Obama to Seek Funds to Stem Border
Crossings and Speed Deportations

New York Times, by Julia Preston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/29/2014 6:09:51 AM

President Obama will ask Congress to provide more than $2 billion in new funds to control the surge of illegal Central American migrants at the South Texas border, and to grant broader powers for immigration officials to speed deportations of children caught crossing without their parents, White House officials said on Saturday. Mr. Obama will send a letter on Monday to alert Congress that he will seek an emergency appropriation for rapidly expanding border enforcement actions and humanitarian assistance programs to cope with the influx, which includes record numbers of unaccompanied minors and adults bringing children. The officials gave only

I bet it will be as effective as NAFTA keeping boarder crossing down.

Another ´flip flop.´ He brings them here (to wit, ads run in their countries) then now decides he doesn´t want them? He must be bored again. Good excuse to get the $$ but where will it really go - in his overseas retirement account?

If Congress appropriates the $2+ billion, Obama will surely send it on relocating the illegals across the US. Transportation, housing, clothing, food stamps, medical, dental and similar needs will quickly exhaust the $2+ billion. If House GOP doesn´t approve this welfare payment for the invaders, Obama will use refusal as a club in October to arouse his base.

The $2 billion is a sliver of the true costs of this Obama inspired invasion since "temporary" funding will quickly become permanent welfare funding for hundreds of thousands. Public schools, hospital emergency rooms, police and prisons will all require more money. The only winners in this invasion will be public defenders and those in government unions that get generous overtime.

Left unsaid is the social costs for having these invaders among us. Just the pain & suffering inflicted on Americans by illegals driving drunk will far exceed the $2 billion.

View this $ as another Solyndra: Big hype, no results except failure. And be sure that if Congress is stupid enough to use money instead of enforcement of our laws, that money won´t go where it´s supposed to go.

Defund Obama.

Thanks, #1, for "boarder crossing." Obama really sees this as boarder control. He let´s them in. He jacks up our taxes to pay for it all. Then he uses our dough to move them around...to places like Arizona and Texas that he particularly wants to stick it to.

The Obama Crime Syndicate continues. Pelosi praises it, saying the border must go, with everyone from the Panama Canal up to the Arctic Circle now an undocumented American.

This isn´t just a random invasion, it´s a strategized, funded, and carefully planned redeployment of future Democrats. Trojan Horse II.

Only bullets would stop them from coming and we can´t kill them as they and Obama well know. Democrats have placed us in a spot we can´t get out of. And Pelosi says "we are all Americans".

2 billion is a slush fund to move a few illegals around to red states, but the vast majority will be for filling polling booths with minimum wage paid imaginary voters in key battleground districts. Obama has been running a never ending campaign, always raising money, but the real money comes from tax payers and is laundered through moves like these. Its for the children dontcha know?

Just about all of Obama´s actions have unintended consequences...for the American people. A lot of them are not unintended in his eyes. He only reverses when there is a big outcry, especially from his own lefty constituents. His foresight basically stops at the end of his nose. He is a minor leaguer.

One scam after another. He invites them in and then pretends he wants them out. The border is undefended because of him and the Border Patrol is useless. He is the most crooked President this country has ever had or will have hopefully.

Here is an idea, tell the illegals they will never get Amnesty and will be kicked out of the country as soon as they are located. Housing them in facilities at our expense is insane.

If a Republican ever gets in office as a real President and we ever have majorities in both houses of Congress again, copy the Mexican laws on immigration and ship them all back where they came from. Then stop all aid to Latin American countries until they control their own borders both ways.

Then close all border checkpoints until this problem is solved. Pass laws and enforce them as to companies knowingly hiring illegals. Finally... stick all Dream laws where the sun don´t shine.

what he really needs the money for is to pay off the Mexican pressy the money he promised for allowing the kids to travel thru mexico. everyone knows that NO ONE crosses borders into mexico. that government protects that border. next, he needs some for himself so he isn´t affected by higher taxes to pay for these kids needing housing, food, clothing, schooling, medical, and of course new cell phones. and he probably wants to give himself a bonus for thinking this nasty abuse of children up. and what ever is left he needs for free lawyrs.
now he never asked congress or the American people, for money for the muslim brotherhood. he just took it.. that was 3 billion for them without a whimper from congress. and now he asks...ha that´s a hoot..he has a phone and a pen...why does he bother to ask, he is a dicktator, and does what he wants,

Obama, his crew, the liberal Democrats, some cheap labor Republicans, and the very liberal ethnic and immigrant groups, that are centric to Mexico and Central America, caused this out of control situation and silent invasion of the USA that is underway across the borderline, by continuously talking up a massive amnesty, by disparaging, failing to enforce and undermining the immigration laws, and by praising individual illegal aliens, as they did the other evening with a party for illegal aliens at the White House.

If the Congress goes along with this request for funding there is little doubt that Obama will use it to provide "free" lawyers to defend young illegal aliens and to fund other Obama sponsored "humanitarian" social welfare programs that have nothing to do with enforcing the immigration laws.

People all over the world, including a lot of prospective illegal aliens are waiting and watching to see what Obama´s real response will be to this silent invasion. When it becomes evident to them that Obama is allowing the vast majority of this wave of illegal aliens to stay, and receive all sorts of social welfare benefits, they will travel to the borderline and the next wave illegally crossing the borderline will be much larger and will come from a lot more countries. The liberal Democrats don´t care as they consider the vast majority of illegal aliens to be future Democrat voters in the years ahead.

At the rate this is going, it will not be much longer until there is no United States of Anywhere. The dims will have successfully created, illegally of course, a nation of people with their hands out, waiting for the next freebies. And very soon, there will not be enough workers to provide for all of the freeloaders, and for themselves either. And the entire country will decend into complete anarchy. It´s happened before in the history of mankind, and will happen again. And the Islamic terrorists will see a hugh opportunity to take over a large part of the world. The only thing that can stop this if for the citizens of this country rise up NOW and clean the swamp of DC, and that means EVERYBODY, and begin all over again. The handful of the goodones in DC can be elnlisted to help create the new government. But, it all is up to the average citizen to quit complaining about everything and DO WHAT IS NECESSARY to re-claim our country./rant

Call it what it is. If this were a invasion of hostile adults, they would be met, near the border, by members of our armed forces--National Guards, Marines, Soldier--and supplemental by patriotic "militias.

This is an hostile invasion of children who need medical care, food, clothing, housing, schooling, and social services. How is that rain on our national--and local--treasuries any less destructive to our culture, social fabric and sovereignty than an armed invasion??

Now the Obama crew and the liberal Democrats are talking about Obama starting his own refugee program for the third world, whereby young aliens could go to the US Embassy in their home country, apply for refugee status in the USA as potential victims of violence, or that they are victims of poverty, and then be flown to the USA for resettlement. There would be no numerical limits.

Usually two years after being admitted as a refugee such aliens are granted permanent residence status (green card status) and then five years later are granted US citizenship. If Obama does institute his own refugee program, no doubt it will quickly grow into the hundreds of thousands of "refugees" a year as there are probably a billion poor young aliens living in third world countries all over the world.

This program would eventually destabilize the USA both by cost, and the fact that after five years the liberal Democrats would be picking up hundreds of thousands of new foreign born voters each year, a recipe for further liberalization of the immigration laws to bring in the foreign parents and other foreign relatives of these "refugees".

The Democrats and the liberal media are now blaming G. W. Bush for the out of control situation on the border, as Bush apparently signed a liberal Democrat sponsored law years ago, that the Democrats are claiming makes it very hard for Obama to send all the "kids" back to their home countries, therefore they must be be handled as refugees no matter how many show up at the borderline.

There is no way that many humans from so many locations decided to cross our borders without the ´signal´ from Zippy. Now his bipolar brain tells us he wants it stopped.

Not only are taxpayers on the hook paying for cradle to grave care, he wants to send the countries they left millions, and now another $2 billion.

Shouldn´t somebody pay US ?

For the amount of money spent already, the Wall of China could have been duplicated at that border.

President Barack Obama sent thrills up the collective legs of his supporters (and a few journalists) last week when he quoted Martin Scorsese’s The Departed during a campaign-style event. “I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy,” Obama said, referring to congressional Republicans. “It is lonely me just doing stuff,” the president continued. “I’d love it if the Republican did stuff, too.” It is worth noting that the president resorted to this bravado while he was ignoring calls from members of his party to see the border with his own eyes.

Under the new system, the board, which had previously operated in secret, must notify an applicant if a law enforcement agency lodges a credible objection to his or her application and must give the applicant 10 days to rebut the objection.

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. 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. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

Professor Stephen Hawking is backing the academic boycott of Israel by pulling out of a conference hosted by Israeli president Shimon Peres in Jerusalem as a protest at Israel´s treatment of Palestinians. Hawking, 71, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, had accepted an invitation to headline the fifth annual president´s conference, Facing Tomorrow, in June, which features major international personalities, attracts thousands of participants and this year will celebrate Peres´s 90th birthday. Hawking is in very poor health, but last week he wrote a brief letter to the Israeli president to say he

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

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. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“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.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

While he could have been killed saving "Betty" or saving "Veronica," doing so for Keller was something "that would really resonate

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. 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

President Obama is known for being competitive on the basketball court, but he´s also apparently a cutthroat pool player. Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., told reporters at the National Governors Association meeting on Sunday that the president surprised him by beat him in two consecutive games. To add insult to injury, the two were playing at the Wynkoop Brewing Company, a bar that Hickenlooper co-founded. "You know I´ll tell ya -- the man is a shark," Hickenlooper told reporters, Time reports. "I was up a few balls. I felt pretty good. I was actually wondering whether how hard should I --
