Children swarming southern border prove a test to Obama’s immigration policy: 60,00 minors.
Washington Times ^ | 05/29/2014 | By Stephen Dinan

Children traveling without their families, including an “overwhelming” number younger than 12, are flooding across the southwestern border in the latest test of the Obama administration’s immigration policy.

Homeland Security Officials predict that 60,000 minors will cross the border this year and that the number will double next year, accounting for an astonishing percentage of people trying to jump the border — braving the tremendous perils of crossing Mexico and trying to evade border authorities, hoping to eventually connect with family in the U.S.

The administration seems powerless to stop most of the border breaches and instead has searched for ways to manage the flow of vulnerable, and politically sympathetic, immigrants.

This is why Democrats aren’t worried.

The entire Central and South American continents are sources of future Democrat voters.

Just open the border and let ‘em in.

Their parents or others are bringing them to the border and telling them to cross. They want to crash the system the rest of the way and they know this administration is on their side.

Oh, BS. There are hundreds of ways to stop them from coming in but the Dems see them as future voters who will keep them in office. One of my favorite suggestions came from a friend who was a Marine sniper. He says: Forget the fence. Just put up a tower every two miles with a sniper in each tower with orders to shoot-to-wound. Collect up the wounded at the end of the day, tattoo a big X on their forehead and if they try to cross a second time, the orders change. Who knows...it might work.

Flat out blatant Treason.

“levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere”

18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

Over 1000 will be warehoused in San Antonio. Some are only three years old. Most will not have their vaccinations, so what happens when a virus gets started in those close quarters?

Mexican parents should be ashamed to have their children treated like stray dogs just to get on Obama’s gravy train. Where are the Hispanic politician who thought this Dreamer scam was a good thing.

Dreaming Nightmare

. . . the numbers have been rising steadily for several years, and that the administration should have been better prepared. “This is a crisis on the level of the Mariel crisis. This far outstrips the agency’s capacity to deal with it in the normal way” . . . they don’t seem to be taking any steps to prevent it from happening.”

The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats (the Clintons) and their ideological issue (Obama) don't care who suffers.. what matters is how does it help them.

Election November 1992 the Clintons made much ado about "putting people first" and welcoming Haitians to the U.S. no matter how they got here.

Bush's racist policy of intercepting and repatriating Haitian immigrants was mean.

Just like today the Democrats created a mass of ILLEGAL aliens -- in this case it was of people trying to get here on almost anything that would float. Many died.

On the eve of his inauguration (January 1993), Clinton reversed himself and adopted Bush's position. The Haitians stopped the deadly effort to get here. The Clintons could have saved many lives if . . . .
