Obama to meet Central America leaders, migrant numbers fall: officials
Yahoo! News ^ | 7/18/14 | Jeff Mason - Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will meet with the leaders of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador next week to discuss cooperation on the influx of child migrants from Central America into the United States, senior administration officials said on Friday.

The meeting comes as the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border into the Rio Grande Valley in Texas has begun to drop off, the officials said, seeking a victory in a crisis that has largely consumed the White House and the Obama administration in recent weeks.

In June roughly 2,000 children were crossing the border on a weekly basis, one official told reporters on a conference call. By the second week in July those numbers had dropped below 1,000 and were continuing in that direction, he said.

"We think that this is an important trend," the official said.

The officials tied the drop to a number of factors, including U.S. information campaigns about the dangers of the journey for the children and clear policy statements that coming to the United States would not give the migrants a pathway to citizenship.

The officials said weather-related declines were also a factor. Traditionally fewer border crossings occur in the hotter summer months.

Somebody in the White Hut must have put the kibosh on this plan since it wasn’t working out quite like they had planned.

“”The meeting comes as the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border into the Rio Grande Valley in Texas has begun to drop off,””

BEGUN TO DROP OFF? Got to keep the flow going! Gosh, I really hate cynics but what else are we supposed to think? Can’t put anything past this guy, can we? He’s really on the ball. Wish he’d take Harry Truman’s advice about “heat and the kitchen.”

Damage control. Needs a photo-op to make it look like he is doing something. He is turning off the green light and giving them the yellow caution light. Keep them coming but slow down the numbers.

I imagine Barry is going to demand that these governments provide plane tickets to the illegal invaders to fly into Texas rather than have them risk their lives riding on top of that train on their 1800 mile cross country trip to the Land of the Grande Pinata.

Guatemala and Mexico signed a treaty allowing the free passage of Guatemalan children through Mexican territory.A real President would be making things uncomfortable for the leaders of those two third world countries.

Nothing to see here.

Total number of illegal aliens in US stays at 11 million for 15th year in a row.

And we are supposed to believe this because?

The master at PsyOps (Psychological Operations) was Goebbels. He did say over and over again: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” He would also say that “the lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

They must have borrowed the unemployment numbers special sauce for this.

These 2000 are only the ones we catch. Or the lie told to us by the feds. They say 2000 it is probable closer to 20,000.

Bingo. The White House has run the numbers and they’ve realized they’re going to need a few hundred thousand more invaders in order to sway the November election their way.

Saw video Thursday with VP of the CBP Union where he said the crossings decline every year during July and August when the temps and humidity along the Rio Grande often exceed 110*. In recent weeks, ranchers have been finding bodies of illegals on their properties; some fairly new and some stripped to the bone by scavengers. Heat + desert + little water = death.

His meeting will likely address the unacceptable falling off and ways to bolster the chain of illegals to get it back ti the 2,000 number.
