Baltimore can't take care of the world's immigrant children [Letter]


I couldn't believe my eyes when I read that immigrant children would be housed in the city ("Feds look to Baltimore to shelter immigrant children," June 9).

They should be housed in their own cities with their parents. Let's keep them safe and healthy and send them back to their families.

The way to avoid this problem is to keep our borders really secure. America is fast becoming not just a place of asylum but an insane asylum, and the inmates are running it.
