Gordon A. Case II: Kids couldn’t get here without help

July 16, 2014 

Somebody tell me how those thousands of illegal immigrant children could walk from their Central American homes, avoid Mexican cities and villages, cross deserts and mountains with no food, no water, no equipment, no help, no directions, no sun protection, clothes in good condition and arrive more than 1,200 miles later, alive and still having maintained the $8,000 to $10,000 needed to pay a coyote? Someone created and assisted this, and the media should be finding out.
