McCain, Graham Open To Emergency Refugee Program For Immigrant Children
The Daily Caller / Reuters ^ | June 28, 2014 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 06/29/2014 1:00:52 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Some Congressional leaders are coming out in support of creating an emergency refugee program that they believe would help deal with a massive surge of child immigrants coming to the U.S. from Central America.

Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain said that establishing refugee application programs in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador is “key” to help stem the tide, according to Reuters.

Since October, 52,000 Unaccompanied Children, or UACs, have been apprehended at the U.S. border. That is up from 6,000 in 2011. Another 39,000 parents with children have been apprehended as well. The surge has strained resources at the border and left U.S. immigration agencies and lawmakers scrambling.

South Carolina U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham – who, like McCain, backs immigration reform – is considering the idea of an emergency program as well.

“We’d be able to make a more intelligent decision about what’s legitimate and you wouldn’t have the problem of people showing up, dropped off at the door,” he told Reuters. “That makes sense to me.”(continued)

The ones that get refused will stay in their home countries and not attempt to illegally immigrate.

It is like illegals who get deported. They go home and they accept it. They never return.

Here’s another idea: We run ‘Skipper’ McCain and his little buddy Gilligan out of the country, and declare war on Mexico.

They are NOT immigrants. STOP LYING!

If you do not follow our immigration laws you are not an immigrant, you remain what you are: a foreigner. Foreigners are aliens - and if present illegally: illegal aliens.

Immigrants and foreigners are treated differently. Calling illegally aliens “immigrants” is a lie, a lie which results in their being treated incorrectly.

Corruption of language leads to corruption of discourse which leads to wrong actions.

I have often wondered what lump sum of money it would take to have Vietnam take McCain back... permanently.

John McCain forgets:

 

John McCain stands with "good" al Qaeda:

 

Why isn't John McCain rotting in the deepest, dankest hole?

Obama, and many Senators and Representatives also support ongoing arming of alQaeda. Why aren't they rotting in a hole?

 

Do YOU remember?

And our fearless leaders do nothing but appease Mexico.

and of course their extended families will not be eligible to join these unaccompanied minor refugees, correct?

They won’t assimilate whether they are legal or illegal. I see it in my community as it becomes more and more splintered into groups of non-English speakers who have no intention of embracing America. They bring their disordered past and warp it into the fabric of the community.

My family was proud to come here, to be American. The new immigrants want the benefits without responsibility or commitment.

Come yes,but come not because the democrats want another underclass or business needs consumers. Come to become Americans in mind body and soul.

McCain and Graham should both be booted out of the Senate for even suggesting such!

These border crashers are NOT refugees. Their passage from Central America was paid to coyotes, Mexican police/army/politicians, and was aided by the news media in Central America telling them they would be allowed to stay in the US because OBAMA said he wouldn’t deport them.

Thoughts::

1. Arizona and South Carolina: Send the so-called "refugees" permanently to McCain and Gramm home states.

2. Go South: Why don't "refugees" go south to Panama and Costa Rica and other countries farther south? We know why: To get a great education and great medical care in the US.

3.First step: Secure those freight trains coming through Mexico so that the illegals don't have a free ride to the Mexico-US border. This is the most important thing to do. If they had to walk the long distance through Mexico to get to US instead of taking the freight trains, it might slow down the flow of "refugees" from Central America.

D.C. can’t pass amnesty just by-pass the law and fund it anyway.
Can’t wait until election time may take up the habit of voting often like the left does.

Hey, I'm totally hip. We should own both Mexico AND Canada.

Take just a battalion to control the "new" southern border; and NONE for the northern.

You don't need to come to the US, we'll bring the US to YOU !
