Masses of people around the world are on the move. In the US these masses are coming in from Mexico, Central America, South America, China, the Middle East, and Africa. In Europe these masses are coming in from Syria and other Mid Eastern countries. And all of these human masses have one thing in common. They are ESCAPING!
These masses of humanity are coming into the US and Europe in a last-ditch effort to escape the chaos, war, terrorism, and criminal activity in their homelands. They are all in search of better lives and more peaceful lives in a place where they can raise their families in safety. These people are desperate!
The Middle East is a hornet’s nest. South of our border in the US is another hornet’s nest. Normal people don’t want to live under tyranny. They don’t want to live in a place where criminals rule be they drug cartels or ruthless dictators. They don’t want to live in places where they don’t know if tomorrow they and their families will wake up safe and secure or be the victims of some lunatics terrorist action. They don’t want to be enslaved by these thugs. They don’t want to be victims of such thuggery! Like all the rest of us they simply want peaceful and safe lives. How can we condemn them for that?
Today Pope Francis called for Christians to take into their homes, parishes, monasteries, and convents the masses of refugees fleeing the Mid East seeking refuge in Europe. The Vatican itself is taking in 2 families setting the example. FINALLY the church puts its words into ACTION! We’ve had more than enough lip service from the Vatican over the years. But, still, this is only a temporary solution and I’m pretty sure the Pope will call on Americans to do the same when he visits the US later this month. Again, it will only be a temporary solution.
Nothing short of regime change in these corrupt nations will suffice! These masses of humanity are fleeing countries that are notorious for corruption that’s gone on for decades. This is true both in Latin American countries and Mid Eastern countries. We can bitch and complain about all these “illegal immigrants” all we want but it doesn’t solve the problem because the PROBLEM begins in the nations they are trying to flee from! Trust me, the tyrants who run these corrupt nations are more than happy to see the discontent leave because they know that as long as they are leaving the threat they pose to the tyrant is reduced. Should they stay in their homelands they would surely explode into revolution and that is the absolute last thing any tyrant wants. So they let these people go and sometimes they even provide ways for them to go.
If all the discontents stayed in Central America, for example, every corrupt dictator in the region would know their own days are numbered. They would anticipate mass revolt anytime. But as long as those who are unhappy are leaving their nations they have little to worry about in terms of mass revolt.
Solving the illegal immigration problem in the US and Europe isn’t about rounding them all up ans shipping them back to where they came from. It’s about regime change! These tyrannical dictators in both regions need to be ousted and replaced by real leaders who are not thugs! People don’t want to live under tyranny! The solution is to eliminate the tyrant and tyranny! Regime change and economic development in those countries will equal jobs, better lives, and security. The EXACT things the masses on the move are seeking today!!
