The Texas Border

I recently read an article about the Texas border. According to the article, this year over 60,000 illegal immigrants, all minors, have been apprehended. They are other than Mexicans, coming from further south in Central America. The government directives are to detain and house them in facilities ranging from large homes in Conroe to holding cells in Del Rio to Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. Rumors flying among Border Patrol agents say the government is paying contractors up to $900 per day for each of them and that they will eventually be turned loose in this country. It appears to me that the contractors are the ones getting rich and we the taxpayers are footing the bill. This is business as usual in the land of the free and the brave.
