Really? There are 2 obvious ones. And 2 or more other children depending on your confidence in identifying children's faces.

You do know children are short, don't you. Personally, I'd guess that there are more working age adults than children.

I think the OP's point is that there are significantly more military age men than there are children. Regarding not seeing shorter children, I agree, that is a logical assumption. I was basing my assumption from other images and videos. I'm sure all of the children will be put front and center when it comes time to cross the border. They'll do just like Syrians do with Isreal.

Nah, walking 3,000 miles is better than staying here where we are. It isn't that I want them to come here. How can we help make there better enough that they can stay there?

Well, the facts seem to be :
1. As many as 7,000 people think it is worth it to walk over 1,000 miles for a chance to stay in the US.
2. Foreign aid we send is intended to reduce the despair that leads to people emigrating.
3. trump wants to cut aid, which by the earlier logic, should make things worse.
4. At least some of the people in the group fear death is imminent and that is why they risk the journey.
5. Citizens, perhaps of little resource, are giving food and water to the travelers.
6. NAFTA and weed legalization, plus crop subsidies have hurt Mexico.
7. We can choose to spend money and resources at our border, or we can try to make the world a better place, if for no other reason than to keep immigrants out.

I thought conservatives were largely religious and many christian, don't they teach generosity and kindness?

They also teach us to respect national sovereignty. I guess they miss that bit in civics in libland? Seems most liberals don't think we have the right to decide who comes into our own country. I hope they have the same policy about who can come into their house.

That is a long and sprawling border. It even has tunnels under it. I'm not saying we should let everyone in or nobody in. I mean to get people thinking about all the other methods, which could be used together, to effect lower illegal immigration while reducing costs for securing the border, for deporting persons, and for detaining persons.
What are they fleeing? Can we make that better?
Are they coming through Mexico? How can we partner with them to help?
Could Mexico arrest Coyotes?
Does a trade deal diminish circumstances in the foreign nation? (US beat the scat out of Mexican crop labor).
Can we make a cost-free statement on the world state to discourage bad policies in other nations.
Should we stop selling weapons to a nation?
Does it cost more to run the border with trade goods going in both directions?
Should we steal their children and only deport the parents?

It is just not as simple as stopping them at the border.

If I thought it would maybe save the life of me and my family, I'd walk from Mexico to Canada. I'd f**king walk.

I guarantee you it will be more expensive to try to fix a broken nation than to try to protect our border. We can't fix what they are fleeing from and it is not our responsibility. That is up to them and maybe the UN or volunteer organizations. We have enough poor here in the states that aren't getting attention without spending our tax dollars on the poor of another nation or letting more in. We need to fix our own problems before we decide we are capable of fixing others'

"can we make that better?" is not equal to "fix a broken nation". Not even close.

The reason they come is because their nation is broken. Politically and economically busted. There is no fixing this until they take charge of their own fate and do something about it. Unless you are suggesting nation building which is obscenely expensive on our part and at extreme risk of corruption. We have been here before many times, we don't need to make the same mistakes again. You cannot help someone that doesn't want to help themselves

I am a conservative, but in no way shape or form religious and christian. Generosity and kindness is great on your dime, don't need a single penny (other than the taxes we already pay to support the parasites) of my money to be spent.

7000 people...none of them with jobs, doubtful they have any skill to become productive immediately, so WTF do we need them here for? You going to let them stay with you in your mom's basement? Again, this is not a problem America needs to be in. Place the troops at the border, and if they decide to cross illegally, then I say open fire, and don't just aim to wound them.

Jaden, if you're interested in what Christianity teaches about generosity and kindness, it teaches each person should decide in their hearts what to give when it comes to giving their own time, money, resources, etc. That can be found in 2nd Corinthians chapter 9. Generosity is encouraged, but giving of your resources should never be done reluctantly or by being compelled. Elsewhere in Galations 6 it talks about how each person has their own personal responsibility in life to carry. Things like developing skills to get & maintain an occupation, providing for your own food & shelter, etc. Christianity teaches that we shouldn't drop that responsibility and put it on others. Of course, there are some people who truly can't do some of these things, so in those special circumstances we should help others with their basic life responsibilities. Ultimately, Christianity, or life in general, teaches us the wisdom to recognize when and how to help.

Now if you apply all that to this scenario with the mob of people coming up from Central America who are determined to come illegally into the U.S. and demanding we provide them with jobs, healthcare, shelter, etc., we as a country have every right to say yes or no to those demands. Jesus didn't always give to everybody who asked him for something. Moreover, when people demand your resources, then you have every right to say no and Christian teachings would back you up on that.

I'm not really sure what you mean by that comment, Jaden. If you're referring to the Judeo-Christian practice of tithing, then yeah it's 10% off the top of your earnings. I could expand on that, but I'm not really sure if or how you're trying to apply that to this situation with the mob of people coming up from Central America. Care to clarify & elaborate?

Translation : Do not come here because gangs are stealing all your money, might kidnap your children, and may kill you. Don't come here because we WILL kill you.

You could say any of those things about what they could do here once they arrive. It's not unheard of for illegal immigrants to be members of gangs, to kidnap, or to kill. So they shouldn't have to put up with that risk at home but we should?

Nothing at all, it has to do with the way you are assuming they are all peaceful refugees. Have you seen the videos of them burning US flags? And if their home is so bad why are they marching under their flag singing their national anthem?

I don't remember claiming they're all "peaceful refugees". No, I haven't seen any imagery of this caravan burning US flags. OK, they're singing a foreign national anthem. You would expect them to be singing ours?

If their intention is to come up here to stay? Might not be a bad idea
