Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

[SCENE:&#160 the bridge of Pegasus.&#160 Lord Darth Venomous is holding something in his hands, and grimacing as though he has a bad case of hemorrhoids.]

KORRIOTH:&#160 Admiral?&#160 Are you alright, m’lord?

VENOMOUS:&#160 I’m okay, Korrioth.&#160 I’m just trying to make this damned contraption work.

MERLIN:&#160 What are you trying to make it ping over, m’liege?

VENOMOUS:&#160 That would be this, Wizard.

It’s at bedtime that Jorge Barraza misses his father most. The 5-year-old, clutching two stuffed animals, is dressed in pajamas and a felt cowboy hat just like his dad’s. But such comforts don’t make up for the absence of Juan Carlos Barraza, a Mexican migrant repatriated to his old hometown.

“He’s really in Mexico. By himself,” Jorge says in English. “We went to visit him, and the first night I wanted to get home.”

Jorge, who lives in Mesquite with his mother, is one of nearly 3.5 million children in the U.S. caught in the middle of the national debate about illegal immigration – born in this country to a parent who is an illegal immigrant.

VENOMOUS:&#160 And try as I might, I can’t budge that damned needle.&#160 I’ve even tried using the Force, but it’s a non-starter.

Amid the biggest wave of repatriations and deportations in decades, these children are being pulled in two directions – a situation that the U.S. government blames on the parents.

“The responsibility of these decisions rests with the parents, not with ICE,” says Carl Rusnok of U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement.

Damned straight it is, Skippy.&#160 Neither ICE, nor (by extension) the US Government, held a gun to these illegal pendejos’&#160 heads to cross the Rio Grande, y’know?&#160 It was their&#160 choice and theirs alone.

Don’t go blaming the United States, nor – again, by extension – any of her law-abiding citizens for the problems these anchor babies are undergoing.&#160 This is what happens when you don’t follow the process; this is what happens when you break the fuckin’ law.

Nope, still not movin’.
