Another sage voice calling for recognition of Central American children as refugees
Here is a brief opinion piece that clearly looks at the children arriving at the US border as refugees, and not unscrupulous illegals trying to exploit some loophole. It also laments the approach being taken by national lawmakers of investing lots of money in tighter border controls and detention of these children, as opposed to more efficient processing of their cases as refugees. These kids are seeking out law enforcement officers and surrendering themselves to them, not trying to sneak over the border.
