Congress to tour children's immigration detention center, ahead of Obama's planned $2B request
Townhall.com ^ | July 5, 2014

Posted on 07/05/2014 5:11:29 PM PDT by Kaslin

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.

“ALLOWING”?

Well-stated, sir. (no I did not read the thread)

BUMP!

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?!

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.

From your link....

......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.”

Remember when the Useless Nations inspectors announced that they wanted to inspect Saddam Hussein weapons hiding places? It gave him plenty of time to delay them and move the weapons around so that the inspectors couldn't find anything.

The 0bama admin will do the same thing and the rats in the Senate, especially dingy Harry will help him. Count on it

I will be asking questions much like these of my Rep. senator this year. If I don’t get the right answer, I can’t stomach voting for the Democrat, but I won’t be voting for him. These RINO’s better wake up, NOW.

I’m talking to YOU, Mitch McConnell.

I don’t think that shipping people into a strange country and turning them into welfare dependent democrats qualifies as “charity.”

Since the illegal alien invaders youth are “in custody”...arrest them, seize any assets and deport them. Who gives a crap if they are “children”?

Here’s an idea: “No tour, no money, expel the illegal aliens.”

Here’s another idea: “Remove the illegal alien from the White House and imprison him in solitary confinement forever.”

Life is much easier when making adult decisions in accordance with the law.

We can put them on commercial ships to Central America cheaper and faster. There is no reason once detained the turnaround time for beginning their trip back south should be over 48 hours. 72-96 hours at sea should get them there and bypass Mexico altogether.

Second option? Charter cargo planes and set up netting seats like in military transports. The cost would be far less. 2 billion dollars would go a long ways in securing our border and ending the ability to enter the U.S. illegally.

You took da words right outta my mouth. They will be sanitized (literally) and staged for the nice congresscritters’ visit. Meanwhile, they are spreading parasites and diseases all over the country. Every minute they are here is an affront to U.S. citizens.

GROUNDS FOR IMMEDIATE DEPORTATION "Cheat sheets" have been found at the border, indicating illegals gave false information to US got officials. Laws which penalize giving US officials false information need to be enforced at once. This should be grounds for immediate expulsion.

An illegal alien "cheat sheet" found on illegal immigrants swarming the southern border into the United States. The cheat sheets have been found on numerous illegal aliens. Photo/TheBlaze.

=================================================

DO THIS NOW Demand your state and federal legislators add one question to welfare applications, EITC forms, healthcare forms, and all other subsidy forms (the list is endless).

THE QUESTION: How many us govt checks is the applicant now cashing? (subsidy requires names used on govt checks and amounts)

Important notation on bottom of forms: (A) Falsifying us govt applications is a crime. (B) Taking us govt money under false pretenses is punishable by 5 years or more incarceration.
