Jeh Johnson: Welfare State Doesn't Draw Illegal-Alien Children to U.S.

June 13, 2014 - 5:25 AM

By Penny Starr

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson spoke about the U.S. government's response to the growing number of youth crossing the border illegally on June 12, 2014 in Washington, D.C. (CNSNews.com/Penny Starr)

(CNSNews.com) – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the wide range of services the government is providing to unaccompanied minors who cross the border into the U.S. illegally will not encourage more of them to break the law.

What will the wide range of services do if not encourage?

Do government subsidies no longer create demand?

BS. And I’ll post it again: How did unaccompanied children breach the well defended Mexico border, and make it more than a thousand miles through Mexico to the US, and then inside our border? Who escorted them? Who paved the way?

This should be asked over and over and over, until there are some answers.

Will the National Park Service be getting rid of its “Do Not Feed the Bears” signs any time soon? No, of course not, because even they know that free stuff attracts moochers.

This is my question too. Those who are dropping those kids off at the Mexican border should be arrested for child abuse.

Oh no of course it doesnt. And the world is safer than its ever been. And AL-Qaeda is on the run. And Lois Lerners emails were lost due to a glitch. And the “Great Society” hasnt destroyed the two-parent household in the black community. And you can raise the minimum wage with impunity and add regulations to business without any negative consequences to job growth, consumer prices and the economy whatsoever.

Oh yeah, and dont the emperors...I mean Obama’s new clothes just look marvelous.

Children don’t naturally travel thousands of miles on their own without organization by adults, especially in cultures intolerant of wayward children.

Parents wouldn’t let their children meander towards a foreign country, hundreds to thousands of miles away, amongst a culture of infamous coyotes and picayunish frauds likely to entice them into human trafficking.

Even the impoverished have human natures which value the care of their children greater than this.

IMHO, the movement might include orphans and delinquents emptied from institutions and redirected to our borders, orchestrated by well financed and organized pockets.

This an operational campaign well planned by others behind this.

Well advertise they will only be allowed to eat from Michelle Obama approved dietary plans. No 32 oz Big Gulps, no potatoes, no sugar, no transfats, few carbohydrates, and limited protein.

I am amazed that no one has blown the whistle on this yet. A mass migration like this must have attracted attention along its route.

one way is Los Zetas-controlled LaBestia - the (freight) train - from Veracruz to Mexico City. $100 bucks American a pop, don’t fall off. Aid stations set up at every stop along the way. As are the child slavers, molestors and extortionists. Illegals in America are willing to pay cartels up to $5,000 to start and $5,000 on delivery for a coyote escort, no guarantees. (that’s up to 10K in earnings that don’t go into the local US economy)

Mexico’s Migration Law, passed unanimously in August 2010, has the purpose of providing illegals “safe passage” to the American border. They haven’t got to the “safe passage” part but the direct channeling is now codified into Mexican law.

Mexico’s “Migration Law”—thanks for the reference. It’s very helpful. I’ll have to follow it up.

So, it’s institutionalized that the stream can go through Mexico on the train, with the Mexican criminal element free to pick off a few for fun or profit, but not consume the whole herd?

Any place in this for US collusion? Why this year, so much more than previous years?

Of course. We’ve been hearing the pleas for illegals for years, and 2014 is the only time I’ve ever even heard that we must save all the unaccompanied minors. We never even heard about unaccompanied minors and I don’t even believe their stats. This is a setup.

US collusion? oh I dunno. Did central and south American newspapers who ran glowing articles of the utopian life awaiting children do so on a subtle suggestion? like from Jeh Johnson? or even higher? Maybe.

From our friends at Brietbart (and probably already posted on here but I’m too lazy to look):

“Newsmax pointed out that Diario El Mundo, a paper in El Salvador, recently reported that U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said, “Almost all agree that a child who crossed the border illegally with their parents, or in search of a father or a better life, was not making an adult choice to break our laws, and should be treated differently than Adult violators of the law.”

“It is easy to surmise that such reports emerging from Central America, some of which make U.S. processing facilities sound comfortable and enjoyable, could encourage more Honduras children to make the trip to the U.S.”

Jeh reminds me of every Obama appointee and they act dumb as hell too. I highly suspect that the attorneys who are going to see these kids are doing it to find out where to send the 5K child protective services payment to the parent(s). These folks smell 5K for each child plus a free ride in the USA for their kid. They are most likely busy trying to produce more 5 K kids.

forgot to add, you might find Kelly File interesting:

“Exclusive video of drug cartels crossing southern border”

interview of filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch, who went down to the border. He claims men are “hooking up” with random women and children and acting as a family to gain entry. The left have already labeled him wacko:

I’m guessing the Mexican government had something to do with this. One idea to deal with this is to shut down most of the Mexican consulates in this country (they have a disproportionate number of them, compared to what other countries have) and also shut down the border until they give it up.

and I will continue asking that same question with you.

It costs money to move people. It takes lots of money, and lots of people to move lots of people across a country like Mexico that has a border policy they enforce viciously.

Deal makers of the leftist bent have been at work, and we all know it.

When queried about how they go there and where they intend to go once they are here, most of them have been given cell phones with points of contact of where to go to be received into the economy. Their foreign lands were broadcasting on radio and TV how the changed immigration policies favored the children coming first, then bringing the other family members. Meanwhile, those legitimately attempting to immigrate through the system, found themselves on a waiting list and as their names came to the top, if they had children, they were immediately placed at the back of the list. It only made sense to ship the children over to other safekeepers and then bring in the remaining family members to become citizens.

Would you in a kind way refer to the government as an Ineptocracy?

Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’ra-cy)

A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
