Univision anchor: No government should be in the business of deporting children « Hot Air

Say this for the guy, though. At least he’s honest, calling for amnesty for the kids outright instead of jerking around with phony “due process” arguments designed to wreck the system so that they have amnesty in practice but informally. Exit question: If governments shouldn’t be in the business of deporting children, Mexico should go ahead and amnestize all the Central American kids currently waiting near its northern border to cross into Texas, right?

No government should export its kids, either.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I agree that not one tax dollar should be spent on deporting the invading army. Instead, American citizens should start shooting the little bastards.

    And maybe the American citizenry should think about shooting the officials, elected and appointed, who let a foreign army invade without firing a shot.

    • …American citizens should start shooting the little bastards.

      Once upon a time, I used to believe that it would be a disgraceful, terrible thing that this might begin happening along the U.S./Mexican border. As time and events have played out, however, I’ve reached the point that I think it may well come to be a disgraceful, terrible thing if this does not begin happening along that border…

      Pretty sad, isn’t it? – That the end-solution that may well be applied to effectively seal that border, is to establish and maintain – for however long is apparently required – a “free-fire zone” along the U.S. side of the border, with only narrow, easily- and thoroughly-policed entry/exit corridors at certain heavily-militarized, clearly designated points.

      …maybe the American citizenry should think about shooting the officials, elected and appointed, who let a foreign army invade without firing a shot.

      Try, convict and execute the top-end ones, for some sort of “crimes against the citizenry”, a couple of levels down – bankrupt and jail the rest, at hard labor, for “followink orderz” (all-too-willingly, in most cases); only let ‘em out on “permanent probation”, denying them the right to vote, the ability to hold any sort of public office, elective or appointed, and any possibility of receiving any sort of assistance from taxpayer “revenue” funding. If they are released and comply with the probation rules, let ‘em work at whatever low-end employment they can find, and live out their days that way – as wage-“slaves”, providing their own subsistence.

  2. It was formerly my understanding that “import/export trade” in humans by State actors, whether by direct intent or by laissez-faire means, was legally classified as “slave-trading” – or, in the case of minor children, “child slavery”…

    This is, in reality, what the Government of Mexico has been engaged in – sometimes actively, always at least passively – for well over half a century, now. If that was not true, they would have moved to halt or at least measurably-reduce the huge annual flow of “remittances” from the U.S., which annually benefits the Mexican national pocketbook substantially, and which is a major enabling creature of the Southern border invasion.

    Of course, “border-law enforcement” and “Mexican government” can appear (as I just wrote them) in the same sentence together, but they really have nothing to do with each other otherwise.
