Computer Problems, Horrible Pain, and the Surge of Minor Immigrants

I apologize for my absence from blogging but I had computer problems and my pain has been awful. My medicine only helps the pain a little bit. It is still extreme much of the time so for that reason my blogging may be intermittent but I am going to try to be around the blogosphere as much as possible. More than I have been recently. 

Immigration: As an unprecedented wave of undocumented children from Central America spills over our Texas border, a veteran lawmen's organization has declared it an "orchestrated" event. If so, who benefits?
To date, there hasn't been a word from the White House or its agencies urging families in Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador not to send their children alone through Mexico's merciless badlands infested with cartel criminals to reach the U.S. There's some Twitter activity and little else.
But the newspapers and television stations throughout Central America are falsely reporting that amnesty will be theirs if they can just make it through the Mexican obstacle course — and that the time to do it is now.
It doesn't matter that these children are likely to succumb to desert heat, be snatched by vicious human traffickers, forced into prostitution, slavery or the drug trade, or simply murdered as has already happened to thousands, as the white crosses at the border can attest.
Not since the radio broadcasts that triggered Rwanda's Tutsi massacres in 1994 has such false information been spread unchecked by authorities who might be able with just their words to make a difference. Continued

Yes, I believe that the Obama administration is culpable at least in part for the sudden massive wave of minor immigrants who are illegally crossing the border. 

Two added problems of immigrants crossing the border illegally is gang-related crimes resulting in a rising threat to public safety and deadly diseases such as malaria and Chagas Disease entering the U.S. 

Now the big question is how do we handle the enormous number of minor immigrants who have crossed the border illegally?
