As Long As U.S. Leaders Game The System, Illegals Will, Too


In 2012, the current administration made it clear that certain unaccompanied illegal minors would not be deported if caught. This helped create an atmosphere of tolerance that would be conducive to the current rash of illegal dumping of thousands of children from south of the border into the United States. Now we have a humanitarian crisis that appears to have been manufactured for political reasons.

One would not have to be incredibly bright to predict that families in South and Central America, as well as in Mexico, would recognize a veiled invitation to get their children into the United States with little chance of deportation. Of course, the media are asking opponents of the administration for solutions to this crisis. Almost anything these opponents suggest will be either harsh, making them appear cruel and callous, or weak, making them appear to be amnesty supporters. Either way, they will take a political hit. Meanwhile, the administration can stay above the fray and receive the political benefit of gratitude from many legal and illegal immigrants. It’s a clever and effective ploy with the added benefit of redistributing even more American wealth. It remains to be seen how many people will be hoodwinked.

We have all heard it said many times that America is a land of immigrants, some voluntary and some involuntary, but immigrants nevertheless. We have plenty of space in our country, but insufficient jobs and insufficient resources to support everyone who wants to come here. When we see innocent children used as political pawns, it still tugs at our heartstrings, which is the desired intent. The real question is what are we going to do about it. The combination of immigration reform being a very tough issue as well as a political football has led to governmental stalemates and no useful solutions for decades.

    I’m so frustrated and angry that this administration has caused this humanitarian crisis. Small children and pregnant women are being used by our country and have been forced into unhealthy conditions at the hands of America. Can we still be a country that can hold her head up high? I say no. Not she we have women and children living in industrial buildings,sleeping on concrete floors, without flushing toilets or fully functioning running water. Children with diseases like TB,Chicken pox and MRSA to name a few. And they’re sharing the same room as healthy children, separated by nothing more than yellow crime tape. I’m embarrassed of my government.

  6. While our border patrol agents are changing diapers and otherwise takin care of this flood of children, it is quite possible that the drug cartels are helping terrorists to get into this country! We should all be afraid, very afraid of the consequences of Obama’s immigration policies!

      I agree with you Diane.
      Without a doubt,the most urgent crisis facing the United States today, is the
      lack of security along our southern border.
      We have set in motion a catastrophe this country has not seen since the Civil
      We must secure our border immediately and begin the process of finding and
      vetting those who have arrived here illegally before its too late, if its not
      too late already.
      Our Country’s safety and future is at stake

    This is so true! Even the IRS and BLM do not feel like the rules apply to them. Things will not change until we have real leaders leading. I wish people would tell me where is the outcry from the left like their was during the Elian Gonzalez case?

  8. Doctor Carson … Just finished your book I admire your Faith, Strength and Courage in sharing your thoughts with those who believe that we still have time to change the way the world is being run. I happen to be a School Board member in Wisconsin, and have seen many negative changes take place. I for one could be considered a pot stirrer on the Board. We have 3 grown children that have all turned out to be a success with hard work on my wife’s and my part. I hope you continue your journey and can play a role in America’s Future. My sincere gratitude for all your incites. I’m doing my little part to help make sure our future leaders are just that. My wife and I have 8 (eight) grandchildren and continue to have input as to how they are brought up. God Bless.

  9. Dear Dr. Carson,
    I read your book and I have the upmost respect for what you have accomplished. I truly believe that this next election is Americas last chance to rescue the values we hard working people see being taken from us. I note that for every problem you see that you have a common sense solution for it, I know that you cannot be swayed or bought and I feel you are the only candidate who can garner enough black votes that will beat Hillary. God Bless you for all you have done and give you the strength to do what you need to do for America.

  10. Dr. BEN, Dr. BEN,

    please stress equal tolerance as this is Freedom. U R most excellent as a level-headed, respectful of all people peace-maker.

    But we don’t need to isolate anyone. Like talking about the redefining marriage by some, which you opined they should not (your talk the other day) . Rather I like what you said about 2 consenting adults hve their freedom to choose…..the main idea is to get our FREEDOM back. This is the biggest picture – our freedom of speech and choice which the Lenin and Alinsky leaning left are destroying as a way to dominate/bring America to her knees. Communists said they will take America down by their (Christian) Faith, Family (destruction by taking morals down) and do it thru’ the Democratic party, then the Republican party. Hence RINOS. These have both moved LEFT. Only ones in middle now are the Tea Party Constitutionalists. That is why the Tea party candidates are our last HOPE for saving America and this year is about the “last chance year”

    Let us use smart marketing like the Left does. ERASE ERASE ERASE the use of the label CONSERVATIVE……..very poor marketing label. Conjures up image of stodginess and boring to active energy of young. Use a strong word of Truth of what we want and are really for – for the 20’s -30’s young set like Freedom Fighters, Constitutionalists, Americans for Freedom, Revolutionalists for Free speech……..Revolutionists Against Coming Slavery…. or Americans Against Coming Slavery……..please, please better marketing.

    Look how smart the left is. To get gay marriage to go mainstream to the MASSES, they put it under Civil Rights,,,,and then….into one smart word that everybody will have to agree with: EQUALITY.

    Remember, be as wise as a dog? (not quite) and as gentle as a dove.
    Everyone loves you and they need to now pray and also pray for your protection. When he opens a door, no man can close it. And the converse true.

    Hello, Dr.Carson.
    I just finished your video,’ Gifted Hands – The Benjamin Carson Story’. I laughed, then cried. Then cried some more, ending with remnants of happy tears. What a tremendously inspiring story of your life!

    Our country isn’t going to survive as the America as we used to know it, if something doesn’t turn around and fast. Your insight into problem solving is much needed. I would love to see you run for president, and hope you take this step. Thank you for all you have done for the children, and our country. My prayers are with you and your wife,Candy, your family, and to keep a hedge of safety around all of you.
    Love in Christ,

    The left is trying to liken the child immigrants to refugees. But lets look at the World’s largest legitimate refugee camps. They’re in Kenya & Ethiopia near the border with Somalia; Jordan near the Sutian border & in Gaza near the Palestinian border. In EVERY instance the country of relocation is an immediate border country. If these kids were simply ‘fleeing violence’ as the left says, they’d have no reason to travel beyond Mexico City. The fact that they flee thousands of miles across multiple countries proves that the intent first and foremost is to come take advantage of Anerica’s generosity; escaping violence is just a beneficial byproduct. Don’t let the left flip the argument around and make a straw-man argument out if it. This is a destination trip to America, blaming it on ‘fleeing violence’ is a cop out.

  13. hi!,I really like your writing so so much! proportion we be in contact more about your article on AOL? I need a specialist in this area to solve my problem. Maybe that is you! Looking forward to see you.

    I agree with many of your ideas and I believe you are by far the best candidate for president yet. I would love to see you become president of the US. However I don’t want to be disappointed by foolishness. I was a strong supporter of Herman Cain in the last election bid until he chose not to run because of some charges of behavior in his background.and personal life. Don’t get our hopes up and disappoint us as Herman Cain did. I don’t have to tell you that compaigning for President can be brutal. If you belive you would make a good president, discern what God wants you to do and do it. From my own personal experience a good reference for discerning what God wants us to do in our lives can be found in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius under the chapter Discernment of Spirits. Good luck and God bless you. Daniel Harrison, Bronx, NY
