On a day when America would normally be proudly looking back to Neil Armstrong’s famous “One giant leap for mankind,” they are lamenting the thousands of giant leaps across the southern borders by tens of thousands of illegal immigrants.
Both sides of the issue were heard in cities across the nation this past weekend, but the naysayers far outnumber the few who seem to think it is a purely humanitarian crisis and the oppressed and displaced Central American children should be welcomed in with open arms.
Mainstream America is at odds, as usual, with mainstream media on the issue. Dems are using whatever news outlets that will yield to make their humanitarian spin, but it is largely failing as opinions and tempers flare because most Americans think Obama’s policies are at the heart of the problem.
To bolster the feeling of most Americans that the crisis is an Obama generated policy blunder is a report from Breitbart News that shows a leak from EPIC (El Paso Intelligence Center) clearly stating that it is not violence and guns in Central America that is driving the immigrants to the borders.
Breitbart says, “An elite, law-enforcement sensitive El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC) intel report from July 7, 2014 was leaked to Breitbart Texas and reveals that homicide rates in Central America suggest violence is likely not the primary cause of the surge of thousands of unaccompanied minors and incomplete family units illegally entering the United States.”
Epic is comprised of several law enforcement agencies, DEA, Coast Guard, Local and State Police and a full roster of other agencies.
They all concur that the recent barrage of immigrants crashing the borders is not caused by rising homicides in Pan America.
Politicizing the plight of Central American youth is not only an Obama policy failure, but is the most amazing hypocritical turn the Democratic Party has ever made and it is impossible to hide.
Democrats with some exceptions are the nation’s abortion advocates hands down. Anywhere, anytime, if it were completely up to them an abortion could be had with or without parents’ consent, ultrasound requirements or any other deterrents.
Now, with thousands of diseased kids and members of dangerous gangs clamoring at the border – the Democrats have grown a conscience.
The nearly 4,000 abortions performed daily do not faze the Dems who seem to think only children from third world countries should have rights and constitutional protections.
The little ones thrown in medical waste receptacles every day are given no chance to live much less to pursue “life, and liberty,” a bit of aid until better times and an education would be all right considering that after all – they are American.
They are not considered for anything and the Dem’s have remembered to stay oh so silent about the abortion scourge they undergird and support. The word was, is and will always be hypocrisy – it cannot be hidden.
The deaths of 55,000,000 American children at the hands of abortion doctors under the auspices of the liberals and democrats cannot begin to be compared with some 45,000 children at the borders of a nation that is not theirs.
Never has hypocrisy had a better example in modern times. In fact, the liberal spin is several stages beyond hypocrisy and is now knee deep in the realms of all that is shameful and ludicrous.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. (Mt 7: 3-5)
