I shared some of my personal observations after touring the facility at Ft. Sill, currently housing unaccompanied children who crossed the border illegally. That set off a heated conversation among viewers…
Maria was angry that I pointed out the cleanliness of the facility:
"Where you expecting chaos and fecal matter every where? ? They are children from another country, not animals."
I talked about the kids making phone calls and Kay wrote:
"They need to be calling their families and telling them to meet their children at the boarder, because they are coming bavk home."
"Welcome to the USA, refugees. I am very sad about the circumstances that motivated you to risk your life to come to us.."
"no money should be allotted, or military manpower for illegals. They are cutting benefits for active duty & our families, yet these kids are receiving better than the combat vets."
Reba from Del City:
"I'd like to have free housing and medical insurance or at least be able to go to the dr."
Traci in Yukon:
"The most "stifled" My2Cents I've ever seen. But anyone paying attention...can read between the "lines". I agree with everything you couldn't say Kelly."
