Strong reaction to my commentary on teenage illegal immigrants flooding into our country and being bused to Fort Sill in Lawton.

We have no long term plan to care for them and I think we need to return them to their homelands.

Cathy in Custer City writes: "For once Kelly I agree with you!!First thing we need to do is take care of the kids HERE! So many of our kids living in shelters, not getting enough to eat, no health care."

Caron in Norman: "If we open this Pandora's Box now, we might as well open up the borders too. They will come by the bus loads."

Margie in Tonkawa: "Kelly I'm ashamed of you, they are children that's what the United States use to stand for, now it's all about the money."

Richard writes: "Many parents are bringing their kids to the US border because they have heard that the US will let them stay and take care of them."

Mitch in Altus: "Oklahoma cannot afford to take care of a load of illegal children."

Several like Deb railed on me personally: "Your words on the undocumented children coming from Central America show a total lack of human decency and compassion."

NONE of my critics offered any solutions on who will raise all of these children.

Finally Karen writes: "My heart goes out to them but if we let this happen soon our wonderful country would be just like theirs."

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's YOUR 2 Cents.
