White House Hides Data, Blames GOP, For Border Flood
Daily Caller ^ | 06/10/2014 | Neil Munro

Posted on 06/10/2014 9:23:14 AM PDT by Rusty0604

A White House official said the GOP’s refusal to back the unpopular Democrat-drafted Senate immigration bill has caused the wave of young illegal immigrants that are sweeping over America’s border with Mexico.

The child migration is a symptom of the nation’s broken immigration system, the official said, and the responsibility for not fixing it “lies at the feet of the U.S. Congress,” the official said in a June 9 press call with reporters. The two White House officials on the call asked that they not be identified by name.

The administration’s secrecy is important, because officials have been trying to portray the inflow as a rush of innocent children fleeing persecution, gangs and brutal fathers, not a flood of low-skilled illegals across a porous border and into a new legal sanctuary created by Obama.

However, a second White House official on the call admitted that many illegal immigrants come across the border as families.

“We are also seeing large number of family units… mostly mothers with young children,” the official said. “They’re provided with food, they’re provided with water, for their journeys” north to meet with relatives already living in the United States, the official added.

Passage of the Senate’s immigration bill is the president’s top legislative priority, said the first White House official.

If made law, it would double the annual inflow of low-wage guest workers and new immigrants to roughly 4 million per year for a decade. That’s roughly equal to the number of Americans who turn 18 each year.

Four million immigrants a year for ten years seems like a lot of "worker" to me. Our young citizens will have an even harder time finding employment.

These children didn’t walk a thousand miles and Mexico didn’t simply let them pass though unescorted.

Congress needs to ask some questions.

The GOP-E Leadership in the US House, (Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan), is always gullible to Obama’s tricks.

Consequently, Boehner, Cantor and Ryan, have all pledged to ram through this unpopular Obama Amnesty Bill due to Obama’s illegal decision to flood the USA with children from Mexico and Central America.

It is time to kick the GOP-E out of Congressional Leadership!

If the Chief Executive (who could not run a lemonade stand) would enforce our laws, this would not be happening. He, and only he, is the blame for this latest fiasco.

These are Mexico’s problem — they are passing through their territory to get here and yet we are told for years that Mexico’s border is so well policed.

Tell them to police it and feed the refugees themselves.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-AZ; Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC; Sen. John McCain, R-AZ; Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL.
Yeah, they share some of the blame. Yay GOP-e!
`Bi-partisanship’ = American public gets a screwing.

Obama needs to finish off America permanently; as if he hasn’t already.

Therefore, illegal immigration amnesty will be the capstone. It will allow him and his 1% buddies to continue to shaft Americans out of jobs, while they make extra profit margins on illegal immigrants.

Boehner is passed out on the 19th hole and unavailable for comment.

I got ten pesos that says the Mexican government is picking them up at the southern border and bussing over the northern border. Done and done.

And now Obama wants 2 Billion dollars to process these illegals. I bet the GOP can’t wait to give it to him to prove they are not racists.

The current immigration laws are not broken. Just unenforced.

“Our young citizens will have an even harder time finding employment”

Guess they could mow the yards or keep house for the illegals that have the good jobs.

Obama, his minions and their dhimmi gop-e may have outsmarted themselves here as well.
If this is a conscious strategy on the part of the WH and Gang of Eight, it looks likely to `backfire’: like trading four (4) Taliban field grade officers for one American `POW’.
Bam-bam was quick to take credit for that, until it started `resonating’ with the American public, then it became a hot potato. Now this childrens’ crusade has become the dhimmis’ fault. Every time Obama blows it, an administration hack gets his wings clipped.
So here he goes again ....

A local TV station in Texas recently issued a telling report. They revealed that information is being disseminated in Central America urging people to make the life-threatening trek north in pursuit of amnesty: “A mother and child told Channel 5 News that the message being disseminated in their country is, ‘go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away.’”

The New York Times reported last week that an illegal immigrant youth said: “If you make it, they take you to a shelter and take care of you and let you have permission to stay… When you appeal your case, if you say you want to study, they support you.”

This would be akin to the Roman emperor helping Visigoth hordes cross the Danube frontier in 376 AD, which brought about the end of the western empire.

So if we passed this, they would have stayed in mexico? Im not seeing the logic here.

What kind of inhuman people are these Central Americans? They abandon their own children and force them to cross the desert with no food and water. If it wasn’t for the evil white gringos, these children would have been eaten by wolves.

The Beast Trains

Riding 'The Beast' Across Mexico To The U.S. Border

There's a network of freight trains that runs the length of Mexico, from its southernmost
border with Guatemala north to the United States. In addition to grain, corn or scrap
metal, these trains are carrying an increasing number of undocumented immigrants whose
aim is to cross into the U.S.

And despite the many deadly challenges it poses, more and more children — both with
adults and alone — have been making the risky journey. That prompted President Obama this
week to warn of "an urgent humanitarian situation."

These aren't passenger trains; there are no panoramic windows, seats or even a roof
to guard from sun or rain. People call the train La Bestia, or The Beast. Some call it
the Death Train.
