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.

It all started with Rome´s Propigator (propagandist), telling all Catholic peasants, "there are no borders", and, wherever you go, you´ll receive Church Sanctuary. Add to that, America´s wide open sanctuary cities, government welfare, food stamps, disability, housing, public schools, medical extravaganza (better than for American citizens) and you have the makings of an alien invasion gold rush.

Follow the money. Where did all the coyotes, buses, trains,
chartered planes, come from in both Mexico and all along the stateside border cities ? Tremendous cooperation between the socialist Church and our socialist governments, federal, state and local. All overseen and "organized by the puppet in chief and his new world order corporate handlers
What a team !
The railroading of America, thousands of children run over, abused and molested. This tide turning, crime filled, border
incident involving many wealthy and influential "elite" (scum
actually).

Hushed, determined Israel

Times of Israel, by David Horovitz    Original Article

There’s a kind of hush over Israel at the moment. The streets are emptier; the cars are honking less; cafes are not deserted but they’re quieter; young kids’ laughter in the little park near our office rings out startlingly loud and carefree. We’re a nation glued to the news — to the TV, the radio, the internet. And it’s almost unremittingly grim. Just a few days ago, we were worrying about hundreds of rockets hitting all over Israel, and shaking our heads at the mini-miracle of Iron Dome intercepting most of them. Now it’s the residents of the kibbutzim and

The Emergency Committee for Israel has just released a statement in response to President Obama´s call for a cease-fire in Gaza."Israel does not need a mediator. Israel needs an ally," reads the statement. "Pressuring Israel to agree to a cease-fire that rescues Hamas from defeat and leaves it in possession of its missiles, tunnels, and terror infrastructure is foolish and wrong. If President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry want to advance the cause of peace in the Middle East, they should support Israel and its campaign to end the terror threat from Gaza."

When asked just how vulnerable former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is to a challenge from her left, the Acela Corridor’s political class is quick to note that 2016 is not 2008. They observe that the factors which made Clinton vulnerable to a challenge from then Sen. Barack Obama in 2008 simply do not exist today. For example, those grounded political reporters say, the former secretary is wildly popular among Democrats. They cite polling data which shows the former secretary leading her most likely challenger – the sitting Vice President of the United States – often by more than 30 points. Finally, they

   

 



 
What Should a ‘Do Something’ Congress Do?

President Barack Obama announced last week that his “big motto” for the United States Congress is “do something.” After winning the presidency with some other “big” slogans, all the president is asking the Congress to do six years later is to “hope” again.(Snip)Congressional Republicans would do well to remind voters of the dangers of a Democratic Congressional majority and avoid all temptations to formulate a me-too Progressive-lite agenda for the fall campaign. But they’ll need to do more in order to stop, much less reverse, the advance of the Progressive leviathan. A good example of what this type of action looks

Hillary Clinton has earned at least $12 million in 16 months since leaving the State Department, a windfall at odds with her party’s call to shrink the gap between the rich and the poor. Clinton’s income since her resignation as secretary of state in February 2013 is derived mostly from her latest memoir, speeches and paid appearances at corporate retreats, according to an analysis of data compiled by Bloomberg. At least 12 organizations that previously booked President Bill Clinton -- who has been paid almost $106 million in speaking fees alone since he left the White House -- also hired his wife.

Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen, confirmed Sunday night.

Long gone, evidently, are the days when the late, great Sonny Bono, asked for his position on illegal immigration, answered: “My position? What do you mean, my position? It’s illegal!” Still, I have never understood the claim that open borders is a winning political issue for the Democrats. That is borne out in the most recent Rasmussen Reports survey: Most voters don’t want any of the young illegal immigrants who’ve recently arrived here housed in their state and say any legislation passed by Congress to deal with the problem should focus on sending them home as soon as possible.

In December of 2012, speaking in front of a union audience, President Obama was cheered when he claimed that “right-to-work” laws – laws that allow employees to decide for themselves whether to join a union – were all about politics and had nothing to do with economics. In other words, he was advocating for forced unionism. Turns out he was incredibly wrong.(Snip for map)The Competitive Enterprise Institute just released a study analyzing countrywide economic activity from 1977-2012, and here are the key results: Wages – Median income loss per-person is $3,278, or $13,100 for a family of four, in forced-unionism states.

THE PEW Research Center last week released a new survey of American attitudes in the Middle East. The results weren’t surprising. In the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, 51 percent of Americans say they sympathize more with Israel. Only 14 percent feel greater affinity for the Palestinians. Pew’s findings demonstrate the strength of pro-Israel feeling in the United States. The poll was conducted amid the current fighting with Hamas, but the bottom line hardly changed from Pew’s last survey in April, when it reported that in the 36 years it has been sampling public opinion, “sympathy toward Israel has never

At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news. His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’.

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

At around noon on March 20 last year, Air Force One landed at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport for Barack Obama’s first presidential visit to Israel. The three-day trip had been billed as an Israeli reset—the newly reelected president’s bid for a clean slate with the Jewish state after four years of icy relations. Obama would lay a wreath at the tomb of Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism. He would visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum. He would address an auditorium packed with Israeli students.
