$750 a day to "care" for the kids? A better solution

Offer $750 a day to local Spanish-speaking families to HOST these kids..

Put ankle bracelets on them if necessary to track them, but put them into families who could surely find a comfy space for them, and who would spend that windfall ($5250 a week) locally...

Let the border nazis find something else to do..take down the tents and return the "former-Walmarts" to their empty building status.

1. Or put the older ones up at a Disney Hotel at Disney World or Disneyland

and buy them season's passes to the theme parks. For meals, they can order room service.

That would still save money, and the kids would have nice showers, beds, and lots of fun.

2. Good Idea

Could we have a congressional staffer, who is already being paid, assigned to five immigrant families? They could take history's, go to court, and track down relatives. If all 435 offices would do this we could learn so much and make a dent in this crisis.

3. But, but - how would DeVos make millions off them with drumpf getting a percentage?

That and hateful racism are the only reasons this is happening - everything else is just more lies.

4. Christ, how about not separate them from their parents and guardians in the first place?

5. Just dealing with the circumstances we HAVE

Until Trumpster is gone, we have what we have.

In a perfect world, we would have courts & judges and fairness in their home countries, but we don't.... we have THIS mess..

6. Better yet, call family members and reunite them.

I couldn't believe one little girl had a bracelet with the phone number for a parent and no one had even bothered to let them know she was alive, let alone stuffed in a detention camp.

9. Why not let their families take care of them

If they are not allowed to hold jobs while seeking asylum, the I would bet many of the refugee families could survive on $750 a week for a family of four!

According to what I have read MOST of the children being held have parents or relatives that they were traveling with, but that they were separated from. Let their families take care of them and stop torturing both the children and their parents.
