Demonstrators picket before the possible arrival of undocumented migrants who may be processed at the Murrieta Border Patrol Station in Murrieta, CaliforniaA top U.S. official said on Sunday the U.S. border is not open to illegal entry into the country, but acknowledged the government does need to be sensitive to the tens of thousands of migrant children flowing into detention centers. “We have to do right by the children, but at the end of the day, our border is not open to illegal migration and we will stem the tide,” Jeh Johnson, the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. Johnson said that the government administers deportation proceedings to illegal migrants seized at the border, including children. “We are looking at ways to create additional options for dealing with the children, in particular, consistent with our laws and our values,” Johnson said.
