Posted on 06/12/2014 6:51:45 AM PDT by SoConPubbie
Earlier today on Capitol Hill, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a Homeland Security oversight hearing and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson testified.
Johnson was pressed by lawmakers, specifically Republicans, about the ongoing humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied children on the southwest border with Mexico. Since President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] program was implemented in 2012, we've seen an alarming increase in the number of children trafficked into the United States without their parents.
During the hearing, Texas Senator Ted Cruz reminded Johnson about exactly what we're dealing with here: children.
Its important to understand what those numbers represent. These numbers represent children. Little boys and little girls, their parents are handing them over not to some noble social worker trying to help them. They are handing them over to international, global criminal cartels that smuggle human beings in. They put kids, among other places, on top of fast-moving freight trains. They are criminals who assault, sexually assault, and sometimes murder these children. These are little girls that are sometimes being sold into prostitution and sex slavery," Cruz said. "The humanitarian crisis that comes from failing to secure our border is staggering."
Cruz pointed out the cruel reality of President Obama's DACA program, the abuse thousands of children potentially face as a result of the policy and broke down the numbers on how this crisis will get worse by next year. He also argued that the promotion of illegal immigration causes humanitarian crises like the one we're seeing right now.
In 2011, there were roughly 7,000 unaccompanied minors who were apprehended...In 2012, that number rose to 14,000. In 2013, it rose to 24,000. And, in 2014, your agency is estimating it is going to be as high as 90,000. In 2015, the administration is estimating that it will rise all the way to 145,000," Cruz said. Mr. Secretary, you testified to this committee the increase is a result of violence in Central America and there is surely violence in Central America, but if you look at the statistics
midway through 2012, was when Administration unilaterally granted amnesty to some 800,000 people who had been minors, with the so-called DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] proceeding. And, you can see sometime after that the numbers spike dramatically. Is it really your testimony that granting amnesty to some 800,000 people who came here illegally as children had no effect in causing a dramatic increase of children being handed over to international drug cartels to be smuggled in here illegally?
You tell’em Ted!
obama’s immigration policy - just another failure...
Ted Cruz is SMART. What a great way to turn the invasion debate into a discussion in which responsible hispanics and other dems will understand how outrageous the situation Obama created has become.
In this case...Obama's policies at our border and BocaHaran....what difference does it make?
These young girls are also old enough to start cranking out their own anchor babies.

The wrath that has come upon the US is not national, it simply seems that way because, while it is wrath upon individuals that have spit in His face, there are so many of these individuals and it is so wide spread that it seems to be national.
Indict everyone in the administration for violations of The Mann Act.
They Love kids. Love them so much that they want them to cross hostile land so they can come here and live as sex slaves for what seems to be like a mostly Liberal client base.
Being a Liberal means never having to say “Sorry”.
I’ve been praying for a year, “Lord, let our nation be humbled and return to You, no matter what it takes.” The human side of me fears greatly what it will take. The rest of me says, “We created this state of affairs. We must be prepared for the fallout. Returning to a godly nation trumps all else.”
And the biggest human trafficker is none other than the administration of B Hussein O.
“Hordes of unaccompanied children surge into the United States. Pedophiles and pimps rejoice! Boom times forecast for black market organ transplantation.”
I have to believe that this “children’s crusade” is being orchestrated. These kids from places like Honduras are crossing Mexico in large numbers alone. Mexico does enforce its borders and has harsh penalties for people illegally entering their country yet seems to be turning a blind eye to this hoard of children crossing their country illegally. Many of these kids appear to be too young to fend for themselves let alone cross Mexico and get across the US border. Despite the destitute conditions in their country I also believe that large numbers of parents would not just send their kids north into the unknown based on some newspaper article that says the US will care for them when they get there. This exodus is being organized, has the cooperation of the Mexican government and is being run by someone...my bet this children’s crusade has its roots in the White House. To me this would be an act of treason.
This was exactly the claim of the Border Patrol’s Officers

There were reports in the media of homosexual groups descending upon the shelters to “lend assistance”
Tell it, Ted!
I would like to see him also address the fact that this is an invasion deliberately planned by the Soros Administration in collusion with Mexico. These people have not stumbled through the desert to get here.
They have been transported here by the Obama Third World Import and Trucking Company, specializing in spreading diseases, overwhelming the native population, and populating large swathes of the country with people who have no skills, who don’t speak English, who have no desire to assimilate, and who have no allegiance to the USA.
The end goal is the destruction of our national sovereignty, the rule of law, and our civilization. Obama’s America-hating handlers are well along on their plans to turn us into a Third World hell hole — the fundamental change Obama promised.
I am not being melodramatic when I saw that I give our country about 2 years.
You nailed that! The Rats are promoting it!
A few days ago I wondered if the traffickers, queers and pedophiles had started swarming to the border yet. It just hadn't yet been reported.
Keep praying my friend.
