"In addition to this influx of people from places around the world steeped in poverty and despair, Senator Chuck Schumer authored and helped pass a "lottery" system, whereby winners are brought to the United States. They become permanent residents, who then begin bringing their families to our shores. Thank you, Senator. Ten years ago, 90% of illegals apprehended at the border were single males, mainly from Mexico. Now, more than 50% show up with babies and children, and 90% of them are from countries other than Mexico with 64% being family units or unaccompanied alien children. Together, they claim to be "families" and within three weeks, they will be home free in America. Is there any doubt why there have been more than half a million illegal immigrants this year alone?" -- James Dobson
Sigh. Perhaps if Dobson spent less time bowing down to his political idols he would have more time to research before he yaps. Yes, Schumer was involved in the original passage of the visa lottery in 1990 along with 32 co-signers, 7 of which were Republican. It was signed into law by Republican president, George HW Bush. Schumer was also part of the gang of eight who in 2013 crafted legislation to eliminate the lottery system. The House Republicans never brought the bill up for a vote. Stop playing politics with children's lives Mr. Dobson.
"Before I conclude, I must tell you about the agents who have to deal with this chaos. They are compassionate men and women, sworn to uphold federal law and protect our borders. They obviously care about the detainees, and I respect them highly. They work tirelessly feeding people three times a day and providing clean clothing. They must also maintain the portable toilets in the cells. It is a never-ending task. There are only two large showers in the facility, one for males, the other for females. Their capacity is for only 20 people at a time, which is insufficient. The border patrol agents administer this program, but most of them didn't sign up to be caregivers. Agents were trained to patrol the border and apprehend drug runners, traffickers, smugglers, murderers and every kind of lawbreaker. This is very dangerous work. But, please understand this: The border patrol agents are so busy caring for refugees seeking entry to the United States that they have very little time to police the borders. It is so porous that huge quantities of contraband, including all kinds of narcotics, flow into this country every day. Then it is transported northward to America's cities to be consumed by adolescents and Millennials. Lawless gangs, such as MS-13, are also pouring into the culture, making violence for inner cities a way of life. There is one more aspect to the work of the agents that you should know. They are openly hated by citizens who resent the work they do. They are routinely vilified and mocked and demonized. Their families are also subjected to ridicule. These agents need our appreciation and prayers. They have one of the most thankless jobs in America." -- James Dobson
Regarding the death of a 16-year-old migrant last week -- "Oh well, if he dies, he dies."
Regarding congresswomen who were scheduled to visit -- "Let's start a go fund me for one CTX agent brave enough to throw a 10-15 burrito at one of these bitches."
These are just two of the posts from the secret Facebook page of border agents. That is not even getting to the photoshopped image of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez performing oral sex on President Trump. Now, I do not believe it is fair to broad brush all border agents but to pretend they are all Mother Teresa is equally ridiculous. There are currently 20,000 border agents and almost 10,000 were part of this Facebook group. That is nearly 50% and that should be very disturbing. So you can keep your canned talking points James. Just stop and consider the damage you are doing to the cause of Christ.
"The situation I have described is the reason President Donald Trump's border wall is so urgently needed. He seems to be the only leader in America who comprehends this tragedy and is willing to address it. Those who oppose him do everything they can to impede his effort. That is why I went to the border to see the situation for myself. I came away with an array of intense emotions. First, I was profoundly grieved over the misery of thousands of people. Second, I felt a deep appreciation for those who are doing their best to help in an impossible circumstance. Third, and frankly, I was angry at the political fat cats who have deliberately allowed this chaos to occur for political or financial gain. They, and their friends in the fake media, have told the American people that there is no crisis at the border! Shame on them all." -- James Dobson
What??? So the only one who grasps this immense humanitarian and moral crisis at the border is the guy who caused it? And the solution is to build a big beautiful wall to keep all the scabies infected destitute and dying out? You do realize you call yourself a Christian leader? You claim to be grieved over the misery of thousands of people and then out of the other side of your mouth advocate for a wall so you don't have to see those miserable people? Then you try to demonize the press by lying again and saying they are claiming no crisis at the border? What media do you see that says that outside of Fox News? Shame on you sir! Shame on you for pretending that you have a shred of Christian values left in your politically bought soul. Shame on you for lying about and demonizing women, children and people fleeing from unimaginable nightmares of existence. Somewhere in your family lineage someone came to this country. Thank God they did not meet people like you upon entry.
