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."

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.

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.
You think that you are the only intelligent person on earth.

YOU think I am as I have never stated that I do. Why do you project such mythical proportions to a guy who's just like any other? I can't speak for your being tired, nor the fact that nothing you said in reply addresses the topic (or counters it), but I certainly have stated many times that I have never declared myself a smart man.

What does that even mean? Your usual, petty one-liners have been flagging recently.

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.

Yes, I'm clearly the bad guy here.

Want some cheese with that whine zero zone?

Yes, Jazzbo needs to see the wizard for a brain and a heart.

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: "take care of the most extreme poor in the world, about 1.3 billion people."

Reads like serfdom.

How hard will most work in order to support them?

Did you have a stroke ?... because you sound very confused .

Does anybody REALLY think that these kids are the best and the brightest ?

Does Jimmy Carter's Mariel boat lift ring a bell?

jazzbo

If you have to be the "... best and the brightest "... to be in this country -- then YOU better pack your bags.

When you leaving Jazzbo?

knowitall

They could be but that is not the point.

downthemiddle

Waste not another moment... Erie county go get your 20.

....Just don't forget to expand the social services and law enforcement agencies accordingly.

George Will is on the wrong side of this issue.

deertracker

Erie County needs to do all that for 20 people?

downthemiddle

Before it's all over with and these new citizens procreate 'til their heart's content.... breed another generation of takers.

deertracker

You are making lots of assumptions!

downthemiddle

All well proven.

deertracker

Prove it then!

Re: "Erie county go get your 20."

Didn't Mr. Westerhold agree to accept and provide for a few of "God's children"?

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...
