Bernadette Lancelin is very upset that the unaccompanied minors flooding across the border aren’t being sent back home. Instead they are being put in detention centers around the country. Lancelin is out with the local news in Houston because a closed middle school that hasn’t been used in years is now on the list to become another detention center. And she, among others, is furious about it.
“What about the kids here? In our neighborhood? In our country? Not just in this neighborhood but in our country.
“All these kids? Really? Why can’t they go back?
“Am i the only one in this community that’s out here that watches the news this morning. Oh, my god! I feel alone right now this this, and I’m very saddened by it.”

Wow, Tulsa Today (est. 1996) is the oldest online independent local news service in the world, but we could obviously learn more about self-promotion from The Right Scoop and maybe we could teach them to write. Or maybe not. In Houston; who would notice.
On the issue of immigration, President Obama doesn’t believe it necessary to maintain our borders. He agrees with his most significant financial patron, George Soros who advocates “Open Borders” – let anyone in and all vote from wherever whenever they may come.
Soros, the multibillionaire hedge fund trader, has already crashed multiple national currencies, but he is the critical funding source for many Leftist media and political outreach programs.
Further up the journalism ladder, The Wall Street Journal has an interesting piece by Peggy Noonan that begins:
What is happening at the southern border is a true and actual crisis. News accounts justly use words like chaos, collapse and breakdown. They feature images of children—toddlers, 4- and 5-year-olds—being shuffled to warehouse holding centers, sleeping crowded at night on what look like pallets, covered only in Mylar blankets. “I never thought we’d have refugee camps in America,” said Texas Sen. John Cornyn, “but that’s what it’s appearing.”
All this gives normal people a feeling of besiegement and foreboding. Is a nation without borders a nation? Washington’s leaders seem to recognize what’s happening as a political problem, not a real problem. That is, they betray no honest alarm. They just sort of stand in clusters and say things.
There seem only two groups that view the situation with appropriate alarm.
One is the children themselves, dragged through deserts to be deposited here. To them, everything is a swirl of lights, color and clamor, and shouting and clanking. A reporter touring a detainment center in Texas noted a blank, lost look among some of the younger children. Every mother knows what that suggests. Children who cry and wail anticipate comfort: That’s why they’re crying, to alert those who care for them that something is wrong. But little children who are blank, withdrawn, who don’t show or at some point know what they’re feeling—those children are in trouble.
The other group feeling a proper alarm is normal Americans, who are seeing all this on TV and who judge they are witnessing a level of lawlessness that has terrible implications for the country.
This is how I think normal people are experiencing what is happening:
