Skip to comments.Congress to tour children's immigration detention center, ahead of Obama's planned $2B request

The Department of Health and Human Services is allowing members of Congress to visit a Texas immigration detention center amid growing concerns about access to such facilities housing the recent surge of children who have illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border.
The tour is scheduled to take place Tuesday morning. The site will be a temporary shelter at the Joint Base San Antonio Lackland, according to The Blaze news website.
Tens of thousands of young people -- including an estimated 50,000 children -- have illegally crossed the border in recent months, sent by their parents to escape violence in Central America and connect with relatives in the United States.
The long-simmering issue about what the U.S. should do with an estimated 11.5 million people now living here illegally and the need to tighten border security has emerged as a key 2014 election issue. The surge of illegals also resulted this week in a tense standoff in Southern California in which residents of the city of Murrieta turned back buses carrying an overflow of illegal border-crossers.

They should not be giving Obama $2 billion more dollars, we all know he isn’t going to actually deport anyone
Any money given should be taken from the IRS allotment

Willing dupes or co-conspirators? CONgre$$

Well-stated, sir. (no I did not read the thread)
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers
They also shouldn’t have given notice when they’d show up to inspect. The areas they’re allowed to see will be deceptively clean since they were tipped off. And what’s this “allowed” BS anyhow? Some low level bureaucrat will ALLOW congress to inspect? What’s wrong with THIS picture?!
whats this “violence” in Central America? Are they running from violence committed by their own government or just general street crime?
Defund the White House and the Executive branch until the border is closed to all but lawfully documented persons to enter the USA at established entry points. Patrol the rest of the border with drones and armed military helos with orders to warn trespassers via loudspeaker not to enter upon threat of being fired upon.
How hard can that be?
I really don’t give a crap what kind of conditions these illegals are held in. Compared to their craphole countries it probably seems like the Ritz. Molly coddle much? They shouldn’t be housed at all but sent home.

......And House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is scheduled Saturday to go to the South Texas Detention Center, in Pearsall.
However, Oklahoma GOP Rep. Jim Bridenstine said Wednesday that he was recently denied access to Fort Sill, one of three U.S. facilities housing the unaccompanied children, and was told the soonest he could get in was July 21.
Any member of Congress should have the legal authority to visit a federal youth detention facility without waiting three weeks,” he said. What are they trying to hide? As a Navy pilot, I have been involved in operations countering illicit human trafficking. I would like to know to whom these children are being released.”
The 0bama admin will do the same thing and the rats in the Senate, especially dingy Harry will help him. Count on it
“is allowing members...”
Well, isn’t that mighty whitey of them.
