One can have a hard time understanding how any caring parent could contemplate putting their children at risk by coming here illegally to break the law when they know the zero-tolerance policy that is in place and its enforcement so widely announced. What irresponsibility on the part of parents are we willing to condone, excuse, and reward in allowing them to use their own children as gambling chips and leverage in this whole movement to circumvent and subvert our laws? These parents are not only illegals but aren’t they criminally derelict and abusive toward their children in handling and exposing them this way?
And how is it possible for these supposed “asylum seekers” from Guatemala and Honduras, for example, to traverse 2,500 miles of Mexican territory to reach our borders when, if they’re in need of asylum, they have had it the minute they cross into Mexico? Or is it that they demand the luxury of deciding where and how they’re going to attain their asylum and snub the asylum that is readily available right at the border in Mexico – a setting and environment more culturally and linguistically appropriate?
Then too, how is it they are able to make those long arduous trips? Who is supplying their food, medical needs, transport, housing, etc., and moving them along vast distances with the prospects of reaching our borders to pressure and weaken our resources and national security? What human trafficking arrangement are they operating under? MoveOn.org? Or the DNC? Or the Clinton Foundation? Or is Mexico in collusion by facilitating this trafficking?
Most of us are familiar with the call of Jesus to help the poor and some of us have spent a measurable amount of time trying to do that. Obscuring the real issue of national security by ignoring the potential for law-breaking behavior, drug smuggling, camouflaged criminal element, and terror inherent in these population movements, while attempting to promote seedbeds of guilt with emotional pitch among law-abiding and well-intentioned folk is disingenuous.
Sinister forces would attempt to prevail on us to give…give…and give until we give away our ability to give. It would lessen our strength and ability for good in this world and be a form of national suicide. Forces that understand our respect for life and human dignity set out to exploit our humanity by fabricating and manipulating situations to goad feelings of guilt in us to weaken our will and have us yield on our realistic warranties for safety, security, and surety for our loved ones, our nation and posterity. It is fitting, proper, lawful, and essential to have safeguards and expect orderly and legal entry into our country.
