  • Dems Wrong: 2008 Law Does Not Allow Alien Child Invasion

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | July 25, 2014 | IIBD EDITORIALS
    Border Crisis: A new report shows the vast majority of unaccompanied minors aren't unaccompanied at all, have family members inside the U.S., are not victims of human trafficking and thus can be deported immediately. Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois and other Democrats have repeatedly made the argument that Republicans shouldn't complain about the current border invasion since it was a 2008 law that automatically entitles minors from noncontiguous countries to asylum hearings before they face deportation. Gutierrez and his liberal colleagues in Congress and the media should read the law to find out what's in it. As the Center for...

    President Barack Obama was meeting with Central American leaders Friday to urge them to help slow the exodus of unaccompanied children from their countries, as House Republicans tried to get behind a solution to the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. GOP lawmakers said Friday they were attempting to coalesce around a narrow package of changes including sending National Guard troops to the border, increasing the number of immigration judges, and changing the law so that migrant youths arriving by the tens of thousands can be sent home more quickly. The package would cost less than $1 billion, several lawmakers said,...

    Why isn't Mexico doing more to deter unaccompanied minors from Central America from traversing Mexico to cross the U.S.-Mexico border? If this is a humanitarian crisis, then shouldn't Mexico be taking in its neighbors? Mexico's secretary of foreign affairs, Jose Antonio Meade, met with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board Tuesday, so I had a chance to ask him. His answer was instructive: Mexico offers health services for migrants passing through the country, he said, but when Mexican officials "find an unaccompanied minor within Mexico, he doesn't want to stay in Mexico." And: "At the core of the child's interest...

    <p>The US government, which has refused to act decisively to control the horde of children entering the US via Mexico from Central America (estimated to be nearly 60,000 from October 2013 to June 2014) certainly had no compunctions about expelling a helpless child back to terrible conditions in the case of Elian Gonzalez back in 1999 during the Clinton regime.  In that case, the Feds were wrong to send a child back to a communist dictatorship, where he lives today, a member of the Union of Young Communists, propagandist for the regime, and personal “friend” of Fidel Castro.</p>

    In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, co-author and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush argued that it was important to send the majority of the 50,000 unaccompanied minors back home. Except for those deserving few who may demonstrate true cause for asylum or protection from sex trafficking, these children must be returned to their homes in Central America, he wrote in the op-ed, which was co-authored by Clint Bolick. Bush argued that the 2008 anti-trafficking law - allowing children to stay in the country - should be changed to help stop the flow of children crossing the border, who then claim...

Last year marked the first time in 22 years that more undocumented immigrants were detained at the Texas border than the Arizona border despite the influx of unaccompanied Central American children attempting to cross. "Crossing in this area has diminished quite a lot in the past 10 years," Alejandro Martinez, Border Patrol chief in Douglas, Arizona, said.

    GENEVA, July 23 (Reuters) - The United Nations on Wednesday launched an international inquiry into human rights violations and crimes that may have been committed by Israel during its military offensive in the Gaza Strip. The U.N.

    If conscious thinking Americans have followed the news over the last three months, they would have read, or at least heard about two stories involving two American servicemen who were, in one manner or another, captured and held in foreign countries. However, the similarities of those apprehensions end right there. Sgt.

Andrew Tahmooressi, who was recently honorably discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps, was apprehended by Mexican authorities this past March for mistakenly crossing into...

    In a recent confrontation between protesters against the illegal flood of unaccompanied children into the United States and counter-protests by some Hispanic group, one man from the latter group said angrily, "We are as good as you are!" One of the things that make the history of clashes over race or ethnicity such a history of tragedies around the world is that regardless of whatever particular issue sets off these clashes many people see the ultimate stakes as their worth as human beings. On that, there is no room for compromise, but only polarization. That is why playing...

    Crime: A core constituency asks: If the president is concerned about unaccompanied children from Guatemala fleeing deplorable conditions and violence, what about fatherless children here burdened by gang violence with nowhere to flee? Some 748 of the unaccompanied children from Central America have found their way to the Chicago area, Fox News reports, far from our open border and virtually unannounced to local residents or their political leaders who are unaware of exactly where the children were sent or being kept. Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., told Fox last Friday that he was unaware of the exact locations of the facilities...

    Migrants from everywhere, entrenched along the rail ties. Far away from where they come, further away from where they go, singer Eddie Ganz croons in Spanish over the Caribbean beat of the marimba, a wooden xylophone-like instrument from Guatemala. They call her the Beast from the South, this wretched train of death. With the devil in the boiler, whistles, roars, twists and turns.

    Harry Devert left a job as a trader in finance to take a transcontinental motorcycle journey from the United States to Latin America. Six months ago, he vanished after sending his girlfriend in New York an ominous text message from a troubled region in Mexico, about being escorted from "an area too dangerous for me to be." Mexican authorities, acting on tips, on Thursday located his green Kawasaki motorcycle in a shallow grave in the state of Guerrero, along with the badly decomposed remains of a man in two plastic bags, said Darren Del Sardo, an attorney for Devert's mother....

    Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States.

Is he kidding?  Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care?...

She's not afraid of doing photo-ops. She's not afraid of doing theater. She showed up. Oh, speaking of that, we ended the program yesterday, we had a woman call and wanted to know how in the world all of these kids from El Salvador and Guatemala and Ecuador made it through the Southern Mexico border with no problem whatsoever. And of course her theory was that there...
