How are the migrant children better off in the U.S. than in Mexico considering they speak Spanish, share a culture, yet are being molested..?
and fenced in here in the U.S.?
How are they better off considering we're overloaded and overcrowded?

The US social safety net is more generous than that of Mexico (where the poor aren’t treated all that well).

they are better off remaining in their own country to begin with instead of dragged across multiple countries by parents, or other relatives, or hired smugglers. They are sorely abused long before they manage to illegally enter US (if they manage to enter US). All minor children who enter US illegally should be handed over to their country's consulate for immediate repatriation & reunification with relatives. Convict anyone who brings a minor child into US illegally with child abuse & neglect, & child trafficking. Then deport immediately with permanent bar to reentry. If they ever attempt to reenter US, they serve their full prison term for the child abuse/trafficking charges which were suspended upon deportation in addition to 20 years for reentry while under bar.

They're not. 🥴
But they chose to come here in a large group. So... they reap what they sow and we're exempt from caring.
However, it doesn't mean your kinfolk are at liberty to shoot them at our Walmarts. 🥴😏

The don't share a culture. They aren't Mexicans. You think everyone that is latino shares the same culture??

We are NOT overloaded and overcrowded, especially in the southwest, which is very sparsely populated, so please drop that argument.
Mexico does not have the number of jobs available for them that the US does. Mexico has plenty of its own unskilled workers to do farm labor. It's the US that needs them. Those chicken processing plants that ICE raided recently are still closed for lack of workers. That means chicken is going to become . very scarce in some areas. Meanwhile, there's a prison in Mississippi that's receiving 300-500 asylum seekers a week, who are locked up in cells with concrete floors and little to eat- at a taxpayer cost of $700 a day. Let's process some, give them legal permission to work, and send them to the chicken processing plants.
