Houston Woman Goes Off on Border Children: ‘What About the Goddamn Kids Here?’

A local Fox station in Houston went looking for someone who wants the United States to deport the hundreds of unaccompanied minors being held at the border and they found her. Earlier this week, Fox 26 interviewed Bernadette Lancelin, who delivered a profanity-laced rant to the camera about her opposition to helping house and care for the immigrant children from Mexico and Central America.

Speaking outside a local middle school, Lancelin said when her kids have had little assistance from the government, she doesn’t want the billions of dollars President Barack Obama has requested from Congress being spent on children who came to this country illegally.

“It’s not right. Now billions of dollars want to be borrowed from the White House to help feed and house them,” she said. “What about the goddamn kids here? In our neighborhood? In our country? Not just in this neighborhood but in our country?”

“All these kids? Really? Why can’t they go back?” she asked. “I’m sorry that their parents are in poor living conditions or surroundings or whatever’s going on out there. I don’t care.”

Growing more and more frustrated, Lancelin asked, “Am I the only one in this community that’s out here that watches the news every goddamn morning? Oh, my God! I feel alone right now in this, and I’m very saddened by it.”
