Gov. Bobby Jindal spent several hours at the Texas-Mexico border Monday (Aug. 3), using the opportunity to articulate his positions on illegal immigration, the crisis involving unaccompanied minors and border control.
Here are five observations about Jindal's trip-related statements on the child immigration crisis brewing at the Texas border:
Jindal wants to deport most of the unaccompanied immigrant children and teenagers who have crossed into the United States.
The governor said it was important that immigrants and the federal government follow the law, which, in this case, means the minors who have crossed into the country illegally should be deported.
Jindal said the children -- who have mostly come from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras -- should be sent back to their families in their home countries.
