Obama created this problem ...he owns it! If anyone needs to fix it, it's
Most comments above indicate that blaming the President and doing nothing is
more important than problem solving. This demonstrates what created the tea
party anti immigration movement.
I am certain this is all pleasing to Obama because now he can drive another
wedge to disrupt the good in this country! One need not think I am questioning
his motives. His actions are all anyone need to watch to see what he is doing
to this country!
If it could ensured that Obama would use the money for those purposes that
actually sped the deportation of those coming here illegally, then that's
good. Beyond that, the primary emphasis should be on sealing up the border
and stopping illegals from getting here in the first place. Once that actually
happens, the attempts at getting here will slow dramatically. Word gets back to
their home countries that there are no more free passes for welfare programs,
and the incentive to get here will start drying up. Human smugglers will
fight that notion for a time, since they are the ones profiting the most from
all this. But reality will eventually hit them as well.Until funds
are obtained for those express purposes, Obama should use the National Guard to
shore-up the Border Patrol and keep these people from reaching American soil,
where they are then able to take advantage of the loophole in the Executive
Order Obama issued in 2012 when his Dream Act wasn't passed in Congress. It
is exactly that particular Executive Order that is the primary cause of this
crisis. It legitimately comes directly back on Obama.
We hear it said that these kids are from Central America. How do the border
agents know that? Because they're being told that by the illegals... who
are likely repeating what the coyotes tell them to say in order be eligible for
amnesty under a George W. Bush bill for protection of children from non
contiguous countries. Since they're crossing from Mexico, seems their
from... Mexico.The answer to the problem seems very simple... ask
them for their citizenship papers showing from which country they came. If they
don't have such papers, load them into a bus, take them to the nearest
Mexican border check point, and let them off.
Just ship them all to the White House. Obama can entertain them with his
stories and Michelle can feed them leftover school lunch broccili.
worf said to: Happy Valley Heretic, "Remember the great flood during
Noah's time?"No, I wasn't there, was Noah a cool
guy?But seriously your comparing conservatives, to a vengeful
God?worf said: "Let's be more objective! Liberals created
this crises."Yeah, with all their secret wars and removal of
elected officials in the countries that these children are fleeing, The most
violent in the world, are there problem?
Happy Valley Heretic,Remember the great flood during Noah's
time?Many children involved with that event. All through history
children have suffered for the sins of adults.Compassionate liberal
California has turned these children away, more then conservatives of Texas.Let's be more objective! Liberals created this crises.
4,300,000,000 Dollars is what Obama wants: That is enough funding for 40,000
Border agents for a year or enough money to feed 1,000,000 American children for
an entire year! Just a few months ago Obama said the border was
secure! If that was the case and is the case how is that 5 year old children
can sneak into the United States? If they can then so can 25 year old
terrorists! If Mexico was our friend and ally they would enforce
their side of the border as Canada does.It appears Mexico's
failure to cooperatively protect their side of our border and prevent their
citizens from illegally entering could lead to a major backlash as soon as a
terrorist act occurs using the common border? Is Mexico conspiring to bring down
the United States and injure U.S citizens? This question is not far-fetched
considering Mexico's policies during World War 1 and World War 2, when
Mexico entertained the idea of joining with the Axis powers!Legal
immigrants receive up to 3 days of medical testing before being approved to
enter the United States on a visa. That is not happening here! It threatens the
The Compassionate Conservative as expressed above. How that pup tents
boys. By the way this is only 3 or 4 days cost of being in Iraq.But money
spent to Kill foreigners is money well spent, Children running from countries
we've personally destablized, who cares?
"...Obama said he still will seek such changes, including providing the
secretary of homeland security additional authority to speed up the removal of
children..."So that's his game. Barack Hussein Obama says
he wants the money to speed up removal. But once the money is appropriated by
Congress and in his hands, he'll change his tune to something like...
'well, I guess we won't be deporting them after all. They'll make
good democrats some day.'If I were John Boehner I'd tell
Obama to 'go pound sand.' Or maybe tell him to put them on Air Force
One and send 'em someplace else.
Article quote: "Tackling what he has called a humanitarian crisis, President
Barack Obama on Tuesday asked Congress for $3.7 billion to cope with a tide of
minors from Central America who are illegally crossing the U.S. border,
straining immigration resources and causing a political firestorm in
Washington."Or, ya know, Obama could just send 'em back...
@worf:"This is not just children crossing the border. Criminals, gang
members, and terrorists are also coming."You got that right.
Even people from China and India are coming. Once the world sees that no one is
being sent back (and they aren't) we'll see much of the world's
poor on our borders being greeted with open arms by border patrol agents. I
fear we ain't seen nothing yet.@Say No to BO:"For
that kind of money he could just pay them to leave. Really, $61K per
child?"Don't forget, he's got thousands of immigration
lawyers and judges to pay off. Each kid has to have a court appointed lawyer to
accompany him to court and plead his/her case. Those arguments and
presentations could run on for months each. Then for those who don't show
up they will have to send ICE out to find them. And, of course by then the
illegals will have changed their names and perhaps even acquired some bogus
documentation.It is said over and over again that we need
comprehensive immigration reform. The reform should begin with... impeachment
of Barack Hussein Obama.
@Say No to BO,Great observation.I think Obama is now
asking for 4.3 billion.
Nothing will ever be solved until the border is secure FIRST! The prez and libs
are not particularly interested. And, not that long ago, he told us the border
Barack caused this mess so Barack can pay for it ...by cutting some of his other
pet programs. The man is simply THE worst president in US history as this
entire country is coming apart before our eyes ...as the president campaigns.
For that kind of money he could just pay them to leave.Really, $61K per
Not one thin dime UNTIL Obama picks up the phone and gets Mexico to release the
Marine being held.Then and ONLY then, if Congress decides to give
him more of our tax dollars they need to tie the money DIRECTLY to deportations.
For instance: how about for every 1 billion he gets - he deports 1
million illegal immigrant trespassers? That works out to 1,000$ per illegal.
HOW MUCH can it cost to buy them a one-way ticket back home?NO WAY
should Obama get one dime of taxpayers' money to solve a problem that he
At one point, the national policy was "Millions for defence, but not one
cent for tribute." That was when we decided that our nation deserved
respect and that lawless acts against our people would not be tolerated. In the
long run, our newly raised military forces took action to stop the illegal acts
and the problem was fixed for about 200 years.The trouble with
Obama's request is that he will use it to pay for babysitters,
transportation, housing, medical care and coddling of those who are breaking our
laws by coming here illegally. It will not be spent tightening border security
to stop illegal border crossing, or the immediately force illegals back across
the border. It will accelerate, not stop the flow of illegal immigrants.Obama is betting that his lawless actions will ensure Hispanic voters
vote Democrat for a century if he can get enough here and get them on the
liberal welfare plantation.Our very existence as a nation depends on
the rule of law, and having a secure border and not allowing illegal immigration
is the essential first step. Legal immigrants are welcome, but
illegal are not. Get in line and obey our laws!
This is not just children crossing the border.Criminals, gang
members, and terrorists are also coming.Obama won't meet with
the Texas governor to help solve the situation, and is suing Arizona for
enforcing immigration laws.Hmm? Could death, and destruction
