Will Obama ever learn that charity begins at home?

For two decades, millions of illegals have crossed our borders and now another invasion by children from Latin American countries is underway. President Barack Obama and the suits in Washington, D.C., argue about a solution and the net result as usual is nothing is done.

Whether they are adults or children who enter America in violation of existing laws has nothing to do with compassion. They contribute no skills and are added to a welfare state that is broke. It is a socio-economic crisis that adds to domestic and foreign challenges that can and will not be paid for regardless of any political resolutions.

If any reader believes I lack compassion for these illegals, it is true. My compassion lies in resolving America’s problems first. From welfare and unemployment to a worldwide threat to bring this country down, illegal immigration prevents our resources from solving America’s problems and all else is secondary.

Mr. Obama has requested $3.7 billion, which he submits is for judges to hear cases and for help for the children. Not a word that these children, regardless of age, have broken existing immigration laws. That $3.7 billion should be directed toward American orphans who through no fault of their own need help.

Thus the old adage, “charity begins at home.”
