Really....if it costs between 5 and 10 thousand per kid to get them from Central America to North America, I have to ask where these kids and their families came up with that amount of money. Those numbers amount to several years of income? http://www.averagesalarysurvey.com/article/average-salary-in-honduras/04122015.aspx You'd think if they, the parents, could raise that kind of money, they'd simply invest in a security fence and armed guards to protect their home and family? At least they'd have money left over for a good dinner out every month and a DirectTV subscription. Just thinking out loud!
