Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 03, 2014

Christine Wicker: Exactly 75 years and one month ago the St. Louis, a German trans-Atlantic liner carrying 938 Jewish refugees, was turned away from the United States, forced to return to Europe. U.S. law didn't allow them sanctuary. Today we are preparing to send 45,000 children back to Central American countries controlled by drug cartels that routinely torture, rape and kill children who refuse to work for them. So routinely, so often are children menaced that their families sent them away, alone, across thousands of miles on just the slimmest of hopes that they might be safe.

"They were sent by poor families so terrified for their safety that they paid many thousands of dollars and entrusted their children to criminals hoping they might arrive in America and be safe."

If these families are so poor, where did they get the many thousands of dollars to pay for their transport. I don't many of thousands of dollars to pay to have my children shipped to a foreign country.

America is already overburdened with massive over-population.

These kids coming here is as it should be.
They are the people that Central America doesn't want.
They're here to join the people Mexico didn't want.
Who can complain, among the descendants of the people Europe didn't want and the people Africa didn't want?
It's only natural for these others to join us.

There is a common sense, compassionate way to handle this. We're not doing it. Had we not wasted trillions in the FAKE Iraq & Afghan wars, we could handle these kids with no sweat. Easily. Of course, the faux wars were intended to bankrupt what Wall Street hadn't already stolen. It made me sick when Cheney sent our brave troops over there and i'm still sick about it (with hardly a slap on the wrist).

These lawless societies are where the NRA should be focusing their efforts. It is these societies that could benefit by everyone having a gun. But you don't hear a peep from the NRA because these societies are too poor to buy guns from those who control the NRA.

"The repercussions of this are 10years down the line....."

True but not for the reasons you think. The real repercussions 10 years down the road will be those that are the problems caused by baby boomers retiring and growing old with too few young people working and paying taxes. Dirty little secret. When we allow these kids into the country we steal from their country and gain workers who will produce and pay taxes for many decades. I don't think that, historically, you can point to any influx of immigrants that has cost this nation anywhere near the amount that this nation gained from their immigration.

Yep. The U.S. doesn't want the problem of demographic decline like Russia is currently facing:

www.worldaffairsjournal.org

Immigration, illegal and legal, has helped the U.S. continue to have a growing young work force. If we educate all of our children well, kids like these 45,000 would be a positive to the country, not a negative.

It's also tragic that we'd refuse sanctuary thousands of kids facing a dire situation back home.

It is amazing to me that so many Americans have such short memories, our own ancestors came here and were reviled by those who were already here and now, today, we do the same thing to another group. Anyone of Irish descent, as I am, is a hypocrite if they preach an anti-immigration screed today, and don't even give me that "but my ancestors came here legally crap." They sailed over here and got off the boat, within one day they were here legally, we don't let immigrants of today the same easy entrance into the country. Today, it's a very expensive and very long battle for legal immigration and, just like our Irish ancestors, these people are hungry and poor. When they get here though, they sure as hell are willing to work.
I think from now on I will ask which nation your ancestors came from before I consider anyone's xenophobic rants against immigrants of today.

By rights we would have to protest the consumer. We would have to protest ourselves. It's the consumer who fuels the need for cheap labour. It is the consumer who makes possible for the desire for these undocumented. We are the cause for these people coming to our Country in droves.

Sorry Larry.. It's still mostly the producers. When they started farming work out to the cheap labor, they didn't lower the prices. Even if the consumer were willing to pay more, the producers would still use the least expensive labor pool they could find.. and they'd pocket the difference as they always have.

it's certainly no surprise that you call those people names. It's typical actually for the left who supported LAW BREAKING CRIMINALS stinking up the place, trashing the streets and destroying private property with all that occupy waste of space and time to call these people names because the left AGAIN as I SAID...believes they are freedom fighters or some such stupid stuff but if the right does it they are 'selfish heartless cowards'.....

NOW the plan is to house these people in PUBLIC schools were taxpayers will pay for lights, guards, and no telling what else.

So as long as it's liberals doing the protesting it's ok, not the other way around. Got it, that is usually the case.

When Obama officially declares them and all the others streaming over our borders as refugees we might as well kiss our collective asses goodbye.

And it will be the liberals fault and their fault alone.

Strawman argument Larry.

Obama is going to classify them as refugees soon enough.

I am not going to engage you in the argument as to why having undocumented aliens coming over our borders is just plain wrong, children or not. It is like a slap in the face to common sense.
Where did these families get the money to send their kids on such a dangerous journey in the first place?
It is especially irksome when there are people that go through the proper requirements to emigrate to this country that don't break the law.

It would help if you wouldn't omit in your retort the pertinent point of my retort to You. Which was this

YOU Might be okay with the flood of diseased poor people but some of us want to prevent this country from becoming a third world paradise dependent on the government....HELP THEM some other way...

According to your very own definition of a third world paradise. Your Texas is already a "third world paradise" that is totally dependent on the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT monies and this is WAY BEFORE You factor in these Undocumented. Rick Perry is constantly asking for FEDERAL GOVERNMENT quite regularly.

Funny how it's only children who can walk across the border that deserve sanctuary. How about all those African boy soldiers and kidnapped school girls? Ooops, you need a passport to get on a plane and so far their fishing boats can't make it this far.

There has been a real stupid question here that has been asked a few times the question asked where did the family get the money to send their children here?
the answer is a easy one. the family worked hard really really hard.
they would as a family work there ass off and as a family chipped in and pool there money to send their kids here.
parents Children grandparents all working together trying to get some of the kids a better future then they had.
and the truth is the kids that reach here will make our future better if given a chance.
you right wingers make me sick

Conservatives only feign anger over this due to the loss of cheap labor.

We all know you don't or can't give a flying [...] about these kids.

If they won't work for 0.0003$ a day here, you'll gladly cheer them being sent back to where that's a rich man's salary so they can produce all the [...] you buy to make yourselves feel "rich".

JPW, I consider myself conservative and I am against cheap labor in every way possible. Not sure where you get your information, but you should try different sources.

This disaster is a direct result of the policies of the Worst President in 70 Years (Obama). It took a while, but word got out that the Worst President in 70 Years had said that if you are a child and you are here you will not be deported.

Now that he has created this disaster, he defaults to his favorite excuse for doing nothing (earning him the distinction of being the Worst President in 70 Years) and blames the Repubs. The uninformed in the press and in the public such as JPW believe him.

First of all Bozo its not your USA. You share it with a majority who disagree with your brand of stupid. You know that same brand of stupid recently used by you to lose a war already when you were trying to spread your stupid on foreign soil

Ya see if what you believed were true there wouldn't be nearly as many in living in the US as there are. Most people have assimilated them. Besides I can pretty much guess that their ancestors have been here longer than yours and considering the US has the 5th largest population of Spanish speakers in the world this is another war being lost by your ilk.

Once again you don your tin foil hat and march lock step into the wrong side of history.

You are a liar. He never said that and everything else you put into your idiotic post is also a lie. He is actually trying to expedite the deportation of these kids. What a fool you are. Do you ever watch or listen to any news source besides right wing liars?

Most go deeply into debt with loan sharks to get it, Aflac. Many of the people sneaking over are basically indentured slaves for years to pay for themselves, or their kids. Too bad Rush never told you that.

I doubt Rush knows that because he lives in a right wing bubble where no contrary thoughts or facts ever penetrate. If you listen to his show one thing is obvious, no debate is allowed because his ideas can't withstand it.

and you people will continue to be duped by this president and WHOEVER It was that got the message..some how to these other countries to SEND YOU CHILDREN by the thousands and they will be able to stay....and if thats not the truth then I ask again a question DEMS WILL NOT ANSWER.

Some "Christian" nation:

"Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?'

And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'

I will concede the President had his part to plan in this ongoing immigration drama. As usual it is too little too late. But, Congress is more to blame for not addressing this issue as there has been plenty of opportunity.

YOU have not one shred of evidence that the President orchestrated this.

You have nothing but your typical TP BS.

Perhaps you can show us where the President has EVER said anything like there was a change in U.S. immigration policies means any child who crosses the border can stay. Because that is what they are hearing.

I blame the media and the Do Nothing Congress and Blow Hards like you for escalating this humanitarian crisis that the President has to now try and resolve through Executive action.

Isn't there enough suffering in the world without you adding to it?
