McCain wants ankle bracelets for those awaiting deportation hearings
FoxNews.com ^ | 7/12/14 | FoxNews/AP

Posted on 07/12/2014 7:03:51 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo

Arizona’s two Republican senators are set to introduce legislation next week to deal with unaccompanied children and others illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border that includes ankle-bracelet monitors for those awaiting deportation hearings, an alternative to President Obama’s request for an additional $3.7 billion to help with the continuing surge of illegal immigrants.

“Today we face a humanitarian crisis along our southern border,” said senior Sen. John McCain. “Congress must act to amend our immigration law and provide law enforcement the ability to return these children home as safely and expeditiously as possible.”

That should be good enough to ask for another billion dollars or so.

Good luck with that. Tens of thousands of them have already been released into the “shadows”. (As planned). We won’t be seeing the again until their headlights light up your windshield.

I’d be satisfied if only McCain wore one. Of course only if the other end was affixed to his Arizona home toilet.

How about mandatory ankle bracelets and drug tests
for Congress and their Staff
who made themselves above all Laws?

Ankle bracelets only work if there’s a limited number of monitored parties. If several hundred people clip them off all at once, the resources don’t exist to go find them. That’s especially true if they’re not anchored to any particular spot or neighborhood.

Just a practical detail.

Well, you know the answer to that.

I would place the source of the $3.7 billion on Zer0, Reid, Pelosi...Maybe a few of the other vocal supporters. Let us see how long the illegal immigration is a just cause for them if they have to pay for it! Put up or shut up marxists!

Obama would probably concur. A new bureaucracy with a huge building could be created and staffed by thousands of unionized Democrats to monitor the movements of a million shuffling aliens.

There will be a ring of destroyed ankle bracelets in a quarter mile radius of where they’re attached. LOL

GREAT idea Juan.

Yes, people who broke the law to get here, who break the law to stay here, will not violate the law and cut off their stupid ankle bracelet and throw them in the nearest freight train car.

McCain must be getting some serious push back. I can just guess what the patriots of Arizona are promising his arse...10,000 immigrants and you take care of them all till the day you die. I would be not so nice, I would have him take care and be responsible for all of them. In parallel with Zero and H0lder too!

Send the illegal alien criminal invaders back to their country immediately. They can get their “hearing” at the US Embassy there. Who gives a crap what their age is.

How many illegal kids are in America now? The number of children and teenagers arriving alone from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador is expected to reach up to 90,000 by the end of the year, along with a surge of families with children seeking safe passage into the U.S. Those ankle bracelets will cost a fortune.

Mexico let these Yahoos into their country on their way across America’s border. They must suffer the consequences for acting in conspiracy to this immigration ploy. Send them to Mexico and let Mexico pay for letting them come through their country. Let Mexico figure out where these kids should go and let them send these kids back.

If Mexico resorts to armed resistance, let Mexico know they will suffer even more consequences. If we have to resort to loading these children in jetliners and sending back to their home country, Mexico should have hell to pay.

They say that the U.S. has so far this year repatriated only 890 of the roughly 55,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America who have been apprehended

What is wrong with McCain? who in blazes is going to monitor all those ankle charms? Does he think local police or probation officers have some spare time these days? What about transmitter/receiver issues when they're mobile at the store or on a bus? Is there a local manufacturer with half a million of them just laying around waiting on a purchase order? We're talking 'now' Johnny boy, not a year down the road. fcol. Come down from the science fiction and deal with now or get out of the way and shut your mouse.

John McCain was a patriot when he flew missions over Viet Nam. Today, this man is pathetic. Shame on the people of AZ who continue to elect this senile and apologetic closet lib who has sold out. Shame on him as well. The Great OZ has spoken.

Not a bad idea. Not as good as simply deporting them ASAP, but at least this way we can keep track of them.

The Guatemalans may have the biggest problem with ‘firewater’.
So when they’re prying you/your family from your car with ‘jaws-of-life’, Mr. Unaccompanied Child is already walking home, having been unconscious/completely relaxed during the collision.

The pictures I have seen show mostly males in the 15+ age range. The average looks to be 20+.

The very few mothers I have seen are not under 18.

Send everyone who is not a minor back.

Give the rest to Joe Arpaio, who will feed & clothe them for about $1 per day. When they get to 18 they are not minors and can be sent back.

The real minors, those 12 and under can stay & be reunited with families.

This will stop the flood.

Better idea, deport without hearings. Another idea, make the illegal alien’s country of record pay for our costs of taking care it them. Welfare, medical, school, whatever they are, every cent. That would stop the problem real quick.
