The administration is incompetent. Just as with tax inversion, he is asleep at the wheel and problem gets ahead of him. Solution. Make it legal: Obama Says U.S. Could Start Limited Refugee Program in Central America - President Speaks Following Meeting With Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador Leaders

From The Wall Street Journal:

President Barack Obama said Friday the U.S. is considering a limited refugee program in Central America, for the first time allowing young people to apply for entry without first making the dangerous trek north.

With Congress deadlocked on a broader White House request for border funding, the refugee plan is one step the administration says it can take on its own to try to stem a surge in unaccompanied Central American minors illegally entering the U.S. from Mexico. White House officials said the program would be based in Honduras, a nation gripped by gang violence and the source of the largest number of unaccompanied Central American minors apprehended on the U.S. border this fiscal year.
