Obama won't visit detention facilities holding thousands of illegal immigrant children
DailyMail ^ | July 3, 2014 | Francesca Chambers

Posted on 07/03/2014 8:39:58 PM PDT by Tennessee Nana

President Barack Obama is traveling to Texas next week

SNIP

He won't visit the border to see any of the captured Central American children who are piling up in detention facilities, however

The White House says he doesn't need to make a pit stop at the border because he's 'well aware' of the situation

SNIP

he will not visit detention facilities at the border housing thousands of illegal immigrant children, the White House said today.

Press Secretary John Earnest said the president is 'well aware' of the humanitarian crisis at the border and doesn't need to see it first-hand during his trip to the Lonestar State.

'The president has a very good sense of what's happening at the border,' Earnest said ...'He's getting regular updates from his officials who've traveled to that region. They're focused on solving this problem.'

'And what the president wants is ... regular reports about what they're seeing on the border, and how resources that are being devoted to processing these--those who have appeared at the border, are being used to effectively administrate justice.

SNIP

Texas Governor Rick Perry invited the president to come visit the border in person during an appearance on Fox and Friends that morning.

'If he doesn’t come to the border, I think it’s a real reflection of his lack of concern of what’s really going on there,' Perry said.

'If the President of the United States is really serious about securing that border, we can show him how to do that,'

SNIP

'But I haven’t even had a phone call from this president.'

On Wednesday Earnest said Obama still had no plans to visit the border but he 'wouldn’t rule it out until the day of.'

'Our focus at this point is to plan to do something else,' he said.

Obama doesn’t want to get scabbies, lice, whooping cough, TB, measles, etc.

Those illnesses and diseases are reserved for us plebes.

Rick Perry knows how to play a narcissist like a fiddle. He said earlier in the week that it would really be bad form for Obama not to visit the border...guaranteeing that Obama wouldn’t do it.

RE: “Obama won't visit detention facilities holding thousands of illegal immigrant children,”

OH Come on now,
He has a DNC fund-raising schedule that takes priority over everything but golf games,
But don't suggest that this isn't tearing this up inside, inside he is weaping over this

Just like they were his own children. If he had hispanic children....

But remember Hitler didn’t have to ..

as Joseph Goebbels said at the time

‘He’s getting regular updates from his officials who’ve traveled to that region. They’re focused on solving this problem.’

‘And what Der Fuhrer wants is ... regular reports about what they’re seeing in the camps, and how resources that are being devoted to processing these—those who have been sent to the camps, are being used to effectthe final solution.”

On local news tonight (CBS affil.) at 6 we learned that Bryan, TX might be one of the the recipients for a couple hundred of these “undocumented immigrants.” They showed a vacant building that is “owned by the federal government,” and was mentioned as a possible place of residence to these “undocumented immigrants” during this “immigration crisis.” These supposedly were the words in a letter to the city of Bryan from the federal government. The newscaster said that the mayor had appealed to the governor to protest this and something was said about how this would burden the city greatly in the schools.

At 8 p.m. tonight, I got on the tv news website to make a comment regarding their use of the words “undocumented immigrants” instead of illegal aliens (and some other things), not one trace of the news item was there.
Wonder what happened.

Of course Obama won’t be visiting them, due to diseases.

He could give them AIDS.

If he visit a golf course in Texas, it will need a high fence and armed guards to keep the “Texas Welcoming Committee” at least a half mile away and out of earshot.

Oh, wait... He says high fences and armed guards aren’t going to keep people out.

..."Obama won't visit detention facilities holding thousands of illegal immigrant children..."

..... PREDICTION .... Watch for this verbage of this situation to be magically transformed from the term"Illegal Immigrant or Migrant Children" to the term "Young Refugees" in a successful effort to demonize any verbage against this massive influx of Future Democrat voters.

.... Just think about it ... To even think of sending these poor Child refugees back to their horrid meat grinding countries of origins will be a certain death sentence for these poor innocent defenseless children.

.... In short .... The Republicans and the Tea Party will be portrayed as wanting to literally ... Kill the Children .... and Send them to their DEATH ..... Heck ..... Do the Republicans and Tea Party even have even a tiny loving compassionate bone in their collective evil bodies?

.....Good luck on trying to defend against that one folks.

I can’t even imagine the horror and boredom, emotional stress and finally damage being done to these children housed in these concentration camps.

Obama is a sick man to encourage this crisis in the course
of a political plan.

Well, there aren’t any 5 star golf courses near these facilities.

Just middle class pitch and putts like they have in Murrietta.

A lot of them will likely suffer mental and emotional scars from being separated from parents, herded across the border and warehoused in these facilities. We’ll be on the hook for treating them for life for various mental disorders as a result.

Just the kind of individual we need to make our country strong!/sarc

Artesia, New Mexico seems to be on the list to......it’s either happened, the buses have arrived or on their way.
We were in that area two years ago........lovely old town that had seen better days, but still trying to hold on to its dignity, imo.......beautiful statues of pioneers......
A few stores of long standing......esp a large Western store ......

The town was struggling......Obama put a stake in it!.......He’s cold as ice!

This is 0bama’s hurricane Katrina, only difference is that 0bama lit this fire without planning and organizing to contain the human tradgedy.

If 0bama will not go down for some face time, and make the detention facilities all about him, this turned out to be a political loser.

0bama will not even tweet out a photo of himself on the phone or reading reports, starring at a monitor

Won’t visit the refugee camps? Probably scared stiff he’ll catch a contagious disease, maybe bring lice and scabies home to the WH fam.

But he could care less if disease and contagion are spread to American communities and infects Americans.

We have to face the fact that this ding-a-ling in the WH is deranged........no president in their right mind would ignore US laws being broken, and allow US borders violated w/ unwashed hordes, and knowingly let into the US contagion, vermin and disease.......all of it to be financed, fed, clothed and housed by US taxpayers.

All of these illegals, holed up at military bases, should be trained as golf caddies, and assigned to all Military bases that have a golf course.

That way, we can sell Golf Cart One, and Barry can get some exercise walking the course, and the disease ridden illegal can carry his clubs

I thought it possible if there was a nearby golf course groomed by illegals. But, no such luck. Fake smile, raise money, move on.
