  • Four Months of ‘Basic Shelter Care’ Cost Twice a Year at Sidwell Friends

    CNS ^ | December 9,2014 | By Barbara Hollingsworth
    A Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) contractor spent $86,846.34 to provide “basic shelter care” for each unaccompanied minor aged 12 to 17 who illegally crossed the southern border and was housed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma earlier this year, according to documents released to Judicial Watch under a Freedom of Information Act request. That sum is more than twice the cost of tuition and fees for an entire year at Sidwell Friends, the exclusive private school in northwest Washington, D.C. that Sasha and Malia Obama and Vice President Joe Biden’s grandchildren attend. “It is outrageous that the Obama administration...

    Conservatives in the House rebelled against their leadership on Thursday to scuttle an emergency spending measure that addressed the migrant crisis at the southern border, pushing the issue to a showdown on Friday as lawmakers prepared to leave for a five-week recess. The unexpected turmoil offered a coda to the dysfunction that has gripped the Capitol for much of the year.
  • Boehner may Blow up Recess (Force vote on Border Bill)

    House Republicans may force the House to stay in session until they get enough votes to pass the border package. “We’ll stay until we vote,” House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) told reporters staking out a special GOP conference meeting. A house GOP leadership aide said the decision hadn’t been made yet. Another House Republican told NRO, 45 min into the meeting, that there was “no sign anyone has changed so far.”
  • Democrats Admit Amnesty Is For Political Purposes

    Politics: Give us your poor, your tired, your future Democrats waiting to be registered. That's what some in the party are saying as they urge the president to pursue immigration goals even if it hurts in the '14 midterms. In other words, damn the political torpedoes and full speed ahead in the fundamental demographic and political transformation of America. "You'll always have members whose political vulnerability they tie entirely to immigration," said Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz. "We didn't make progress when we were in the majority because we were being protective of those (members) on immigration reform. At some point...

    American kids and teenagers will be sharing their already-crowded classrooms with tens of thousands of ill-educated Central American migrants this fall, because President Obama is distributing perhaps 100,000 Central American migrants across the country. The Central American student “have very, very limited amounts of education [and] in some cases, they cannot count to 10,” said Caroline Woodason, assistant director for student support at the public schools in Dalton, Ga. “They can’t turn on a computer. They’ve never even seen a computer,” she told the Dalton Daily Citizen. In Fairfax, Va., “teachers [are] dealing with children not just learning English but...

    Gov. Rick Perry to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to RGV Texas Gov. Rick Perry plans to announce he will activate the Texas National Guard at a news conference Monday in Austin, said state Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen. Hinojosa did not have details of the effort, but an internal memo from another state official’s office said the governor planned to call about 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the Rio Grande Valley — at a cost of about $12 million per month. The memo was provided to The Monitor on the condition of anonymity because the information is...

    SAN ANTONIO -- The Texas Border Volunteers set up patrols on ranches in Brooks County throughout the year. Linda Vickers and her husband, Mike, organized the group after constantly encountering immigrants crossing their ranch. During one watch last year, they reported two groups with more than 100 immigrants. These people are crossing very rough, brushy south Texas ranchland, mostly in the middle of the night. Over the past 7 years, the group has reported literally thousands of immigrants to Border Patrol, which actually works with the group. Jim Gibson, the spokesman for Texas Border Volunteers said on their most recent...

    Media is lying to us again! Unaccompanied minors from non-contiguous countries are NOT permitted to stay under the a law signed by President Bush to prevent Sex Trafficking! The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 was intended to prevent children involved in the sex trade from being deported back to their pimps.... It passed by unanimous vote of the congress for a noble purpose... In no way it is intended as a loophole for Obama to act as Coyote-in-Chief & deliver 50,000 unaccompanied Central American Children & 300,000 ADULTS to our door steps! Google it here: William...

    The border crisis could reach the front doorsteps for dozens of neighbors in a Grand Prairie community. That’s because the old Lamar Alternative school on Walnut Street has been placed on a short list of three locations in North Texas that could house some of the 2,000 children expected to be brought up to DFW from the border. It’s a plan that would build a fence around the school building to keep the children in, and one that has folks on both sides of that fence. “It’s ironic it’s 4th of July, I mean how desperate are we that we...

    The Law: Residents of city proud to be called Reagan Country rose up last week to halt busloads of illegal immigrants being dumped into their neighorhoods, showing why they may have started a grassfire national movement. To get into the town hall meeting at California's Murietta Mesa High School, you had to work your way through 200 angry protesters. Many of them were in green and white Mexican soccer jerseys and bandanas and waved Mexican flags, at least one with "Viva Mexico" stamped on it. "Ci-ti-zen-ship! Ci-ti-zen-ship!" shouted one young woman, pumping her flag along as the crowd's rage sizzled....

    Fresh footprints, sightings on residents streets, if you look close enough, the signs are everywhere. "They are not trying to hide or remain concealed anymore," Rio Grande City Police Officer Jose Garcia said. Action 4 News did a ride-along with Rio Grande City Police to see how the immigration surge is affecting residents in the area. Officer Garcia spends more than half of his day tracking down undocumented immigrants. Illegal immigration is nothing new to the border town but has recently become more visible. "People are forgetting that aside from the fact that families and woman are giving themselves up,...

    Since 1999, RINO Rep. Jim Kolbe of Arizona's 8th District has added to "must pass" national security appropriations bills language which shuts down all permanent Border Patrol checkpoints in his district only. He's done this despite the fact that the Border Patrol insists that these checkpoints are key tools in their border security arsenal. He's done this despite that fact that the GAO has released a report that says that shutting down the checkpoints has reduced Border Patrol effectiveness in the Tucson sector by 77%. He's done this, ignoring the outrage of his constituents who live along the border who...

    Guest Opinion: Enforcement, not reform, of immigration laws needed RANDY GRAF Tucson Citizen The Tucson Citizen published a June 6 opinion piece on border policy by U.S. Rep. Jim Kolbe. The irony is so thick, one could cut it with a knife. Mr. Kolbe declared, "We don't need a Band-Aid; we need major surgery." What he failed to tell readers is that he has been prescribing the small bandages all these years. Frankly, we need a new doctor. I have read the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act of 2005, as espoused by Mr. Kolbe and U.S. Sens. John McCain...

    Guest worker proposal raises thorny questions U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas Guest worker programs may sound compassionate or necessary, but the more you look, the more you see problems. No guest worker program should be passed until these questions are answered: 1. Many illegal aliens enter the United States to work. But there is little enforcement of laws that prohibit employers from hiring them. Not a single employer was fined last year for doing so. If current laws are not enforced, how can we expect similar restrictions in a guest worker program to be enforced? 2. If foreign workers are...

The Associated Press LOS ANGELES - Mexican immigrants across the United States celebrated yesterday as lawmakers in Mexico approved a bill that will allow them to vote for the first time from abroad in the country's presidential election. Some expatriates said the new system still excludes many potential voters, particularly illegal immigrants in the United States who lack Mexico's voter registration card and are afraid to leave the country to get it. Still, the new...
