Lawmaker Denied Ft. Sill Entry After Reports of Displacing Soldiers to Accommodate Illegal Aliens
Judicial Watch ^ | July 2, 2014

Posted on 07/02/2014 2:12:30 PM PDT by jazusamo

Following reports that soldiers were booted from their barracks at an Oklahoma Army base to make room for a wave of illegal immigrant minors, the Obama administration is refusing to give the federal lawmaker who represents the state in Congress access to the facility.

Could it be that the administration is hiding something? The facility, Ft. Sill, is located in Lawton about 85 miles southwest of Oklahoma City. It serves as the United States Army and Marine Corps’ Field Artillery School and houses nearly 9,000 soldiers along with 62,621 family members, according to its official Army website. Last week Judicial Watch received reports that single enlisted soldiers were transferred from their barracks to tents in order to accommodate the flood of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) coming from Central America.

A Ft. Sill spokesman, Keith Pannell, told Judicial Watch that no soldier has been displaced because illegal immigrants are being housed in quarters that have been empty for months. “No soldiers have been moved out of any barracks to make room for UACs,” Pannell told JW. “Those barracks were being remodeled and the last time they were occupied was in April.” Pannell wouldn’t offer any further details on the arrangement, including the number illegal aliens staying at the base.

One of the state’s representatives in Congress, Jim Bridenstine, tried to visit but was denied access to the facility. In a statement issued this week Congressman Bridenstine’s office says Ft. Sill is housing up to 1,200 UACs, but the lawmaker couldn’t offer any more information because he wasn’t allowed inside. He says a fence covered with material that totally obscures any view has been erected around the barracks housing the UACs “There is no excuse for denying a Federal Representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held,” said Bridenstine, a former Navy pilot.

This crisis has been cloaked in secrecy from the start and the administration has withheld crucial information from the American public. For instance JW reported that a Texas military base is being covertly used as an illegal immigrant processing/holding location. A hangar at the El Paso facility, Ft. Bliss, is quietly being used by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to process, house and transition the influx of illegal immigrant minors that have arrived in the U.S. in recent weeks, a high-level inside source told JW. A Pentagon official demanded JW pull the story three days after it got published but backed off when we requested he put it in writing.

JW has also been in touch with Homeland Security sources on the scene who have confirmed that the barrage of illegal immigrant minors has created an out-of-control disaster with jam-packed holding centers, rampant diseases and sexually active teenagers at a Nogales facility. The president of the Tucson Border Patrol Union, Art Del Cueto, told JW that many of the migrants are not little kids, but rather 17-year-olds with possible ties to gang members. Yet, Del Cueto confirms, many will be released to relatives in the U.S.

The government is so overwhelmed that U.S. Border Patrol agents are being recruited to serve as babysitters , according to an internal document obtained by JW. This is the front-line federal agency responsible for preventing terrorists and weapons of mass destruction from entering the United States. Yet agents with “child care or juvenile teaching and/or counseling” are being recruited to feed, monitor, interact and provide security for the illegal alien minors until they are placed elsewhere.

As someone said on another thread, how ironic is it that buses with “Homeland Security” painted on their sides are dispersing illegal aliens throughout the country under the auspices of the Federal Government.

Looks like this was part of a Congressional....what we called investigatons made by Congressional offices when I was US Army JAG years ago

Military officers feared them, because high rank promotions are approved by Congress....being involved in a negative Congressional was a career killer

Surprised there were officers so willing to ruin careers....tells me those kids are in bad shape and Obama Admin is nose deep in a mess

Why do we continue to accept this kind of behavior? Oh wait, our house and senate are too cowardly to do their jobs and protect this country from any foreigner including the one in the White House. Just defund the fool already. At this rate we will be living under a full blown dictatorship by the end of his term, but maybe that is what the GOP E wants.

If this was a ‘plus’ for the administration, they would be hauling ABCNNBCBS reporters in by the plane loads to show them how great a job Obozo is doing.

By barring even a Congressman for seeing what is actually going on tells me they are in a hole of their own digging................

Sounds like another abuse of a so called secrecy agreement signed by the Army Officers and NonComs warning them if they disclosed any data, they could be arrested thrown a military prison.

Are soldiers assigned to a military installation considered to be constituents of the US Representative in whose district the installation is located? If so this could actually be an impeachable offense.Even if it's not the case this still stinks to high heaven!

...the Obama administration is refusing to give the federal lawmaker who represents the state in Congress access to the facility.

Rep. Jim Bridenstine is also a member of the House Armed Services Committee.

So that means that Obama is also hiding something from Congressional oversight.

I have a relative in the military in OK, and he and his family are just about as liberal as anyone, BIG 0bama supporters and campaigners. I am sort of hopeful that he is displaced from his housing so that the illegals can stay there. I can imagine the outrage of the parents....

Government to Doctors: Mention Illegal Aliens’ Diseases, Go to Jail (Hussein knows)
The New American ^ | 7/02/14 | Selwyn Duke
Posted on 7/2/2014

It appears that our government is working hard for the citizens.

Unfortunately, they’re not the citizens of the United States.

Fox News’ Todd Starnes reports shocking allegations that a government-contracted security force is threatening to arrest medical personnel at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, if they reveal information about the rampant disease among the illegal migrants at the facility. Nonetheless, several of these workers have decided to come forward, fearing the contagion risk posed to Americans. Starnes has kept their identities secret, as they could be subject to persecution.

The paralysis isn't just the HOR and US Senate. Anything having to do with the safety, health and well being of children gets the state involved. If it were a summer camp they'd be in there with questions about overcrowding and contagious disease. (Maybe that's what they should do. Use rules in place for camps) How about human trafficking along their roads? They have an obligation to those children.

NO ONE....US Senators, HOR reps or Governors has done anything to stop this outrage. It seems that by the time they're vetted for those offices, they're already disfunctional lap dogs. Look what happened when that mayor outside of San Diegl spoke up. The citizens got there and DID SOMETHING. Any leader who really wanted to could mobilize his or her concerned citizens.

Meanwhile, that Christian family is still in Sudan, that soldier is still unjustly in a Mexican jail, and ISIS members haven't been blown off the planet.

All of this inability to actually do anything can't end well.

It seems to be apparent that Obozo’s entire swarm of young illegals is starting to back fire big time.

It would be very interesting hear what the libs focus groups are saying about this fiasco.

The results are apparently so bad for the rats, the Obozo thugs are invoking gag rules on military and others involved with this outrage. Even Obama is saying the new illegals need to be sent back to their homes.
