Posted on 06/19/2014 9:08:42 PM PDT by Tennessee Nana
Heavily pregnant woman ended up giving birth before she could be taken to hospital
A 27-year-old woman went into labor Wednesday while trying to enter the country through the Port of Lakeville in Arizona.
Federal authorities at the southern Arizona crossing ended up having to help deliver the baby.
A short time later, she successfully gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
The boy will be a United States citizen since he was born on American soil.
An ambulance was notified, but the Tohono O'odham tribal member went into labor and required the assistance of U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers medically trained as EMTs.
The officers assessed the woman and determined she would probably deliver prior to the ambulance's arrival
Once the woman gave birth, she and her newborn son were taken to a hospital in Phoenix.
Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and other state officials have authorized the Texas Department of Public Safety to begin emergency 'surge operations' along the border with Mexico in response to an influx of immigrants making the illegal crossing, mostly women and children from Central America.
State leaders authorized the department to spend on the surge as needed and provided an additional $1.3 million per week, according to a statement Perrys office released late Wednesday.
Department officials will be expected to report results of the surge to the governor and Legislature 'periodically,' the statement said.
'Texas can't afford to wait for Washington to act on this crisis, and we will not sit idly by while the safety and security of our citizens are threatened,' Perry said.
'Until the federal government recognizes the danger its putting our citizens in by its inaction to secure the border, Texas law enforcement must do everything they can to keep our citizens and communities safe.'

What do woman about to give birth often want to do..?
Walk across an unfamiliar desert at night carrying a big jug of water to a country you’ve never been to before.
US Military - “Nation building” (walk around giving out food until fired upon)
USBP - Delivering babies
NASA - Muslim outreach
IRS - Harassing voters
If you have a gun in your back for the first half of the walk, you would probably keep walking in hope of some kind Americans saving you and your baby. This crush of illegals into Texas and Arizona is a well orchestrated campaign, where the drug cartels are doing the unJustice department and or CIA a favor.
Stupid bitch, risking the life of her unborn baby as she commits a crime.
What is the mission of the DPS surge?
America’s civilizational suicide is in full swing. Madness everywhere you look.
These people were transported on buses thru Mexico and all arrived with Nikes and the same brand of jeans? Hello Red Eric!! Anybody home?
They should have refused.
“Tohono O’odham tribal member”, mother is a member of a recognized tribe with reservation lands on both sides of the border. Mother may in fact be American by birth.
why sneak into the country then ???
I was raised in El Paso, and we saw this all the time. Women who were obviously full term pregnant would cross the border on a shopping permit, or for whatever reason they would be able to manage, and would wait on the lawn of the public hospital hoping to go into labor before they had to return back across the border.
It was like a baby lottery -—
Baby born in America = stay in America free ticket.
It happened over and over again all day long, and that’s just one border city.
Just say the famous words...
“I don’t know nothin’ ‘bout birthin’ babies!”
She wasn’t, she was in line at the Lukeville Port of Entry.
Then why didn’t Mexico take care of her?
Talk about just in time delivery of anchor baby!
Possibly because she’s an American Indian, derp.
With the porous border and the lax policies, anchor babies are almost a moot point now. It used to be that the anchor baby would need to wait 21 years to sponsor the parent. So patience was still a virtue.
Aren’t there Mexican American Injuns?
“possibly” does not equal “is”
... Our American president .... Is not a friend of America!
The fact that she was crossing legally at the local port of entry indicates she more likely is than isn’t. Certainly she had the necessary documents.
The Daily Mail is throwing faux red meat to stir up comments that they can point at to criticize those ignorant racist colonists. (As if their country isn’t swirling the drain ahead of ours).
there are no other countries that give citizenship b/c you’re born on their soil. they rightly say the kid is a citizen of the country of their parent(s).
I’m not all for that women, but what else borderguards expected to do in this case
Arent there Mexican American Injuns?
AFAIK, the term American Indian refers to indigent tribal people on the American Continents (Canada down through South America), which provides differentiation from East Indians.
You better ask Ted Cruz. Canadian law is very similar to US - that’s why he renounced his Canadian citizenship.
I was kind of wondering the same thing myself. I see a lot of rhetoric, about protecting citizens, but what exactly, do they plan on doing?
I didn’t know you had to be poor to be Indian
The Yaqui maybe?
Is it to repel invasion, or to change diapers and kiss illegals’ azz. Makes a big difference!
If you were born in the Western Hemisphere, you're a citizen of the country you were born in.
This just shows you what kind of ignorant idiots we are getting as new “residents” in this country!
I believe the government is complicit in this travesty. We may even be paying the smugglers. Or we may be getting them to within a few miles of the Texas border then letting them walk the rest of the way all the time telling about their long arduous journey.
Tohoho O’odham. Used to be Papago. Tribe stradles border.
Well, so far, by the looks of it, it appears that changing diapers and kissing illegals azz is winning out.
Thank you. I checked it out. It mentioned Maricopa county. I wonder if Sheriff Joe meets any of them?
Hi chirumba, I crossed the goal line. My baby is now a us citizen!
They do not tend to be in Maricopa county. They are in Pima county.
Ask what they intend to do about the massive invasion of illegal aliens into Texas, bringing crime, disease, drugs and unbelievable expense to the state to care for them.
This is sheer insanity!
HOUSTON, TexasGovernor Rick Perry (R-TX) appeared on Fox News Fox and Friends show and said Texas lacks the resources and manpower to secure the 1,200 mile Texas border... BS!
Other Texas elected officials, speaking on condition of anonymity have told Breitbart Texas that Texas does, in fact, have the resources to conduct not only a surge operation, but a prolonged border control operation that would secure the Texas border with Mexico.
Now, Perry says he will do something. I'll believe it when I see it.
DO N'T LET THE MUZZIE GET AWAY WITH HIS CLOWARD-PIVEN SCHEME! DON'T LET HIM DESTROY TEXAS.
