If kept at say a place like Watertown Gap (I think that's the place or maybe Indiantown) they can be screened for any health issues & most likely react a lot better to treatment simply because other countries don't abuse prescription drugs like us. Besides some of these people have some education & means, if given the chance they may just rehab some vacated properties & start a new life like many ancestors but there again our Gov. has to get out of the gridlock & build our country.
You are wrong. This influx of illegal aliens is going to destroy our culture and create untold hardships for the low wage workers in America. That's why the black community - which has a 17% unemployment that last time I looked - is so strongly against it. These kids have been invited by the President to come here through his lawlessness of not enforcing the immigration laws on the books. He has gone around Congress to implement parts of the "Dream Act" when Congress chose not to pass that bill. Who do you think is going to pay to educate these kids? Many who have never stepped in a school. Who do you think is going to pay for medical care that our lower wage workers don't qualify for? And don't tell me about Obamacare. Having insurance doesn't equate to having access to heath care as we all shall see in the not to far future.
None of them are educated, the educated come here legitimately, legally. These children have been abandoned and left to make it on their own. As for the "start a new life like many ancestors" what ancestors are you talking about, the Irish or the Germans escaping the Nazi death machine. Those immigrants stood in line and came in legally. Many waited years despite being highly educated. All were given medical clearances and many were sent home. Somehow, I think you will feel different about this when your child or grandchild comes home with scabies, body lice or worse. How does comparing the actions of tens of thousands illegal aliens compare to the peaceful, lawful migration of previous groups of immigrations?
The following is a letter I wrote to my Congressmen, not that I will receive a response. They are all democrats and not worth a glass of warm spit to quote someone, Mark Twain I think.
"I have written previously to express my concern about the lawlessness of the Administration’s and by extension your policies concerning the issue of illegal aliens already in the country as well as those making their way here. My concern then and now is the message that is being sent to illegal aliens that they are governed by a different set of laws. That if they are able to make it to the border and live in the shadows long enough they will be able to stay and gain legitimacy through amnesty. President Obama said as much when he used an Executive Action to go around Congress to implement the elements of the “Dream Act” after Congress would not pass the law.
Now, just a few months have passed. A flood of children and who knows who else are flooding over our borders. The majority are coming on the belief that if they make it, they can become citizens, or at the very least, take advantage of all the benefits that are available to citizens (healthcare, in-state tuition, welfare, etc.) I’m horrified to watch in real time as families and children are dying to come to the border because they think or were told “just get here and they can get in”.
Reports of the horrors faced by these children in their attempts to reach the border AND after they cross the border are making its way to the public, despite the Government’s nailed boots attempts through persecution to limit all information about these “detention centers”. Literally, the contracted security agents in these facilities wear brown shirts and impose their “brown shirt” law. The fact that children are dying, being mutilated for entertainment, raped, enslaved, trafficked, sick, alone, suffering, and are being used as political pawns in an evil game is ignored by the media and the democrats (same thing). The children, and who knows who else, are being bussed and flown throughout the country, and this information is being kept secret.
Unfortunately, you have failed to reply to my many letters concerning this and other topics of concern to me. Clearly, you have forgotten who you work for.
However, I have no doubt from following your talks and writings that you support the illegal actions of the President. It is these actions, sanctuary cities, and ignoring border and ignoring immigration laws already on the books that have created this situation.
Well here are the fruits of your labor. The suffering and death of these children and the destruction of their families are because they’re seeking what they perceive to be benefits perpetrated by you.
What’s worse is that the evidence is overwhelming that this influx, this rush, has been orchestrated by democratic operatives and promoted by democrat politicians at all levels. The blood and suffering of these children are on your hands. This is your party, the party of abortion, the party of Death. Clearly this is what you stand for. You and anyone who supports the Democratic Party make me sick.
I expect an answer. You work for me!"
Have you written your Congressional representatives? If not, don't complain when busloads of illegal immigrants show up on your door.
