I know that many people feel compassion for the illegal children coming into our country from Mexico. That is the point. I believe this is an orchestrated “humanitarian” crisis that has been in the works for some time. If we had a swarm of adults crossing the border, the anger of Americans would be far more confrontational. If you replace those adults with children, what happens? People pause & feel compassion. “They’re children! They are innocent!” Hitler used children too for this very reason.
NOT to say we shouldn’t feel compassion for the smallest of these children who have had no say in where they are sent, but please remember we have OUR own children to feel compassion for. We are responsible for our children first. If you read many of the news stories about these illegal children, you will read that many of them don’t even want to be here. They want to go home. They are asking for their parents & families. These children are being used for political purposes & THAT is sad. BUT, we cannot lose sight of the fact that we have a Constitution. We have rules and laws in this country that have been severely disregarded by this administration.
OUR country and therefore OUR children are being threatened with disease. TB, lice, scabies & who knows what else? Not to mention public schools are preparing for the influx of these illegal children in the Fall. In a public school system that is already being crippled by Common Core, low test scores and in many areas a large portion of the school is Spanish speaking. What will happen now? Will the public school system suffer even more? Of course it will. What about the outbreak of disease that is resistant to the drugs we have? We need to be concerned for OUR children at this point. That is our duty.
Please also remember that many of these “children” are gang thugs. One border patrol agent said that he clearly had a tattooed, 25 year old thug illegal he was processing, but the thug insisted he was only 17, therefore a minor. There are no papers, no documentation at all… so the agent’s “hands were tied”. This is what is coming into our country as well. And don’t forget the people from countries other than Mexico. There is the terrorist element to this story too. Many, many dangers are crossing our borders daily in droves. The other danger is that our own government is gleefully allowing it to happen. What happens when no one will uphold the law any longer? Chaos.
This is a very complex problem that should NEVER have happened in the first place. If our LAWS were in effect, this wouldn’t be happening. Sadly it IS happening and it is a travesty.
