Texans Organize Rescue Posse
for Children from Border Crisis

Breitbart Texas, by Brandon Darby

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/14/2014 12:34:11 PM

HOUSTON, Texas—The bodies of illegal immigrants are routinely found dead near Falfurrias, Texas in Brooks County. Texas citizens and the local sheriff are organizing a ‘rescue posse’ to make sure the thousands of children illegally crossing the Texas border with Mexico are not dying in the area. Though Falfurrias sits approximately 85 miles from the border, there is a notorious Border Patrol checkpoint in the area and illegal immigrants routinely exit vehicles before the checkpoint and attempt to circumvent law enforcement efforts. The terrain and the heat often prove too much for the travelers and their bodies are often found

I understand the humanitarian urge to prevent needless death. Really.
At the same time, one recognizes that bad behavior carries risks and consequences. INVASION of another nation is, generally, accounted as an Act of War against that nation. (and, aiding in such an Act of War constitutes Treason). They are not immigrants, they are invaders, and as such in most lands are subject to being shot without warning. Why did we stop?
The citizens of these United States did nothing whatever to encourage this lawlessness. And while I do not wish the death of these people, the taxpayers here owe them precisely nothing.
Send them back home. This is not home, And never will be if I have anything to say about it.
And is anyone else just a bit miffed about the phrase "notorious Border Patrol station"? This is not "law enforcement", this is national security, a Defense Department matter in fact. Land mines are an appropriate partial remedy.

This doesn´t get enough attention. When you lure people to come here like Obama is doing many die. Women and children die in the desert. Here in southern AZ they usually find about 150 a year who have died in the attempt. It´s another reason to secure the border. If they know they can´t get in, they won´t die trying.

What Obama is doing v the children is criminal. Someday he will have to answer for this. What is he doing today while everything is coming apart at the seams? Playing golf and raising money on our dime.

Imagine...all of those dumb, redneck, racist, Texans volunteering to put politics aside, go out in the desert heat to rescue women and children.

Didn´t they know a simple "Hashtag" would have solved the problem?

I hope that they allow Louis Gutierrez and the Hollywood "stars" rushing to give aid to join in the fun.

According to the National Catholic Register, a newly opened Catholic Charities facility in McAllen, TX, is assisting.

Children from Mexico and Central America arrive at the bus station in tattered clothing they’ve worn for weeks. They’re unshowered, hungry and scared. Boys and girls as young as 3 cry out for Mommy, Daddy or Grandma. (snip) The center resulted after a handful of Catholic women took initiative to provide for the children’s immediate needs by showing up with supplies.

Catholic Relief Services is also working along the border to provide assistance for the children.

I´ve said it before. These Central America illegals are being aided in their journey through Mexico, probably by the Mexican government in agreement with Obama. Normally migrants into Mexico are arrested and sent back. It is beyond comprehension that so many are able to make their way across Mexico and its drug lords to our borders without incident.

This is where the Attorney General of Texas investigates whether there is any Federal involvement and start indicting real Americans for child endangerment, at the least. And if there are any officials aiding and abetting this, right up to POTUS, indict them all. This is shameful, illegal behavior and it´s being orchestrated by someone somewhere. If the Texas AG isn´t up to it, Gov. Rick Perry can perhaps force his hand a bit. BTW: Has Perry been seen anywhere near the border in recent times to decry this? I hear the Rio Grande Valley is being overrun. I must´ve missed his visit there.

It must be an election year - which could worry one political party in particular. Vice President Joe Biden himself is among the Democratic heavyweights who will attend Netroots Nation, which begins on Thursday in Detroit and is billed as “the largest gathering of progressives and the Democratic activist base” by organizers.

Fort Worth, TX - Seven teachers and school administrators are undergoing firearms training in Fort Worth so they can have access to guns on campus. The first class of school marshals began training Monday in an 80-hour program at Tarrant County College´s Northwest campus. The nine-day course will cover gun use, violence prevention and active-shooter scenarios. The state legislature created the new class of law enforcement last year through the Protection of Texas Children Act, sponsored by state Rep. Jason Villalba. The Dallas Republican said the marshals will protect schools against violent attacks similar to the 2012 shooting at the Sandy

On Tuesday morning, NBC’s Today refused to cover the latest news in the Veterans Affairs scandal as the House Veterans Affairs Committee heard testimony Monday night from additional whistle-blowers who faced punishment from superiors for identifying allegedly manipulated response times for veterans who filed benefit and disability claims. Coverage of the latest news saw only two minutes and 26 seconds of air time total with only 23 seconds of that from ABC’s Good Morning America.

House GOP linking trafficking
law changes to Obama border bill
The Hill (Washington DC), by Cristina Marcos & Peter Schroeder    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/15/2014 12:57:31 PM     Post Reply
House GOP leaders on Tuesday said they will insist that changes to a human trafficking law be included in any legislation responding to the wave of child immigrants crossing the border. Republicans have blamed the influx of children at the border on the 2008 law, which they say has served as an incentive for people to enter the United States. The law allows minors entering the country from Central America, but not Mexico, to request asylum hearings. President Obama has asked for $3.7 billion in emergency supplemental appropriations to care for people crossing the border, and to hire more judges

HOUSTON — Shell Oil Co. today announced an offshore discovery in the Gulf of Mexico it believes contains 100 million barrels of oil equivalent. The discovery was made about 75 miles offshore in the eastern portion of the Gulf in water that’s nearly 7,500 feet deep. The find marks the third major discovery for Shell in an area known as the Norphlet play, where the company has been exploring for more than a decade.

Jose Antonio Vargas, journalist, immigration activist and America’s most famous undocumented immigrant, has been detained at the airport in McAllen, Texas, according to his nonproft, Define American. The Pulitzer-winning journalist is being held at a detention center at the airport after attempting to fly out of the city. Vargas was in town to document what’s going on in the shelters for young migrants who have flooded the border. He told me this weekend, in an interview Sunday, that because he has traveled so extensively throughout the country, including on the border in California, he didn’t recognize that travel in McAllen

“So far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked every serious idea to strengthen the middle class.” –President Obama, weekly address, July 12, 2014 ~This has become a standard line in the president’s oratory, as part of making his case that he’s “acted this year to help working Americans on my own– when Congress won’t act.” The president started on this path on June 27, during a speech in Minnesota: “You know, sometimes I’m forcibly, you know, politic about how I say things, but I’m finding lately that I just want to say what’s on my mind.

In the beginning of the 2009 flu season, Barack Obama declared the H1N1 swine flu a national emergency. By October of that year 1,000 people had already died, and according to the president there was the threat of a pandemic. In order to hasten treatment and convince Americans to line up like lemmings for a flu shot, Obama gave former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius a one-time authorization to bypass standard federal regulations to quickly respond to the outbreak. The president repeatedly warned the public that a pandemic was approaching, and that the numbers of people getting sick

Protests from local elected officials in Maryland this weekend forced the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) to cancel its plans to send illegal immigrant children to an Army Reserve center in Westminster, which is about 35 miles from Baltimore. Maryland Democrat Gov. Martin O´Malley said illegal immigrant children flooding across the border should be considered "refugees" and all be given asylum status, but after Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) publicized the federal government´s last-minute plans to sneak illegal immigrant children into Maryland, there was considerable blowback. HHS backed off, citing things like insufficient access to drinking water at the facility.

The unprecedented shipment of illegal immigrants from Texas to Massachusetts is not only straining the resources of local jails, it is costing taxpayers millions of dollars for health care, the Bristol County sheriff said yesterday. At least one illegal immigrant — brought to Massachusetts from Texas by Immigration and Customs Enforcement — is in a hospital with 24-hour surveillance, according to Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson, who is responsible for holding about 80 adults who are awaiting deportation. “We have two officers, around the clock, at the hospital taking care of this person, and that’s one bill. Due to

With Hamas’ decision to begin firing hundreds of rockets into Israel, precipitating Israeli action to stop that rocket fire, anti-Jew sentiment has now exploded full-force onto the public scene.

Such evil has now shown its ugly face around the world. Here are the latest incidents across the globe against Jews, utilizing Israel’s defensive activities as an excuse: Los Angeles.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.

Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this.
