Rep. Ben Ray Luján attempted to draw attention to the human aspect of the border crisis by recounting reports of kidnapped, beaten, and killed children and journalists. In Honduras, a child was being recruited by a local gang. When the parents got involved, the gang killed the entire family and used them as a scapegoat. After listening to Luján, Obama was sympathetic towards the Democratic response to the situation. However, he continued to insist that Congress make changes to a law allowing for speedier deportation of children, which could apprehend up to 90,000. The Democrats have come to a consensus that the most humane plan would involve quickening the immigration cases by hiring more judges and prioritizing these cases.
