Article title: "Agents warned not to talk to media amidst surge of immigrant
children crossing border".....or, ya know, we could just
actually close the holes in the fence and have a REAL border like other
countries.Gee, just whatever am I thinking!......
Here's what we read in today's news:"Obama
Administration forbids lawmakers from taking photos of facility where illegal
children are housed...""Border patrol threatened with
criminal charges for speaking to reporters about illegal children crossing our
southern borders...""Agents changing diapers, heating baby
formula for surge of illegal children...""OBAMA: 'Our
Future Rests' on DREAMers..."Sounds like Obama is nearing
his campaign-promised goal of transforming America... into a third world
happy2bhere:"I would like to know exactly who it is that is telling
the press to stay out and the officers to not speak to the press."Obama, of course. And the press are more than willing to accommodate.Liberal Ted:"Bottom line, he wants illegals here."He's building a Democrat voter base. Doesn't matter if
they're illegal or not. With voter ID not required, illegals can make
their way to the voting booth to cast a vote for... Hilliary."Barack has never been for this country or it's people. It's
always about him and his religion."A religion that seems to
countenance lying to accomplish a goal?Brio:"Once amnesty
becomes official, our borders will become flooded with illegals like never
before."I think the rest of the world will be on our doorstep
way before any immigration bill will get enacted."Obama is not
giving the needed support and it's now a total disaster."No
disaster for him. It's going as planned. These kids and their parents are
future democrat voters. In the mean time, the kids getting fed, housed, and
educated... at taxpayer expense.
We have just cause to go into Mexico, and fix their leadership.Opps!
After we fix ours.
First of all, Customs & Border Protection and ICE are operating under a
lawsuit on handling minors. The procedures are onerous at best. The old INS so
badly mismanaged these situations that a lawsuit was filed and they lost.
Historically what few children that enter illegally are accompanied by an adult
family member this is unprecedented but easily foreseeable.Secondly,
every time the Feds talk about "immigration reform" illegal entries
skyrocket. When the Immigration Reform & Control Act passed in 1986 people
began to pour in from all corners of the globe but of course, especially from
the Western Hemisphere. That leads to massive fraud which is perpetrated by
alien smugglers. Most residents of Mexico and Central America do not have
access to daily news. The smugglers tell them whatever necessary to convince
people to rush to the US. The smugglers simply convinced people that their kids
could come and cover for whole families to secure legal status here. This
brings out document vendors who provide, for a fee, documentation to satisfy
"reform" requirements. Millions of dollars were made by such folks and
many people gained legal status fraudulently and for many reasons INS was buried
and unable to react properly.
Send them back and let their countries worry about them. There are lots of
children in need in the US. Hard to do but where do you draw the line the flood
gate has been opened.
I wonder, on what else the media has been told to be quite about.
In my not so humble opinion, the media, including this newspaper, has ignored a
serious and macabre situation of minor children, from another country being
rounded up, sorted and housed in secure facilities unable to contact the outside
under the guise of so-called processing.The physical and emotional
trauma is enormous and serious.This is the first administration to
forcefully house and detain minors in remote locations since the Roosevelt
administration's infamous relocation camps for American citizens of
Japanese ancestry.Call them what you will but these facilities are
concentration camps of some sort and the media is sitting on their hands
watching the World Cup matches and the NBA final.This is a
manufactured crisis and is being handled in secret and the cost both in dollars
and lives is enormous.How did these people wind up on our border?
Anyone know? The media/press must think it is a miracle or magic, either way
they're not interested or cowed into a corner.
Wow! It's crazy rubbish!Will people ever stop blaming Bush.The Buck stops with Obama. That's his own words!
Really? How are we responsible for mass migration south of the border? If Obama
really wanted to be dishonest he could just have terrible security at the border
like during the Bush years and NOT catch them. No problem then!You're basically saying it's Obama's fault for catching TOO
MANY kids trying to cross the border.
When will we hold the pro-illegal groups responsible for this humanitarian
disaster? Obama can point to his failed waivers and encouraging people to come
here illegally as the root cause for this disaster.
It's humorous in a sad sort of way to think that Obama has recently tried
to convince both Congress and the American people that our borders are secure.
Wrong! Not in the least. He is now trying to put a gag order
on this latest situation because it's a given that the borders need to be
secure before further talk of immigration reform can go forward. Once amnesty
becomes official, our borders will become flooded with illegals like never
before. When border agents recently talked to some of these kids,
they found out the media in South America is telling people there that now is
the time to come to the USA... that there is almost no chance of being sent
back. Unfortunately, that is true. A 10 year veteran of the Border Patrol
recently reported that he doesn't know of a single kid that's been
sent back in the past year. 40% of the border agents are now
spending all of their time processing new youth arrivals daily, which leaves the
borders almost open for anyone to walk through. Obama is not giving the needed
support and it's now a total disaster.
Its' becoming more and more difficult for Barack's liberal
cheerleaders to have anything to say in his defense.You can only
blame Bush, fox news, and talk radio for so much!
Barack wants this issue. As 'I M LDS' stated, he wants a crisis.
Have you noticed that barack relies heavily on having one crisis after another?
When the crap hits the fan, he finds someone or something to blame "Bush,
ATMS, Republicans, Fox News, Talk Radio" etc. Like those people and machines
talk to him and control his mind, and he is incapable of escaping the awesome
mysterious power of a conspiracy.Bottom line, he wants illegals
here. He will then somehow shove their legalization down our throats; playing
the children card.If he really cared about children, then he would
stop what is happening in Iraq. As terrorists are marching city to city,
decapitating police and soldiers in front of children. Forcing women and
children into sharia law.I think barack releasing the 5 from gitmo
was the go ahead signal to this group to take over Iraq, so they get their
caliphate.Barack has never been for this country or it's
people. It's always about him and his religion.
This is not only a humanitarian crisis but a political one too. I would like to
know exactly who it is that is telling the press to stay out and the officers to
not speak to the press. And why. I can only conclude that it is to do damage
control on the politics of immigration reform. Obviously, with this going on,
Obama cannot now assure the American people that all is well on the border and
security is tight. This mess gives the "secure the border first" side
of the argument a lot of power now in the discussion of immigration reform.
I'm sure that does not please the Obama/amnesty side at all.
I guess its better to gag the messenger than actually deal with the problem!
Just another example of baracks hypocrisy. Most transparent ever? Do what you
said you'd do once in a while barack.
Who cares about the agency's "gag order" - what about these
thousands of children crossing the border? Alone? Sounds like a humanitarian
crisis to me!
"The most open and transparent administration ever."Obama's actions are never about what is best for our country, but for
what might keep him and his fellow liberal Democrats in power.This
sudden, unprecedented influx of unaccompanied children is not a mere
coincidence. It is the result of deliberate policies to ignore and undermine
our laws. The kids are mere pawns in a hypocritical partisan
political scheme. Repugnant to all our previous history as a nation, but fully
in keeping with "the Chicago way."Hopefully, some brave
agents will ignore this illegal order, and become whistle blowers on this
lawless regime and their illegal acts.
