Title: Geraldo Rivera: Scare Tactics, Public Hysteria Only Deepen Immigration Crisis
President Obama is right to call the surge a humanitarian crisis, one he must bear part of the blame in creating by not understanding how his message of compassion toward earlier waves of immigrant children was being misconstrued in the civil anarchy of Central America. He should have spotted this trend a year ago and moved to counter the misinformation being spread by immigrant smugglers and local media that undocumented, unaccompanied minors would be welcome, if only they could make it across.
Still, these children cannot now be deported cavalierly back to those home countries they have risked life and limb to flee. All must be granted full, fair hearings to determine whether they deserve refugee-status and are therefore able to stay in this country for fear they will be victimized if deported back. Those refugee laws should be liberally applied in deference to our tradition of compassion toward the young and needy. The dysfunctional governments of their home countries must also be held accountable for the moral and financial burden the children are placing on the United States.
I merely make the point that the arrival at our doorstep of 57,500 children from October 2013 through June 2014, while alarming, is not an existential crisis for the United States. We could feed every poor child in Central America with the excess food we toss into our dumpsters. Sponsors are being found to care and supervise youngsters whove recently arrived.
Whatever happens with the kids, or those thousands who will surely follow, the Republic will survive.

You pay for it Jerry. I am tired of footing the bill for other people. I have enough on my plate to worry about people who hate us anyway.
Oh man Jerry must be REALLY trying to get into some strange, young strange.
And jerry wants to take your money by force to do it
We are $17 trillion in debt
That makes us one of the poorest countries on Earth
They should give us foreign aid
Half of them are probably his kids anyway
Central America could also feed every child in Central America, too.
If it weren’t for the massive political corruption.
(And do-gooder libs trying to save the spineless whining monkey, or somesuch)
All we have to do is feed these kids the ‘special diet’ that Michelle Obama is trying to enforce on American children, and they will all run screaming back to South America.
Somebody tell Jerry that we don’t feed all the poor children in America much less branch out to every third world chithole.
Off of what Geraldo? The cash you found in Al Capone's vault?
Newsflash ding dong...the country is broke to tune of 18 Trillion. Good grief, these liberals just make my head swim.
Governor Perry and others have pointed out over and over that children make up only about twenty percent or less of the illegals flooding our borders. I noticed on Fox yesterday that the panel hasn’t yet gotten the word, or refuse to acknowledge it. It is a straw man set up to distract discussion away from the real event.
These elitists are so free with our money.
I’ve never heard it said that children in Central America were dying in the streets from starvation.
Don’t drop the towel,Jerry!
Let’s drop them all off at Jerry’s house.
Them bastards are not paying the TAXES to pay for that food!
A while back I watched a fair amount of TV, mostly Fox News. Then one day in 2001 I was watching Fox and they announced they had hired Jerry Rivers. I turned the TV off at that moment and swore I would never turn it on again. Now thirteen years later I haven’t turned it back on and I don’t miss it a bit. So thank you, Jerry and Fox, for helping me to clear my life of the cesspool that is television.
He’s an idiot. Many of these nations are kleptocracies and little of our aid would actually go to those in need. Look at Haiti and the billions poured in by government and private sources and yet raw sewage still flows in the streets and many of the earthquake ravaged buildings are not repaired.
Or let them know where Jerry lives.
Leave Spanish language flyers.
Go here to see Jerry and he will take care of you.
Oh and by the way, Jerry has LOTS of money.
