"The border crisis is a no-win situation for Obama... Here’s proof."
The Washington Post ^ | 07/09/2014 | Aaron blake

Posted on 07/13/2014 8:37:01 AM PDT by selfdefense

Here's Gallego's statement Wednesday: "The president's presence along the border would create an unneeded distraction by diverting law enforcement and other resources at a critical time..... We don't need photo ops; we need action. The ball is in Congress' court to do this right."...

Cuellar has a far different take.... He took to MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports" on Wednesday to implore Obama to visit the border during his visit to Texas this week.... And Cuellar didn't ask nicely; instead he criticized Obama for having drinks with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) on Tuesday and suggested that showing up just a few hundred miles from the border without visiting it would be "aloof.".....

This is about chaos and destruction. You don’t unleash a surge of violent MS13 members on society without wanting them to behave violently.

Depends on what you believe Obama is trying to accomplish.

This is definitely not going to help the gun grabbers one bit. They might try but it’s going to backfire on them.

Exactly. People who think Obama cares about blacks, or any other minority are idiots. Obama lives and breathes hatred of America and is doing all he can to destroy her.

20 years from now none of them will speak English in their homes, none of them will watch English language movies or tv, none of them will listen to English language music on the radio.

What does he mean “no win” — it’s a “win win” for Obama and a “lose lose” for American citizens all.

Eventually, they all will.

By shear numbers alone, they'll be replaced one by one.

Some people have extreme difficulty grasping the fact they are being incrementally and systematically eliminated and replaced. They just don't seem to get it.

Sheila Jackson Lee, “perhaps the stupidest person in Congress”

Close. But as long as Hank Johnson is in congress, Lee will always be second best:

Spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council for the Laredo, Texas area said that the diversion of so many resources to the border in one area 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%).

The move to split the U.S. into distinct non-State areas has begun well and this phase is completely successful...so far.

Sen Mark Kirk (R-Ill) expressed concerns about UACs having criminal backgrounds...... but told Americans that 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.

Here is the concluding statement from this Washington Post reporter:

“Basically, anything Obama does will be second-guessed and will irritate lots of people.”

I was thinking the same thing.

Don’t people know that this is all premeditated bedlam?

Hey Rush, Bill O’Reilly, Hannity, Megyn, Levin and all you who claim to be “conservatives”, stop beating around the bush and comment on what is really taking place.

Our country is being destroyed before our very eyes and you just sit there in front of your microphones, fat and happy, spouting off platitudes and talking about things everybody is already aware of.

The kenyan and his minions are setting up for effectively conferring a quasi US citizenship on all Latin Americans and is encouraging everyone who can make the trip to come here. He is not airlifting Latinos to the USA yet, but I suppose that is only a matter of time, say a few more months after he labels all Latinos as Refugees and then says his hands are tied, the UN requires the US to accept all refugees.

I hope so. It just might wake the black community up, if only 10-20%. The first place for "fundamental transformation" is going to happen in the Democrat Party.

Absolutely, whether the chaos ensues from the push back of Patriotic Americans or from the MS13 members and their American hating violence......
