ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A 9-year-old boy with a massive tumor was whisked from a dangerous neighborhood in Mexico in an armored vehicle by U.S. agents and taken across the border for treatment in New Mexico, his family said.
The boy and his parents were snatched Thursday from the gang-infested neighborhood in Ciudad Juarez one of the deadliest cities in the world after members of a New Mexico Baptist church saw him near an orphanage and sought help.
The parents of the child, identified by officials only as Jose to protect his family, said the tumor on his shoulder and neck has grown so large that it affects his eyesight and could move into his heart.
With no money for medical care, the family sought treatment in Juarez and El Paso, but did not receive any help removing the tumor, which has afflicted Jose since birth.
Si Budagher, pastor of First Baptist Church of Rio Rancho, N.M., said church members spotted the boy while doing missionary work and felt compelled to help him...

Obama needs all the votes he can get.
So now butch and her stormtroopers are into kidnapping?
Last time this happened it was Elian Gonzalez and they sent him back to that island paradise run by one of their own.
Commiecrats never cease to amaze me.
The anti american open border socialist frauds in the obama regime must be politically destroyed in November. They favor the criminal over the victim. Foreigners over citizens. The democrat party has sunk so low under the FOREIGNERS REIGN I would not even call them americans.
I disagree. The clown who approved this at DHS should pay out of his/her own pocket.
“So now butch and her stormtroopers are into kidnapping?”
It appears there was parental consent (and gratitude).
I think the whisking, kidnapping angle to this reporting is not helpful.
Mexico has universal healthcare. They are the 10th richest nation on Earth. We are such stupid chumps.
With no money for medical care, the family sought treatment in Juarez and El Paso...
But Mexico has socialized medicine...
The boy is in Mexico, his parents are in Mexico and DENISE GUTIERREZ of the UNITED STATES DEPT OF HOMELAND SECURITY decided to MOVE THEM from Mexico using DHS resources and the Border Patrol?
HOW is this DHS territory?
And, seriously, he's called "Jose" to protect his parents as if no one will notice the boy with a massive tumor is missing, no one will recognize him and connect the dots?
Are we that naive?
The "clown" appears to be identified as Denice Gutierrez in the article.

You are correct. Denise needs to start forking over some cash.
I wonder what grade and salary level Denise Gutierrez is. And I wonder what her “Victim’s Assistance” position’s job description is. And precisely WHAT LAW authorized her and the various US government agencies to do this? I believe that there are actually laws against committing public funds and using government resources for private “missions”.
I’m not against individuals and private groups doing and financing things such as this, but when did it become our government’s responsibility?
