Obama's unaccompanied minor aliens

All those unaccompanied alien children we've heard about.

The ones that came across our southern border in recent months, numbering in the tens of thousands.

Now we're starting to hear about their "emotional scars" and the impact on our public school systems.

From the Washington Post:
Ripped from distant worlds, most of the new students speak no English, and some are psychologically scarred from abuse by gangs or smugglers. Reunited with parents or other relatives they barely know, and still grieving for family and friends back home, they may feel depressed and resentful.
The social costs, and the drain on our public resources, brought on by the immigration wave are just beginning.  And, as we speculated a month or two ago, government's secrecy over where these kids were being relocated likely made it impossible for school systems to gear up in advance for the surge of incoming aliens.
