How noble is it when Ivanka is attacked every time she dares put up a picture of her with one of her children. How dare she be happy. Then her husband is accused of being a super villain by an actress who used to be a friend. I hope the Trump family has good protection as such loose talk is asking for a violent reaction from the unhinged left.
The leftist rage was enhanced when one father killed himself over it happening to his child (how killing himself will make it better for his child is beyond me to understand but it ratcheted up the rhetoric and the accusations as who can't relate to upset over the idea of small children being snatched from loving arms to a cold prison).
Anyway, I saw this article on one of the facilities where children, most who came up from Central America and often are older teens, with information on how the facilities are run and what they are trying to do--
It is, of course, only one facility. I am sure, given all the photos floating around, that there are many other articles, some not so much on what is happening but how horrible it is. The latest is the cartoonist who put up a photo of the immigrant family running into the US to escape whatever they left behind, while their child is snatched up by a specter looking like Trump. Let's keep that hate going folks-- all in the name of righteousness.
Evil and scariness is what the left is creating day after day with their acolytes (yes, this is cult like, which the left accuses the followers on the right as being-- basically two cults and neither one with the interests of the public) sharing it all to keep the fear and anger going.
I wrote about why it's happening in the last blog, that this is about laws that the left don't care if they change because they profit from it by those who don't find out what the law is but just repeat the distortions; so won't repeat it.
I don't have a good answer for immigration issues but have lots of questions.
If we end up like Europe, with millions coming, will it change our culture if they are of a different one? Many do not want to speak English or be taught it, what will that mean for jobs? Many seemingly don't like our country but just want out of their own or go where there is money to be made-- what will that do to our society-- one nation Under God, what God? What of those who can't support themselves and need help? What does that do to the ones in poverty already here? Is there a breaking point? Some try to make this into a brown vs. white issue. I think it's more a cultural one as we already aren't brown, white or black, we are a hodgepodge of ethnicities, but most who came here wanted to be Americans... not transform America into something else.
I see the difficulty of trying to fix the world's problems by taking in everyone who wants to come. I see the unfairness of letting people work here many years and then deporting them simply because they didn't wear a seat belt. The thing is if we give amnesty to all, what keeps this from escalating with increasing numbers showing up. A lot of the world is facing violence. Can we take all those from there? What happens when we ignore one law for convenience, to the rest of them? Is it really racist to want to control our borders?
The only answer to a fair amnesty is a real end to the ease of coming here and finding work. Enforcing laws that say you can't hire someone under the table would be a start, with penalties to the businesses that hire them, and maybe a wall although I don't know if it's more than a sop. Maybe it's what we need though to make the point-- then let in the farm/construction/service workers we need with a path to citizenship if they so choose-- do it legally so they have rights. Some here don't want that-- on the right and left.
See, back to the questions with no answers.
