I listened to what the woman had to say and the following can be stated:
There is much there that was stated, and I will take this where I believe Jeanine got it wrong. The first part is on the MS13. What was not stated,
is that this gang started here in the US, and then the problem was shipped back to El Salvador, thus giving them a spread going from the US through
Central America, where the spread and continue to do so. And it is kind of sad that she ignored the other brutal gangs in the USA, as if they are not
a threat, when it is shown that a few of them are just as wide spread and equally dangerous if not more so to the general public.
She wants to know all about the people coming into the country and that is true, however, the saddest thing of all, is that she is the child of
immigrants herself, coming from a culture, where the woman is treated more like property, and where there is no laws about beating ones wife. And
that her own parents did not come to this country, with much to offer, but seeking a better life, starting at the very bottom of the economic ladder,
requiring assistance once here. Her farther being a mobile home salesman and her mother a department-store model. But what is even more remarkable,
is that she is ignoring some of the truths that are out there, how immigrants often tend to do the jobs that no one else is willing to do, many
starting at the very bottom of the economic ladder, and having to work hard. Does it lessen the value or contribution that immigrants make to the
Yes it is true that both Bush and Obama did send the National Guard down to the border, but the mandate was very clear, it was to observe and assist
in finding, but the national guard was forbidden by law from apprehending any illegal immigrant, leaving that to the Border Patrol. For the US
military to apprehend or even take direct action, beyond a support role, would require either a violation of the Posse Comitatus act. However there
would only be 2 other conditions, the first would be an act of congress, or for the president to declare a national emergency, and thus put that area
under Martial Law. That would mean curfews and possible other actions that there would be very little in the way of justice for those caught up in
She mentioned about the drug problems but what is not mentioned, is the role of this trade by the CIA and other government organizations that are also
responsible for this problem. Nor was there any mention about the current opioid epidemic, that was caused by the pharmaceutical industry that is now
spurring the drive for those seeking to get ahold of heroin.
Another part of the problem that is not mentioned, is that many of the conditions in the Central American countries, have been influenced by the
policies of the US. Many of these countries, were dictatorships kept in power by the USA as part of the cold war strategy. And how the revolutions
and civil wars were a people wanting freedom, thus causing further problems in those countries, a mess that the US should take some responsibility in
While she is correct this is not a Left/Right issue, however, she seemed to be mentioning the Democrats, making it a left/right issue. The way that
she presented this, means that it is removing a fundamental right that all citizens of this country have a private ballot to vote. And the way it
sounds that the only ones she would find acceptable would be those who would only vote Republican.
The issues of immigration are complex, and goes back further, than many of us have been alive. The idea of a wall is not going to solve this problem
and ultimately be a waste of time and money. Even if it was built, here is the issue at hand. It is estimated that 40 to 60 percent of the illegal
immigrants, that come here come through legally and overstay their visa’s. So if they are coming in legally and simply staying how would a wall
stop that? The other aspect that is not mentioned, is that nature and time will often degrade if not take down a man made structure, so the true
cost is never revealed or can be known, beyond the initial cost to put it up. And it does not solve the problems.
The main problem is funding, and a small number of people. The first problem is funding. Unlike many other federal departments, the Immigration
department, is heavily underfunded at all levels. There are not enough border patrols to cover that great of a distance, and there are not enough
attorneys or judges that could cover that case load or interpreters there to handle the cases. There are about 350 immigration judges, who are
working in 60 courts, and are trying to review up to 700,000 cases. And the courts are seriously backlog.
