While you may be concerned about the influx of thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants and the effect they will have on crime, disease rates, and the economy, Democrats are more concerned with how gay and transgender immigrants are being treated in custody. It’s good to know that, as usual, liberals are looking out for the country’s best interests.
In December, dozens of Democrats in Congress pushed Health and Human Services to go the extra mile when it came to protecting “gay illegal immigrant children.” Gay Illegal Immigrant Children: a new CBS sitcom coming this summer. But seriously, the Democrats want to make sure that these gay children are not only protected from abuse, but that the transgender children among them are housed according to their gender wishes.
Last month, an ICE official testified that transgender immigrants in detention were entitled to continue hormone therapy while in custody. “With respect to treatment while in detention,” he said, “the standards guarantees a right to hormone therapy for individuals who need it for treatment, and even in facilities that are no covered by that standard.”
In other words, break out your wallet and kiss your tax dollars goodbye. They will be serving a better purpose than you could ever put them to: buying drugs so that illegal aliens can successfully transition from one gender to the other. That’s incumbent on American responsibility, right? Not only must we forgive trespassers, but we must also give them the right to work. Give them the right to Social Security. Give them driver’s licenses. Make sure they can become a woman on a taxpayer’s dime.
There are no readily-available stats on how many transgender illegal aliens wind up in federal custody. It’s hard to imagine it’s an overwhelming number. According to the best estimates nationally, transgenders make up only a fraction of one percent of the population. How many illegal-alien-transgender-children are we talking about? How do liberals always manage to find the most insignificant issues around which to coalesce?
I know that times change, but can you imagine standing up at the Constitutional Convention to ask the Founding Fathers whether they will include provisions for transgender illegal aliens in the Constitution? We’ve flown so far away from the common sense of rational debate that it’s amazing we can even have discussions at all anymore.
Why stop there? Some illegal aliens could be addicted to drugs when picked up by ICE. Are we making sure they get their heroin while in custody? What about all those unaccompanied children who claim the “furry” lifestyle? Are they being provided with a Tumblr account and a pair of fox ears? I would hate to think that we are trampling civil rights.
Approximately 22 U.S. veterans commit suicide every day in this country, plagued by the demons of war. If we have so much extra money in the coffers that we can afford to help citizens of other countries make the transition from one sex to another, maybe we can solve that problem as well. Maybe we can run an “It Gets Better” campaign for them. You know, the people who actually did something heroic with their lives.
But no…those people are just “racist spree killers.” The illegal immigrants, the street thugs, and the transgenders are the real American heroes.
God, what a messed up time we live in.
