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

Los Angeles Times, by Brian Bennett

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.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry stood behind his decision Sunday to veto giving money to a state agency run by a prosecutor with legal problems, despite an indictment saying he abused his official powers, and ramped up his criticism of the official. Perry told “Fox News Sunday” that he would make the same decision again, as he has said repeatedly. And he urged Americans to look at a video of the prosecutor, Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, being arrested and jailed for driving while intoxicated. “The highest-ranking prosecutor in Travis County was stopped for driving while drunk almost three times over the

Many of us recall the baseless indictment of then House Majority Leader Tom DeLay by then Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle in connection with the indictment of Governor Perry yesterday, but does anyone recall the earlier case against Kay Bailey Hutchison brought by Earle? Earle is the predecessor of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, whose drunk driving escapades initiated the chain of events that has now culminated in Governor Perry’s indictment. Serving as Texas state treasurer, Hutchison won 67 percent of the vote in the special election held on June 5, 1993, to fill the Senate seat that had

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin.

WASHINGTON — In this summer of global tumult, the debate in Washington essentially boils down to two opposite positions: It is all President Obama’s fault, according to his critics; no, it is not, according to his supporters, because these are events beyond his control. Americans often think of their president as an all-powerful figure who can command the tides of history — and presidents have encouraged this image over the years because the perception itself can be a form of power. But as his critics have made the case that Mr. Obama’s mistakes have fueled the turmoil in places like Syria,

Wherever Hillary Clinton is going, she needs at least a Gulfstream G450 to get there. The once nearly “dead broke” former First Lady now makes steep demands when she gives speeches to corporations, groups and universities, according to emails between Clinton’s agent and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where Clinton will earn $225,000 for a 90-minute speech in October. The school received a bit of a break from the $300,000 Clinton requested during initial negotiations, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which obtained the emails that were sent last year. The correspondence showed that Clinton normally requires “round-trip transportation

Irbil, Iraq -- The offensive by ISIS militants against civilians and religious minorities in the northern Iraqi governorate of Nineveh has created a catastrophe. At least 300,000 Yazidis and 100,000 Christians were displaced literally overnight, according to figures provided by the Kurdistan regional government. Many of the Yazidis fled to the mountains on August 3 after Kurdish fighting forces known as Peshmerga, who were protecting them, precipitously withdrew. For the Christians in villages north of Irbil, the moment came in the wee hours of August 7, when the Peshmerga silently pulled out. The thousands of Yazidis who had remained stranded on a

But in the background, a disturbing, larger national conversation has erupted out of the troubles in the St. Louis suburb.

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

This is ridiculous. AUSTIN (KXAN) – A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Perry wanted Lehmberg to resign because she had been busted for drunk driving. It’s not good to have a drunk driver, captured on camera abusing the officers who arrested her, heading up the Public Integrity Unit. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit

Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached.

The scandal that erupted Friday night involved millions of dollars, statehouse power plays—oh yeah, and alcohol, police, and masks. Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted Friday on charges of abuse of power—a first degree felony—and coercion—a third degree felony. The charges stem from a 2013 scandal that has been quietly rumbling in the Lone Star State as Perry has been floated as a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2016. This is a complex case, which might be why it has not made national headlines the way other recent, state-level scandals (like Bridgegate, in New Jersey) have. Below, I have outlined

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.

A grand jury in Travis County, Texas, indicted Governor Rick Perry today. Why? For exercising his constitutional prerogative by threatening to veto, and then vetoing, an appropriation to support the public corruption unit in Travis County’s district attorney’s office. This followed the arrest of the county’s district attorney, Democratic Party activist Rosemary Lehmberg, for drunk driving, after she was found “with an open bottle of vodka in the front passenger seat of her car in a church parking lot in Austin.” Ms. Lehmberg served 45 days in jail.The Travis County district attorney’s office has long been a cesspool of corruption.

Although some Democrats are calling for Texas.

Perry, an expected presidential candidate in 2016, is accused of "abuse of official capacity" and "coercion of [a] public servant" by publicly threatening to zero out a state prosecutor´s funding and then actually doing it. Several pundits, including former Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod, Clinton and Obama administration alum Jonathan Prince, Vox´s Matt Yglesias, and New York magazine´s Jonathan Chait, wrote on Twitter they couldn´t see what
