Editorial: The international crisis of unaccompanied migrant children at U.S. border
Sacramento Bee ^ | June 8, 2014 | Editorial

Posted on 06/08/2014 9:49:06 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Thousands of children and babies, alone or with their mothers, are swarming into the U.S. along Texas’ Rio Grande Valley. Many of them are coming from Central America, so many the U.S. doesn’t know what to do with them all.

Where are the international aid groups, such as World Vision and Amnesty International? Where is the United Nations? Where are Angelina Jolie and other celebrities who advocate for endangered children worldwide?

Sadly, it’s hard for many of the champions of children to recognize a humanitarian crisis when it happens this close to home.

There’s no way these kids made that trip alone through Mexico..this smells like something orchestrated by the white hut. I’ve already heard several Rats refer to them as refugees, setting up a humanitarian crisis/amnesty.

Oh they recognize it. They just didn't expect to be forced to deal with it or blame their messiah for intentionally doing it to them.

In fy 2013 the Border Patrol had detained approx 2k unaccompanied juveniles. This year the Border Patrol has reached 60k. Interestingly enough juvenile OTMs are one of the most difficult cases to process and deal with.

Obama’s people are claiming they cant send them back because they came all the way from south of Mexico...

at least one of the illegal alien children was a ONE YEAR OLD...

How does a ONE YEAR OLD baby get from Honduras to the US by himself ???

It’s easy to do when it happens 12,000 miles from home. You can make accusations and show what a great humanitarian you are.

500 miles from home, not so much. Here we get to witness your anti-Americanism first hand and that will kill your careers.

I have real trouble with unaccompanied teenagers making the trek. If that's the case, many have relatives and communities at home that should wonder about their well being. Thus whether it's orchestrated by Obama as a clever way to punish the 'pubs and flood our border with invaders or it's genuinely teenagers leaving home alone, there's no reason they should be allowed in the US.

They're teenagers. In a few years they'll be eligible for our military. Wouldn't that create a military with no allegiance to US citizens? It seems that the feds (ie: US taxpayers) will be paying a lot of money to educate, support and provide medical care that will be readily available as a cheap labor source. How many will be or already are involved with cartels in the sex trade or drug trade?

The 'pubs should get on this real fast without waiting for opinion polls, committees and elections. JUST DO IT !!!

I’m just about done with the lie of amnesty for the kids BS.

If we give amnesty to the kids, we’re effectively giving amnesty to the whole family.

Every time I see this “crisis” mentioned, all I want to know is why minors-those under the age of 18-from another country are being housed anywhere, rather than being sent back to their parents-or at least to their country of origin-a simple and proper solution to something that should never have become a “crisis”...

Attractive nuisance doctrine

I wonder if the media will hold Obama accountable ?

In the law of torts, the attractive nuisance doctrine states that a landowner may be held liable for injuries to children trespassing on the land if the injury is caused by a hazardous object or condition on the land that is likely to attract children who are unable to appreciate the risk posed by the object or condition

In this case, in the care of his teenaged mother who is 17. (Had the same question and went looking.) And found the answer to the question as to why the big pickup in minors - Mexico stopped jailing minor illegals - they issue a notice to leave the country and release now. They have 14 days to leave the country or face arrest.

In our country, breaking our laws. Hold them in juvenile detention just until they are 18 just as we would an American child that committed a crime.

yes I saw that in an article in FOXNEWS yesterday...

“teenage mothers” or something like that...

but Obama would have us think these babies just toddled off from home and wandered “across the street”

Obama’s America is the land of no law for illegal aliens.
They can steal, rape, kill, and in some states
practice surgery and law and do the same under
color of what was once law. If caught, even
the felons are released.

They will come by the millions to plunder.

The Arizona Daily Star reported Saturday that Jimena Diaz, consul general of Guatemala in Phoenix, visited the center Friday and said there were about 250 children from Guatemala, with the rest coming from El Salvador and Honduras.

Diaz told the newspaper that the children are being kept in separate groups, divided by age and gender. Most of them are between 15 and 17, Diaz said, with a few much younger than that. Teenage mothers with their children are also being detained separately, he said.

It is the policy of many Latin American countries to encourage their poor, illiterate, criminal, and unhealthy citizens to illegally “migrate” to the US. Our anchor baby program lures Asian and other groups to “birthing vacations” in the US.

There is no question we have created an attractive nuisance. The question is what will be done about it. The answer - nothing. The great experiment in individual liberty is finished.

Sending them back to where they came from originally-bypassing Mexico-is probably cheaper and no one can accuse la migra of abusing minors...

If it is true that they came to Mexico from someplace south of there, then we will be doing Mexico a favor-one we can remind them of when we need to.

since mexco allows these children to cross their whole country from parts south, for every one that comes across OUR border, send ten mexkins home, maybe that will entice them to monitor their own southern border...

well, i can dream, can't i???

“In fy 2013 the Border Patrol had detained approx 2k unaccompanied juveniles. This year the Border Patrol has reached 60k.”

It’s impossible to believe that Obama’s people aren’t involved in this. Classic Cloward/Piven strategy to bring the system down by overwhelming it. The timing is perfect while the amnesty issue is being shoved at Congress, and Obama’s ICE and Border Patrol refuse to enforce our immigration laws. Asymetric warfare and a complicit federal government.

Obama did what he could last week…

a crisis that United States’ flawed immigration policy doesn’t have the power to fix alone, even if Congress miraculously found the will to vote on a reform plan that addresses the issues of today

Well, we see where the media is going to take this one.

ICE and the Border Patrol aren’t refusing to enforce the law. It is De Facto illegal for them to do so. Proper enforcement of immigration law gets you suspended, fired or prosecuted.

MESSAGE TO SEN INHOFE---Sen Inhofe should notify Army officials that these are minor children......Child Protective Services should detain them under laws covering “suspected runaways”.

Sen Inhofe, the US military, and the state, should officially contact the governments involved specifying that they are required to seek out the parents of these Mexican, Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemalan children so that they can be returned to them via their respective juvenile justice systems.

Sen Inhofe might emphasize that the countries involved might not want to be party to child abandonement, as the world looks on.

AS yefragetuwrabrumuy INSIGHTFULLY POSTED By US law, these separated children are legally chattels of their parents; the state cannot release minors until there are responsible adults to care for them.

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

MEMO TO SEN INHOFE: If necessary , Sen Inhofe should expose the corruption in American CPS agencies. One news report that interviewed ex-Child Protective Service agents, exposed that the entire CPS..... aided and abetted by the Virginia legal system...... is designed to separate mothers from their children.

The price is right.

(a) For every child taken from the parents, the Federal government pays CPS approximately $5,000 dollars. (b) If the child is a minority, more money is paid. (c) And if the child has a disability, the feds payout even more in taxpayer’s money to separate children from parents.”

NOTE: The reporter who exposed this corruption kept getting death threats directed at him AND his family for covering this story.

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

Where are the former CIA/FBI agents who are tired of the one giving the American people and the mili/tary the finger?
Where are they to go and investigate how these people are coming en masse via Mexico to our borders?

Knowing this administration, we probably have busses coming from Guatemala via Mexico with a payoff and nod to Mexico to allow it.

Where are the brave investigative agents/reporters who are willing to go to Guatemala and follow this people to see how it’s being coordinated?

It’s sad, people were dumpster diving to get the dirt on Sarah Palin, but no brave souls or whistle-blowers to blow this incursion of illegals into our country.

And this is no “humanitarian crisis”. It is an invasion, plain and simple, planned by the Soros Administration and Mexico in order to bring chaos and to destroy the rule of law in our country.
