Obama’s unaccompanied minors problem/scandal

Occasionally I still see liberals lashing GW Bush for the failures of Louisiana's Democratic governor and New Orleans' Democratic mayor after the Katrina hurricane. Until the present administration, the federal government wasn't allowed to barge in without invitation. Also, in the recovery, Louisiana had so many arcane and restrictive regulations to protect their local businesses, it was virtually impossible for private contractors to get across state lines with aid quickly. However, apply that to the complete FAIL of the federal government to take care of the unaccompanied children from Central America streaming across the boarder at the President's invitation. The government actually advertised for service providers 6 months before the crisis, and still couldn't keep vulnerable children out of crowded camps and is dumping them on unprepared state and local governments.
