    Or…no jobs at all… Its all about the resources needed to clothe, house, feed, etc. these illegal children. We Don’t Have the money!!! We can’t even take care of Our Own in the slums of LA, Chicago, NYC, Hartford, Miami, and other large cities, or even those in rural states such as MS, AL, GA, TN, and etc. What part of Have No Money do people not understand? What is so wrong about wanting to take care of Our Domestic crises First?! Flame away. I’m used to it… ;)

    ORMouse, maybe if you spoke more sense you wouldn’t have so many opportunities to roast marshmallows. There’s plenty of money sloshing around the great US of A! Just ask the Kochs, the Waltons, the Ellisons and the Gates. Trouble is, they’ve sucked it all up into their non-tax-paying maws and won’t put it back out into the economy.
    And arguably, these children should not be categorized as illegal but as refugees. I doubt you read the article I gave yo a link to yesterday, so I’ll summarize it for you: children are being murdered in large numbers in certain Central American countries. Out of desperation, their parents are sending them away to take their chances getting to the US, where they think there might be a better chance of not getting tortured and killed. If you are a parent, think about being in a situation where the only way you can think of to ensure your child survives to become an adult is to send them on a dangerous journey to a place where you may never see them again. Really, really think about that.
    Nobody’s asking people not to care about poverty in this country. There are all sorts of solutions for it, many of which involve spreading some of the obscene wealth held by the 0.1% around. But too many people are horrified at the idea that maybe it’s NOT okay for one person or one family to hoard so much. Hell, in other crises people’d be hung up by their thumbs for hoarding resources, but a lot of We the People seem to think it’s A-OK when, as you say, there is so much urban, rural, and (gasp!) suburban poverty. And a few thousand—even tens of thousands—of children won’t make a dent when you consider how large this country is.
    What we ARE asking is that you actually have a heart, have a human bone in your body, pay heed to Matthew 25: 31–46. What will you be? A sheep or a goat? A person who embraces their fellow humans or one who makes excuses?

    Apparently the difference between refugees and immigrants is that refugees are fleeing from danger, while immigrants are primarily heading towards a more desirable living situation (less dire).
    We have laws to help refugees, and laws to keep out illegal immigrants – Lalo, for some reason, selectively approves of one while dismissing the other.
    Today’s strip irresponsibly seems to convolute the two.
    Perhaps Americans would be more open to helping refugees if it weren’t for the influx of illegals that have already strained our resources.
    And it’s interesting that Mexico hasn’t stepped up to accept these refugees, despite the fact that its culture is much better suited to assimilate Hondurans than the U.S..
    It too has stopped the influx at its south border, yet we don’t see news of Mexican protestors regarding that.

    Hilarious, because if the refugees weren’t here, then you wouldn’t LIFT A FINGER to help poor American kids either. You’d be bitching about how you pay too much taxes to be paying for food stamps etc. so shut yer flame hole!

    Most of the children are fleeing from lethal danger.

    They are just selfish, cold hearted Libertarians.

    Oh my God, you actually responded! Get of you pedestal if these illegals weren’t of your ethnicity you wouldn’t be howling so loud. I have plenty of starving friends in the PI waiting to come to the USA and I don’t hear a peep out rich Latinos saying they should be green lighted. “Take care of your own first”, standard human nature.

    No they are people of other ethnicity that are patiently waiting for friends and family to get they visas. They feel cheated because of all the illegals cutting in line.

    Wow, how do you know who I root for? I support all immigrants. Slice that one up!

    @Lalo Alcaraz

    These kids are refugees, and anti-immigrant aholes are hypocrites, because they would never help American poor, EVEN IF THEY THEMSELVES ARE POOR! Talk about Know-Nothings!

    You’ve hit the nail on its proverbial head, Lalo. These right-wing goats (sorry goats, that’s how Jesus put it) are simply looking for any excuse to deny food to the hungry, shelter to the homeless, and comfort to the frightened. I would like for ORM, indie, Olongapo, and others of their ilk to explain exactly what they are doing, right now, to help other humans. And no, posting hateful inanities in comic strip comments doesn’t count; in fact, it’s negative points.

    Lalo, how much of your own cash are you donating to this? How do you expect the US citizen to pay for feeding these kids and educating them if they’re here for life? Have you taken any of these kids into your own home?

    dzw, you remain a certified idiot, one of the many village idiots who have managed to survive on the leavings of comic comments threads, talking out of both ends. What crap have I paid for you to survive? Give me back my road money! Stay in your own damn state! In fact, don’t leave from under that rock of yours, because I don’t want to have to pay for anything you might enjoy. You seem to be so eager to send young children to be tortured and shot to death, why don’t you get on the plane and fly them there yourself?

    Lalo, have always enjoyed your strip, and the fact that it draws the ire of all of these compassionate conservatives just makes it all the more enjoyable.
