Obama Seeks 3.7 Billion
to Deal With Border Kids

Associated Press, by Erica Werner & Jim Kuhnhenn

WASHINGTON -- Tackling what he has called a humanitarian crisis, President Barack Obama on Tuesday asked Congress for $3.7 billion to cope with a tide of minors from Central America who are illegally crossing the U.S. southern border, straining immigration resources and causing a political firestorm in Washington. The White House says the money would help increase the detention, care and transportation of unaccompanied children, help speed the removal of adults with children by increasing the capacity of immigration courts, and would increase prosecution of smuggling networks. The money would also increase surveillance at the U.S. border and help Central American

Not to send them home mind you but to ship them to their "families?" all over the US. Oh, and of course provide food, shelter, medical care, and housing...

What´s wrong with this picture? The VA is begging for money to dig into the scandal there, and there isn´t any money available to them. But, we have 3.7 BILLION to spend on ILLEGALS!

I wouldn´t have any problem with this money if it were used as overtime pay for our military so that they can march all these illegals back to the border and force them to climb back over the fence. Then deploy the troops to protect the borders by any means necessary.

This is a setup. Of course the bill won´t pass because the Republicans know how the money will really be spent. Obama will say the bill is for increased surveillance at the border and the Republicans wouldn´t pass it so the influx of illegals is all their fault.

FLASH! Couple on with Rush right now..retired doctor and wife from S. California.
The Catholic Church and the Bishop there have requested that members of the church "take in" illegals, and to keep it quiet..no media to be involved. The Bishop claims that the gov´t will reimburse people who house these illegals in their own homes.
Nevermind exposing the neighborhoods to TB, Ebola, swine flu,the Dr. said it is a real possibility that Ebola can be carried from Europe with some of the illegals.
There is a FEMA Camp less than 10 miles away from this Church where illegals could be housed..It appears that our government with the help of the Catholic Church purposely WANT to infect America.
Call your Church Leaders now and read them the riot act.

They put out a request for quotation back in January 2014 to care for 65,000 minors. Whatever agency put out the request had the money. Use borrowed cruise ships to take them from California and Texas ports to either Acapulco or Cancun. It won´t take Mexico long to stop traffic through their southern borders. If their parents are here in the US illegally they can come claim their children and then self-deport as a family.

Reduce all bureau budgets by 25% except for the Military. Reduce the White House budget by 50% and reduce the WH travel budget By 75%. Don´t give them any money for this political chaos they caused. Eliminate the money for Val Jars position and if it isn´t funded, it isn´t an official position.

You can´t hug unloved children with money, Mr. Obama. What those kids need are hugs all around from the first family... especially the lovely Obama girls. Remember, Mr. President, it´s hot down in South Texas tie time of year. So dress light and casual. Shorts, sandals, and sleeveless blouses. And don´t worry about the republican scare tactics regarding lice, scabies, TB, leprosy, chicken pox, mumps, measles, and probably polio. It´s just scare tactics.

Only if they can place an ironclad "earmark" that all funds must be spent on deportation judges and support staff to open courtrooms around the clock--three shifts--to send these "economic refugees," and the necessary armed enforcement officers to completely seal the border. The only family reunification should be to enable deporting the whole family.

This is an invasion of dependent children needing food, clothing, housing, medical care, schooling, foster care...etc, etc, etc.

How is bankrupting our economy through social services any less destructive than armed conflict and bombing infrastructure??

In his fourth-floor lab at Harvard University, Michael Desai has created hundreds of identical worlds in order to watch evolution at work. Each of his meticulously controlled environments is home to a separate strain of baker’s yeast. Every 12 hours, Desai’s robot assistants pluck out the fastest-growing yeast in each world — selecting the fittest to live on — and discard the rest. Desai then monitors the strains as they evolve over the course of 500 generations. His experiment, which other scientists say is unprecedented in scale, seeks to gain insight into a question that has long bedeviled biologists: If

With a number of prominent conservative politicians raising fears that the Ebola outbreak could spread to the U.S. via the country’s porous borders with Mexico and Canada, Customs and Border Protection and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sought to reassure a worried public that they are doing everything they can to monitor people entering the U.S. – whether legally or illegally – for the virus. “CBP and the CDC have closely coordinated to develop policies, procedures, and protocols to identify travelers that are known by U.S. public health officials to have a communicable disease and to handle in a

MIAMI -- Hillary Clinton covered all her bases in Miami on Thursday: She padded her wallet with a paid speech, pitched her memoir with a book signing and fundraised for a Democrat in a critical presidential state. This is becoming a familiar formula for Clinton. In October alone Clinton has four trips planned -- to Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas and San Francisco -- where she will combine a paid speech with either a book event or a fundraiser for a Democratic candidate or group. The strategy is part logistical, part practical for Clinton. But as she considers a presidential run in 2016,

HONG KONG -- Friction between pro-democracy protesters and opponents of their weeklong occupation of major Hong Kong streets persisted Saturday as police denied any connection to criminal gangs suspected of inciting attacks on largely peaceful demonstrators. Police arrested 19 people during a night of running brawls in which at least 12 people and six officers were injured. Eight men were believed to have backgrounds linked to triads, or organized crime, said Senior Superintendent Patrick Kwok Pak-chung. Officials vehemently denied rumors they might have coordinated with the gangs to clear the streets. "Such rumors linking us to `black societies,´ are utterly unfair," visibly agitated

Mapping the disaster caused by granting

I have written frequently that I estimate that one-third of the mortgage foreclosures in the 2007-10 period were of Hispanic homebuyers. Very many had been granted mortgages, despite bad or dubious credit, by lenders who then fobbed them off on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac or other mortgage securitizers, in the meantime gaining brownie points with regulators for lending to “minorities.” Evidence supporting this comes, inadvertently, from an Urban Institute report spotlighted by the industrious and provocative blogger Steve Sailer. You can see that there was a huge increase in the number of mortgages granted to Hispanics in the years

Alton Nolen, the alleged perp in last week’s horrible beheading in Oklahoma, was no aberration. If anything, he was a ticking time bomb with a short fuse.

Many clinics have already closed under a part of the law requiring doctors who perform abortions to obtain hospital admitting privileges, and now more than a dozen remaining clinics are set to shutter as well.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close.
