President Obama says tens of thousands of Central American children flooding into the U.S. along the southern border have created a “humanitarian crisis,” and he appealed directly to parents to stop sending kids north.

“Our message absolutely is don't send your children unaccompanied, on trains or through a bunch of smugglers,” Obama told ABC’s Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview here. “We don't even know how many of these kids don't make it, and may have been waylaid into sex trafficking or killed because they fell off a train.

“Do not send your children to the borders,” he said. “If they do make it, they'll get sent back. More importantly, they may not make it.”

More of Stephanopoulos’ interview with the president will air on “Good Morning America” tomorrow and on “This Week” Sunday morning.

The Department of Homeland Security says more than 52,000 unaccompanied minors have been detained along the U.S. border with Mexico this fiscal year. In addition, authorities have apprehended 39,000 adults with small children. The numbers reflect a significant uptick over last year, when just 24,000 unaccompanied minors were apprehended. The majority in the surge hail from Central American countries, and a disproportionate number are young women and under age 13, officials say.

Woo-Hoo! Send a few thousand home in C-17s and C-5s and they might believe his words have more meaning than, "Yes, I will have fries and a shake with that."

Tough talk from someone that doesn't mean it and they know it.

Maybe if ebola breaks out this empty suit might do something.

Only if he and his family are exposed, but I hope that wouldn't be the case.
