Cruz on Fox: Border Crisis for Kids Result of Obama's Message
Breitbart ^ | 12 June 2014 | Bob Price

Posted on 06/13/2014 6:13:50 PM PDT by SoConPubbie

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on Fox News and blamed the current humanitarian crisis involving a flood of children and older minors entering the U.S. illegally on President Barrack Obama’s failure to secure the U.S. border with Mexico and the President's rhetoric on the issue. Sen. Cruz appeared on The Kelly File with Fox News host Megyn Kelly on Wednesday night to discuss this crisis and the trade of the five Taliban terrorists.

During the interview with Cruz, Fox News streamed the photos released by Breitbart Texas managing director, Brandon Darby, that brought the deplorable conditions under which these children are being held to light. “This is a humanitarian crisis and it is a direct result of President Obama's lawlessness and unwillingness to enforce the law,” Sen. Cruz said. “In 2011 there were roughly 6,000 unaccompanied minors that came across the border. This year it is expected there would be roughly 90,000, next year they're projecting up to 145,000.”

“It's important to understand what causes this… President Obama unilaterally and illegally granted amnesty to some 800,000 people who were here illegally who came as children,” Cruz stated.

Cruz went on to say, “And what that has prompted as parents throughout Central and South America are giving their young children, and handing them over to smugglers. And it's worth emphasizing, these are transnational global criminal cartels and parents are giving them teenage girls, teenage boys, these boys are subject, these girls are subject to physical assault, to sexual assault, to being sold in the prostitution. It is horrific.”

Addressing the exchange of the “Taliban 5” terrorists for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, Cruz said, “All five of these were senior members of the Taliban, which was intertwined with

Current humanitarian crisis caused by obama’s incompetence:

- USA / illegal immigrant children
- People in Iraq
- people in Libya
- people in Syria

He is the worst president in our history. There isn’t a close second.

This is planned chaos. I am sure Obama operatives are behind it.

It is so reminiscent of Fidel Castro’s great trick on the US, when he freed thousands of violent Cuban criminals and sent them on boats to Florida. The chaos that followed was unbelievable.

I keep wondering where the Patriots are while this is going on at the border. If the BP is too occupied dealing with the “children” that the cartels are sliding drugs and probably worse things across the border, then they are too busy to protect America. Every able bodied person who loves our country needs to get down there ASAP and take control. If you can do it for the Bundy ranch, you can do it to save the country. I hope everyone saw the man (whose name I don’t know) who was on with Kelly a bit ago. He is literally panicked.

There are a lot of young men with mustaches in Obama’s Human Pounds, as evident in the photos. A fresh supply of gang members...or jihadis sneaking in with the invaders?

obvious has something to do with that dreamer program.

Free access to to the USA and our job market and welfare just about to be given away to anyone willing to steal a place at the front of the line.

In that poll, it makes a little more sense. However, even in that poll I would have him no higher than 6th best.
