Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar has offered his advice to the Obama administration about where to house the tens of thousands of undocumented immigrant children flowing over his state's borders: Send them home.

"My top three suggestions for shelter locations are as follows: San Salvador, El Salvador; Guatemala City, Guatemala; and Tegucigalpa, Honduras," Gosar wrote in a letter to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, according to The Hill.

In his letter, he noted a report by the House Homeland Security Committee that found that more than 92 percent of the estimated 52,000 children who have crossed into the United States since October came from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

Gosar said other options include sending the children to the specific towns where the illegal immigrants originally left, as well as to the Ministries of Health in the Central American countries he named.

He also said that while he appreciated that FEMA solicited the opinion of Congress on the situation, "This tragedy is entirely self-imposed. Our border security is laughable."

Gosar specifically blamed President Barack Obama for the crisis.

Obama "continually speaks of acting on his own to allow for amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants, giving hope and motive to millions more to make such a treacherous journey in order to break United States law," he wrote.

Obama announced earlier this week that he would use his executive authority to act on the immigration crisis, blaming Congress for its failure to take action.
