One of the most talked-about topics right now is the children at the border. There are thousands of children who have been caught trying to pass the border into the United States. Every day that goes by, more children have been trying to cross and get sent to the border facilities.
Border patrols are struggling on what to do with all the children. Rumors have been going around that the children will be sent to orphanages in the United States, and others will be sent back to their countries.
Many people do not believe these children should be allowed into the United States. But what they don’t see is the horrible situation that the children are living before they tried to cross the border. Children are asked why, and many describe the horrendous violence in their countries and say they are just looking for a safer place.
By sending them back to their countries, it will put their lives in danger. People need to stop and think. What if your kids were in their position? What would you do?
