Watching and listening to the hysteria about the children being separated from their parents is mind numbing. These parents are making a conscious decision to cross the border, illegally, knowing the consequences for their actions. They are fully aware of the United States border security forces and ICE that are doing their jobs to deter any illegal entrance to our country. They, as parents are putting themselves and their children in a precarious situation, but purposely make that choice. If their children are crying, the parents are the blame. Detaining and deporting illegals is not a new concept. So, why all the hysteria now?
