Caged, diseased and desperate: Shocking pictures
of the child illegal immigrants flooding over
the border - as Joe Biden calls for an
´unrelenting stream´ of migrants

Daily Mail [UK], by Ryan Parry

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 6/12/2014 5:53:15 PM

These shocking photos show child immigrants crammed inside cages and tiny rooms at a U.S. Government border facility--further highlighting the humanitarian crisis along America´s border with Mexico. [Snip] Congressman Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, took the photos on his camera phone to highlight the terrible conditions children are being kept in. In one snap, taken during a tour of the Customs and Border Protection facility in South Texas, a large group of immigrants are locked in a wire mesh cage. This comes as the MailOnline learns that overworked border patrol officers struggling to cope with the huge influx are separating

Comments:
Congressman Cuellar (Dem), might we suggest you insist that President Obama (Dem) immediately (now--this minute!) shut down the southern border. After that, you can talk about how to deal with the illegals. And it must not include allowing parents or anybody else in to take care of them. It should only be about getting them back to whence they came.

The photos, the consistent sympathy from all the media anchors, etc. and this was all planned by Obama, LaRaza and Mexico to FORCE their immigration arguments. Megyn a great example last night. We have no southern border now. Where are the Republicans?

Next I expect the courts. ACLU, etc. to get involved.

1) How much authority does the federal government have to lock up these people indefinitely? Is that a form of slavery?

It has been established that crossing the border is not a criminal offense. And if it were, when are the trials?

2) What conditions are they entitled to? What quality of food, shelter, medical care, sanitation, etc. must be provided? Can federal courts decide to supervise the camps; they sure don´t hesitate to run state prisons or city jails?

3) Do international treaties and agreements about the treatment of refugees apply? Why can´t they insist they are refugees? What authority would the UN, et al then have?

4) Is it legal to move them from facility to facility and state to state? Why? How does that differ from kidnapping?

So if I were to cross over into Mexico illegally what kind of reception would I get? I doubt it would include room and board, except maybe in prison...

Most of the "children" look like young men of an age old enough for military service (17+). And why not? they are essentially an invading army.

#10, That is the question that no one in the media is asking. Did those kids walk hundreds if not thousands of miles? If so, where was the Mexican government? They do not treat illegals very well and I can´t imagine them welcoming them into Mexico. That only leaves the only logical conclusion. They were picked up at the southern Mexico border and shipped up here with the Mexican government´s assistance. Can some please define the word, invasion?

The problem actually starts in Latin America and stems from a really bad foreign policy on the US´s part. The question is why are conditions so bad in Latin America that it makes people desperate enough to put their lives in the hands of "coyotes." The countries with the worst economies in Latin America all seem to have socialists, left wing,and/or communists dictators that the Obambaites just love. Sandanistas, Chavez types, Kichner,and a batch of others.

These people were invited here by Big Government ReDems.
They are packed into "resettlement" centers with
with no beds provided by Big Government
with no privacy provided by Big Government,
with no security provided by Big Government,
no medical treatment provided by Big Government,
and poison food provided by Big Government.

And the Red Communist Democrats think
they´re all going to become
Big Government Socialist democrats.

Sounds like nobody thought this one through either.

This is all scripted by both the democrat and Republican party leadership. The Republican Establishment knows it will never convince its conservative base to agree to "Immigration Reform". Every argument it has brought up in its defense has easily been slapped away as nonsense. So the only thing left is to allow Obama to generate a "crisis" using children as human shields to hide behind once it delivers what Wall Street and the Chamber of Commerce bought them for.

A teary eyed John Boehner will announce that the Republican Party just cannot sit idle as the little children of Mexico suffer and will be voting with the democrats because...

Its for the children.

They really do think YOU are that stupid.

#14, a Mexican consul who was at one of the holding areas made a remark that was quickly and widely distributed by the press yesterday. He said that the eggs in the burritos were cold and made the children sick and they were throwing them in the trash.

Come on, now! I´ve eaten cold breakfast burritos in a pinch and they´re not that bad. And if those kids are complaining about cold breakfast burritos, what are they eating back in their home towns? Wagyu beef tacos? Lobster fajitas? What? Do you see any scraggly little children? They look fairly well fed to me.

This is all too contrived and whoever is involved has conned the parents big time. I refuse to wax dewy eyed over these children. Yes, it´s child neglect; yes, it´s a felony involving poor, unsuspecting children--but the organizers MEANT it to be that way. They have no concern for the kids. And if they do, why do Mexican authorities permit 8-year olds to climb on cross-border buses at midnight to sing for pesos at every bus stop? Why are children begging in the streets of Acapulco and Mexico City, dressed in clothes stiff and dark with dirt? Been there, seen that. This huge and terrifying drain on what bit of money is left in the Treasury must be stopped NOW.

The House controls the purse strings, they need to rescind all funds remaining in 0bama´s vacation account, and restrict access to Air Force One...those funds will help pay for the criminal alien invaders.

Put 0bama on a strict budget...let him submit a written request for anything that costs more than $50.

I read several days ago that a US Border Patrol official asked many of the women he was processing why they decided to suddenly come to the US, now?

She replied that the radio stations are saying that all women and children who come to the US will not be turned away.

In the article, the questions was asked, ´Is the US State Department behind this sudden, mass immigration?´

US Taxpayers will be stuck paying for each persons welfare checks, housing, education, medical costs, and food stamps.

This is what our elected officials have done to us.

John McCain is all over TV the last couple of days over this Iraq deal. Arizona is supposedly the state he represents and it´s crickets from him. Jeff Flake is nowhere to be seen either. Flake comes from a ranching family, and he could care less about the ranchers (his constituents!!) on the border whose lives are in danger from the drug traffickers and criminals streaming across the border.

While I´m at it....the Phoenix VA is ground zero for vets dying at the hands of the government, and where is McCain? McCain thinks his real constituents are the anchors on MSNBC.

This is no humanitarian crisis, it´s a political stunt. No one asks and no one explains how 50000 central american children reached the US border. Mexico has the harshest immigration laws in this hemispere. Their government operations are based on bribes. So, unless mexico recieved a substantial payoff, there is no way they´d allow mass crossings at their southern border. In videos at the Arizona busstop, the "children" appeared to be scrubbed and relatively well dressed. So are we supposed to believe they traversed mexico on foot? obama counts on capitulation by states chosen as depositories for the illegals. And zero won´t stop until Brewer or another governor refuses the invasion. Then we´d find out if obama has the stomach for a confrontation.

Just another day, and another spectacular idea Obama and Biden came up with - with horrendous results.

Obama is a vengeful man and appears to be doing this to punish the country, since no Amnesty Bill has been finalized. He certainly knows how to ´get back´ at us. Does he care about the suffering and hardship on these children, the border agents and so many more who are affected? I seriously doubt it.

I agree that Megyn Kelly going with the emotional take on this is out of order. She said,"look, look at that little face" with a desperate voice. If you can´t look at this as our southern border being invaded because you are a mother, then go home, Megyn. Send them home to their border. Don´t buy mattresses and supplies to settle in. Send them home by bus, plane or train but no more. Biden is a simpleton. The adverse effect on the economies in these communities, economically and more is gigantic and our president and vpresident are, once again, on the moon, totally removed from reality. This is a serious crisis. And, how do we know there are not Islamists in the pile? We don´t.

This is all political. Just about every one of those illegal aliens is a poor and generally uneducated person, just the class of people who are disposed to become Democrat voters, and espouse socialist related big government policies and welfare programs once legalized and made eligible to vote. Obama through the many very liberal ethnic and immigrant advocacy groups that are connected in the White House, Mexico and Central America is suttley orcastrating this mass migration of unaccompanied illegal alien children and young adults to make a point that he will not enforce the immigration laws until the wimpy Republicans cave and give him the political cover to pass a massive liberal Democrat designed amnesty, that is sure to generate tens of millions of new foreign born Democrat voters in the years ahead, that would permanently change the voter demographics in many regions of the USA thus driving the Republicans and any conservative agenda that survives into political oblivion. There is no way that such a large illegal migration of unaccompanied Central American children could transit Mexico to the US border without the Mexican authorities ignoring it, they would do that only if the Obama crew assured the Mexicans that all those children would be allowed to cross into the USA and would not be stuck in Mexico.

Does anyone else remember when all of Central and South America were democratic countries? People aren´t generally oppressed there. They have been invaded by the likes of what is trampling the Middle East this very minute.
Those invaders have managed to stream into here and the results, while not visible now, will be devastating. This spillover of precious little chill´run (sarcasm) is just the tip of the iceberg being financed by Uncle Sugar. Follow the money!
Vote like our Republic depends upon it!

The front man for Rome, top ranking Jesuit, VP Joseph Biden, is the very serious committed Catholic, alien invasion promoting, representative of the Pope !

Government employee, Biden is the chief official propagandist foe Federal lies and indoctrination.
Like Boehner, Cantor, Rubio, our VP Biden is strangely
the spokesperson for continuing this insanity.

Has any reporter shown the heavy support by the unanimously supportive Church, giving aid to these HUMAN SHIELDS.

Just when you thought you´d seen Hussein´s most despicable act, his organization of criminals, throws all these very non Indio looking kids, IN FRONT OF THE BUS !

The White House IS the crime scene, it IS a criminal enterprise, arrests should be made, a yellow crime tape should be posted around the White House and all the occupants must be arrested, and put into the same crude warehousing as these kids now suffer !

If Obama was on the up and up on this issue he would call in the ambassadors of the countries where all these illegal alien children come from and arrange for those countries to take custody of all those children and remove them back home. Since he is not doing that it is clear that Obama welcomes this silent invasion of illegal aliens in order to cow the wimpy Republicans into caving and giving him the political cover to pass a massive amnesty that is sure to supply the Democrats with tens of millions of new foreign born voters in the years ahead. Remember when you pass a liberal Democrat amnesty it will include just about all the illegal aliens here now, realistically about 20 million people, plus all their foreign relatives who would then get to come here, easily another 20 million people. If 85% of them eventually become Democrat voters, as happened after past much smaller amnesties, the Republicans would be mathematically unable to win future presidential elections and the liberal Democrats would be the permanent federal government in this country.

I feel sorry for these kids, mostly because they are being used as political fodder by Obama. This was all planned to give him some semblance of reason to issue an illegal Executive Order to pardon all of the border crossing criminals.

The Mexican government is part and party to this invasion, and as such should be considered as an invading country. Close all of the incoming checkpoints and stop all trade between our two countries until the Mexican government guards their own borders to stop the one way conflict.

Again, Obama the Pretender should be impeached ASAP. Look at what is happening in Iraq right this minute. It is all planned. Anything he touches is anti USA.

Can we talk about impeachment and/or arrest yet? Those illegals would never have crossed the border without full U.S. Government compliance. This is also known as treason. The fruitbat from kenya has broken so many laws that he at least qualifies for Leavenworth but a more fitting place would be Gitmo with the rest of the muslim radicals.

Why don´t we just transport these kids from our southern border to our northern border---just as Mexico did? Since nobody seems to be blaming the Mexicans, I guess what they did is acceptable. And...Canada is a humanitarian country just as we are. So surely these kids would be welcome in Canada with full government support.
The fact that Obama DIDN´T ask for help from other "humanitarian" nations confirms exactly what some of my fellow L-Dotters say: At the core, this is an Obama political play.

Obama the Despicable Tyrant uses children for whom he cares nothing in order to further his twisted political plots to destroy America. I would like to see the governors of the border states load all these people on the biggest planes we have and return them to their countries of origin. I think enough US citizens would happily chip in to be rid of this invasion in the quickest possible time and let the border patrol get back to their job of policing the border instead of being diverted to be nannies to illegal kids.
What better timing for the jihadists to infiltrate our country?

The number of Americans who see illegal immigration as the nation´s most pressing problem has spiked from 3 per cent to 17 percent since May, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That percentage now tops government corruption, the U.S. economy, jobs, health care and every other hot-button issue, driven by a flood of tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border. When Gallup announced the results of the same poll in two months age, ´immigration´ and ´illegal aliens´ ranked eleventh out of 47 issues, attracting a deep level of worry from fewer Americans than those

The surge of thousands of unaccompanied children illegally crossing the border from Mexico is being fueled by misperceptions about U.S. immigration policy rather than growing violence in Central American, according to a leaked report. [Snip] The organization focuses on the collection and distribution of tactical intelligence concerning the southwest border and is run jointly by the Drug Enforcement Administration and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. ‘Of the 230 migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos to UAC (unaccompanied children) and adult females

The White House refused to comply today with a subpoena issued by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee demanding that the president´s official political adviser testify before Congress. The president´s Director of the Office of Political Strategy & Outreach, David Simas, was scheduled to appear before the Oversight committee today to state for the record that his work does not violate a federal law that bans most executive branch employees from engaging in political activity. But White House Counsel W. Neil Eggleston sent a letter to the committee last night saying Congress doesn´t have the authority to require the president´s chief

A Swedish court has ruled that an arrest warrant against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on charges of sexual assault will stay in place. Mr Assange, who denies the allegations, has sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London for the past two years to avoid extradition. If he is sent to Sweden, he says he fears charges in the US over the leaking of secret government documents. [Snip] "All in all, the district court makes the assessment that the reasons for the arrest warrant offset the infringement and adverse effects the measure entails for Julian Assange," Judge Lena Egelin said.

Dozens of protesters on both sides of the immigration debate showed up in a small town near Tucson on Tuesday after the sheriff said the federal government plans to transport about 40 immigrant children to an academy for troubled youths - but the kids never arrived. The rallies demonstrated the deep divide of the immigration debate. One group waved American flags, held signs that read ´Return to Sender´ and ´Go home non-Yankees´ and said they would block a bus that was supposed to arrive with immigrant children aboard. It turned heated at times, with shouting matches and a group of

Britain is to build the first spaceport outside of America by the year 2018, the government has announced. The facility will eventually enable tourists to take commercial flights to Australia in just two hours, but before that it will be used to launch British satellites. The government announced at Farnborough International Airshow that it has narrowed down the shortlist of sites to six in Scotland, one in Cornwall and one in Wales.[Snip] Space already makes the UK economy £11bn with everything from car navigation systems, to Sky TV to Satellite broadband for rural areas.

Hamas initially rejected the truce but an official later told the BBC it would consider a political solution.

People who are most concerned about climate change use more electricity than those who believe it to be not so serious a threat, a government study has found. The Household Electricity Survey, commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, said that this discrepancy may be due to the fact that older people, who are most likely to not see climate change as a threat, are generally more frugal with their energy consumption: [Snip] However, even with over-65s removed, there is still only a weak trend suggesting that people who profess to care about the environment actually do more

The first Israeli was killed by a missile fired from Gaza on Tuesday night setting the week-long conflict on course for an even bloodier new phase with Israel poised to escalate its military offensive. A 38-year-old man was pronounced death at Askelon´s Barzilai medical centre after suffering severe shrapnel wounds from a missile fired on Tuesday afternoon, according to initial Israeli media reports. The reports suggested he was an ultra-Orthodox rabbi distributing food to Israeli soldiers near the Erez border crossing into Gaza.

Pope Francis has called for ´urgent intervention´ to welcome and protect minors traveling on their own from Central and South America to the United States in increasing numbers. The pontiff said today that such measures should include an information campaign on the dangers of the journey. He called on the international community to rise to the challenge and adopt ´new forms of legal and safe migration.´ Tens of thousands of children have streamed from chaotic Central American nations in recent months to the U.S. border, overwhelming the government´s ability to respond.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
