Mexico: Influx of Unaccompanied Children is Everyone’s Responsibility
Border News Network ^ | June 4, 2014 | By George Rebing

Posted on 06/06/2014 3:06:18 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

... Over the past month, a flood of unaccompanied alien children (UACs) has overwhelmed US Border Patrol personnel and facilities, particularly in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Most come from Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala.

In the United States, Thad Bingel, an expert in border management with the Command Consulting Group in Washington, DC and former chief of staff at CBP, speculated that a perception has taken hold that a combination of a change in US policy and leniency toward UACs and the inability of US authorities to deport other than Mexican migrants has led to a rush to the US border.

“The word gets out that ‘my younger cousin got through’ and it spreads that the US is not detaining minors and so it takes on a sense of urgency because the capability and capacity of the US to hold people is low,” Bingel told BNN. “We’ve seen this in Texas, and not just Central Americans but Caribbeans and South Asians. All kinds of immigrants were coming through there.”

Apparently, Central Americans “know that we treat minors differently than if they were with an adult and that means that they have a better chance of staying in the United States. They decide that the best thing they can do is send the children through with all the dangers of that trip because that is still better than the conditions in Honduras or Guatemala. They have a better chance doing that than staying and getting into a gang.”

Those perceptions, combined with the growing season when there are agricultural jobs in the United States and a perceived weakness in US immigration policy and enforcement, is providing an overwhelming attraction, he said.

The purpose of the federal government is to protect the states. Place the military on the border. At the very least border states should call forth the state militia and place them on the border.

They imprison one U.S. Marine for making a wrong turn and then they attack us on our treatment of illegal aliens?

I thought the argument of the lefties with illegal aliens under 18 is "their parents BROUGHT them here illegally and we can't punish them for something that is NO fault of their own!" (therefore we should give them discounted college tuition or something). Yet now libs are claiming there are tons of illegal alien minors who came here on their OWN, without parents, so their lives are in danger. Which is it?

They also can't decide whether the adult illegal aliens are "otherwise law-abiding" or if we need to give them all drivers licenses because they're "driving to work without insurance".

Seriously, make up your minds, libs!

The Democrats and Obama are criminals for manufacturing this humanitarian crisis. There is not a hint of compassion in what they have done. They put the lives of children at risk so they can consolidate political power. Our jails are full of people who have done far less than Obama and the Democrats. I am not a hater, but it is not hard to hate people capable of such evil.

“Mexico: Influx of Unaccompanied Children is Everyone’s Responsibility”

“We all have AIDs”?

Nonsense.
Bus them to the border and walk them single-file back to Mexico. If Mexico find we’re returning them they will stop them at their border.
But with the Marxist Boy King, don’t expect any positive leadership on this problem.

child abandonment is a crime, right?

Make it known that charges will be filed against all of their parents.

Start putting out pamphlets in Spanish announcing that these abandoned children will be adopted by homosexual couples.

There HAS to be collusion, and a conspiracy among 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.

Well of course they do. Do as I say don’t do as I do is the motto of the current Mexican state. I have heard that on their southern border they shoot first and ask questions later.
Probably not a bad policy, maybe we should try it. Bet you the illegals would slow to a trickle.
Never happen as long as the lefties and big business are in control.
Never change till the kids of the lefties are making 2 bucks an hour with their liberal arts degrees. Then listen to the howling.

Since they all appear to be coming here, I am thinking about moving there. Should be some great deals on land currently.

Could be, but they have not toting the banner as openly as Obama and the Rats. If they are in on it, they should hang, too. Evil is evil, I don't care what your party affiliation happens to be.

I hear “someone” is dispersing the little angels to other states once over the border. (Hey, kids! Don’t go to Virginia.)

“Virginia Congressman Admits to the Existence of Child Trafficking in Fairfax County Virginia”

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/06/06/virginia-congressman-admits-to-the-existence-of-child-trafficking-in-fairfax-county-virginia/

Hodges has interesting reading concerning the theft of children from people who differ from the agenda of Barry, ValJar and the powers-that-be—
Monica Wesolowski, Nancy Schaefer (now deceased-investigated child trafficking)and Stacey Lynne.

Hmmmm...makes me wonder about Justice John Roberts.

I am not a hater either but I am a major league despiser. I have to say that I despise this bunch even more the Clinton gang. I didn’t think that was possible.

‘Start putting out pamphlets in Spanish announcing that these abandoned children will be adopted by homosexual couples.’

Also put on the sign that they will be raised in the Church of Sodomy. I doubt the Catholics will go for that.
When the local farmers needed workers, they went to Mexico and put up signs saying work was available here and we got a boatload of em. Could work. Anybody going to Mexico in the near future?

Kudos for your post!

Virginia Moms Have Lost Their Constitutional Rights

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

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/06/05/virginia-moms-have-lost-their-constitutional-rights/

(a commenter at the site said (paraphrased—”no longer being potty-trained suggests molestation has occurred”—and, the child taken wanted his “hands chopped off”.)

They've learned to game the system. And, with the help of liberals like La Raza Rick Perry, they are taking all Americans are stupid enough to give them. At our expense, of course.

Thanks for the ping. :-)

I hadn’t heard that people are sending children here alone.

Mexico is letting Central American children travel through Mexcio to get here?

And our country puts up with it, INCLUDING many Republicans.
