Doggett Calls for Action on Immigrant Kids

By Bill O'Neil

Something has to be done on both sides of the border--the reaction from Congressman Lloyd Doggett after seeing the pictures of undocumented immigrant children crowded in to holding facilities in the United States. 

"Really a humanitarian crisis" the Congressman told 550 KTSA News when asked for his reaction to the images, adding the time to take action is clearly here. 

"We need to work to try wherever possible to reunite children with their families, to find foster families" the Congressman said, pointing to the actions ttaken by some San Antonio charities in helping immigrant children in need. 

The Congressman said he has questions about what he is seeing in the photos--but also said the situation is the result of continuing economic questions and strife in Central American countries such as Guatemla and El Salvador.
