One of these things is not like the other. It seems our friends at Fosters need to get out their dictionaries:
More than 25 protestors stood on an overpass off Exit 15 of the Spaulding Turnpike Friday morning to make a stand against illegal immigration.
“The goal is to make the American people aware that there are people opposed to illegal immigration,” said event organizer Jerry DeLemus during the protest. “And also let our government know.”
The children who are appearing at our border are refugees. They are coming from Central America where they are fleeing violence and unimaginable horror. It's typical of the fringe right that they're unable to distinguish the difference. It's also unsurprising that they're disinterested. Jerry calls himself a Christian. He opposes a woman's right to bodily autonomy and medical privacy. But when it comes to brown kids, all that concern for LIFE goes right out the window.
Ole Billy Baer who attempted to make a big name for himself a few months ago was at this protest with the daughter he was trying so desperately to protect from learning about date rape. He apparently has no problem exposing her to racism, bigotry, and ignorance:
Baer said the blame for the illegal immigration problem lies with the president.
“The Obama administration has basically not enforced immigration law,” said Baer.
“We're becoming a lawless society functioning with a lawless government.”
These guys sit around watching wingnut conspiracy videos all day. What they don't do is bother to find any credible information:
Since taking the oath of office, Obama has deported immigrants at a faster rate than any other president in US history, nearly a record 2 million people. On a typical day, there are over 30,000 immigrants imprisoned in the world’s largest immigration detention system. Most deportees never see an attorney or have a hearing before a judge before they are expelled from the country.
Oops. Of course DeLemus and Baer couldn't ever applaud Obama, because they're both birthers. Even though the Black Guy in the White House is deporting more people than the last White Guy did, they'd never be able to acknowledge it.
Both of these guys would force white women to serve as involuntary incubators, in the name of LIFE - because imaginary LIFE always trumps all. The inconvenience of brown refugee children fleeing countries devastated by US foreign policy in Central America is a different matter entirely. Their lives are of no consequence.
It's Sunday. Somewhere both of these hypocrites are praising Jesus.
History and background of US conduct in Central America.
