Recently on Meet the Press while discussing the growing number of children seeking asylum in our country, Raul Labrador, U.S. Representative for Idaho’s 1st congressional district recommended, “…our country needs to immediately deport these children back to their country.” He continued, “I know it sounds difficult but they are creating a crisis at this time and it actually is harming the children”…huh?
Dear Mr. Labrador and every other gutless asshole who wants to send these victims back to a horrific situation that isn’t changing anytime soon, maybe instead of visiting the border for a photo op you should actually go to Central America and try to exist.
So what’s it going to be America? Are you going to welcome these refugees from Central America or are you going to turn these children away cuz they are inconvenient and too costly. I guess WE can’t afford to be compassionate humanitarians.
But we can afford to: Subsidize Fortune 500 companies like Walmart. (FYI Walmart workers cost taxpayers $6.2 billion in public assistance annually.) Oh and we are spending 2 billion dollars a day on things that go “boom”.
Now let me get my facts straight: We can subsidize Wallmart, spread “Democracy” –by occupying other countries –but when people like what we are peddling throughout the world, aka “Democracy”, and then come knocking on our door we say, “You are breaking laws by crossing the border to afford yourself a better life and sure you’re five years old so here’s some freshly laundered clothing, some Snapple and now go back to where you belong muchacho! We are closed for business! But, if you have some valuable resources– such as oil–we may be able to help you out and invade your country to spread “Democracy”. Wink, wink.
