Child migrants should stay in Mexico and out of the U.S. [Letter]

August 26, 2014

Regarding your editorial about unaccompanied children from Central America illegally crossing our borders, what's wrong with them stopping and settling in Mexico? ("Death by deportation," Aug. 24).

Central and South Americans (and there are lots of them) are passing through Mexico anyway to get up here and they already speak Spanish in Mexico, so why don't they remain there instead continuing on to the U.S.?

Mexico is a big country and not completely crime-ridden by any means. Has anyone thought to ask the president of Mexico to help deal with this situation? There are lots of nice places in Mexico.
