Durbin: More Needs To Be Done To Help Child Immigrants
cbslocal.com ^ | August 3, 2014

Posted on 08/03/2014 4:44:31 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Elected officials addressed thousands during the People’s Mass at Fiesta Del Sol in honor of dreamers, immigrants and the 47,000 children held at detention centers across the nation.

WBBM’s Kimberly Easton reports a crowd of thousands listened intently to Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Senator Dick Durbin. Both Emanuel and Durbin assured the Latino community they will not turn their backs on children who are fleeing a dangerous situation.

“We are here today at Fiesta Del Sol. This is a Mass dedicated to the dreamers. The action that was taken by the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday was reprehensible. This idea of calling for the deportation of these young men and women is cruel,” Durbin said.

Durbin says more should be done to help children crossing the border into the U.S. on their own.

“These are young men and women who have come to the United States not by their own choice, who have lived here, they have lived in the United States and now they are asking for a chance to prove themselves.”

Emanuel said also told the crowd one or more sites that can hold up to at least 1,000 will be used to treat immigrant children fairly and humanely.

“Everyone of us are children, or grandchildren or great-grandchildren whose families at one place or another dreamed of a promise of America and the thousands of children on the border, who left the violence of Central America, we welcome them to the city of Chicago,” said Emanuel.

These morons are spending our children's birthright - and our hard earned tax dollars - for their own political benefit and calling it 'compassion'.

May they get everything they deserve.

The ‘Children’ immigrants consist of only about 15% of the current illegal alien invasion.

Hey Dick! More needs to be done for NON-ILLEGAL ALIEN “children” in this country first. If you want to help the lawbreakers, you go right ahead and use your OWN MONEY!

Article doesn’t state how many illegal children the Princess Mayor or Durbin have taken into their homes as temporary foster parents .... less than one a good guess!

We should do more -- return them to the bosom of their families in Central America, just as Reno did with that Cuban kid.

Say Dickie, how about YOU take in some of the illegals — feed, clothe and house them, pay for their education and medical care? I’m sure you have stolen enough money in your time in government to take care of quite a few of these poor “refugees.” Most of us have paid high taxes to fund the billions in foreign aid our government has squandered on the cesspools these illegals come from, plus all the donations we made to church missions and charities operating in these countries. We don’t have any more to give.

Wayne Rogers on FOX on Saturday said that any time the word “ILLEGAL” is uttered beginning a debate or argument, then there is nothing more to be said. I can’t quote him accurately but what he said was short and sweet. ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL and what can be said after that except but, but, but, but, but - PERIOD!!!!

Durbin: More Needs To Be Done To Help Child Immigrants

Agreed. I propose a two step plan:

Step 1) Resign

Step 2) Get all your 'RAT friends to resign

“”Say Dickie, how about YOU take in some of the illegals — feed, clothe and house them, pay for their education and medical care?””

It should be a requirement of anyone voting for such a bill and if the goon in the WH decides to go it alone without legislation, then all the spare rooms in the WH should be allocated to the “children” who have tattoos!!!

Isn’t this the clown that wants to always screw over our military? Interesting fellow, F the men and women who who put their life and limbs on the line in service of their country but waste American tax dollars on children who are and should be the responsibility of their own countries. I know a few names for someone like him but I don’t want to get banned.

Durbin must have a home or two, maybe he can lead by example by putting a few up in one of his homes. Pelosi, Reid and hey, even Jeb Bush since he thinks illegal immigration is an act of love, can do the same!

Rand Paul's immigration speech
...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reform
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...

More needs to be done to keep illegal immigrants from coming to the U.S. and breeding future Democrats and bankrupting our nation, all intentionally by a president, his advisor, and supporters who want to payback the white man.

“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”

-Valerie Jarrett

Durbin: More Needs To Be Done To Help Child Immigrants

I agree, we need to help them get back to their home countries, next day.

Perhaps we need a Federal Contract with Fed-Ex?

I heard it’s 12 % and that 300,000 are on their way to arrive sometime in September or October.

Notice how none of these advocates for taking care of the illegals don't themselves make any personal effort to look after these illegals. These “do-gooders “ won't get within 50 miles of the illegals.

Exactly. Even big talker Glenn Beck didn’t offer to take any into his home. He’s all about how they should be treated with compassion, never mind that most of them are NOT the children we were told they were, and for all his compassion I didn’t see him offer to take any either.

I bet we could fit quite a few into the White House. Why not start there?

There actually are not any “unaccompanied minors.” There are lots of “unaccompanied MS-13” though, but that doesn’t fit the narrative.

Phones? Flat screens? Pools? Video games? All you can eat meals? Sounds like they’re getting better care than most American citizen kids. What about them, Durbin?

Yes, Mr. Dustbin. Let's get them home to Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala as quickly as humanly possible, so that their own nations may assist these "children."

SEND. THEM. HOME.

Senator Dick Durbin needs to understand - if these ‘kids’ spent $8,000 to $10,000 to get to the United States we can spend $300 to fly them to the capital of their home countries where they can catch a bus home.

SEND. THEM. HOME.

Sen Durbin: More Needs To Be Done To Help "Child Immigrants" (if he can find any in the border swarm)

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

DICKIE AND LOIS WORK THE SYSTEM: Disgraced IRS'er Lois Lerner used her then-FEC position to save Dummycrat Durbin’s US Senate seat back in 1996. Lois conducted an inquisition into Durbin's opponent for alleged election law violations....and it worked. Dicky triumphed.

Dickie's suckup to the border swarm is a red flag----he's running scared ....as well he should.......

As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act:

QUOTING OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if you’ve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All I’m going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. You’ll still have choice of doctor.”

Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.

SEN. RICHARD DURBIN SALUTES SMARTLY: “We Democrats believe — and we stand by this — if you like your current health insurance plan, you will be able to keep it, plain and simple, straightforward.” (Sen. Durbin, Congressional Record, S.6401, 6/10/09)

DURBIN'S VOTERS HAVE NOT SEEN SUCH LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE

Turban Durbin doesn’t give a rip about the marine held in Mexico, but will go to bat for the illegal aliens.
