Non-Border State Governors Demanding Answers From Obama on Illegal Immigrant Crisis ^ | July 24, 2014 | Katie Pavlich

The illegal immigration crisis on the border is showing no signs of stopping and the problem has spread well beyond states sitting side-by-side with Mexico. The Obama administration has been shipping unaccompanied minors to family members living illegally in the United States for months. Illegal aliens under the age of 18 have been shipped to states as far away as New York and Massachusetts, prompting non-border state governors to demand answers from the White House about what the President is planning to do to stop the crisis.

In an interview with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren last night, Utah Governor Gary Herbert detailed a letter sent to President Obama by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett, and himself expressing illegal immigration concerns.

"This is about America. We are not a border state but a lot of undocumented immigrants come up to Utah," Herbert said. "Why we're incenting families and parents to send their young people to our borders on the hope they'll get inside America really is puzzling in many ways and certainly not a very good, healthy immigration policy for America."

Herbert also criticized President Obama for his lack of leadership on the crisis.

"Nothing is really happening in Washington D.C., there's a dearth of leadership. The President won't even go down to the border to look and see first hand what is taking place. He needs to come up with a plan of first securing the border. I think that's something everybody agrees with. Why can we at not least take that first step," Herbert said. "We are being ignored and quite frankly the governors are tired of it. We've tried to do some things in our own states but we've been told very directly by the courts, 'this is a federal issue.' Okay, we'll back off, but we expect the federal government to do something. The President's got to lead."

Border crisis: Not just a border state problem

resident Obama has requested nearly $4 billion to throw at the problem, none of that money bolsters border security.

Why all the children? Obama’s DACA executive order is why. (And a news media that doesn’t care about news anymore! ...where did you see this reported?) Hat tip Heritage Foundation!

House Republicans have a $1.5 billion border bill that is offset by budget cuts elsewhere....and is less than half of the $3.7 billion Obama requested. OTOH, Senate Democrats are working on a rival bill that would provide $2.7 billion in emergency funding....a billion less than the ding-a ling requested.

CONTACT YOUR REPS AT ONCE: The funding bill MUST contain provisions for IRS, SEC, FBI, Secret Service surveillance of all WH communiques---with power to supboena all of Valerie Jarret's wire-transfer records, cell phone records, mobile devide records, computer hard drives, emails, instagram posts, her communiques with the DNC, and the like.

Tell your Reps----no frickin' way do taxpayers want Obama to get billions of our tax dollars----without assurances that the vote-crazed ding-a-ling is not using it to buy Democrat votes for amnesty....or to wire-transfer zillions to repay Central America honchos for emptying their decrepit villages to give Obama new Democrat voters.


BACKSTORY Obama used billions in tax dollars to get the Obamacare debacle passed. Some observers have noted that the Democrat-controlled Senate passed Obamacare "after a series of unsavory transactions that purchased the aye votes of several shrewdly extortionate Democrats"....with a huge pile of money still unaccounted for.

The most unsavory was Landrieu's $4.3 billion "Louisisana Purchase."

THE PAPER TRAIL IS HUGE Sen Landrieu (Scumocrat-LA) sold her aye vote in what Forbes Magazine dubbed "The 'Louisiana Purchase" that included a massive $4.3 Billion to Landrieu

FORBES REPORTED the Democrats’ nailed Landrieu’s support for Obamacare w/ a greenback bribe. Landrieu, critics believe, pledged her vote in exchange for some $200 million more additional federal funds for Louisiana. Except that, due to a drafting error, the law ended up giving Louisiana $4.3 billion: more than twenty times the assigned amount. MORE HERE


BACKSTORY In the fall of 2009, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was trying to get the necessary 60 Dimocrat votes to pass the Affordable Care Act. He needed every Dim on board, which gave waffling senators a great deal of leverage. In Landrieu's case, she connivingly saw that selling her aye vote could get her maybe $200 million federal dollars. Obama complied. Reid chalked up another vote for Obamacare. But not the measly $200 million but $4.3 billon was attached to the Obamacare bill earmarked for Landrieu.


How $4.3 billion to Landrieu was calculatedly attached to the Obamacare bill, and how Obama and Reid failed to catch and fix it, is yet another indictment of the Obamacare atrocity. The payoff to Landrieu should be investigated as an indication of how EVERY Democrat came to vote for Obamacare....and perhaps helped elect more loyal lock-stepping Democrats.


RED FLAG Even though nobody asked him, Harry Reid (D-Nev) recently announced "the border is secure"..... a potent signal that hanky-panky is afoot.


NO TAX DOLLARS TO CENTRAL AMERICA---no sub rosa wire-transfers from Valeria Jarret's office to repay Central America honchos for emptying their decrepit villages to give Obama new Democrat voters.

THE FOREIGN AID FRAUD MODUS OPERANDI---Former Guatemala Prez used US banks to launder millions (swindler was elected to "redistribute" the nation's wealth) An ex-president of Guatemala faced charges in NY that he used US banks to launder millions looted from his impoverished nation. Alfonso Portillo took office in 2000 pledging to redistribute Guatemala’s wealth.

Portillo, 61, allegedly ran scams to drain the impoverished country's coffers. The feds say Portillo embezzled about $2.5M provided by the Taiwanese embassy....$1.5 million was earmarked for “Libraries for Peace”....books for school kids.

Portillo personally endorsed three, $500,000 checks issued against an account at the Intl Bank of China in Manhattan, then deposited the cash in the Miami bank account of a Guatemalan bank controlled by “a close associate and political supporter” .....the money was funneled to bank accounts in Paris in the names of Portillo’s ex-wife and daughter.

Portillo swindled nearly $4M defense funds ...and plundered the national bank run by his alleged co-conspirator through overdrafts financed by public reserves -- stolen money paid for expensive watches and cars, for himself and his associates, according to the indictment.

Need a retort to the Democrat whining?

Self-righteous Nancy Pelosi whines: “Every child, every person, has a spark of divinity in them and is therefore worthy of respect…[because] we are all God’s children.”

REPLY: Nancy conveniently excludes American children. Democrats think it's okay to steal from them, expose them to exotic deadly diseases, dismember them during birth, brainwash them into being willing sheep led to the slaughter, adopt them out to homosexual pedophiles, deny them medical care, or whatever abuses Democrats have yet to dream up.

Self-righteous Democrats label us "meanies" b/c we want to protect our children----we don't want to bankrupt our children's futures----we don't want to expend all of America's resources to the tenth generation to subsidize illegal "children".

Besides, we were here first. We did not invite illegals to the party.......they came here to leech off of us.
