Too true.

Another one of the issues...

Something tells me, I'm going to get tired of writing that... I'd laugh, but it's not really amusing.

It'll be a judgement call, I suppose. ...and the adoptive parents will have to be observant.

Why should we treat them any different from US citizens?

Because they aren't US citizens.
They are a different culture.
And the intent isn't abandonment.

We'll be having hundreds of thousands of people on the border demanding to be with their children. The US gov't won't say 'no you can't have your kids back'. And they won't just hand them over to parents without a court process determining if the kids can be released. So what happens is that those hundreds of thousands will be housed here in the USA while they await word on their children.

- This will cost the US Taxpayer a fortune.
- 'Adopted' children will be ripped from adoptive families.
- All those people will be in the USA .. and they won't leave.
(which was the intent all along)
- And then Pelosi or one of her minions will start screaming 'amnesty'.

Bottom line - We can't afford it.

It's really hard to argue with someone the has over 11 million stars.

Sure you can. Ignore the stars. Star counts aren't correct anyways.

Time for Mexico to grow up and take care of their own problems, instead of dropping their kids on our step and expecting US taxpayers to do it for them. Round them up and take them back and send the Mexican gov the bill. Invasions are against the law. Maybe when these kids get old enough they will be willing to fight for their freedom just like Americans did so long ago. The meek shall inherit nothing!

But you can afford to go to war with every country you meet and you can afford to pay billions to recruit terrorism?

"They aren't orphans", some are!
"They aren't abandoned", some are!

You've got tens of thousands of kids who were sent ahead by the families. You says 'some are orphans and some are abandoned'. Which ones? You can't adopt children out to families when the childs situation isn't determined. It doesn't work that way. And when parents show up at the border demanding to be with the child .... tens of thousands of parents ... the massive situation will cater to the birth parents.

And the US fought for their freedom by invading a country with people already there.

I already said we can't afford it because money is wasted ... like Obama just this past week sending $500 million to Syrian rebels.

Bottom line - we can't afford it.

With existing law you are correct...We could not afford it.

We can't afford hearing after hearing for every child.

We would have to streamline the adoption process.

These parents have forfeited their Rights.

When the child turns 18. They are free to return where they came from.

With at least some education. This is not a Free Pass for the entire clan to move here.

In reality it is a free pass for the whole clan to come here.

That is the major problem.

But we did it anyway, so even tho we cant "afford" to take care of these kids, why don't we just do it anyway?

You're not wrong on any of those point, FF.

A fortune? That's an understatement. But we spend money on things much less worth while... ...and the adoptive parents would have to be screened to be sure they can afford to raise any children. Not just these, but any.

That can be settled either in court, or by political will. The birth parents should be severed from any contact with those kids... This is the messiest aspect of it. ...and would be the death of the plan.

You're, or me, adopting that child. Not, most emphatically, their family. I certainly wouldn't be supporting them in any shape, fashion, or form. When the child is grown? They're welcome to any contact they wish. While they're being raised by me? Nope. Not happening.

As for amnesty? That's a matter of political will, our versus theirs. Me? I'm bettin' on me.

I know this is unlikely to happen. The problems are, in likelihood, insurmountable. But it should be, at least, explored.

I have often thought we should annex Northern Mexico.

At least take over their security. If we do not help make it better for them.

They will just come here illegally. That costs us more.

I'm glad that you support NAFTA.

What's happening is the Beginning stages of the North American Union. The abolishment of our constitution & bill of rights.

Besides, we can't support these damn kids, we're in debt!

America isn't what it use to be, Immigrants are actually fleeing this country now. The only ones coming in are the real desperate ones.

The North American Union will be formed, then all the unions will conjoin to form the New World Order that the elite have been talking about for a long time.

Once the New Age is formed, the elite will have a monopoly on everything, then they can cull the herd. Middle Eastern countries are "in the way" of this vision, hence why their being attacked.

The battle has been going on for thousands of years, The Crusaders vs the Muslims. It hasn't ended. So this is the down right raw truth. Good supporting the NWO.

Perhaps we should just put all the illegals in trains and send them up to you in Canada. Tens of millions of them. You can pay for them. No problem. Let Canada pump out the billions of $$ to support them.

Ultimately, that's the only long term solution.

Mexico, and points south, must, at some point, solve their own problems.
