Shame on You, Murrieta, for Blocking Immigrant Detainee Buses
The Los Angeles Times ^ | Thursday, July 3, 2014 | Steve Lopez

Posted on 07/04/2014 6:19:38 PM PDT by kristinn

Yeah, I know. Illegal means illegal. Thanks for clarifying. And your community has its own challenges without detained immigrants arriving by the busload and no clear plan as to what will become of them. That’s all fair comment.

But still, shame on those of you with bulging veins, clenched fists and hot-blooded hatred.

Juxtaposed against the simplistic and ugly “go back home” rhetoric spouted in the streets of Murrieta this week are the horrific realities of some of the human beings – women and children, no less – aboard those buses.

SNIP

And let’s not forget that the influx of immigrants is no accident. The reasons for Central American and Mexican economic and social distress are complex and many, but the United States is a historic partner in the failures of that region of the world. We’ve supported corrupt and oppressive regimes for our own economic gain and we’ve priced foreign farmers out of business by subsidizing American agriculture.

And then there’s the insatiable American hunger for drugs -- one of the more destabilizing forces south of our borders.

Standing in the street screaming at buses is, to a degree, blaming the victims of our own policies and failings...

This meme was being pimped mercilessly by NBC Evening News tonight.

Only HATERS would stand in the way of these “poor children who have gone through hell to get here!”

I think Senor Steve Lopez should take five of these hurting souls into his home. Feed them, get them medical care, educate them.

Talk’s cheap, Steve.

Thanks, Mr. LOPEZ.

I agree with one thing, our illegal drug culture is causing a lot of problems down there. Our war on drugs does not help either. Maybe we should take all the aid we give to muzzie countries and invest it in central and south America.

But we, the LA Times, have the right to tell you what to do because people like you died giving us the freedoms to do so.

I have no problem with sanctuary households or sanctuary churches helping, adopting or assisting foreign children or young adults - as long as it’s voluntary.

It isn’t.

Obama wants chaos in America. He’s making it happen.

He intends to push citizens as much as possible with employment statistic lies and other Cloward-Piven strategies designed to disenfranchise the middle-class while bringing in illegal Democrat voters for one more election cycle.

It has nothing to do with the children who are being used as pawns, quite immorally.

It is standing up to the federal government and does not reflect animosity to children being used for political gain.

Shame on YOU Steve Lopez for supporting such exploitation of and harm to these poor children.

Up yours Lopez. I wish the people of Ventura had stood up like the people of Murrieta did. Jerry Brown would have picked up the phone then, and told the Party to get them the ‘H’ outta here like I’m certain he did when Murrieta people didn’t roll over.

Yes I’m surmising, but it’s a good bet he did quell the chaos in Murrieta by getting rid of the problem for the upcoming election. He likes to keep quiet (Heard from Jerry recently) until the last weeks before an election, and then jump on the soap box denouncing straw men, and all sorts of imaginary boogers without touching a single issue, and people fall for it every time.

“Only HATERS would stand in the way of these “poor children who have gone through hell to get here!””

I would be willing to bet that if you asked liberals and conservatives to personally take in and care for one or more of these children you would get FAR more conservatives than you would liberals who would do it.

The real haters are liberal/progressive. The most intolerant, bigoted, selfish people on the face of the earth.

There are no detained immigrants..

there are just illegal aliens..

And the anti-immigration crowd are the illegal aliens already here and their enablers...

The American citizens of Murrieta are not anti-immigration..

they are pro-immigration and they want all who want to come to the US to IMMIGRATE

and not just sneak in like burglars...

Steve Lopez is guilty of supporting human trafficking and all of the ills and misery that result from it. I blame Steve Lopez for every unfortunate would-be illegal alien who has gotten raped or killed or forced into sexual or economic slavery. And I blame him for every hard-working minority, either American born or legal immigrant, who has a lousy life because they can not earn a decent paycheck with all of the competition from illegal aliens. All for what? So that Steve Lopez or some of his rich Democrat friends can get cheap lawn work, household servants, pool cleaners or golf caddies?

How can a contributor to so many human rights violations not be held accountable for his despicable actions? Doesn’t he even have even a smidgen of decency and intellect to reflect on his ugly crimes? How can he live with his disgusting self? Such a monster should not be permitted to roam around like a free man, rather he should be punished for his many sins.
