Letter: How can children foil our border security?
First Published Jun 12 2014 04:41 pm • Last Updated Jun 12 2014 05:20 pm

What kind of security do we have on our southern border when 40,000 children were able to cross into the U.S.? Can you imagine children being able to cross our border without being caught? Where is the security?

Now these 40,000 children will be able to claim U.S. citizenship or some kind of hardship to citizenship.

Are our protected borders that easy to cross? Is it that easy for a child to cross the border, or do we have a policy that lets these children into the US.?

I would love to have our Washington officials explain to us the policy why children are able to cross our so-called protected border.
