    You may want to do some research on the UN refugee program. If you had you would see a few things. One this is exactly the type if mission they are charged with caring out. Two get hey do assist with finding and other services to assist the country were the refugees are fleeing too and three they can help disperese the bird on by sending refugees to other host countries so one country does not get over burdened.

    The current issues of waves of illegal aliens coming into the USA doesn't effect the UN, so basically is none of their business. They are pushing a dictate that we should simply allow all of these people to stay because of South American violence in their homelands. If that's how they feel, then the UN should provide funds to take care of them.

    They are coming here with no education, no skills and most don't speak any English. As such, they immediately become welfare burdens to local governments of wherever ICE sends them. The local social, school and medical institutions are also being overwhelmed.

    Even the president of Honduras wants them to stay in the U.S.. Why? Because when they finally find work (competing with citizen unemployment), they send part of their wages back to their home countries, which of course helps that economy at the expense of not having that money recirculated in the USA, where the money is earned. It then slows the U.S. economy. Had a citizen had that same job, all their wages would be spent and used in the USA, bolstering the local and federal economies.

    the fact there is a major humanitarian crisis effecting thousands of kids and the UN is trying to address the issues they face is a good reason to close the UN? The same old talking points are not really gong to work with this issue, it is a little to complex for simple sound bits.

    This is just another good reason to close the UN headquarters on our soil and send all those people home. Revoke all their visas and give them 30 days to leave the USA. Also quit giving them money for anything.
