Costello: Demographics Rule Dems

Chicago's Democrat Mayor Rahm Emmanuel made headlines recently when he asked the Obama administration to ship a thousand unaccompanied illegal alien children to his unfair city - although it must be noted that he did not offer to house any of the children in his own home. Naturally, he expects the taxpayers to underwrite his generosity. Emmanuel's offer is a bit ironic in that we're told that these children are fleeing Central American gang violence. Chicago's murder rate is competitive with Honduras' and, within the small subculture where most of Chicago's violence occurs, it's actually far higher. According to a sociological study, three quarters of Chicago's murders are committed within a subculture that numbers only 175,000. If violence were to explain this migration, then it would make sense for many of Chicago's children to flee to Honduras.Idaho Republican Gov. C.L. (Butch) Otter made headlines by asking that the Obama administration not burden the taxpayers of his state with babysitting duties. And the illuminati predictably condemned him as a heartless racist/Michael Costello, Lewiston Tribune. More here.
