WE are to blame for her death? WHAT?

Interesting bit of stupidity here….I thought I’d print the article, it’s not long, and put in my interjections and ask you what you think:

By Sofia Menchu

GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) – The family of a 19-year-old Guatemalan woman killed by a U.S. border patrol officer called on Friday for the United States to dial-back its rhetoric on migrants, after President Donald Trump described gang members entering the country as “animals.”

“dial back its rhetoric?”  …like not call things for what they ARE because they asked us not to?

The woman, identified by her family as Claudia Gomez, was shot on Wednesday in south Texas by an officer who opened fire after several people “rushed him,” the Border Patrol said in a statement on Friday. The agency, alternately describing them as “illegal aliens” and “a group of suspected illegal aliens,” said Gomez was among them.

Think they’re legal?  They ‘rushed him’  and he’s supposed to do nothing?  Nobody likes to hear someone’s been killed, but….

The Border Patrol said in an earlier statement that the people attacked the agent with blunt objects, and that Gomez was among the assailants.

Ah, so she did assail an agent on his own…by himself…facing many people throwing blunt objects on them, but we should dial back the rhetoric?

“To the government of the United States, (I ask) that you do not treat us like this – like animals – just because you are a powerful and developed country,” Dominga Vicente, Gomez’s aunt, told reporters in Guatemala City.

They read our papers or their lawyers advise them…using the word ‘animals’ shows that, doesn’t it.  People really play us.   

And so our power should prohibit us from being truthful.  “Do not treat us like this?”  I’d like to ask these people if they’d stop treating our country like a dirty welcome mat, taking advantage, sneaking in, breaking our laws before they’ve been 2′ into America.

The young woman from the Guatemalan highlands had left her home in search of work and education opportunities, Vicente said.

Ah, she sounds so lovely, so entitled, so innocent!  But, somehow, she felt she should ‘assail’ a lone border agent with blunt objects….?

On Thursday, the Guatemala foreign ministry said the rights of migrants must be respected. “Guatemala laments any act of violence and excessive use of force by the border patrol,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.

which rights?

A seven-minute video posted online and viewed thousands of times appears to show the aftermath of the incident on a residential street. In the video, a woman calls out in Spanish, “Why did you shoot the girl? You killed her!”

and I ask “Why did this girl attack the agent?  She could have killed him!” (nobody cares?)

Trump said last week that he was referring to criminal gangs when he called some illegal immigrants “animals.”   He defended his statement on Wednesday, adding that he was working on a plan to reduce aid to countries that he said do nothing to stop MS-13 gang members from crossing into the United States.

BRAVO!!!  GREAT IDEA!! 

AGREE WITH Z?

    Well, thanx to our “scandal-free” former PotUS’s government, the plan for emergencies such as shooters, terrorists, rapists, druggies, mobs, and zombies is to run, escape, and hide . . . https://www.ready.gov/active-shooter . . . ‘cause remember, when you’re being shot at by an intruder, the cops are only 15 or 20 minutes away, provided you have 9-1-1 on your smartfone speed dial.

    All I can say is that in MY house, the way I was raised, anybody who breaks in, eats my food, drives up my utilities bills, and threatens me and mine with violence had damned sure be better armed than I am.

    If Democrats put in half the time and energy for American infrastructure and law enforcement as they’re doin for Dreamers and other illegals, we could fix all our roads, bridges, and ghettos. Though there are many good people who are eager to live in this country, even as illegals, in hopes of a better life compared to what they’re fleeing, what good is having laws if you ignore the ones you don’t like?

    What we have is a bankrupting national embarrassment caused by allowing illegal immigrants to just walk across the border and get free health care, education, welfare, and other benefits while veterans who risked their lives to defend that very system are forced to wait months for treatment and sometimes die of their injuries while waiting.

    Consider the hypocrisy of a government which gave $1.3 billion to Iran, allowing them to pursue nuclear weapons and delivery systems for them but which insists that we cannot afford to pay for a wall on our southern border to keep out criminals, parasites, and drugs.

    I can’t speak for Jesus in what he might answer when asked about immigration. But I do remember from Sunday school that Heaven has a gate, a wall, a waiting list for some denominations, and extreme vetting for entrance.

    Far too many of the “immigrants” fleeing whatever in Central America for minimum wage jobs in the US are actually nothing more than “gimmegrants,” and the MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha) motto is reportedly “rape, kill, control.”

    The way SanFranNan and other leftistes see it, if you’re in deep financial trouble and swamped by gangs of illegal parasites which have gotten completely out of your control, blame deniers, the opposite political party, and previous administrations. Then smile in self-satisfaction from your faux political correctness as you declare a “new normal.”

    My wife is an immigrant who went through the lengthy green-card status for the required number of years and passed the test for naturalization. All of my children were born in the Philippines and required special documentation legitimizing and naturalizing them as toddlers before I could bring ’em here in 1968.

    I’d say that well over half of our closest friends over the past 50 years were either foreign nationals, green-card holders, or naturalized citizens, including Mexicans, Cubans, and various spouses from places such as Morocco, Egypt, Italy, Germany, Japan, Korea, and VietNam.

    So go ‘head on . . . call me a bigot and a racist. Macht nichts, y’all.

  3. I’m damn sick and tired of all the media stories sanctifying and canonizing ILLEGAL ALIENS!

    They ‘rushed him’ and he’s supposed to do nothing?

    Mustn’t shoot “a saint,” of course. Pfffft.

    Yes, indeed!

    I recently saw this on GOP journalist Peter Wehner’s Twitter feed:

    This is quite a discouraging finding: No group is less supportive of accepting refugees than white evangelical Protestants. This is a contra-biblical attitude, I would say; and evidence of what happens when faith is subordinated to political ideology.

    To my knowledge, Mr. Wehner is not taking into his nice home a batch of refugees of any ilk. He probably donates to such organizations. But I wonder if he puts his shoulder to the wheel and gets his hands dirty.

    No amount of rhetoric from Central Americans or prog/leftists will convince me that the border patrol agent acted improperly when he fired upon the violent mob of illegals who rush him. No one wants to see anyone get killed, but, by the same token, it is OUR border and the border agents are there to enforce OUR laws. Claudia Gomez would still be alive had she realized that the rights of Americans supersede those of illegal immigrants.

    This just strengthens the need for a southern border wall, doesn’t it? End of conversation.

    CUBE just said it all. She RUSHED the agent…he was alone, they were throwing blunt objects….end of story.

    AOW, a VERY often used defense of anything ‘kind’, anything that screws America in any way, is ‘blamed’ on Jesus’ kindness.
    We do not want to be unkind to ANYONE in America…we have laws, and rendering unto Caesar with our tax dollars is not the message of Jesus; the message is INDIVIDUAL open hearts….and ours are open to LEGAL immigration, people who care about AMerica enough to work to stay here…. because I believe Christ would also want us protecting OUR OWN, a concept completely foreign to Liberal Democrats.
    And YES! “shooting a saint,” Bestowing SAINTHOOD is EXACTLY what our leftwing media does the second any bad guy’s killed. Never fails.

    Bocopro..you said a lot of good stuff but this “If Democrats put in half the time and energy for American infrastructure and law enforcement as they’re doin for Dreamers and other illegals, we could fix all our roads, bridges, and ghettos” says it ALL

    Brava! Excellent editorial comments, Z! Headline should be Border guard protects himself as mob of illegals rush in headlong assault.” Nothing new. The “Boston Massacre” was of the same ilk. A small group of British soldiers, backed up to the wall with no retreat, fired on an armed mob assailing them. John Adams defended the soldiers and was reviled for it. But they were within their rights. Even MORE so this mob rushing an established national border.

    BTW, Something like 40% of murders on Long Island are MS-13 related.

    Baysider, thanks…I like your headline! And yes, I heard about that 40% in LONG ISLAND, imagine? OUR LONG ISLAND???
    Funny, I remember standing on the Champs Elysee one night with Mr. Z and a dear German couple friends of ours…and I see a theater that advertises a movie..COLUMBINE! it was not that long after that nightmare and I will never forget saying “MY Columbine?” I was so sad that someone was cashing in on such an American disaster, something so ugly, so unusual (at the time).
    Kind of like the astonishment that Mexican animals are so prevalent and so awful in OUR LONG ISLAND???

    “Animals!” There’ a wonderful scene in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves where the Sheriff of Nottingham (marvelously played by Alan Rickman) consults a fortune teller about the future. She is troubled when she sees “animals … from the north.” Puzzled, he repeats “animals? from the north?” Then “ah, you mean CELTS!” Then we switch to the naked blue mud covered bodies charging into the kingdom. So, sensitive snowflakes, get over it! If anything, it’s an insult to animals. Even a fiercesome trained eagle (likened to a Rottweiler with feathers and an attitude problem) does not deserve the comparison.
