Kerry warns U.S. will deport undocumented Central American children

(Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday that Washington would work with Central American nations to address the root causes of an immigration crisis, but he kept up the Obama administration's tough message that undocumented children would be deported.

"We obviously understand people who want to do better, and who look for a better life," he said at a meeting with leaders from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, the countries from which tens of thousands of children have fled to the United States in recent months.

"But at the same time, there are rules of law, and there is a process and there is false information that is being spread about benefits that might be available to these young people who are looking for that better life," he said.

Kerry was in Panama for the inauguration of the country's new president, Juan Carlos Varela, but he combined the trip with meetings to address a crisis that is straining U.S. resources and roiling partisan tensions in Washington over immigration.

Kerry met with El Salvadoran President Salvador Sanchez Ceren and Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez did not attend, sending Foreign Minister Mireya Aguero Trejo de Corrales in his place.

President Barack Obama said on Monday he was sending Kerry to Central America to address the problem, in a speech pledging to act on his own to revamp the U.S. immigration system and protect the border after hopes of convincing congressional Republicans to pass broad reform legislation officially died.

Kerry's visit to the region followed one by Vice President Joe Biden less than two weeks ago as Washington grapples with an issue that is straining its resources and complicating its relationship with Mexico and Central American allies.

Should’ve said that up front instead of inviting them here with dreams of amnesty. Their dreams are now nightmares.

You really think Obama will send them back? Baloney. He’s got that pen. They’re already looking at homes for them here in Upstate NY.

Even the Mexican Immigration organizations are being very silent on this.

Now it all makes sense. That’s what they needed all those size 5X and 6X tidy whities for. To sling shot the “unaccompanied minors” back across the border.

I’m betting that 95% are Mexicans and that Pablo texted Hernando “Get the kids on the road. I’ll watch for them at the border and let you know where they are”.

If Kerry says it, that means it won’t happen.

What WILL happen is that once the kids are here, it will be the “right thing to do” to bring their entire families here.

Multiply the number of kids by at least 10.

Say one thing, do another. They know the “broken” immigration system will work for them. If they issue “require to appear” notices to the UAC, they know 90-95% won’t appear. They will be in the wind. Mission accomplished.

“undocumented children”
Of course they’re “undocumented”. They rode up here on top of a train and just walked across the border.
Kerry’s like all democrats: a Pavlov’s dog. Ring that “alien/immigrant” bell and they’ve got to throw in the word “undocumented”.
The word was coined to describe the terribly unfortunate situation, “Isn’t it aweful! All that stands between these fine people bring family values and love to us is a lousy piece of paper. All we would have to do is ... give them that little piece of paper!”
It sounds like something Nanzi `Miss Lube Rack’ Peelousy made up.

The nightmares are exactly what Obama wants to create as part of his “hope and change” program.

Ask yourself if he has done ANYTHING that is useful, profitable or advantageous for the country?

ANYTHING?

The Children’s Crusade will be moved to Red and Swing states for “processing.”
There they will be re-united with their (extended) families. (If you oppose this, you obviously hate children...)
When Congress (or an activist Federal Court) gives them and a “path to citizenship” those states will suddenly and permanently turn “Blue.”

That is the plan as I see it.

Same strategy as always. Cloward-Piven. Overwhelm the system.

Nobody could have predicted that Ubama would engage in child/human trafficking to get his way. It shows you what an off-the-charts sociopath/psychopath he is, in case there was any doubt.

My opinion:

The 0bama administration put the word out that amnesty was just around the corner in these countries. These countries, wanting freebies and a means to get their hooks into the pockets of the American taxpayer, sent their children to our country. Why the children? To tug at the heartstrings of the American people and to use those kids as an anchor for chain migration. After all, “we don’t want to break up families”, now, do we? *smh*

So, all these children get sent here, on the hope that the compassion of the American people would create such an outcry of “let them stay” then the parents would use their children to get to immigrate here. Also, these kids are nothing more to this wicked president than a bludgeon to beat over the head of Republicans to get amnesty passed. The GOPe will trip all over themselves to look “compassionate”, thus solidifying the view that they are rightly called “The Stupid Party”. This is a cynical, disgusting attempt to destroy this country even further.

That this liar is making these claims that these children will be deported should tell everyone that this is not going to happen.

I finally realized why all of this seems so familiar. During WWII we had Germans and Japanese invading both the east and west coasts.

Supposing they arrived here in the thousands or hundreds of thousands in order to take over this country. We would have thought nothing about killing every one of them in order to protect this country.

I do NOT suggest that that’s what we should do now.

However, taking over this country is EXACTLY what they are trying to do, with the blessings of our President.

They must all be returned to their own countries and our borders SECURED against their return. It’s less expensive to hire more border control than to support the enemy.

What a brilliant ploy it was to send children and then to make us feel guilty about how they are treated. WE ARE FOOLS to fall for it.
