Skip to comments.Are Border Children a Refugee Crisis for the U.S.?
Posted on 06/05/2014 4:13:57 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Americans are accustomed to seeing reports of refugees swamping the borders of countries abroad - Syrians fleeing to Turkey, Sudanese streaming to South Sudan. But they arent accustomed to seeing such flights of humanity on their doorstep.
The escalating numbers of young children arriving alone at the U.S. border with Mexico, many of them younger than 13, prompted the president to declare a humanitarian crisis on Monday.
Refugee carries a specific definition in immigration law as someone who has a founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Many of the kids would fit in the latter category, Young said.
Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said the surge of children is an administration-made disaster and called for enforcement at the border and in the interior U.S.
Goodlatte said the administration is rubber stamping credible fear claims at the border. He has also said the administration's deferred deportations for DREAMers has encouraged an increase in border crossings.
Word has gotten out around the world about President Obamas lax immigration enforcement policies and it has encouraged more individuals to come to the United States illegally, many of whom are children, Goodlatte said in a statement. He said he would hold a hearing on the issue.

send them home or announce the parents will never get them back and see if the influx stops.
introduce piranha to the Rio Grande and Falcon lake
Enticing illegal immigration is a component of plan to destabilize the United States.
Yup. The only reason they’re sending children is for PR purposes with an eye on demanding benefits for the parents later on.
Obama wants to introduce as many non-white, non-European people into this county as possible. He wants to influence the demographics of this country for centuries to come. It will be his enduring legacy.
It is not a refugee crisis. They are illegal aliens and should be immediately deported. I used to care about children, but mine are grown up now.
The MX “border childred” are a staged scam, perpetrated by the bleeding hearts.
“he would hold a hearing on the issue.”
Then a Task Force.
Then a Blue-Ribbon Panel.
Then a non-partisan Commission.
Then an Investigation.
Then a Select United Nations racist crimes against Immigrant Children Trial.
...... How cute ...... all those little “Dreamers” are about to become our financial and social nightmares.
Well, Mr. republican neutered man, please keep talking about how King Obama won’t enforce the law blah blah blah. If King Obama doesn’t enforce the law and nothing is done about it, then obviously no one else cares about the law either. Maybe they can hold a hearing and talk about it to each other as members of Congress are propped up by their mistresses sitting behind them. Or maybe none of them have mistresses anymore. Maybe boy toys?
Perpetrated by amoral America-hating Uniparty subversives.
No. It is an invasion issue. And a parasite issue. These are like the offspring of the Cowbird, displaying the rightful children in the nest.
Need to give them box lunches, a few bottles of water, and send ‘em right back across the border on boxcars.
FAMILY VALUES so incredibly strong that they PRE-POSITION the anchor, lonely and without ANY parents..!
Piraña and land-mines.
Paid for by Boner and Cantor to pass amnesty.
It would be a great way to get the UN and others involved and critiquing our government, wouldn’t it?
Who is trafficking these children?
What is the Mexican Government’s role in all this??
... “Who is trafficking these children?” ....
The US Chamber of Commerce.
Mexico probably provided transportation from their southern border to their northern border.
.... What is the Mexican Governments role in all this?? ...
They endorse Amnesty. It frees up their schools, hospitals, and jails.
For real? The U.S. Chamber of Commerce? Why
The enemies we fought for a hundred years are running our government and ruling over us. This is why insane policies like this are encouraged. The sycophant media and Hollywood keep the majority of Americans in the dark and provide aid and comfort to the tyrants who tear our beautiful country apart day by day. When the revolution happens, the first people that need to go against the wall with a blindfold need to be “journalists”.
Noppers...no refugees involved...
just illegal alien parents from Mexico pushing their illegal alien kids across the border..
and Mexican illegal alien teenage juvenile delinquents busting into our country like they bust into a liquor store ..
just repeal all of the dream act nonsense and the number of kids will go down.
We are paying for this? Our tax dollars are being used for human trafficking of innocent children?
Of course. Obama just axed for more money to fund his future dreamer voters. This is being encouraged. You already guessed that.
Its not a refugee problem. And its not our problem. Its Mexico’s problem. Hand them back. Let the Mexicans figure it out.
Everyday the POtuS sticks his middle finger in America's face and the Republican Party blusters.
Do they not understand that the Republic teeters on the brink of the abyss?
Everyday, Obama reminds me of Hitler. Hitler was a drug-addled madman. Obama acts like a drug-addled madman.
“The MX border childred are a staged scam, perpetrated by the bleeding hearts.”
It is no accident that our media has been morphing the “illegal aliens” into “victims of human trafficking”, either; they tried to get a lot of mileage out of that during the Super Bowl (because northern NJ is filled with illegal aliens).
I don’t think the dwindling number of Anglo-Americans are buying it; the only people who support amnesty are those that haven;t had illegals transform their neighborhoods into Tijuana North.
Not out of the question at all.
