These people are not refugees under Webster's definition "
one that flees; especially : a person who flees to a foreign country or power to escape danger or persecution.
Very well written. However, the countries that these children are coming from are more dangerous than Iraq at the moment.
There are even graphs and everything.
to enter (a place, such as a foreign country) in order to take control by military force
: to enter (a place) in large numbers
: to enter or be in (a place where you are not wanted)
Only some Americans do not want these kids here. I know this, because I am American and I want these kids here. My tax dollars pay for all sorts of things that I don't agree with. Around 42 cents out of every dollar I pay in taxes, goes to our military. I think a strong military is important, but when our military is already larger that the next 14 largest militaries.. I think we can afford to ease up and spend our tax money elsewhere.
I assume that to "enter a place in large numbers" is not considered an invasion if we lock them up and drag them here, like we did with Africans?
"To enter a place where you are not wanted". Pretty sure Native Americans didn't want us here, once they realized what nice Christian values we had. Values such as murdering in mass quantities, spreading disease and kicking them off their land. That was a REAL invasion.
These kids are just trying to escape one of the more dangerous parts of the world. They just want a chance to live. People here, almost entirely white people, are basically saying " No kids, we stole this land from people who look just like you... we cannot let you stay here because I don't want to pay one more cent per tax dollar.
