Obama's Daughter, Malia, Spring Breaks In Mexico With 25 Secret Service Agents (School Trip)
International Business Times ^ | March 19, 2012 | Michael Billera

President Barack Obama's 13-year-old daughter, Malia Ann Obama, will be spending her spring break in the Mexican city of Oaxaca with 12 friends and 25 Secret Service agents.

The young tourists will be in a downtown hotel in the city known for its colonial architecture and native traditions, reported a state police official.

President Barack Obama’s 13-year-old daughter, Malia Ann Obama, will be spending her springbreak in the Mexican city of Oaxaca with 12 friends and 25 Secret Service agents.

"We are here to block access to the hotel by other people and escort the vehicles that are carrying the visitors to tourism sites," the police official told the AFP under the condition of anonymity.

Along with the 25 secret service agents, Obama and her friends will protected by a slew of Mexican police officers, according to the AFP.

The group arrived in Oaxaca on Saturday and reportedly visited the architectural site of Mitla. They also visited the tree of El Tule, believed to be approximately one thousand years old. The group also plans to travel to Monte Alban, which is known for its archeological research as well as the artisan sections of the city.

That's the only way I would consider going to Mexico, with 25 Secret Service guys protecting me. A friend went to Cabo last month. I thought he was crazy but it turned out the Secret Service was there at the same time, setting up security for Obozo when he goes down for a meeting.

How can it be legal for the president to send his family all around the world on pleasure trips and force the taxpayers to pay for it.

What kind of parent lets a 13-year old girl go to Mexico with friends?!

The Secret Service is not for parenting.

Who is the parent watching these children?!

Typical leftist elitist hypocrisy....

and ironic, considering that the US travel advisory has warned US citizens to NOT spend spring break in Mexico due to the drug and gang-related, out of control crime.

I guess if you’ve got 20+ taxpayer-funded bodyguards...

it’s ok.

I keep thinking that I couldn’t possibly detest the Obamas and their leftist ilk any more than I already do. And they keep proving me wrong.

The sad thing is his worshippers will tell you there is nothing wrong with this. And they mean it.

obama could say the sky is red and they’ll say “Well, there are probably people who are color blind who see the sky as red.”

Good question. Also, did the 12 friends pay their own way, or did we pick up the tab for them as well?

Another question: If Obama is legitimately concerned about our own economy, why aren't they vacationing in the U.S.? What kind of message does this send?

Didn’t she just get back from a ski trip? Seriously, this is getting ridiculous. I don’t know about others but we are doing everything we can to keep our heads above water. This is a slap in the taxpayers face. These people are acting like they hit the lottery.

This is appalling!! Why is a 13 year-old going to Mexico (presumably without parental supervision!) and why is this occurring on OUR dime!!!

I cannot control my outrage at the trailer trash in the WH much longer!!!

So the ski trip last month was not spring break. Just in case Dad doesn't get reelected, let get all the travel in on the taxpayers’ backs that we can. This is nothing but elitist arrogance.

It’s a Sidwell Friends school trip. The previous thread got yanked when pictures were posted followed by demeaning comments about her.

I tried but it just wasn’t coming together.

Much too delicate a subject I guess.

All my comments self censored.

Ok, just one, in agreement with a previous, what in H, E, double pickup sticks is a 13 year old doing on a spring break? Further agreement with where’s the parent, even more agreement with who’s paying, Mexico when the US is suffering, and mostly just when you think there are no more surprises, B I N G O!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey! Black democrat politicians are ENTITLED to “live large” on the taxpayer dime because of “the legacy of slavery in America”.

To criticize them for it is “racist”!

Keep things in perspective people. This is an organized, supervised school trip that ALL of the middle schoolers in the school go on the week before spring break (it’s supposedly one of the programs that rich parents like about that school). All the kids pay their own way, and they’ve gone to other countries (including England and Russia) in the past.

The only travesties here are that she goes to a school that sends all of their kids to other counties on school trips and the fact that we’re footing the bill for 25 secret service guys.

google sidwell friends school minimester for more info.

I understand the school-sponsored nature of the trip.

What I don’t understand is how a well-respected school could justify sending a group of its students into a drug-infested and violent country. I know native Mexicans (here legally, naturalized citizens) who won’t go back, even to visit family. It’s just too dangerous.

Funny,

I don’t remember Amy Carter, the Bush girls, or even Chelsea Clinton doing stuff like this.

I don’t think this is going to go over too well.

Oh, I agree with that part whole-heartedly. So what, that small specific part of mexico is slightly less dangerous to send a class of kids to? Then again, they know wherever they send the kids this year, they’re going to have a ton of ss guys - maybe they chose such a dangerous area on purpose?

generally the classes travel together, and the school supplies the chaperones.

I see a lot of travesties here. They have made absolutely no sacrifices to this country whatsoever, at anytime in their lives. They have been living LARGE since the moment they rolled into DC. They don’t have enough respect for the people of this country who are paying up to 5.00 for a gallon of gas, to keep travel at a minimum, and for national reasons only. This girl did not need another vacation. Didn’t Obama tell us at one time that we might have to give up some vacations, etc. No there is a lot wrong here and there is no excuse. So you are telling me that the presidents daughter is flying with her friends commercial and not a charter or AF2? I don’t believe it.

Sorry, don’t care if it’s school sponsored or not. Here’s the appropriate response.

“Sorry honey. It would cost the taxpayers far too much for you to go. Lots of families can’t afford even one vacation this year and you’ve had so many.”

If this is an organized school trip, they knew it was scheduled. Maybe they should not have gone on the ski trip less than a month ago. Flat out bs.
