RE: Immigrant children deserve security and compassion, Paul A. Long, Detroit Free Press, July 18, 2014, p. 13A.
Mr. Long is "President and CEO of the Michigan Catholic Conference, the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state." His op-ed piece in today's Free Press gushes with idiotic, puling sentimentality, like ". . . every human person, especially a child, is deserving of dignity." O.K. Even Central American drug lords? Even those responsible for the violence and chaos the children are trying to escape?
Here is a fact: The world is filled with miserable people. Their numbers increase apace, partly because the Catholic Church forbids the use of birth control. And now officials of that church want me to feel guilty because I do not wish to accept these extravagantly pullulating masses into the borders of my own country. Another fact: We Americans cannot alleviate the misery of the entire world. We could only share it. I do not wish to do that.
The children should be safely and legally returned to their countries of origin. Letting them stay will only encourage more illegal arrivals. Of course they should not be mistreated. They should be fed, clothed, de-loused and given souvenir t-shirts before we send them back. They are only pawns in a really weird game.
Which leads to the question: Who are the players? How do busloads of Central American children make their 1000 mile journeys through Mexico without anyone noticing? This is a "humanitarian crisis," as Long writes, but it a manufactured humanitarian crisis. People at very high levels (including President Obama) are complicit in the manufacturing.
Perhaps policy change should begin with a collective change of national heart, with people of good will expressing themselves in a manner that is civil and respectful . . .How's this: Bite it, bozo!
