United and American Airlines refuse to transport children back home

Ace of Spades quoting Fox NewsUnited Airlines joined American Airlines in telling the federal government to "immediately refrain" from using its planes to transport children who have been separated from their families who crossed the US-Mexico border.

Like many other US airlines, American has contracts with the federal government that allow authorities to use its planes to provide for certain travel. For example, the company said it has "carried refugees for non-profits and the government."

"We have no desire to be associated with separating families, or worse, to profit from it," the company said in a statement Wednesday. "We have every expectation the government will comply with our request and we thank them for doing so."

Funny thing about contracts, they aren't really supposed to be optional once you have agreed to something. The other funny thing about contracts is that they often have penalty clauses.

Exercise those clauses and use the money to build the wall.
