Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And i believe we must control the borders we locked the doors of our homes we have to we have to have control over who comes in and goes out and who they are and why they're doing it but at the same time i don't think we should blame are allow children to be abused because of parents and adults misbehavior you know my first question i asked it in my op ed was who are these adult south of the border that are either abandoning or leading or letting these children come to the border and go through this predator strewn trek across the south across mexico to get to the united states and eighty percent of them are showing up unaccompanied by themselves and i'm told that a horrifically high number of the girls have been sexually abused by the time they get to the border i mean this this is horrific child abuse that happens on the south side of the border but we shouldn't compounded on the north side of the border i think we've got to but the welfare of children i however they got here i wanna ask you what may sound like a loaded question and the website is sas dot edu it is the president of the southern evangelical seminary dr richard land i it's going to sound loaded but it's not i mean this insanely how is it that we weren't thinking of the children i by separating them from people who are breaking the law and we weren't keeping them in cages and detained a detention centers we were sending them basically the recreation centers have you've seen the pictures of the videos they had great amenities and we listen doctor you and i both can agree that we didn't know that these even their parents or relatives they could have been pretending to be relevant children as i pointed out in my op ed you know eighty eighty percent of the people are starting unaccompanied a huge increase in the number of children have have shown with adults who are not their parents right legal biological or otherwise in fact i'm told by high officials and the justice department that they are going to start using dna kits to have to the the the lawbreakers have figured out the way to game the system is destroyed with children and that these become the trojan horse that gets them into the country and also one of the things that people don't seem to understand because of the way the press is reporting is if you show up at a valid point of entry and you clay you ask you make a claim for asylum you're not going to be put in jail anyway you're going to get a hearing but if you try to cross the border illegally not at a valid entry point then you're going to be arrested for breaking the law and the the court system our federal court system has a ruling that says that children cannot be detained with their parents for longer than a certain periods that's why they're being separated you know but when you see these images of small children being separated from their parents i mean you know there is a trauma effect we know this if nothing else we not from world war two from the children who were evacuated this had long term consequences i listen i'm i i would hate to have been separated from my parents when i was right boy so yeah we we i believe we got to enforce the law we we've got to deal with people who are trying to come in legally but we we you know this is why for instance i am for a pathway to at least permanent legal status for for the the children who were brought here by their parents because they didn't break the law their parents.
