  • James Atlanta

    The judge made them give their "complete name, date of birth, address and telephone number in open court", no less. Can you imagine being asked to identify yourself in a United States court. The nerve of the judge. Reading the comments of those interviewed in this article it becomes clear that the object of all this complaining is to be able to continue to game the system and delay any real disposition of these cases so that the children will be able to quietly slip away and become another illegal alien who cannot be found.

    The only way to put the "coyotes" out of business is to make it plain that when caught these children will be promptly returned to their country of origin so it is a waste of money to pay to get them to the US in the first place.
