In the summer if 2014, thanks to B. Hussein’s illegal DACA and DAPA measures, thousands of unaccompanied children arrived at the US border. Many were from Guatemala.
Imagine how I felt! I had sent my own 19 year old “child” to Guatemala that summer! (Or at least, given permission and paid, however reluctantly, for her to participate in her university’s public health program in that pestilential hellhole.)
She was miserable, ended up coming home early, and–I hope to God– has been cured of any desire to risk her life in dungpit regions.
But here’s what I want to tell you:
We went to Guatemala to visit her. We saw Guatemalan families up close and personal. They carefully held their children’s hands, dressed them in cute little bright plaid school uniforms. The children, and their parents, were if anything a bit overfed. They adore their kids! And I could not reconcile what I saw there with all the reports of Guatemalans perching their children precariously on The Beast , alone, to take their chances at the US border.
When we left Guat, a gorgeous young woman, working in public relations for Guat, accosted us at the airport and asked how we had liked the country. Would we recommend other Americans to visit? Would we, perhaps, like to invest in Guatemalan projects?
Never mind all that, I said. Tell me how Guatemalan parents can send these thousands of children unaccompanied to our border? What do they expect?
She said: because these children already have family members in the US. And what they expect, and get, is reunification.
The Demoncrats had tremendous success with the “breaking up families” meme . They used that to successfully reverse the ninety percent drop in illegal invasion which occurred when Trump was elected. Remember? Those glorious days before it became clear that even the GOP didn’t have Trump’s back?
So what I’m predicting is, forget the mantra that these people are “running for their lives” to “escape violent crime”. No, even the tried ‘n’ true mantra “a better life ” is not nearly as good as “breaking up families”.
It is the US’ fault these illegals are here, after all. I think we’re way beyond the point that anyone dare question that. Therefore it is merely cruel, inhuman, to even try to prevent every noncitizen remotely related to the resident lawbreakers from running across the border and into their open arms. Starting with the cute little muppets and extending to 40 + year old “kids” like the “Dreamers”.
I heard some Mexican official say that the main reason for the caravans is not work, but “family reunification “. Olé! It’s a winner!
(What nobody ever seems to notice, of course, is that the US doesn’t have a wall keeping people in—there’s no reason these so-loving families can’t re-unite in Central America–oh, never mind.)
O Ratty, mark my words,: the Demoncrats are regrouping and this will be their new banner as they march toward their goal of cultural and national deconstruction of our beloved country.
Do you think there’s any way we can win this?
