I.C.E. Now Deems Illegal Alien Children ‘Unaccompanied’

U.S. southern border signNothing like semantics to confuse the masses. According to reports, I.C.E. is no longer using the term “Unaccompanied Alien Children” to refer to the stream of minor illegal aliens flooding across the Southern border.

The children have commonly been referred to as “unaccompanied alien children,” or “UACs.” With the new directive, laid out in a June 4 email, both terms will be dropped and replaced with “unaccompanied children.”

How harmless and sad it seems if one were to come across an unaccompanied child.  It brings images of lost children in grocery stores or kids lost in the woods. Who wouldn’t want to take them in and help them find their parents?

Americans, by and large, would like to do the same for these kids. Find their parents and send their children back to them – in the countries they came from. In fact, 2-out-of-3 Americans polled disapprove of Obama’s handling of the alien child flood.

Why take “alien” out of the classification? Will children found without adults be given the same treatment as children crossing the border without parents? Distinction and definition is important.

Had the parents applied for American citizenship and gone through the standard process, they would likely be receiving their citizenship like those in the ceremony that Obama attended today. Their children would not have had to risk their lives to go it alone.

Obama’s failure to lead on the issue is putting lives at risk and creating a national security nightmare. Simply re-classifying the problem does not make it go away.

  1. The Progressive becomes upset when you accuse him of his liberal views being a sign of a mental disorder. Well, check your talking points Mr. Progressive. “An illegal alien isn’t really illegal.”

    That is your stance. So if you are going to utter such an anti reason then how do you expect to be treated with any sort of regard for rational thought? For logic?

    Let’s see what are your other defenses for the illegal invader who breaks our laws crossing our border in the night.

    “You’re a racist.” Ah, brilliant. That does take some thought doesn’t it? No matter what, no matter how illogical you are shown to be you can always throw out the race card. Talk louder and faster in angered tone and call us racists. Yet we don’t have a problem with legal immigrants. But we are still racists, per the intellect of Progressive thought.

    “Where did your ancestors come from?” Another well thought out adage of anti reason Mr. Progressive. You see that bait and switch is ridiculous as well. My ancestors came from Poland. Legally. And they learned English and got jobs. The border jumper is illegal. That would be the common sense rebuttal. But the liberal doesn’t understand common sense.

    “They were here first.” Well not really. You see the ones left after the Mexican-American war stayed and generations passed. The illegal came from Mexico. He wasn’t here first. He was from down south in another country. As that war was centuries ago.

    “They do the jobs we don’t want.” Ok fair enough. Let’s decrease welfare which would solve that problem. Oh that’s right, you champion American entitlement parasites as well with your anti reason.

    “No human is illegal.” I have no comment for that one. Check the stupid definition in Websters.

    If we continue this line of thought we will fall as a nation as my own fiction predicts as no nation that leaves borders open will survive. When we return to reason and common sense and ignore the above imbecilic arguments only then will we have a prayer of restoring America.

    A rose is a rose by any other name is still a rose….and this is ‘invasion’ is wrong from any/all angle. Yes, these are children….and sadly the ‘sins of the father’ put them in this predicament….NOT the USA…I’m a firm believer that OUR “laws of the Land must be followed and “Charity begins at home”

    Martha Raddics(ABC) told Rick Perry this am that Obama is doing something to stop it…”he’s advertising for them not to come” and Biden told central American leaders not to send them…..” WOW hope he (BHO) didn’t miss T time!!!
