Immigrant children bringing out the worst in some Americans (He means us, of course)
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram ^ | July 12, 2014 | Bob Ray Sanders

Posted on 07/12/2014 5:24:24 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country.

A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better.

Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their country of origin.

There have been some ugly scenes reminiscent of the days when racist mobs in the 1960s attacked young “freedom riders” on their buses or at lunch counters in the South. The viciousness — indeed hatred — demonstrated in some of these anti-immigrant protests is painful to watch.

And while I assume, hope and pray that the most vile individuals represent a minority, I also know that they are being egged on by some of our most influential political leaders and social commentators, who seem to care more about their own power than they do anything or anyone else, especially some poor, frightened child from a distressed country who is looking for refuge.

I know that there are plenty of people in Texas and across the nation who care about these kids and their families. We’ve seen an outpouring of people in the Dallas-Fort Worth area stepping up, ready to help....

Go pick up thousands of dirty, diseased “others” and drop them into any non-European country in the world (especially African nations) and you will see “ugly”. It will the machete-wielding kind of ugly. Why do they think refugees come here anyway? We don’t cut their heads off and rape their daughters!

>>Let the people see these “children”.

They’re like the “chillens” who make up the bulk of the “children killed by gunfire” statistics. They include anyone up to the age of 25 and include those killed by cops during crimes and by gang violence. Take those people out of the population and guns become safer than pacifiers for children.

Your morality costs you nothing and gives the opportunity to act like an ass, with no real costs to you.

Why don’t you get on your moral high horse and giddy up on down to the nearest center and bring a family home which you?

these are not immigrant children. The number of real children is few compared to the older teens and young adult coming in droves. by older teens I mean able to vote in a few months. If they had that many little kids they would let us see them. they are sneaking them all over the country..they will not be sent back.

If you really cared about these kids, you would have helped them before they made a perilous journey on the death train through Mexico. By not sending them back, you are only encouraging more of them to travel through land controlled by Mexican drug cartels. What are you doing right now for the people living in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras ?

Exactly.

The fact that cellphones and recording devices are not allowed in to the holding areas is a huge signal that there is something that they don’t want let out.....

like maybe a large percentage of these “children” are young men 14 to 18 years old....

And many have highly contagious diseases...

We are being invaded on our southern border. Our commander in chief is not ordering our military to protect us.

Our government has the primary responsibility to protect our borders and our citizens. Our government is not doing this.

We need a new government.

I blame the republicans. They control the House and they are doing NOTHING.

The more a few facts leak out, the smaller the percentage of actual ‘children’ becomes. I bet kids say, fourteen and under, barely make up 1/3 of these illegal entrants. But they do make up about 90% of the pictures or video released so far.

After reading your best money you ever made was as human resources for a temp agency. Temps in my state are purely slave labor, one step up from illegals. I’ve worked in my state for many years, I see where your ilk is coming from. My last temp job in my state the principle told me what my compamy was making off me. Try 36% above my wages with zero benefits and after humpimg my ass and even teaching myself statistics and some young engineers, I see some minority co-op getting a direct job with benefits. We know how it works in the real world now. When one of the greatest aerospace designers of his generation is “catching” diapers on a experimental high speed packaging line at 59 years old says it all. What’s really disturbing was I was a packaging designer in the past too.

I can not wait for the next few years as all the local schools will not have one open seat. Then they go to split shifts or three shifts a day. And the property tax on every home will double or triple, that will be great. And all your son will get beat up and your daughters knocked up. America what a wonderful place.
