Obama Admin: Illegals From
Central America ´Not Dangerous´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/7/2014 10:47:05 AM

The Obama administration claimed Sunday that illegal immigrants flooding across the border from Central America are not dangerous, despite numerous reports of gangsters and criminals being apprehended at the border. On ABC´s This Week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske said of the nearly 50,000 illegal immigrants who have crossed the border since October of last year, "these are family members." "These are not gang members," he said. "These are not dangerous individuals." At a House Homeland Security Committee Field Hearing on the border crisis on Thursday in McAllen, Texas, Texas Governor Rick Perry said that gangsters and terrorists are looking

What on earth do you do when this is the attitude of Obama and his regime? It´s just terrifying and outrageous and all we can do is sit by and watch in horror as this unfolds.

As if he would even know if a hundred jihadboys waded across the Rio Grande…

Honestly - the only reason they do not do this is they know they would have a real fight on their hands once the Texans saw them.

Tell that to the families of the 4 Newark college kids who were brutally executed (1 survived) by members of the MS 13 while they were hanging out in a school yard in 2007, commonly referred to as the school yard murders.

Enough with the lies.

The important term is "Illegal Alien". The term has meaning. I am not certain if Obumble & Co. are too stupid to know that, or are hell-bent on wrecking the country. Or both.
Send them back, postage due.

FTA: "Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) also has claimed that illegal immigrants from Central America are not dangerous, even admitting that she has handed out bags of lollipops to them at detention centers."

What you may not realize is that a unrepentant BLACK sycophant dRATS member of Congress was able to breach the hight security while last week, Rep. Jim Bridenstine was denied outright any access by robocops in HIS district. This is reason to have an immediate hearing to stop the importation of these illegals.

"Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) issued a scathing press release Wednesday after he was denied access to a facility in his state housing more than 1,000 children who crossed the border illegally."

Spreading diseases is not dangerous?


Senator Kyl´s answer from obama on immigration reform repeated at his townhall meeting:
"The problem is, . . . if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’” [Audible gasps were heard throughout the audience.] Sen. Kyl continued, “In other words, they’re holding it hostage. They don’t want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with ‘comprehensive immigration reform.’”

How does he know this?

He also knew about the "spontaneous" outburst of YouTube movie critics in Benghazi. I bet this influx of illegals he seems to already know so much about is "spontaneous" too.

If he is not removed and prevented from doing even more intentional damage in the next two and half years, it will be a permanent mark of shame on the American people, who allowed themselves to be so intimidated by an artificially induced racial guilt that they sacrificed the rule of law to it.

They showed some very brief film clips on CNN recently. Not all of them are 11 year old girls carrying a doll. Some were rough-looking 17-year old ´children´. Wouldn´t doubt if more than a few were 20, and ready to run wild.

Perhaps he is mostly right that the "illegals" from Central America are not dangerous. But how about the Islamist terrorists who can just as easily come in through the same lacy borders?

More to the point, Obama is making the decision for all Americans that there is no "danger" from Central American illegals. Excuse me, but even if most are not violent criminals, they are still dangerous because they will suck the life out of the national economy and out of individual American workers who pay taxes. Now their taxes will have to be raised (in some surreptitious tax on maybe your phone or gas bill) to pay for these illegals.

I cannot believe there is no discussion before Obama makes his dictates. Where is Congress? Everyone should be apoplectic that Obama just burned the Constitution.

We will all, Democrats and Republicans and Independents, Jews, Gentiles, Atheists, men, women, children, liberals, conservatives, lofos --- pay through the nose for these "non-dangerous" illegals.

OPEN LETTER TO CONGRESS: Is this okay with you? America is infuriated. You´re not? It´s awfully quiet over there on Capitol Hill. We elected you to see this kind of thing didn´t happen. It´s happening. And you´re doing what, again?

Dangerous or not, they are a burden on the US taxpayer.
You cannot have Open Borders in an Entitlement Society, where all residents--legal or otherwise--are entitled to Welfare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, Free Tuition, Pell Grants, Section 8 Housing, Unemployment, Free Legal Aid, Earned Income Credit, etc.
How is that not easy to understand?

Hey Kerlikowski, even if they are simply children, they are carrying diseases that you will spread through the US when you move them to other states. There have been 7 reported cases of TB (3 near Austin, 4 at Lackland), and a couple of cases each of Scabies and swine flue.

Just thinking ...

Wouldn´t it be a nice gesture for the entire Obama family and other administration personnel to visit one of the internment camps to personally welcome all these not dangerous people to the U.S.?

Maybe a lunch get together - the Obama girls can interact with some of the internees.

Michelle can provide some maternal contact for the children.

No ... I´m not being sarcastic.

Who cares if illegal aliens from Central America are deemed by Obama to be dangerous or not, as that is beside the point, as the fact remains they are illegal aliens who should not be here, and who should not be allowed to stay.

Clearly there are hundreds of millions of mostly poor and generally uneducated peoples around the world who individually are not dangerous, but who would love to come to the USA. Now it is it clear to them that if they could only get here Obama would let them stay. Once here in large numbers and formed into large exclusive communities they could then certainly become a danger to the American way of life.

By using subterfuge and making misleading statements to the American people about his administration´s non enforcement of the immigration laws policies, Obama aided by the liberal Democrats, and special interests who make their livings by supporting illegal immigration, is disparaging and undermining the immigration laws and is encouraging huge numbers of potential illegal aliens to come to the USA for partisan political purposes.

Obama will never effectively enforce the immigration laws, any Republican politician who can´t figure that out is a political moron.

It seems silly to respond to another absurd lie from this administration, but one can´t help it.

Central Americans are not dangerous? Surely they´ve heard of Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) which originated in Central America and about whom Wiki has this to say:

- Ethnicity -- Mostly Salvadorans
- Membership -- 70,000
- Criminal activities -- Drug trafficking, robbery, Larceny, human trafficking, extortion, illegal immigration, murder, prostitution, racketeering, battery, kidnapping and arms trafficking.
- Allies -- Sinaloa Cartel, Gulf Cartel, La Familia Michoacana, Mexican Mafia, Yakuza, Los Zetas

Nope, not dangerous at all!

Breaking on Capitol Hill is the news that Iraqi officials began requesting almost a year ago for the US to carry out drone strikes against ISIS – but the requests were shot down by the White House. That stunning revelation came during a hearing on the situation in Iraq this morning. The Hill reports: During a hearing on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said the administration knew six months ago that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL) had established armed camps, staging areas and training grounds in Iraq’s western

Legalized, Not Prosecuted: Illegal

The U.S. government not only failed to prosecute an illegal alien who stole the identity of his dead baby son—who had collected SSI before he died—but granted the father legal status to work in the United States. This one-time illegal alien, the Office of Inspector General for the Social Security Administration believes, fraudulently used his son’s Social Security Number for at least three years. Yet, he was not prosecuted, according to the IG’s office, because his case did not meet the prosecutorial guidelines of the U.S. attorney for New Jersey. In fact, this case might never have come to light had the IG

HOUSTON, Texas--While the Obama Administration has largely expressed surprise at the sharp increase in illegal immigrants from Central America this year, the Health and Human Services (HHS) budget for processing unaccompanied foreign minors has exploded in recent years, raising questions about whether the administration could have foreseen, or did foresee, the crisis. After being apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, many illegal immigrants are then put into the custody of HHS where they receive a myriad of taxpayer-subsidized benefits including housing, food, vocational training, education, and even legal

The story was not about the ongoing wave of illegal aliens from Central America--many of them children--crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Rather, it was about the rules on when deadly force may be used by Border Patrol agents in the course of their duties--with a view to making it harder for them to do so. In the course of an interview with newly-appointed U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, Inskeep does not even try to hide his bias: he

The Korean Airlines flight was shot down en route to South Korea by Soviet Union fighter pilots when it drifted into Soviet airspace, killing 60 Americans, including a congressman. Reagan ended his California vacation and flew back to Washington, D.C. In a speech four days later, Reagan said, “This was the Soviet Union against the world

FALFURRIAS, Texas – Far from the crisis along the border with Mexico in the Rio Grande Valley, the checkpoint here exists to deter those who made it this far but want to get away. To an American — let’s say a young white man– the three-lane checkpoint some 70 miles from the border seems far from threatening. A Border Patrol agent asks if you’re a U.S. citizen. Answer correctly, and he lets you through. But for illegal immigrants who want to elude capture, the Falfurrias checkpoint, with drug-sniffing dogs looming, is the likely end of the journey. So the migrants

But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens
