False compassion ensues from conservatives over humanitarian crisis

In a recent interview with Fox News, Senator Ted Cruz showed a display of false compassion for the refugee children at our border, stating that the more compassionate response is to send them back. He even accused Democrats of actually wanting them to be “maimed and brutalized.” Check out the video below:

At least Wallace questions the veracity of the argument before letting Cruz drone on. Does it get any lower than this?

In another Fox News interview, Southern Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress from a megachurch in Dallas shared his opinion on the border crisis, going so far as to argue that one is being compassionate and imitating Jesus by building a fence to keep these children out. He compared it to building a fence around your pool so that your neighbor’s child doesn’t wander in, fall, and drown in your pool. Because apparently, letting children into the US for relief from the danger they are running from is even more dangerous than sending them back.

It is one thing to send children back out of blatantly selfish interest in protecting the border. It is quite another thing to call it “compassionate.”

    Cruz should be thankful we let him immigrate.The man never felt compassion for anyone who didn’t contribute to his campaign fund.

    If illegals represented Undocumented Republicans instead of Undocumented Democrats, both parties would have the opposite opinions.
