Cruz: Immigrant Children Were Ordered By Human Traffickers To Cut Off Fingers, Ears Of Other Kids
CBS News Local ^ | June 23, 2014

Posted on 06/23/2014 3:10:19 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

At Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott emerged from a tour calling the situation a “humanitarian crisis” — the same way President Barack Obama has described more than 52,000 children who’ve entered the country illegally in recent months.

“We are witnessing a humanitarian crisis unfolding that is the direct consequence of President Obama’s lawlessness,” Cruz said. “We just toured this Air Force facility, where up to 1,200 children are being cared for… but they have come through harrowing circumstances.” Cruz said his experience at the temporary shelter was “heartbreaking.”

Cruz and Abbott say they were told stories of children being ordered by human traffickers to cut off fingers and ears of other kids as a way of extorting money.

The Regime that made tacit common cause with M.E. terror groups and Mexican Narco-kingpins:

Would they *also* strike secret bargains with human trafficking organizations..?

Of course, yes.

Opportunistic Hollywood already has the film rights.....the story centers on a 3-year old toddler who made it across the border alone, through a thousand miles of Central American jungles and drug cartel territory.

HAPPY HOLLYWOOD ENDING------the 3-year old grows up and meets his mother for the first time. Mamsita had also violated the US border and got a job flipping hamburgers for $7.50 an hour. She managed to buy a $300,000 home and had $200,000 in the bank......but she never forgot her little boy---she claimed him every year on her EITC refunds.

This is about the most diabolical thing I have heard, and the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of Obummer with his evil scheme's just to get more voters.

The southern invasion of young, illiterate, poor, criminal, and diseased peasants continues while the federal government dithers. This follows the Feds taking Arizona to court to make sure the state has no role in border security.

==================================================

Mexico is facilitating the insurgency.....the stench of Third World collusion and conspiracy pollutes our borders. “Child migration” propaganda is bull-crap....this is corrupt greedy Central American govt officials and desperate US politicians exchanging Dummycrat votes for a raft of US govt freebies.

==============================================

BACKSTORY Stupid Dummyrcats lock-stepped behind Obama to foist radical healthcare on Americans. Now the pols are scared stiff of losing. ....... and are extorting Americans to subsidize the vote-buying scheme......throwing hordes of parasitic illegals onto the backs of American taxpayers.

========================================================

POINTS TO PONDER----BILLIONS OF US TAX DOLLARS SUBSIDIZE CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS Dominican Republic travel brochures recount how the cunning Dominican Republic govt survives on billions of our tax dollars which its illegal residents residing here send back home---all of them riding the US gravy train.

The do-nothing Caribbean Third World satrap is teeming with poverty. The do-nothing Dominican govt provides no social safety nets for needy citizenry. The connivers work the US system---quietly and secretly lying-in-wait---to maximize its iron grip on America's power centers.

====================================================

Better add this in, too: A Miami paper reported that cargo flights carried millions of US greenbacks in suitcases, port cargo containers, and money bags, from Mexico to Texas, and then to Miami Intl Airport, on a routine schedule.

From there, authorities say, the money was laundered by two Mexican businessmen through a Miami-Dade check-cashing company that used the dollars to cash the payroll checks of undocumented workers at local supermarkets. It was all part of a Mexican-Miami bulk-cash network that federal agents say may be funded by drug profits south of the US border.

The culprits--Martin Diaz and Enrique Guerra--arrested earlier this month, appeared before a federal magistrate on charges of conspiring to launder US dollars for the purpose of “harboring illegal aliens’’ in this country. (Excerpt) Read more at miamiherald.com ...

=============================================

THE NAME OF THE GAME Greedy Central American govts lie in wait to get their filthy hands on our hard-earned tax dollars w/ "instant pressure groups" swarming over the order. Wire-transfers start as soon as the hordes hop the gravy train

==========================================

US taxpayers handout billions in foreign aid to these do-nothing Third World hellholes-- specifically earmarked to subsidize their poverty populations.

Time to cut off US aid to these corrupt, do-nothing governments. US aid should be suspended until the countries tell us where the aid money is going......and demand they put out appropriate messaging to counter the ads said to be fueling the horrendous surge at the border from Central America.

NOTE WELL: US Aid figures do not include military aid and aid from other US agencies: El Salvador: $280.4M Honduras: $680M Dominican Republic: $223.7M Mexico: $958.2M Guatemala: $391.8M

SOURCE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_foreign_aid_received

=============================================

This report shows US aid $’s for the past few years (see page 9 (US Assistance) and pages 25-30 show various other agencies providing aid (DOD, etc.) (needs more research)

LINK http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/row/R42582.pdf

=========================================

Most Americans are fed-up---and want these types sent back from whence they came....but the buzz is Central American govts are refusing to take them back.

=====================================================

THE FOREIGN AID MODUS OPERANDI NES CLIP---Former Guatemala Prez used US banks to launder millions (swindler was elected to "redistribute" the nation's wealth) An ex-president of Guatemala faced charges in NY that he used US banks to launder millions looted from his impoverished nation. Alfonso Portillo took office in 2000 pledging to redistribute Guatemala’s wealth.

Portillo, 61, allegedly ran scams to drain the impoverished country's coffers. The feds say Portillo embezzled about $2.5M provided by the Taiwanese embassy....$1.5 million was earmarked for “Libraries for Peace”....books for school kids.

Portillo personally endorsed three, $500,000 checks issued against an account at the Intl Bank of China in Manhattan, then deposited the cash in the Miami bank account of a Guatemalan bank controlled by “a close associate and political supporter” .....the money was funneled to bank accounts in Paris in the names of Portillo’s ex-wife and daughter.

Portillo swindled nearly $4M defense funds ...and plundered the national bank run by his alleged co-conspirator through overdrafts financed by public reserves -- stolen money paid for expensive watches and cars, for himself and his associates, according to the indictment. (Source: NY POST news report 5/28/13.)

Obama factotum.....the nauseatingly obsequious DHS Secy Jeh Johnson......told reporters that the federal government would do what was in the “best interest” of unaccompanied alien children swarming across the border.

Bull hockey.....how about our tax-paid public servants do something in "our" best interests for a change?

=============================================

The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers asserted: "This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes."

==============================================

Vote crazed Democrats---desperate over losing seats in 2014---are conniving to get taxpayers to buy them these illegal votes----the Dummycrats are requesting $2 billion tax dollars (for starters) to subsidize the swarm at the border.

Dummycrats are using the "Clinton vote-trading formula---let so may illegals in--get so many votes."

Joe Biden has been thoroughly briefed by the DNC: Speaking earlier to the National Association of Manufacturers, Biden called for a "constant, unrelenting stream' of new immigrants — not dribbling (but) significant flows," The Hill reported....

TRANSLATION FROM DUMMYCRAP BAFFLE-GAB: "let 'em pour in to get the votes we need---and extort taxpayers to subsidize the vote-getting scheme."

==============================================

ALIPAC.COM---- Congress toll-free numbers:

Flood the Congress w/ Phone calls--"we will not subsidize Democrat vote-buying schemes. No tax dollars for illegals."

1-800-828-0498 1-800-459-1887 1-800-614-2803 1-866-340-9281 1-866-338-1015 1-866-220-0044

==========================================================

How did young children w/out food or water or adult
supervision travel thousands of miles through treacherous
jungles and drug cartel territory?

How did they know the way to the US border?

Of course, they had plenty of help for the trek---
probably financed w/ our tax dollars---thanks to Jeh Johnson
and Team Obama suckups.

and Border Protection Nogales Placement Center.

We need to shut down the border and this would be averted or at least highly curtailed. Shut it down for humanitarian reasons.

Very smart
‘Shut it down for humanitarian reasons.”
We should use that exact reason,
Dems are using it as a way to justify us rolling out the red carpet and sinking us into more debt PLUS the diseases that are coming it

Good idea’
For humanitarian sake we must seal our border

I don’t either
but we see the campaign, that it is humanitarian
and no GOP politician can apeak out against it
BUT if the GOPPol could make the point that it is MORE humanitarian for all of us including OUR children
then that might work

Those are young Central Americans, probably many with quite a lot of Native in their family genes and socialization. Given the violence and Stone Age cannibalism heritage of their history, they give “going native’ a whole new meaning. Consider the acts being perpetrated in Mexico on a daily basis.

There is also the sad fact that Central America was heavily influenced by Spain. And, also unfortunately, Spain finally escaped Muslim slave state status the same year Columbus set sail for the New World.

Much of the Spanish influence was impacted by their 700 years as Muslim dhimmi’s.

Culture is crucial - and the culture of Central/South America is deeply incompatible with America’s culture.

We allow such invasions at the peril of our nation.

I hope somebody puts this on youtube. Maybe if people put up information about what is going on at the border, it can start a movement. I hope people take pictures of what is going on whether it is at the border or at any of the places illegals are being dropped off. The Feds can tell the Border Patrol what to do but they cannot tell the American public what they can and cannot do.

Culture isn’t just a coat of paint, it goes much deeper than that. People are socialized at their earliest years and they continue the same type of socialization to their own children.
