Obama Admin Forbids Lawmakers From Taking Photos Of Illegal Immigrant Facility

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.

The girls are being siphoned off as sex slaves.
Some of the “boys” are terrorists.

The American Caliphate will not tolerate
pictures of either.

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?

It doesn’t have that much legitimacy.

The executive branch ordering the legislative branch around?

Impeach him and then fire Congress.

Just in: the Obama administration now forbids everyone from doing anything that the Obama administration doesn’t like.

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.
