Top Democrat: ‘United States Cannot Be Expected to Give Sanctuary to Every Child in the World’
It’s a nice thought to say that we could take in the world’s impoverished, underprivileged children and give them a home and a future in the United States. But like most of the warm, fuzzy ideas that liberals come up with, it’s completely impractical and will cripple our country, and therefore, destroy the futures of our own children — and now, even Democrats are being forced to admit that.
The unaccompanied children from Central American crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally should be deported except in extreme circumstances, according to House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer.
“We have an immediate humanitarian crisis that confronts this country, we also have a crisis in terms of this country cannot continue to absorb, nor should it, a limitless number of people who – particularly children who want to cross our border,” Hoyer told reporters Tuesday.
According to the Democratic whip the influx is unsustainable in the U.S.
“We cannot give these children sanctuary except in extraordinary circumstances. Obviously we have refugee status and protective status for people, but the whole sale coming over the border of teens to less is not sustainable in the United States,” Hoyer said.
Tuesday, President Obama requested $3.7 billion in emergency appropriations to address the ongoing influx of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border. Since October more than 52,000 unaccompanied immigrant children and 39,000 women with children have been detained crossing the border illegally. The vast majority of the new arrivals have been from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.
… “Look, you’ve got to make sure these children are safe in your country,” Hoyer summarized the message to the governments. “The United States cannot be expected to give sanctuary to every single child in the world that is exposed to danger in their country because of the failure of the country’s government or local municipality’s government to assist in keeping their own children safe.”
Our own economy is in crisis, and yet Obama wants to keep funneling millions to illegal immigrants who don’t even have a right to be here. But let’s be honest here: Obama isn’t about to make sure that there’s a mass deportation of these children… not when there are thousands upon thousands of potential Democrat voters to prey upon.
