Ariz. rushes supplies to site holding migrant kids
Washington Post ^ | June 7, 2014

Posted on 06/07/2014 6:53:33 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Angry about the federal government sending from Texas to Arizona immigrants who are in the country illegally, Arizona officials say they are rushing federal supplies to a makeshift holding center in the southern part of the state that’s housing hundreds of migrant children and is running low on the basics.

Conditions at the holding center are so dire that federal officials have asked the state to immediately ship the medical supplies to the center in Nogales.

The Nogales holding center opened for children because the Department of Health and Human Services had nowhere to turn. “They became so overwhelmed and haven’t kept up with planning,” the official said.

Why can’t the state of AZ bus them to NY City, or DC and drop them off? Sounds like a plan to me.

Makes me wonder if there isn’t something much bigger afoot here!

Assuming the so-called detention center is overwhelmed and apparently more dumping by the Feds is ongoing, then doesn’t the overwhelmed detention center made to look ever more like a refugee camp?

And then, if it is recognized as a Refugee camp, and catches the scrutiny of the UN as a Refugee camp, then how long before we find the UN types coming into the US to observe, perhaps administer the day to day operation of the “Refugee” Camp?

It appears many of these children are being let in rather than being smuggled across the desert. Why are they not being turned away at the border? Once they’re in this country it’s kinda hard to keep them from becoming our problem.

And what a way for the Feds to deal with their arch enemies in AZ. To intentionally dump people, create a crises that of course, creates the need for UN Intervention! I see Blue helmets and charges of crimes against humanity.

My my, these ‘shadows’ have a lot of bright flourescent light shining....and these ‘shadows’ are funded and staffed by state and federal governments!

Where is the budget oversight? Either the cost of these mass transports were planned for ie known in advance or they are being done by the seat of the pants in which case funding must be requested and approved in the present day.

And if we can afford to fly and bus them between states, we can certainly afford to repatriate them.

This is nothing more than a finger in the eye of those who oppose illegal immigration, mainly us white folk, the Governor of Arizona, Sheriff Arpaio, you know the racists that wont kowtow to Emperor Barry’s agenda.

Just another in the Cloward-Piven strategies to disassemble the United States’ power, influence, and treasure.

After reading all of the comments made in the original article and here on FR what strikes me as odd is why no one sees this situation as a deliberate act of bellicosity by the State of Mexico against the United States. No one has urged getting tough with the Mexican government or seeing this for what it is, namely a hostile economic and cultural invasion of the southern U.S. border and sovereignty by a country which is essentially an enemy of the U.S. In any other part of the world a government which allowed and encouraged its underclasses to break the border of another country and illegally obtain benefits from the defacto host country to the extent Mexico has done over the past thirty years would be faced with the real threat of military reprisals. We even have Mexican cartels controlling vast swatches of U.S. territory. Yet no one has placed blame for this where it truly belongs, at the feet of a hostile enabling government in Mexico. It’s like Congress is ignoring the two thousand pound elephant in the room. We have involved our military for years and years in imbecilic civil wars in dozens of countries which pose no threat to our existence and provide no benefit to us after we stupidly commit to them, at the expense of billions of dollars and thousands of U.S. soldier’s lives. Yet—yet— we cannot bring ourselves to defend our own overrun borders. Our elected federal officials took an oath to defend the borders and the Constitution. They are all in violation of that oath.

This almost looks like the Obama admin is deliberately letting the country be flooded with immigrants, mostly children, so as to make any effort to send them back sound inhumane. Is the federal government conspiring to flood the country with illegals and dump them in specific states to cause specific problems or gain specific advantages for Democrats?

And i do mean that. The callous and sneering act had no justification other than spite for jan Brewer.

I am gonna start asking my illegal friends about this and what is going on. I think it crazy and unlikely that any parent would send their minor children across the desert without adult supervision. The illegals I know are with at least one parent. And they keep all of their children together. Unaccompanied children reeks of trafficking or some other evil.

My local McDonalds - 90% Hispanic employees. My local Jack-in-the-Box - 90% Hispanic employees. My local KFC - 90% Hispanic employees. My local car wash - 100% Hispanic employees. The day-labor crowd hanging out at Home Depot - 100% Hispanic. And I am 1,200 miles from the Mexican border. No wonder low-end wages have been depressed and people are clamoring for a $15 minimum wage - the labor market has been flooded with illegals.

Because a lot of people, both in government and business, are perpetrating this deliberately. Also throw in the “what are the feds going to do about it”, the “we should write a law”, the “take them to court”, and the “this is not the states’ responibility to resolve” types, and we are where we are at now. The feds in collusion with the mexican government are actively engaging in this violation of US sovereignty, actively refusing to enforce the law, and actively smacking down any state that takes the matter into their own hands.

The only way out is for the border states to lock down their borders, cut off all access to or from mexico, kick all of the feds out of their states, and state clearly the federal government has refused to do its job as required by the constitution, and their services are no longer needed. But we know that will never happen, because the state governments are too beholden to the powers to be in washington.

Everything is proceeding according to plan. Those who call the R.I.C. ‘incompetent’ fail to see his INTENT IS the chaos and destruction that is happening. He is far TOO competent. He is the enemy of all this country was and should be. The Constitution is an impediment-so he erases it bit by bit, making it a hollow, meaningless document.The border is the same- erase it as an impediment by ignoring it. Invite the entirety of another country in-thereby making North America ONE country. Then all the ‘disadvantaged’ and ignorant will fight to keep it that way. An unannounced dictator is what we have- a dictators actions are being ramped up every day, bit by bit, and this country sits-like frogs in a pot of warm water- boiling slowly.

We gave up sovereignty of the southern US border with the La Paz agreement, and the border has been administered by a joint commission in Mexico City for about twenty years:

Newsmax article Friday June 6, by Todd Beamon, states that DHS plans to house illegal MINORS at Fort Sill Army Base (Oklahoma) as early as Tuesday. As many as 600 at an estimated cost of $252 per child per day. About 1000 are sheltered at a time in a portion of Lackland AFB. Built in 1941, Lackland houses recruits for basic training.Pure coincidence I suppose.

Another center is expected to open soon at Naval Base Ventura County in Southern CA It will hold a maximum of 600 children

Details in this article make it worth reading. Chilling

DHS Can't release unescorted juveniles. They can only be released to an immediate relative or guardian.

Most all of the illegal aliens over 18 have already been released but DHS can't just let the kids walk.

They are creating a "crisis" and you can bet they won't let it go to waist.

America's national clown getting even with AZ for:

1) passing SB 1070 which allowed the state to enforce FEDERAL immigration laws which Big Sis and Eric Holder refused to do, and

2) AZ Gov Jan Brewer daring to wag her finger in Clown's face on the airport tarmac.
