Deportation data won´t dispel rumors
drawing migrant minors to U.S.

Los Angeles Times, by Brian Bennett

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/7/2014 5:39:48 AM

President Obama and his aides have repeatedly sought to dispel the rumors driving thousands of children and teens from Central America to cross the U.S. border each month with the expectation they will be given a permiso and allowed to stay. But under the Obama administration, those reports have proved increasingly true. The number of immigrants under 18 who were deported or turned away at ports of entry fell from 8,143 in 2008, the last year of the George W. Bush administration, to 1,669 last year, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement data released under a Freedom of Information Act request. Similarly, about

It appears Congress is as much at fault for this invasion as Bush and Obama. They passed a law last year allowing alien minors to stay in our country, but " didn´t anticipate this reaction."

I was always part of the plan. The GOP never sees what´s coming down the road with the seemingly benign lefty bills.

There´s a solution...but it will anger the source of campaign money for the Establishment Republicans...close the border.

Just simply close it down.

The solution is simple. Put the national guard/military on the border and shut it down. That stops the influx. The people we have elected to office both Republican and Democrat are to blame for the opportunity that our evil president exploited. The parties are too afraid of the backlash from Hispanics to follow our immigration laws. Now Obama has created a crisis by seizing on the fact that we are too weak to insist the law be enforced. Who are the winners and losers in this charade? The democrats will get the credit for being compassionate and gain many voters. The Republicans will get the slave labor they want. The American taxpayer will literally pay the price of betrayal by both parties. As usual, the American taxpayer is the loser all the way around.

The change in the immigration laws that took place under the G.W. Bush era liberalizing the immigration laws regarding young illegal aliens was designed by the very liberal ethnic and immigrant advocacy groups and other special interests, was supported and passed through the Congress by the liberal Democrats, and of course with the Republicans as usual just going along to get along. Now when you read articles in the media concerning why the USA is defenseless in being able to repatriate the tens of thousands of young illegal aliens who are walking across the borderline and surrendering to the border patrol, the media is making G. W. Bush, the compassionate conservative, the sad sack in all this.

There are clearly a couple of hundred million young aliens living in foreign countries today where poverty is prevalent who are exposed to violent cultures, and as it is now, if they all somehow appeared at the US border, the US Government would be defenseless in attempting to turn them away and would have to allow them into the USA. Congress should immediately change that law and bring young illegal aliens back under the enforcement and removal provisions of the regular immigration laws. The problem now is that Obama and the liberal Democrats will oppose any such change, as they are using this G. W. Bush era liberalization of the immigration laws to build up underclass minority groups throughout the USA that are the liberal Democrat´s natural future voter base.

As long as the liberal Democrats design US immigration laws and policies with the Republicans going along for the ride the illegal alien situation will only get worse, as Obama gets money from the Congress to hire lawyers to defend illegal aliens making mass uncontrolled illegal immigration a cash cow for leftist immigration lawyers.

How much are the parents of these children being promised or given to just put them on buses and send them to another country? The U.S. taxpayers are being fleeced multiple times in this amnesty scheme.

Riot squads are being sent to the cities that resist allowing the aliens to be dumped off. The shooting will begin soon, be prepared.

Some of the liberal Democrats are attempting to get the out of control illegal alien situation along the borderline classified as a humanitarian refugee crisis. If they succeed in doing that, it will be Katy bar the door, because all those "refugees" will be given a legal immigration status in the USA, and will gain the right to bring their entire foreign families here for "family reunification" purposes.

This is just another liberal Democrat designed amnesty to enlarge the underclass minority group population numbers throughout the USA who will always for the most part be dependent upon government assistance programs to survive in this country, since the vast majority are poor and generally uneducated people, most of who will always be low wage earners if they can even find jobs. Those people would be natural Democrat voters in the future and that is the big liberal Democrat objective in encouraging the ongoing silent invasion of the USA.

i have a young friend who came here illegally from uganda. while i won´t tell her story here, i will say it was compelling and she sought refuge from a terrible place (15 years ago). she worked at a number of very low level and poor paying jobs where there was tacit understanding that she was here illegally, hence, they paid her less than the minimum wage. she did everything in her power to become legal and finally succeeded in getting a green card. she has told me that she cannot (and would not) go on welfare for 5 years because if she does, she will not get citizenship. my point in all of this is, how can all the illegals that are coming across (the adult ones) go on and stay on welfare and then become citizens? is my friend wrong or is there yet another accommodation being made for the illegals?

#16. There are all sorts of public charge waivers built into the law for illegal alien children. They can receive welfare benefits today, and then gain US citizenship tomorrow. In many cases US citizenship is virtually automatic for alien children.

No problem, and if Obama heard that there were a hundred such alien children in that same boat, and he could somehow make some political hay out of that, he would invite them to the White House, praise them and the adults with who they are related along with the local welfare workers for seeing that the children got all the welfare benefits that they could get.

"Immigration Rights": What Are They?

While Joe Biden was exhorting Detroiters to “take back America,” presumably from Barack Obama and himself, the president also expounded on the meaning of Labor Day. His themes were tiresomely familiar–we are the good guys, Republicans are the bad guys–but one interesting feature was his reference to “immigration rights.” This passage laid the groundwork: When unions and CEOs, when law enforcement and the evangelical community, when folks who usually don’t agree on anything agree that we should be fixing our broken immigration system, but the Republicans in the House of Representatives have been sitting on a bill for more than a

Only four hours west of Washington, there is a town where cell phones and wireless Internet are outlawed. Commercial radios are banned, and microwaves aren´t welcome either. Green Bank might sound like a Luddite´s dreamscape, but the West Virginia hamlet´s self-imposed blackout is being done all in the name of science: Green Bank is home to the world´s largest radio telescope, a 100-meters-in-diameter dish that is the crown jewel of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. By measuring radio waves emitted from objects in space, the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope can go where optical telescopes can´t. It lets scientists "see" parts

Twoo online fundraising pages that raised more than $400,000 for the police officer who killed an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Mo., were shut down this weekend so tax lawyers could decide how best to handle the money, an official told the Los Angeles Times. Mystery has surrounded the pages on the crowdsourced fundraising site GoFundMe since Saturday, when both were suspended by their creators without an explanatory note to donors. And some mystery persisted Monday night. "Support Officer Darren Wilson" and "Support Officer Wilson" -- two separate pages with similar names -- raised $235,750 and $197,620, respectively, for the Ferguson police

Clad in a green and red kilt, with an eagle feather in his cap and a ceremonial dagger protruding from his right sock, Leo Barclay said the only certainty was that his country faced an historic crossroads. Next month, Scots will go to the polls to decide if they should end their political union with the United Kingdom and become an entirely self-governing nation.

There’s chatter, and there’s chatter, and only a trained intelligence ear can tell the difference. The trained ears are trying now to determine what to make of the chatter about a new attack on the United States, here or abroad and perhaps coordinated by the Islamic State (usually called ISIS). If there’s anything to the chatter (and sometimes there is), we may soon be treated to what happens when Barack Obama employs his famous tactic of “leading from behind.” We have to call it a tactic and not a strategy, since the president says he doesn’t have a strategy.

Late last month, as the Rev.

Antonio should be in school this week; instead, he’s six feet under — almost exactly a year after Sharpton pledged to rent an apartment on the Windy City’s West Side, spend two days a week walking children to school and lead a high-profile challenge to Chicago’s young black men to end that city’s horrific black-on-black

The elusive ´It factor´

Like it or not, this truism is very true: Being president in the modern era requires a certain "It Factor." You don´t need star power to make it to the U.S. Senate, or to rise in its leadership. (Looking at you, Senators Reid and McConnell.) You don´t need an almost celebrity-like sexiness to succeed in the House. (Who among us would describe Steny Hoyer or Steve Scalise in such terms?) But when we´re talking about the presidency, it´s not enough these days to be a highly intelligent lawmaker with a history of policy expertise and success. You´ve got to have charisma.

Washington - President Barack Obama formally notified the U.S. Congress on Monday that he had authorized air strikes and humanitarian airdrops over the weekend in the Iraqi Shi’ite town of Amerli where Islamic State militants had trapped the civilian population. Iraqi security forces backed by Shi´ite militias on Sunday broke the two-month siege of Amerli and entered the northern town after the U.S. military carried out air strikes on militant positions and delivered emergency supplies to residents there.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August.

Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended
