    Pre-pandemic, unemployment was at or below 4% and there were 2 million unfilled jobs, if I remember correctly. Most “kids” I know don’t work because they don’t have to but some definitely do out of necessity, supporting their family. Who still gets a newspaper thrown in the bushes these days?
    Papers are down dramatically I know.  All the paper boy routes were eliminated from fear of abductions here, no shit.  Also liability issues.  I remember my route and others going to an adult in a car and it's been like that ever since.  One person delivering a few hundred newspapers each morning.

    As far as kids not needing to work, is that a good idea to teach kids?  Do parents not make their progeny earn things anymore?
    A lot do not.
    After all they are too busy with video games and texting to hold down a job or do home chores.

    Apparently this is a mostly uniquely American problem.
    In other countries kids do chores, have jobs, respect their elders and parents.
    Some parents do not want their kids to work. They tell them to focus on school and extracurriculars, in the belief that this is what will get them into a “good” university. It’s a mistake in my opinion. First, the lessons you learn holding down a job are different but just as valuable as those you learn at school, and second, you just don’t value something as much when you don’t put in the work to earn it. 

    yah.. my parents seemed to use a fairly hands off approach when it came to parenting.  Not much of an allowance.  Not much money for anything.  If you wanted anything from a concert ticket or university tuition you had to do it on your own. As a result I was working paper routes when I was young, and pretty much started working at 16.

    I've realize later in life, that it's made me crazy independent, and I hold a core belief that you have to hold your own, cause no one else is going to do it for you.

    I've come to believe that not everyone has the mentality.   I'm not sure if it comes from parenting or if's just in personality.

    My brother is the same way, except he begrudges my parents for not doing more.   I sort of look like at it like, we're both dong pretty good, we're both pretty independent making decent incomes.   Not doing much, seems to have given us the same drive to do better.  Maybe it's not such a bad thing.

    Yep awful humans doing shot like this no doubt glad you posted it but it also proves that a wall is not a stop all immigrants measure! You see your hero president who had 4 years to actually try to do something about this crisis failed he just thought a wall would be the answer, well it isn’t I believe the answer has to be done diplomatic by engaging with these Central American countries to try to get them to do more about their dire conditions in those countries so their citizens don’t want to flee to come here ! 
    Did dropping 3 and 5 year olds over a wall get you to notice? Did it touch a nerve? Good, get pissed.  This is atrocious and it needs to be stopped (like it had been for months before Joe stepped in).
    lol if you believe the crisis started when Joe took office you’re wrong do some research you know zero about immigration issues!

    No he clearly knows that the only place undocumented immigrants come across a U.S. border is at the Texas border. Nowhere else do undocumented immigrants seek asylum in the United States. 
    Just the brown people trying to steal American jobs and votes.

    What a racist asshole that Biden is. Afraid of brown people, Joe? 

    Snarkiness aside, the wall was the only Trump idea I kinda liked. Not the stupid “Mexico will pay for it” crap, just the idea of a border wall to curb illegal immigration. And if Joe thinks it’s a good idea to continue construction, he should. Sure the political fallout will be annoying (the right celebrating that Biden is admitting Trump was right about something, the left’s heads exploding for the same reason), but a real president, as so many (especially here) say Joe is (unlike Trump), shouldn’t care about that sort of fallout.

    I don’t have a problem with the wall! I do have a problem with children being separated from parents and yes this issue has to be dealt with no matter who is president, but I def trust this administration to be way more thoughtful on their approach compared to we hat Nazi Miller had in mind!

    The wall has been built in parts for over 40 years now.  My buddy worked on it in AZ from 2008-2012.  He has friends that continued to work on it since then.

    Yeah the separating of children from their families was ridiculous and I bet many haven't been reunited with their families, which is truly sad. Tragic actually.

    these things should absutely be investigated. fucking shame it looks as though its only because theres a D admin now.

    Texas investigating abuse allegations at migrant facility
    By PAUL J. WEBER and NOMAAN MERCHANT
    Yesterday

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas child welfare officials said Wednesday they received three reports alleging abuse and neglect at a San Antonio coliseum that is holding more than 1,600 immigrant teenagers who crossed the southern border.

    It is the first time state officials announced they are investigating such allegations at one of the emergency facilities the U.S. government has quickly set up in Texas amid a sharp increase in crossings of unaccompanied youths. A county official who also volunteers at the San Antonio site, the Freeman Coliseum, said the nature of the allegations do not align with what she has seen in multiple visits to the facility.

    Child welfare officials would not reveal details about who made the allegations, but Republican Gov. Greg Abbott said his understanding was that they came from someone who had been inside the facility. One of the allegations include sexual abuse, but no further details were provided.

    Other allegations include insufficient staffing, children not eating and those who tested positive for COVID-19 not being separated, Abbott said at a news conference that he quickly arranged outside the facility Wednesday evening. For weeks, Abbott has joined Republicans in criticizing the Biden administration for the handling of the migration challenge at the U.S. southern border.

    “This facility should shut down immediately. The children should be moved to better staffed and better secured locations,” Abbott said.

    Bexar County Commissioner Rebeca Clay-Flores, who has been inside the facility as both an elected official and volunteer, said the teenagers are offered three meals and two snacks a day and anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 is put in a separate area far from other children. She toured the facility with Abbott after his press conference and said he asked staff questions that included COVID-19 testing protocols.

    “I wish the governor had done his tour before the press conference when he politicized children,” said Clay-Flores, an elected Democrat.

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement that it could not comment on specific cases but “has a zero-tolerance policy for all forms of sexual abuse, sexual harassment, and inappropriate sexual behavior.”

    The allegations were received by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Spokesman Patrick Crimmins said he did not immediately know if the state had received other abuse or neglect allegations at emergency sites for migrant youths in Texas.

    HHS has rushed to open large sites to house migrant children across the Southwest amid a sharp increase in crossings of unaccompanied youths at the southern border. The agency’s lack of capacity as border crossings were rising at the start of the Biden administration has led to children sometimes waiting for weeks in overcrowded and unsuitable Border Patrol facilities.

    Just in March and April, HHS has added more than 17,000 beds at convention centers, camps for oil field workers, and military bases — more than doubling the capacity of its longstanding system of permanent facilities that took years to open.

    The U.S. government last month had stopped taking immigrant teenagers to one site in Midland as it faced questions about the safety of the emergency sites. Midland County District Attorney Laura Nodolf said Wednesday that they have been “faced with allegations that have resulted in an ongoing criminal investigation” but offered no further details. She said the allegations were also reported to federal officials.

    To staff its emergency sites, HHS waived regulations that normally apply to its permanent facilities, including bypassing FBI fingerprint background checks for all caregivers. It has hired a mix of contractors and nonprofits to staff the sites, with job postings going up in several cities seeking people to start work immediately. There is no information to suggest any staff member is accused of assaulting a child.
