Regardless of how you feel about fixing the border conflict, exploiting the lives of children as pawns is nothing more than a radical leftist Saul Alinsky tactic, to push through an agenda that our representative democracy has rejected. Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, the playbook of Obama, Hillary Clinton and other liberal Democrats in power today, taught the left how to undermine the successful, brilliant, longstanding representative democracy this country was founded on, in order to accomplish their unpopular, unfair and historically discredited radical agenda.

Alinsky advocated using arguments that sound “moral” to trick people emotionally. Who could be against poor children? Is dumping illegal immigrant children in various states around the country instead of deporting them - separating them from their parents - moral? No, it is really despicable, since it exploits the children in order to shove through a radical open borders agenda.

Their so-called “compassion” is selective. Why not rescue all the poor children in the world and invite them to the U.S.? Of the 2.2 billion children worldwide, almost half, or 1 billion, live in poverty. The population of the U.S. is a little over 300 million, so there is no way the U.S. could possibly afford to take in and pay for all those children.

The left’s Illegal immigration defenders accuse Americans of being racist who do not want to allow the illegal immigrant “children” in the U.S. to remain … yet note the Obama administration is generally releasing teenagers who are mostly ages 15-17. If that’s true, then isn’t the left equally as racist for not helping children in the poorest countries too? The poorest countries in the world are predominantlylocated in Africa. These children are worse off than the primarily Hispanic illegal immigrant children who crossed over our southern border illegally.

An argument could be made that the left is racist against the poorer blacks; instead giving special preference to Hispanic children. But conservatives aren’t cold-blooded enough to demonize the left this way, being the real party of compassion. Conservatives generally prefer immigration policies that are spread out fairly across countries, not weighted in favor of certain countries (ethnicities or races) over others.
