I would never have guessed that you too would have fallen so quickly into using children to propel you into the “immigration” spotlight. I realize that you were probably not paying attention back in 2007 when this now, recycled tactic, was originally used and abused.
So allow me to take this public opportunity to educate you. Back in 2007 John Stirrup, along with Corey, focused much of their attention on the “invasion” of children from South America into our public schools system. They also wanted reimbursement for the supposed “free” education. Only here is the problem, it wasn’t free (if you live in the county, in a house or apartment)there is a real estate tax being paid on that dwelling. In case you weren’t aware, THAT is what pays for our schools.
Also, now pay attention, this is another critical piece of information, there is this pesky Supreme Court ruling, Plyler v Doe. We HAVE to educate all children, I know, so irritating, but hey, I guess we could live in Afghanistan where no one has to be educated.
HHS is providing funds to house and educate these kids while we determine if sending them back home is a death sentence. It may be, ultimately, this is the critical difference between you and me, you see, I see them as refugees.
You can’t claim “compassion” for children and yet have your actions be self-serving while possibly inciting another chapter of Help Save Manassas.
You are going down a dangerous moral path, my friend, and I sincerely hope you rethink this journey you have chosen to embark upon.
