Suburban Californians Fight the Feds

California suburbanites are engaged in a fight with the federal government over its attempt to turn a residential building into a detention center for illegal-immigrant children.

The Department of Health and Human Services submitted an application to the city of Escondido’s Planning Commission to use a 35,200 square-foot facility to house almost 100 children. On Tuesday night in this suburb of San Diego, the city commission held a hearing to review the request and unanimously voted to oppose the application. Several hundred people filled the chamber hall to make their voices heard, and people at the meeting say the overwhelming majority opposed the application. The standing-room-only crowd spilled over into an adjacent room and nearby hallways, and onto the grass outside.

Escondido suburbanites revealed as racists and NIMBY's. It's okay to leave them in AZ apparently. I'm still thinkin' Jan Brewer needs to bus them to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in d.c. D.C. does stand for detention center doesn't it? I'm sure those great humanitarians living there would be more than happy to invite them in.

The Escondido area received thousands of boat people during the fall of Vietnam. It has already happened in their “back yard” once.

Charley Rangel’s district is becoming latino. Another few busloads should wrap it up for Rangel.

Short of militarizing the border and putting troops into Mexico to prevent border crossings..our borders are meaningless. Any women with kids, or kids alone, that make it across get to stay indefinitely. Mexican men get deported and can try again, but women and children get a pass. Now all of Latin America knows that and they will be coming in hordes.

The sympathy for illegals ends when dimwitted Leftists can actually see the problem as an object lesson in their own town.

However, the fact that the entire country will be destroyed if we let people in during a period of high unemployment is lost on them otherwise.

“Every one of those cities has at least some conservatives in them”.

California has a number of conservatives, too. Where are you when
some Cali hating FReepers come after all of California? I hope you
do remind them that there are some conservatives here like us.

I don’t think liberals will ever get the message if all we do is send
the fence hoppers “HOME”.

Outside of two urban corridors - Marin to San Jose, San Fernando to Santa Ana - Californians are no more liberal than the rest of the country.

I have stood up to the California bashers here many times here, reminding them that the founder of this site is from California.

I hate American liberals, too, but I don’t think any American should have to put up with illegals being put in their neighborhoods. Now the liberals’ kids will be beaten up in their schools. It’s not their fault their parents are liberals.

Innocent people in those cities will be attacked by illegal gang members or hit by unlicensed, uninsured illegal drivers. Innocent people in those cities will lose their local emergency rooms. There’ll be diseases. And on and on.

I want illegals GONE more than I want to “send some message” to liberals.

Unfortunately no. In our neighborhood chickens and pigs were backyard animals for awhile.

Escondido is 50% hispanic (mostly Mexican) and 40% white. Add Guatamalan, San Salvador and Honduran gangs to the existing Mexican gang territory and you’re gonna have long-term fireworks.

Going back to the early 1800’s forceable expansion of Mexico, there exists a hatred/rivalry between Central American countries and Mexico.

If DHS is dumping C.A. nationals into areas with a large established Mexican population in the belief that all hispanics are the same and all will get along, they are not only racist simpletons, they are incredibly short-sighted on the explosive effects of such a sudden mix, with the hapless 40% smack dab in the middle of the crossfire.

Tell that to the haters who think ALL Californians march in liberal
lockstep. I know the score here in our Golden State.

Nice sentiment but if don’t take an opportunity to rub
liberal noses in the stench piles they create the they
will never slow their roll.

I actually suggested that wealthy conservatives and right leaning
organizations create numerous boarding schools for the young migrant
Cent Amer illegals. They would get an old fashioned pro American
education which they could take back to their families. See how
Fast the liberals flip on amnesty and the rest of it.

A Hollywood director and his son were killed by an illegal alien driver. If that was not enough to get the liberals to flip on amnesty, nothing will be. Liberals will never change or “learn their lesson.”

You know how hard core liberals view the death of a man and his
son at the hands of an illegal alien? They would ask if the deceased
would be any less dead if they died at the hands of a white out of
work drug addict porn star from San Fernando Valley.

Look, you and I aren’t going to get what we really want. Masses of
illegals are not going to cross the border heading south. But let us
get something out of the deal. They say a converted conservative
is a liberal who got mugged. If the liberals have to live with what
they have wrought they would have an opportunity to adjust their
attitudes.
