Skip to comments.Endless Wave of Illegal Immigrants Floods Rio Grande Valley (Admin covers-up dead kids)
Posted on 07/14/2014 6:26:48 AM PDT by kristinn
The life jackets helped many make it across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, the Mexican city across the water from Mission, just west of McAllen. Sources say they come over on rafts ferried by the so-called coyotes, the human smugglers whose means of transport are rendered useless whenever discovered by the Border Patrol. Many dont make it across the river; multiple sources became emotional when recounting their discoveries of small, lifeless bodies washed up along the riverbank.
FOX EXCLUSIVE: McALLEN, Texas Life jackets of all sizes and the occasional punctured raft are strewn along the banks of the Rio Grande, just south of Mission, Texas, where a relentless onslaught of illegal immigrants eagerly surrender to beleaguered Border Patrol agents around the clock.
Its a cycle for which there is no end in sight.
You're going to be out here a long time, Fernando, an El Salvadoran child, told FoxNews.com shortly after surrendering to Border Patrol authorities after midnight Saturday. There are thousands of us."
FoxNews.com accompanied Texas lawmaker Louie Gohmert, a former judge and current Republican Congressman, to the site in the pre-dawn hours of Saturday. Gohmert, whose district lies some 550 miles northeast of what has become the most heavily-trafficked people-smuggling route in the world, has been to the location many times, but has never seen it so understaffed and overwhelmed.
Im more concerned than ever [that the border is] so seriously undermanned and Ill be raising hell in Washington, Gohmert, who invited FoxNews.com to see the situation first-hand, would later tell Border Patrol officials.

Now it turns out bodies of dead children are washing up on the Texas side of Rio Grand Valley and the Obama administration is covering this up also.
Obama's legacy will be THAT--racist emergence from the Democrats. TWICE he was elected, which says that it's not JUST the fault of the Democrat machine.
“Ill be raising hell in Washington” Talking a bunch of crap is what he means. Congress could stop this today. It would take extreme action that hasn’t been done since the late 18th century, but it needs to happen. There is no rule of law, only power.
This could be fixed in 24 hours with National Guard troops being deployed and CLOSING THE BORDER.
Infuriating they wont do this.
When is Perry going to declare a State of Emergency and put the Texas State Guard and the Texas State Militia on the border and stop these people from crossing the border and driving them back across if they do? When are the citizens of Texas going to rise up and demand that their Governor do his job?
- Joseph Stalin
Democrat party priorities.
I’m now concerned that the NG would be ignored by the illegals. Brit Hume and the lapdog press are constantly pointing out that the guard wouldn’t be able to do anything but apprehend them. They might as well tell them “We’ve got the NG on the border but their guns aren’t loaded.”
Not to worry, Obama has a plan to overwhelm the system and create a crisis that will be overcome by more money and more government.

The ONLY way to close the border is with a physical barrier. Our NG troops are NOT going to shoot kids scrambling out of the river or under the fence. BUILD THE WALL, NOW!
And, Bergdahl is going back to active duty, while GOOD men serving are getting pink slips.
Keep calling your congress critters - it may seem futile, but if we don’t call, silence is agreement. Tell them TODAY, do something.
And tell them NEVER, EVER allow illegal invaders to vote, collect welfare OR become citizens.
If we want to keep our country we need to fight for our country.
The regime has no time for this. Do you know how difficult it is to plan a Martha's Vineyard vacation for the Obama's? (15 days starting August 9th) That's where their focus and energy should be. Not this noise. /sarc

Perry is looking very bad here.
Not stopping the villain is a bad move for anyone with the power and the duty to do so.
History will not be kind to him, not to mention the short term disaster
You pays your money and you takes your chances.
I have no idea how many. But I do know if the will was there; Guard troops could be driving that way this afternoon from different states if it was a priority to secure our borders.
Lots of people on both sides do not want the border closed.
Boehner is just as much culpable in this tragedy and murder as Obama by NOT
sealing that damn Border. Now the blood of their PAWNS are on their hands, and Americans hands!
Every American will be held responsible for the possibly hundreds of dead Chidren
floating dead down the Rio Grande like political Trash, they've been used and
When we said that Obama could cut the heads off chidren on the WH lawn and the MSM
would cover his ass, we ALL were correct, accept we didn't expect the Obama admin
to toss them into the RIO GRANDE to dispose of their victims!
WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA, NO Hope but plenty of Change, or Dead!
“Many dont make it across the river; multiple sources became emotional when recounting their discoveries
of small, lifeless bodies washed up along the riverbank.”
Collateral damage of drowned children is inconsequential to the importance of Obama’s plan to flood our country with
millions of new Democrat voters dependent upon Democrat welfare for survival. Just another part of the bigger plan to
destroy our country, and I suppose the Obamafascists figure you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs
along the way.
When is NEVER. I have been arguing for weeks to do just what you have written.
I have followed Perry for years. Perry is "all about Perry."
The Marxist is willfully violating Article 4 Section 4 Clause 2 of the United States Constitution. Therefore, Perry has a duty, a responsibility, to call on the citizens of Texas to completely seal the border.
Perry wont do the right thing because he is a very weak man, a contemptible leader.
Perry has the opportunity to be a very historic figure, instead he will be a footnote to history -- only to be mentioned in a negative light; as one of the many leaders who purposefully stood by and did nothing while our Republic was turned into a third-world spanish speaking sewer.
Zero says. So Sue Me!!!
Oh, stop it.
“Marxist”, “very weak man”, “contemptible leader”.
Grow a pair.
How about you tell us Texans what you’ve done to stop it? How about you show us by your actions and/or your state’s actions/investment what you’re doing to stop it?
How about you describe what it’d be like without the investment Texans have already made to try to impinge/interdict this issue?
You just want Texas taxpayers to pay for this? You expect to sit in whatever state you’re in and get US to tote the whole note?!
Seriously? Is your state deporting the illegals that are there? If not, why not?
Oh! It’s illegal for your state to deport ‘em. You don’t have the power. Why is Texas different?
You want us to bring in the NG? Are you gonna pay for it? Or do you just want us to do it?
Quit telling Texas/Texans how to fix things and instead try to contribute. Tell us how you’d like to help. How much do you personally want to kick in to help pay for this?
I’m not saying it’s not important and shouldn’t be addressed (re-read that before you respond), but quit asking Texas/Texans to tote the whole note. Get your ass down here and help. Or get your state to kick in some of THEIR NG.
After all, it’s a national problem...right? We ALL suffer, right?
Quit your bitching and do something.
Perry is showing himself to be somewhat hairless by yapping about calling out the Guard. He already has the authority to call out the TNG. He just doesn’t want to pay for it. He wants a feral mobilization so the bill goes to the Fedz. But he’s still not thinking clearly because at a minimum he could be having the guard units take their regular summer training on the border-—that wouldn’t cost a dime more than is already spent on guard training. And the local sheriffs could be getting off their butts and deputizing helpful citizens, especially border property owners. At a minimum they could use a few more speed boats in the Rio to wash the wetbacks south.
It’s not just kids. Kids are only 1/5 of the traffic. The dirtbag overfed adults are the ones requiring butt-stroking.
The article is about what is happening in Texas.
The cold reality you cannot face is that Perry is a very weak leader --- all Perry does is talk, talk, talk, talk, talk.
I guess this week we have have from Perry..... more talk, talk, talk, talk.
Perry is the singular leader that could make a difference and become a major historical figure -- if only he took it upon himself to act in a bold and decisive manner.
But the cold reality is Perry is very weak on being a Warrior for Liberty.
All your other questions are irrelevant...
These people will never be sent home.
Have a nice day. :)
You know nothing about me. You claim to know what I think about Perry.
How about you deal with my questions?
Where do you live, Sand88?
What are YOU and your state doing about it?
Are you going to write checks to fund the efforts you tell Texans they should do?
“...Talk, talk, talk, talk,...”, etc.
Hmmm... Unless you can demonstrate otherwise, it looks like that’s all you do.
Sort of Alinsky-ish...accuse others of that which you do yourself.
I’m here, brother. On the border. I see it, work it, hunt it, etc.
A wise man once said, “You have no right to bitch if you’re not willing to do something about it.”
Man up, quit your bitching and do something.
But either quit telling us Texans we’re not doing enough, express some appreciation for what we ARE doing or come down here and do it your own damn self.
A good friend of mine had dinner with Zack a few months ago in Phoenix. He went even further into detail of the ills of the U.S. Border Patrol during our dinner.
Zack Taylor was not only a Border Patrol Agent for 25+ years, he was in charge of Intelligence and Interdiction. He also personally told me that because of the prohibition of using ammo, Brian Terry (the Border Agent shot and killed a couple of years ago) was sent into the hills with a bean bag shotgun. Agent Terry didn’t have a chance.
Watch this video and listen to an expert on this asymmetrical warfare sanctioned by the white house maggot.
I check this map frequently. There’s a new location where they are delivering and housing these illegals almost every day. At least FOUR new locations were added just today!
Look in the mirror. Wow, calm down!! I am NOT an elected official. I am just one voice.
Perry is an elected official. Perry has the opportunity to make the greatest impact to save our Republic, if only he would ACT. He wont because he is weak.
I am a nobody, don't turn it around on me.
Perry was ELECTED to be responsible to the citizens of Texas and to uphold the United States Constitution.
Perry, like most elected officials across our Republic are failing to uphold the United States Constitution.
Please quit trying to make it about me -- how utterly irrelevant.
The simple fact is that Perry supporters can't acknowledge that ALL Perry will do is TALK, TALK, TALK.....
Go light an fire under Perry and make him ACT instead of asking silly questions about "what I will do."
If Perry would call upon citizens of Texas and elsewhere to come to the border and organize and to seal the border, I would take off work and come there to help.
There are millions of citizens who are ready to ACT if only our elected leaders would give them the go ahead.
We can't go seal the borders ourselves -- the Feds would likely take great joy in terminating all those who would do so (individually).
It takes a leader to begin a movement. Perry could be that leader but he is to d*mn weak to act.
I am NOT bitching at Texans at all. I was giving legitimate complaints about one person, Perry.
As far as action, I just expressed it in my previous post.
To save our Republic from utter destruction our border must be completely sealed. The only way I see that happening in a legitimate way is if one or more governors wake up and take BOLD ACTION to call upon millions of citizens to organize and come help seal the border.
Everyone I know are furious about this border situation. We can't go seal it ourselves.
What would Emma Lazarus say?
Beyond sick and disgusting. But...this doesn’t minimize the fact that they don’t need to be coming here in the first place!
Not like the brazen giantess of New York,
With welcoming lantern by the Golden Door;
Here at our slime-washed, southern gates shall stand
A drowned woman with five drowned kids, and blame
For this travesty can never be named:
Mother of wet backs. From her fish-et-hand
An invitation shows; her dimmed eyes remand
The air-brained POTUS Barry; he’s the same.
“Keep, Mexico your endless slums!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost like me;
The smugglers charged a fortune, and what for?”
That map is an excellent resource. Thanks for posting the link. Thank God for NumbersUSA...one of the fingers in the dike.
Meanwhile, the majority of Americans stay glued to their TV sets, doing nothing about this, while America burns. Even in my own family...many are upset, very few are willing to actually do one thing (even call a Rep), about this invasion. Pathetic apathy.
Luv W, thanks for the ping.
Anyone heard from our FReeper groups that traveled to the border? I think that JimRob said he was headed that way.
Haven’t seen any info on that - hope they’re all ok.
I think all is ok. I don’t think it was quite time for them to be here. I know Jim will ping us all :)
Thanks for the TX Invasion ping.
You’re welcome. I’m livid!
