Elected Representatives Hide From Murrieta Immigration Showdown

I was asked why people in Murrieta hate the migrants trying to come to the United States for a better life, and why we are not angry with the federal government instead. I responded that we are not angry, nor do we feel hate towards the people being treated as cattle by the federal government for a political agenda.

The citizens of Murrieta, who have been protesting against illegal aliens being shipped into our city in massive numbers, feel for those people on the buses and we blame Washington, including our representatives, for the problem. The White House has been encouraging the Central Americans and South Americans to cross the border and enter our country. Promises have been made. Opportunities are to be had. Deportation is statistically unlikely. The border is wide open.

Great article. Where are our ‘leaders’? Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez has stepped up, but there’s crickets echoing in the hills.

meanwhile, we have this:

organized by outside groups to come to Murrieta to disrupt.

“Fernando Romero, coordinator for the Justice for Immigrants Coalition of Inland Southern California, who helped organize Wednesday night’s rally in Murrieta... David Buenrostro, with the Immigrant Youth Coalition... The Rev. Javier Gonzalez, a priest with the Roman Catholic diocese of San Bernardino..”

and the rest of the pro-illegal protestors who swarmed city hall Wednesday nite to support illegal alien women like this one:

“Angel and Elva Rosales, who are from Guatemala, have two children detained in Texas. Their 7-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son are in a shelter, according to the couple, who arrived at the vigil with a 9-month-old baby.

“I’m one of the mothers who at this moment is experiencing this process,” said Elva. “But we know there’s a God that will open hearts.”

These are parents, who were willing to abandon their children, in order to come to the USA to have an anchor baby, and who then put a 7 year old and a 10 year old in the hands of drug cartels to transport them to the USA.

And now she’s waiting for these children to be delivered to her gratis from Texas, compliments of the US Government.

Where did the money come from for these indigent parents to pay the cartels? And why aren’t these parents in jail for felony child endangerment?

Why is it ok, in any world, for parents to abandon children to criminals, and then expect the government of another country to not only rescue them but to then support the entire family for 20 years?
