Is this a problem or a solution?

Re "Immigrant children deserve compassion, not taunting" (Editorial, July 6): What to do with all these young, poor, tired, hungry, terrified children from gang-infested Central American countries arriving at our borders. These "poor, tired, wretched masses, yearning to breathe free." (Where did I first see those words again?)

Wait a minute. Didn't I read that there aren't enough young workers paying into social security, and because of that, the system is going broke? Are these kids really a problem? Maybe they're a solution. If so, are we smart enough to realize it?

I think these kids should be welcomed, cared for, loved and educated. I can't imagine the trauma they've already been through. In the future, we should reflect on who we are, where we are, what this country has been and what it should still be.
