Skip to comments.Texas Congressman Refuses to Be Kept Away From Border Patrol Facility and Has a Message for Obam
Posted on 06/15/2014 7:44:15 PM PDT by moonshinner_09
McALLEN, Texas While reporters were kept from entering the McAllen Border Patrol station on Saturday where roughly 1,000 illegal immigrants mainly children were being held, a local Texas congressman made clear he wasnt going to be kept out, and spent several hours talking to the children and Border Patrol agents inside.
Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, told TheBlaze he wanted to see for himself the difficult conditions the Border Patrol agents are dealing with concerning the large migration of people from Central America to the U.S. over the past eight months. He also wanted to check on the condition of the children being temporarily housed in the overcrowded facility in the Rio Grande Valley border sector.Ive been saying, Use the nonprofits, use the churches dont just use the taxpayers dollars to take care of these young kids, Cuellar said. [President Barack Obama] still has a long way to go to improve this. Dont just listen to the words of the bureaucrats up there in Washington, listen to the men and women that work here. The men and women of the Border Patrol know whats going on here.Another facility is expected to open July 11 to process the children who are now being held with adults at the McAllen station. In the past several weeks, the U.S. Coast Guard, Federal Emergency Management Agency and the national service program AmeriCorps have sent specialists to help take care of the childrens needs and to alleviate some of the strain on the overworked agents.

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.
The whole thing is an engineered operation to force amnesty and there should be jail time for every dem and GOP that IS responsible.
Paging Senator Ted Cruz from TEXAS.
Go to these facilities and show America what an idiot we have as pResident. But most of us already know that.
Everybody is treating this guy like some kind of hero but I see an opportunist democrat playing a role that serves Obama and no one else.
States Governors + National Guard + Planes = deport them back to where they came from.
Isn’t that curious....I know some Americans who built a second home in Honduras and just love the people and the place.
I imagine by “economic problems” they mean they can get more with less effort in the US.
Deport. Problem solved.
This crisis is manufactured by not enforcing existing law.
“The whole thing is an engineered operation to force amnesty and there should be jail time for every dem and GOP that IS responsible.”
Bingo. You win the door prize.
These people were coached on what to say on their bus ride up here. Walking 1000 miles, my a#$. Of course, the dem believes them hook, line and sinker.
12 years old —she did not get here by herself
that is a lie
As heart rending as things might be, there are billions of potential poor young illegals waiting.
Where IS the governor of TEXAS, the senators and the representatves, anyway? Where are the state rights of the people of TEXAS?
WTH are the PEOPLE of TEXAS, come to think of it?
This tells me Americans will sit on their netherregion until these illegals busust through the door.
What will bring us to our feet, I wonder?
This is clearly an attempt by Barky and his minions to overwhelm our system and force a blanket amnesty for all illegals.
Can no one else truly see that this Community Organizer is attempting to utilize feel-good politics in order to bring about his deranged one-world fantasy Utopia?
“Isnt that curious....I know some Americans who built a second home in Honduras and just love the people and the place.”
Honduras has, by far, the highest murder rate in the world. Since 2008, there have been 50 murders of US citizens in Honduras. Two of the case have been solved. Our state department has a travel advisory out.
Why hasn’t Perry sent the Rangers to take control of the border?
This guy would like to see Obama palm off 35,000 illegal orphans a month onto TEXAS churches? What are churches but the people who fill them? Relieve the taxpayers, he says! Well church people ARE taxpayers.
This is invasion! And here we sit!
A democrat “refusing” to be kept away? OK, I was born in the morning, but not THIS morning. This is nothing but the Obama regime trying to sway public opinion.
If Perry sends in the TEXAS State National Guard, it will show that he stands for TEXAS.
If Perry doesn’t send in the TEXAS State National Guard, it will show he stands for Obama.
Tick-tock, Gov. Perry, tick-tock.
Obama will get away with this, just like everything else.
Have we heard from any Republicans concerning this outrage? No, we haven’t...and we won’t.
The midterms and the 2016 presidential elections really don’t matter at this point. The damage has been done. The “fundamental transformation” is almost complete.
So why not just go to Mexico -- it's closer.
Hmm...maybe they’re in an off the beaten path area...
Thanks for the info!
I’ve said it before. Read The Camp of the Saints. This book has been around for decades.
Sooner or later the light will come on.
He's no hero, what I see him trying to do is move these kids out of the hands of Border Patrol and into the hands of those friendly to the illegals. His don't use taxpayer funds is Bolshevik because that is exactly what mr. mulato and the demonrats have in mind. Once again Domo Arigato mr. mulato.
Is anyone looking into just how all these refugees are making their way here supposedly without a lot of help? This doesn’t smell just right & it seems like it came about rather hurriedly.
They are all voters for the Democrat party..that does add up.
There are millions and millions of $ missing from State. I believe we’re paying for these children’s trips.
He increased foreign aid too. Some went for this, some to his communist/muslim agendas, some to his offshore accounts.
all nice and tidy. It leaves the country via foreign aid, they ‘spend it’ and he sends more.
but yes, I think you are also right. He multitasks financially.
States Rights? States Rights? This ain't the 19th Century Rita. The states have no rights. Starting with Lincoln right on though obama, what states rights we had in 1860 have have been usurped and nullified.
The only way to change this is to repeal every amendment passed in the 20th Century. Starting with the 16th.
Correct. A staged event.
Use a greyhound bus and dump them in the compound of the nearest Mexican Consulate and forbid them to leave. Why in the name of God do we have to be responsible for the children of others?
More Cloward-Piven. You got it.
Not that long ago an odd thing happened on the border in CA...I think it was at Otey Mesa crossing...many illegals came to cross the border, not all together but they all had the same story. They were all claiming to be in fear of their lives from cartel people, all asking for asylum or refugee status or whatever it is. The short story is they all used the magic words that would allow them to stay and get a hearing to see if they could stay here permanently. They were released with a hearing date about a year away to determine if their story was true and they really were in danger. Obviously they had been coached, and just as obviously they will not show up at their hearing.
The Customs, ICE, Border Patrol or whatever agency it was that dealt with the illegals with the same story were pretty disgruntled and one spoke to a reporter. The government used no resources to find out who coached the illegals and try to figure out how to deal with that issue without just letting them in and releasing them...but I guess there was a major investigation to try to find out who talked to the reporter.
I found this article about those claiming they were in fear to gain entry:
Sure looks organized to me.
It is like saying Jorge Ramos refuses to be kept away from asking the “tough question” on why Boehner and Obama haven’t achieved total amnesty.
Go South? Did you notice that none of the children head south? If they don;'t head south, it means that their goal is obviously to seek the good life in the the United States, and not merely to "escape" violence as many of the children claim.
Follow the children: If a child says he came to find his parents, then check out the parents to see if they are here illegally.
Pass this law: Illegal immigrant children must remain in state that they first enter, like Texas, until they are processed. The children cannot be shipped all over the country like Obama does now. Such a law may finally put pressure on Obama to do something.
Now I read that Obama is flying these immigrants to places like Massachusetts. Aren't Guatemala and Honduras closer to Texas than Massachusetts?
Why not fly them back to Guatemala and Honduras?
If Perry sends in the TEXAS State National Guard, it will show that he stands for TEXAS.
The Texas Governor only has complete control of the Texas Rangers and the Texas State Guard (TXSG) and they have been assisting in trying to stem the flow of illegals and drugs on the Texas border.
The Governor cannot activate the National Guard without approval from the Feds.
” - - - The Governor cannot activate the National Guard without approval from the Feds. - - - “
Obama will do nothing but beat him gums and then go golfing.
Activate the TEXAS National Guard!
Save TEXAS, and thus save America!
The cancellation of American Idol?
If Brewer sends in the ARIZONA State National Guard, it will show that she stands for ARIZONA.
If Brewer doesnt send in the ARIZONA State National Guard, it will show she stands for Obama.
Tick-tock, Gov. Brewer, tick-tock.
Re: video of Ted & Megyn - he talks about the illegals issue, at about the 5:42 mark in the video.
At last, Beitbart-Texas posts up a story out of Houston that reports the circulation of a Texas petition started this weekend for Gov. Perry to call in the Texas legislature to send to the border state troops and officers to secure the Texas border.
