To The Daily Sun,
We often hear demands to do things "for the children." When we hear of children being shot, stricter gun control laws are demanded. It's said "to save even one child's life" it's worth further limiting the freedoms of the American people, even with new laws that wouldn't have saved a single life.
But the politicians and media are selective in their concerns "for the children". If an American, who isn't a known criminal or gang member, shoots a child, even if current laws should have prevented the gun sale, then they demand restricting the rights of all Americans who use guns legally and responsibly.
But the politicians and media don't seem to care about the more normal situation when illegal aliens (or known criminals or gang members) kill children or other Americans. The number of illegal aliens alone incarcerated for homicide is surprisingly high, about 25,000 according to a 2011 GAO report (compare to 16,000 annual homicides).
Just enforcing our current immigration laws, requiring changes in policy but no additional funding, could significantly reduce the killings, rapes, kidnappings, robberies, brutalization, and other crimes against Americans, including children, without reducing the freedoms of law-abiding citizens.
Democrat and Republican establishment politicians apparently gain too much from illegal immigration to stop it, no matter how many American children and adults suffer. It's time to drive those politicians from office and replace them with people who will stop illegal immigration and save many thousands of Americans from harm.
