Brilliant. Absolutely. And not a minute too soon. Legislators need to begin using the proper word to describe the event which is taking place on our southern border: “refugees” – These children are fleeing the savagery which rises during the disintegration of law and order in failing third world nations. Call this what it is – a massive sudden influx of child refugees. Put a stop to it. Our infrastructure cannot support this tsunami of people from Central America.
Since October more than 52,000 unaccompanied immigrant minors have been apprehended crossing illegally into the United States through the southwest border. The vast majority of the minors are from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
“Frankly, the border states have been left hanging to fend for themselves, increasing the health and security risks to our citizens,” Weber added, explaining that state resources are being used to deal with the influx, but “it is still not enough to solve this crisis.”
Weber’s bill, the “Illegal Entry Accountability Act of 2014,” would halt U.S. foreign aid to those countries until Congress determines they have taken sufficient action to stop the illegal flood of unaccompanied minors into America.
“If the President and his administration won’t act, then I will,” he said.
The saddest part is it will never pass. Not in a million years.
