Obama Sets Up Federal Task Force to Provide 'Humanitarian Relief' to Illegal Minors

The number of unaccompanied minors crossing the southwest border has increased more than 90 percent over the last year, and many of the unaccompanied children will be reunited with family members living in the United States, according to administration officials.

Monday, President Obama announced that he has directed Department of Homeland Security Sec. Jeh Johnson to establish a new, interagency “Unified Coordination Group,” set to be led by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate, in response to the flood of illegal immigrant children.

“As the Federal Coordinating Official, the Administrator (or his designee) shall lead and coordinate Federal response efforts to ensure that Federal agency authorities and the resources granted to the departments and agencies under Federal law (including personnel, equipment, supplies, facilities, and managerial, technical, and advisory services) are unified in providing humanitarian relief to the affected children, including housing, care, medical treatment, and transportation,” Obama announced in his Monday memorandum.

According to officials the illegal immigrant children crossing the border alone are much younger and more female than in years past, which has added to the administration’s sense of urgency.

Once detained, unaccompanied minors who are apprehended at the border are then placed into Health and Human Services custody. Officials said Monday that HHS then seeks to reunify these children with their family members.

"It’s impossible to say exactly what will happen to the kids that are in HHS care right now, but in general significant numbers of them do have family members in the United States,” Cecilia Muñoz, White House domestic policy advisor, said on a Monday conference call with reporters....

No such "task force" for the veterans suffering under the VA system. Easy to see what his priorities are, isn't it?

This bastard is using his last term as a bull in a China Shop, destroying everything here.

He needs to be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors.

He needs to be tried for treason for providing aid and comfort to the Taliban in his Bergdahl Caper.

No doubt that, in addition to the illegal minors coming to be reunited with their illegal families, the “humanitarian commission” will recommend that they be reunited and an “Executive Order” will be issued, to allow the families of illegal minors to reunite with their children in the USA. Illegal children united with illegal families and families united with illegal children. What could possibly be wrong with this picture? (sarc)

The solution should be sending them to orphanages in their home countries, since parents sending children abroad with smugglers or even alone are guilty of abuse.

Will they be fed Michelle ma Belle’s school “healthy” lunches? /s

This is getting ridiculous. I read in another article that the parents were helping them get to the border.

Don’t mean to sound harsh or un-Christian, but feed them, give them new shoes if they need it and send them back. If their parents cross, put them in jail, just like the Mexicans do, including with our Marine.

Lets hope and pray that this looser and his collegaue in the Senate, McConnell, at least forfeit their leadership positions.

They are despicable collaborators.
