Americans are very generous people. We help out all over the world when we’re asked. Even when we’re not asked, we’ll still show up with food and medicine.  Whatever’s going on down in Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, if we had been asked for help, we would have done something, gladly. Of course, we probably would have wanted to know what happened to all the money we sent those countries before, or why we’re sending them foreign aid if they’ve collapsed into total anarchy.

But nobody asked for our help. They have just chosen to come here and steal it.

Tens of thousands of unaccompanied alien children were recklessly loaded onto trains and sent across the U.S. border. The people throwing their children at us knew President Obama was eager to hand out amnesty to young illegal aliens.  The administration keeps saying those parents made a terrible mistake, because Mr. Obama’s executive orders only granted amnesty to young aliens already in the United States.

(Wink, wink.)

But the new arrivals are still here, and they’re not going anywhere. Virtually none of them is getting deported. It’s only a matter of time before they get their own Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order, or win a special high-speed “pathway to citizenship” in some feel-good “comprehensive immigration reform” deal that will include some special-education goodies far beyond what the children of U.S. taxpayers can expect.

Unaccompanied alien children are being loaded onto buses and planes, and sent all over the country - whether the people in their new communities like it or not. A lot of this is being done in secret, with state officials kept in the dark.  Indiana Gov. Mike Pence only learned a couple hundred alien children had been sent to his state by watching TV news reports.

There also are many, many adults coming in with the alien children, but you don’t hear about that on the news so much. We’re supposed to think all of the new arrivals as little kiddies waiting to get to the USA so they can watch “Dora the Explorer” in color. That makes it even easier to call us monsters when we complain about what’s happening.

Illegal aliens supposedly “live in the shadows,” but they hold plenty of rallies and marches, where nobody ever gets deported. Have you ever seen pictures of these rallies? These appear to be very angry and arrogant people. The demonstrators hold signs demanding citizenship with no consequences for their actions. They insult anyone who opposes their demands. They’re mixed up with groups like La Raza, whose name literally means “The Race,” and other groups, some of which are openly proud communist organizations. No one at the rallies seems a bit interested in nicely asking the American people for a helping hand.

Maybe we should start a new organization, “Moochers Need Manners,” but even that would be considered racist today.

Tell Democrats in Congress you want that fence they were legally required to build over a decade ago, and they’ll call you a racist hatemonger. To make a deal, they’ll put border security on the table. They promise to think about doing something to stem the flow of illegal immigrants — if you pay them off with amnesty, plus a whole lot of new government spending. But it all turns out to be a con job anyway, because the extra border security never comes. The same illegal immigration problem builds up again, and the same angry demands are shouted at the American people.

It’s like a bad movie that gets remade every few years.

This year, that blockbuster movie is bigger than ever. The number of people flooding across the border is staggering, and nothing is being done to stop it.  Instead, we hear claims that the problem created by Mr. Obama’s amnesty executive orders make more amnesty deals inevitable. We’ve got no choice — we’ll just have to open a pathway to citizenship for the hundreds of thousands of new arrivals, plus the millions already here. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said last week, “The most important thing that we can do to use this crisis as an opportunity is to pass comprehensive immigration reform.”

How’s that for bullying?

We can’t even talk straight about the problem. We’re not supposed to call them “aliens” or “illegal immigrants.” We’re supposed to call them “undocumented Americans,” or “migrants,” or “dreamers.”

I’m a “dreamer” too!

I have a dream that one day, the U.S. government will do its job and provide for the common defense of our borders so our children will have an opportunity at a good education, a good job and a healthy economy, without it all being watered down for dirty votes to keep corrupt politicians on both sides of the aisle in their cushy jobs.

I’m proud to be a part of a nation with such a big heart, a nation that has done more humanitarian good than any other nation in the history of the world. But doing good cannot be a suicide pact. If we overload the system and overtax our people, continuing down this path to the Third World country status, who’s going to pick up the slack and help? China? Russia? Saudi Arabia?

For distorting our legal system, throwing our politics into turmoil, and placing huge amounts of stress on social services that don’t have enough money to take care of U.S. citizens, without ever asking us for permission and never thanking those being burdened the most!For demanding that legal U.S. citizens shouldn’t have any control over the border of their own nation … You … Mr./Mrs./Jr. illegal alien, YOU are the Liberal Bully of the Week!
