We've received a gift from the Obama administration:
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Dozens of unaccompanied immigrant children are arriving in Portland from the US-Mexico border.
About 90 children, many from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, are expected to be in Portland later, according to the Portland Central America Solidarity Committee. Many non-profits are holding signs at SW 10th and Salmon to welcome them to Portland.
It's probably too much to ask that the sign-holders take these waifs into their own homes. Naah...their attitude's likely more aligned with those who support paying an additional fee for road maintenance - as long as somebody else is doing the paying.
As usual, the U.N. is unable to resist sticking its collective nose into America's business; they're calling for the waifs to be declared refugees. That seems reasonable; we can ship them over to the U.N.-run refugee camps in Africa, where they can be assured of receiving three meals a day:
For many Americans, 850 calories is roughly equivalent to an indulgent snack: a large bag of AMC movie theater popcorn or a chocolate-covered cheesecake blizzard at Dairy Queen. For refugees, however, it means they’re eating only three small bowls of rice and lentils each day.
United Nations announced it was cutting food rations in half to 850 calories a day for roughly 450,000 African war refugees.
They're doing such a bang-up job that they certainly are entitled to tell us how we should handle the latest invasion.
