  1. What a huge waste of money based on false assertions! If you want to educate children, call it "Education". Pre-School does not teach the skills needed for future employment. The mayor and his team need to get a different set of eyes and ears on the ground. Jobs are the answer, and unless you are proposing that all Black Men living in Indianapolis need to relocate to China, India, Vietnam, South America, Mexico, or Western Europe, if they want a job, someone needs to know that young Black Men see no future without a job. I think the mayor is being grossly mislead, and he needs to find folks with real answers or his problems are only going to get worse.

  2. How is preschool going to help these young Black men?Preschoolers are not robbing and killing people. Create jobs and programs to help 18 to 25 year old men, particularly Black men. That is the fix. Preschool?!?! That won't help the crime problem at all. Put 50 million into job programs for Black men in Indy.

  3. "Freedom and Flexibility" means screw the poor

  4. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  5. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.
