Congressman exposes truth behind illegal kids

Fact-finding mission finds children definitely NOT 'refugees'

WASHINGTON – As the only member of Congress to serve in both Vietnam and Iraq, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., knows what a dysfunctional country looks like.

He has seen his share of suffering an squalor during 27 years of service in the U.S. Army and National Guard, and after evacuating from the surge in Iraq in 2007 with a neck wound.

On Monday, Bentivolio had just returned from a three-day fact-finding trip to Central America to see the source of the immigration crisis for himself.

The congressman told WND that conditions in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are certainly not great and there is much hardship, but they are not war zones.

As for the recent avalanche of immigrants?

“I really wouldn’t call them refugees,” said Bentivolio, while also expressing great sympathy for their plight.

He noted, “Our kids are facing similar problems. We have to put our own house in order first.”

The congressman said the children he saw in Central America do indeed have dangerous schools in dangerous cities and have few job prospects. But so do many children in the United States.

The immigration problem really boils down to this, said Bentivolio: “Democrats want the votes, and the Republicans want the cheap labor.”

The Michigander has a unique perspective on both parties, as evidenced by a wall of his office. One side is a tribute to President Ronald Reagan. The other side salutes President John F. Kennedy.

He admires both men for their commitment to the American dream and believes JFK would be a Republican if he were alive today.

The congressman laments, “Democrats today no longer, ‘ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.’ Democrats today are all ‘me, me, me, and gimmee, gimmee, gimmee.’”

Bentivolio believes the U.S. must fix its own economic woes before it can help Central Americans.

“The American dream should be for all the children in the Americas, but we need to lead by example,” he said, mentioning that America’s own children need hope, themselves.

“They say the immigrants are leaving because of few job opportunities. Well, look what is happening here,” he said, referring to the record number of Americans, 92,120,000 in June, who did not participate in the labor force.

“We have kids here with the same problems, kids not getting an education and with few job prospects.”

whatever they are there's a nursing home that was closed down in upstate New York ( for violations) and they're looking at putting a bunch of them in that facility but they wanted to make sure they have enough staff to take care of them there are tons of kitchens in rooms and apartments.

Kennedy a republican give me a break that goes to show how out of touch with the TP agenda you are.

Ronald Reagan could not get the nomination with today's TP republican agenda. He would change back to democrat.

Break anything you please, the Tea Party exemplifies everything Ronald Reagan stood for:

TEA PARTY AGENDA

1. Illegal aliens are here illegally.
2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable.
3. A strong military is essential.
4. Special interests must be eliminated.
5. Gun ownership is sacred.
6. Government must be downsized.
7. The national budget must be balanced.
8. Deficit spending must end.
9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal.
10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must.
11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory.
12. Political offices must be available to average citizens.
13. Intrusive government must be stopped.
14. English as our core language is required.
15. Traditional family values are encouraged.

John F. Kennedy would embrace today's Tea Party. He and Bobby Kennedy would both throw rocks at the platform of the Democrats.

Abortion
Homosexuality
Run-away Spending...

No way would they have even considered it.
