Immigrant children bringing out
the worst in some Americans

Fort Worth Star-Telegram, by Bob Ray Sanders

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/13/2014 6:35:35 AM

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their

Comments:
The True Ugly American is the author of the article and those of same mindset. They seek to destroy America as a arbiter of Individual Freedom, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness. I am saddened that more Americans are not madder.

Headline should be:

Illegal aliens invading the USA bring out
the worst in some Americans.

There, fixed it.

Non-Texans should understand that Bob Ray Sanders has been our local saddleburr for many years. I give him just a bit of credit for remaining firm in his misguided convictions over a lot of years when there were few black liberal writers in north Texas. However, I can never read his opinion pieces without remembering his claim to be a conscientious objector during Vietnam. He got away with it.

Hey Mr.Sanders. How many of these illegals are pitching tents on your lawn? If Obama would Enforce the Immigration Laws we have on the books we wouldn´t have this problem. Just how much of America are you willing to destroy because of the Children?

It seems to be ok with him that these "children" are making US immigration policy rather than the people of the US.

Go ahead Bob, tell me again why we need them because they come from a failed culture, in a lousy wothless country.

Now Bob, tell me what country you´d like to go set up shop in?

Perhaps....but in this case obomba brought out the worst before any knew of the ´children´ marching up to declare war on us. This invasion was planned when the skinny dark ass was sworn into office the first time....in plans for his second term Many knew that once hunkered down in our OVAL OFFICE we would never ever get him and his brood out the door again. His entire family has brought out the worst. Many of us have lost friendships and family members only due to the fact both sides felt they were on point...not bullet target point, but ´feelings, ideas, and intention point. How many have just cut off any and all communications with those that don´t agree? Frankly, when invited for Christmas and Thanksgiving, can´t begin to stomach sitting at a table breaking bread with those that wish to destroy our America. Also surprised that they can still own the idea they carry in our most treasured memories giving the frame of mind in which they live.

Rat congrresscritter on the Judge´s show last night started on his talking points regarding children, citizenship, immigrants. The Judge cut him off at the knees and said "Sorry, we´ve run out time time and thank you". Like the Judge, we´ve run out of time with no thanks to you This will not end till rats no longer have any say in governing.

My Granfather and Grandmother with their infant taken on Ellis Island where they legally entered the USA. The infant is my father.
What´s coming across our southern border is NOT worthy of the name immigrant. Do you think we are fools?
THEY are illegal aliens. DO NOT insult the memory of my Grandparents and the millions of other immigrants who came to America..THEY are welcome here.

UAC´s are not "immigrant children." They are illegal aliens.


While Bob Ray Sanders expresses "sadness" at the sight of Bible thumping, flag waving, law abiding Americans, I am encouraged. It is so refreshing to see ordinary citizens push back against corrupt politicians and bureaucracies.


Surely this cannot be what the left had in mind when it first realized cartels were exploiting the law...and did nothing to stop it.

US acceptance of a flood of unaccompanied children has puzzled Americans who thought we had border laws.

It is slowly dawning on American taxpayers that instead of denying the children entry, our government has chosen the alternative multi-year process of sending some back. The government hope in the meantime is that they can be reunited with their parents who had previously been allowed in seeking work.

There, fixed the headline and the first sentence.

How about a compromise Mr Sanders? Comprehensive Amnesty for a change in welfare, ebt etc, to reflect that an individual or family can only be on government assistance for a total of 1 year in every 5 years.

That might be unpalatable for good intentioned democrats, but it will demonstrate republicans are willing to compromise.

RUSH: Last night Anderson Cooper 24 spoke with author David Quammen about the book Ebola: The Natural and Human History of a Deadly Virus and How America Should Respond to It. Anderson Cooper said, "There are those who say that there should not be flights allowed from Liberia to US, even flights that have connected through Europe. That´s not even really possible. First of all, I don´t think there are many flights that directly connect from Monrovia to the US.

Four relatives of the Texas Ebola patient who have been confined to their Dallas apartment are being moved to an undisclosed location, according to a Dallas city official. The four people are going to be moved later today, according to Sana Syed, a spokesperson for the city of Dallas. The individuals, who include three men and a woman named Louise Troh, will be moved once the Fire Marshall secures and contains the car that Duncan was in before being taken to the emergency room. Troh traveled with Duncan from Liberia and has been referred to as Duncan´s wife by other family members. Dallas

Ebola has reached our shores from Africa. Dozens of children are reportedly suffering paralysis from a deadly virus with unknown origins. Medical providers across the country have warned of a looming public-health crisis as communicable diseases spread unmonitored and uncontrolled. Other countries are cracking down. But America is stuck on open-borders stupid. The Diversity Visa (DV) program, to take just one glaring example of government insanity, is still going. On October 1, the State Department opened the annual DV random lottery to applicants from around the world. Yes, it’s completely random, like a Powerball drawing.

In a column in the Wall Street Journal, Rove urges Senate candidates to talk about "pro-growth policies like tax reform and regulatory relief, spending restraint to reduce the debt, health-care reforms to replace ObamaCare and energy policies like the Keystone XL pipeline" in addition to national defense. Republican Senate candidates like Scott Brown in New Hampshire and Tom Cotton in Arkansas started to surge after they made illegal immigration a

While most folks have had their eyes diverted by the Ebola scare, another illness is hitting hundreds of kids especially hard this year. Some have become paralyzed by the illness, and others have died. Calling it the "mystery illness," doctors say it is a strain of viruses called Enterovirus 68, and it has hit kids from California to the East Coast. First diagnosed in the U.S. in 1962, the virus has been rare here. But this year it has exploded for unknown reasons. As Breitbart News reported, since mid-September, more and more cases of this mysterious respiratory illness have broken out, but

Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on Friday said restricting travel between the U.S. and West Africa would likely “backfire” and put Americans more at risk of contracting Ebola. Appearing on MSNBC, Frieden was asked about potentially prohibiting air travel between the U.S. and West Africa, where the Ebola outbreak is most widespread. He said that such a restriction would likely be ineffective and would make it harder for health officials to root out the virus. “The only way we’re going to get to zero risk is by stopping the outbreak at the source” in West Africa,

Well that didn´t take long. Less than 24 hours after President Obama commented that his "policies are on the ballot" in the 2014 election, Sen. Pat Roberts´s (R-Kan.) campaign became what appears to be the first Republican -- of many to come -- to use the remarks in a campaign ad. As The Fix Boss wrote shortly after Obama´s comments on Thursday, they were basically a gift-wrapped campaign ad for Republicans trying to tie red-state Democrats to Obama´s unpopularity. The Fix team wasn´t entirely prescient, though. I predicted that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) or former senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) would

Although the vice president expressed confidence in President Obama´s policies and leadership, he painted a rather bleak picture of the modern world, quoting as he often does Irish poet William Butler Yeats: Folks, “all’s changed, changed utterly. A terrible beauty has been born.” Those are the words written by an Irish poet William Butler Yeats about the Easter Rising in 1916 in

MILWAUKEE — She can rouse a crowd as she did here this week, connect with women and drive turnout among African-American voters. Yet despite the nail-biting closeness of state contests to decide which party will control the Senate, Michelle Obama has been largely absent from the campaign trail so far. She has her reasons, Democrats say: Mrs. Obama hates to be away from her daughters. She loathes Washington’s toxic politics. She resents Republicans for their opposition to her husband’s agenda. But she also believes some Senate Democrats have been insufficiently supportive of her own efforts to end childhood obesity. This month, though,

They are also dreamers, living and working in the country they call home, and making it a better place for all of us.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this
