    Concern over illegal immigration in the United States has spiked in public opinion polls since the surge of migrant children from Central America trying to the cross the border began earlier this year. VOA’s Brian Padden reports that while a majority of Americans still support some form of legalization program for undocumented immigrants already in the country, opposition to outright amnesty is growing -- along with support for stronger border security.

    I do feel for these children But we have children and vets right now in this once great nation that need our support first,But yet no seems to care for them.And most of these so called children are over the age of 15 and most need to shave.Now this is the problem.While our border patrol is changing diapers our border is being over run by gangbangers and drug dealers and how about the known criminals that have now been lose in the USA,Do we really think that they will care about our laws? NO they will be doing just what they do best,Home invasions rape murder,But yet our Government will set back and watch as the citizens of this country pay the price,There have already been so many crimes committed by these Parasites and it is going to keep getting worse,So I say until we start caring about our own for once,We must deport these people and make them apply for citizenship like our law states.Right now we have a homeless child and a homeless vet going hungry but I hear no one crying for them.
