Open Borders Advocates Pitch “Food Insecurity” As Means For Asylum

The open borders advocates are always finding some reason to let people who show up at our border in. Strangely, they never offer to house and feed these people at their own homes

Food insecurity is a legitimate basis for seeking asylum

In debates about whether to give asylum to the thousands of migrants at the southern border of the U.S., one crucial issue has been blatantly overlooked: food insecurity.

Imagine you and your children have been chronically hungry for days, weeks or possibly months. You have no resources to purchase food. Your government does not distribute food aid. For a variety of reasons, you’re no longer able to meet your family’s nutritional needs. Meanwhile, you’re barely able to register your children’s suffering because you’ve given them every last morsel, forsaking your own needs in the process.

What would you do to stop your family from starving?

Food insecurity is a form of violence which stems from an uneven distribution of resources both across and within societies. When asylum-seekers talk about violence in their home countries, they’ve often experienced food-specific violence, such as gangs giving or withholding food as collateral or punishment, or paramilitary groups setting fire to crops. These are explicit threats to human life. (snip)

If you’re wondering why more asylum-seekers do not explicitly name these experiences of chronic food insecurity or hunger when coming into contact with immigration officials or the media, you only need to understand the power of shame in silencing certain narratives.

The ability to feed oneself and others within a household or family indexes biological, moral and social obligations. We feel shame in failing to feed those to whom are obligated. Obstructions to feeding can have significantly uneven consequences for men and women.

It’s an interesting argument, but it misses one important point: it’s not our problem. The United States should be taking care of our own first. It’s not our job to support the billions of people who have problems growing and/or obtaining food, often because the government of that country is terrible (see Venezuela for the most current issue). And this is just an excuse to let in millions and millions of people who will be immediately 100% dependent on the U.S. government, taking taxpayer money and funneling it to non-Americans.

Why don’t people like writer Megan A Carney start using their own money to provide aid? There are more than enough open borders advocates amongst the Democratic Party to do this. They can enlist their rich Hollywood friends. Seriously, they don’t really need all those millions they get paid to make movies and tv shows, right? Pony up.

One commentor makes a good point (before going a bit too far)

If you show up to my door and you’re starving, I’ll give you a meal. If you continue coming to my door everyday for 40 years telling me you’re starving, I’ll give you a a 50 ft head start before I shoot. Enough is…… enough

And another

And the photo? A guy in a tank top who looks like he works out. Another guy with cool sunglasses on his backward turned baseball cap. Another guy with a smartphone laughing and taking pictures. Maybe they don’t have food because they are paying for gym memberships, fashion, and phones. But no matter, they are starving and only America can save them.

The photo in this post is from the article. Further, the U.S. sends lots and lots of food aid to countries around the world. We send experts and expertise on how to better increase crop yields and other agricultural assistance. It’s not our job to take in everyone who claims an issue. Especially when they come here Demanding.

    Interesting point. The Republicans refuse to take care of our own (preferring to take care of their own millionaires and billionaires), so that prevents them from wanting to help others. Nice job, Republicans.

    “Come once, I’ll feed you. Come again, I’ll shoot you.” Nice.

      Jeff,
      Can’t help but lie, can you. You do realize that you come across as a nut.

    • formwiz says:

      Of course, they take care of the rich with record unemployment, especially for minorities, more jobs than ever, lower taxes, and less regulation.

      And that last line sounds more like the Demos.

    I have been hearing a lot of PSAs on the radio about how 1 in 5 children in America have “food insecurity” (not real hunger, which is defined differently). So it looks like coming here won’t really help them, since we have that problem also. Similar, if they are running from Central American criminal gangs, we have those here too. So, not really good claims for asylum. You can’t even make a good claim about fleeing communism any more, since we regularly elect them to public office here.

    “Food insecurity”. Another ambiguous leftist term designed to mean nothing and yet anything they decide it means at any given time. Like the way they use “sexual assault” or “intersectionality” or “climate change”. Smoke and mirrors to hide their true intent.

    Isn’t it interesting that each and every open borders advocate always has a lock on his font door?

    The US is 22,000,000,000,000 in debt with already 50 million illegals here.. This is insane to rollover to the open borders anarchists! The US will some day collapse and all you open borders anarchists too will pay the price with their freedom and liberty.
