Arizona has got a big problem on it’s hands, as bus loads of illegal immigrants are being dumped in downtown Phoenix on a daily basis. The Greyhound buses, carrying hundreds of illegals each day, are coming from Texas, where there are so many illegal immigrants that the system can’t keep up with them. So the lone star state decided to ship them out to dusty Arizona. Nice solution.
Among these hundreds and hundreds of illegal immigrants, and unaccompanied women and children. Some of the minors are as young as five years old.
A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security stated:
“The situation with the kids is that they came by themselves, they have no relatives here, and the consulates can’t keep up. They’re in limbo. There’s no one (back home) to deport them to.”
Arizona’s governor, Jan Brewer, is outraged by the situation, which she called “a disturbing example of a deliberate failure to enforce border security policies and repair a broken immigration system.”. Brewer was never made aware by the federal government that they would be implementing this policy of ‘dumping’, however Arizona is doing the best they can to make accommodations under the circumstances. Brewer, a Republican, commented:
“I am disturbed and outraged that President Obama’s administration continues to implement this dangerous and inhumane policy, meanwhile neglecting to answer crucial questions our citizens demand and deserve.”
Brewer is absolutely right about it being an ‘inhumane’ way of dealing with the immigration problem. While the Democrats think they’re giving illegal aliens a leg up at the same time as garnering votes, there is nothing humane about a 5-year-old child alone in a foreign country. A 5-year-old can’t be left alone in their own home, much less a foreign country!
Liberals are billing this crisis as an “urgent humanitarian situation”. What they fail to admit though, is that it would be a non-issue if we protected our borders in the first place and did not let these illegals into the country.
