@greatking, if you’re organizing something, then let us know by emailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Journalists aren’t mind readers, nor can we phone every resident of even such a small place as Oracle.

I believe the protestors have a point. We have plenty of homegrown problems to deal with, and plenty of our own people to help before we start taking in others. This entire immigration issue had already grown to be far out of hand even before this latest influx.

Only when every American man (especially veterans), woman, and child has everything they need, then and only then should we be looking at taking in others and sending aid to foreign nations.

It has always sickened me to see so many of my own countrymen (including my president) so worried about the plight of foreigners while being so indifferent to the suffering of so many of our own people right here at home. And, it disgusts me that many of of those call me a racist for feeling the way that I do. Unbelievable.

I honestly believe we are living through the stupidest time in our nation’s history. And, yes, I am including the Civil War when I say this.

I’m not too interested in what the bible says. And, perhaps you should look up the definition of “foreigners”.

You, nor anyone else reading this, would give away your own stuff if you were having a difficult time feeding your own family (If you would, then there is something very wrong with you.) We really need to start adopting this attitude on a national level.

There are far too many idiots spewing misinformation about how that conditions in other countries are somehow our fault or that they’re our responsibility to fix or that we owe border jumpers something…none of those things are true, and the sooner we get right with that, the better off our country will be.

Bret, is that what it says in the bible? Help the poor, sick, and the helpless only when you have enough stuff yourself? We’re talking children, not “foreigners.” By the way, maybe we should give back the Statue of Liberty since we’re completely over what she symbolizes.

@Tea4

Yes, the the Statue of Liberty says all of that stuff. And, it isn’t BS. What the statue apparently also now says, and I must have missed it, is the part where it says “Disobey our laws. Disrespect our sovereignty. Shit all over the accomplishments of those who immigrated the correct and legal way and earned their way in (or are currently working to do so)  and just sneak in and then claim you’re somehow entitled to stay.”

What you and the rest of the open borders crowd seem unable to comprehend is that opening the flood gates and letting the whole world in without regard to who they are, what they are, how many there are, or what they may or may not be bringing with them is grossly irresponsible to say the least and would have disastrous consequences in so many different ways. This is why immigration laws are there. They exist for very good reasons. They are not “broken”, they have just been unused. If current laws are enforced then we’re all better off.

There is nothing racist, hateful, mean-spirited, uncivil, angry, or vitriolic about this position whatsoever. It is responsibility based on logic and realism. It is based on the desire to look after our own first, a desire we should all share but unfortunately do not. The needs of a United States citizen (or LEGAL resident) trumps that of a foreigner, every time all the time.
