Federal Government Sends Hundreds of Unaccompanied Alien Children to ... in the Chicago
NRO ^ | July 11, 2014 | Ryan Lovelace

Posted on 07/12/2014 8:58:57 PM PDT by upchuck

The Department of Health and Human Services has brought nearly 430 unaccompanied alien children (UAC) to Chicago, and placed them under the care of Heartland Alliance, according to a release from Senator Mark Kirk (R., Ill.). Heartland Alliance, describes itself as “the leading anti-poverty organization in the Midwest” on its website and is an HHS grantee. The kids are being held at multiple locations in the Chicagoland area, a staffer in Kirk’s office tells National Review Online.

An additional 319 alien children have been placed with family members or sponsors in Illinois as of June 17, 2014, according to another release. Kirk has expressed concerns about whether the UACs had criminal backgrounds, but said the State Department was unable to provide information about the matter. “If any of these individuals has a criminal record in their home country, our government owes it to the American people to facilitate a sharing of records and reassure our nation that these individuals pose no threat,” Kirk said in the release. In order to better determine whether or not the minors had criminal histories before illegally entering the United States, Kirk sent a letter to U.S. ambassadors in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras requesting information about whether the embassies have done background checks on the UACs.

Kirk is all worried about criminal backgrounds. And he should be. But what about TB, lice and all the other possibly deadly diseases these criminal aliens may be carrying?

I'm beginning to understand now. $6K/month per kid is a lot of cash. Giving even one kid to a family (i.e. some single mom, some gangbanger, etc.) instantly brings them into the middle-class... at taxpayer expense of course.

More wealth redistribution.

somebody really smart has to do an analysis of why this is all happening. if you think about a couple of hundred kids in a city like Chicago, its not going to change the demographics. if there is a twenty year plan of the browning of America, that’s one thing, but I don’t see a change for the short term.

All of the pictures I’ve seen posted of these “children” depict mostly men and young men who look Los Zetas graduates.

This may be why the DHS doesn’t want visitors. People returning home would tell their friends, acquaintences, churches and social clubs, e.g.:

Joe Earnest, U.S. Representative speaking at St. Mary’s annual pancake dinner, “I wish I had better news, guys, but these ‘unaccompanied children’ appear to be MS-13.”

“... in a city like Chicago, its not going to change the demographics.”

A few years ago, Chicago had the second largest Hispanic population in the US, behind Los Angeles. I don’t know if that’s still the case, but it probably is.

This isn’t about changing the demographics. I suspect there is something much more sinister afoot. Obama is certainly complicit, but it’s probably above both his and ValJar’s pay grade to know the endgame.

The US has been relaxing drug laws.

The cartels need LOYAL dealers and distributors. Ones who have family left behind. Ones who would die rather than get arrested.

Heroin is the new rage, and the new network is being put in place. Your tax money is even paying for the network.

Now you know.

I’m getting damn tired of this. All this dispersal of illegal aliens is so in the future Obama can just say, “We don’t know where they all are, so we can’t deport them.”

If you think finding emails is hard, try finding an 18 year old, who has no records in the US except some court appearance promise, who doesn’t want to be found. Even if the Congress and the Presidency turn Republican, there will be no way to find them to deport them.

FYI. The community that O organized was controlled by a black Muslim street gang founded by a Mexican drug cartel
Jesse J’s half brother Noah Robinson as in M Robinson O is doing life for his involvment with the gang. Besides drugs they also did murder for hire, female-male prostitution and were charged with domestic terrorism via gun running/Kaddaffi.
MO spent enough time in JJ home to be called sis by siblings More than one blog said all were close to Noah until his arrest. MO wore the gang colors to some inaugural events
And we wonder why our southern border isn’t closed. It might interfere with buzzness of friends and relations!

...”Kirk is all worried about criminal backgrounds. And he should be. But what about TB, lice and all the other possibly deadly diseases these criminal aliens may be carrying?”...

When our laws are ignored, chaos ensues and that is why this whole situation is happening right now. The other thing which I wonder about are the photos which are supposed to be of children but are of crowds of young men who look to be teenagers up to ???? Is anyone else concerned about that?

The link between drugs and crime, including violent crime, would be hard to overstate in Chicago. Eighty-six percent of adult males arrested in Chicago last year tested positive for drug use. Chicago, with a population of 2.7 million, had 506 murders in 2012, the highest per capita among the four most populous U.S. cities.

“This isn’t about changing the demographics. I suspect there is something much more sinister afoot. Obama is certainly complicit, but it’s probably above both his and ValJar’s pay grade to know the endgame.”

I’d imagine it is about re-populating areas abandoned by Americans to keep the bureaucrat class employed; that is why NJ doesn’t enforce any immigration laws. If they didn’t traffic these illegals here, we’d have ghost towns complete with empty school buildings (and a lot of unemployed government workers). Now we’ve kept our population up, though those same areas resemble Indian reservations filled with five foot Aztecs and Incas and their anchor babies...

TB is the least, MERS, MERSA and Leprosy are among those highly contagious diseases.

Why has NO ONE asked the questions WHY NO MEDICAL BIO HAZARD SUITS, NO DECONTAMINATION AFTER EACH EXPOSURE. Which means the medical staff who know better and the Border Agents are spreading it home to their families and in to your community!

Start calling our county and state officials, it can be stopped if there is a big enough out cry.

For seniors or people with low immunity factors these can be deadly. And there are NO vaccines for them.

Well, yeah.

I was referring to their budget. It didn't come from Congress. THAT was my point.

If HHS and other agencies have the $$ to deal with this 'crisis', then there's no need to even discuss $3.7 billion about 'caring for the children'...it's being done WITHOUT Congressional action.

GOP can just write a bill to secure the border and return the invaders, shoot it to the Senate and give the WH a big FO.

Oh...and maybe sanction HHS for illegally transporting illegal immigrants (</sarc> - like that's ever going to happen). I never pinned down the USC that makes that case. Has anyone else with more time than I?

I suppose these agencies have piles of contingency money just waitin’ to be used for whatever purpose. Transport IA’s (UAM?), maybe buy some more ammo? Seems like the congress can somehow fund some things but can’t make an actual budget. Don’t know about the USC case/s.

.....to better determine whether or not the minors had criminal histories before illegally entering the United States, Sen Mark Kirk (R-Ill) sent a letter to U.S. ambassadors in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras requesting information about whether the embassies have done background checks on the UACs.......

Spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council for the Laredo, Texas area said that the diversion of so many resources to the border is allowing drug cartels to sneak illegal drugs and weapons across the border undetected.

RAMIFICATIONS OF THE INVASION KICK IN---illegal sex offenders, drug-runners, gang members and terrorists are enrolling in US schools.

NRO reports adult illegals posing as "unaccompanied alien children" are attempting to enroll at Massachusetts public high schools. Some of them had gray hair, said they were 17 years old, and claim to have have no documentation.

School policy is to check w/ families---who identified the graying man enrolling in their school as a 35-year old adult.

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

Gray haired men enrolling in schools?

More likely drug lords and drug runners are infiltrating public schools---planning to set up long-term lucrative businesses. You know how that works? Giving kids free samples to get them addicted is part of the cartel business plan.

Graying men posing as high school teens could also be sex traffickers --- lining up nubile kid for their johns..... and the young 'uns for pedophiles who pay big bucks to get ahold of the little darlings.

Anyhow, tolerant and compassionate libbers whining about the "humanitarian crisis" must be OK with that (/snix).

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

Town fathers are also in for a shake-up when their carefully drawn budgets are looted by the "little children" and gray-haired high school students enrolling in their schools.

Hugo Chavez taught Boobamba a neat trick---if you don't have the votes to win---you import them from destitute countries. If you promise them billions in remittances they'll gladly empty out their villages.

INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY---Central America Border Rush Fueled By Remittances
(extortion racket---US taxpayers to prop up corrupt govts)

......52,000 unaccompanied illegals crossed the south Texas border this year.....as the political debate focused on immigration enforcement, a key economic factor has been lost in the clamor. Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, which are supplying three-quarters of the latest cross-border flood, and are dependent on their diaspora in the US to prop up their own woeful economies.

Immigrants send back billions of dollars to their families. Remittances have risen to 16.5% of El Salvador's GDP, 15.7% of Honduras' and 10% of Guatemala's, according to World Bank data. Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Bolivia rely on remittances for 4.1% to 9.7% of GDP.

But the figure drops precipitously for every other country in Latin America. Mexico, with the largest immigrant population in the U.S. with as many as 13 million people, now relies on remittances for just 2% of GDP.

Migrant remittances to Mexico were $22 billion in 2013, 29% below their 2006 peak. For Colombia, once a locus of drug-war violence, that has turned itself around, remittances are only 1.1% of GDP. Free-market star Chile's figure is 0%.

It's not surprising to see Central American leaders urging the U.S. to let the newest arrivals stay. Those migrants' remittances offer a lifeline to desperately poor countries. While the money goes to families, it helps the broader economy......and ultimately fills government coffers.

A 2008 Pew Research Center survey found that 54% of foreign-born Hispanics send remittances to their home countries, compared to 17% of U.S.-born Hispanics. Undocumented immigrants are believed to send more cash home than either.

Virtually all the cash received by the three remittance outliers is from the U.S. (Guatemala 89%, El Salvador 90%, Honduras 87%).

Sen Mark Kirk (R-Ill) expressed concerns about UACs having criminal backgrounds...... but asserted the US State Department was unable to provide the information. “If any of these individuals has a criminal record in their home country, our government owes it to the American people to facilitate a sharing of records and reassure our nation that these individuals pose no threat,” Kirk said in his written statement.

Victor Davis Hanson's "The Moral Crisis On Our Southern Border" points out that the bulk of the invading hordes are from Central America. (SOURCE: National Review)

Hanson ponders the reasons why, even though Mexico (ironically) has much tougher immigration policies than does the United States, the deluge trekked up through Mexico cartel territory and were not turned away at Mexico's southern border?

Hanson postulates that Mexico passed them on because there was a sub rosa plan to get them over the border into the United States.

<><> What was the mechanics of the deal?

<><> Why did Central American governments empty their village of vulnerable youth without taking any responsibility for their well-being?

The sheer numbers traveling thousands of miles through savage drug cartel territory raises suspicions WRT:

<><> callous parents sending children as pawns northward without escort;

<><> parents prolly given guarantees of free passage and eventual citizenship for themselves,

<><> parents making deals to send back remittances once they boarded the lucrative US gravy train,

<><> parents willingly sending children,

<><> or were parents pressured to put their children at risk cash payments?

The scenario is shocking:

<><> hundreds of thousands of parents acting in concert.

<><> roguish and callous parents willingly let children ride the roofs of speeding trains,

<><> young children seized by Central Amrican govt authorities.

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

Assuming that the kids were indeed sent ahead of their parents to be tools for their own immigration to the US, what tracking mechanisms (if any) were put in place so that these parents could eventually find their children? The entire procedure seems so hodge-podge (the possibility of a reunion seems implausible.

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

This is de facto abandonment of children by their parents....AND/OR the seizure of the children by corrupt Central American officials.

Where are the tolerant and compassionate lib/progs?
