If we’ve learned anything by this point it’s that complaints about the ill effects of illegal immigration will be met with a fierce defense by Democrats and their liberal media allies — the objective being to shut down all debate over what’s come to be a burden on the country.
“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade saw the effects of this Wednesday when he spoke about illegal immigrants who don’t speak English being “dumped” in working class schools.
Kilmeade made the comment in a segment focused on President Trump threatening to shut down the southern border as Border Patrol has been overwhelmed by an endless wave of illegal immigrants, many of them women and children from Central America, with reports of a massive caravan heading our way.
Casey Diaz, a former gang member, was featured and he warned “a lot of gangs” like MS-13 take advantage of the caravans to enter the U.S.
“By the way, it’s not just border cities, Ainsley,” Kilmeade would then say. “They dump these illegals in areas, and President Obama did it with those unaccompanied minors, in working class areas without telling mayors or governors.”
“Next thing you know, you’re sitting there and your kids come home from school, and there’s 10 extra kids in the school, and they don’t speak English,” he added. “So, that’s what happens. They fan out across the country.”
Schools unexpectedly having to take in students who don’t speak English disrupts the education of American students when the schools are unprepared, which could be the point Kilmeade was trying to make.
But the liberal media pointed to his use of the term “illegals” to describe illegal aliens, the official government term for those in the U.S. illegally.
Mediaite said that illegals is “a dehumanizing term that is considered a slur by many immigrants and their allies.” The online news site talks about the “mixing” of the students as well — interpret that as you will.
The trouble here is the media intentionally conflates legal and illegal immigration.
And while they tout respect for those who eschew our laws, they pay little attention to schools with large illegal alien populations being forced to spend billions of dollars on special programs for students with limited English proficiency, or the overall cost to the nation.
They also downplay the violent MS-13 gang bringing its terror and recruiting tactics to middle schools in America.
Schools like William Wirt Middle School in Riverdale, Md., where the gang sells drugs, draws pro-MS-13 graffiti, and recruits Central America immigrants who have fled their respective countries because of the brutal gang.
Or the incident in Rockville, Md., where a 14-year-old girl was brutally raped by two illegal immigrants placed in the 9th grade – never mind that the students were 17 and 18 years old.
But whatever you do, don’t disrespect those who fail to respect our immigration laws by calling them “illegals.”
