American Towns Brace For New Flood Of Illegal Aliens

The voice was frantic – and unintelligible to the 911 dispatcher. “Ma’am, I cannot understand you,” she said. After 80 seconds, one word leapt out: “Riverview.”

On a warm July evening in 2012, while Marshalltown, Iowa, celebrated Independence Day, three refugee children from Myanmar (Burma) drowned in the Iowa River.

The drownings at Riverview Park cast a grim light on the challenges facing both the city and its newest immigrants, most of whom spoke little English and had scant understanding of life in their new home – including the perils, known to more established residents, of the river’s treacherous currents.

“We preach to kids all the time: You don’t swim in the river. You don’t play around the river,” says Kay Beach, president of the Marshalltown school board. “But they didn’t know that.”

For two decades, rural communities across the Midwest have been finding ways to absorb Latino immigrants. Now, a new generation of immigrants arriving from far-flung places such as Myanmar, Somalia, Iraq, and West Africa has brought a bewildering variety of cultures and languages. Many towns are struggling to cope.

    If this keeps up (illegals wading in here by the millions) we will become a 3rd world country…especially as the Baby Boomers die off. We can thank our nimrod government for that! Somehow, we’ve got to get rid of Obama!!!! 1 1/2 years more will finish us off!

    Funny, I spent many years in the military, when I went to foreign countries, I was encouraged to learn the customs, the language if possible and realize I was in their country. I learned and had enjoyable times, I made friends, and expanded my views, my wife and children also did the same and we all learned. Now we don’t expect those that come to our country to learn our customs, our language, we want our own citizen to feel sorry and accept. If you come here to live, it’s your duty to learn our customs and language, if you want to advance, if not, don’t come.

    We need to be selective as to who, how many, and from what country we accept into our republic and culture.

    We should require that they take an oath of allegiance to, and be committed to becoming a part of their new country and way of life, and learn/speak the language. If they aren’t willing to do this, then they don’t belong here.

    Illegals should not be allowed to come in, and those who are here illegally should be returned home.

      Great response! Better yet, send all the illegals back to where they came from and that includes the one in the WH.

    2. Lynn says:

      I agree. Let them camp on the white house lawn.
