    He doesn’t want to send them back.
    Instead, he wants 4 BILLION of our hard earned tax money to clothe, feed and house them.
    I told ya!!!!
    Oh ya, he couldn’t forget to grease his lawyer friends either.

    ’Cuse me? Payne sees people besides Obama to blame for the State of the Nation?
    Lord, may this progress extend to our Supreme Catholic Court as well.

    Since you neglected to post a link, I’ll try to help out. (Of course, $4 is an exaggeration, it’s only $3.7 billion. Sorry, I guess you were just roundin’ ‘em up?)

    And for those who forgot, Elián González was a Cuban boy whose mother attempted to get away from his father in ’99, but she died in the attempt. Then some wanted to give Elián asylum in the US, but the Clinton administration said he HAD to be returned to his father, and he was seized from his US-citizen relatives by Federal agents and sent back. While here, he said he wanted to stay. Now that he’s back in Cuba, he says he’s glad to be back.

    That is hilarious. I mean, why can’t our president just go above the law and illegally send the children back without a hearing? Who could possibly complain about that?
    And you completely misunderstood the cartoon. The driver is not Obama. One clue is that she’s an anglo woman. Payne is jabbing at conservatives who were so eager to separate Elian Gonzalez from his family in Cuba, but opposed to uniting the current children with their state-side relatives.

    You don’t see Payne criticize the right very often.

    There is a difference between one person coming in and an unlimited number of people crossing a non-existent border.

    That was one child, who mother died to bring him here. These are children abandoned, don’t see the similarity.

    These are not abandoned children. They are children whose homes are so dangerous that their parents are willing to send them elsewhere, because they believe that anywhere else under any circumstances will be safer.

    Are you a parent? Wouldn’t it take an awful lot to convince you to send your child hundreds of miles away to an unknown fate?

    Although the conditions behind these refugees and Elian Gonzalez are certainly different, the ’toon is spot on in spotlighting the hypocrisy of a large percentage of the population.

    Reminds me of families sending their sons to Canada during the Viet Nam War to protect them.

    Either you are not a parent, or you have no parental instincts.

    How much did the human trafficing /drug cartels/oranized crime lords get to bring the kids from central america/gang bangers/chinese/middle easterners to the border?
    How about a bounty for the coyote’s dead or alive?
    Who is putting the adds on TV down there?
    “Send your kids to America.They will be made citizens then the parents can follow.”
