New York Times: Children on the run
Salt Lake Tribune ^ | June 5, 2014 | Editorial

Posted on 06/05/2014 4:34:57 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Along the southern border, particularly in Texas, a rising influx of young unauthorized migrants crossing the border with their parents — or, more alarmingly, alone — has overwhelmed the Border Patrol and sent the federal government scurrying for a coordinated response.

It is unclear what will happen next to stem the flow or to resolve the uncertain status of the young arrivals, many of whom may have legitimate claims to stay as refugees. But administration officials, custodians of a tenacious deportation policy, deserve credit for recognizing that this is not a border-security crisis but a humanitarian one, fueled by growing violence and instability in the countries feeding the influx: Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

Supporters of comprehensive immigration reform — tightening border security, repairing the immigration flow and placing millions on a path to legal status — should acknowledge that the ambitious legislation they seek won’t erase the problems fueling the crisis abroad. It won’t curb the murder rate in Tegucigalpa or undo the legacy of oppression and instability in Latin America. But critics of reform should not pretend that they own the answers. The view from the Republicans’ America — locked down, in a gated country, hands washed of the migrant problem — is a fantasy about law and order. But it is not a solution

Progressives create the refugee problem along our southern border by offering amnesty and free government assistance ... then blame republicans for the hordes of kids invading when all we want is for current laws to be enforced. Welcome to the fundamental transformation.

fueled by growing violence and instability

No, fueled by Obama's open invitation, specifically to children.

Never mind if some of them suffer and die along the way. Never mind that numerous families are being broken. The Republicans are to blame for all that!

Children are not doing this by themselves. Who is running this operation?

I've seen suburban picket fences that provide more security than the Southern border.

Literally, patches of the border is indistinguishable between the two countries.

Coyotes who are often brutal to these kids.

Central American governments are encouraging this because Obama used his pen and phone to advertise Anchor Baby status for all!

Poor illiterate adults use their kids as their door to America.

There may be others planning on being brutal to these kids:

snip—”This five year old boy, is no longer toilet trained and has been put back into diapers by the foster “dads”.

snip-—”What these former CPS (Child Protective Services) agents tell me is that the entire CPS and Virginia legal system is designed to separate mothers from their children. CPS is motivated by greed and money. For every child taken from the parents, the Federal government pays approximately $5,000 dollars.

If the child is a minority, as is the case with Dylan, more money is paid. And if the child has a disability, the feds payout even more in taxpayer’s money to take children.”

I expect something like the Cuban Mariel boatlift of 1980. Fidel Castro took advantage of Peanuts Carter before Jimmy left office. It turned out that many of the exiles had been released from Cuban jails and mental institutions.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Mexican government deposits a lot of debris on our border before B0 DunhamSoetoroSoebarkah leaves DC.

“administration officials, custodians of a tenacious deportation policy”

“tenacious?”

More like:

1) deport them if you catch or find them
2) do not catch and do not find them

Those are not the problems of the Federal government. These people need to be returned to their home countries immediately.

They should all be relocated to the most liberal zip codes....Marin County, Seattle, Portland, DC and its suburbs, Manhattan, every town where there’s an Ivy League school, etc.

You are very close to the truth......there is collusion, and a conspiracy among conniving Third World govts to organize this massive invasion of our country.

This is part of the armed insurgency---calculated to weaken US ntl security---so that the advancing forces (and those already here) can complete the takeover conniving Third World govt have planned.

Children? Michael Savage recently saw clandestine photos taken at a so-called “youth” holding facility. These aren’t children.....unless you consider a 20-year old Guatamalan sporting gang affiliation and prison tattoos “a child”.

==========================================

OBAMA'S PERMANENT DEMOCRT MAJORITY HAS A SPANISH ACCENT Obama has done everything in his power to suck-up to illegals except fellate a latino on the steps of the Capitol.

We need to make it plain that Dems are in collusion w/ corrupt, greedy Third Worlders. The T/W has designs on the US---- and all that we possess. The calculated plans include manipulating vote-crazed politicians---making backroom deals to exchange US tax dollars for votes.

Calculated T/W connivers figured out that organizing hyphenates into pressure groups and exchanging votes for giveaways is the way the Democrat party operates.

===============================================

Amnesty is a Third World ticket to the endless gravy train---US taxpayers are forced to finance Third World pressure groups---all of them, lined up w/ their hands out for zillions in "foreign aid."

LYING IN WAIT FOR OUR TAX DOLLARS---THESE IMPOVERISHED COUNTRIES CURRENTLY HAVE ORGANIZED PRESSURE GROUPS INSIDE THE US (here illegally): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside)l Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.

How convenient that this suddenly becomes an issue just a few months before Boehner and Obama plan to push amnesty down our throats. And so many LIVs will eat this right up.
