Study: Immigration enforcement gives illegal aliens PTSD


Would it surprise you to learn that there is not just one or two but dozens of studies examining the psychological effects of enforcing the law against illegal aliens? Apparently, enforcing immigration law causes all kinds of effects on illegal aliens; it makes them anxious, depressed, and, according to one study, victims of post traumatic stress disorder.

In a study entitled, "Trauma and psychological distress in Latino citizen children following parental detention and deportation", researchers found:

This study examines posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms and psychological distress among 91 Latino U.S.-born children (ages 6 to 12), living in mixed-status families with a least 1 undocumented parent at risk for detention or deportation. Analyses indicate that PTSD symptoms as reported by parent were significantly higher for children of detained and deported parents compared to citizen children whose parents were either legal permanent residents or undocumented without prior contact with immigration enforcement. Similarly, findings revealed differences in child internalizing problems associated with parental detention and deportation as reported by parent as well as differences in overall child functioning as reported by clinician.

This study raises a lot of questions.

1) If their parents hadn't entered the country illegally, would these children still have PTSD?

2) Would the children's mental health be improved if we stopped enforcing all immigration laws?

3) What about children of criminals? They must experience the same anxiety. Should we stop arresting violent criminals on the same grounds?

4) This study and the others like it fail to explore anxiety on the part of Americans caused by illegal aliens. Where is the study of children whose parents were negligently killed by a drunk driving illegal alien or actively murdered by MS-13?

5) Where is the study of the effect on children whose parents lost jobs that went to illegal aliens, or the effect on children who didn't get into college because those slots were taken by illegal aliens?

6) Where is the study of the effect on American children in schools where a mass influx of foreign, non-English speaking students, disrupt the ability of children to learn?

7) Where is the study of psychologists to discover why they are so concerned with the psychological well being of children in the country illegally but so unconcerned about the same effects on American children?

8) PTSD is defined as "a mental disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event, such as sexual assault, warfare, traffic collisions, or other threats on a person's life." How can returning someone to their country of origin be compared to soldiers exposed to death and destruction in war?

Psychology is just another propaganda tool that the Left is using to push its agenda. The Left largely control the media, the schools, many trade associations, and now mental health professionals. Is there anything they don't yet control?

New budget allocates no money for border wall for two years


In addition to being a an enormously bloated deficit busting spending bill, the two year budget that President Trump signed allocates zero dollars for construction of a border wall for the next two years. So unless Mexico suddenly writes us a check, there will be not an inch constructed of a new border wall three full years into President Trump's term of office.

Imagine if you were poor and you got Medicaid, heavily subsidized by the taxpayer, but you had to pay between $1 and $15 a month in premiums. Wouldn't that be confusing? For many people it is so confusing that they don't understand how to pay and end up being kicked off Medicaid.

If Rand Paul were President, we wouldn't have this Democratic-inspired budget


Senator Rand Paul succeeded in briefly shutting down the government last night when he demanded a vote on restoring the budget spending caps before voting on the GOP deficit busting bill. By the time you read this, however, it is expected that a coalition of Democrats and RINO Republicans will have succeeded in passing a monstrosity of a budget bill which, although it will increase defense spending, will also increase domestic spending by hundreds of billions of dollars over the coming years, and is estimated to create a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit in 2019. That's $1,200,000,000,000 added to the debt in one year alone.

The budget agreement reached by the Republican House and Republican Senate would increase spending over 500 billion dollars over the next two years. It does not appear to cut a penny from domestic spending; in fact, along with military increases, it increases domestic spending by hundreds of billions of dollars.

Would "Black Panther" have a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score if it were "White Panther"?


The liberal media is going ga-ga over the upcoming superhero movie "Black Panther". What makes Black Panther different from other Marvel films is that the protagonist, as well as most of the cast, are black, and Africa is portrayed as a super technologically advanced continent filled with spaceships. As of this writing the film has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. What are the odds of every single film reviewer agreeing on this film... or any film?
