Rick Perry: Feds gobble up available rooms for illegal children --- nothing left for Texans
Washington Examiner ^ | 06/19/2014 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 06/19/2014 11:24:05 AM PDT by Rusty0604

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said that the federal government has taken up every bit of spare available space in his state to house the tens of thousands of illegal children flooding over the U.S. border, leaving him with no rooms for Texans who might be left homeless in a natural disaster like a hurricane.

Federal authorities are housing the youths in hotels and even military bases while they search for relatives to turn them over to.

After Hurricane Katrina, he said, many homeless Texans needed housing, but now there isn't anything left as the next hurricane season begins.

Perry, considering another run for the presidency, said that he told the White House two years ago about the problem with young illegals crossing over the border but was ignored.

But now that it is a crisis, he said, they are playing catch-up. “They don’t address something unless it becomes an absolute catastrophe,” said Perry.

They entered from Mexico, return them to Mexico.

Lastnight while watching the national news as I do not have cable, something struck me as being odd about these people entering our country.

One fell into the arms of a border patrol agent, I believe it was as they arrived across the border.

All of them looked like they were clean and had clean clothes on, and looked nothing like someone who was walking a great distance to our borders.

Not only encourages it, they are facilitating it. Fedgov is transporting illegal aliens across the country to deposit them in states such as Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New York - which borders Canada! Why not transport them to their point of entry: Mexico.

This is true. baraq is going to cause a reintroduction of diseases we had previously eradicated.
Add to that, all his other policies are intended to harm this country. So this fits the pattern.

Local radio station reported yesterday that the Honduran ambassador said that Honduras does not want their kids back and will not accept them — they are the US problem now.

What are these children enduring during this bizarre grab for financial gain, what kind of Hispanic family values turns their kids loose to become international refugees, for greed, like sacrificial lambs?

Don’t buy that-it is designed to play on your sympathies so you won’t want la migra to send the illegals back-

The only great distance they walked was from the panel truck or van belonging to a coyote/human trafficker to the nearest border patrol station...

along the way through Mexico, there are aid stations set up where the illegals can get a sandwich, a hot shower and fresh clothes. Once here, there are groups (such as the Catholic church highlighted in the video below) that also hand out free clothes and stuffed animals and such for the little ones.

Imagine dual citizenship and retiring to your family and homeland, wealthy and collecting SS or disability and also being able to fly here for medical care, or a second home.

Dear Mr. Perry,

Obama doesn’t care about Texans or citizens.

This is insane. The country is being invaded, and our government encourages it.

I would say, they are not only encouraging it, they are directing it from start to finish. I am not much into conspiracy theories, but I believe in two conspiracies. One is global warming. The other is this 3rd world invasion. Both are deliberate, and both are designed to damage the country.

It seems to me that whatever foreign “aid” the US is sending to Honduras now must be redirected to pay the costs of this unwanted “problem”.

And a new punishing tax should be placed on all products imported to the US from Honduras — to pay the costs of “the children”.

And a new punitive withholding tax should be imposed on any money transfer to any entity in Honduras.

And the ownership of any ship or aircraft that lands in the US after landing in Honduras must be confirmed by a new, possibly years-long physical review of every paper record associated with that asset, which we can imagine.

And Americans should be sternly warned about the dangers of being a tourist in Honduras — including putting them “in quarantine” when those tourists return to the US.

Of course, citizens of Honduras need not apply for visas.
