to be the World’s Parents along with the the World’s Policeman.

    The media loved it when the Democrats send Elian Gonzalez back to Cuba.

    Republicans voted for the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 along side Democrats. It passed Congress unanimously and was signed into law by Bush. The unintended consequence of the bi-partisan law is we cannot legally send home these kids until after we give them a hearing to see if we should give them refugee status and allow them to stay.

    If the Pres enforces the law on the books, the kids will reside in the US of A until they get hearings, meaning about two years.
    -
    If the Pres asks Congress to alter or amend the law on the books, Congress will talk a lot, consult Ted and do nothing.
    -
    If the Pres uses his best judgment in the matter, and acts on his own, he risks another dreaded Boehner lawsuit, maybe impeachment.
    -
    Obviously the Pres should enforce the law on the books, letter for letter, making each step clear, and trust the Fox Rush Noise and Sarah Palin, in good faith, to explain the how’s and why’s of his actions.
    -
    100 days until we vote.

    A very clear summation, good job. This Congress has accomplished almost nothing. I read they passed about one bill per six Representatives this year. Most of them were to commemorate or dedicate something. I have been around for a long time and have never seen a more completely dysfunctional Congress. If they had performance reviews, everyone of them would be on the way out. We can only hope the voters recognize the train wreck that has been going on and send in some new blood.

    Send them all to Chicago, or South Central LA. It’ll be like they never left home.

    Those three countries they are escaping from were turned into such cesspools by the US actions and manipulations in them. That and the god awful Drug Wars that created more problems not solved any.

    Sending them back to either certain death, or joining gangs doesn’t figure into it?

    Exactly. The cartoonist apparently can’t argue against the fact that people who enter our country illegally should be deported, so the cartoon makes a purely emotional argument. But of course if we followed the cartoon to its logical conclusion we should be importing billions of people into our country.

    It wouldn’t be a 50% rise in cost. Maybe 25 cents.
