Oddly enough, this may be more literal than tongue-in-cheek.

yeah cause Obama caused all of the violence in the area those children are leaving. Obama put all of those children on the train and journey that almost kills the families that travel in the United States 
Obama Obama Obama. Obama just causes all of the “problems” our country has, right?Fuck off to whoever made this comic. 

No, he did not cause violence in those areas.  However, his non-enforcement policies have made it abundantly clear that once you get here, you probably won’t be turned away.  But why would Obama want to turn any of these people away?  They’re going to be good Democrat voters if they can only be granted amnesty…which is why Democrats are really working towards getting that passed.
If Obama cared at all about these poor “children”, he would put them all on a one-way flight back to their home countries.  If they have family already here illegally who paid for them to travel here and cross the border, then, we’ll happily pay for their ticket as well.  That’s why if kids just crawled over your fence and started camping out in your backyard, you don’t just leave them there, you kindly and safely get them back to their actual home as soon as possible.

Evacuation isn’t a cakewalk. People don’t do it for fun. People do it as a last resort because they can’t keep living where they are now. Whether that is because of violence, political turmoil, poverty, or whatever-the-hell-else. These kids would not be safer or better off back in their home countries. People resort to illegal immigration because they have no options left, and people sacrifice everything, all of their funds, their safety, and more, to get their children better lives in better places, even if that means that those lives are led away from their families. Don’t act like sending them back to their “actual homes” would be a sign of “caring” or even a good or decent thing to do. 
For the record, if a bunch of kids camped out in my backyard for the hell of it, I’d be pissed. If they were running away from abusers, homelessness, poverty, and gang wars, I’d invite them in and get them a hot chocolate. 

Except you’d be inviting them in permanently and supplying their hot chocolate permanently because they don’t know how to provide their own for themselves.  Then other kids would get wind of this great deal they got from your hospitality and they would also jump your fence.  Before long you have 40 kids living in your house, all saying they’re running away from abusers, homelessness, poverty, and gang wars as excuses to get your free hot chocolate.  When are you going to draw the line and send them home?  They can’t stay in your home forever drinking hot chocolate.  
You do also realize that we have gang violence, poverty, homelessness, and abuse already in the cities these children are being escorted to here in the United States, right?  Many of these “children" are the perpetrators of these awful acts too.  Now, we have to deal with them.  
Sometimes the compassionate thing is to do the hard thing.  Send these people home, we have our own problems.

"Send these people home, we have our own problems."
Exactly what Jesus would do. *sigh*
Yeah…you know, from approx 1938 through 1941, America had that same attitude about Jewish immigrants who were fleeing their European homes. The German ocean liner, MS St. Louis, attempted to evacuate 936 Jewish refugees out of Europe. After Cuba, the United States, and Canada, all refused them entry into their countries, the MS St. Louis was forced back home. Of the 936 Jews on board, 254 ended up dying in concentration camps because “we can’t save you, we got our own problems here ya know”. You know what that means? To me, it means that Cuba, the United States, Canada were complicit in 254 murders.
Now, before you all start flooding me with angry anons, I am in no way comparing the situations these kids fled from to the Holocaust. I’m just saying, America has had this attitude towards immigrants and refugees before and it ended in those refugees’ murders.
You know what, maybe these kids shouldn’t have tried to enter America illegally, but desperate times call for desperate measures and when your life is being threatened, you do everything possible (and yes, even illegal, to save yourself). If someone is chasing me down the street trying to kill me and I see a fence I can jump to get away from them, you really think I’m gonna say, “no, I’ll just stay here because if I jump that fence to save my life, I’d be illegally trespassing on that person’s property and, oh dear me, we can’t have that!” And if someone jumped your fence in the middle of the night and stormed through your door uninvited screaming “someone’s trying to attack me! Please help! Please let me stay here! Please don’t send me away!” You would honestly say, “no! Get the Hell out! Go back where you came from!”? You seriously would?
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
I think maybe we should remove that poem from the base of the Statue of Liberty because apparently that’s not what America stands for anymore.

Did you read anything I just wrote above?  You are still acting on the premise that these are all children, when in fact they are not.  Many of them took more risks crossing Mexico to get to our border than they’ve ever faced in their hometowns.  Some were raped, robbed, or murdered on their journey.  Why? Because they knew once they got here the likelihood of getting turned away was slim to none.  Plus, their family members have been sending money to get them here.
Those that came to Ellis Island did so lawfully.  They went through the process the right way.  The US sent home many of the sick, mentally ill, unskilled, or criminals that came through.  Meanwhile, we have people that have been deported time and time again and still come back to our country today.  Many of them are unskilled, uneducated, criminal, diseased or worse…and they’re coming to a neighborhood near you.
Also, Jesus taught to show compassion for others but also that the law of the land must be obeyed of face punishment. So, spare me the biblical lectures.  Blaming the US, Canada, and Cuba for the death of 250 Jews because they were turned away is pretty low considering they had no earthly idea the fates of Jews in Germany at that time.  There was a reason why the Immigration Act of 1924 was passed and enforced at that time.

"You are still acting on the premise that these are all children, when in fact they are not."
Not children:

No children here:

I don’t see a single child in this photograph:

Nope, still no kids:

No children:

Still no children:

Definitely no children here:

Wow, you’re absolutely right! Of all these photos I found of the immigrants we’re talking about, not ONE contains any children! These are definitely not photos of innocent children. These are clearly photos of hardened criminals trying to break into our homes, rob us blind, kill our babies, steal our shitty minimum wage jobs, take our welfare, start gangs, draw graffiti on our abandoned buildings, and probably purposely get themselves pregnant twenty times just so they can have the fun of using government money have a lot of free abortions.
"Blaming the US, Canada, and Cuba for the death of 250 Jews because they were turned away is pretty low considering they had no earthly idea the fates of Jews in Germany at that time."
I didn’t blame the US, Cuba, and Canada for the deaths of those 254 innocent people. I said, they were complicit. They helped. Their actions and decisions the day that ship docked their shores to ask for help DID contribute to their murders. They sent those people back to their deaths. It doesn’t matter if they meant to or not. Those people asked for our help and we told them to fuck off. Whether you know what you’re doing or not, if you help someone murder someone you help someone murder someone. If someone comes knocking on my door begging me to let them in and I refuse, and I later found out that that person was fleeing from a murderer and my refusal to help them allowed that murderer to kill them…well, even though I didn’t know that by refusing them I was contributing to their murder, I’d sure feel guilty, like I contributed to their murder. Wouldn’t you? And if we send these kids back, KNOWING full well of the dangers we’d be sending them back to, that means we’d be complicit in whatever happens to them. And if you’re okay with that then I can’t even try to reason with someone so cold and unfeeling and unempathetic and heartless and just plain inhuman.

Happy Birthday, Natalie Wood | July 20, 1938 - November 29, 1981 

"I adored Natalie Wood. She was incredibly generous, which not many people in our industry are. She was extremely driven and in charge of her career. Yet Natalie had a vulnerability about her - a part of her that longed to be taken care of." - Robert Redford

"She was like a human Alka Seltzer - she was just the most bubbling, effervescent person, and she was very easy to work with." - Tony Mordente

"She loved life too much. She was a brave women." - Tony Costello 

"There was a fragility in her, and the emotions were very close to the surface: scratch her and get to an emotional color right away. There’s something breathless about her, and you can feel a kind of quivering just below the surface, a very appealing and vulnerable part of her. She had it in person. There was a kind of breathless vulnerability. You want to say, ‘everything’s going to be okay.’" - Sydney Pollack


valerieharpers:

Happy 76th Birthday, Natalie Wood

↳ (JULY 20 1938 - NOVEMBER 29 1981)

She was very smart, she read a book a week and had a wicked sense of humor. She was just adorable - one of the few movie stars I’ve met who was really worthy of that title.

She lived a very simple life. You know who her friends were? My favorite picture was taken when I brought a new camera over to her house. At the house that day were Laurence Olivier and Elia Kazan. So I have a photo of me, Olivier, Kazan, and Natalie. You look at that picture and the tragedy is you would never think she’d be the first to die.

To go to a New Year’s party at her house was amazing. It was the kind of a thing where Cary Grant came over at 12:30. She was the hub, she was the nexus. She was a child star and everybody loved her. [x]


Happy birthday  Natalia Nikolaevna Zacharenk aka Natalie Wood!!

July 20th 1938 | November 29th 1981

Sir Charles Spencer “Charlie” Chaplin, KBE (16 April 1889 – 25 December 1977) was an English actor, comedian, and filmmaker, who rose to fame in the silent era. Chaplin became a worldwide icon through his screen persona “the Tramp” and is considered one of the most important figures in the history of the film industry. His career spanned more than 75 years, from childhood in the Victorian era until a year before his death at age 88, and encompassed both adulation and controversy.

Chaplin was born in London and began acting on stage at the age of nine. In 1913, while on tour in the United States with Fred Karno’s comedy group, he accepted a contract to work for Mack Sennett’s Keystone film company. During his time at Keystone he began writing and directing some of the films in which he starred. Chaplin signed with the Essanay Film Manufacturing Company in 1915 and the year after with the Mutual Film Corporation. In 1918 Chaplin began producing his own films, initially releasing them through First National and then through United Artists, a corporation he co-founded with Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, and D. W. Griffith. In the late 1940s and early 1950s Chaplin was accused of being a Communist sympathiser, which he denied. He remained a British subject and, while travelling to England in 1952 to attend the premiere of his film, Limelight, his American re-entry permit was rescinded. Chaplin eventually settled in Switzerland, where he remained for the rest of his life. He made his last two films in England. x x
