This news story from Chicage is getting a lot of attention: Mom Investigated by Cops, Children's Services for Letting 8-Year-Old Walk Dog Alone.
Some observers call children like these, "free range kids," because their parents trust that whatever they learn from treks outdoors will far outweigh any risk to the child. But here's the thing I believe is noteworthy about this. While parents in the U.S. are expected to hoover like helicopters over their children at the risk of being hauled in as bad parents, parents South of the border release their kids to cartel members, smugglers, and coyotes to travel otherwise unaccompanied across the U.S. border.
The left is willing to ignore that particular bit of parental negligence and use the kids as pawns in an attack on those who want strong borders. And they are winning!
