White House wants to monitor illegal aliens with ankle bracelets
nypost.com ^ | june 21, 2014 | goeff earle

Posted on 06/21/2014 7:22:28 PM PDT by lowbridge

After getting battered by critics for failing to confront a full-blown crisis at the US border, the White House rolled out a new plan to stem the flood of women and children crossing illegally that included ankle bracelets to monitor the migrants.

Other measures announced Friday would add judges, lawyers, and asylum officers to quickly process the human tide that has overwhelmed the immigration service and Border Patrol. Central American nations also would receive nearly $100 million in funding to help combat the problem.

“We are surging our enforcement resources,” said Obama’s domestic policy adviser Cecilia Muñoz.

She said the administration would also “push back” on the “misinformation” being spread that migrants who sneak into the United States would be welcome to stay.

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) first floated the idea of using ankle bracelets on immigrants awaiting court hearings to free space in overcrowded detention centers.

Let “the White House” pay for them out of their own budget. The illegals will just take them off and pawn them for a few bucks.

.... Well Apparently the latest polls have come in for Mr. Obama ... it's now time to put on a different mask and start practicing the Islamic tradition of "Taqiyya" (Ya .. Look it up).

..... BTW .... I bet those ankle bracelets are really standing by to be used on Conservatives and anybody that actually still believes in the Constitution of the United States!

Why not send them back and save the trouble. While they are at it, hire some of them at dirt cheap wages to secure the border.

I get it. It’s like ‘Idiocracy,’ but without the efficiency of bar codes and tattoos. So it’s dumber than a movie about a dystopian society where the average IQ was about room temperature.

What’s to prevent exactly that—the “migrants”, aka illegal aliens, taking off the monitors and staying as long as they like? Oh, but THAT would be illegal...

Here is what I would like to do if I we’re President. Pick a border state; work with the governor (fed perks for their state helping out). “Bulge” into Mexico with Military force ten miles deep, ten miles wide (and it would be full time manned by a couple Marine battalions with special ops units stationed there in rotation to F up anything poking around a five mile perimeter (”sun’s out, guns out”). That is our new deportation depot - (tough shit Mexico, you do the same on your southern border). ANY law enforcement that catches an illegal anywhere in the country incarcerates. The illegal has ONE chance, ONE. Tell us where your family is and they can go home with you because like Obama, the President has a pen and a phone and there are NO MORE freebies for non-Americans; including anchor babies. Once gathered, transfer to a regional area and moved to the bulge.
Cut loose inside Mexico.
When Federal judges or the SCOTUS say that is illegal; remind them they made their ruling, now, lets see them enforce it.
Americans are TIRED of illegals. And those of you who have not had the luck to encounter an illegal’s incursions, give it time. They will be there soon enough under obama’s reign and they are arrogant as f()ck. Enjoy.

It’s just a test run for them to practice before mandating the ankle bracelets for tea Party members.

Notice anything odd?

Where are the GOP floor speeches, interviews or anything at all prior to this entire mess breaking open? Where are the warnings? Where are the bills to stop it? Where is ANYTHING from the GOP that shows they tried to stop this?

Because they knew. They cannot even try saying they did not know when the Dems advertized for ‘escorts in January.

These simple and relevant questions sent one GOPer into a screaming fit earlier. People need to ask them often.

Obama has had a lot of help.

Ankle bracelets?

Yeah, that’ll work — until they get 5 miles inside the border, cut the bracelets off, and disappear into the general populace.

Good plan — well, close enough for government work.

That will those bracelets and monitoring cost the taxpayers?
