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 theyve been left, basically dumped at Americas 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 Americas 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 theyre OK now, said Cornyn adding that they should be probably be reunited with family members.

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.
Well that settles it. Lets all rally behind the RINO.
He can win/Dem is worse/Lesser evil/blahnlahblah...
Hey...why does America have a problem? I just dont understand!
He was a cool judge, he is an idiot Senator.
I got a big barbwire fence with 18 trained nightwatch raccoons plus coyotes that roam around too,on my farm- keeps them durn kids out pretty darn good.
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.
How about making sure they get back home?
Americans had a duty to care for the children that were flooding into the country.
No we don’t, their home countries have that duty!
Cornyn is just showing his Republican colors.
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..
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.
Yes Compassion but I don’t think America should commit suicide in the process. For God’s sake send them back!!!
Not long ago they schooled us on sending back Elian...
Our government prefers to side with terrorists than German home schooled kids.
Not to worry, just feed them Michelle’s school lunch program and they will be gone.
Nope, a Federal judge will require that the US pay to send the kids parents to take care of them. Watch and see.
Cornyn wouldn't be trying to fool us, would he?
