Have you heard this tragic story that is happening now in the United States? It is not being shown on many of stations.
It may be a surprise to those of you who don’t watch Bill O’Riley to see that his show does present both sides of very hard issues.
My heart breaks for these children and I remember my 7 years teaching in Arizona, but I also know that we are a country of laws and I reject the anarchy of disregarding and obeying laws. This is a picture taken this week in Mexico of a north bound train. The title is “American Dream Here We Come! This reminds me of pictures of Indian people riding on the tops of trains, but in the 1940s, Gandhi’s time.
A small rural town in Virginia came together to talk down the administration about sending a huge group of teenage boys to their town to be housed in an empty college campus. The governor of Massachusetts, Duval Patrick, a close friend with the president, was slated to receive some of the children without being consulted or asked.
Sending the children to school sounds like an easy option but it is challenging. Teachers are used to teaching all public school children, but most of the immigrant children no matter their age have never been to school nor have their parents. That means beginning at the beginning. . . .
I remember especially in 2005-2007 driving to school and seeing men standing on the corners waiting to be picked up for day labor. They live in flop houses with many others and send the money back to their families in Mexico.
What about the governments of Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and Dominican Republic? Don’t they have responsibility for their own citizens? I would love to hear your reactions to this story. Have you heard of this situation in the US? What do you think should be done?
