We keep hearing that these “children” are coming to our border due to the terrible war like conditions that have suddenly become critical despite the fact that far fewer came from these areas during actual civil wars. There’s no doubt that many of these countries are very dangerous. I have in-laws that have connections back to El Salvador and I know for a fact that it is a very dangerous place to live.
Let’s look at this one train. This high definition picture is easily found all over the internet. I zoomed in on every section of the picture. I calculated that there were no more than ten percent obvious children. I don’t think males in their upper teens can be clearly differentiated from males in their early twenties. If you define childhood ending at 18, maybe that 5 percent moves to 15% if you make every full size male that COULD be under 20 a “child.” Of course we could use the Obamacare definition of age 26. Assuming these “kids” will be on Obamacare before long, then those that could be 26 or younger could reach 25%.
You make the estimates. Let me know what you think!
