U.S. Government Official Steven Wagner, the acting secretary of Health and Human Services should propose giving lessons to the rest of us about exactly how to achieve those numbers, especially after disclosing to a Senate “homeland security” subcommittee that the agency only learned of its missing children when it placed calls to persons taking responsibility for them. Now 1500 (1475 to be exact) such losses (after all, they’re only children) is already quite an achievement. And as such future “losses” are planned, it’s a good idea to buckle up for a major Losing Workshop.
How do you “lose” 1500 children (1475 to be exact)? Various effective methods could be proposed. First of all the Border is a mine field. You have all those fresh, unaccompanied minors. These kids need to be lost. Aren’t they suffering from the violence and orphaning that drug cartels and gangs have imposed on them or their parents, rendering them desperate and unfit for the American lifestyle?? And they travel here on the roofs of freight trains. So no loss there. So far so good, wouldn’t you agree?
Or kids whose parents are so desperate for their children to see a better life, but too poor or desperate to accompany them, well, surely we wouldn’t want a class of people that poor interfering with the American dream, now would we?
And anyway, these kids are a real bother: the expense of incarcerating them before turning them over to approved sponsors who can sodomize them, before returning them to clog the deportation courts because they speak Spanish, or some obscure Indian dialect, and no lawyer represents them. Even if they can’t understand a word of what’s being done to them, chaining them together, and banging a gavel each time costs MONEY.
Now how about if people like that get to stay in the land of opportunity — like the 8 kids who were indentured to work on an egg farm in Marion, Ohio? They could be stealing the vote right now for the Republicrats.
Which is why this morning’s mail includes the 2018 National Illegal Alien Election Survey which suggests that the integrity of my sacred, all-American voting rights have been jeopardized — no, not by caging practices, or hacking the Republican-owned voting machines, or denying the vote to felons who have served their time, and not by Facebook’s manipulations of people discouraging them to vote — but by ALL THOSE ILLEGAL ALIENS who just keep on voting all the time. Which is why we need to punish them as much as possible, and separate them from their families, and hate them for skins less White than ours. Wouldn’t you agree?
Well shucks, Health & Human Services has a limited budget.
How can you expect them to spend money tracking the welfare of vulnerable unaccompanied minors all the time…especially when other agencies need to fly on private jets, eat off $31,000 dining sets, and christen $4.4 billion Bath Ironworks battle ships with champagne so the U.S. Mediterranean Fleet can keep bombing countries Israel doesn’t like — like maybe Syria and Iran.

Sister Joan Chittister, O.S.B. sums up the hypocrisy of many in the ‘pro-life’ movement:”I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there.
