Sometimes the truth hurts however what can hurt more is the messenger. While we might not know exactly the President’s motivation for pushing through immigration reform, like everything else he has done, it is easy to see this latest push is for appealing to the Hispanic voting community.
But as Houston resident Bernadette Lancelin told My Fox Houston 26, she is very upset that the unaccompanied minors who are flooding the borders are not being sent back home.
Lancelin, a mother herself, was obviously upset at the President promising billions of dollars to take care of the illegal children and their families.
First heard nationally today on The Rush Limbaugh Show, the audio of Lancelin telling the Fox26 reporter, “What about the kids here? In our neighborhood? In our country? Not just in this neighborhood but in our country. All these kids? Really? Why can’t they go back?
I’m sorry that their parents are in poor living conditions or surroundings or whatever’s going on out there. I don’t care.
I care about what’s going on right here in my own back yard, my neighborhood. Am i the only one in this community that’s out here that watches the news this morning.
Oh, my god! I feel alone right now this this, and I’m very saddened by it.”
President Obama himself might be at a border crossing amongst his own voting base and in the near distant future might have to decide whose vote he values more.
