Inhofe says undocumented minors here at Obama's 'invitation'
Tulsa World ^ | July 26. 2014 | RANDY KREHBIEL

Posted on 07/26/2014 1:13:59 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe turned up the rhetoric on immigration late this week, telling a national television audience that young immigrants at Fort Sill and elsewhere are in the U.S. “at the invitation of the president” and comparing the situation to the administration’s exchange of five Guantanamo Bay prisoners for U.S. serviceman Bowe Bergdahl.

Inhofe also signed on to a bill by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz that would effectively end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Obama administration’s policy of giving low priority to deportation of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children and have been in the country since at least 2007 and do not have a criminal record.

Inhofe’s Democratic opponent in the November general election, Matt Silverstein, called the three-term incumbent’s comments on MSNBC’s “Morning Rundown” “insulting” to voters and an attempt to deflect attention from the 2008 law that mandates immigration hearings for unaccompanied minors from noncontiguous countries.

The 2008 law passed the House and Senate without objection, meaning it had the tacit approval of Inhofe and every other member of Congress at the time.

“These kids being here has nothing to do with DACA and everything to do with the 2008 law,” said Silverstein.

The deferred action bill does not apply to the nearly 60,000 unaccompanied juveniles who have arrived in the U.S. since last fall, but Inhofe said it is the reason they have made the dangerous journey from Central America.

“(Obama) is making it sound like, ‘Come here, we’ll take care of you,’ and they all believe this,” Inhofe told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.

Inhofe said he personally spoke to some of those held at Fort Sill and that they had been “programmed to say they had family here, they’d been invited here, they’re going to stay here.”

Inhofe said the 2008 safe-haven law that passed the House and Senate by unanimous consent does not apply to the recent arrivals and that Obama could order them immediately deported.

He said that if Obama could exchange the five Guantanamo Bay prisoners for Bergdahl, he could send the juveniles back without deportation hearings.

“It’s the will to do it,” Inhofe said. “You say, ‘How could they do it.’ Well, how could they turn loose five of the real terrorists? That violated a law directly. The president just has to make the decision.”

Inhofe said Health and Human Services has said the juveniles will not be sent back to their countries of origin — in almost all cases Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Silverstein said Inhofe is misstating the law, the reasons for the surge in youthful arrivals and his own responsibility for the 2008 law.

“What’s keeping the kids here is that they have to go through court proceedings,” Silverstein said. “There have been more killings in that area than at the height of the Iraq War. … This surge in violence is precisely what the 2008 law was designed to address.”

The Department of Homeland Security reported recently that arrivals of unaccompanied children fell by more than 50 percent in June but are still unusually high.

DACA - The Achilles Heel in this matter.

No Border Money Unless Obama Disavows Expanding DACA, Senator [Jeff Sessions] Says

Dear Colleagues:

I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic. On July 3, 2014, the National Journal reported:

“Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit. He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration groups that between 5 million to 6 million adult illegal immigrants could be spared deportation under a similar form of deferred adjudication he ordered for the so-called Dreamers in June 2012…

Obama has now ordered the Homeland Security and Justice departments to find executive authorities that could enlarge that non-prosecutorial umbrella by a factor of 10. Senior officials also tell me Obama wants to see what he can do with executive power to provide temporary legal status to undocumented adults.”

This is breathtaking.

The action the President is reportedly contemplating would be a nullification of the Immigration and Nationality Act by the Executive Branch of government. Indeed, it would be an executive nullification of our borders as an enforceable national boundary. By declaring whole classes of illegal immigrants beyond the reach of the law, it would remove the moral authority needed to enforce any immigration law, creating the very open-borders policy explicitly rejected by Congress and the people. And it would guarantee that the current illegal immigration disaster would only further worsen and destabilize.

As you know, over the last five and a half years, the President has routinely bypassed Congress in order to suspend enforcement of our immigration laws. The most dramatic of these lawless directives was the President’s 2012 Deferred Action Program for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), in which the President implemented by executive fiat legislation that Congress has three times rejected.

Not surprisingly, the illegal DACA program has led to catastrophic results. By declaring to the entire world that America will not enforce its immigration laws against those who enter the country as minors—indeed, that the United States will freely grant them access to work permits and taxpayer resources—President Obama unleashed a flood of new illegal immigration into the country. This is the disaster he created.

However, there is clear path forward to prevent the continued dissolution of America’s borders. Certainly, DACA and the President’s other numerous unlawful policies must be terminated. But as a first step, Congress must not acquiesce to spending more taxpayer dollars until the President unequivocally rescinds his threat of more illegal executive action.

Congress must demand that the President use his lawful powers to begin enforcing the law now—instead of passing legislation on the promise of future enforcement—and that he back down from his plan to widen his disastrous DACA program, which would of course escalate the existing border disaster to unthinkable proportions.

If Congress simply passes a supplemental spending bill without these preconditions, it is not a question of if the President will suspend more immigration laws, but only how many he will suspend.

Congress cannot surrender to this lawlessness. Acting in defense of Congress, our constituents, and their communities, we must stand firm. This transcends politics. It is about our duty as constitutional officeholders. It is about the solemn oath we all took as Members of Congress.

Very truly yours,

Jeff Sessions

U.S. Senator

It’s the truth. Everybody knows it. There is no way that these countries would have dumped their unwanteds onto our shores in such high numbers and so continuously had there not been some kind of prior agreement.

Sen. Marco Rubio wants to 'wind down' program for immigrant youth

".......Rubio's comments, condemned by reform activists as a betrayal of those he once sought to help, reflect the rapidly rising heat around immigration and the politics within the Republican Party as he eyes a run for president in 2016. Some of the staunchest conservatives, most vocally Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, have called for an end to Obama's program.

On the Senate floor Thursday afternoon, Cruz ripped into the president, saying he "unilaterally granted amnesty." Cruz is a potential rival to Rubio for the 2016 GOP nomination, and he voted against the comprehensive reform bill Rubio helped write and pass in the Senate last year.

Frustrated by stalled attempts at immigration reform in Congress, Obama has talked of taking more executive action. More than 640,000 people have gotten two-year reprieves, which are renewable, under deferred action through March of this year. Among them: 27,000 Floridians.........."

Leaders in these countries are drooling over illegal ATMs that will send money back to their countries.

"Mexico makes more money from what illegal aliens send back to Mexico than they do in tourism."

Administration mulls offering refugee status to Hondurans

" A Fox News poll published yesterday shows that 58% of the American people think that the Obama administration is too incompetent to run the government. Astonishingly, 32% of Democrats think their own president is incompetent.

If this plan goes through, that number will rise substantially.

Seeking to pour gasoline on to an out of control fire, the Obama administration is seriously thinking of setting up shop in Honduras and granting thousands of Hondurans refugee status, saving them the perilous trip through Mexico, but no doubt opening the door for tens of thousands of more illegal alien children to come to America........................................"

Barack Obama: Coyote-in-Chief

Rush Limbaugh. EIB - July 25, 2014

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I should have seen it. It was right in front of my face and you know why it didn’t occur to me? It’s because it’s so outrageous. President Barack Obama, it is said, is considering the idea of granting refugee status to the children of Honduras. Now, that I predicted. That’s not what I missed. We all knew that was coming. I mean, ever since we began hearing the term “migrant” and “refugees,” as opposed to illegal alien, illegal immigrant. We knew that was coming.

What I didn’t foresee, Obama is going to send US officials to Honduras and okay them as refugees and then use taxpayer dollars to fly them to America so they don’t have to catch the death train and go through Mexico. We’re gonna cut out the middleman. We’re gonna cut out the coyotes. We’re just gonna bring them here as refugees. We are going to facilitate. We’re actually going to provide the transportation mechanism for what are illegal immigrants to cross the border. It’s going to be done with an executive order. There’s no way any of it can be stopped.

It’s being done under the guise, ladies and gentlemen, of reducing the flow of migrants, but instead it’s going to have — and this is what Obama knows — the exact opposite effect. It’s going to be a magnet. And it’s just a pilot program. It’s just Honduras. If it goes well in Honduras, then they’re gonna go do it in El Salvador. And if it goes well in El Salvador, then they’re gonna go to Guatemala. And it’s not gonna go badly. How could it?

You go to Honduras, you send some Regime officials down there, you basically stamp a purple thing on each kid’s hand and put ‘em on the airplane and send ‘em here. In order to this, they will produce research, eyewitness accounts, whatever it takes, they’ll produce research that, quote, unquote, proves beyond a shadow all of a doubt that every child is escaping poverty, violence, war-torn countryside, abusive fathers, whatever it takes to qualify them as refugees.

The New York Times has the story and they’re all giddy. They can’t contain themselves, they’re so excited. What I didn’t foresee, and I’m embarrassed, these people, they’re always steps ahead. I did not foresee that the Regime would just go down there and assume the role of coyote. Although, I must remind you that I did, last week or the week before, I thought I would catch hell for this, and I didn’t, but I referred to the Border Patrol, or ICE, I forget which, as a bunch of coyotes based on what was happening already. So my instincts were right, folks. I just didn’t take ‘em far enough.

Now, here’s the way the story begins. “Hoping to stem the recent surge of migrants at the Southwest border, the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.”

This is not in any way hoping to stem the surge. They’re hoping this will increase the surge. What do you think’s gonna happen? Agents of the Regime land in Honduras, and there’s an airplane there, and if you can get on it, you end up in the United States, and this is gonna stem the surge? It’s gonna be the exact opposite! They’re hoping this will increase the surge. You’re looking here at future little Democrat voters.

“If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds. It would be the first American refugee effort in a nation reachable by land to the United States, the White House said.”

And this, of course, is a great accolade for the Regime. “Yeah, yeah, we’re so compassionate! We have such big hearts. We’re going and getting the refugees. We’re not waiting for the refugees to make the trek north and then welcoming ‘em at the border and saying, ‘Hi! Here’s your voter registration card.’ We are gonna go get ‘em, in a humanitarian effort, ‘cause we’re such big-hearted, compassionate people. We know there are refugees down there, so we’re just gonna go get ‘em and bring ‘em in.”

It’s never been done in American history. It’s never been done in world history. It’s always been up to the refugee to get here. Sorry! See how easy this is? Illegal immigrant. We’re gonna go get the illegal immigrants and we’re gonna bring ‘em here. Of course, “How can we leave their parents behind?” Wait’ll that hits. The kids, you can see them boarding the airplane.

Count on the fact that there will be cameras. Count on the fact that there will be pictures. The little kids will be running up, a little box of Milk Duds there. Do you think they’re gonna be turning around at the top of the stairs and waving bye-bye to mama and padre? (interruption) Yeah, they’ll be wearing Obama T-shirts, Obama sneakers, whatever. But do you think they’re gonna be turning around at the top of the stairs the airplane and wave, “Bye, Mom. Bye, Dad”? Do you think that’s gonna happen?

I mean, if it’s war torn and it’s poverty stricken, why would we leave anybody there? Why are we only going to bring the children? As I say, the New York Times is ecstatic, and it fits the pattern here, folks. The stated purpose of Obamacare was to drive health insurance premiums way down, right? You were gonna save $2,500 a year! “Your premiums are gonna go down $2500! It’s gonna be much cheaper all over the place.”

Right. What happened? The law’s impact was to drive insurance premiums way up, and we haven’t seen anything yet. So now the Regime is considering a plan to stem the surge of migrants, but what instead is actually going to happen — and any fool should know this — is this going to encourage a flood of new illegal immigrants to try their luck using the refugee excuse.

Under American law, “refugees are people fleeing their country of origin based on fears of persecution by reason of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group.” So you say you cite one of the above, and you don’t have to pay the coyotes to take you, now. You don’t have to find a death train and sit on top of a freight car.

You don’t have to make the trip all the way north through Mexico. See, “refugee” is now a loophole. “Refugee” gets you an amnesty card, and this is guaranteed to be abused until it’s rendered meaningless, until there won’t be any difference between “refugee” and “illegal immigrant.” In fact where this is probably headed is an effort to totally eliminate the term “illegal immigrant” or “illegal alien” and just call ‘em all “refugees,” because, here it is:

“Under American law, refugees are people fleeing their country of origin based on fears of persecution by reason of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group.” You throw in poverty in there, too. We’ll let that count. To the audio sound bites. We have a couple here from Juan Orlando Hernandez, president of Honduras, interviewed last night by Greta Van Susteren on Fox.

She said, “Why don’t your citizens leaving your country stop in Mexico? Why do they continue on to the United States?”

HERNANDEZ: (via translator) There’s a lack of clarity in the migratory policy of the United States. The language is ambiguous. That’s why the coyotes, human smugglers, take advantage of this situation. The coyotes have made parents here think that, according to new legislation on immigration reform, that it would make this reunification possible, or could just simply enter the United States with children.

RUSH: Thank you, US media. Thank you, Democrat Party — and let’s throw the Republican Party in there. Give them some thanks, too, because what the president of Honduras is saying is, “Hey, look, the language in your law is ambiguous,” and it isn’t. It’s the enforcement that’s ambiguous, but it’s the same practical effect. We’re not enforcing the law. If we’re not enforcing the law and everybody who shows up gets to stay, why wouldn’t you come?

That’s number one. The coyotes, the human smugglers, they take care of the situation. They made the parents believe that there is new legislation, that there’s immigration reform and it means the kids can stay if they get here and that they will be reunited with their parents, and this is because that’s what we think comprehensive immigration reform is. Why do we think that?

Because we hear both parties talking about “comprehensive immigration reform,” amnesty, “coming out of the shadows.” Strip it all away and what the president of Honduras claims to be hearing is, we don’t send anybody back, and those that are here are gonna be legalized. So why wouldn’t you come? And the coyotes? Well, they can make money by bringing the children.

Now what’s changed is — and the president of Honduras didn’t know any of this last night, or at least Greta didn’t ask him about it. We haven’t had a chance to ask him, “What do you think about eliminating the coyotes and flying a bunch of 767s down there just to pick up your refugees — and, by the way, Mr. President, how do you feel about that? The US is gonna send a whole bunch of planes down and pick up a bunch of your kids because your place supposedly is a war torn disaster.

“We’re just gonna wipe your population out. We’re gonna bring a whole bunch of future Honduran adults to America. What about that?” He would says “Please, go right ahead, because they will be sending money back home and when they become adults they will return home,” or they will whatever. “We’ll be fine.” Otherwise he would oppose it!

They’re not gonna object to it, so obviously he thinks it’s gonna be a net benefit for him.

Van Susteren then said to President Juan Orlando Hernandez, “You’re going to meet with President Obama tomorrow,” meaning today. “What are you going to ask the president?” Let me guess here. I haven’t read the transcript. I honestly haven’t. I don’t know what the guy’s gonna say. I didn’t see the interview. I have not read the transcript. You gotta believe me. I’m gonna take a wild guess what he’s going to say that he’s going to tell Obama. What else could he say? He needs money, dinero — mucho dinero, aqui — now.

HERNANDEZ: (via translator) We, presidents of Guatemala and Salvador and myself, will ask President Obama and the Congress to accept that this is a problem that should be shared. A humanitarian crisis of these children is a responsibility for Central America and also the United States. Then, develop a plan comprised of economic recovery in Central America —

RUSH: There you go. There you go.

HERNANDEZ: — reduction in violence —

RUSH: Yeah.

HERNANDEZ: — educational opportunities —

RUSH: There you go.

HERNANDEZ: — clarification of the migration policy language.

RUSH: Right.

HERNANDEZ: And it should be a joint effort, Central America, US, and Mexico.

RUSH: By the way, how do the Canadians escape any of this? You know, we share a border with them too. Why is that border somehow impenetrable? Why does nobody keep going north into Canada? I know that Central Americans don’t want to freeze and all that, but, come on. But you heard it here. By the way, the nugget in this sound bite is: “It’s a problem to be shared. We must share the problem. The humanitarian crisis is responsibility for Central America and also the United States,” and there you have it!

It’s a problem that we are responsible for. The poverty and the economic distress Central America, we are responsible for it. We caused it, you see, because we have an unequal share of all the money. Yeah! We have more than our share, more than we need! We took it way back when — from the conquistadors or whoever we took it from — and it’s time now, time now to assume humanitarian responsibility.

That’s how it works — and, of course, we have a Regime who believes every word of that. So there you go.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: No. Obama’s gonna do all that with executive action. I got e-mails asking, “Is Congress gonna approve this?” No! Congress isn’t going to have anything to do with this. But do you think the Republicans in Congress are gonna oppose any of this? They’re the ones trying to gain Hispanic vote favor by standing for massive “immigration reform.”

In fact, I’m gonna tell you: The Republicans signing onto this publicly so the media can report that all these Republicans are standing in favor of “immigration reform,” is feeding the idea that there are mechanisms for people in foreign countries to get here and stay and that there is going to be amnesty.

But no, no. Obama’s gonna do this with his phone and his pen, whatever, executive action. Congress isn’t gonna vote on this — and if they were, do you think that they would vote against it? Do you think the Chamber of Commerce would let them vote against this? Ain’t gonna happen.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, there’s another reason why the Obama administration is gonna go to Honduras, the so-called pilot program, and declare the children down there refugees. You know, it’s a little technicality that probably wouldn’t hold up. I mean, talking about what is the law in the United States anymore is — what’s the big deal? I mean, when the president can, on a whim, ignore it, but nevertheless, technically speaking you cannot apply for refugee status if you’re already in the US, which explains why Obama is sending US agents down to Honduras. It’s a technicality, he could wave it. That’s not really why they’re going down there. They’re going down there to speed the arrival. They’re going down there to fly them up here so we don’t have to wait for them to get through Mexico.

Try to put yourself in the shoes of this president from Honduras, who is sitting around letting all of this happen. Now, this president of Honduras in the past has said that he wants Obama to deem all illegals from Honduras as refugees. But ask yourself this. Why doesn’t the president of Honduras do something to fix his country’s problems? Where’s the pride? Where’s the pride in building the country, building maybe a tourism industry that people go down, where is this? Why is it? I’ll tell you why.

The United States is seen as a giant bank that gives money away. As long as Obama’s running, this country is seen as a bank, and you’ve got a bunch of leftists that are in power in all of these Central American and South American countries who are predisposed to resenting and despising the United States precisely because of our wealth and how we did it, capitalism. And so they look at this place as a place to be fleeced. And like all criminals, they think it’s easier to steal than work hard and achieve.

So the president of Honduras is taking the path of least resistance. “Hey, you know what? I’ll pressure Obama. I’ll pressure the United States. I’ll have him pay for my economic problems down there. I’ll get rid of some of my people, fewer mouths to feed, can boom my economy that way. So what if they’re young kids. I don’t care. And at the same time, exact a little revenge against the United States.” But the only thing that makes this possible is that we’ve got an administration sympathetic to all of it.

In the past it didn’t matter. Central American dictator hated us, South American dictator hated us, that was their problem. They had to conform. They had to reform in order to gain our support and good favor. It’s upside down. They can remain who they are and we will change in order to become more like them, which is exactly what is happening.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Hal in Attleboro, Massachusetts. I’m glad you called, sir, on Open Line Friday. Hi.

CALLER: Yes. Good afternoon. Thanks for taking my call.

RUSH: You bet, sir.

CALLER: It’s in reference to the US border being Troy, thinking back then. All right? Obama’s modern Trojan Horse is these children coming in, and they are accompanied by adults. That’s the thing I’m looking at: The big picture.

RUSH: Meaning that the children are flown here, and then after they get here, the Regime says, “Wait a minute!”

CALLER: Now they’re being flown here. They’ve been coming up in hordes —

RUSH: Well, true. Right. I’m trying to...

CALLER: — and Obama’s allowing them to come through our borders.

RUSH: I understand. I’m trying to get to your point. Your point is that once they’re here however they get here then the claim is gonna be, “Wait a minute! Where are their parents? We can’t separate them from their parents,” and then we’re gonna let the parents in? That’s your point? That’s the Trojan horse?

CALLER: You see in those photos they’re accompanied by adults.

RUSH: Well, yes, but not all of them are being accompanied by their parents.

CALLER: Right. So who are these adults that accompany them? Are they being sent back?

RUSH: No. No. Of course not. I think there’s some original misinformation about this that the Regime is trying to correct. The original misinformation was that kids and kids alone in packs and packs were getting on board trains — the death trains — and were on top of freight cars, and people said, “My God, they’re coming up here alone,” and so for photo-op purposes they’ve been put next to adults.

(interruption) No, they’re not coming unattended. I mean, the “unattended” just means they don’t have their parents. But, no. It’s been done to quiet some of the outrage. But you’re right. The ultimate end of this is like I said mere moments ago: Let’s transport ourselves down to Honduras and there is an American jet. Let’s say it’s a Boeing 767.

They got stairs up to the front door and the back door. Little kids are walking up and getting on board. Are they gonna turn around at the top step and wave bye to mom and dad? And if they do, what is up with that? Who in the world would permit that? So at some point you have to believe that the Regime will start tugging at our heart strings and say, “You know, these kids are here without their parents!

“We can’t allow that to happen,” and then they’ll act like there’s a big effort being made to find their parents, and then bring them here. That stuff’s easy to see. What I didn’t foresee was going down there and setting up a refugee camp to authorize them and then fly them up here straight to Honduras. That’s what I didn’t expect.

Over the target:

Democratic reversal on 2008 law playing role in border bill breakdown ".......If Republicans want to change the law, Pelosi said, they should take it up in separate legislation and leave it out of the border spending package.

“I very firmly believe that it would be a mistake for us to do immigration law in a supplemental bill,” Pelosi said. “You’re not supposed to be legislating on an appropriations bill.”

House Republicans, meanwhile, plan to put a provision to change the law in their funding bill.

That would leave the House bill at odds with the Senate legislation and it likely means House Republicans will need most of their members to back the bill, since Democrats won’t vote for it because of the provision.

With a group of conservative House Republicans opposed to giving Obama any money at all, the fate of the bill is now uncertain...."

The kids are coming with the Obamanation’s invitation and welcome, but they also DO (overwhelmingly) have family here (illegally) -— which shows (1) how badly broken our borders are, and (2) that this is no “humanitarian crisis” of “lost boys and girls” — the kids are being sent to join family members already here illegally:

I'm sure many are - but report after report has cities, counties and states receiving unannounced aka dumped in their taxpayers' laps hundreds and thousands of "unaccompanied children" who need to be housed, given healthcare, educated, lawyered-up, etc.

20 to 30 years from now, I can see this: These thousands of teenage illegals from Central America will be going around bragging to people with a statement like this:

"We thousands of illegal immigrant children from Central America changed the United States forever beginning in 2014, and we didn't fire a single shot."

well sure, both things are happening, illegals joined up with illegal relatives, and other illegals dumped on states, refugee camps etc.

article says data show that 85% of the recent waves of illegal kids are now with relatives here in the USA (50% with a parent and the other 35% with a “close” relative presumably aunt or uncle etc.), linked up with their “sponsor” courtesy of the Obamanation

the other 15% (out of 50,000 or 80,000 or whatever)... sure that still amounts to numbers in the thousands (at least 7500) who are being housed on military bases, dumped on the states etc.

It’s not an either/or.... it is both this and that

This 85% figure, if remotely accurate, shows what is mainly happening here — a wave of illegal kids sent to join up with relatives already here illegally. THAT is the key point — they are not “lost” or helpless or hopeless, as described by lying Democrats and media -— they are (overwhelmingly) economic migrants coming here illegally for handouts, better life etc.

I can understand why their families want all the goodies for them, better life and so on, but that does not mean that the USA should bend over and let illegal invasions continue.

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

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 with no other aspirations than to leech off of US taxpayers and advance the armed takeover of the SW.

Vote-crazed Obama bas been reduced to being a Third World flunky setting the US up big time...he's colluding and conspiring w/ the Third World. Money is changing hands sub rosa....foreign aid, extortion, kickbacks, money-laundering are in the mix.

==================================================

Aided and abetted by Boobamba, the Third World is relying on an old formula---going back to Greco/Roman times: a powerful, thriving bountiful country being overrun by savages, barbarians and thieves lusting after the country's power and riches.

Central America is salivating for power and riches ---they have no other aspirations than to confiscate our tax dollars to facilitate their armed conflict to takeback the SW and ultimatley America, itself.

THIS WE KNOW the barbarians know that our govt responds to pressure groups---so they are emptying out their villages---driving the savages across the border.

The immigration reform leeches are being coached by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, La Raza, and other violent latino groups advocating the overthrow of the US government

THE GOOD NEWS The latino vote has no impact whatsoever---it's a nothng 10% and will remain so in the foreseeable future. Democrats barely mention immigration reform on the campaign trail despite making the issue their top domestic priority in 2013 and 2014.

The news gets worse for power-mad latinos. Cong Luis Guttierez went ballistic on broadcast news---he knows the power he desperately wants is slipping from his greedy paws.

====================================================

The Greeks and Romans didnt have the internet, social media, instagram, etc.... nor were they confronted w/ L/E power.

DO THIS NOW----CONTACT FBI TIPS PAGE---https://tips.fbi.gov

<><> Taxpayers demand the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, La Raza, and other tax-funded latino groups, be investigated--- supboena official filings, phone records, emails, snail mail copies, hard drives, bank accounts, checking accounts, credit cards, debit cards, wire transfers, social media contacts, and the like.

<><> TAXPAYERS demand to know who they're communicating with, and who is directing their activities.

<><> Taxpayers demand to know which members of these tax-funded groups belong to violent latino organizations advocating the overthrow of the US govt.

===============================================

Obama's colluding and conspiring w/ the Third World to facilitate the overthrow:
<><>sending them our tax dollars and resources to help violate our borders,
<><>chartering buses and planes to dump them on unsuspecting towns,
<><> planning WH meetings on how to get more new Democrat voters across the border,
<><> registering the multiple identities w/ the DNC,
<><> handing out apps for riding the US gravy train in exchange for votes.

================================================

OBAMA MOUTHPIECE---LA RAZA ECHO--- America's Voice web site has this to say: GOP Beware: If You Don’t Enact a Permanent Immigration Solution, the President Will Have to Step in to Provide a Temporary One. The site is a great place to do opposition research - if your blood pressure can stand it.

BTW, America's Voice (americasvoice.org), a Soros front group whose stated mission is: We work in partnership with progressive, faith-based, labor, civil rights, and grassroots groups, networks and leaders to enact federal legislation that puts 11 million Americans-in-waiting on the road to full citizenship.

America's Voice even compiled a list of Republicans who have publicly voiced support for this invasion: The details of each instance can be found here (LINK): Getting to A Majority: More House Republicans Come Out for Citizenship.

Mexico has taken over huge parts of our southern border. US politicians are sold on amnesty so who can fight it. They don’t care about US Citizens ..if they did they would put the people of this country first. What they are doing is making more poor in this country. lowering everyone’s standards.

This is Obama’s direct attack on the homefront. Getting the country disabled and ready for the jihadies. Obama has single-handedly taken the country down. And there is NOTHING our representatives can do about it.

Very few of these illegal alien invaders will be “sent back”. More likely, your tax money will be used to coddle them until they can vote for DIMs/LIBs and until they can “transform” the United States into a copy of their flea-bitten home countries. Deport them all...irregardless of their age. Clown Prince nobama once again breaks his oath of office and the rule of law. Traitor is too kind of an adjective.
