Skip to comments.Some Unaccompanied Foreign Children Receiving Better Care than US Foster Kids
Posted on 06/15/2014 7:40:19 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
On June 13, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson told reporters in a press conference that the federal government would do what was in the best interest of thousands of unaccompanied alien children (UACs) crossing the border into south Texas every week. He also denied that the taxpayer-funded care being provided to them was serving as an incentive to Central American families to send more of their children. But a closer look at the services UACs are receiving while they go through removal proceedings tells a different story.
Over the last several weeks, US Border Patrol stations in south Texas have been overrun with illegal immigrants from mostly Central America. Johnson said that since October 2013, agents have apprehended over 47,000 UACs, roughly double the 24,000 UACs who were apprehended the previous fiscal year. Prior to 2012, the average number of UACs under US government supervision averaged around 7,500 kids. According to procedures outlined in the Homeland Security Act of 2002, he stated the goal was to transport these children in a safe and human manner to the US Department of Health and Human Services, where they would be cared for by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).
The primary goal of the ORR is to reunited UACs with family members or other legal guardians in the United States while they go through removal proceedings. However, if those family members or guardians are in the country illegally, there was no indication by DHS officials that those individuals would also be placed into removal proceedings despite the fact they have to provide a considerable amount of identification in order to claim a UAC....

Craaaaaap!!!!! So once they have a moniker UAC (unacommpanied alien children) you know they aren’t going anywhere. They had to have made this term up this week as before then there was no reason to have this word.
And, better treatment than our vets, too.
Disgusting....our tax $$ are paying for this *care* and we have no recourse.
I like Sarah Palin’s suggestion...that the ONLY expenditure that should be made (on these *children*), should be for jet-fuel, to return them home.
Where are Govs Brewer and Perry?? Where is the TX National Guard?
Why not? Illegal aliens can remain here indefinitely without paying U.S. taxes. Try that as a mere U.S. Citizen.
These countries are sending all their problems here..You cannot tell me all these borders from Honduras to Mexico are not being told look the other way and let them cross without any problems..Kids are making trips that others pay thousands of dollars to make that same trip..But the kids can do so without smugglers and make it all the way to the U.S.Border....Everything is not as it seems..
You see this pattern, again and again:
At Gitmo they have 1.5 medical people devoted to EACH inmate there, on average, while our vets get on secret death lists.
The pain ray? That HUMVEE-mounted microwave that induces skin surface pain among a rioting mob ? They couldn’t field it abroad because they hadn’t yet tested it on AMERICANS.
Driving w/o a license? In many parts of Calif illegals doing it are routinely let off, while our people face the full fine.
We are getting to the point where the gummint appears to want to simply TRADE US IN for a different set of followers.
Lots of other examples, too.
Replace the Feds at the Southern US Border with armed STATE National Guard Troops, and miles and miles of Concertina Wire, Mortars firing tear gas and flash-bang canisters as far into Mexico as possible.
These countries are sending all their problems here
Wrong....The “Regime” is importing foreign nationals in order to affect chaos.
We are screwed unless we do the thing which, for now, must be left unspoken.
Doesn't this make the ‘inequality’ ratio numbers just look worse? Importing more impoverished?
Anyone talk about this at the recent Romney-RINOfest? They were too busy talking about how they need these peoples votes.
Better yet, taxpayers demand you do something in "our" best interests.
The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers asserted: "This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes."
Vote crazed Democrats---desperate over losing seats in 2014---are conniving to get taxpayers to buy them these illegal votes----the Dummycrats are requesting $2 billion tax dollars (for starters) to subsidize the swarm at the border.
Dummycrats are using the "Clinton vote-trading formula---let so may illegals in--get so many votes."
Joe Biden has been thoroughly briefed by the DNC: Speaking to a National Association of Manufacturers, Biden called for a "constant, unrelenting stream' of new immigrants not dribbling (but) significant flows," The Hill reported....
TRANSLATION FROM DUMMYCRAP BAFFLE-GAB: "let 'em pour in to get the votes we need---and extort taxpayers to subsidize the vote-getting scheme."
ALIPAC.COM---- Congress toll-free numbers:
Flood the Congress w/ Phone calls-- we will not subsidize vote-buyiung schemes. No tax dollars for illegals.
