Bottom line: there is a long established process to applying for asylum in the United States. The process does not include arriving at our border in the thousands and then storming the barrier carrying the flag of a foreign nation, pelting Border Patrol with rocks and bottles and demanding – anything.
I have a heart and I love my country – I wish that all could have been born here – but this country does not owe anyone anywhere the ‘right’ to come here.
I would not endanger my children, healthy or otherwise, by traveling by foot with thousands of people unknown to me and expose them to all the possible hazards and injuries of such a trek. If I had decided that such a trek was the only way to save my life and my children’s lives, I would not allow ‘organizers’ to put me and my children in the front line at the point of possible physical harm such we have seen at the border of the United States.
Go home; the Mexican government has graciously agreed to either fly you home or send you home in some other conveyance; apply for asylum the approved way; we will welcome you.
