Hoyer: If We Built Border Fence,
Children Would Just Stand Behind It

Cybercast News Service, by Brittany M. Hughes

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/9/2014 10:30:31 AM

House Democratic Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) says illegal immigrant children would “just stand at the fence” if the federal government built the double-layered fence required under the 2006 Secure Fence Act. During a press briefing Tuesday, CNSNews.com asked Hoyer, “Should Congress revisit building a physical, double-layered fence as was included in the 2006 Secure Fence Act?” “Let’s say you build a fence, just hypothetically, and you saw five hundred children standing at the fence, and you saw them standing there 24 hours, 48 hours, 72 hours, 96 hours. There’s a fence there and they can’t go anywhere and they stay there.

Comments:
What a completely moronic statement! Then let them stand there! At least we won´t be burdened with paying for all of their needs!

Indeed. Just as Americans stand behind the fence that surrounds the White House. If fences don´t work why does the White House have on?

Whatever ! Like many Americans, I am tired of my country being invaded, and fat politicians having sympathy for THEM and none for the people here who have to PAY their BILLS.
I say this loud and clear, illegals are NOT welcome here. They are stealing our resources.

So they stand there looking at us .... which means it´s then Mexico´s problem, perhaps spurring Mexico to secure their own southern border.

Problem solved!

Obama invited them, and by inaction continues to do so. Of course, they will continue to come.
Oh, and that new fence? Between the Chamber of Commerce and Democrat voter growth, forget about it.

This is so insulting. He really thinks we´re stupid. The smugglers wouldn´t try to bring the children in if they knew the border was secure. In the Yuma corridor where they have a fence, barricades and criminal deterrence there are no children looking in.

I´ve noticed leftists, having had their lies and conspiracies exposed by the internet over the last 20 years, have resorted to absurd, dramatic hypotheticals to ´prove´ their case.

Unfortunately, several of those leftists currently sit on the Supreme Court. Their rulings are an embarrassing collection of paranoid, statistically impossible what-ifs.

I have a question for Hoyer. What about my child? My child is doing without because you are giving my money to the illegals and you have given my job to the illegals. We have to dumb down the schools because these children do not speak English. Look at all the unsafe drivers that will be on the roads. You are exposing my child to deceases we have not known existed for centuries. My child life is in danger because you are allowing gangs, and terrorists to also cross the border.

Steny,
After your had your dinner, sweep the crumbs together, and take them to the fence, and throw them over. That should feed 10 or 20.

BTW, I consider you equally as competent and respectable as Obama.

And once again (as we noted on Fox News last night) all the pictures are of wee little girls in strappy sandals or boy children wearing power ranger t-shirts. All pictures were cute and appealing - none were of the majority (we´re told 80%) 15-18 y/o heavily inked males who are likely MS13 members. Political manipulation promoted by media. They really really believe we´re stupid and will buy the "refugee children" meme.

If Rep Hoyer wants to support those criminal alien invading biological hazard children, then I suggest he take the funds directly from the programs supporting US citizens who are unwilling to work...SNAP, TANF, Medicaid, Section 8 housing, etc.

The working/taxpaying US citizens are supporting as many non-productive layabouts as we can afford, IF my taxes must go up, I only want to pay more for veterans (who have paid their dues) and maybe seniors (who worked all their lives paying into the public coffers) there are already enough riders on the wagon, it is hard enough to pull as it is.

If we build the fence they won´t come, and if they still come we could enforce the laws as written, then we would only need to deport about half of the 40 or 50 millions of alien invaders living here already...the rest will self-deport before they have a record of being deported, if only they are convinced legal deportations are certain to be in their future.

That fence is a joke, it´s not even continuous. They go to a break and walk around it.

For the amount of money wasted on ´the fence´ and welfare for immigrants, the Great Wall of China could have been duplicated and up by now.

Shortly after Breitbart News revealed that the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC) had deleted its past two Friday sermons from its website, the mosque responded by making the sermons again available to the public. The motive behind why the mosque decided to originally remove the two sermons, which were held before and shortly after congregation member and Islamist radical Alton Nolen allegedly brutally beheaded an innocent woman-- and then decided to again bring the links back on the website-- remains unknown. What Breitbart News uncovered through the two sermons was the closeness in the relationship between the mosque and the

A mosquito-borne virus that can cause debilitating joint pain lasting for years has spread to the continental U.S. after infecting hundreds of thousands of people in the Caribbean and Central America. The virus is called Chikungunya, an African name meaning “to become contorted.” While the illness, first identified in Tanzania in 1952, has long bedeviled Africa and Asia, the only recorded cases in the U.S. before July involved patients who contracted the virus abroad. Now, 11 cases have been confirmed as originating in Florida, spurring concern this may be the beginning of the type of explosive growth seen elsewhere from

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington.
