Travesty of “Manufactured Southern Border Crisis”
A Political Game
This is not a pleasant topic for me to write about. However, I feel compelled to at least try to catch the attention of those undeserving politicians we sent to Washington who took the oath to protect and safeguard the citizens of the United States. And, I am sick about the way they have turned a crisis, …yes, I said crisis situation into a political game where each side is determined to get the better of the other to ensure that their opponent does not receive any positive credit for taking an action that undoubtedly is in the best interest of our nation-loving citizens. Well by now you should know why I am pretty ticked off.
Rhetoric, Denials, and Finger Pointing
I am certain you have noticed that when those horrific school and church shootings happened, leaving a number of our loved ones dead, that both sides of the political arena quickly point fingers at a particular self-serving issue being responsible. Lots of rhetoric takes place during the heat of the moment, then after things cool down and the news media moves on to their next headline story, it’s back to business as usual. Meanwhile, denials continue while the general public continues to be faced with a huge number of problems at the Southern Border and our U.S. representatives refuse to work together to bring this critical matter under control. If this is a “manufactured crisis”, why are such experts as Jeh Johnson, President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary saying “we are truly in a crisis at the Mexican border.”
A few critical health-related issues to think about:
- Higher rates of serious infectious diseases (whooping cough, tuberculosis, malaria, measles and even leprosy) are being reported. “Americans should be told that diseases long eradicated in this country — tuberculosis, leprosy, polio, for example — and other extremely contagious diseases have been linked directly to illegals,” said AZ Congressman J.D. Hayworth. Reuters International News reported, “236 confirmed or probable cases of mumps among detainees in 51 facilities in the past 12 months, compared to no cases detected between January 2016 and February 2018.”
- Here’s a question for every elected official in our Federal Government: “What is being done to prevent cases of the Ebola virus from being able to sneak across the uncontrolled Southern Border?” Sounds terrifying, doesn’t it? Ask yourself, “What’s to stop illegal individuals coming from those Ebola-risk countries from catching flights to Central America countries or Mexico, and then crossing the border into the United States? Folks, mark my word the risk of this happening is growing greater each day.
Severity of Crime
- Some will argue that serious crimes by illegals are not a problem. Here’s why I disagree:
Just this morning, (May 17, 2019) an article by David Warren, AP, reported that a man from Kenya, living illegally in the U.S. has been charged by Dallas police with killing at least twelve elderly women. It appears the motive was robbery. According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in Texas alone, there have been more than 251,000 criminal aliens in Texas jails between 2011 and 2018 charged with 663,000 criminal offenses.
Meanwhile, our great country and its law-abiding citizens continue to be put at EXTREME unnecessary risk because of our elected officials turning their backs on this problem and refusing to even acknowledge that it is a problem. So, America, what are YOU going to do about it? Here’s what I am doing: Making calls using those phone numbers I supplied in my prior post, Southern Border Crisis; writing blog posts such as this, and passing them along to people like you.
