Protestors say let children die

This protest  led by a radio show host is equal parts shameful and frightening. 

Not my America

Bottom Line

You've made it clear that you think enforcing our laws and defending our borders is shameful and frightening. How many illegal alien children have you now taken in on your dime? Drop the God complex and come back down to earth.

@ Mr. Westerhold:

What did you think of Geo. Will's comment?

How many of "God's children" should Erie Co. take in?

Matt Westerhold

Thanks Contango. The Register posted the comment. His recommendation seems well-grounded, unlike the protest. The flag-waving advocates of deportation without process are having a reactionary response — whipped up as it were — and seem to have a mob like  'others must suffer' attitude. And then they sang 'God Bless America.' They should go to Ellis Island in New York Harbor and advocate for removal of the Statute of Liberty, or at least its plaque.

@ Mr. Westerhold:

So you agree?

Which leads to my above second question: Where's your advocacy?

Why stop with the current influx? Why not invite all comers?

There are an estimated 1.9 billion people world-wide living below the UN designated poverty line.

Come on down!

Yes, Mr. Westerhold why not the rest of the world?
Why are the people who live in the western hemisphere first in line?
Are their persecutions any worse than those of other parts of this planet?

Couldn't find anything in either video clip even remotely related to the headline "Protestors say let children die."

Please explain further.

I thought I missed something too. I never heard that.

I've read where some of these adolescents are part a gang (can't recall the gangs name) and are recruiting the kids that also came here. They're pretty much creating the same mess here, for the reasons why they left their own country.

I agree Licorice.

Thanks Licorice Stick for requesting further explanation about the headline. It is correct because 1+1=2. Watch this link.

I hope my life never has to experience such horrors. And I certainly sympathize with those that have. But I truly do not understand why she is more worthy of a place in line than say the Iraqi Christians who are being decimated now. Or people in African countries who are certainly experiencing similar tragedies. Perhaps the women who live in misogynistic societies would have a leg up....
Is there a line? A number?

Licorice Schtick

So then you don't dispute that nothing in the original video clips, and so therefore, nothing in the piece, even remotely related to the headline "Protestors say let children die."

For the TLDR inhibited, the newly-introduced video is an MSNBC interview through Spanish/English translation of a Honduran girl. Threatened with death by a gang, she payed coyotes in attempt to get reach sister in U.S., and now faces deportation to Honduras.

Matt, no mention of whether the sister is here legally. No mention of whether she is seeking asylum. I can see why she would prefer the more economically promising option if the U.S., especially because her sister is here, but was she not safe once she reached Mexico? (Where they speak her language, btw.)

There are a lot of question here, but there is no reason to think this is a typical case. I don't see how that clip validates your headline.

I think you are trying to hold an untenable position by arguing against something your opponents never said.

The truth is, most illegal immigrants are here to Get More Money, and little else.

The idea that opposing illegal immigration is some sort of genocide is nonsense.

@ Mr. Westerhold:

Are you just posting inflammatory headlines in pursuit of web hits?

It's not up to your usual caliber of editorial. In fact, it could be mistaken for trolling.

The New World Czar

You are correct. I've said it before, I will say it again...

SR ==> "Ratings and Revenue".

Contango

Salespeople use the fallacious criteria of web hits in order to sell online advertising.

Based on the amt. of visible advertising, SR's sales people are doin' a lousy job. Or it could be that the prices are out-of-line.

Bloggers who help to pump up the number of web hits should be given the epaper free.

Quit begging pooh. Pay for the epaper if you want it. Just like a CON always begging for free stuff.

The Big Dog's back

Yes he is. Always wants something for nothing. What's his is his and what's yours is his.

Contango

Re: "Always wants something for nothing,"

Nah. That's a free loading liberal.

Delusionary blather.

Bottom_Line

It's fine for him to sidestep ANY direct question. But he's the only one who's allowed. Double standards and hypocrisy. Two founding principles of liberalism.

I ANSWERED the question Bottom Boy!
