Az Gov. Jan Brewer To Congress: End 'Unconscionable' And 'Manufactured' Border Crisis
Breitbart ^ | 6-13-14 | by TONY LEE

Posted on 06/13/2014 2:43:00 PM PDT by kingattax

On Thursday evening, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer asked Congress to end the "intentional and unconscionable" humanitarian crisis at the border that the Obama administration has created and ignored.

In a letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Brewer mentioned that illegal immigrants are actually flagging down border patrol agents so they can enter the United States, where the Obama administration has led them to believe they will receive amnesty. She said it was also their responsibility to do something about the crisis at the border.

"As congressional leaders, you have the ability to take action, get answers and stop the lawlessness that is unfolding. On behalf of the State of Arizona, I ask you to do so," she said. "I urge you to use your voice, and the authority of your offices and the institutions you lead, to immediately and permanently terminate this atrocious policy and stop this massive, unfettered influx of illegal crossings into our country."

Brewer said that the federal government's "primary and fundamental responsibility" is "protecting our nation and its citizens," "but it cannot be done as long as we have an unsecured border and a federal executive that invites and encourages illegal activity."

The Feds claimed to be overwhelmed, so she has a golden opportunity to impose control over the situation at the state level. Force Obama’s hand and make him out as the monster he is for creating this crisis. Instead, Jan sends a strongly worded letter that will be ignored.

Get Greta to interview her. She loves the spotlight. That will get her granny panties in a bunch and she just might bluff her way into protecting us.

1996 Congress passed a law Title 8 Section 1103 of the US code to use our state sheriff and police force to rebuff the boatlift of the 1990’s.

Doesn't the state of AZ have the legal right and obligation to make sure those children's living conditions meet standards? If they're minors without parents, shouldn't the parents be notified? Hey Jan, how about JAILING anyone who's supervising children in conditions that are unhealthy and inadequate? I actually think that's an obligation, and any adult involved in keeping kids locked up in substandard conditions should end up in jail. And what about the highway patrol? Don't let those vehicles go anywhere if there are unaccompanied minors without approval slips from parents.

Hey Jan, you CAUSED this problem by caving when you had a chance to stand strong. So stop whining and DO SOMETHING....like jail anyone who obeys orders to keep kids in those conditions.

Yet another example of electing ‘lesser evils’. this is what you get when the SHTF folks. Take a good look and remember come election day.

Because it isn’t a Democrat REFUSING to use their power to the fullest and stop this mess. It is a RINO writing cute little letters to other RINOS on record as being FOR THIS MESS.

.....the grotesque undermining of US ntl security to consolidate Third World plans to takeback the SW has been going on for far too long........

CONSPIRACY AND COLLUSION---The Congressional Hispanic Caucus needs to be examined for its role in this outrage.

Cong Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill): said 'Every Institution in America' Should Work Around Fed. Immigration Laws
Breitbart's Big Government / Tony Lee / FR Posted on ‎5‎/‎19‎/‎2014‎ ‎3by 2ndDivisionVet

(VIDEO-AT-LINK) On Monday, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) suggested that until Congress passes sweeping amnesty legislation, "every institution in America" should find ways to ignore or work around federal immigration laws. He also said that President Barack Obama's Deferred Action program was the first step in implementing more amnesty programs. Testifying before a Senate Subcommittee hearing in Chicago on "Immigrant Enlistment" that Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) chaired, Gutierrez said that "every institution in America, including our military, must work around the inability of our federal government and the U.S. House of Representatives to fix our immigration system."

He also pushed the Navy and Marines to allow U.S. citizens who are married to illegal immigrants to enlist at a hearing in which Durbin called on the Pentagon to start enlisting DREAMers. Gutierrez, one of the most vocal pro-amnesty legislators, has repeatedly called on Obama to flout the nation's immigration laws even more and act unilaterally to give amnesty to more illegal immigrants, including the families of those offered temporary amnesty. "DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] is an important first step in implementing modern immigration policies that reflect our values and strengthen our nation," he said. "Next we must fully incorporate DACA recipients and their families and the millions of immigrants who live among us into our society."(continued) (Excerpt) Read more at breitbart.com ...

This imbecile Gutierrez and his co-conspirators need to be exposed. We need to determine where Gutierrez is getting his orders from and with whom he is colluding. Gutierrez outlines treacherous activities which are significant national security threats......which serve to undermine the US' sacrosanct rule of law. These acts correspond with flaccid, decrepit Third World countries' calculated plans to weaken and subjugate the US to their evil demands.

Gutierrez and his co-conspirators are a national security threat and present a clear danger to law-abiding US citizens. Many illegal are hardened criminals w/ convictions for: (1) drunk or drugged driving, (2) aggravated assault, (3) flight escape, (4) pedaling dangerous drugs, (5) vehicle theft, (6) kidnapping, (7) sexual assault, and, (8) homicide.

The 36,007 criminal released by ICE in 2013 were encumbered w/ about 88,000 convictions.

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

The Obama Administration is desperate to retain its majority---the raison d'etre for releasing Third World criminals from incarceration/detention. Obama is also trying to be helpful to vote-crazed Democrats scared silly about 2014 midterms; Dems desperately need illegals to vote using their several identities to hang onto their seats.

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

Americans demand to know which laws/rules/procedures are being violated. Clearly official documents need to be falsified in order to accomplish the goals of Gutierrez and his Third World buddies.

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

TALKING POINTS The C/H/C has been quiet about its role in financing, and, earmarking, the blood-thirsty America-hating La Raza.....race-based "La Raza" was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its so-called mortgage activities. La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the fraudulent mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards.......which caused taxpayers to be socked w/ billions in bailouts......decimating the US economy. economy. La Raza aided and abetted risky federal and private-home loans to latinos over the last decade. thanks to the lending industry’s version of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

In addition to millions of federal tax dollars, La Raza also collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling." (waiting or hysterical laughter to die down)

They need to go full force on it. Control all borders, protect the state from invasion at the international border, turn away illegal alien buses at the state borders, are prohibit deplaning at airports.

They should also go to court and attack.

If Obama sends the feds the spectacle will be a PR disaster.

Nothing is gained by responding. Everything is gained by driving events, setting the agenda, establishing the narrative.

That was a little curt. My apologies.

But consider the situation...

Brewer mentioned that illegal immigrants are actually flagging down border patrol agents so they can enter the United States, where the Obama administration has led them to believe they will receive amnesty.

In other words, calling out the Guard isn't going to keep the illegal children out of the U.S. They'll take the kids into custody...and turn them over to ICE, just like the Border Patrol.

The feds are the only people who can deal with this problem. They need to feed, clothe and house them...and determine where they came from. Then, they need to approach the countries involved and advise them that they will be returning X children to the country and are willing to contribute to their care and keeping until they can be returned to their home village and parents.

WHEREUPON THEY NEED TO BE DEPORTED!!!

However, with this administration, that's not going to happen, is it?

Nice find!

8 U.S. Code § 1103 (a)(10)

In the event the Attorney General determines that an actual or imminent mass influx of aliens arriving off the coast of the United States, or near a land border, presents urgent circumstances requiring an immediate Federal response, the Attorney General may authorize any State or local law enforcement officer, with the consent of the head of the department, agency, or establishment under whose jurisdiction the individual is serving, to perform or exercise any of the powers, privileges, or duties conferred or imposed by this chapter or regulations issued thereunder upon officers or employees of the Service.

Only problem is Eric Holder. He sues states that try to protect themselves. Holder has been found in Contempt of Congress, they can imprison him. Now would be a good time.

States must stand up to these criminals.

But, hey, I’m up for the fight, I have been delivering the message all day.

Please spread this US code. It’s the remedy. And then if people know about this, we can confront our politicians and see if they act.

I really don't think shooting children for committing a misdemeanor -- yes, illegal entry is, under the law, a misdemeanor -- would be welcomed as a satisfactory solution.

C'mon, folks. If we want the governor to "do something", we've got to come up with something that might actually work.
