Posted on 07/06/2014 12:51:59 PM PDT by Tennessee Nana
Murrieta, Calif. Mayor Alan Long says his city, which made headlines this week when protestors blocked busloads of illegal migrants being transferred to a local facility, is paying the price for a very ill-planned U.S. immigration policy.
"What I'm telling you right now, if those buses were to arrive here tomorrow, and enter the Border facility, you would see what Murrieta is known for, and that is a caring, compassionate community," Long told CNN "State of the Union" host Candy Crowley Sunday.
But that does not mean Long and the community don't have concerns about the immigrants that are being brought in from Texas, and that they don't have their concerns about what's led to the influx.
Long said his town of about 106,000 is a "very small town with a national problem on our doorsteps. We have local residents with legitimate concerns."
Long said the immigration system is luring migrants from Central America into a "horrific" situation.
"The system that is in place right now lures these people into thinking they're coming to a better place, but on that journey, one-third of the females, some younger than their teens are raped along the way," said Long.
Long said his community also has concerns about immigrants coming "halfway across the nation" and being admitted to hospitals for health problems including "high fevers, scabies and possible TB."
"These human lives are not being taken care of and they should be taken care of as they cross the border," said Long. "Our military is able to set up cities in Third World countries all over the world and we can't set up temporary facilities here."

I thought it was Obama and his Executive Orders ,like flies around a garbage dump
There’s also a mention of what Henry Cuellar had to say but it doesn’t fit with current policy or law
“Immigration officials are sending about 20-25 flights back to Central America from Texas’ airports, said Cuellar, but those are adults that are being sent back. However, children with no parents, and often women with children are being held and shipped off to places like Lackland Air Force base.”
1. Only children alone get to stay to be processed with hearings not women and children..
2. While Mexicans are stopped at the border or deported right away illegal aliens from Central American aren’t flown back right away like that...
3. the planes are going North and West not South...
They must be oh so caring and compassionate to the point it sounds like they support it....maybe he does. But if they are not oh so caring and compassionate they get pounded to dust by other politicians and the news networks. They just can’t take that negative publicity. Good publicity is much more important to them than having standards and standing up for citizens instead of foreigners.
I wonder if the mayor will be the first person Obama’s storm troopers will detain?
What are Federal Riot Police?
Police in charge of fighting Federal riots?
This bending over for the media has got to stop.
Rather than try to win her approbation, he should have asked, "Candy, do you have a spare bedroom at your house? We'd like to send you 20 or 30 of these poor, needy children, since you're such a caring, compassionate person."
HOUSTON, Texas--As illegal immigrants continue to spill across the U.S.-Mexico border, federal authorities are attempting to relocate the migrants from South Texas to housing facilities in states across the nation.
One such facility is located in Murrieta, California, where a large group of protesters recently blocked a bus full of migrants from arriving. The protesters remain there, adamant that illegal immigrants don't get dumped in their town.
But soon the concerned citizens may be forced to step down--Breitbart Texas has learned that federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta on Monday with riot gear to ensure that another busload makes it to the housing facility.
We need to change the law.......NOW.
Two words Mr. Mayor: Go Home. Simply say that all illegals need to go home and it's not America's problem what's happening to them along the way.
Blame the Commie pink fag that occupies the WH,
“”Absolutely pathetic. The Mayor totally swallows the leftist narrative. Two words Mr. Mayor: Go Home. Simply say that all illegals need to go home and it’s not America’s problem what’s happening to them along the way.””
He appeared on CNN last week and he voiced disappointment at the demonstrations by protesters in his town. Everything he said was contradictory to what he said at the town hall meeting he called to discuss the issue. He’s been doing nothing but negotiating with the feds on HOW MANY illegals his town can afford to take..
“”On Tuesday, the federal government began busing 140 migrants for processing in Murrieta every 72 hours, raising concerns about operational capacity, Long said. The initial federal plan called for 500 people, which was lowered to 300, but the city strongly opposed those plans. “The concern we have is the sustainability of 140 every 72 hours,” Long said. “We don’t see this stopping any time soon.” Long said earlier this week that his city “continues to object to the transfer of illegal immigrants to the local Border Patrol office.” A subsequent protest in agreement became raucous Tuesday; a counterprotester was spat upon. Long described portions of that protest as “unfortunate” and “deplorable.” The city had offered U.S. officials a mobile health clinic to help them provide health screenings and inoculations for the migrants, but the federal approval process would have been too long.” The world has never been able to see how compassionate our community is because we never got there,” Long said.
He also wrote a letter to obozo!!!!!! That will get the job done for sure.
The real question is will the military kiss King Obama off and in the conservative Constitutional States use the National Guard and militias to defeat King Obama's army of goons.
