kind of sounds like something a liberal would say.
While we have a conservative administration that wants to make sure all children don't have health care because that would be a socialist welfare program at the tax payers expense?

Well I am welcoming these children into my home as it stands now. Believe me I've been helping our "American" children for years and will continue to do so. But see a need, fill a need. From experience it is realitivly easy to teach a child english. Funny Americans think they are better than others, and most of us don't speak a second language. These kids will probably be no more of a drain on our school systems than those with an IQ below 70 who are placed in normal classrooms.

Are we doing our part in helping american children? Children in this country are not treated too well. Look at all the kids that don't have health care coverage. Look at all the sick @#$% who are into child porn and abusing our children. We have parents who shouldn't be parents. My understanding, inter-city schools can't get support from the parents, because many of them are high school drop outs. The kids are the ones who are really suffering. We need to do our part.

America is accepting this refugees because the church's tithes are declining. They couldn't figure it out, therefore this must fill as quickly as possible. America put them stateless people, so US is responsible for what they did wrong. As long as they don't get involved in Burma's politics the people of Myanmar will not suffer. US is the culprit to take care of those people.

I just wish these people would learn english and to know how to do laundry without breaking the damn machine every week. I live right next these folks and they breed like rats, im kinda worried about the population and the jobs; therefore, no more out-sourcing, FOLKS!
