JOHN CORNYN: AMERICA NEEDS TO CARE FOR 'DUMPED' CHILDREN
Breitbart ^ | 10 Jun 2014 | CHARLIE SPIERING

Posted on 06/11/2014 4:40:46 AM PDT by Nickname

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.

As usual, no leadership from Cornyn. Just more standing around with his hands in his pockets, complaining about Obama and wondering what he's going to do.

Sure - let's care for them.
Let's give them a P&J sammich and a carton of milk as they load into the bus to take them to the border.

Hey John. Ever thought of asking Mexico’s Nieto why they are dumping their children?

There is a solution.

The EXEMPT in Congress shall give up their homes
and finances for this quagmire THEY created.

The EXEMPT shall take in a quarter in their homes
these “children” they have INVITED, themselves.

JOHN CORNYN: AMERICA NEEDS TO CARE FOR ‘DUMPED’ CHILDREN,


WTF?

In the marginally sane world I inhabit, when you find a twelve year old child who has gone missing from his parents, you return that child to his parents.

What is so hard about that?

Only in Washington it seems that the solution is to build a ware house to keep the kids until such time as you can relocate the parents from Guatemala to the USA, buy them a house and get them started on welfare payments.

This is why they’ll never be deported. Nobody holding public office is willing to have a “that racist deported CHILDREN” narrative hung around their neck.

They’re not “dumped”. They’re sappers - moles and infiltrators. Half to push our resources to the limit, and the other half as new recruits for MS-13 and/or Reconquista.

These children have not just been “dumped”. Pretty soon we will be hearing sobs from the left to bring the parents in to reunite with their children and give them every benefit that is denied to US citizens and vets.

Sadly, Cornyn survived his primary election. Texans did oust a few RINOs locally tho, so hopefully there will be more solid conservatives up and coming to challenge him in the future.

Put them on school busses and ship them back.

My mother was not allowed to immigrate with her parents when a US immigration official thought she was “sick”. She had been crying about leaving her home. She had to go back and live with her grandparents while her parents went ahead to the US. She had to wait 8 years before she could see her parents again.

My dad’s family had to wait 15 years for the quota after their dad applied for immigration from Mussolini’s Italy. In the meantime, his father died, his sister died, and his mother died waiting for immigration approval.

My mom an ddad worked hard all their lives and put us through college without ANY government assistance.

Cry me a river.

This is a question that needs to be asked: Just how did so many children end up crossing the border unaccompanied?

Did they find their way there themselves? that's unlikely, isn't it?

If they had help, where did it come from? And why?

And, of course, did the Obama administration somehow orchestrate the affair???

“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.”
_______________________________________________________
Oh, so a four year old did this on his own? Of course not.
He is using that as an example in order to cover for the adults that brought the child.

I thought most of them were from Central American countries who just traveled through Mexico. I wonder how they had the money for the trip if things are so bad? How did they get to Mexico and then on to the U.S.? Is Obama purposely bringing them here? Why?

How about we round them up and train them to be Porters at the VA.
These kids can learn skills like sweeping/mopping the floor, emptying bed pans, taking out the trash, etc.

Sheriff Joe should cut an instructional DVD on how to set up tents, make PB sandwiches, and get these kids to salute the
Flag each morning

Americans have a duty to care for the children that are flooding into the country huh? UM NO they don’t! At least, not the ones who’ve been hollering for years to stop the illegal crossing nonsense to begin with! This American had nothing to do with those kids/teens coming here. THIS American was mindful to only produce the amount of children she could afford to care for. This American has elderly parents she needs to worry about, not some Latin/Hispanic’s offspring in some other country who somehow saw fit to let their own kids illegally cross over into my country in some misguided attempt to get... what? freebies of some sort?

The border situation in Texas has become a total face.

A tragic face in truth, but a farce none the less.

The realization of the farce our politicians have created on borders has just caused Virginia Republicans to rock the casbah of the House Majority Leader , Eric Cantor.

Perhaps the voters will wake up to the grim reality and rock the casbahs of a lot of scum bag politicians come this fall.

For some reason, this video seems strangely appropriate.

With the relative high numbers of both Middle Eastern/Northern Africa immigrants (Moslem) & the number of South/Central American immigrants (Catholic) - the US govt is setting up a class warfare situation that can, at a later date, be used to seize civil freedoms. The Democrats are prepping the social battlefield.

Check this out on the other end of the world:

Al Qaeda Militants Capture US Black Hawk Helicopters In Iraq

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-06-10/al-qaeda-militants-capture-us-blackhawk-helicopters-iraq

It is apparent that the Sunni’s – using US logistical supplies and support meant to topple Assad in Syria – are now reclaiming those cities that give an advantage towards the re-conquering of Iraq by seizing strategic points of interests.

Make no mistake; the Sunnis are on the move. The idea of a Shi’ite power in a major nation is a stain upon their reputation. They (Salafist/Wahhabism/Sunnis) will say and do anything to gain the necessary supplies to further their ultimate goal – a new caliphate. In the mean time, the Iranian Persians are attempting to build deterrence from what they have determined as a forceful migration of Sunni Wahhabism encroaching faster towards this end, where they will be the final player to fall in this expansion. There are those that believe Iran’s goal of nuclear weapons is to destroy Israel. It’s not! The primary purpose is to safe guard Iran from Sunnis. Saudi Arabia knows this, but keeps that information held tight.

Everything points to this. The US, at this time, is aiding to further future violence against US interests aboard, while weakening the resolve of deterrence that this super power once held.

There will be another Middle Eastern war – so, prepare for oil shortages. The Middle East will drive this. Forgot about Russian and China sharing their resource with us, they have their own oil deal. They just signed a deal 2 weeks ago to ensure they are well supplied with oil trades. The US is being prepped by both sides to strain it into compliance and ultimately weakness. Our political leaders should know this and the fact they are doing nothing to counter these preemptive actions is questionable at best.

This is going to be very bad!

Very overt - but one needs to pay attention and link all these events together and ask “why are they occurring in the first place?”

Do we know who the parents are, or are these kids really being orphaned?

Obama is creating a disaster, but these are human beings. I think we do need to find a way to assist them.....maybe pressure Mexico to open their doors.....give churches incentive to embrace them.

The Obama Administration and illegal alien advocacy groups with close ties to South and Central America are spreading the word that if you send your children to the US border , they will be let in, given amnesty and will soon be able to bring the whole family over to the US to get welfare.

And that is exactly what the plan is - to manufacture a crisis to crate fake anchor babies that can import their extended families into the US once Congress has passed amnesty giving the kids have standing to bring them into the country.

They are working with new papers to publicize this and its’ working. Huge number of families are sending their young children to the border and creating an Obama manufactured humanitarian crisis to force America to pass amnesty to deal with the disaster

This is clearly a scam on the part of Mexican parents ready to sacrifice their children to gain backdoor citizenship.

And, of course, the Democrats are loving it; every one of these families will vote Democrat with hands out for more perks and cash.

We should dump them back on Mexico.

But there is something bigger here that no one is talking about:

We have long heard that Mexico has very strict immigration laws regarding the countries south of Mexico.

If that is true, then how and why does Mexico allow these people to enter Mexico for the purpose of sneaking into the US?

Either Mexico is allowing this as a form of economic war against the US, meaning they are not our friends, or Mexico is doing it with the encouragement of obumbler.

If obumbler were the kind of man we need as president, he would serve notice on Mexico that they will end their complicity or the US will end all banking, exports and imports, all commerce and diplomatic relations, etc., until such time as Mexico puts an end to it.
