Analysis of the Supplemental Budget
Request: A peek at what´s behind
the White House’s border "surge"

Center for Immigration Studies, by Dan Cadman

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/10/2014 8:04:10 AM

On July 8, the White House submitted its emergency budget request to the House of Representatives (which holds the "power of the purse" under our Constitution) to deal with the "humanitarian crisis" on our southern border. The budget request, which totals $3.7 billion, immediately drew flack from many representatives who called it a blank check. Responding in the media, White House Director of the Domestic Policy Council Cecilia Muñoz said that Congress cannot have it both ways: criticizing the administration while withholding the funding to effectively handle the crisis. Having studied the request, it seems clear to me that it

Comments:
A detailed analysis of where the $3.7 billion would go - the lion´s share to embedding and facilitating entire families, not just the illegal children. 49% to HHS. millions to DoJ for attorneys to represent the illegals, and the administration can move 30% around where it chooses (the usual percentage is 10% without Congress´s specific approval).

Not a long article and well worth a read....

Well worth a read.

Any funding bill must have an amendment that repeals the 2008 immigration law that treats children from "non-contiguous countries" differently than illegal minors from Mexico and possibly Canada. The 2008 gives illegal minors* legal rights, including free lawyers and hearings that the minor never appears at.

* - Not be to confused with illegal miners, the thousands of Americans Obama wants to put out of work for mining coal.

Saw his comments last night. What a petulant child! The crisis is over if Republicans would just give him his $3.7 Billion with no questions asked. It´s all their fault. What do they want a moat? Never in my lifetime have we seen a President this petty and childish - and LAZY!
This, of course, in addition to dishonest. He actually asked why they won´t negotiate with him!

More obfuscation is promoted by Obama. He has full authority to manage the crisis at the border, but refuses to live up to his duty. Obama can simply rescind his extralegal policy on amnesty for minors. Evil doers should not be rewarded for their misdeeds.

Like many such things, the devil is in the detail. As in the porkulus bill, little is dedicated to its stated purpose.

Just fix the 2008 law and summarily deport these invaders. If we want to be compassionate to these UACs: fly them home on military transports. If their home countries deny landing rights, then repatriate them in the manner of a reverse Mariel boatlift.

BTW: Where is the U.N. in all this?

Thought so.

Give the SOB nothing. He created the problem and he has his own stash. He should clean up the mess created by him. We ´folks´, WTP, feel this would be the ´Fair thing´ to do.

Milton police are reopening the investigation into last year’s death of a local concert hall owner following the recent arrest of a high-end call girl from metro Atlanta who California police said injected a Google executive with heroin and left him to die. Channel 2 Action News reported that the call girl, 2005 Northview High School graduate Alix Tichelman, was dating Dean Riopelle just before his death last September, and had been arrested two weeks before Riopelle died for biting the 53-year-old owner of Atlanta’s Masquerade concert venue.

Germany’s federal government has ordered the US intelligence station chief at the Berlin embassy to leave the country - before he is expelled - after a second double agent was uncovered inside the German government. Investigators in Berlin have interviewed a man working for the defence ministry on suspicion of co-operation with US intelligence - a week after an officer in the BND foreign intelligence service said he had sold classified files to the CIA. German officials have now upped the ante in the spy affair to demonstrate their frustration at perceived stone-walling by Washington. A year after the first revelations by

A Folsom woman described by police as a high-priced prostitute stands accused of injecting a Bay Area client with a fatal dose of heroin before stepping over his body, finishing off a glass of wine and fleeing with evidence. In a case that quickly became an international media sensation, Alix Catherine Tichelman, 26, was arraigned in Santa Cruz Superior Court on Wednesday on eight felony and misdemeanor charges including manslaughter, prostitution, destruction of evidence and transportation of narcotics. She is being held in lieu of $1.5 million bail. (Snip) Tichelman is the daughter of Folsom technology executive Bart Tichelman, according to

Child Deportations Complicate
Advancing Obama Border Bill

President Barack Obama’s request for $3.7 billion to address thousands of children entering the U.S. illegally at the Mexican border is being met by obstacles in Congress from lawmakers in both parties. Republicans, who have long advocated tougher border security, are demanding legislation to speed deportation of the minors in exchange for new spending. Some House Republicans also say the funds must be offset with cuts elsewhere. Although Obama wants to expedite the deportation of Central American children, many Democrats in Congress disagree with that approach. Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois, the chamber’s second-ranking Democrat, told reporters he’s not inclined

During the Illegal Alien Rally in front of the White House, Dan Joseph begins asking organizers and activists about whether they “actually” support breaking the law. With simple and direct questions Dan gets the rally participants to admit on camera they support and indeed advocate for all south American countries to violate the U.S. border. Then the rally organizers realize what’s going on – they do not want the truth of their motivation exposed to sunlight. Consequently they begin to follow Dan Joseph around pulling people away from his interviews. Must watch video:

National conservative election integrity organization True The Vote has asked a federal judge to issue a restraining order against the Mississippi Republican Party, alleging that the state GOP may be engaged in the destruction of evidence of alleged voter fraud from the June 24 GOP primary runoff. “Defendant county commissioners have continued to violate federal law by preventing access to election records.

Alix Catherine Tichelman fancied herself a woman of many talents: model, makeup artist, writer, poet, hustler and exotic dancer. Police say she deserves another moniker: murderess. Prosecutors charged Tichelman, 26, of Atlanta, with manslaughter Wednesday for allegedly injecting high profile Google executive Forrest Tim Hayes with heroin and then standing by as he overdosed and died Nov. 23 on his 50-foot yacht, Escape, in the Santa Cruz, Calif., harbor. Tichelman, who allegedly worked as a call girl, had an "ongoing prostitution relationship" with Hayes, who was married and a father of five, police said.

Making his first appearance in front of the cameras since his mugshot went viral, convicted felon Jeremy Meeks wore a bright orange jumpsuit, handcuffs and a stone-serious expression. Meeks, who was arrested last month during a gang sweep in Stockton, Calif., faced multiple felony weapons charges. But during a brief court appearance in Stockton on Tuesday, the state agreed to turn the case — and Meeks — over to federal prosecutors, according to Sacramento’s KXTV. He is now in federal custody, the station reported, facing a single charge: “Felon in possession of a firearm.” That one charge could lead to

As members of Congress and reporters ask to visit federal facilities housing children who have been apprehended by the U.S. in recent months, federal officials are slapping limits on members of the news media who want a glimpse inside. For example, an email sent to news organizations by Jesus Garcia, a public affairs officer for the Administration for Children and Families, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services, sets out a number of restrictions on reporters if they want to visit "Unaccompanied Alien Children" being held at Fort Sill in Oklahoma.

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

President Obama’s ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a “fireside” Web chat that his “is the most transparent administration in history.” There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it. But three-dozen organizations representing newspapermen and other journalists, mostly liberals, beg to differ. In a testy letter to the president on Tuesday, the group decried the “slick non-answers” and cold shoulders they’re getting from Mr. Obama’s representatives, who have restricted access to any information they consider embarrassing to the administration. “The stifling of free expression,” the signers

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment.

"I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit
