VIDEO: Welcome children

George Will: 'We can handle this'
Register
Jul 28, 2014

 

The Register's syndicated columnist George Will weighed in on what Americans should do about the children at the U.S.-Mexican border. 

“We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to America. You’re going to go to school, get a job, and become Americans,’” Will said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday.

"We have 3,141 counties in this country; that would be 20 per county. The idea that we can't assimilates these 8-year-old criminals with their Teddy bears is preposterous. We can handle this."

There you go again

Don't forget about our own children! We seem to be having a problem maintaining our owm.

Contango

Think of the tens of billions in taxpayer dollars that can be saved annually by disbanding the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Dept.?

H*ll, open those borders and put out the welcome mat for ALL the poverty stricken children of the world.

"20 per county"? Why not 200, 2,000 or 20,000?

"We can handle this."

vcreed123

aaaand who is it that's going to pay for each of these 20 kids per county? Where are they going to live? Who is going to take care of them?? Let's worry about taking care of our own starving, neglected, abused children that are already here before we go ahead an make the problem worse so the liberals can feel good about themselves.

Re: "who is it that's going to pay,"

Just put it on the Federal Reserve's tab.

They've already got over $3 trillion on their balance sheet, what difference is a few more trillion of 'free' fiat currency?

How can the lefties reconcile the FACT that this was said on 'Faux News'???

George Will is on occasion conservative.

deertracker

Wrong! Why does every CONservative have to have the same exact opinion? Agree or disagree but you can't shun the guy just because he has a different opinion. I happen to partially agree with him. We shouldn't divide up these kids in twenties but we can handle humanely returning them home as long as it is safe!

Contango

Re: "as long as it is safe!"

It ain't. Drug gangs still rule and the govts. are corrupt and ineffective.

Many that are returned are just waiting to begin the trek again.

The vast majority will be able to stay.

U.S.: Light up the "Vacancy" sign; FREE food, schooling, clothing, shelter, medical care (and whatever else we can think of) is awaiting you!

PLUS, if you don't have a "teddy bear," one will be provided for you compliments of Geo. Will.

Have you met "every" conservative as your assertion implies? Who is shunning "the guy?" Just curious.

deertracker

Sugar is shunning the guy. My assertion does not imply anything. It's well known that either you get in line with their way or get lost!

CommonsenseNow

Well known by whom? About what are you talking? As I said, George Will is a man, not a script. Just like most people. Big whoopty doo, he has his opinion on this matter. So what? I disagree. You agree. The next guy disagrees; the next guy agrees. Then all of a sudden it is somehow newsworthy that someone dares deviate from some mystical "script." Some view the situation that there are a group of people who broke the law but still need taxpayer help because it is the compassionate thing to do; some view the situation that we can't even help our vets, we're broke, and it falls on the backs of 120 million taxpayers to take care of it all when they're struggling to bring home the bread. So, we have different opinions. Is that a bad thing? I don't believe in these hard lines. Let people be people; not labels.

deertracker

You asked, I answered! Save the diatribe for someone who cares!

sugar

You don't even know who the fu** George Will is. All you know he is supposed to be on the other side, Will is rarely conservative and if you did know anything about him that would be number one.

CommonsenseNow

YOU ARE RIGHT!!! GEORGE WILL IS A RINO, NOT A CONSERVATIVE. You have a juggernaut on both sides. The last time there was a real reduction in the federal budget was in 1964. When they talk about budget reduction, it is always reduction of growth. The feds are pumping so much money in the stock market. This is a huge bubble. It's impossible to pay this debt back, unless they reduce the budget like 1/3 and GDP increases by 5-6 percent. There simply are NOT ENOUGH "rich" to pay the bill. Russia and China are getting together ... if the dollar is no longer the reserve currency, the shi* will hit the fan. And people are playing tiddlywinks. Focused on minor crap. None of this stuff is going to matter in a couple of years.

deertracker

He's a hater and a rightie yt like you!

CommonsenseNow

Hey, I have an idea, since you are so compassionate about those crossing our open border. Call your representative and sponsor an MS13 gang member, since are flowing through the erased southern border too. Yep, you don't have to waste your time showing off your 10 IQ on this blog ... you can invest that time in doing things you so passionately espouse. I think they are paying $1,200 a month of someone else's money to house these illegals. See. Problem solved.

jazzbo

Dang ,.... George Will has human feelings .

And I thought humanity went extinct in the rightwing-nut ideology.

Perhaps he's the ONLY one left with a heart.

Please use your heart to call the Erie County Job & Family Services to see how many kids have cases open, how many need homes, and other relevant statistics. The way the columnist makes it sound, and you echo, is that we just have homes and resources aplenty laying around like windfalls that are being wasted. The last I knew, ECJFS was pretty much redlining on casework and there are kids who are waiting for homes.

How fair would it be to our own kids in our own county to put them at the back of the line for housing and resources for those who aren't even citizens and are most likely illiterate in even their own language and culture let alone ours?

Where is the heart in that, jazzbo? I'm not saying these things to score points or play "gotcha". I'm actually using my heart in consideration of the callous, throwaway "solution" that was offered in this article and that you seem to support.

jazzbo

You make me tired.

Everyone here, mind you this is the man that called ME a child! Yet he consistently calls people names, tries to shut down points instead of make them, and can't even seem to argue against a "child". All while making homophobic slurs and other ignorant statements.

Did you see that OH SHERIFF ESTIMATES ONE-THIRD OF COUNTY BIRTHS ARE BY ILLEGALS. They are bankrupting the hospitals and school system. "every kid gets less. Imagine being in a school and you have a classroom with 25 or 30 students, then you have an interpreter for each one of these kids that are sitting-can you imagine the disruption? ... I talked to the school people, that work in these schools, off the record. They said it's a total disruption. It comes out of the money that they don't have and it's killing our system here.” http://www.breitbart.com/Breitba...

Right on Hero. Jazzbo, you are idiotic. Notice I did not call you an idiot, just sounding idiotic. Let's assimilate 20 per county......till the next group. Let's go over to Eastern Europe and see who wants to come to our country. Oh, and let's give them a "menu" of each county in the US and let them pick. BTW....they are parishes in Louisiana.

120 million American taxpayers can take care of the world's poor, about 3 billion people. Perhaps, the American taxpayer can just take care of the most extreme poor in the world, about 1.3 billion people.

Re: "Erie county go get your 20."

Rep. Pelosi recently equated them to all being "baby Jesus".

The congressional leader dismissed the strain on our nations financial resources to care for all the children of the world in troubled areas, saying she believes the U.S. government should look at the children like "baby Jesus," who she added "was a refugee from violence."

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitba...

Now I'm no certified Bible historian, but unless the census was in fact some kind of genocidal plot I fail to see how he was a refugee from violence. But that's really just nitpicking an otherwise and wholly inane comparison she made which is the more concerning issue. It's not her first nor her last, especially after she squawked after the Hobby Lobby decision that it would make forms of contraception illegal.

Amazing how religion is good only when you can use it to try to win a vote or two. How shallow and immoral...

jazzbo

....like the rightwing does.

Thank you for validating the point that the House Minority Leader, a staunch Democrat, is actually just as manipulative and ignorant as those on the right who practice these same tactics. I'm glad we agree this behavior is inexcusable. Now THIS is progress!

jazzbo

No , we DON'T agree.
In the sense that its about the children , there's truth in it.

But for men who are trying to be the President ( Reagan , G.Bush , etc. ) using religion to " sweeten the pot "-- the behavior is manipulative , dishonest , and inexcusable.

Manipulation and dishonesty are a couple of very well worn strategies used by the Rightwing .

The Hero Zone's picture
The Hero Zone

So you are saying that it is ok what Rep. Pelosi said because she is "leftwing" and that this "leftwing" NEVER uses dishonesty nor manipulation? Well I'll be. I had no idea that everyone on the "left" was as pure as the wind-driven snow and when they misrepresent the Bible in an attempt to call about 70,000 kids each a "baby Jesus".

Glad in no way this chronically-gaffing Representative wasn't trying to sweeten any kind of pot with these words.

So just to summarize: everyone on the left is good and flawless; everyone on the right is evil and manipulative. Right?

Yes, where is Will coming from? He must have made that comment while in Colorado!

George Will is a man not a script. He wrote his peace. Some will agree, some will not.

Darwin's choice

"The Navy intercepted a boatload of people off the Texas coast today.

This placed the Navy in an awkward position, as the boat was not heading to the US, but towards Mexico and central America.

Another surprise finding was the people were white American retirement age seniors. Their claim was that they were trying to get to Central America or Southern Mexico they wanted to return to the US as illegal immigrants. Then they would be entitled to far more benefits than they were receiving as legitimate American retirees.

It is believed the Navy gave them food, water and fuel and assisted them on their journey."

I can just see the Indians saying the same things when the Mayflower showed up. Or 1900's when all the people leaving the home land for America. How many of you would be here if they said no?

Donegan

The native Americans did not have a "Country" They were nomads who traded entire area's for beads and blankets. As for the 1900's There was a ton of backlash against illegals that's why there is Ellis Island in New York, It was not the mainland to segregate the legals from the illegals and keeping the quota's. They still said NO quite a bit.
Now we are a country and we still have immigration laws. If you do not like those laws do not expect others to follow ANY property laws. (Such as breaking into your home taking stuff will be considered "Undocumented ownership")

20 per county for those currently here, next month another 1, the month after another 1, the month after 2 since the word will get back that it is working, the month after another couple per county, the month adfter 3 or 4 as more countries start sending their poor people, and so on. How long till it gets to be more than the wing nuts can handle? it will be too late to stop when the flood hits as some will say but we have let so many in before... just a few (million) more. When the camel gets his nose in the tent, it is time to get it stopped, when he is all in it is too late. Same with fleas, rats, in-laws, moochers, or uninvited guests.

Just look at kids with their toys. They're so happy to get the one they want, but then when a new one comes out they throw away the "old toy" and beg for the new one. I suppose the children and toys are fairly obvious references and the fact that this comes across as an accurate comparison is disturbing even to the one who is making it.

Face it grumpy, your grandchildren and others' are the old, boring toys. It's time to throw them away and get new ones. Yours don't count, anyway, because their problems aren't real like these other kids'.

The righties all up in arms that these kids are possibly staying yet they boo-hoo and wring their little hands over the below statistic and want to take away a woman's right to choose.
Over one and one half millions abortions performed every year.
• Non-Hispanic white women account for 36% of abortions, non-Hispanic black women for 30%, Hispanic women for 25% and women of other races for 9%.[3]..

There is a tremendous amount of that going on, I agree with you meowmix. There are parallels with abortion here, but the two shouldn't be directly compared.
