I feel like we are in the early stages of a humanitarian crisis in the United States on our southern border. Yet, it isn’t the early stages. Apparently it has been going on for a few months now, and the mainstream media (CNN, Foxnews) have left it on the back burner. If the story exists on their website, it is hidden out of view of the front page. I admit that I can’t watch the news during the day because I work. So I don’t know if they are covering this on the TV side of the network. But it definitely isn’t getting any attention on their internet platforms. So, I am going to post a link on the blog here so that everyone can do some reading on what is going on.
As a Christian I am concerned for the well-being of these kids. I am heart-broken and torn. I am sad that their own country is so bad that they were sent on such a journey, many of them alone, in order to come to the United States. On that point I am glad that they made it here alive and hopefully unhurt.
But, I do wonder why they are suddenly all coming here. Central America isn’t any worse now than 10 years ago. The reason must be that the people in charge of upholding the laws in this country are not doing their job. And that is the executive branch of our government.
Why would they want to stop this? If the Democrats in charge can make all these immigrants believe that Democrats are their savior, then they will have votes for years to come once they grant them amnesty and citizenship. Yes, that will happen. It is inevitable. See, now that it is happening the Republican leadership can’t be outdone as the saviors. So, they have to stall long enough to try to win the majority in the Senate and then pass the legislation before the Democrats can.
So here we are. Now, I don’t have anything against immigration personally. Immigrants built this nation. The problem is that we can’t have large new population groups coming in by the thousands who believe that socialism is the correct form of governance. If this becomes a humanitarian crisis, then all these children are going to be raised by the government dollar and by nature will expect that assistance for years to come. If you need proof of this just look at the number of life long assistance U.S. citizens that already live in this country.
Maybe this is why many Bible scholars say that they can’t definitively find mention of a super power from the west in end times prophecies.
