Almost everything we are told about illegal immigration is both a lie and amoral.
Sometime around 1212, mystics in Europe cooked up the idea that kids could part the seas, reach the Holy Land, reclaim Jerusalem, and convert the infidel Muslims. Thousands of children in Northern Europe flocked to the Mediterranean in response to such rumors, but when they reached the shore, the seas would not part, and many of them died as they scattered home in hunger.
We are witnessing a sort of childrens crusade on our own southern border. Thousands of young, poor would-be immigrants 90,000 this year alone have swarmed across the border, the logical fruition of the entire cynical approach of the Obama administration toward illegal immigration. (snip)
What a sad bunch we have become. Add them all up: a demagogic president at war with the Constitution and eager to nullify existing law for partisan purposes; the conniving employer who wants cheap labor to drive down the cost of doing business as he praises the free market; the scheming Mexican government in need of remittances and apparently desirous to have fewer of the poor, indigenous people of Oaxaca; the racialist identity activists who in projection call everyone else racist; the calculating Democratic politician eager to have more impoverished constituents who need him to give them stuff; the bankrupt educationalists who dreamed up ethnic-studies classes that would retard integration and assimilation.

The same thought crossed my mind the other day.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.—Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

George W. Bush did this. Obama was merely following suit.
Bush made it clear that he had no intention of securing the Mexican Border or enforcing U.S. immigration laws--in violation of his duty and his oath of office to enforce U.S. laws.
It was when I came to this grim realization that I became utterly disenchanted with G. W. Bush. Before this, I had been one of his most enthusiastic and loyal supporters. After this, I understood more and more what a failure his administration had been, e.g. he spent more of the workers' money than any President since Lyndon Johnson.
...not the least of which is retribution for the Yanqui seizure of Texas by the same method.
Cool, Vic! Well said.
But the twain will meet. And sooner than the techies and metrosexuals think...
"What a sad bunch we have become."
Weep for the men who walked directly into machine-gun fire on the beaches of Normandy--whose spoiled brats drove America into bankrupty, decadence, and national suicide.
The Children’s Crusade of the 1200s involved about 30,000 children and adults and many of them starved or were carted off and sold into slavery in Tunisia and North Africa.
This Immigrant Children’s Horde is already 90,000. It’s becoming a problem.
Yes. And completely according to the plan of the anti-America terrorists pulling 0bama's strings. As hinckleybuzzard so aptly put above ...
"... this whole absurdity is deliberate, designed to present the Congress with a fact on the ground that would enable the open borders crowd to demagogue the issue."
The Children’s Crusade wasn’t launched by cynics.
The NEW one most certainly has been which is the point of the article. Compare and CONTRAST.
Actually, most of the children in the Children’s Crusade ended up being sold as slaves to the Turkish Muslims and Arab Muslims. Not a nice ending for their travels.
When your goal is to profit from crisis, any crisis, this happens.
Obama admin ONLY typifies this.
