As the debate over what to do with the tens of thousands of unaccompanied undocumented Central American children rages on, folks in Maryland have decided to fight back by spray painting “NO ILLEAGLES HERE” on a building that was considered as a possible shelter for undocumented immigrant children.
The Obama administration is standing by its word to send unaccompanied minors back to where they came from, but for some folks in Maryland, it isn’t fast enough.
Last week the president asked Congress for $3.7 billion in federal funds to deal with the crisis and add more border patrol agents and judges to expedite deportations. And on Monday, the Obama administration sent back an initial wave of undocumented immigrants from Honduras – including children. The immigrants were deported from a U.S. detention center in New Mexico. Soon after they got the boot, Homeland Security announced that additional migrants will be returned to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in the coming days and weeks.
Not good enough for Maryland. After word got out that a building in Westminster, Maryland was being considered as a facility to house some of the immigrant children who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in an attempt to flee violence, economic collapse and instability in their home countries, anti-immigrant vandals emerged, scribbling “No illeagles here. No undocumented Democrats” on the one-story brick building.
First, the spray paint is probably what’s making eagles sick in the first place. Second, your message to keep Spanish-speaking foreigners out of America might be a little more impactful if you yourself could speak English. Or is that ‘Murican speek?
