Obama Admin Forbids Lawmakers From Taking Photos Of Illegal Immigrant Facility
dailycaller.com ^ | june 12, 2014 | chuck ross

Posted on 06/13/2014 2:44:29 PM PDT by lowbridge

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is welcoming members of Congress and their senior staff to tour a temporary shelter being used to house illegal immigrant children — but the invite comes with a list of rules, including a suggestion that members leave their cellphones in their vehicles.

The 40-minute tour will take place Friday at the Ventura County Naval Base in Oxnard, Calif., according to the email invitation, obtained by The Daily Caller.

The tours are meant to give members and staffers an inside look at how temporary facilities are being used to house illegal immigrant children who came to the U.S. without their parents. The minors, who hail mostly from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, are being called “Unaccompanied Children,” or UACs.

Sent to members of Congress and staff by Rose Hacking, of the office of the assistant secretary of legislation at HHS, the invitation comes with the following commands:

No recording devices will be allowed (We may ask you to leave your cellphone in our vehicle) No questions will be allowed during the tour, but questions will be addressed later No interacting with staff and children at the shelter We will provide photos of the facility after the tour

During the tour, ”the tour guide will detail what goes on from room to room and the services youth are provided on a daily basis,” the email invitation reads.

But one congressional staffer invited to tour the facility called the planned tours “a dog and pony show.”

“Don’t talk to anyone, don’t record anything you might happen to see, but come visit us and we’ll give you a sanitized story with only the photos and accounts we want you to have,” said the staffer, who requested anonymity.

Or what? Are they going to imprison members of Congress? Is this a Classified operation? Sorry. Congress is not subject to the whims of an executive branch bureaucrat.

An historic presidency in so many ways.

Can you imagine the uproar if Bush had told legislators that they can tour a facility but cannot record anything?

Why am I reminded of the scene in "Seven Days in May" when the presidential advisor, having discovered the makings of a coup, was held incommunicado by the consipirators. Is something big going to happen soon, or am I crazy?

Obama “asks” congress and the media to do such things because he knows congress is too cowed to argue and the press would lick Obama’s hemorrhoids if requested.

Maybe it’s time for people to start spying on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and those who run that organization. We pay for it... lets find out what’s really going on inside their walls.

This sounds like one of those “feed the children” commercials - cept it’s live and in-person. I can’t imagine any other purpose for doing this other than “fund-raising” or finger-pointing.

Once upon a time, there were three branches of the US government: executive, legislative, and Judicial. Now there are Obama et al, a bunch of girly boys, and Eric von Holder.

That “email” is too creepy in every respect. It’ scary. What country are we living in? Certainly it cannot be America.

Why is Congress obeying and bowing to obama?

So they will visit and view the children as if it were a zoo visit. Will petting be allowed?

I have no heart for those children. They belong with their parents and in their own country. If Americans did this, send their children to a foreign country unsupervised, wouldn’t there be an uproar? Child services involved? parents arrested?

I see America as “legally” (snort) kidnapping foreign children.

Obama's thugs are so stupid. Banning photos insures more of them will be taken, somewhere, somehow.

There'a market for these photos and video clips. Megyn Kelly and Sean are licking their chops as we type......and they'll show all such stuff offered to them, the more sensational the better.

Hope everyone has a long-lasting supply of pop-corn in the larder.

They are scared out of their minds that a congressman might ask these children where they came from, how they got here, and what they were told would happen before they got here.

THAT is the reason the blackout.

Congress needs to subpoena some of these children to testify so we can learn how the administration is complicit in this fiasco.
