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.
It’s not right. Now billions of dollars want to be borrowed from the White House to help feed and house them.
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?
I’m sorry that their parents are in poor living conditions or surroundings or whatever’s going on out there. I don’t care.
I care about what’s going on right here in my own back yard, my neighborhood.

BLACK PROTESTERS in Murrieta Confront Pro-Illegal Immigrant Supporters
POSTED BY JIM HOFT ON MONDAY, JULY 7, 2014, 12:39 PM
A group of black Americans spoke out in support of protecting women and children in America BEFORE worrying about the rest of the world. This occurred at the Murrieta California Border Patrol Station on July 4th, 2014.
The young man pictured below said this:
“If somebody brought six children to your house and you ain’t got no job, are you going to take them in?… Are you going to try to find out where they came from? Are you going to try to send them back?… What are we going to do for the people who are here who are starving already?…Why would we add to the problem?”
The woman below added:
“It’s just too much. We already got starvation, kids walking without with no shoes. We are already taking that on in America. We don’t need other people’s kids to bring more problems.”
The debate starts around the 1:40 mark in the video when the black Americans confronted the illegal immigrant protesters.
“What are we going to do for the people who are here who are starving already?”
