Administration doing nothing about immigrant children, and that's the point
Cain TV.com ^ | June 27, 2014 | Herman Cain

Manufactured crisis.

Why would the Obama Administration allow huge numbers of unaccompanied immigrant children to not only stay in the country, but be shipped to various spots around the country, rather than putting them on buses or planes and sending them back to Central America? That's the question that was asked the other day by Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama (not to be confused with Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan), and he was told the law requires that the children be turned over to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Ha! The law requires all kinds of things that Obama simply decides not to do via executive order.

The White House has manufactured this crisis intentionally, as a distraction from the IRS, Iraq, the VA, Benghazi, the collapsing economy . . . you get the idea. It's a news story they're hoping can accrue more to their benefit. Maybe they can sell a narrative in which Republicans are mean, nasty jerks who want to toss out innocent kids, while the loving, caring Democrats want to feed, clothe and house them.

If you don't think that's how this White House operates, you haven't been paying attention. For them, all governing decisions come down to the managing of political narratives. Spinning storylines, influencing polls and winning the news cycle - these are the priorities behind every choice they make.

For all the reasons I laid out the other day, it's in everyone's best interests - especially the children themselves - to send them home. They should not be separated from their parents, and the people of the nations from which they come don't benefit when we enable their governments not to maintain policies that lead to liveable conditions.

The sheer numbers of children involved here make for a difficult challenge, and we shouldn't ignore that. And the fact that they are here without their parents or guardians does put a responsibility on us to make sure they're OK - that they're well fed, that they're not being abused, etc. But these basic humanitarian actions still need to be precursors to sending them home. The administration is not doing that simply because the political strategists in the White House think it's more in their best interests to keep them here. That's what drives everything they do, and in this case you're toying with the lives of young people who belong in their homes with their families.

This is a manufacturered crisis if there ever was one, and that needs to stop immediately.

It’s all about power and politics and painting other people as “the bad guys”.

Obama and Jarrett certainly have no interest in governing the country or building a better future for the next generation. They simply ask themselves: “How can we position ourselves for next month?”

And that’s the “kind” assessment. In truth, I think they actively try to do whatever will hurt us the most, because they hate western civilization and want to see it come crashing down.

I heard a liberal commentator say that we are being inhumane by keeping them in these camps. These camps were likened to a POW camp. But the liberals also don’t want them sent home. Exactly what liberals want done about this is a mystery.

NY TIMES
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/11/us/poverty-and-violence-push-new-wave-of-migrants-toward-us.html?_r=0
The new migrants head for South Texas because it is the shortest distance from Central America. Many young people ride across Mexico on top of freight trains, jumping off in Reynosa.

The Rio Grande twists and winds, and those who make it across can quickly hide in sugar cane fields and orchards. In many places it is a short sprint to shopping malls and suburban streets where smugglers pick up migrants to continue north.

The migrants are no longer primarily Mexican laborers. Instead they are Central Americans, including many families with small children and youngsters without their parents, who risk a danger-filled journey across Mexico. Driven out by deepening poverty but also by rampant gang violence, increasing numbers of migrants caught here seek asylum, setting off lengthy legal procedures to determine whether they qualify.

****THE KEY HERE IS THEY CLAIM ASYLUM due to phonied up claims of violence from gangs etc. in Guatemala, Honduras etc. They have BS scripts they memorize.
They are let in due to the asylum claim and given a court date to appear that is four years in the future because the immigration courts are very very backed up. You can guess the rest

What Obama and the puppet masters are doing is tantamount to using candy to entice children to cross a busy highway.
In legal term it is called an "Attractive Nuisance"
Obama and his "Ilk" DO NOT CARE, how many Children die and or are mutilated on their journey to America. They only want to "over whelm the system" Ala Cloward and Piven.
Or COWARD and PISSEL!

Cloward-Piven strategy applied with a vengeance - find some social welfare program, then overwhelm it with a massive influx of new applicants, to the degree it cannot possibly cope with the demand.

And the “social welfare” plan was not even a legally established one - the Current Regime simply made a shout-out to the “oppressed” persons in other lands, “Lunch time! Come and get it!”, without a shred of authority from Congress or anybody - just “a phone and a pen”.

There is a large and established body of law that is SUPPOSED to be governing this territory once known as “the United States of America”, but apparently that has all become dead-letter - does that also mean that any other acts of lawlessness shall go unpunished as well?

The Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut should have made sure that all the guns got confiscated first. But since that necessary step was deferred or neglected altogether, in the current state on suspension of all law, it pretty much falls into the hands of vigilantes to keep what peace and order may still be maintained. Apparently the forces of the powers of governance are not at all in favor of doing so, reaching out and striking in municipalities large and small, arbitrarily demanding that services be supplied without recompense, and rolling into town with the equivalent of SWAT teams to assure compliance.

New rules - who are the REAL terrorists?

This planned and designed bit of catastrophe is but one element of the multi-faceted socio-political chaos prescribed by Cloward-Piven for bringing down (i.e., Fundamentally Transforming) America

If we wanted them deported, we’d have dumped them at their embassies’ doors and washed our hands of them. Of course, we wouldn’t have flown/shipped/etc. them over here in the first place but that was done with our tax dollars by the Boy King.

I was in the grocery store last week when two guys with a baby (sigh) were discussing why we’d brought them across the border (at least they weren’t buying the story line) when they aren’t old enough to vote. I butted in telling them the voting age parents would soon follow. They agreed.

There is far more to this flood of illegal aliens than just creating a distraction from other scandals. The Progressives are determined to hang on to power even if they have to import millions of new government-dependent Democrat voters to do it. In the long run the deliberate destruction of our Southern border will help usher in America’s status as a third-rate backwater under a global government.

isn’t it time to stop paying bribe money? The only thing it’s accomplishing, apparently, is promoting militarization of corrupt administrations against their own citizens:

Foreign aid (for education, gang, drug and poverty erradication)

Guatamala: GDP: 50 billion. Population: 15 million
USAID (2014): 74million
Prior expenditures $$: 2009: 38M, 2010: 49M, 2011: 57M, 2012: 65M, 2013: 95M

El Salvador: GDP: 24 billion Population: 5 million
USAID (2014): 42million
Prior expenditures $$: 2009: 30M, 2010: 35M, 2011: 42M, 2012: 54M, 2013: 45M

Mexico: GDP 1Trillion Population: 121M

Prior expenditures $$: 2009: 24M, 2010: 44M, 2011: 67M, 2012: 50M, 2013: 50M

doing nothing is nullifying existing law by creating an equal and opposite law.

alternatively, they are just radically incompetent at their job and should be removed NOW

The 0bama regime is working a coup against the American people. Why aren’t our borders secure? Treason. Why do they oppose photo ID to vote? Treason. Why do they try to circumvent Constitutional limits on their power? Treason. Why do they seek to undermine the inherent rights of all Americans, the very rights so plainly recognized in the Bill of Rights? Treason everywhere you look with these people.

Poverty and gang violence is not new. It has not increased in the proportion that we now have “asylum seekers.” This is clearly orchestrated. It reminds me of the crisis caused by Enron. All of a sudden there wasn’t enough electricity for California! Prices skyrocketed. The governor lost his job. People lost their homes and businesses because tgey could not pay the rent and the power bill too. No one could figure out why at the height of the dot.com boom, there was plenty of electricity, but a year later there was not. Of course we know now that there was conspiracy and manipulation. The truth will eventually out about what is going on here, but it will be too late.

I don’t think this manufactured crisis was solely done as a mere a distraction from all Obama’s other disasters. I think there was a purpose. They intended to use the Cloward-Piven-ed, overwhelmed borders caused by these invaders to spur House republicans to act on immigration.

In other words the administration could say, “If you do-nothing republicans don’t enact immigration reform soon...Oh the children! Oh the humanity!” Cantor’s defeat, a situation which may in part be due to this manufactured crisis situation, put a freeze on those hopes. The over reach by the GOPe in Mississippi shows just how desperate they were to reverse the situation. Hopefully, that Senate race has left such a horrible stench that the House may be too paralyzed to act on immigration for a very long time.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think I am seeing a pattern here.

Yoofs Heading north by train. This is recent photo.

With the full knowledge and assistance of Mexico. Tax their remittances (all of Latin America) and maybe charge a fee for crossing the Mexican border.
