Border Sheriff Likens Influx Of Illegal Immigrants To Hurricane Katrina
cbs ^

Posted on 06/11/2014 9:39:09 AM PDT by traumer

SOUTH TEXAS (KRLD) – Officials say that nearly a thousand illegal immigrants a day are crossing into Texas from Mexico, an anomaly that is now being compared to Hurricane Katrina.

“How do you prepare for that?” says Don Ray, the Executive Director of the Texas Border Sheriffs Coalition. “You can’t have an influx of people like that without having an impact; I think we saw that after Katrina. It’s relocation services that are really taking place. In the case of Katrina, most of them were United States citizens or people that were here lawfully, and now you have people that aren’t here lawfully.”

Ray says that with that sort of influx of people crossing illegally into Texas from various parts of Mexico and Central America, there are public health concerns. “You have that many people in one place — you have the potential for illnesses that could spread that could have an impact on the local community.”

More: Flood Of Immigrants At US Border Causing Issues It’s a concern that’s shared in Nogales, Arizona, where most of the illegal immigrants captured in Texas are being shipped to temporary housing and processing facilities.

“When you put 1,000 or 1,500 people in just some little facility and they just came from another country, you never know what they’re bringing into the country,” says Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

A few well placed M-60s would stem this tidal wave.

Key difference being that with Katrina, we were at least trying to help American citizens. The foreign invasion from Central America is a sieve of criminals demanding scarce resources. There can be no doubt that all the amnesty talk only encourages more of it.

What??? And cut into the US supply of ethanol?

My impression is that a lot of immigrants when they first arrive in the US, perhaps especially poor ones, have healthy eating habits based on native diets. Some of these adolescents, if they're from poor self-sufficient communities might be used to eating healthier foods.

What is wrong with the US? These children should be sent home. Isn't that what US citizens would expect if our children travelled unaccompanied to a foreign land? Anything else would be considered kidnapping even if the minors want to stay.

It would be a massive undertaking, but the only solution is to bus them to DC. Arizona could bus them to California.

Where are these people crossing the border in droves. There aren’t coming across
at the ports of entry so there must be locations that they typically come to. Anyone know?

The answer is Cargo Planes.

Start loading these people up on as many cargo planes as you can get here. Men, women and children. Get them out.

I have a somewhat different idea for returning the illegal immigrants to their home country:

When were U.S. taxpayers asked if they wanted to adopt 100,000 children from primitive societies this year? I must have missed that vote.

actually, I call this Obama’s Mariel Boatlift.

When the dust settles, I’m betting we will find that his government was passing out brochures in Latin America promising free residency to children in the former USA.

We used to hold Anti-Immigration rallies outside of RINO Saxby Chambliss’s office in Atlanta here in GA. At one point there were well over 2,000 people there, Americans from all walks of life. The Tea Party should get more involved in this movement. Rats will for sure play the race card regardless of the facts, we should be past that and just ignore their argument.

How about some economic warfare? Boycott your landscaper and lawncare provider, boycott your local Mexican restaurant. Contract American companies for your house work. Nothing like letting the well run dry for these businesses that support this anarchy & send them back slowly to their place of origin. If you know of a business that employs illegals, don’t do business with them—report them (to the USICS) for failing to use E-Verify. Leftists are trying to overwhelm our system with immigrants—two can play at that game if we overwhelm everybody with complaints.

Writing your Congressman is probably in vain—maybe so, but do it anyways—or better yet call them! Call them many times ;)

I’m sure there are much smarter people on FR with much better ideas.

Great effort was made by the Clinton administration to send Elian Gonzalez home to Cuba.

The same effort should be made to send these kids home to their families.

I have reported businesses that hired illegals and paid them under the table to tax and worker’s comp insurance authorities, but I never saw any results.

Why aren't you doing your own landscaping and lawncare, anyway? It's cheaper than a gym membership!

The Obama Third World Import Company is deliberately bringing these people in. They bring diseases, they don’t speak English, they have no marketable skills, and they have no allegiance to the USA.

The purpose of the tsumani the regime has unleashed upon us is to obliterate our sovereignty. Say farewell to the rule of law and civil behavior.

The devil is smiling. I left Houston in 2005 partially b/c of the thousands of Katrina refuges Mayor White invited. Many never left.

Initially we were told that it was only fair that innocent children who are here illegally through their parents’ immigration and who grew up here more or less as Americans should not be punished. Now it has morphed into opening the floodgates for kids whose parents are not here, kids who did not grow up in this country. All by design. The best way to quickly and permanently lower the standard of living in America is to import Third World poverty by the never-ending busload. Agenda 21.

These illigals should be flown directly to New York, Boston and DC. Those are the folks that seem to want them here.

Forgive me for C&P’ing my comment to other posters:

Please spread the word. I don’t think even FReepers understand the enormity of this. I am not being melodramatic when I give our country 2 years.
