1. People care about the innocent children the same can't be said for the parents that put their children though the journey though.2. They are not inhumane conditions. 3. The ones that died had preexisting conditions that didn't show signs of illness upon capture, such as the kid who had Influenza.4. "caring" does is not equal to agreeing with your chosen solution for the problem.5. It's not as big a talking point because ultimately this fight is political and everyone and their mother knows it.6. They are breaking federal law which makes them criminals who are illegally invading our borders and yet we still treat them pretty well, there are other countries that shoot illegal immigrants on sight and patrol their borders with mines, soldiers, tanks and aircraft.7. It's not our duty or responsibility to house or take care of these people as I said above they are criminals and aren't asylum seekers because they don't follow the rules/laws of asylum seeking, they also chose to make the conscious choice to take the journey to the US knowing full well what could happen and the dangerous it involved and they chose to do it anyway.8. If you care why don't you go get them , bring them into your home and take care of them with free food , clothing and shelter.They are criminals illegally invading our borders, breaking federal law, they are not asylum seekers and they came here knowing full well what could happen as well as the dangers involved. They're luckily they aren't shot on sight or put in actual prisons and prison camps like in some countries.
Google Clint, TX 275 kids held in a detention center that was max for 100 kids max 72 hours. These kids were there for weeks. Limited food, no beds 8 year olds caring for 12 month olds they didn’t know. No access to toilets. HELLO- The US is the THIRD WORLD country. The US is becoming a third world country. The rest of the world is laughing at us. We’re treating refugees like this. This is worse by the way than we treat adult refugees because at least they have agency. If you don’t want to take the parents in, that’s fine. Give the kids safe harbor until their parents are deported along with them. That’s the Christian thing to do. Don’t leave a 12 month old alone to suffer and die without being held. That’s the cruelest way to die for a child that isn’t even old enough to sin. You wouldn’t let you dog live in these conditions.
Spare me your faux outrage. If you really cared about the welfare of these children you would advocate for Nancy Pelosi and the Dems to pass a funding bill to address the massive crisis we have at the border. That crisis is caused and worsened by the Dems' refusal to close the loopholes in existing asylum law which incentivizes these people to continue flooding across the border. It's very sad that the parents of so many of these children turn them over to "coyotes" (human smugglers tied to the Mexican drug cartels) for the purpose of illegally getting them across the border. And the hypocrisy only becomes more rich and thick when the file photos of "children in cages" shown by the liberal media date back to the Obama administration. Our border officials are overwhelmed by this humanitarian crisis and I wish Hollywood liberals would tell Nancy Pelosi and her party to pass legislation (including funding legislation) to address it and the incentives that are drawing these masses of people to our border.
I hope you never seek to have kids. If you do I think you’ll feel a great amount of shame in your comments and mindset on this. You have a moment to act then it’s gone. I will pray for you and your family. I will pray for your safe keeping.
So she refuses to address any of your points, typical liberal
I don't think he is all that wrong think about it. THEY knew. Plus if you care so much invite them in to your home feed them take care of there medical needs there doctor visits there day life. That's what your expecting the united states to do at no cost to them.
Those people were seeking asylum which is 100% legal, so no they're not illegal. Unfortunately people have give more of a shit about imaginary lines and the color of your skin than the strength of your character. There's many people who come in from other countries and have anchor babies but no one cares because they're white. Melania Trump was here in the US illegally for quite some time before she married her anchor baby.
I think if more people heard the stories of what these people go through not just on their journey but once stating their intent to seek asylum it would be eye opening. But since we all have our echo chambers many people don’t hear stories of real people or the deaths or care. They only see it from their view, I would never put my child through that, what bad parents. They make these statements based on false half’s truths to all our lies they’ve been told. I volunteered to help a group of Eritrean refugees get settled and acclimated by driving them to appointments for paperwork, check ins and just helping with things that came up throughout the process that may be unfamiliar to them. Acclimation and one of many community reps to help them with the lay of the city. My favourite acquaintance was about 20, he had taken some pretty scholarly college level classes and was a bit worldly. He escaped absolute hell but the thing that I remember as shocking is that he spent over 6 months in a detention camp after seeking asylum. It wasn’t a good environment but he kept hope. So here he was now with his social security card in hand, quickly figuring out all of the government bureaucratic hoops he had to jump through. He was so happy, optimistic and seemed to have all the tools needed to enroll in the top notch university in our town. For me I cried tears of just gratitude, joy, humbleness. If only we could all see America through those eyes, he isn’t wasting his chance. And if only we could see his commitment and that he we be an asset not a liability. If we all went on a Mexican vacation and suddenly had to fight that hard to get into the US half of us would simply not make it. I have little patience for people with a sense of ENTITLEMENT. You’re not special, this country could go to hell in a hand basket tomorrow. Then what? Who will open their door to you?Don’t take asylum seekers can’t seek asylum when the time comes.
Why is the media not reporting it? How do you know about it?
Watch groups and organizations I’m involved in. We get dispatch orders to go to the border and either draw attention, pick up kids whatever we can.
Okay. What is the cause of death for these kids?
Dehydration, flu, neglect. The list goes on, it takes a while to die of dehydration, one detainment center didn’t follow protocol or call 911 when a child in their custody for weeks showed signs of dehydration and he died. These are news grabbers and headline the whole day after the deaths of you listen to anything other than Fox it is covered. How can you think a child deserves to die or that it’s their parents fault?These kids are in US custody. It’s not like they are dying a day or two into custody. They are dying because of the conditions in which they are held. If you see a 3 year old kid left in a car in the summer do you just walk away leaving the kid? Then say that was on the parents? No, that was also on you.
Nice to see you involved in human trafficking. I sure hope you get charged and convicted. I'd happily fly down there to testify against you. The cartels applaud your actions.
I do, there's a problem, and an opportunity in every problem, right? What do we do about it... lets hear some brainstorm answers... march on washington, etc.. I don't know that it's as blown up as they say, but I'm sure it's not good. they aren't just dying at the border, they are leaving their homes due to the mess there, suffering on the way, then what they get in the housing here. We are required by law to house and process them, but appears the system is not working... under load, etc.. I posted something on this... it is possible to visit those facilities. there are none near me. To be honest, I think the problem is that government has taken on this role instead of people. People care for one another in communities, churches, as an example, used to run schools and medical, they do it as it is what they love. Government does it as a job, it's a structure, and corporations value the dollar and profit. Which is better then... to make sure a child has a soft bed to lay on that may have lice in their head and not enough people to tend them, and diseases, or to pay a good bonus to the executive using that money? See the problem? We've taken the heart out of society, we got $ in it's place. Just a theory...
1. People care about the innocent children 2. They are not inhumane conditions 3. The ones that died had preexisting conditions that didn't show signs of illness upon capture, such as the kid who had Influenza.4. "caring" does is not equal to agreeing with your chosen solution for the problem.5. It's not as big a talking point because ultimately this fight is political and everyone and their mother knows it.They are illegal immigrants who came on mass to the country against the law. It is not morally right to say that we should be forced to house every last one of them, which is ultimately what people who claim to care are suggesting. Yes, there are some sick children amongst them and they are receiving treatment. Trump sought to increase funding for border holding facilities to even improve the situation to better care for those currently there and Democrats denied it. Which is just more proof of this all being politics.If someone REALLY cares they can both acknowledge that 1. we should not allow all of them in or even a large portion of them in for our own security and 2. that if we want to help them to the best of our abilities (without hurting the country.) Then we need to send away the adults along with their children. If they are sick then help them before sending them away. If they aren't sick, just send them on their way. We have a process for a reason and they are saying screw you to everyone in this country and everyone else who is going through the process to legally gain entry.
"caring" is not equal*
Yeah... why doesn't Congress CARE about the inhumane conditions children are in, at the US southern border? Specifically, people like AOC who made that asinine comment! Since all spending bills MUST originate in the House of Representatives, why hasn't AOC proposed spending the money for new additional beds, and other resources they NEED to care for these people who entered the US illegally!That bitch (AOC) and anyone else like her that proposes we simply allow anyone to enter the US at will, bypassing our established immigration laws, needs to get their heads out of their asses and see the consequences of those actions. I propose we start sending ALL illegal aliens to the homes of ANY politician that thinks illegal immigrants should be allowed in the US AND the same for those wanting amnesty.
I could solve the problem in a day if i was president. All we need to do is put sanctions on central American countries and then impose a 50% tariff on Mexico until they secure their border with Guatemala and Belize. I would also give an ultimatum to everyone in the press, to not publish any stories related to whats going on. And then I would mobilize the Coast Guard, National Guard, and Navy to assist ICE in deporting all illegal and legal immigrants from those countries who are residing in the USA. All the families would be re-united in their country of origin <3
1. The conditions are not inhumane.2. They are people illegally trying to invade my country. They are not following the rules for asylum. There is some evidence they are being paid to do so or used as political props.3. They need to take care of themselves - not come here and be a burden to the US.4. These children are often not underage - they’re not children at all.I could go on.
There mothers and fathers should have thought about that before dumping them off there. THEY knew. Plus if you care so much invite them in to your home feed them take care of there medical needs there doctor visits there day life. That's what your expecting the united states to do at no cost to them.
A lot of people care about the children at the border. And the media is reporting about it. If you are listening to Fox or other right wing media, you may not be hearing much about it. At least not in a non-spun way.
That’s the problem. I know a Fox viewer who is thinks it’s the only real news. It’s not news... ☹️He isn’t even 50 years old yet and it’s this hear what I want to hear ignorant af attitude. His being done a disservice by this network. I mean watch it if it feels good I guess but every person that seeks truth should have at least three different news sources. Im not saying read them everyday but on important issues compare and contract, find out for yourself. Just like with climate change I feel these are the same people that want to bury their head in the sand. They know there’s a problem and they are contributing but can’t bring. Themselves to actually look reality in the eye. Kids dying at the border would be too painful for them to look into and say am I making this better or worse through my actions? So they avoid and avoid Fox gives them the fairy tale that makes them think I’m the right guy I’m a good guy, everyone else is stupid. But they have to know... those other sources that all say the same thing, there’s truth to it. But I don’t want to open that Pandora’s box, what could I even do about it, not my problem. Would you agree?From people who watch Fox, have their little community but also friends with diff views and open to other sources of reporting. They know there’s a problem, they’re bothered but they think it isn’t my concern, doesn’t effect my daily life and nothing I can do. So I care but not enough to get upset or change my vote.
They're illegal aliens. I couldn't care less, all illegal aliens should be deported. If people want to come here, they need to get in line and apply the legal way. Even so, we do not need any third world migrants. They put a strain on our social systems and bring their third world problems with them. I don't care what the leftists say, illegal aliens have no right to be here.
Their are legal asylum seekers, refugees. This is not the same thing as illegal. Not at all. An 18 month old now stranded in a holding facility built for 100 people standing up for 24 hours, now holding 275 or so kids for weeks with no showers, beds or food? PLEASE READ UP ON THIS RECENT CRISIS OUTSIDE OF EL PASO. Babies with no parents to care for them for weeks, children caring for these babies. It’s a miracle that only a handful of child lives have been lost. If we do nothing, many more are sure to die. Pro life, life matters, what about these innocent lives? Babies without a parent or care, outside of the older kids held captive and doing their best to cheap the younger kids alive?
They still haven't gone through the legal proceedings to enter the country, thus they are an illegal alien
Asylum seekers my ass. They are illegal aliens. Sure, it's their parent's fault for bringing/sending them but they still have no business being here. Almost 100% of those people are economic migrants. My position is firm in demanding a zero tolerance policy for illegal immigration. In fact I'd like to see legal immigration limited as well. We're full. We don't need them here. Most immigrants are on welfare anyways, they are a burden on actual Americans. I couldn't care less about what happens to illegal aliens, all that matters is that they get deported ASAP.
Read my above comment. These parents know what they were bringing their kids in to. THEY knew. Plus if you care so much invite them in to your home feed them take care of there medical needs there doctor visits there day life. That's what your expecting the united states to do at no cost to them.
It'll be fixed soon. It all started by a dumb dude forcing people to break the law. (Because even people following the law are being rejected just saying they have to meet a quota imposed by Donald Snowflake. They've killed many kids do they stopped keeping count. But it's hard enough to believe there's a dude dumb enough like Donald Snowflake. To see people even more stupid who follow him... It only means stupidity has no limit lol
Nobody forced anyone to break any law. If those scum stayed in their home countries they wouldn't be in this mess. They have no right to be here. It's 100% the fault of democrats in Congress who refuse to close the asylum loophole that allows illegal aliens to claim to be refugees. A system used to assist Cuban actual refugees fleeing communism is now used by MS-13.
who says - no one cares - ? why don't you go get them , bring them into your home and take care of them with free - food , clothing and shelter ! Thanks and all can be right there
Do you care? That’s the question. I’ve put my money and time where my mouth is, renting those long church style vans to transport recently released families to other cities. If I could foster right now I would. Texas is one of the worst states for violating foster laws. We have to get the kids to relatives or so it of Texas if and when possible and need people to help with the database.
Let me ask, Who is footing the bills for these illegals that you are dropping off in the other cities? Someone (The working taxpayers) are paying for the drain that is being put on the system to pay for the benefits that these people need.
@Surely we are so cruel as to drop and run. Leaving them on the streets, wtf?Non-profit host organizations that have the means funds and host families. We just didn’t have the transport to get people that were literally dump en mass onto the streets without warning before Christmas where they needed to go. Warm beds and support organizations were in place because we were hoping with all hope to be ready if and when these people were released into the wild with no money, dehydrated and brutally confused. Well needs exceeded resources volunteers took people into their own homes.
The adoptive families need to take these people in and provide health care, food, clothing, a roof over their heads and be responsible when they commit crimes. Not the rest of us.My problem with them is that most will try to make this country into the one they left, instead of trying to make theirs better.
Nobody seemed to care when Obama did it and even announced that he would separate children from their parents but yet you care now? I really could care less because this is my country my family came here the legal way. If anyone is to blame it is not the president it is the parents who brought their kids over the border knowing they were not welcome. They could have went through the proper channels and they did not.
Because today unfortunately nobody cares about a problem unless it's what celebrity is fucking who and other complete nonsense. Nobody seems to care about humanity anymore, it gets pushed aside for stupid memes and videos
I care, but there isn't a damn thing I can do about it.But I'm at the point where if I see an ICE agent get hit by a car, I'm just going to walk by and let them die
What makes you think that.
Texas, as well as so many other places in this world.But I could not agree with you more. How people are able to just look the other way, not giving a shit as long as it does not impact their own merry little lives is beyond me.
Yes! Look outside yourselves, firstly they may impact you more than you think. But secondly, fuck your daily life, who are you and what kind of moral standards do you have set for yourself and who you are?Most of these people have adequately high moral standards. If it were a neighbor child of whatever race they would say and do something. But for many this is so foreign, depressing, sense they can do nothing (not true). It’s disgusting that more religious groups aren’t stepping in. If you’re met face to face with it, most people act. But others thousands of miles from the border think, whatever and much worse. I just wish they could see the reality. Congress is actually making bipartisan Swift efforts to come up with emergency relief funding But for the most part people are giving little to no shits. The US is turning into a garbage country ran by it’s Garbage Pail POTUS. Mental breakdowns on the weekly regular. I knew during GW’s time in office we could comeback from that. But this... this is why I have dual citizenship. I worried we would burn out, go down the wrong path, no right to privacy after the patriot act...Bush v Gore was a ground changer. I wasn’t old enough at the time but I studied it extensively in university. It wasn’t a sound ruling. Slave to the machine- that’s what you are if you don’t look up and look around at what’s going on. By the time you realize it will be too late for you.
Based on the media attention it has gotten and prominent people such as AOC talking about it, it's pretty clear that some people do care about it.
Nobody cared when Obama did it so why do they care now? And knowing what could happen, how bad of parents are those people really?
Exactly what I said
They do, but this has always happened when people are caught.
I don’t think no one cares. They could avoid the conditions you’re calling inhumane just by staying in their own countries, couldn’t they?
First off, the little illegals aren't dying. They're living in almost club med conditions. If it was so horrible, they would stop crossing the border. Whoever heard of someone climbing into a prison.
They actually are dying, in Texas specifically. New flash... smfh
No they aren't. Reality check... smh
Why doesn't anyone care about social welfare programs splitting up black families for decades? Liberals are no friend of mine. And p. s fuck immigrants ~Mr Bails Extraordinaire
Because they have no business being there in the first place.
Why doesn't anyone care about the millions of babies being murdered in our own country?
The left only cares about illegal aliens. They enjoy seeing millions of unborn children murdered.
@young_old_soul I totally agree.
People do care but can’t do anything about it.
That’s not true, some people can help. San Antonio was begging for cars, vans and buses months ago when They administration randomly let loose a bunch of migrants from the border, Austin went to help as did Houston but most nonprofits in Texas were already overwhelmed. San Antonio has sister cities in Texas willing to take the migrants but not enough transportation in the 24 hour need. People in Texas ARE stepping up in many cases. Trump says dump them in sanctuary cities and those cities say, YES PLEASE. WE WANT THEM HERE. The kids are the one stuck. Please don’t ever say there’s nothing you can do. Call your Congressperson, I don’t care if they are as red as they come, call. Call your Senator. Donate. Move your butt to the border cities for a week to see first hand. I’m not saying you should personally vacation to a border town if it isn’t possible. But how bad do you feel every time another kid dies in these facilities? I’d rather do something when I can then remember later that I could have but didn’t.
Because they're only illegals. Simples...
illegals have nothing coming.
Because it's not true what you claim.
Elaborate good sir, no time to be lazy.
@Paris13 what do you think
Why would we though?
Do you care?
Why did their parents put them in that situation
