Honduras’ First Lady Says She Will Collect Her Country's Child Immigrants
Newsweek ^ | June 19, 2014 | Karla Zabludovsky

Posted on 06/21/2014 9:11:00 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Honduras’s first lady will travel to the United States to find and return the country’s unaccompanied minors who have recently flooded across the border, the president’s office said Wednesday.

In an effort to track down 13,000 Honduran children who made their way to the U.S. through Mexico, President Juan Orlando Hernández has created a commission that includes transportation, migration and foreign affairs authorities. But immigration lawyers say Honduran officials will face several legal challenges before they can repatriate the children.

A surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America has overwhelmed U.S. authorities in recent months. Between October 2013 and May of this year, nearly 50,000 children under 18 traveling without a parent or guardian were apprehended, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection....

That should be pretty easy. Her government and Mexico’s government likely brought them to the border.

I like that some South American country and leader is stepping up. It is a disgrace to all nations that they are so bad that children are willing to flee from them without any adult support.

Mexico is a crap pile. They are the worst. I don’t blame the kids for wanting to flee. I just wish Mexican’s didn’t want to then turn us into Mexico. How is that a good thing for them?

Obama made his point. Approve amnesty or I will invite every person from Mexico to Argentina here, shelter them, feed them and house them on your tax dollar.

And there isn’t a damn thing you can do to stop me.

I wouldn’t be suprised if we aren’t paying those countries to take back their kids.

While she is at it she should file human rights violations against Mexico for its lack of effort in curbing slavery and human rights trafficking.

Why is Mexico always given a free pass? We have every right to invade them and kill every last cartel member. How are the cartels any different than the Taliban? Just as violent, just as wretched, just as extreme, and they reap terror everywhere they go. Their goal is political control and they are absolutely a terror group. Mexico is guilty of harboring them and their Gov is guilty of supporting them. We can invade other nations, launch drone strikes and assassination missions in Pakistan and Afghanistan but Mexico gets a free pass because why exactly? Cheap labor?

As long as the Honduran government is paying for it I’m fine with this. Send her up here, round them up, send them back, and bill the Hondurans for the costs we incurred. Deduct it from the “aid” we send them if necessary.

If she does so, that is an honorable and compassionate thing to do and we should publicly commend and thank her.

That would be damned decent... and follow it up by going after the jackals that “escorted” them.

"I wouldn’t be suprised if we aren’t paying those countries to take back their kids."

We are. With the just announced $240 plus million in additional aid to several central American countries to ameliorate conditions that lead to the migrations. It is a charade. We are spending even more of our borrowed dollars and I bet we will keep the "kids." (Many of these kids look like young gang members, some with mustaches.) Obama has thrown the border wide, invited in a human wave of invaders and found a way to throw even more money away at the same time.

Here is a spot-on description of Obama:

“At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child - miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill disciplined, despotic, and useless.
Liberalism is the philosophy of sniveling brats.”

― P.J. O'Rourke

Why is it that ignoring a border only goes ONE way? If South Americans can consider the US free to enter we should do the same. ERASE the border,declare Mexico and Central America ours. TAKE IT,contol it,occupy it,use it. Declare it all the USA. We might as well have the land-we have the people!Give away parcels of land to Americans. Infiltrate THEIR culture. Erase it. This is the strong being intimidated by the weak. Reverse it. No borders mean your countries are OURS not the opposite. As for these “children” inflicted upon us.-load up the planes ,put parachutes on them and drop them over Mexico City. Free plane rides back to your hellhole and free kids for whoever want them. Their parents obviously don`t.

Why not just invoke the Elian Gonzalez policy, and put SWAT teams on the job of collecting these kids at gunpoint and shipping them back to their countries? After all, isn’t that the current liberal policy towards alien children seeking refuge here?

Funny how these same “lawyers” don’t have any problem with any Tomas, Ricardo or Henrico just turni9ng up and claiming those same children without any proof that they are related and with no “legal challenges” at all...

and strange how they don’t object to the children being flown around the country to those same unproven family members..

but send them back home to their families ???

oh no we cant do that...

well why not ???

What someone needs to explain to me, is how these children made it to our shores in the first place. Without transportation and support, traversing from Honduras and elsewhere through Mexico up to the U. S. border and beyond without getting caught would be a very difficult task.

Mexico has armed troops on it’s southern border.

Coyotes? Sorry, Coyotes are in their trade for what? Humanitarian purposes? No! They’re in it to make money. So how did these kids get through Mexico and through the U. S. border?

Folks, something is going on here. Governments must be involved. If I’m wrong, then some other high level entity is bringing these children to the U. S.

Find out now! Who is doing this? Why?

In warfare, it’s sometimes a practice used to confound the enemy before attack. What the hell is going on here?

any person who trafficks in children...

Human trafficking is reprehensible beyond words and our gov is at the very least enabling it. It's a crime against humanity, and those who have anything to do with that should be tried in the Hague for it.

We can talk all we want about the invasion of the US and the slippery slope global civilization is on. I'm beyond disgusted that everybody in charge of anything only cares of how it helps their agenda and profits. But here, these children aren't just part of the problems. They're victims and should be repatriated to their homelands and families.

What she means is that she (ie. our government) brought them here and is collecting them. And you and I are paying fr it.

IMHO, the Obama administration is the one who had the plan to bring these kids in, and then spread them around through the country...just as is being done. And they are allowing these people, in essence, to stand in for the LEOs and move them forward. Anyhow...IMHO, the Obama administration facilitated this thing, and the stories about these kids running from drug cartels, and newspaper publishing stories to encourage it is either a cover for their operation, or something be used to help facilitate it.

In January of this year, the federal Government, through the Department of Homeland Security, solicited a contract for vendors to provide the escort services to our border for these “Unaccompanied Alien Children,” to the tune of 65,000 of them.

Totally agree with you concerning trafficking of children and going after the “escorts”. I say follow the money, and I’ll lay money down that it ends up in the White House. Yeah, you’re probably right: “we know that will never happen”, and considering the track record of those who have authority to do “something” and have not done anything or not nearly enough. Obama and his minions know they’re untouchable because too many of us are becoming passive about all this and thinking it’s easier to wait out his last 2 years. We sit here on FR and gripe and get pissed and riled up, but no one, or too few of us, want to really get involved, really get LOUD and take ACTION that counts. We have too much to lose (a job, a home, family), or not enough spare time. I just don’t know. Two years is too long to wait - I look at all the damage he’s done in the past six months and wonder where are we going to be at the end of these two more years.

Honduras was run by the military until 1982 when it was turned over to civilian control and that was when its constitution was created. It was not a constitutional republic in 1974.
