MRC Asks Liberals To Sign Petition to Relocate Illegal Immigrant Minors to Their Home or Apartment, Hilarity Ensues (Video)
This may shock you, but they are all for those kids coming to America, as long as they go somewhere else:
We are hearing a lot these days about the need to have “compassion” for the thousands of unaccompanied minors who have illegally crossed the southern border. But, the government definition of “compassion” seems to include moving large groups of these kids from the southern border into towns across the United States, without telling the citizens who are currently living there.
I decided to go to a liberal area and find out how people felt about having illegal minors bussed into their town. Not surprisingly, many of them were perfectly fine with the prospect. But, I quickly learned that their sympathies only went so far.
Obviously, the idea of bringing these kids to beautiful Northern Virginia all seemed great — in theory — to many of the people I talked to. But, support for my initiative stopped at agreeing to sign a piece of paper. When I asked these citizens to do anything more to help solve the problem, their sympathy seemed to quickly evaporate.
Streets full of people who say, “I’m for it. Just not in my back yard.”
“I support it in theory, I just don’t want to be affected by it.”
Sounds about right.
