Posted on 07/30/2014 3:35:28 PM PDT by Resettozero
Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee protested in a letter to President Obama that no one in his state government had received notice that 760 of the estimated 50,000 unaccompanied minors who have entered the country illegally in the past several months have been sent to the Volunteer State.
"It is unacceptable that we became aware via a posting on the HHS website that 760 unaccompanied children have been released by the Office of Refugee Resettlement to sponsors in Tennessee without my administration's knowledge," Haslam wrote in his July 25 letter to the president. "Not only was our state not informed prior to any of the children being brought here, I still have not been contacted and have no information about these individuals or their sponsors other than what was posted on the HHS website and subsequently reported by media."
Haslam reminded the president, "This influx of immigrant children could have a significant impact on state and local governments." The state needs to be informed "prior to any additional unaccompanied immigrant children being released in Tennessee," the governor wrote, while seeking "immediate answers" to the following questions about the children already sent to his state:
1. What was the process for determining that these children should be released to sponsors in Tennessee?
2. How did you locate and evaluate the fitness of their sponsors?
3. What medical screenings were the children given prior to their release in Tennessee?
4. What is the official immigration status of these children and their sponsors?
5. In what localities are these children now residing?
6. What are the legal requirements concerning the provision of services for these children while they are in the state?
7. What additional information is available on these children, such as age and health status?
8. How long will these...

This Administration doesn’t need any stinkin’ governors or State governments.
These Republican Governors need to wake the F up.
REFERENCE Violent transnational gangs 'recruiting unaccompanied minors at Border Security facilities'
Daily Mail UK ^ | July 27, 2014 | Daily Mail / FR Posted by COUNTrecount
Members of some of the United States' most notorious street gangs have infiltrated shelters housing illegal immigrant minors from Central America and are recruiting them, say Homeland Security sources. An estimated 57,000 minors from Central America have flooded across the border from Mexico to the U.S. in recent months, and gang leaders are reportedly filling their ranks from among them.
Transnational gangs such as the Mara Salvatruca, also known as MS-13, and the 18th Street gang are using established juvenile members from Central America to cross the border and recruit other children to the cartels, say sources. Recruiting drive:
There are reports that gangs are trying to recruit young immigrants from Border Protection facilities where they're being held According to Fox News, Border Control agents have witnessed gang members using a Red Cross phone bank at the facility at Nogales, Arizona, to 'recruit, enlist and pressure' other minors into crossing the border. Shawn Moran, vice president of the National Border Control Patrol Council, a union which represents border agents, says agents have witnessed the recruiting process.
The Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement said earlier this week that they have no knowledge or evidence that gangs are recruiting immigrant minors. (Excerpt) Read more at dailymail.co.uk ...
There were interesting exchanges on this topic at yesterday's House hearing on immigration.
<><> Patriot Cong Randy Forbes said Americans need to know if violent gang members are walking their streets. Forbes asked UCIS--a DHS agency--headed by Obama appointee Leon Rodrigues---whether the agency asked applicants whether they are gang members---and when they invariably reply no, how does the agency know whether it's true or not?
Rodriguez would not reveal information---Forbes insisted on knowing "do you even ask them if they're gang members."
<><> Even more interesting was watching brilliant Cong Louie Gohmert (Rep-Tx) set the trap for the oily Rodriguez. Gohmert--- the former judge's brilliant circumlocution was awesome. He nailed the mealy-mouth Gonzalez to the wall.
GOHMERT: WRT drug cartels paid $6000 to "guide" the hordes over the birder---"Would you, as a former prosecutor, call them criminals?," he nonchalantly asked Gonzales.
Gonzales stepped into the trap as Cong Gohmert casually hoisted him on his own petard. Making the point that if the hordes were coming here to escape drug cartels, why is it they pay the violent breed to get over the border?
REFERENCE Comments on the C-span hearing rebroadcast of yesterday's House hearing on border immigration.
Obama appointee, UCIS head, Leon Gonzales was interviewed. Totally biased---said his second language was Spanish----and that he once belonged to Casa Manana (or something), that was advocating for unlimited immigration.
The lock-stepping Gonzalez gets grade A for Evasion and for loyally following orders from the Commandant in the WH.
When Democrats questioned him, he knew everything and responded in great detail. But to Republicans he whined about being new to the jobs---and parroted "gotta get back to you on that."
Repub Cong/men Jason Chaffetz, Louis Gohmert and Randy Forbes were standout patriots, protecting Americans from the invading hordes at the border.
Cong Gohmert stopped the show with his probing judicial-like queries---the former judge's brilliant circumlocution, and his prodigious knowledge of the law was awesome---as well as his ability to nail Gonzalez to the wall.
WRT drug cartels paid $6000 to "guide" the hordes over the birder---"Would you call them criminals?," he asked Gonzales. Making the point that if the hordes were coming here to escape drug cartels, why is it they pay the violent breed to get over the border?
Gonzales made a show of his legal bgrnd---but he paled agaimst Goehmert's expertise. Gonzales, as a former prosecutor and officer of the court, should know that the US justice system is not amenable to dispensing justice to litigants w/ "unclean hands"---a legal term meaning those who have committed crimes. His license to practice law should be pulled.
Sad to see Cong Jason Chaffetz's resignation, knowing we'd get nowhere with the lock-stepping Gonsalez----prostrate in obeisance to Obama---his lips pressed firmly to the WH behind.
Cong Guttierez (Dim-Ill) made a lamebrain appearance--- this imbecile had to have used voter fraud to get into office---no one in their right mind would vote for the Spanglish-speaking moron.
We need to find out (1) how many identities he's using, (2) how many govt checks he, his family, and his staff are cashing, and, (3) Guttierez's membership in violent organizations advocating the overthrow of the US govt.
Governor, put them all on Greyhounds and drop them off in front of the White House.
This is almost the same letter our Gov Deal sent. He just found out about the 1154 sent here last week. Its insane that they are letting these kids in the country. The whole country is gone crazy. Top down, bottom up, inside out. Sound familiar?
Put them on buses and send them right back to the Feds.
Far cheaper in the long run for states.
I’d have them carted to DC and unloaded on the White House lawn.
Haul all their butts to the White Hut, plenty of room there. Besides, there is a nice fence their for the little buggers to practice on for future re-entries on the border.
Yeah that’s right, ship them out to D.C., because the fed dumped them off, and will then say it’s Georgia’s, or Tennessee’s problem, and there ya go with another Federal unfunded mandate the State is forced to accept for humanitarian excuses.
It’s not like this is unexpected. Police your borders, States, and arrest and dump the infractors back at the border. Arrest the drivers for kidnapping and let em defend themselves in court, confiscate their vehicles, etc.
Most of these newer illegal alien so called “minors” are said to be middle school high school age..
they better not mess with my grandchildren...
or give them any diseases..
or monopolize the teachers time..
This Administration doesnt need any stinkin governors or State governments.”
Your right. They have RINO Texas Senator Cornyn who is collaborating with Democrat Senators and going to support whatever Obama wants, regardless of how much it costs. And Boner will be right along to join hands with them.
