U.S. Air Base Provides Comfort and Benefits for 1,000 Illegal Immigrants in Texas
Breitbart's Texas ^ | May 19, 2014 | Kristin Tate

Posted on 05/19/2014 1:49:14 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Since May 18, the Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas has been home to 1,000 illegal immigrant children, according to a report by the San Antonio Express-News. The decision to utilize the base comes as an overwhelming number of young people have been caught crossing the Mexican/U.S. border during recent months.

Children and teens brought to Lackland will be provided with education, foster care programs, and "behavioral treatment centers." The projected cost of such programs, as well as the cost of the housing, has not been disclosed to U.S. taxpayers.

The federal government was forced to utilize Lackland as its own facilities can no longer accommodate the number of illegal immigrants waiting to be processed, reports state.

At the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) sector alone, more than 1,000 illegal immigrants are being apprehended per day.

RGV Border Patrol spokesman Daniel Tirado told Breitbart Texas that his sector is overwhelmed with the number of illegal immigrants that currently need to be processed. "We're catching an average of 1,000 per day and our agents are processing them around the clock. Processing takes between one to two hours per individual--it varies case by case," he said.

Tirado's sector has been so overwhelmed, in fact, that 100 illegal immigrants were recently transported via plane to El Paso for processing....

And there’s a VA hospital up the road.

Wonder if there’s a comparison study done on benefits.

Shame on that cursed Mexican government for dumping their strays on Texas. They are treated much better at our expense than our own poor are treated.

A huge amount of retirees live in the San Antonio area from Lackland, Randolf and Kelly AFBs as well as Fort Sam Houston. San Antonio is also home to the Air Force Village a retiremenmt center exclusively for military retirees.

Beyond that, Lackland AFB is the only place the USAF does basic training. Now consider that uncontrolled infectious diseases (TB, measles and polio) could be introduced by the aliens in those close confines. This is a disaster waiting to happen.

Why would anyone in their right mind join the US military and work for BHO?

They abandon the credulous young on Bengazi rooftops, the loyal old in VA hospitals.

The uniformed tweeners get paid to actively ASSIST in foreign invasions of the country.

You would have to be EXTREMELY cynical to sign up for this.

Veterans die in the VA for lack of money on "secret lists".

60,000 army troops will be cut for lack of money.

Training drastically cut for lack of money.

Benefits drastically cut for lack of money.

But we have enough money for this sh*t:

Children and teens brought to Lackland will be provided with education, foster care programs, and "behavioral treatment centers."

When I was there for basic training 40+ years ago this would not have happened...

back then civilian American citizens without authorization didn’t get to go on base let alone illegal alien foreigners...

THe libs despise the military. Obama and the media hate the military.

The military, and definitely the military hospitals, provide an enormous amount of care to illegals, at the behest of the people of this country, vie the congress, who dictates military missions, and from the people who elect them.

That the military does not get recognition for this is so disgusting I can’t say anything more about it.

this is my problem also. And after posting an article last night about Mexico teachers making between $2-4K a month or more, I have to wonder what the other union employees in Mexico make. Is Mexico dumping their poor on us, so they may have a ‘nicer’ country? If Mexico is paying ‘american’ wages to their union employees, then why isn’t Mexico reimbursing us for these costs?? mexico is not as poor as it projects to be.

Times have changed...now when cartel wars flare up the wounded near the border are taken to military hospitals because civilian hospitals don’t have enough security in the event the shooters decide to finish the job at the hospital. The same military hospitals are having their budgets cut...

You got it all wrong.

We are about to be annexed by Mexico but we do not want to face the reality.

My question is, will all this crap be corrected when the Pubbies take over or will it remain business as usual.

If it is the latter, there will be no need to ever vote again.
