Dude, if me and my friends choose to make an uninvited trip to your house, I guess I can expect you to have food, lodging and medical aid waiting for us?

And personal gain for the parents totally ****s over the children right.

Just the weirdest brand of victim blaming, so common too.

I was one of the strongest advocates for fair treatment of ESOL students in my district when I was a teacher. Now I’m just nice to the dish crew at work.

That's fair. The U.S. has really fucked Central and South America. I hate to think how many people across the globe blame U.S. citizens for the actions of the U.S. government and military. Scary.

No, it's the dragging children thousands of miles to a place where they will be jailed that fucks them over.

So you treated everyone fair and acted nice? That should be a given. That's not proactive.

I'm gonna spend some time on a journal post. Clap back at ya later.

You know for a moment there I thought that you were going with the quite popular mantra that the children basically deserved it because their parents suck.

We should be blaming the people who sent them on this trek, not the U.S. who is now forced to deal with the problem.

Yes, the U.S. could de-fund the military and pay for all kinds of humanitarian aid, but we are not the world's babysitter. It's nice to help when you can, but it's not our responsibility.

If this were legit people escaping oppression, that would be one thing, but considering that this is a stunt funded by George Soros, those involved in creating this fiasco can eat a dick. And the parents dragging their kids thousands of miles should be arrested and prosecuted for child endangerment.


Dude reminded me of a female dog. I'm verbose. What can I say.
If a law abiding Mexican family showed up at my house with all the correct documentation I still wouldn't let them live in my house cause this is a stupid comparison.
