An Arizona sheriff has warned that another surge of illegal immigration is flooding across the borders in the form of unaccompanied children.
Pinal County Sheriff, and Republican congressional candidate, Paul Babeu told Fox Business’ Neil Cavuto on Monday that his state has been flooded with 10,000 unaccompanied children in the past two months.
“The arms are open, and that’s the message that’s been sent,” Babeu said.
“I think it’s the most compassionate thing we can do, is reunite them with their families in Central America. What America should be doing is finding ways to solve the problems of violence in Central America, support their governments, because if we don’t solve that core problem, this isn’t going to end. We’re going to have this problem next month, next year, and then we own these people, and all the social network to support them for their entire lives,” Babeu told Cavuto. “Because if you think that these kids are going anywhere, think again. They’re staying here.”
While America is a compassionate nation, he said there “has to be a limit” to our compassion.
“The new norm here is the Obama administration says the border is wide open (and) that there is no law when it comes to immigration,” he said. “I will not accept that.”
