Not a Joke: Democrats Suggest Lawyers for Immigrant Children in Holding Facilities

AIM Newswire  —   June 26, 2014 

WASHINGTON — In response to the news that illegal immigrant children are being held in not-so-humane conditions along the U.S.-Mexico border, Democratic lawmakers are calling for taxpayer-funded lawyers to represent them.

20130808_climbing_fence_ILLEGALS_AMNESTY_PROTESTReuters reported that thousands of children have come into the United States, but some other conservative news outlets point out that they may be seeking residency to eventually bring their families to the country.

The federal government plans on moving the illegal immigrants to holding centers throughout the country, which had local residents up in arms over the plans. Some 52,000 children have arrived in the United States, fleeing gang and drug violence in Central American countries like Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador from October 2013 to June 15, 2014.

Democrats put out a plan to allow 40-50% of these illegal immigrant children to claim permanent residency in the U.S. and claim it could save $2 billion a year from not having to house the children for months on end.

Conservatives criticized the Obama administration for its lax immigration law enforcement and policies. Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz said,  “(These parents) have been led to believe that all their child has to do is get to America and they will receive amnesty…The way to act to prevent that is to enforce our laws and stop engaging in the lawlessness that has so characterized the Obama administration.”

Does the Democratic plan sound like amnesty to you?

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington
