I am sorry for being late with this post is late but I have been quite ill. Believe me I don’t think you want to know the details.
To begin with I was watching NOW with Alex Wagner on 7/9/2014 and became really confused. A Texas Repressive Julian Castro stated that it is imperative these children be deported, so they can be reunited with their loving parents. That it doesn’t matter what is going on around a child as long as that child is with a loving parents.
Then, I see an interview with a parent that came with one of the children. She brought her child here from El Salvador. This refugee told a reporter how they had to pay an existence tax to a Cartel that ruled the region her village was in. She told how her 8 year old daughter disappeared one day while out playing. Her husband having his legs crushed for daring to look for his little girl. Than about six months later Cartel toughs came into burst their home and executed their eldest son. Why? Their 12 year old had refused to become a servant. His Daddy said they were bad people. These monsters came again not 8 days later killed her husband for nonpayment of the existence tax.
Side-note: Existence tax is a fee villagers have to pay for the right to breath.
Other reporters told stories of toddlers were killed for no other reason than to test a gun. These inhuman creatures said it was to check if the gun had been properly repaired or to test a new guns. Sometimes, they would kill just for the fun of it. Some children were used as experimental animals to test the purity of their drugs. She told,
How boys and girls of all ages were being taken and sold to God knows what Fate. Men who in anger and frustration spoke of fighting back where hunted down and mutilated. This was done as a lesson to their village. The Refugee told the reporter that after her husband was killed. The creature who shot him told her she has 3 day to come up with the she owed in existence tax or her last child would be killed in front of her. So she took her last remaining child a 6 year old boy and fled north.
This is a good environment for a child? Even if a parent pleads and begs for their child to be taken to safety?
Again, I wonder? During World War II didn’t we accept refugee children from Britain? Was there not an extremely brave couple who rescued 50 children from the Jewish ghettos? Saving them from Nazi Ovens. Was it wrong to save them from the Ovens? Would it have been better to leave them there to die with their parents? Even though just about every parent pleaded and begged that their child be rescued?
I have heard many so stories of one or two heroes rescuing large numbers of children in need of leading them to safety sometimes here in the United States. Were they wrong? Did they do more harm than good?
