These children are crossing under the direction and force of others. There are countless videos on the web with Al-Qaeda "leaders" proclaiming how they will send anthrax across and under the US-Mexican border. I hope the children can find love here for what ever amount of time. There is much sad truth in the many painful alternatives. But this pain is miniscule compared to the wishes of our enemies who school there children to hate.
Ironside, Ironside, Ironside...will you quit frothing at the mouth about 'Communist' conspiracies" and think about what the real answer might be here?????
Why are these people sending their children here? Well, first and foremost it is because they have heard, as have almost every other nations people, that our nation's Statue of Liberty proclaims. I'm sure you are familiar with it, Ironsides.
The Statue of Liberty inscription reads: "Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free; The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the homeless,Tempest-tossed to me I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
Why else are they coming here? Well, my friend, the United States government has already deported over 100,000 criminals, and violent criminals at that, back to their Central American homelands.
They, have unleashed another wave of violent crime in those countries. United Nations' statistics show that these countries have becoming some of the most dangerous in the world. Yes, the parents of many of these children are scared stiff.
In fact, a recent report by the UNHCR entitled "Children on the Run" stated very clearly that these children are indeed refugees and would be in "extreme danger" if returned to their countries.
It seems these Central American gangs have been targeting young children, especially females, in their attacks, not only murdering them but prostituting them and more.
So, I ask, if you were there, and your children were being targeted, wouldnt you be willing to send them to what many people in other nations believe to be the only truly safe place in the Western Hemisphere?? I believe you would!
Are there children being sent across for other reasons? I'm sure there are. Am I worried about the influx of all these juvenile refugees and the effect/affect their presence may have on our nations and our states already stretched thin welfare and assistance budgets? Yes, I am.
Do I see this as a new assault on America launches by Islamic Jihadist organizations? No! Is there a possibility that individual children may be sent over with some nefarious instructions to carry out against our country?
Yes, and I suspect many of those enter legally with all the appropriate paperwork and lots of money so they can blend right in with our very diverse populations and then begin their plans....if they exist, and if they have them.
Personally, I don't think these children are comin g here for any reason other than desperation and hope....as they have been for decades, my friends, just with their entire families and not in such away to attract the attention of the press....which is incredibly short-sighted and weak-minded...like a big fish chasing schools of smaller fish.
Those schools, "22" are the only ones involved here...
Definitely not a new assault. I know many Central American families who do "school" in love, more so than hate. Believing what you've said to be true of the ones involved here. Is exactly why I feel these children are crossing under the direction and force of others. Even a mama cow will follow her calf across a river. Abandoning children against such odds is NOT among the actions of the Central American people I know.
Ironside has it right when he says that the South American countries that are causing this problem have the responsibility to clean up their own homelands.
The people of these countries cannot be allowed to deny their obligation to the children that they have chosen to bring into the world by dumping them on America’s doorstep in the expectation that, under pressure of compassion, strangers will take over their parental responsibilities.
If America does not make this clear by sending all of these people back to their home countries then there is nothing to stop this flood of illegal aliens from becoming a deluge that could overwhelm this country.
When the hordes of other lands are permitted to come here, as is the case daily; when ignorance, poverty, crime is allowed to land upon our shores and be transformed, hardly without ceremony, and with no time to learn the nature of our institutions, into what is called the “American’ citizens-when these things are done, it is time that good men lifted their arms and sounded their voices against the abomination.
They are coming in such numbers and we are unable adequately to take care of them…It simply amounts to unrestricted and indiscriminate dumping into this country of people of every character and description…If there were in existence a ship that could hold three million human beings, then three million Jews of Poland would board to escape to America.
Oops, I neglected to include the sources of those quotes!
First quote: The Know-Nothing: And American Crusader, published by the Nativist Press, 15 July 1854
Second quote: Report of the U.S. House Committee on Immigration and Naturalization (accompanying H.R. 14461), 6 December 1920
"If you are not with us, you are against us" is probably one of the stupidest, ethnocentric, jingoistic quotes ever.
Even if you are my friend, or I yours, I will never agree with you all the time. Nor will I "be with you" if you are wrong in my opinion.
