First wave of deportations begins amid
immigration crisis: Plane-loads of children and
single mothers are returned to Central America
from overwhelmed New Mexico detention center

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

There is no doubt Obama was complicit in this from the beginning and this small gesture is just an attempt to quiet the reaction.Nice try.You can count on serious long term consequences for what this guy has done.And we we have another couple of years of him to put up with.God help us.

It would seem to me that teen males with any kind of gang tats or gang affiliation should be immediately returned and not allowed to mingle with any other illegals. The lockdown Obama has on information at these centers should alarm anyone. When I see the few pictures that are being made available the majority look to be young males. Obama should call these countries and tell them all aid to them will cease until they stop dumping their citizens on U.S. soil. This crisis is Obama´s making and he is once again, failing to accept responsibility.

Wouldn´t it make more sense to refuse the incoming planes permission to disembark? Just fuel them up and send them back, fully loaded. Problem solved with a lot less expense to the American taxpayer!! Follow that with a revocation of the landing permit for any plane bringing ILLEGALS to the United States, and charge the airline with criminal activity, period!

Here is an idea. Give all "undocumented" people 180 days to report to authorities. At which time if they have no criminal record, on payment of a $1000 fine, they will be given an orange card legalizing their stay with permission to indefinitely work in the US. Orange card makes it incumbent on you to keep working. One year w/o and you are out (shades of Johnny Cochran?). Five years straight and the orange card turns to green, but NEVER to citizenship.
After 180 days, you are Sheriff Joe´s property. IMO 99% will accept the deal. Only holdout will be Chucky Schumer.

Here´s how ILLEGAL ALIENS are described in local news: "said Dominguez, who has Mexican citizenship and an Oklahoma address". Only took 7 years to arrest. He was arrested for a crash in which someone died. Had been arrested for drugs, etc prior to fatal crash. Why wasn´t he deport with the drug arrest 7 years ago.

The story left something out. The 39 illegals were being flown back to Honduras because they forgot one of their kids! They´ll be back on the next flight with all of them.

I remember a guy who used to catch and release a fish at a lake in Kentucky. He got tired of catching the same damn fish every week. Seems the old fish got used to taking the bait and getting put back. One day he just cooked him for dinner.

Time to photographer & fingerprint the illegals and ship ´em home! If it was good enough for Elain Gonzales, it´s good enough for these kids. Reunite them with their families --- in the country they came from.

In a bombshell first result, Clackmannanshire--rated by Credit Suisse as the most likely to vote Yes--dramatically rejected independence by 54 percent to 46 percent.

Scots will be worse off if they vote for independence. It’s not good economics and not much else is at stake.[Snip] Independence has been seized by the professional left—academics, artists of all kinds and other “social thinkers”—who believe an independent Scotland could raise taxes and spend more to affect more progressive social values. The Scots do support Labor candidates for Westminster in much greater numbers than do the English. Scotland is hardly shortchanged by London. It accounts for 8.3 percent of the UK population but receives 9.2 percent of public spending. Nevertheless, advocates of independence say if Scotland got control

And an 87-year-old billionaire from Spain might argue she has the strongest claim. For the Duchess of Alba is said to be one of two main contenders from the Stuart dynasty, whose Scottish monarchs transformed the country during their time in power. While First Minister Alex Salmond insists Queen Elizabeth II would remain as head of state after a Yes vote, others are not so sure. Some Scots look back fondly in the history books to their Stuart kings, the first of whom was Robert II in 1371. By the 17th century, they ruled all of England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.

Whether you want to or not, you can’t avoid the images of the beheadings of US journalists and UK aid workers in the last couple of weeks.
