Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, May 30, 2014

Tens of thousands of children unaccompanied by parents or relatives are flooding across the southern U.S. border illegally, forcing the Obama administration and Congress to grapple with both a humanitarian crisis and a budget dilemma. An estimated 60,000 such children will pour into the United States this year, according to the administration, up from about 6,000 in 2011. Now, Washington is trying to figure out how to pay for their food, housing and transportation once they are taken into custody. "This is a humanitarian crisis and it requires a humanitarian response," said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski, who likened the flood of unaccompanied children to the "boat people" of past exodus movements.

As Americans we should be even MORE accommodating to the Super Massive influx and change the National Language to SPANISH.... I mean after their long journey why should they be forced to learn English when we can all learn Spanish instead...

All Hail Obama,,,

And they call Snowden a traitor?

I'll tell you who the traitors are.....those we elected to defend the USA. For 40 years they failed to defend our borders and economy, and instead involved us in wars pushed by lobbyists for other countries, and wars that are none of our business, and of no redeeming value or to save our freedom.

It's funny.

W. spent thousands of troops and spent millions of dollars on Iraq but did relatively little to end illegal immigration.

W. was calling for Amnesty just before 9/11.

Although I'm no fan of illegal immigration, I admit to deriving a certain pleasure from watching the righty, xenophobes freak out over it.

Hey guys, everything will be fine. Just repeat after me: "abierto," "cerrado," "abierto," "cerrado."

They just want freedom. Free room & board, free pocket cash, free education, free medical care - they want to be free.

I'm shopping and see many immigrant families in native garb speaking what sounds to us American English speakers as gibberish, and my concern is who really pays for their American shopping experience?

Are we average schmucks paying by sacrificing our entitlements for those that have no roots, or are are they paying? My gut feeling tells me they are living on our dole. Convince me I'm wrong and that they otr private sponsors are covering ALL of their costs.
