Skip to comments.Governor Patrick links southwest border crisis to Holocaust

Governor Deval Patrick on Wednesday said he wanted to find a way for Massachusetts to help alleviate the crisis of children seeking to cross the US-Mexico border, avoiding the type of feud with the White House into which other governors have been drawn, and invoking powerful imagery as his motivation.
My inclination is to remember what happened when a shipful of Jewish children tried to come to the United States in 1939 and the United States turned them away, and many of them went to their deaths in Nazi concentration camps, Patrick said when a reporter asked how he viewed the border crisis. I think we are a bigger-hearted people than that as Americans, and certainly as residents of Massachusetts.
He added, Now getting from there to a practical solution, I have not done yet. Im trying to think that through.
Patrick said his immediate challenge was finding where in Massachusetts to house the children as the federal government, which he said would pay for the assistance, determines how to handle the nearly 60,000 children estimated to have migrated from Central America.
The message from the federal government, Patrick said, was essentially: What can you do if anything to help shelter these children while theyre being processed?
Estimates for how many children Massachusetts could be asked to shelter, he said, had not yet arrived.
Theyre not saying and havent asked that we take a certain number, Patrick said.
His invocation of the Holocaust appears to correspond to the story of the St. Louis, a ship that sailed from Germany in the spring of 1939 carrying roughly 900 Jewish refugees. The ship was forced to return to Europe, where more than a quarter are known to have died in the Holocaust, according to the United State Holocaust Memorial Museum.

What a freakin’ moron! This guy needs to be in a padded room for his own safety. He may hurt himself.
Not even CLOSE.
Countdown until prominent Jewish group shouts him down... 3, 2, 1, ...
Or, I should say, shoots, not shouts.
Proof that a POLITICIAN will say just about anything in an attempt to strengthen their silly a$$ LIBERAL POV.
DemocRATS are all crazier than hell. They know there is a good possibility that their communist utopia may be falling apart. Barry is juggling his ass off right now with all of his scandals, the lastest being the Obama Southern Border Invasion of 2014. (OSBI 2014).
Patrick Leahy didn’t want patrick to feel like the only idiot in the room.
Wonder who wrote his speech?
Although, as a Muppet, Deavl must feel uncomfortable with someone’s arm jammed up his posterior, and it must be unnerving for him to have his lips start moving involuntarily...
yes, we turned them away. So did Cuba and Canada. Did we know that they would return to Hamburg? Of course not. We also deported 2 million Mexicans, closed all immigration, and then instituted very strict quotas and qualifications for the trickle of immigrants that were let in. I guess it’s easy to forget that America was struggling through The Great Depression at the time, and fighting for it’s own existence.
Can this asshat be any more stupid? Holy cow pies.
Each one of these illegal minors is costing us about $200 per day. That’s $73,000 per year. Tell her she should have to pay for them. That should pull on he purse strings more than her heart strings.
And most aren’t minors. Minors are being used by the media to pull on her heart strings.
First of all, over the years, many of these true refugees returned to thank the people of Oswego, and as a History student in college I interviewed a few and to compare what they went through to illegally crossing the border is ABSURD and borderline antisemitic, Govt Patrick!
Secondly, while in this case I think it was deserving and the right thing to do— let these Jewish refugees stay, it just goes to show once we let people in they will never be sent back. Deal with the gangs in Central America if you must, but don't import their future members here and call them refugees! (I know not all but I don't know who, so I'm willing to send them home and help to make that home country a bit safer on a limited basis.)
What is frightening there are people in the U.S. ignorant enough to buy these lies from government. Very disturbing.
However even worse, I'm convinced the others supporting this type of country killing propaganda are in on the con-job to literally destroy the once sovereign united America. To do what those in government are doing to us and our country, they must severely hate America and have contempt everything it once stood for.
so, we’re talking about a guy we can all agree, with absolute certainty, he believes in the phony separation of church and state, and i’m sure believes religion should play zero part in government. but, when asked once about how we should treat illegals, he said he would follow scripture.
so pretty much, any normal discussion about what he thinks is pretty much worthless.
The haters are in panick mode. The kingdom is crashing on them.
Hey, Gov. ....Just send all those younguns to Provincetown. Many would be welcomed with open arms and the MS-13 bunch would find a welcome group of buyers.
So does this mean we’re supposed to carpet bomb Tegucigalpa and San Salvador?
Then we obviously need to declare war on ALL those counties, invade them and wipe out everyone in their govts. Then set up a rebuilding program like done for Germany post 1945.
You want to make parallels? Let’s go there with the logic.
The Governor is not an American, but a Neoeuropan.
His wordf carry no weight
Funny he doesn’t mention the planes of these young “refugees” who have already landed in the suburbs of Boston. Where are those kids?
I live in a small town in Ma. Up the street there are some empty military houses owned by the Coast Guard. I told my wife last night to get used to locking the house and our cars. We are about to get about a hundred new neighbors that can’t speak a word of English. And get used to the sound of the roosters in the morning.
One would hope...
Can you imagine the adulation the guy would get throughout eternity, if something did happen to him? Tell me that wouldn’t frost you in perpetuity.
You know, this goes with the game plan that has been touched on here, moving the underprivileged into middle class neighborhoods. They’ll do anything they can to destroy anything decent in this nation.
Our school system is hanging on a thread and they will be dumping around 50 kids into the system, even my neighbor who is a teacher in town knows this is going to be a cluster eff.
I had to give up sending my kids to public school in the early 1980s, because they were being ordered to sit in the back and read while the teachers taught the rest of the class English.
You’re very lucky it’s only 50, believe me.
I mean Patrick, and not literal shooting as with a gun or arrow, but outlines the whole sad litany of the Holocaust once more and shows Patrick up to be foolish. He’s just asking for that.
Oh, DO send in the clowns, Barack.
I agree. Sorry to have moved this off to Obama on you.
