Parents who pay to send their unaccompanied children to US could be prosecuted for trafficking
Those who pay to send unaccompanied children to this country could be found guilty of human trafficking violations. That is the real story here. It is an attempt to stop this abuse of the US welfare system by parents, most of whom are in Central America. There attempt to shift the financial burden of caring for their children to US taxpayers should not be seen as acceptable.
Draft memos signed by the homeland security secretary appear to spare many immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. But some parents could face prosecution.
