White House Reports Drop in Minors Crossing Border
Associated Press and ABC News

WASHINGTON — Jul 21, 2014, 9:02 PM ET


The White House says the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border is dropping significantly.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest says about 150 children daily — on average — were apprehended along the Rio Grande border in the first two weeks of July. He says that's down from an average of 355 per day in June ...

For a moment let us say the truth was told and children coming has declined but what about those that are not children that continue to come? So if part of the story is true and the rest of the story is not being told, one has to ask ... Was the truth told?

It might be because this is the hottest part of the year. It might also be that the apps are down because BP agents are too busy babysitting.

Or maybe they’ve all crossed already and there aren’t any “minors” left south of the border.

They meant "miners".

Or maybe those minors were actually 18 year old males. And those claiming to be 18 y.o. minors are actually 25 y.o gang members.

The WH says fewer are being apprehended. The MSM takes that to mean that fewer are coming into the country.

In reality, the government is probably "processing" many of them instead of "apprehending" them. So, who knows how many are coming in now.

That’s what I’m talking about. There likely NEVER was very many, actual minors.

Maybe that’s why we never got to see many pictures of these “minors”.

And, maybe the sneaked pics we DID get to see were NOT minors....but gang members, like you said.

I think there is a really good chance that the majority of the ‘minors’ are actually adults. I’ve heard that more than two-thirds of the illegals are late-teen and early 20 year old males.

There was a thread here the other night. A freeper was in the Phoenix airport and eleven teen aged male illegals were getting on his plane to Baltimore. They were accompanied by 4 handlers. None of the teens had shoelaces. Wonder why? They were in detention. Probably some members of a gang like M13. Yet they were being flown to Baltimore.

Obama is doing a helluva job. And BoneHead does nothing about it. They obviously have pictures.

Perhaps this lie from the White House due to the fact Gov. Perry has called out the National Guard and little Barry is tossing out a red herring and an old one at that. Is there anyone that can step on this cockroach?

At the same time they are threatening the people who are actually there to get them to not tell the truth about what is really going on.

It is is a 0 decoy article. Never seen them report the truth about 0. Why start now?

Shillary is next on their liberal, Marxist agenda.

I did early voting today, our TN gov is so arrogant RINO that he is not even running a campaign. I wrote in Jesus Christ, I refuse to vote for a man not willing to put a killer and rapist of a 8 year old little girl to death. Who has run out all state and fed appeals.

I voted Carr over RINO lamar, and Rory Bricco of 1 issue Debra Moody who could not be bothered to list her accomplishments other than she is against Common Core. Bricco is a Constitutionalist’s.

Where are the FOX News Network’s “Fair and Balanced,” on-the-ground, Live and in Color, News Reports on the horrific, violent events in the Central American Countries that the hordes of Illegal Obama Wetback “Children” are escaping from with only the ‘clothes on their backs?’

Certainly, ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD, the human trafficking of “children” across international borders would have been an irresistible magnet for journalists to reveal the facts of such horrific abuse of children especially to the most pity-filled Liberals.

Did I miss this famous “Fair and Balanced” reporting on Gretchen’s “Real Story,” Shep, Neal, “The Five,” Bret, Greta, Billy O’, Pretty-Face Kelly, or Hannity?

Where is the “We Report, you decide” documentation by FOX News Network?

Surely there was an hour-long “Special on the Famous 2014 Central American War on Children” that I somehow missed?

The pity-filled Liberals would have cried all hour as the FOX Journalist interviewed victimized family after victimized family - - - a sure way to boost ratings, among pity-filled Liberals.

Why is FOX’s CEO Roger Ailes helping Obama hide this horrific REALITY side of the story?”

It is one thing for the Democrat’s Left Stream Media to swallow the con-artist words of Jarrett, Holden, Reid and Obama, but quite another for FOX News Network not even trying to be “Fair” OR “Balanced!”

**************************
In the last couple of weeks I’ve read items on FR that stated 80% of the illegals crossing were over the age of 16. That means only a minority of the illegals are “children”, but the Dems and media spout the propaganda that they are all little kids.

There was an article on Monday that stated that in NC there were well over 100 rapes committed by illegal aliens JUST IN June of this year.

Keep the border patrols busy with the children so the diseased thugs can cross undetected. Planned from the get go, IMO.

The children were pawns.

If you hear ANYTHING from the government.......it’s a proven LIE! It’s all written and broadcast by the Ministry of Truth (1984).

We all now live in Bizarro world and nothing is as it seems.

I was referring to the “White House Reports...” part of the statement, not to the news media involved. You certainly have a point, though.
