Treat children as refugees

By From page A8 | August 01, 2014

Let us consider all the children at the border crossings as refugees. Remember that unless you are descended from Native Americans, you or your ancestors were refugees at one time.

So let us ask every billionaire, millionaire, member of Congress and every Spanish-speaking family in the United States to agree to adopt one refugee child. This goes for every democracy in South America as well.

Ask every teacher of English as a second language to go to the border crossings and begin to teach these children to speak English. And ask every judge to accept these children as refugees.
