Big Majority Favors Sending Alien Minors Home
IBD ^ | 07/10/2014 06:45 PM ET

Posted on 07/11/2014 12:05:28 PM PDT by Red Steel

Immigration: Three in five Americans say the tens of thousands of minors who have crossed the border "should be ordered to leave the U.S." What about that do the Congress and president not understand?

The latest IBD/TIPP Poll, conducted June 24 to 29, asked those Americans who are following the story what to do about the influx of unaccompanied minors. Those saying that the government should order them to leave totaled 60%.

Breaking that sizeable majority down, 64% of independents wanted the minors sent home, as did 40% of Democrats and 80% of Republicans. There were 879 Americans surveyed in all.

Those who think the children "should be allowed to stay in the U.S. and eventually become citizens" totaled just 28%. Forty-six percent of Democrats thought they should stay and move toward citizenship; so did 24% of independents and 14% of Republicans.

Ten percent of all people polled weren't sure.

The findings reflect a widespread recognition that the border is undergoing an unprecedented crisis as our immigration system fails to function as intended under the law.

Which means the usual 30% want to turn the USA into a third world dump while 10% still can’t find their asses with two hands and a clue.

The problem is that there is a law he passed that prohibits the United States from sending illegal unaccompanied minors from Central America back to their home country.

Until Congress changes that law, the illegal alien kids will keep coming across the border and the ones that are already here will be governed by that current law.

Due respect to IBD, as long as we pretend that our country is a mob ruled institution, majority favors this and that, people are misled.

If these news organizations could just reach over and get their copy of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they could be reminded of the only job that anyone in the three branches are supposed to do, and that includes that wimp, Rick Perry.

Then we could get to work on getting these people sent back to their countries of origin, with instructions on how to emigrate to our country properly.

That’s it.

And the numbers will be far higher when Americans figure out that the majority of these “children” are teenagers and adults.

“Send the children home to their parents”

If Obama were to do that, we could impeach him as sending those kinds back to Central America would be against the law.

Pelosi is FOS. They are NOT Americans. They don’t even act like Americans. They should not be loaded onto the backs of American taxpayers. The commies always love to talk about everything being “fair”. There is nothing “fair” about this horse****. These people are the problems for Mexihole, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala to solve. They sell Sharpies and cardboard down there. They can make all the “Today We March, Tomorrow We Vote” signs down there in their own homeland. If they don’t like the lifestyle, they should be protesting their own governments. Send them home!

I remember when Fidel Castro emptied the mental asylums and jails and let them float over to Florida, the Marielitos I think they were called during the Carter’s admin. I think. The crime and dependence on welfare went through the roof in Florida and a huge majority had to be confined in detention camps. I would not be surprised to find these new illegal immigrant “children”, 80% of whom are males over the age of 14, are the rejects of society, too, from South America. You don’t learn from history, you repeat it.

This article is from 1998:

Could we just get over Catholic Charities.

If Planned Parenthood called itself Catholic, would you condemn the Church for performing abortions.

1998!:http://www.philanthropyroundtable.org/topic/excellence_in_philanthropy/taking_the_catholic_out_of_catholic_charities

Senator Santorum had a special reason to be critical of the organization. He had just emerged from an intense debate about the political future of the welfare state. At issue was a Republican bill that sought to curb the growth of the welfare state by eliminating the idea of a welfare “entitlement” and transferring some programs to be administered by states. Senator Santorum, a proponent of the bill and a devout Catholic, was alarmed to witness firsthand the role of the Catholic lobby — especially Catholic Charities — in scuttling the most important parts of the bill.

His conclusion? “The number one opponent, and perhaps the most effective opponent, of welfare reform was Catholic Charities.” This organization, he implied, was more interested in maintaining its own status as a benefactor of government grants than in promoting true charity to the underprivileged, much less witnessing to the truths of the gospel in a way that is “distinctly Catholic.”

From the pictures I have seen most of these “minors” are in their mid twenties to early thirties.

Perhaps this is why the Obama Admin is keeping such a tight lid on the detention facilities-to keep Americans from learning how many are actually adults and how many have gang affiliations

TADSLOS INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: Every bit of this has a political aim......it’s an outright invasion.

A Murietta resident told Breitbart News that the illegals are being deliberately sent to Republican-supporting communities like his city....a vengeful message to those opposed to open borders.

“The Obama administration thinks that if it floods our streets, in small town America, they can force us into immigration reform,” he said. “These immigrants should not be here. The only reason that they are coming here is for political reasons.”

“This is a small town – it’s mostly conservative – and the federal government knows that. The main reason a lot of us are out here protesting is because we do not want these people being dumped into our small town where we do not have programs or the resources to take care of them properly.”......Murietta protesters have been attacked by left-wingers hurling epithets carrying signs reading "you are on stolen land."

VIDEO Gen. Michael Hayden: Treat Immigration Crisis Like Insurgency
Newsmax By Courtney Coren | 09 Jul 2014 12:19 PM / FR Posted by robowombat

GEN HAYDEN: The invasion is an insurgency---"a criminal enterprise that's so big and so powerful that, as a byproduct, it actually threatens the US government."

The only way to describe it......all they need are the guns....they know where the weapons are....and so does Obama. One of their oft-stated goals is to takeback the SW.....a counter-protest sign in Murietta announced "you are on stolen land."

This is being facilitated w/ our tax dollars by The Congressional Hispanic Caucus---Becerra, Guttierez, chief among them....and their allies......it’s a barbarian invasion---the savages have said they want everything we have. They would fundamentally transform America into a Third World....

And the stupid in the WH says its "our" responsibility to feed, medicate and shelter the barbarian hordes who want to destroy us.

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

On Tuesday, Obama urged Congress to cough up $4 billion to deal with the flood of children from Central America – and others from parts unknown – crossing the border into Texas. Obama called this mess “an urgent humanitarian situation,” but what he did not do is take responsibility for almost single-handedly causing this mess two years prior.

Mexico made deal to send more illegal aliens to the U.S
Examiner.com ^ | 7/09/14 | Dave Gibson / FR by blueyon

On Monday, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina held a joint press conference in Playas de Catazaja, Mexico, to officially announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America, to cross into Mexico.

The Southern Border Program to Improve Passage, will provide for more border checkpoints along Mexico's border with Guatemala, and offer more protection and even emergency medical care to those making their way north. The illegal aliens will receive a so-called Regional Visitor's Card, according to El Universal. (Excerpt) Read more at examiner.com ...

He looked so cool denigrating photo-ops----he was cool as a cucumber when didn't go to the border on the fundraising trip to Texas....now he's going on a 15-day vacay as the deluge pour over the border onto the US gravy train.

This is a calculated strategy by the conniving vote-crazed ding-a-ling in the WH.

He's running out the clock---he knows the media will go away---the protesters will get tired---and he knows Perry is all hat and no cattle.

SPREAD THE WORD---Once the furor dies down, he'll have the contagion "humanely" reunited w/ their parents (lying in wait in Mexico).......all of 'em bussed into key Republican precincts, registered to vote Democrat, w/ directions to the polls printed in Spanish on Taco Bell burrito wrappers.

I lived in Miami during the Mariel boatlift. What a nightmare! It turned Miami into a total chithole.

I was speaking with a Cuban friend of mine who had helped some of his family come over in the boatlift. He said after about 1 year that they were totally disgusted with them because they would not get a job and had no motivation whatsoever to work. That’s because in a communist society they tell you where to show up for a job and assign you an apartment etc etc. You have no clue how to make decisions for yourself. Remind you of any of the people voting for Obama?

We just got word that we and our Grandkids were exposed to a case of whooping cough while at a 4th of July party in San Diego. One of the other Grandkids present turned out to have whooping cough from one of her school mates.
No guarantee that it was brought over by an illegal, but they and the crazy parents who don’t allow their kids to get the Dpat shot are causing the problem.

Those thaty present a direct health threat to the American populace, should be quasantined, as they did with Ellis Island, years ago. I suggest the old airbase out by Victorville, CA. it’s far enough remote from any major city, in case of any further outbreaks.

Those that are healthy should be put back across the border, and the vehicles disabled, so they cannot be turned around.

In the meantime, since The Queer-In-Charge is not going to do it, public militias should stand guard at the border, and repel, at any cost, any further invasions.

the various ethnic racial charities that support Zero need more money. “the children” are just the excuse to fill up their coffers.

Of the 3.7 Billion (now up to 4.3 Billion), only 1.9 million will actually go towards border security. 1.5 million is for attorney welfare.

The rest is a slush fund.

In a recent poll of Central Americans, 50% indicated they would prefer living in the United States. That seemed a bit low, so when asked to explain the result, the pollster replied: “Well, it’s because the other 50% are already here!”

$20M if they go first class, $14M if we send them coach. We’re already flying them all over the U.S. now on commercial aircraft even though they do not have valid identification which the rest of us must have or the TSA goons won’t let us fly.

Least expensive would be to just load them up on Air Force One and take them all back to where they came from.

And, of course, they are taking all their germs and diseases with them on commercial aircraft. Don’t know why anyone would risk flying any more on a potentially contaminated aircraft.

"He" was G.W.Bush, not a real firm border control guy regardless how good he may have otherwise been. It does not prohibit return, it requires due process.
On the other hand, how should it apply?
100% of these "children" came to us through the courtesy of mexico, they're either mexico's problem or ours & mexico had to work, re-interpret immigration laws, and expedite transport to the USA, in order to scrape them off on us.
Seems that it's about time we learned how to return the favor. Starting by handing this particular problem, including gang bangers and hopeful relatives marking time just below our only southern border, back to our scumbag neighbors whether "they" like it or not.
