Top Dem: U.S. 'Cannot Be Expected to Give Sanctuary to Every Single Child in the World'
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | July 8, 2014 | Caroline May

The unaccompanied children from Central American crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally should be deported except in extreme circumstances, according to House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer.

“We have an immediate humanitarian crisis that confronts this country, we also have a crisis in terms of this country cannot continue to absorb, nor should it, a limitless number of people who — particularly children who want to cross our border,” Hoyer told reporters Tuesday.

According to the Democratic whip the influx is unsustainable in the U.S.

“We cannot give these children sanctuary except in extraordinary circumstances. Obviously we have refugee status and protective status for people, but the whole sale coming over the border of teens to less is not sustainable in the United States,” Hoyer said....

Oof! He must have realized this isn’t playing well for the dems. Prove it, Hoyer—demand Obama stop this chit!

It’s starting to wake americans up, so dems will try and LOOK like they care about the problem, while the media covers for them, as they do nothing or make it worse.

Maybe the administration knew it would fail, but they would get a whole bunch more illegals into the woodwork before it did.

Don’t know why this is filed under “GOP Club.” It surely has to do with everyone. It’s not an internal GOP matter.

What next? Nancy Pelosi saying ‘she has evolved’ on this issue and now understands the compassionate thing to do is to send this wave of insect-infested invaders back where they came from asap. I will bet this is Valery’s doing.

Either Hoyer had an epiphany, or this is round one of good cop bad cop.

Epiphany, don’t think so. Most all up there are only in it for what they get out of it. Power or money—nothing of a care for this country or her people. We are all just pawns for them to play in their grand game.

Every illegal caught, or picked up (already here) should be given 2 choices. 1) Go home immediately. 2) Submit to an implant that allows them to be tracked. The implant could be detected by potential employers, police, and government offices. This will allow them to be turned down for employment as well as government services, making choice 1 the only option.

In this rush to make whites a hated minority in the country they supposedly founded there will be one true loser group and that is blacks. Now if they as a group were to largely assimilate to what might be termed American normality then no loss for them, they can become just ideologically orientated, but they are not. Beyond some media hype and sports blacks are being lost in the shuffle and in Chicago’s case being shipped out of town or shot dead by some other loser. In short, they be screwed.

Since illegal aliens each expand their carbon footprint by an order of magnitude just by coming here, they alone are the greatest contributer to global warming

Might I inform you and all others reading that black folks KNOW they are being screwed over here, and are just as pissed as everyone else. But as always, don’t expect to see this reported on page 1 of the NYT.

The DEMS know what I know: the pols SUCK for them on this issue - slowing reaching ‘Rage Against the Machine’ levels. Their homeboy at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is radioactive right now. You won’t hear his named mentioned while dems are running for office. And if it’s brought up by someone else, they will change the subject.

Back to my darker brethren...

I have often asked (read: begged) my fellow freepers to not believe what you hear about near universal support among blacks for this criminal in the white house. For the most part, black folks are a) pro gun, b) anti-sodomy and c) favor policies that (get this) produce jobs. The idiot has not been going in that direction, and despite what anyone says, he looks less black every time he hits the golf links.

Haven’t you seen all those black pastors, and even the nation-of-islam folks following the dear leader in lock step these days?

Answer: no. If fact it’s just the opposite. But too many of you out there, while hating the state-sponsored media, eat up every word they say when it comes to black folks.

If black folks have to struggle to get even low-end jobs, how are they going to fare when you import an entire sub-culture of lower-skilled workers (who btw, probably won’t assimilate with anyone else)?

Sorry, just ranting. Now if you will excuse me, I need to get to work so I can pay taxes to support all this crap.

Hmmm...I guess Hoyer’s Maryland-DC area district must have finally filled up with illegal aliens and can’t handle any more.

The feds screwed up (from their perspective) by trying to quietly disperse and release the illegals into small towns and cities across the country, which suddenly transformed it from a national issue to a local one, with individual Congress critters getting earfuls from their constituents.

/src on/Hoyer = Racist. Seems the rhetoric from some leadership of The Catholic Church every child needs to be treated with dignity therefore we need to bring them into the US and provide for them./src off/

That is the first sensible and correct thing he has ever said in his decades on Capitol Hill.

Was he struck by lightening or did he slip, fall and hit his head?

Define “extraordinary circumstances.” I’m always skeptical when pols use vague terms like this. Too much wiggle room.

Steny Hoyer is one of the worst scumbag leftists in Congress.

Is he lying, or has Bam-Bam truly jumped the shark?

I’d say epiphany. Based on him getting advance word that a bunch of them are being shipped to Aberdeen or something ...

Would LOVE to see Pelosi’s reaction if a bunch were scheduled to be dumped in the San Fran area. Plenty of space for a tent city on Treasure Island or the old Alameda Navy base ...

Yes basically even “conservatives” are told what to do by the media, waiting for orders so to say. The gun rights thing, yes in Chicago there is a state rep, what I would say a new generation of black politician a post Obama type, still a D but voted for concealed carry because his voters demanded it of him. And BTW the top Ds in Illinois are all white, you never hear that mentioned by those secular sainted diversity loving white libs in the media do we?
