If President Obama thought that state governors would have an open door policy to letting his administration place thousands of unaccompanied Central American children in their state, he is in for a surprise. According to Fox News, a growing number of state governors are saying not so fast to Obamas effort to relocate thousands of illegal alien children from Central America with alleged friends or family members.
Sylvia Matthews Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services met with dozens of governors on Sunday at the National Governors Association summer meeting in Nashville. Her goal for the meeting was to listen to the rising concerns that the stat leaders had with providing care and even public education for the children, who supposedly would be shown the door to the border in a short while.
Secretary Burwell, apparently did not want to disclose her presence or the governors disdain to reporters after the meeting and managed to leave the confab through a side door, reported Fox News.
Although the Obama official was too timid to speak with reporters, Colorado Democrat Governor did give his opinion, saying, However we deal with the humanitarian aspects of this, weve got to do it in the most cost-effective way possible, according to Fox News.
Republican governors were critical about the administrations plans, including Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. They raised an important point about Obamas plan to deal with the crisis by placing these children with supposed legal relatives. In fact, administration officials have offered no plan to check the legal immigration status of the families in question. So in effect, Obamas efforts could be locating illegal children in homes of illegal relatives and illegal friends.
Due to Obamas 2012 Executive Order which allowed nearly one million illegal aliens to gain a free ride card to stay in America, many conservatives believe that this will be the case for the 57,000 illegal Central American children already in America since last October.
Heck, place them here:
The Greenbrier, 300 W. Main Street, White Sulphur Springs, WV 24986
Heck, put them at Camp David.
Like here in Ct POS Maloy said no to one specific location..you can bet your ass he suggested or will suggest others,wait!
This has been going on for over a month. I’d say the Governors are in FAIL mode, so far.
Put them in the field houses at Univ of Maryland and Trinity College in Hartford, CT
University of Nebraska field house in Lincoln Nebraska
Any public official who supports this invasion is a traitor. THEY should deported also.
This has been going on for over a month. Id say the Governors are in FAIL mode, so far.
AGREE!! So far, Gov Perry (here in TX) is an epic FAIL on this. Wonder what he thinks about the $50M resort in Weslaco, where illegals will be *housed*.
I’m sure the fine folks at Sidwell Friends will be happy to take a hundred or so.
Good, the governors of the states need to really crack down on over intrusions by the feds. Last time I checked, the feds are constitutionally obligated to provide services to the states, NOT LORD OVER THEM.
Free the states, starve the fed beast, take the “United States” back from the fed tyrants.
Finally the Imprisoned States of America are complaining about their condition. Better late then never.
Politicians are governed by two emotions - arrogance and fear.
Up till now, the politicians from both parties have been in full throttle overweening arrogance node, and their hubris has finally caught up to them
The events of the last few weeks have shown them that the American electorate is really pissed off and that they are mobilizing and preparing a backlash of monumental proportions.
This has beaten down their arrogance and they are rapidly moving into fear mode.
As the Democrats are realizing how badly this is being played for them in the African American community, fear is transitioning into flop sweat terror.
By the time the American electorate realizes the magnitude and the seriousness of this manufactured invasion of illegal aliens , tar and feathers will not be out of the question.
Why do the governors not stop this?
Governors be damned, Hussein can and is placing these ILLEGAL aliens anywhere he chooses. And there is nothing anyone can do about it.
***Due to Obamas 2012 Executive Order which allowed nearly one million illegal aliens to gain a free ride card to stay in America...***
Whoa! I missed this one. Was this part of one of those ‘Friday news dumps’? Hard to keep up with all the treason when you work for a living.
and they shall call her Sylvia “side door” Burwell. In typical Rat fashion, she scurries out of sight as that is how evil works in the shadows and behind the curtain.
“This has been going on for over a month.... Id say the Governors are in FAIL mode, so far....”
And continues unabated, duped, dumb, un-American, Governor in name only are a few things that come to mind...Now Russia is setting up in Cuba....The World Order has the run on this once great country and they know it...They are going for broke....
dump them off @ Gitmo since Osama is clearing that place of real terrorists. The “kids” will love all the ammenities at the Gitmo Resort.
Park the Katrina trailers on the lawn of the White House and let moochelle feed them from her garden.
Except that some of them already have been duped.
The placement of children has been going on since at least April. Most governors, like the citizenry, didn’t even know about the Invasion of Children until just a few weeks ago.
Let’s see.. Martha’s vineyard is a good place to put a few thousand, Hiannis. Nancy Pelosi has expressed an interest in the illegal children. Place 100 or so there. God there are so many places to put these kids besides in our towns.
Yeah...it’s interesting how Perry asks that Obama call out the National Guard for border control....
but he fails to do anything himself. What’s he waiting for? Christmas? Or is he just doing a little lip service to make it appear as if he’s concerned about the Texas border? Not convincing, Rick.
No EBT funding would equate to instant riots in every major city.
Perhaps, but think of it the other way: what if the governor treated it like an invasion and acted appropriately, calling on the National Guard to [forcibly] seal the border and then demanded help from the Federal government under Art IV, Sec IV and then that happened?
It'd give a lot of emotionally-charged credence to the claim that the federal government was retaliating against the State — and that would be some damning allegations considering the Constitution's definition of Treason.
Saying they don’t want illegals camped in their state is one thing. Actually putting a stop to it is another. Station the state guards around those camps and dare the feds to cross the line. These governors need to be on tv 24/7 and bringing the message to the people. You know, We the People. Those of us who are US citizens and taxpayers.
It's kabuki play — he's saying stuff, refusing to do what he can, and making it seem like his hands are tied.
This is a common tactic in Congress with things that are their responsibility but whith which they wish to avoid accountability — they can't regulate the Dollar's value, because that's the Federal Reserve's job (and they can't audit the reserve either, because of… reasons), Carbon Credits too wonky to force on the general population? No problem! Just have the EPA make regulation changes and keep funding them even while whining and throwing a [for show] temper-tantrum. The public is upset about the NSA collecting all their information? Make some semi-outraged statements, make some excuses (terrorists, don'cha know!), and then continue funding the agency. And so on, and so on.
But, but Perry promised millions of tax dollars in for the guard to go to the border!!! Yeah, whatever. Just another of Perry’s sticking his finger in the wind after the fact. I’d like to see those troops on the border actually turning illegals back. Not holding my breath because we all know it isn’t going happen. Just like he’s done nothing about all those illegals living in East Austin within view of his office window.
Blue state Govs are doing more than Perry’s doing, on this invasion/camp situation.
Perry’s *response* has been pathetic.
Obama comes to visit Texas and sits Rick Perry in the corner across from a staffer, that speaks volumes. This current administration is completely lawless and is going to continue the destruction of what is left of American culture and values..
Rick Perry knows that even Texas is very dependent on Federal money and that if cut off , Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El paso, and Austin would burn.
The governors can get on tv, radio etc and point back to the democrats what they are doing. They just keep letting everything slide.
At least some are showing who is in charge> Some headlines from Drudge
BACKTRACK: MD governor asks White House NOT to send illegals to his state...
CT rejects children...
Tents. White House lawn. Better yet a certain property in Chicago.
The BCFS (group that WAS going to put up illegals in a S TX resort) CEO is a Perry donor. Could this be why Perry is pretty much silent on this resort/BCFS camps initiative?
Perry’s silence (and inaction) is deafeningly curious.
