In response to the snotty, condescending, arrogant, falsehoods perpetuated by the commander of the teleprompter at his recent appearance on the Mexican border, did anyone in the media or audience challenge the validity of his blatant attacks on law-abiding citizens, Texas taxpayers, or U.S. sovereignty?
Did anyone remember that the troops on the border were just pushing paper, and not allowed to go with the Border Patrol, or God forbid, shoot a drug smuggler? Did anyone remember that we only have a few hundred miles of the promised fence, which is working very well thank you, but miles of unprotected border in Texas/Arizona that are open to enemy invaders, terrorists, and human smugglers? Did anyone remember or even know that sheriffs of border counties are begging for assistance, while Homeland Security is telling them to stop arresting illegals so their “numbers” will look better?
Did anyone know that, in some cases, the Border Patrol are only allowed “paint ball” guns, and are themselves prosecuted for defending your border and following federal law?
Does anyone equate the huge budget deficits with the cost of criminal activity, health, education and housing costs, or the cost to citizens from rape, murder, kidnapping, drug and human smuggling, uninsured drivers, and even administrative costs of providing Spanish language assistance, when the other 99 different nationalities have no problem learning proficient English in a very short time? What does that say about the goals of our open-border activists? I don’t hear them campaigning for other immigrant groups. What makes them so special?
Does anyone realize that we have 25 million healthy deadbeats on Medicaid, who can easily perform any job that illegals now have, if they have the incentive of working or losing their taxpayer-funded gravy check? Why do we need 20 million more uneducated demanding parasites? Tell me who’s going to fund this socialist agenda when the money/ credit runs out? Are you learning Chinese yet? N. M.
