'They Are Children' Campaign Sends Border Kids Positive Messages

Away from the groups of angry protestors outside detention facilities, a letter-writing campaign aims to send the undocumented children at the heart of the immigration border crisis a more positive message.

The “They Are Children” campaign, led by the California Endowment, a private health foundation aimed at expanding health care across the Golden State, is a grassroots initiative working to broadcast a “collective voice of compassion” for the undocumented children coming across the U.S.-Mexico border.

The foundation is calling on people across the country to send letters of support to the undocumented children who are being held in detention facilities while they wait to be processed by immigration officials. “They are Children” is also taking to social media, aiming to expand the reach of its message of compassion online.

“They Are Children” found its genesis among the many people across California and the rest of the U.S. who wanted to sending something to the kids “besides anger, shouting and politics,” according to Daniel Zingale, senior vice president of the California Endowment....

Why aren’t these so called “children” going to more friendly countries in Central America or even to Mexico? Because the only reason they’re coming here is for the freebies and to be rewarded with the opportunity to drag the rest of their families into America. “They Are Children” is aiding and abetting in these crimes.

The same ones who supposedly care about these children are the same ones who want 9 month pregnant women to have the “Right” to kill their babies..guess the compassion depends on what political party those children will be voting for

I have a positive message for the border kids, too.

Baja California is lovely this time of year. You should all go there to stay.

Notice that none of those “welcoming” them, whether it be these people, Hollywood stars, George Will or politicians, are going to be taking any of them into their homes, adopting them or even giving money towards their support.

Here’s a positive message for those ‘children’...

We POSITIVELY don’t want you here. Go home.

We need to start a “campaign” called “Let’s Worry About American Children First”. These “children” (17 to 38 years old) are from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. U.S. taxpayer dollars should not be spent on them. THEY are not OUR problem. Americans really need to wake up and learn that.

They are filth-bug-infected-disease-carrying-foreign-national-INVADERS, sanctioned NOT by the American people, but by that self-proclaimed-queer-king-in-Washington-bedamned-D.C.!!!

They are NOT wanted, desired, nor welcome, and should be turned back at-or-on bayonet point, back across our INTERNATIONAL border!!!!

I think that we should be reimbursed every dollar spent on taking care of another country’s children, either by proportional cuts in foreign aid or tariffs, whatever. I think we need to make it so expensive for these shirkers of their children that they will stop the exodus.

Typical advocacy journalism. The MSM has noticed the polls trending heavily against Obama's plan to fundamentally transform the US into a non-western totalitarian state and have taken it upon themselves to change public opinion.

There isn't enough rope on this continent to deal properly with these scum.

Maybe the Left would be pleased if we sent these illegal "refugees" to the Communist paradise of Cuba instead.

Viva la revolucion!
