Honduran President Says U.S. Weak Laws To Blame For Child Migration Crisis
Fox News Latino ^ | June 13, 2014 | Ninoska Marcano

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, on a visit to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Friday, said the U.S. has to strengthen efforts to control the humanitarian crisis that both nations face with unaccompanied migrant children crossing the U.S. Southwest border.

At the end of his speech to the chamber, where the Honduran head of state discussed his nation’s short- and long-term investment projects with U.S. businesses, Hernández seemed to blame the U.S. for the crisis – saying a lack of immigration reform and weak drug laws has contributed to the problem.

It is unfair, he said, for his nation to tackle the surge of migrant unaccompanied children alone.

“We are very worried about the children, but sadly this is a security problem provoked by drug trafficking from the drugs that are consumed by the US, and this has had an impact in the displacement situation (of Hondurans,)” Hernández, who took office in January, told Fox News Latino. “The U.S. has to be more proactive (with the immigration reform) because these separations are inhumane.”

To tackle the humanitarian crisis of the migrant unaccompanied children, Hernández said his government has asked Mexican officials to immediately set up four new Honduran consulates in the Mexican-Honduran border known as “Ruta del inmigrante” to provide humanitarian aid and custom and immigration support as the flow of people – mostly children alone or with their parents – reach the area.

Hernández also said he wants the U.S. to work jointly with Honduras to fight drug cartels as they have done in the past with countries such as Colombia and México.

That’s what happens when you refuse to enforce your own immigration laws, and buy air time in Central America inviting people to come on up.

I am tired of picking up the bill for the rest of the world.

They’re only interested in us for welfare. We’re broke. We don’t have anymore to give. We don’t even have enough for the ones here now.

We don’t have weak laws, we have a president who has ordered the Border Patrol and ICE to not enforce them.

<>“We are very worried about the children”<>

But not worried enough to feed our children to the Beast:

Our existing US Federal Border Laws are strong.

Our US Federal Politicians are to weak to enforce our existing Border Laws.

The word “Fix” to a Federal Politician in “both” parties means DO NOT ENFORCE to We, The People.

Until all the EXISTING US Federal Border Laws are strictly enforced, there is no need to pass new ones.

And this is why the difference between the opinion of an outsider and a bucket of shit is the bucket. Our laws are fine. It’s the criminals in government who deliberately fail to enforce those laws who are the problem.

In fact, this guy is probably a co-conspirator just covering his tracks.

I notice the Honduran president doesn't try to stem the tied of minors immigrating illegally. Rather, he's greasing the skids.

The American people had better prepare to take matters into their own hands because the criminals who run their country are overwhelming them with migrants.

Yes our lax laws are a problem in many areas, not the least of which is our Southern border however, I seem to have heard somewhere that Mexico has strong borders and stringent penalties for border jumpers.

If that is indeed a fact, how and why did all of these babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and grade school children (they are ALL babies and pre-schoolers in the photos I keep seeing in the news) how did Mexico allow them to jump their borders and not wind up in the hoosegow?

I seem to smell a rat, or in this case a cucaracha, as Mexico is assisting this abomination!

Still, Hernandez has a point. Our immigration laws are weaker than his immigration laws.

And one feature of our existing immigration law, in particular, could stand strengthening. Illegal entry is currently identified as a misdemeanor infraction. It should be a felony.

No need to pass new ones no matter what - Moratorium on all immigration legal and illegal.

Don’t the progressives bitch that we are terrible because we destabilize other countries, and then back a leader friendly to us so that we can redirect tax funds to US companies who rebuild the destabilized, wrecked country? Someone else gets the task of actually running the country. We simply tell them some of the policies they must embrace. We tell them that US companies will get preference over their own.

So, we aren’t picking up the bill - the Latin countries whose youth are coursing into our country are just gettin back some of their own. We OWE them, because they couldn’t build any roads if OUR Fed Government hadn’t taken them over and stole all of their money and made them poor and made their children be in danger and so we are rich on their backs anyway and we have plenty and they are doing the work we are too lazy to do ... wait, where am I?

Bottom line. It’s the fault of the USA, so we have to pay for all these illegals AND fix the problems over in the home countries of all of the aliens.

Because the USA is bad. We take over shit and steal everyone’s money. And make them take drugs. Poor kids.

Headline: "Honduran President Says U.S. Weak Laws To Blame For Child Migration Crisis"

I call Horsestuff on this one. Somebody is organizing this from start to finish, and someone, more than likely the same organization organizing the movement of all these illegals is getting funding arranged for it. There is no such thing as a free lunch crisis.

Manhood in many of these countries is measured by how many children a man has fathered.

Oh, some of the children may be malnourished and die from disease, but that doesn't enter into the equation.

South American governments and Mexico see the United States as a kind of population safety valve for these countries.

I'm not sure where they'll go once the USA is full.

How about we migrate some nukes down there and see if this stops.

That’s about as “humanitarian” as I’m willing to go: these people brought it on themselves and their own children. If they care no more for their children than this, why should we.

I don’t like the fact that there is a Fox News Latino Division.
