    I just wanted to add to your report on the separation of immigrant children. While I totally agree what is happening to them is horrible, you did not mention that all these people have crossed the border illegally. They have bi-passed the line to take a chance on not being caught.

    I am a new listener and I have enjoyed your program so far. Thanks for listening.
