Children in warehouses?

A senior Republican has proposed that the US government should build “warehouses” in Central America where thousands of unaccompanied children who have attempted to seek asylum in the US could be deported and processed on their return to their countries of origin.

Michael McCaul, a Republican member of Congress from Texas who chairs the House committee on homeland security, has proposed that rather than build extra facilities on domestic soil to handle the surge in numbers of child immigrants attempting to cross the US border, facilities should be located in the territories from which the minors came. “I’m not in favour of building large warehouses in the US to warehouse these kids, I think we have to have deterrence and if we are to build facilities we should think about doing that in the countries of origin in Central America,” he said.

McCaul's proposal is stupid, on a couple of levels. One that is obvious: the U.S. Congress does not have the authority to build facilities in other countries. The emotional term "warehouse" is appropriate, unfortunately, because the U.S. southern border is being overrun by tens of thousands of minors, and any facilities built by the U.S. government will have the function of being places to temporarily hold large numbers of youth who are exceeding available resources.

This writer is untrue when he says President Obama "caused" this disaster (and, with the many people dying as they tried to get here, and suffering even if they made it, and being recruited into violent criminal gangs, it is indeed a disaster). The young people are being sent because of the horrible conditions in their native countries and the hope of a better life in the U.S. But, President Obama's decision not to secure the border is the sina qua non for the large numbers which are now coming, because they would not come in these large numbers if they did not expect to get into the U.S. and find a better life, which would not be the case if they were blocked from entering.

Still not condemning the practice.
