Why is the Obama Administration flying illegal children who have crossed our Southern border from Texas to California? Why not put them on the same planes and fly them home to their parents? What is going on? Obama’s handling of this crisis is not compassionate; these children need to be reunited with their parents. So, why is Obama  not giving orders to send them back home to their parents?
 Some say a law passed by President Bush does not allow them to be turned around and sent back. This has been reported by the media and it is false. The law was passed by President Clinton. It was renewed by President Bush. Some say this crisis requires presidential leadership. They say President Obama should issue an executive order, as he has done many times, to bypass this law, as a one time emergency solution to this problem. Where is his leadership when these children need it? Children should be with their parents, not away in some other country.
 Please Mr. President, send these children back to their parents now! Do the compassionate thing for these children.
