not too old. retired early.from so. cal.
......and PAY for it HOW??? I often wonder when I read this type of response if anyone out there has ever had a class in Economics or Math. Or is it that they just don't care where it comes from as long as it is spent on each small groups needs.
Illegal immigrants suffer the same mental issues everyone else on earth must deal with, but while it's noble to want illegal immigrants to qualify for FREE American Tax Payer Funded care, I can't help but wonder why you don't want us to offer those "FREE" (Ha!) services to every third world immigrant (illegal or not) our mental care services for free. Where do our responsibilities end for providing free services for those who shouldn't be here in the first place?
We can't afford or handel our OWN citizen's mental needs right now. The 15 year old African kid/soilder who has been forced into killing people, or the Congo mothers & children there who have been raped and had limbs cut off because of what Tribe they belong to, likley have FAR GREATER need than those who entered the USA illegally. Should we start flying them over here for the same care??? Where exactly do you think the money will come from??? More taxation? Where does it stop?
I get that you feel for them (so do I) but the math will never add up. We are NOT the world's Medical Provider. If you have a real plan to make it work, I would LOVE to hear it, but at least try to be honest about the costs incurred, and how the American taxpayer will feel about offering more free services to the world when there are millions right here that desperatly need those resources. Thank you in advance for not insulting or demeaning a different opinion on the matter.
So you "heard it" somewhere???.......... Great. Way to back up the statement with facts or a real example.
I guess the respect factor for Barber depends on the color of your skin. He will never be satisfied or supportive of anything in the region, until people of color get more....and more....and more.......and....more. I don't care for tactics that gets him nowhere, but I do respect him for being so consistent in his rudeness and grandstanding. His goals are not for the people of Carolina, ONLY the black people of Carolina. As long as you understand that, he isn't a bad guy.
@ !: No, it's NOT about bad laws at all, !. It's about a good laws NOT being enforced for too many years, which is exactly WHY there are so many illegal aliens living here using our public resources. We need to ENFORCE THE EXISTING IMMIGRATION LAWS ON THE BOOKS THAT ARE PERFECTLY GOOD, and the huge flow of illegal immigrants will become a manageable task.
Putting the National Guard or other military services along the boarder for training, additional security for American land owners (our country), and even some jets and drones flying along the boarder, would slow the illegal crossings and the violent drug traffic taking place along the southern boarder to a slow drip.
The story from Ms. Crowell DID focus on bad police and abuse, but offered NO PROOF to those points made in the article, other than from people who are already lying to us while living here illegally. Did she even try to speak to the law enforcement involved and accused? The people involved here are either illegal, or law enforcement officers doing what the LAWS demand of them. That's all I'm saying here, !. The story is hearsay unless supported by facts. I see NO facts.
I mentioned that living down there for 2 years showed me that they can be a little suspicious or abrasive to strangers (by the way, I'm brown). I was stopped 4-5 times for no reason, asked to explain why I was there, and where I was going. Not a good thing, but not uncommon in the region. My guess is that someone called the law on these people involved when they were driving in that region, and the law personnel acted on that information, just as the EXISTING law requires them too. If they (police or the illegal aliens) broke laws doing that, they need to be punished.
As I said, the recorded tapes of the stop, arrest, abuse, or bad descreation will come out with any lawsuit filed. Get it? There is nothing written in the article that can support the claims of people who were already shown to be lying in order to live here in our country.
Very sad story....BUT they all are here ILLEGALLY....RIGHT? IF the officers were as unprofessional as accused, they need to be punished or fired. The people of this church who are NOT citizens should take the strong hint they experienced and get out of this country. Eventually, the arrest , stop, and what was asked of them will show in the tapes, and those tapes will be released, and the truth will come out.
The men from the church who were deported SHOULD have been deported. They knew the risk when they entered the USA illegally, as all illegal immigrant know. They need to get in line to enter legally. If the fact that they were deported won't allow them to enter legally in the future, they need to send for the family and make their life in their home country. If they really want to live here, they must do it "by the book", like almost everyone else does except those entering from south of our boarder. It's not easy or fast...too bad. Try another country, like Brazil.
Why should we be angry at immigration officers for doing their jobs, unless they are doing it without respect to others and being unprofessional. Come on, this event happened way down in Swampland USA - Lake Charles, La. Why would anyone expect something like this NOT to have happened down there? They harass EVERYONE, regardless of color or status who goes through. I lived down there for 2 years, and they don't like anyone not from the area they patrol and live in.
I feel bad the illegal's in this article because of the separation of families and bad experience the children were possibly witness too, but that in itself is no reason to disregard the laws of this country. Trying to spin the story as a bunch of redneck officers going rouge in Lake Charles, La., does NOT avoid the fact that these illegal aliens felt very secure traveling around this country without papers or fear of deportation, and were surprised to actually have met people who's job it is to STOP them from doing so.
