No Need for the National Guard at the Mexican Border

Recently there have been thousands of minor immigrants, children, crossing our border unaccompanied by an adult. The House Speaker, John Boehner seems to think that the Obama administration is to blame for this rising problem. Mr. Boehner called out to President Obama requesting that the National Guard be deployed and actively present at our Southern Mexico border.

He stated that "It is our duty and obligation to enforce the laws of our country while protecting the most vulnerable and ensuring they are healthy and well protected."

However, this plea is not the answer to the current problem and deploying the National Guard is not necessary. The National Guard is not specifically trained on how to care for children; they are called upon when an act of force is needed. Unless the United States takes action to train the National Guard in caring for the children and dealing with this specific matter, there is really no need for them to be present and assisting with this issue.

The unaccompanied immigrants, or innocents, are young children and they should not be forcibly sent back across the border. In fact, the majority of these minors are from South America, not from Mexico. With that in mind it would be senseless to turn them around and send them back to Mexico as if they were a Mexican national child.

The primary beneficiaries of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) were Mexican national children who were immediately turned back around to Mexico. In the meantime all South American Innocents cannot be returned to home country immediately and should therefore be kept here until they can be returned.

While deploying the National Guard may assist in simply securing the border, it is not necessary in light of the fact that we are dealing with children. A better solution to this problem would be to take all unaccompanied immigrants and to care and house them in a safe place until plans can be made to return them to their home country.
