In the most outrageous argument ever advanced in support of illegal invasions of the US by foreign aliens, presidential aspirant Jeb Bush tried to sprinkle fairy dust on the criminal act of defying US borders and immigration laws by claiming that such acts were, in fact, acts of “love.”
According to the allegedly intelligent Bush, violations by illegal aliens must be countenanced because the aliens invade out of a burning love for children and other family members.
Mind you, the illegal tsunami from south of our borders is not driven by greed, that is, a quest for free education, food stamps, welfare cash, free health care, housing, and other benefits which are intended for US citizens, but which are hijacked by altogether too many invading illegals!
Bush also fails to take into account the economic harm that illegals inflict on the ability of low-income American citizen families to secure and hold gainful employment. He also ignores the fact that illegals often abandon “beloved” family members in the third-world nations of origin.
As reported at the reference, the lust of the Obama Administration to grow the base of the Democrat Party, combined with the greed of illegal aliens for American booty, has made American policy anything but “humane.”
As reported, in part:
The number of minor children crossing or attempting to cross the U.S. southern border unaccompanied by a parent or other adult relative has exploded from 6,560 in 2011 to an estimated 60,000 for fiscal year 2014. Border patrol agents in South Texas reported over 1,000 such children were apprehended by officials earlier this month, including a 3-year-old boy from Honduras.
As a government official from Ecuador told The New York Times, one of the main reasons is a belief held by many in Central America and Mexico that some sort of immigration reform will be passed that allows anyone who can get into the United States illegally to be able to stay.
In other words, the prospect of amnesty is encouraging more illegal immigration – and in this case, the human trafficking of children. Often raised by their grandparents or other relatives because their parents have already come to the U.S. illegally, these children are traveling alone or with human smugglers, called coyotes, who are paid to get them across the border.
And what happens once they’re here? According to the Department of Health and Human Services, by law, the U.S. government must assume custody of “unaccompanied alien children” apprehended by law enforcement who file claims to remain in the United States. The government then contracts with state-licensed facilities to care for the children until it can place them with sponsors.
According to a judge in Texas who has reviewed numerous such cases, the U.S. government is guilty of encouraging this illegal behavior.
The judge said:
By fostering an atmosphere whereby illegal aliens are encouraged to pay human smugglers for further services, the Government is not only allowing them to fund the illegal and evil activities of these cartels, but is also inspiring them to do so.
Interestingly, one of the reasons given for children attempting to cross the border into the U.S. is that they are trying to escape crime and gang violence in their home countries. Yet the Obama administration’s immigration policies are actually releasing criminals back into the very communities where these children are likely to find themselves in America.”
So, Jeb Bush, just where in the hell is the “love” that is supposed to justify the invasion of ten of millions of low-skilled, non-English speakers into America?
