John Cornyn: America Needs To Care For 'Dumped' Children (wants them to be wards of the State)
breitbart ^ | 6/1/14 | c spiering

Posted on 06/10/2014 4:39:16 PM PDT by bestintxas

Sen. John Cornyn criticized President Obama for creating a “human magnet” with his unlawful approach to immigration enforcement, but admitted that Americans had a duty to care for the children that were flooding into the country.

“They need to be taken care of, I mean they’ve been left, basically dumped at America’s doorstep, and we need to treat them compassionately we need to make sure they get the care they need,” Cornyn explained to reporters on Capitol Hill on Tuesday afternoon.

Cornyn pointed out that children as young as four years old had traveled as many as 1,200 miles, suffering horrific conditions on their journey to America.

“If the message is that America’s door is open to anybody and everyone who wants to come here, people are going to flood in,” Cornyn said. “In this case some of the most vulnerable that you can imagine.”

He also shared discussions he had with border patrol agents who were worried about 200 sex offenders mixing in with the population of 49,000 detained immigrants since last year.

Cornyn did not say whether or not the children should be deported.

“I think we need to make sure they’re OK now,” said Cornyn adding that they should be probably be “reunited with family members.”

Cornyn is revealing his true liberal tendencies: the govt must be involved in the entire world.

Hey John: we cannot be taking in the world's children.

Ever since the refugee boats in Cuba being turned back by Coast Guard, we need to do it.

dump them back across the border. They are Mexico's problem, not ours.

I agree with him...we need to house them, feed them, find their parents, and them send them home. EVERY ONE.

“dump them back across the border.”

I can just see you, upon finding a four year old on the street, dumping him in Mexico.

We are NOT the worlds babysitter, nanny or guardian ad litem. Obama’s administration’s act is not only patently illegal it amounts to a treasonous act against this country with the intent of purposeful harm for political advantage..

Of course, this policy only ensures that many more millions of the world's kids will be dropped on our doorstep. I say, feed them, house them for a week, then force march to the border. I am guessing that they won't come back...

Americans have no duty to care for other countries children. They can go back home and be cared for by people in their own countries.

If we provide for these kids in the name of charity instead of returning them to Mexico it will only encourage greater migration with the end result being so many dependant people that we cannot provide for them. The humanitarian cost of the safety net failing so many would dwarf the humanitarian cost of, as you say, dumping the current crop back across the border.

As a side note, the sad fate described above is where our welfare system is heading anyway, the Mexicans are just speeding up the process.

A very simple solution. They came over the US - Mexico Border. Thus, they were in Mexico last. Go to the border, make a large corral on the US side of the border, a salient so to speak in the border fence. Open the border fence inside the salient, so that from the salient one can cross freely to Mexico. Put the aliens in the salient. DONE SQUIRREL.

These children are not refugees. Now the german parents homeschooling their children were persecuted. These children were genuine refugees.

Nope, a Federal judge will require that the US pay to send the kids parents to take care of them. Watch and see.

The thing that pisses me off is that there is NO 4 year old sneaking into this country.
Someone is bringing them in! Think about it for a minute.

I’ll wager money V.J. and Nero are behind it. Using kids to push their agenda.

And our politicos are encouraging it. When oh when do we declare them the enemy? When oh when do the folks who think they are defending this country domestically realize they are systematically being replaced by one generation leap of illegals who WILL take their asses out once they have tried taking ours out? Get a clue current JBT’s, your days are numbered too; you’re selling the whole kit and caboodle down the rio grande.

"children as young as four years old had traveled as many as 1,200 miles,"

Nothing like using extreme hyperbole to make the case.

Are you fricken kidding me? Do you honestly think a four year old navigated the desert terrain to get here? No, they were brought here by adults. Send all the MFers back, then imprison the ones responsible for orchestrating this onslaught.

Two comments:
1) Brit Hume said last night that several of the kids came to western VA to shelter. He was impressed with the manners and the respect the children had.
2) If the kids can live with American families, they will be more integrated to our culture AND our Constitution.
