Posted on 12/29/2013 7:45:19 PM PST by moonshinner_09
The U.S. Border Patrol earlier this month arrested a 12-year-old illegal immigrant smuggling 80 pounds of marijuana from Mexico into Texas, reigniting a debate over controversial comments made by a Republican congressman earlier this year about childrens involvement in the cross-border drug trade.
Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican who has called for a crackdown on illegal immigration, had said there were more young illegal immigrants smuggling drugs than there were ones who were valedictorians of their classes in U.S. high schools.
In the Texas incident earlier this month, Border Patrol agents arrested six Mexicans two adults, two 17-year-olds, a 16-year-old and the 12-year-old smuggling more than 300 pounds of marijuana.
They were carrying the marijuana on their backs and when arrested it was discovered that the 12-year-old boy had the heaviest load at 80 pounds, the Border Patrol said in a statement describing the arrest.
The adults and one of the 17-year-old children were held after the early December incident, but the others including the 12-year-old were returned to Mexico, the Border Patrol said.
Mr. King said the incident shows he wasnt exaggerating his claim that children smuggling drugs into the U.S. is part of the immigration debate.
My critics were either woefully uninformed or deliberately misinformed the public for the purpose of advancing their amnesty agenda, he said in a statement.
He stirred up the controversy over the summer when was talking about some of the tougher cases in immigration, such as the so-called Dreamers the young illegal immigrants who are generally portrayed as having been brought to the U.S. by their parents.

Immigration advocates delivered cantaloupes to Mr. Kings office, and some started circulating a petition trying to pressure the GOP to oust Mr. King from his seat on the House Judiciary Committees immigration subcommittee.
The illegals need to write King for refund of sent cantaloupes
End the WOD now.
And he gets IN-STATE tuition!
Just think. The same government morons who have played hell getting 1.1 million Americans into the ObamaCare system are going to do everything that it takes to turn 45 million foreign nationals who can’t speak English into U.S. citizens. LOL! This should be a real freak show. The liberal “progs” really need to get off the recreational drugs. They’ve all lost their flippin’ minds.
Steve King is congressman of the year.
Upsets Karl Rove by pretending he is going to run for Senate. Forms his own gang of 70 to fight Rubio. Works with Iowa Radio and senate candidate Clovis to lauch attacks on the Rubio amnesty plan.
Tricks leadership into letting the house Republicans vote on defunding Obama’s adorable Dreamers.
Works with Ted Cruz to defund Obamacare. The shutdown takes 2 weeks away from amnesty momentum.
And there are still some here on Free Republic that have hopes & dreams of the House impeaching Obama. If my memory hasn't failed, John Boehner is still Speaker of The House and ain't nothing getting to the floor he does not approve.
Baby of a snake is also a snake.
Latina ‘GOP Strategist’ Ana Navarro and friend of John McCain says its racist to suggest such a thing.
" Navarro, who has castigated King on his comments before, denounced him again. "Congressman King should get some therapy for his melon fixation," she said. "I think there might be medication for that. I think he's a mediocre congressman with no legislative record and the only time he makes national press is when he comes out and says something offensive about the undocumented or Hispanics."
Ana Navarro BLASTS Steve King. (NBC MTP vid Aug 11, 2013 ) .
If she's a GOP amnesty strategist, "this war is lost". She sounds just like a Dim.
well she doesn’t speak for me...
She is advising the GOP...explains why the GOP lost to Obama twice.
That is why I post about her in comments here every so often.
She shows up on all three network Sunday shows frequently billed as a 'GOP strategist' and she started as a political strategist job on CNN.
She rarely goes after Dems, she is what RNC Priebus is looking for.
And she is FAT.
Is this toughy the same one Boehner just hired as an amnesty consultant? If so....YIKES!
No that’s not the same one.
A “GOP Strategist” who always sides with leftists.
Our only hope in stopping amnesty - since it's certainly not with the Pubbie *leaders* - is with groups like NumbersUSA.
That is what I see,
She is what the RNC seems to want.
The Dems keeping saying that there is still hope for that in this congress but its looking bleaker and bleaker for those counting on amnesty every day.
Next year they got unemployment comp, a Farm bill and a debt increase to argue about first.
Then there are the GOP primaries.
Steve King has done jobs Bill Richardson and Ava Navarro wont.
The strategy to grant citizenship to massive numbers of immigrants was already used by Democrats during the Clinton administration to boost their chances in the 1996 elections. The Citizenship USA program run by then Vice President Al Gore accelerated the naturalization process for more than 1 million immigrants between August and September. The program organized mass citizenship ceremonies in big city sports stadiums around the country, naturalizing as many as 5,000 immigrants at a time.
As a result of the rush to make the Democrat-leaning immigrants eligible to vote in time for the November election, the Immigration and Naturalization Service failed to conduct fingerprint and background checks on more than 180,000 immigrant applicants. Of all applicants, more than 75,000 were later found by an independent audit to have criminal arrest histories, according to David P. Schippers, the chief counsel for the House Judiciary Committee, who led a congressional investigation of the Citizenship USA program.
Supplementing the Democrats strategy to legalize millions of politically sympathetic new voters, powerful Hispanic advocacy groups and allied left-wing social justice organizations exert tremendous political pressure on Congress and the White House to prevent any reduction in the massive flow of immigration to the U.S. both legal and illegal. Well-financed groups such as the National Council of La Raza and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) work closely with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and left-wing pressure groups to block enforcement of immigration laws as well as construction of effective barrier fencing along the border with Mexico, guaranteeing that the flow of hundreds of thousands of illegals into the U.S. annually continues without interruption. That provides the potential new voters who hold the key to future power.
Following the strategy employed by Bostons James Michael Curley, Detroits Coleman Young and Zimbabwes Robert Mugabe, pro-immigration leaders use incendiary rhetoric to frighten and intimidate their opponents into silence and to generate hatred towards them. Citizens who call for enforcement of immigration laws or border fencing are viciously denounced as racists, Nazis, bigots, and hatemongers.
He votes (sometimes in several districts all on the same day).
He has several drivers' licenses.
When the little rascal's not dealing drugs--- he's cashing US govt checks: UI, SSI, Workmen's Comp, TANF (temporary assistance to needy families), WICS (food assistance), subsidized Section 8 shelter, ObamaPhone subsidies, Utility Assistance subsidies, $5000 a year EITC checks per identity, hefty monthly "asylum" checks from SS ....
Plus he's thrifty---wire transfers large amounts of drug assets and US govt proceeds----for his early retirement in sun-drenched Mexico.
He's applied for in-state tuition to several US colleges (w/ several identities he gets Pell grant checks rolling in regularly).
He's industrious----even applied for a job in Cong Gutierrez's office---where several "Dreamers" are already employed.
NY POST EXCERPT--- Mexican cartels dispatch agents deep inside US - spread into non-border states
CHICAGO (AP) Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the US border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents to live and work deep inside the United States an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the world's most lucrative narcotics market and maximize profits. If left unchecked, authorities say, the cartels' move into the American interior could render the syndicates harder than ever to dislodge and pave the way for them to expand into other criminal enterprises such as prostitution, kidnapping-and-extortion rackets and money laundering.
Some cartels even have Mexican operatives fill out job applications before being dispatched to the US, Riley added.
In Mexico, the cartels are known for a staggering number of killings more than 50,000, according to one tally. Beheadings are sometimes a signature. So far, cartels don't appear to be directly responsible for large numbers of slayings in the United States, though the Texas Department of Public Safety reported 22 killings and five kidnappings in Texas at the hands of Mexican cartels from 2010 through mid- 2011. Still, police worry that increased cartel activity could fuel heightened violence.--SNIP--
In Chicago, the police commander who oversees narcotics investigations, James O'Grady, said street-gang disputes over turf account for most of the city's uptick in murders last year, when slayings topped 500 for the first time since 2008.
Although the cartels aren't dictating the territorial wars, they are the source of drugs. Riley's assessment is stark: He argues that the cartels should be seen as an underlying cause of Chicago's disturbingly high murder rate. "They are the puppeteers," he said. "Maybe the shooter didn't know and maybe the victim didn't know that. But if you follow it down the line, the cartels are ultimately responsible."
We need info on this chick ASAP. She is part and parcel of The Planned Conquest---harboring sub rosa nefarious political ambitions---to organize the Third World into competing pressure groups, voting blocs, and para-military groups----conniving to (1) undermine US ntl security, takeover tshe SW, and, (2) rape the US Treasury.
TAXPAYERS DEMAND AN IMMEDIATE THOROUGH INVESTIGATION. US citizens demand answers WRT nefarious plans to destabilize the US government.

How Navarre smarted off to Rep Steve King, after she flat out lied about his Congressional record, was truly amazing. I know she was on a MSM Sunday show, but she pretty much (tried to) ambush him.
When Rep King came back with facts, about crimes being committed by illegals, this witch retorted/tried to interrupt with "I am NOT undocumented, Congressman!". Rep King NEVER said this. (A bit defensive there, Ms Navarre.)
Mexico, La Raza play a big part in this---US national security is being undermined for Third World nefarious purposes.
Her Third World agit-prop is nauseating---cant wait to get their greedy hands on US tax dollars, foreign aid, and the Southwest.
<><> The Senate "amnesty reform" bill absolves latinos holding US public office---from prosecution for wrongdoing while in office for stuff like government fraud, graft, bribery, selling their votes for cash....the usual politician crimes the pols know so well?
<><> Thw amnesty bill contains a constantly replenished $100 million dollar slush fund for America-hating La Raza.
REFERENCE---"La Raza Studies" do not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans: Raza Studies textbook Occupied America, by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him, (pg. 323).
The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America: .......execute all white males over age 16, (p 167--AKA the Plan of San Diego). America-hating Raza Studies teach (1) violence, (2) undermining US ntl security, and, (3) the need for Mexico to "re- take seven states in the Southwest...in order to make the SW a Chicano nation."
Senator Harry Reid Supports Giving Illegal Aliens Tax Credits for Kids Not Even Living in US
Townhall.com ^ | October 30, 2013 | Mike Shedlock / FR Posted by Kaslin
U.S. Rep. Sam Johnson, R-Texas, left, wants to end the practice of giving illegal immigrants tax credits for kids, but U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., wont let the House-approved measure H.R. 556 through the Senate. "The System is Working Fine" says Senator Harry Reid, even though the Joint Committee on Taxation calculates that enactment of H.R. 556 would save taxpayers $24.4 billion over the next decade.
The House of Representatives repeatedly has passed an IRS bill that could save U.S. taxpayers up to $24.4 billion over the next 10 years but Harry Reids Democratic Senate will not hear it.
The Refundable Child Tax Credit Eligibility Verification Reform Act, or H.R. 556, would require tax filers to provide Social Security numbers to claim child tax credits. Currently, the IRS allows undocumented residents to collect the $1,000 credits for dependents not even living in the country. Watchdog reported that illegal immigrants received $4.2 billion from the tax agency in just one year.
My bill (targets) billions of dollars in waste, fraud and abuse. Instead of hitting up taxpayers for even more taxes, Washington needs to go after these billions of dollars, said U.S. Rep. Sam Johnson, R-Texas.
Though the GOP-controlled House has passed Johnsons measure three times, Senate Majority Leader Reid, D-Nev., refuses to allow the bill to come up for a vote in his chamber. The IRS has been doling out the credit to tax filers claiming children who do not even live in the country, Johnson charged.
<><> Senate Democrats rejected an amendment to the bill that would protect Americans from ID theft. Sen SCHUMER SUCKS UP FOR AMNESTY-- ON RECORD AS AIDING AND AETTING FELONIES SCHUMER: "When people are living in undocumented status, there are times, I suppose, when they've made up identities, made up (or stolen) Social Security numbers. How are they going to remember all that? (The) purpose of this bill is to bring people out of the shadows. We all know when they lived in the shadows, they had to forge documents, forge Social Security numbers, et cetera. I just don't see how, when you've lived here 10 years, and you've had many different identities, many different numbers, you're going to remember them all," said Schumer.
NOTE ---- healthcare.gov is ALSO a voter registration site-----AND a SNAP site to apply for govt benefits.
NOTE----the most underinsured population are illegals.
<><> (1) illegal invaders use chains and pipes to tie themselves to buses that carry immigrants slated for deportation to court,
<><> (2) block traffic on Capitol Hill and get arrested,
<><> (3) surround Tucson police when they targeted two immigrants during a traffic stop,
<><>(4) chain themselves and block the entrance of a federal detention center.
<><> (5) A mob of invaders pelted border patrol agents when they tried to halt the invasion.
More such actions, they vow, are coming..... indicative of the invaders' unmitigated contempt for Amertcan laws..
The hate-filled "just here for a better life" connivers are moving into a calculated plan to undermine US ntl security, and the safety and security of all Americans.
Americans value civility---we consider our laws sacrosanct and inviolate. The utter contempt these invaders hold for America and American law was never more virulent.
These are violent, conniving invaders---- establishing a separate country with their own laws on US soil ---- EXCEPT---the greed-fueled invaders are using OUR tax dollars to foment the takeover.
The invaders are being coached by Mexico and other Third Worlds to undermine US ntl security and tear down democracy. Clearly the pressure is building across the border, as conniving Mexico pushes North to begin Reconquista. Obama is facilitating the invasion---he hates America as much as the invaders do.
Let's not forget---the Mexican border is the staging area for global terrorists, the criminal latino uderworld, Third World lowlifes, drug cartels, savage latinos, and the like..... come to Mexico to crossover into the US.
It's open season to conduct dirty deeds. Vicious Mexican gangs and drug cartels are operating freely across the border, setting up shop, right under the noses of vote-crazed US pols who will do anything to stay in power.
<><> is she now,or has she ever been, a member of violent reconquista groups--like La Raza?
<><> how many govt checks is she cashing?
<><> did she falsify govt documents to get a Senate job?
<><> does she pay taxes on all of her income?
<><> does she have a valid SS number?
<><> does she have a valid driver's license?
<><> does she receive payment(s) from foreign entities?
<><> does she receive payments from tax-exempt latino groups?
<><> is she listed as a lobbyist for other organizations?
<><> who pays her rent?
