Last night Jon Stewart visited the situation with the 52,000 kids — most of them escaping poverty and violence in Central America — who have been picked up trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border since October. Stewart then addressed the Americans wondering why we can't just deport these children: "Well, first of all, what the fuck is wrong with you? These are children, why would you even ask that? And second of all, good question."
The answer, it seems, is that President George W. Bush signed a law in 2008 that prevented the immediate deportation of children not from Canada or Mexico. But Stewart wasn't done shaming those agitating for a quick send-off for a bunch of kids who didn't complete the complicated immigration paperwork. He saved special scorn for the protesters gathering near the detention facilities to confront busloads of scared children to "yell at them in a language they don't understand," and for Texas GOP Reps. Louie Gohmert and Blake Farenthold. He also mocked these Neanderthals who publicly promote America as the "greatest country ever" then wonder why would-be immigrants believe them.
Nothing says conservative Merica like hate pouring out on innocent children! So much for lady Liberty's
