Skip to comments.Dems Wrong: 2008 Law Does Not Allow Alien Child Invasion

Border Crisis: A new report shows the vast majority of unaccompanied minors aren't unaccompanied at all, have family members inside the U.S., are not victims of human trafficking and thus can be deported immediately.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois and other Democrats have repeatedly made the argument that Republicans shouldn't complain about the current border invasion since it was a 2008 law that automatically entitles minors from noncontiguous countries to asylum hearings before they face deportation.
Gutierrez and his liberal colleagues in Congress and the media should read the law to find out what's in it.
As the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) points out in a recent report, under the definition of what constitutes an unaccompanied child (UAC) in the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, most children from countries other than Canada or Mexico do not qualify to stay here while they await a hearing

most children from countries other than Canada or Mexico do not qualify to stay here while they await a hearing
so does the law say they must return to their own countries and wait for the courts to rule on their case ???
The law says they can be dorted immediately, period.
The law means whatever Obama says is the law.
Since when did the LAW matter to a Democrat?

Why didn’t the republicans find this out. Are they trusting obama or the media on details instead of reading it themselves? That’s as bad as nazi Pelosi.
Seems disingenuous since several of these photos were not even taken in the U.S. and the individuals certainly are not part of the current wave of immigrants. Is it necessary to put up exaggerated caricatures rather than the simple argument that illegal entry is illegal?
In this situation, where you have hundreds of thousands, literally, of people coming across the border and you're only catching a small fraction, if you're not telling the public that 80-90 percent of what's coming across the border is not being apprehended and you're putting their focus on this ten percent that is being apprehended only showing them the one percent that are six-, eight-, ten-years-old and appeal to the compassion of the American people and not show them the people with these serious communicable diseases, the fact that they are known gang members. They have the gang tats all over them. Because they do not have a conviction in the United States, they're turned loose free in the United States.
Btw, you are free to volunteer to work on the ‘thon team and post graphics...................
THE KIDS ARE NOT WALKING HERE. They are being bused and flown in by U.S. federal contractor, G4S, and let it short of the border and told to walk across to foster the illusion with MSM photo journalists laying in wait to take photos to fool the idiot part of the population.

That’s what I have been saying from day 1. I actually read part of the law. The law is about trafficking not people coming here on their own. As usual the Dems have twisted the law to mean what they want it to mean and everyone reports it as truth.
Oh yeah my big bitch. You have to find it out on your own because the Republicans are too stupid to point it out and just buy into the Dems talking points. Worthless bunch!!
Unfortunately true. Without an effective opposition, Obama can operate as a King, not a President. Unless the military or millions of aroused Americans surround the White House to stop him, he can do anything. A slaw suit or an impeachment that will never lead to a conviction will simply run out the clock as the US sinks beneath the waves of Obama led invaders.
Thanks for the ping.
