Decision Regarding Children in Illegal Immigration Cases

The 9th District Court of Appeals out of San Francisco has ruled that children who are found with their parents while attempting to illegally enter the country must be returned to relatives. This is actually based on a 1997 ruling and the new opinion applies the ruling not only to unaccompanied children, as it was previously, but to any children found during this illegal act. There is scrutiny around the opinion saying that it is still unfair because it separates children and parents. What are your thoughts on the topic
