Undocumented Children Escorted by Feds to Meet Families

ATLANTA, Ga. - A handful of undocumented children, among the thousands held in federal facilities around the country, were flown to Atlanta to reunite with their families at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport Wednesday.

The teenagers were escorted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, along with several other children from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, to reunite with their loved ones.

Federal Health and Human Services workers are trying to link some of the thousands of undocumented children flooding into the country, with relatives legally here, ICE officials say.

Somebody had to have put the word out: “send your unescorted children - we’ll take care of them.”

I want that email.

How is this possible that we can find these shadow people except for deportation?

If I left my daughter in another country while I went off to start a new life and then said come on up. Just hitch a ride on a Mexican train full of lice and scabies. They would take her away from me.

Am certain the feds told the receivers of these children to keep their hands to themselves.

Black Americans: The True Casualties of Amnesty
Democrats throw black voters under the bus.
By A. J. Delgado
National Review on Line
Jul 9/2014

http://www.nationalreview.com/node/382338/print

One of the sleeper issues surrounding the debate on amnesty for illegal immigrants – an inconvenient one that no proponent of a widespread amnesty wishes to acknowledge – is the devastating effect so-called immigration reform will have on African Americans.

Why are Democratic politicians disregarding the concerns and needs of black Americans in a push to address the concerns and needs… of foreigners? Amnesty proponents speak of the need to grant others a better life – but what of the need to look out for our fellow Americans? What of those black Americans whose ancestors quite literally built this nation through the sweat of their brows?

Instead, Democrats are chucking aside black voters in their rush to lock in the Latino vote (or so they’re hoping). Taken for granted as a given come election-time, blacks are now actively harmed as the Democrats vow to grow their voting base through importing more and more of what they see as future blue-voters. It’s the husband who leaves his wife of 30 years: ‘We had a good run, honey, but I’ve found someone new.’

Democrats have built a brand as the party willing to stand up for black Americans, but the amnesty push shows what a false promise that was. The message to black voters is: “Yes, your ancestors endured unimaginable hardships and helped build this country, and we said we’d help you out. But now we have a new trophy wife.”

Wait a minute - I thought illegals where “in the shadows” yet the gov knows where they are and brings people to them.

Foreigners will be resettled in the United States by the Federal government and in violation of law.

The article says the parents are here legally. How long have they been here legally? How did ICE and HHS find mom and dad? I wonder how mom and dad got picked to have their kids returned?

with relatives legally here, ICE officials say.

Wasn't some ICE official before a Congressional committee recently where he was forced to admit that the guardians' immigration status isn't checked?

Does any one have a screen shot of the federal bid for escorts for minors that was bid out in February?

I doubt if the “parents” are even questioned on their status, but if they are, they can purchase some ID on the street for a few bucks. I’ve read that a lot of these “parents and family” are being paid to claim the “children” just to get them released.

“Trying” to link the children with relatives. I wonder why they chose Atlanta to “try” to find a family member? Did they throw a dart at a map?

Did the parents get a letter saying “Your kids will be on the 5:15 out of Brownsville. Be there to pick them up.”?

I’m sure they were thrilled to learn that their children had made the trip safely. They hadn’t heard from them in 6 years.

The article probably only talked about a small percentage of the parents, the ones here legally -

"..Federal Health and Human Services workers are trying to link some of the thousands of undocumented children flooding into the country, with relatives legally here, ICE officials say.."

Good PR piece by focusing on the exception rather than the majority.

Isn’t that special? Give the Feds an award. It’s a “love” thing. The reunion should have been in their home country and this isn’t it.
