“Where Can I Get Asylum?” Asks Woman Stuck in Dangerous Baltimore Neighborhood

By  |  0 Comments

Unaccompanied minors fleeing viοlence in Mexico and Central America have created an border crossingurgent crisis for the U.S., with those sympathetic insisting that lawmakers have a responsibility to care for these immigrant children. This stance has rankled some here in America who point to urban youth who live in viοlent communities and even suffer through post traumatic stress disorder but receive no help from the government.

On a radio show hosted by conservative firebrand Laura Ingraham, a black woman claiming to be from Baltimore called in to express her dismay that the Obama administration is putting the interest of undocumented immigrant children over children born right here in the U.S.

“I’m living a nightmare. My whole neighborhood is so viοlent. There’s so much crime,” she explained. “I have gangs everywhere here in Baltimore! I can’t let my daughter ride her bicycle outside – I can’t do anything, Laura! I’m trapped here.”

The woman said that the Obama administration is willing to spend billions on foreigners but isn’t willing to invest in black urban communities where crime is spiraling out of control.

“Well, what about my neighborhood? You don’t have to do it in Beverly Hills, but in the inner cities where we are suffering,” she said. “My children cannot play outside. I cannot take my trash out without locking the door – it’s awful. Who is going to give us anything? Where can I get asylum? Where can I get refugee status? I don’t know what I can do. Nobody cares what happens to my children.”

Given that the woman was speaking on a conservative radio show, it is easy to assume that she could’ve been a plant. But this may not have been the case considering she’s not the only black person to have made similar comments in recent days.

A local news affiliate interviewed Bernadette Lancelin of Houston who expressed a similar view.

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