Pelosi visits border facility, says immigration reform unlikely
Los Angeles Times ^ | June 28, 2014 | MAYA SRIKRISHNAN

Posted on 06/28/2014 5:37:01 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) said she isn't hopeful that immigration reform will pass after she visited a Border Patrol facility in Brownsville, Texas, on Saturday.

“The humanitarian crisis unfolding across our nation’s southern border demands Congress come together and find thoughtful, compassionate and bipartisan solutions,” Pelosi said at a televised news conference after the tour. “We must also work to address the root causes of the problem.”

Pelosi said the U.S. needs to turn this crisis into an "opportunity to show who we are as Americans."

“The fact is these are children, children and families,” Pelosi said. “We have a moral responsibility to address this in a dignified way."

I can’t find where Pelosi and her husband took this opportunity to donate at least half of their millions to these “kiddie” invaders. She probably feels so bad for their plight that she just forgot.

this is f@cking treason. they are not upgolding their oaths to protect and defend this country. north america is a continent with several sovereign countries, they are not part of the united states.

we’have to recognize their sovereignty, but they get to destroy ours?

this is treason. impeachable and removable and jail-able’offenses. these ‘people’are destroying the country on purpose. their goal is to morph a north american union nwo-bs entity into existence.

The responsibility lies with the parents who gave the kids up to get a foot in our door, you fright-faced waxwork.

Immigration reform? Why bother? You're letting the whole world in right now!

She and the other elitist limousine lib commie wannabes want the American taxpayers to foot the bill. Where’s Gates? Where’s Bloomberg? Where’s the Zucker? (The internet guy. Can’t remember if he’s a berg or a mann). Where’s Soros? Where are the union thugs? Where’s the SEIU? They are the ones who should be footing the bill for this fiasco. Not the American taxpayers.

“The humanitarian crisis unfolding . . .”

I'm tired of these manufactured crises. We had a fake financial crisis for which the cure (Stimulus, TARP) was far worse than the disease, an economic crisis for which the cure was massive federal spending that sucked all the capital out of the private sector, a climate crisis for which the cure is higher taxes plus big government regulations on every aspect of our lives, a Ukrainian crisis after Obama argued that worrying about Russia was so 20th century, a Syrian crisis for which the cure was training ISIS terrorists, and now a manufactured immigration crisis for which the proposed cure (for illegal immigrants that Obama's lawless policies attracted) is to recruit an even larger flood of illegals.

these are children being used by an array of depraved adults; kids don’t walk across the border on their own

The most “dignified” thing I think we could do is send them home to work their problems out with their own governments. We’ve already got enough problems of our own to deal with here.

It’s bad enough that we’re raising the children of our own “underclass”. I don’t have any `moral responsibility’ to pay to raise someone else’s kid, regardless of where s/he comes from. FUNP!

Pelosi is EVIL. She is every bit as evil as OBAMA. They can both go to hell. And she is about as American as the leftist Potus who hates us, we who really are American.

One of the reasons Pelosi pulled back from immigration reform is she is no dummy. As a seasoned politician, she knows the immigration scheme of the Obama admin just backfired. GOP should find out who is sponsoring all these kids to come. Can’t cross 1800 miles of Mexico without orgnaization and logistics, which all costs money, like American money??!! All these kids arrived knowing what legal statements to give. Only lawyers can provide such advice. That is not given for free. Who is paying these lawyers. Money, money, money is involve. Need to figure who is providing the funding. Find it and expose it. If GOP was bold, sue them for the costs incurred on US taxpayers. It is one thing a parent brought the child into the US decades ago, but what we have on the border is a Latin American child dump. Even some of my pro immigration reform friends are starting to have second thoughts. If GOP is smart, say nothing and let the crisis grow. Security and deportation is the only terms we can accept. If the Dems balk, the camps will pile up till something will happen.
I tell you what I am sick of. I am only a C average college grad, and I can figure out some good plans of action, yet all these Havard, Yale, Princeton types that are in the GOP haven’t even advanced anything. All that expensive education and staff salary, and not one of these expensive bright GOP turks even came up with anything to counter the Obama immigration scheme. The only thing they are smart at is coming up with plans on crushing conservatives and Tea Party.

I’m really hoping that Pelosi gets a very debilitating disease from being at the border with all those illegals and is put totally out of commission, so she can’t keep destroying America in her present position.

Since they are coming in by the train loads, with government at the wheel and escorting them, why bother with immigration reform?

All they are going to do is make them all legal until the next 30 million enter illegally. They call this “immigration reform”...lol

Soon they’ll have a country full of low wage workers, who don’t complain, who don’t question government, are easily led and appeased by minimum handouts and wages.

Much less concern and easily controllable for the elite ruling class.

So there ya have it.

All the illegals crossing at the border should be sent to Nancy’s district.

She wants them. I say she should have them.

“We must also work to address the root causes of the problem.”

And that would be politicians and government officials. So when is she going to resign?

The only thing broken about our immigration system as far as border control goes is the lack of will by a long series of presidents, senators and congressmen (and congress-witches) to enforce the laws designed to protect the nation and citizens from this slow motion invasion across the Mexican border.
