Skip to comments.Don't Put Undocumented Immigrants in Idaho, Otter Tells Feds
Posted on 07/23/2014 5:06:21 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter sent a letter to federal officials Wednesday voicing his opposition to using the state as "a destination or a staging area for the influx of unaccompanied and illegal immigrants entering the United States through our southern border."
In the letter to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Leon Rodriguez, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell, Otter blames the federal government for creating the current crisis at the border, and says Congress needs to take action to enforce the law.
"Idaho will not open itself to the unwelcome challenges with which other states have struggled at the federal government's hands," Otter wrote. "This entire catastrophe is only further evidence that the federal government continues to fail to administer the law and secure our southern border. The Obama administration seems to have entirely disregarded the impact of its failures on states and taxpayer resources."

Probably already there. Governors are NOT consulted.
It’s like The Grand Uniter wants the WHOLE country to think about secession?
This is weird.
And if obozo goes ahead and does it, what will Gov. Otter do?
Send another letter?
Seeds. First these illegals, then their immediate families, then their extended families, then others from their region.
How do you think all those Scandinavians and Germans arrived in the Midwest? Chain migration.
“The transformation of America.”
Well, I sure hope not because I want to move there!
He’ll do what rick Perry is doing... Nothing
Oh. that’s right, he’s sending the unarmed National Guard down...in 30 to 45 days, if they get some volunteers...who won’t be authorized, read, sanctioned for going.
Maybe the gov will say it is “ unacceptable” as Obama does as he is caving in to Iran, North Korea, Assad, etc.
Nobody seems to want these urchins, so pResident Soetero must think we’re all terrible racists.
Well, he can **** in his golf cap.
But what do Bluto, Pinto, and Flounder have to say?
You are absolutely correct. Except, if they were found to have some kind of sickness, they were removed from the general population.
Maybe the Governors should with state troopers and sheriffs arrest the federal agents transporting these illegals and charge them with human smuggling.
Governors are NOT consulted.
Is this a first?
Well, there are so many obstacles to doing anything to stop this dumping. There is so much Federal land out west, and so many federal facilities everywhere, that they don’t need to ask a governor for permission. They just show up at some facility with the illegals and drop them off. And some liberal church there will be more than willing to support them.
They should all be sent to these sanctuary cities and give the residents what they want and the opportunity to pay.
You want ‘em you got them.
Sounds like the opening scenes to the HBO movie, ‘The Second Civil War’. Folks should look up that movie plot.
