Our definition of child abuse is pretty broad. We lock up parents for leaving their children in overheated or unheated cars, for refusing to vaccinate, for leaving drugs around the house, and a host of other dangerous behaviors that put kids’ lives at risk.
In the immigration category you will find posts about the failure of our government to enforce the law and the consequences of doing nothing while holding out for a sweeping immigration juggernaut that Democrats and Republicans will never be able to agree on.
Federal Government spends while states lure illegals over the border
Few things showcase the insanity of our immigration policies better than spending billions on border security policies at the federal level while states pass laws that lure illegal immigrants to the U.S. The right to drive, resident college tuition and financial aid, and assurances of protection from law enforcement all add to the promise of a better life in America funded by taxpayers.
