Because we all know that this has always been a high priority issue with conservatives and the GOP.

Our government certainly has their priorities screwed up don't they ?

After the House GOP refused to pass a bill to support more funding for the VA, I could have sworn that the tune all the GOP supporters was singing was, "throwing money at the VA will not solve the problem."

You believe we owe it to them to care for them right? Be the first to step up. Talk is cheap.
What example is the GOP setting here?

News that I am sure will change your view of this:
President Obama budget request for veterans is "more than double the amount in constant dollars appropriated in 1980, when the veterans population was larger by a third."

Sen. Jim Webb says spending on veterans has grown dramatically since 1980 | PolitiFact Virginia

Why didn't Bush have it built?

More "pro-life" sentiment from the right.

Keep sending them to California and Maryland. Poloski will most probably adopt about a hundred of the little "dears" herself, the humanitarian that she is. The Democrats want open borders to raise future Democrats from, let the Democrat states have them all. Fly them to San Francisco to Poloski's home on Air Force One.

75% are boys between 15-17.
And even 8 year olds are admitting to having done criminal acts.
These "innocent kids" come from countries where they drop out before 6th grade and go work the streets for money.

Less than 30% make it to 6th grade never mind all the way to 12th and get a diploma.
These are third world countries full of corruption and crime and it's every man for himself down there.

Which is why these children want to escape from all of that.
