Posted on 07/06/2014 9:16:14 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
Navy pilot, combat veteran, and Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine, who sits on the House Armed Services committee, was denied entry to the Health and Human Services facility housing over 1,000 unaccompanied alien children at the Fort Sill military base in Oklahoma. Appearing in an interview on Breitbart News Saturday with Editor in Chief of Breitbart News and host of the show Alex Marlow, Bridenstine recounted his experience on Wednesday when he visited the base to discuss military topics with the commanding general.
Afterward, the Congressman drove over to the area at the base where illegal alien detainees were being held. Immediately, he was thwarted from entering the holding area because of a surrounding, newly-built chain link fence blocking off the area. Other than the fence, Bridenstine said that the housing looked like a typical apartment complex, often seen on military bases. Marlow considered the incident ironic, saying I thought America wasnt good at building fences. The Congressman replied that, for this administration, fences dont work on our southern border, but they work on a military base.
The Congressman then drove around the fenced-off area, where unaccompanied illegal immigrant children are being held, looking for a security guard station or check in point. After driving around the barracks a couple of times, Bridenstine discovered that there were no access points, all the gates were locked down tight, and there was no security person visible." Finally, Bridenstine saw someone peering through a crack in the fence, so he walked over and introduced himself. Im United States Congressman Jim Bridenstine; Im on the Armed Services committee; I represent the first district of Oklahoma, and I would very much like to speak to the person who runs this facility.

He goes on to say:
"Here is the president asking for $2 billion to expand the detainee program, and he won't even let a member of congress view the facilities."
The reason for the coverup, Bridenstine suspects, is that the children are carrying diseases and that some of the diseases could go epidemical. They dont want you to see the human suffering that has gone on because the law has been broken, he added.
The $2 billion is not for border security
the crisis that is ensuing is a direct result of failed federal policy. The policies are not deterring human trafficking; they are causing human trafficking.
In our current crisis, government is not the solution; Government is the problem.
Obama, the libs and rino’s all conspiring against us.
Heard this morning that Obama Administration issued 10,000 work permits and distributed them in Guatemala in just one month......along with advertising for work in the USA.
Additional information stated....”this influx could not happen without Mexico being compliant”.
They aren’t “causing” it. They are perpetrating it.
He should have returned the next day and requested the Base Commander furnish him an armed escort to gain entrance.
Isn’t this akin to”White Slavery”?????????????
Jim Bridenstine should go get some media cameras and local health and law enforcement personnel and go back and knock on the door and refuse to leave until they let him in.
Maybe the Base Commander was taking orders from the Obungler. Do we know for sure?
I dunno. But, I heard Birdenstein they should hold hearings about it. As if....
Ah yes, the old hearings trick again.
Ask Germans how those nothing-to-see-here ‘processing’ centers worked out for them.
This guy is a combat veteran? As such, and as a member of congress, he should have said, “YOU’RE keeping ME out?! Like HELL you are!” and then pushed his way in.
The House controls the purse strings. Threaten to cut off funding for Fort Sill unless they open the holding facilities.
Add human trafficker of children to the list of Obama’s crimes. The label of human trafficker of children should be reported daily by millions of shouting Americans when referring to Obama.
“Threaten” my gluteous maximus! Cut the funding OFF! NOW!
the crisis that is ensuing is a direct result of failed federal policy.....Jeez, Captain Obvious alert. For the last six years.
