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.
