Flow of border immigrants overwhelming agencies
Houston Chronicle ^ | May 31, 2014 | By Susan Carroll and David McCumber

Posted on 06/01/2014 8:11:26 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

... The flow of Central and South Americans through South Texas has become an unmanageable torrent within the past month, overwhelming the Border Patrol, and the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which is charged with placing thousands of unaccompanied minors who have been arrested.

"We are being overwhelmed," said U.S. Border Patrol Agent Christopher Cabrera, vice president of National Border Patrol Council Local 3307. "We have groups of 70, 80, 90 people just walking up and turning themselves in. They're finding the first agent and saying take me in and let me have my walking papers.

"If we don't get some help soon, it's going to be disastrous," he said.

Academics, advocates and government officials have struggled to pinpoint a cause for the steep influx.

We're being invaded on the southern border and the government is doing nothing. Both parties.

At the same time the economy is contracting and real unemployment is likely over 15%.

I know where Barack Obama is coming from. My question is how much more incompetent could the rest of our government get?

Amnesty talk with free ride for all making it across and into the system is my guess.

This is the sea change Obama and the Democrats have been working towards. I hope all these Americans that like their chickens plugs, rugs woven, yards tended and menial labor tended to are happy with it when they find out what the real bill is for these invading Mexicans.

Absolutely. The word is out that obozo’s last act of destruction of the USA will be amnesty. They all want to be on this side of the border when it happens.

The also know that if there is a “you must have been here x years” provision, that is easily defeated by a few lies and easily-forged documents.

Our children’s children’s children will be paying for the disaster of obozo...

Contact you congressional representative if you want to correct this problem. That is your job. 202-224-3121

Not hard for me to pinpoint.. It is right there... Arrest me and give me my walking papers. Arrest and give a bus ride to the border makes much more sense. Mexico tosses illegals into prison. If border patrol officers are nothing more than a mobile government refugee center, of course that is what most of their day will turn to.

The influx is on purpose . Part of the plan to destabilize
this nation. Nothing can be done without
chaos, We are at the point of no return .
The invasion is welcomed by Democrats.

Absolutely ... the only solace I take is that everyone that is a citizen (currently and whom will be a citizen) will be treated equally by the invasion. The RAT voters and their lapdog media will be treated equally by the invaders. Of course 'treated equally' depends on what being 'treated equally' means. We know 'treated equally' does not mean being 'treated equally' for citizens to invaders ... Ancient Rome is a great example of what is to come for all current and future citizens.

Of course! Intentional. These tyrants must have something really, really drastic in mind for us if they are willing to unleash 50 million leeches upon us who will NEVER substantively contribute to the betterment of this country beyond a vote for the Democrat Party.

We are living in a country transitioning from premiere first-world, top dog status into a third world sh!thole.

My only guess is that somehow, Obama plans to become the Emperor of the Planet.

Time to militarize the border. If the feds refuse to do it, and shrug off their Constitutional duties, then it will have to fall upon the border states to do it with the resources that they have available. Kick out the border patrol, and all of the rest of the useless federal agencies, call up the National Guard through authority of the respective Governors, put all state law enforcement on high alert, organize and deputize any land owners along the border, and expel anyone who tries to cross illegally. The feds will obviously fight you tooth and nail to prevent this, to the point of turning their guns on you, and you know that they will. That who just prove beyond a doubt that the feds are aiding and abetting a foreign invader, and would be in effect declaring war on the individual states, and violating their Constitutional obligations. If they go that far, then any federal law would be null and void, and authority would fall back to the individual states. The federal government needs the states more than the states need them.

Overwhelm and collapse. The Communist Way. After this it will overwhelm and collapse local government and law enforcement. Hence you will have anarchy. Then they can do like Mexico and bring in the Marines to try and control it. Gone is the Constitution and any semblance of sovereignty.

We are witnessing the occupation of the United States by foreign nationals.  Pure and simple, this is a silent invasion, and territory is being occupied.

As regions become occupied, they are no longer territories of the United States, in real terms.

They may remain so in name only, or by official recognition, but the occupants won't vote for what is best for the United States.  They will vote for what is best for them.

Every elected official in Washington that signs off on this through silence, is essentially a traitor.

(These are my personal thoughts only...)

I suggest that it is common knowledge that the politicians are going to grant amnesty to everybody in the country. Get in before the giveaway!

For years, the number of people trying to come in over the southern border has been measured by the number of people arrested.

This is never been a reliable measure, not even when Bush43 was in office.

These newest mojados are central and south Americans, not Mexicans-crime and political unrest in those countries is the norm...

I actually don’t know anyone who can afford to hire out yard and domestic work-we do our own out here, and illegals are NOT welcome here-ranchers and other small business owners have la migra on speed dial...

"Time to militarize the border"

That's not going to happen because Clinton sent the Marines down there and they ended up killing a Mexican-American teen boy who was grazing goats.

What about the national guard? Gov Brewer(AZ) and/or Perry(TX) can call out their guard but they have to pay for it and they don't want to.

They want the Prez to call out the guard because the feds and the other states have to pay for it. Bush sent the guard to the border and many states complained that they should not be paying to do something the feds and the border states should be paying for.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!! That's a real funny. Yep, uh huh. For real they can't figure this out or do they think we're that gullible? Apparently we are that gullible since we elected them once, twice, thrice and so many are lifetime office holders.

As a Texan, I want to know why Rick Perry does not send the National Guard to our border? As I mentioned in a post a few days ago, electing conservatives here in Texas has not put a dent in our border problems, and I am concerned the TP conservatives will do the same—give lip service to a national tragedy. The bottom line is cheap labor(money) and our elected state reps will not go against big-money.

Like I said, if you’re going to wait around for the feds to do something about
it, then you might as well just surrender your state to mexico, because the feds are going to do absolutely NOTHING about it. Time to cut the fed apron strings, and do what you need to do to protect your State.
