There is A LOT of misinformation trolling around Facebook and the internet under the guise of official media outlets that are simply partisan propaganda stages. Don’t fall for the hype.
Yes, we are somehow struggling with a real surge in illegal immigration lately. Yes, it is costing us taxpayers. And yes, it is probably being mishandled by our government, in the same spirit that FEMA mishandled Katrina or 9/11.
But that’s not fair to demonize the immigrants caught in the middle. WE STILL DONT KNOW WHY the surge is happening. I am shocked that no one is even bothering to ask. Or care.
Its funny how when poor people are exploited in the movies, we root for them and we cheer their protectors as heroes against an insensitive inhumane populist system. But in real life, we are that system, and we demonize those same victims.
This is a REAL problem. One that needs a real solution. We need to understand whats happening and why, in order to craft an efficient and comprehensive plan that is properly thought out. Otherwise, it will just be an expensive, inhumanely cruel backlash that just makes the problem worse.
I don’t have the answers yet. I don’t even have a grasp on what the cause is. We need to know more, and understand better. Ignorance is not bliss when humanity is at stake.
