Ambassador: Deportation Of Child Immigrants May Violate International Treaty
Daily Caller via Yahoo ^ | June 16, 2014

Posted on 06/16/2014 8:26:01 AM PDT by BradtotheBone

The U.S. may have violated international treaties in the way it has handled thousands of child immigrants being detained in facilities across the country, the Honduran ambassador to the U.S. is claiming.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection have scrambled to handle a surge of tens of thousands of “Unaccompanied Children,” or UACs, who come mostly from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico.

Instead of being immediately returned to their home countries after being apprehended, U.S. immigration policy requires the UACs to be housed in federal facilities while they are awaiting deportation proceedings.

But Honduras’ ambassador to the U.S. takes issue with the process, saying that deportation may violate international treaties.

“By order of the president, we are doing an in-depth study at the Embassy and the Foreign Ministry of this issue [of deportation],” said the ambassador, Jorge Milla Reyes, according to a Reuters article, which was translated from Spanish.

“We have serious doubts about the possibility of violation of some norms reflected in international treaties,” said Reyes without specifying which international treaties the U.S. may have violated.

Screw the international treaties, stop dumping your unwanted children here.

Maybe we should announce that minors abandoned in America will be put up for adoption and all past parental rights will be forfeit.

Obama is a stupid as a lemming, but his handlers are political chess players. They knew this was the case and backed us into a corner.

Now America either goes the way of Rome (quicker) or is seen as an international pariah for sending “children” back to their home countries.

This is a no-win for real Americans.

Hey Jorge! How about releasing the American crew of the R/V Aqua-Quest that your holding in Honduras for having a couple firearms aboard for their protection.

I take issue with your country holding these American’s in deplorable conditions on trumpted up charges.

Go pound sand, Ambassador. Americans have no obligation to feed, clothe and educate the children your citizens failed to provide for.

This guy is an a$$, He has some nerve to blame the US when it is HIS people who are violating our laws, both kids and adults. Sure the kids have a right to be with their parents — in their own country, not here unless here legally. I’m getting sick and tired of these idiots from countries whose citizens are violating our laws, telling us what we should/can and shouldn’t/cannot do.

It seems only natural that the Honduran government, after dumping its undesirables into the US, would not want them shipped back ...

This invasion of our nation by non-citizens is the 2014 equivalent of the MARIEL BOATLIFT. News of the generous benefits and entitlements accorded US residents has spread around the globe. Now we have an invasion that may topple our republic. Too bad we don't have the backbone to secure the borders and re-think our too-good-to-last charity to anyone who asks.

That’s right. To hell with federal and state laws, not to mention the US Constitution. We need to worry about some international treaty. Un freaking believable.

Am I reading this right?
It appears the AMB is saying we should have immediately sent the illegals back
That is the violation he is mentioning, I think

What a great idea
let’s do it NOW

That sounds like a fine solution-bring them up as Americans-with loyalty, values and a work ethic. I know hard-working conservatives who would love to adopt a child, but do not have the extortionate amounts of cash that mothers and many adoption agencies demand-and many of us in this area of Texas are bilingual, too-no need for outside English classes.

“or is seen as an international pariah for sending “children” back to their home countries.”

That doesn’t make any sense. How is it bad in anything but the Obama sense, for people to be in their own countries?

That said, If countries want to make us a pariah I don’t see that as anything but good anyway. It means we have another reason to cut aid to them once Barry leaves or is forced out.

Dear Ambassador Reyes,
Deporting them is preferable to euthanizing them; which do you prefer?

They are not “deporting” the children, they are simply “repatriating” them with their families back in Central America.

The court of public opinion would be exceptionally bad on us if we sent “children” back to their home countries.

Don’t misunderstand, I’m not advocating they stay. I’m simply pointing out that they’re laying the groundwork for amnesty here brick-by-brick.

Why? Certainly with libs. But I don’t think the genpub would be so negative. I just don’t think ‘we’ want this as musch as the media says we do.

They’re priming the pump of international outrage, however feigned it may be, in order to make the public think that this is against some stupid international treaty. The liberals know exactly what they’re doing.

I fully agree they do. My point is as Brietbart said “SO?”

We have to stop giving a damn about international outrage, liberal outrage and any other outrage. HAVE TO. Or we are truly screwed.

What is international condemnation gonna do when it loses its funding to be offended? Because sooner or later, they will push their dog and pony show too far, piss the moderates off and lose all of it. I think we should encourage international outrage as much and often as possible. Play into the liberals fantasy and pull the rug out from under them.

I am NOT saying accept the ‘children’. I am saying the complete opposite. The libs WANT us to reject them for PR value. Lets do that. And use their own Cloward Piven strategies against them.

Once the moderates realize they are gonna pay for them, it’s over.

I understand. The thing is that we are getting to the point that people are choosing actively to do or not to do based on what they ‘think’ the libs will do in response to a given action.

If that continues, we are in a deeper mess than we imagine and in fact, may as well just stop the fight now as it’s over..

And if they stay, I hope the Millenials who unleashed the AntiChrist on us have their jobs stolen by the Amnestees when they get older and force them to pay for their and their children’s healthcare, EBT cards, and housing. The Millenials deserve a little retribution for the harm they’ve caused to America by electing a complete traitor and then keeping him in office a 2nd term. Payback is coming and we won’t have to do a thing...

The Millenials are already, by and large, unemployed. They love it. I have 2 cousins who fall into this category. they’re in the late 20s, live at home with mom and dad, wake up around noon, play video games all day, get drunk at night, rinse, repeat.
