How Astute is the Measurement for Amnesty…?

How Astute is the Measurement for Amnesty…?

So much talk, ostensibly a man lost his position in Congress, for being a bit on the scaredrotunda-capitol-7-1-11 side of the amnesty matter. Interesting notion really when one reviews what Rep. Eric Cantor said and who aligned himself with, special interest groups, it certainly appears as though his opponent, Prof. Dave Brat’s unexpected rout was a conglomerate of fresh thinking, reform policies that made sense, and far be it from me but it does seem Mr. Cantor was definitely for sale.

We would like to present our readers with what the media feels about the first upset of the 2014 election. Along the same lines we would also entertain the notion brought to you by some different people, and listen to their aspirations. Ready?

First from Rep. Wolf (R-VA) where he tries to get issues solidified. “Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) has sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner regarding the situation along the Southwest border where thousands of unaccompanied minors are streaming across the border illegally. Wolf calls the insurgence a “crisis” and points out that it’s putting undue strain on the nation’s social services and suggests the formation of a House task force “to ensure the Congress is doing everything it can to secure our borders, protect national security, prevent the exploitation of children and help avert local jurisdictions, school systems and social service agencies from being overwhelmed.”

From the opening paragraph of his letter to Rep. John Boehner, Speaker: “Over the last several months, we have witnessed an unprecedented surge in the number of foreign minors illegally crossing the southern U.S. border. According to NBC News, “In previous years, 6,000 to 8,000 children a year crossed the border without an adult or guardian. But the numbers jumped in 2011 to about 13,525, then to 25,000 in 2012 and about 47,000 in 2013. This year they were expected to number 60,000 but may be as much as 90,000.”

“This dramatic increase is straining the federal government’s ability to safely detain and return these children to their families in their home countries. In addition, local social service agencies and the school systems in the localities where these children are being resettled will be overwhelmed. We should also be concerned that the sheer number of unaccompanied minors coming across Mexico and in being settled in the U.S. opens the door for these children to be exploited by violent gangs and sexual traffickers.”

This may be a long-shot, but we wonder if Rep. Wolf is either acting on someone’s payroll or if he is just pandering the entire notion of a “Task Force” assisting someone else to take action, or maybe not. In other words Rep. Wolf must know that his pleas for such allocation of items must be falling on deaf ears or certainly from people who don’t want to hear.

I was enlightened by a very thorough reader from England when posed with this question: “I don’t understand how this doesn’t fall under some form of child abuse or neglect…”

So what do you think? I am of the opinion that if anyone were to leave their child to travel, or “go stay with relatives” on their own is not using the full mental capabilities; therefore, the child should be taken away.

The administration’s failure to act appears to actually encourage more illegal crossings, making more children vulnerable to criminal predators. This influx of illegal border crossings has been exacerbated by the Obama Administration’s failure to take meaningful steps to discourage and disrupt the flow of minors through Central America and Mexico prior to reaching the border.

The stories I presented you with about children traveling either by bus, car, on foot, without the presence of an adult — preferably their parents — adds many variables to the situation, of which none are good.

Throwing every semblance of civility into the wind and waiting for the leaves, dice, or chicken bones to line up has about as much meaning as paying for these children albeit in transportation, lodging, accommodations and such is by far a criminal act.
