Actress America Ferrera and other Hollywood bleeding heart liberals toured a migrant shelter last weekend at the Mexican border city of Tijuana.
Ferrera gained fame on the show “Ugly Betty”. She obviously hasn’t taken the time to look at the statistics and truth of why these Central Americans are coming to our border. She claims they want to start a new life in America but that’s not reason enough for them to receive asylum in the U.S.
The overwhelming majority of these people are economic migrants and NOT refugees who are supposed to have a “credible fear” of going back to their home country.
THIS IS WHERE WE ARE GOING WITH ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: ONE MILLION ARE COMING AND AT LEAST 60% WILL STAY INDEFINITELY!
A FEW FACTS ON ECONOMIC MIGRATION:
America Ferrera and Alicia Keys below:
Ferrera’s parents are from Honduras like many of the illegals so she feels a connection to them. She’s doing what the left always does by leading with her emotions and not the facts:
“It is easy for me to look at these human beings and see myself. This could very easily have been my reality in this lifetime.”
“How dire would my situation have to be to grab this brand new child and walk for a month, with no access to clean water and food, not knowing what I would meet along the way, to try and seek asylum and safety and refuge because my situation was so bad?”
When these limousine liberals make a show of support for non-citizens, they are putting legal Americans last. Money is being sucked out of budgets in the U.S. to pay for illegals who come and want services. A report was just released today that $45 million had been allocated just for medical assistance for illegals. That money could have been used for our own citizens!
Washington Examiner reports:
The Department of Homeland Security, the agency tasked with caring for undocumented immigrants immediately after they are apprehended, has diverted $45 million in operational funds to go toward medical costs over the past five years, according to data obtained by the Washington Examiner.
The U.S. Border Patrol has diverted $9 million in operational funding in the fiscal year 2019, as it has done in each of the four previous years, to instead cover medical screenings and related services for thousands of immigrants.

A group called Families Belong Together was the host for the event where actresses like Kerry Washington said they are “doing Gods work”.
How is it “Gods work” to neglect our own needy people who are legal citizens?
#Kerracters@kerrywashington & many more spent Saturday at the border. #FamiliesBelongTogether
