Flow of Central American immigrants
through Mexico shows no signs of slowing

Associated Press, by Staff

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Like I´ve said before, $3.7B now, $6B in 6 months; $14B next year; until it reaches $1T for each and every year.

WHAT Is Obama doing to stop this? Nothing, to the contrary, he is encouraging it. His plans for this country are the same plans as ISLAM has for this country.

His Democrat supporters see any criticism as racism, so THEY aren´t going to say anything. It´s all a game for them of political defeat for the Republican party economically crushing the enemy.

Even if the House gets a bill out to return them and the Senate passes it and obmam signs it doesn´t mean any thing. The Democrats will do what it takes to get rid of the story and the msm will help with those optics. But we all know laws mean nothing to obama and the Democrats the return of the illegal aliens will be slow walked so as to be minuscule compared to flood coming in. They get rid of the story and get to keep a majority of the illegals. We are being invaded by illegal aliens and the Democrats are out saying the border is secure. Good grief this is worse than any Twilight Zone episode.

Except for doltish, clueless Harry Reid, the Democrats and the President are desperate to get this story out of the news. What Obama and his not-so-smart-after-all advisers expected from this border plan was not what they ended up with. None of them expected the thousands and thousands who have come and are still coming. Now, it´s up to the GOP in the House and the Senate to force Obama´s signature. He will harumph and complain, but he will sign a bill to put an end to this disaster.

#1 3.7b now or EVER is ludicrous in any measure. Sending the current influx might cost 1-2m and I´m being generous with air fair and the cost of delousing and sanitizing the aircraft. Getting the remaining millions who were here before this disaster still wouldn´t cost $1b. This administration has spent so wildly that the perception of the difference between million and billion has become warped.

Obama is forcing taxpayers to sign a blank check. The Federal Govt claims they don´t know how many illegals are here, or how many will be coming. Mind you, as I type this, illegals are being ´secretly´ distributed all around our country. You and I don´t have a right to know how many - or where. We are, however, required to foot the bill without receiving any factual answers to our questions, much less a truthful explanation.

Obama is forcing taxpayers to financially support each and every man, woman and child that has broken into our country, for this generation, and probably the next. The possibility exists that the family members of each illegal will want to come here, too, and those expenses will become your and my responsibility. How do we financially forecast?

Never mind that today, jobs are currently more rare than hen´s teeth. Nevermind that Obama is gutting our military, and that we have returning Veteran´s who should have first dibs on jobs upon their return. Nevermind that illegals receive the best of health care, but our Veteran´s die waiting to access theirs. The list goes on and on.

I don´t believe for a second this ´humanitarian crisis´ is coincidence. I believe it was carefully orchestrated.

If Rick Perry, in defiance of 0bama, would send the Texas National Guard to the border, fully armed, and use the Air National Guard fighter jets to make low flying runs just inside the border, he would be a shoe-in for president in 2016. If 0bama tried to stop him, Perry could call him out and force him to take ownership of the mess. It´s a win-win for Perry and the Republicans.

Jan Brewer could then do the same in Arizona and perhaps New Mexico and California would be forced by their citizens to join in.

If I can come up with this plan, why can´t Perry? Or any other Republican "leader" for that matter.

Just wait until little 11 year old Pablo or Juan or Maria makes it all the way to their aunt´s free apartment in the public housing project in L.A., NY, St. Louis, or where ever and then calls home to Mamachita on the free Obama-phone --- that´s when Mama gets on the bus north with her other 4 brats. Expect 1 million by year´s end.

And calling out the national Guard will do what? These people have been told to just lie down when confronted by any American in a uniform. The National Guard is going to shoot them? You think they believe that? Not happening. Better to grab a few thousand and send them back!

It will only stop when Pablo and his friends show up back where they came from with wild stories about the round trip.

The corrupt Mexican Government is engaged in an "act of war" against the national sovereignty of The United States by allowing these tens of thousands of illegal alien "invaders" "free passage" through their territory.

Maybe it´s time our Department of Defense thought seriously about reactivating and reconstituting Brigadier General John J. Pershing´s old 8th Brigade and the it´s supporting units of the punitive Mexican Expeditionary Force of 1916.

We need to cut off diplomatic relations with Mexico, and the countries that are exporting their people. Then we need to stop any money transfers from the US t thee countries. If someone comes over from Mexico they are sent back with a bill for Mexico not performing their sovereign duties. No more aid to these countries, no nada.

How is "lobbing" children, along with MS-13 members, drug traffickers, terrorists, and others into our country from Mexico that much different from lobbing rockets into Israel from the Gaza strip? The difference that I see is that traitors our government are facilitating it.

"through Mexico" is operative here. This invasion, the act of war and treason that it is, could not happen without the complicity of the governments of Mexico and other Central American nations. It is time to treat this assault on our borders accordingly.

It´s pretty clear that we can´t wait or depend on our government to do anything about this invasion. It´s going to take a coming together of True Americans to overcome what our own government in accord with the governments of South America are doing to US.

Illegals gather together in our city streets and DEMAND that OUR government meet their needs. They boycott services - refusing to support the very country that has given them refuge, housing, food, healthcare and more. They care not that the education of their children has come at the expense of the education of ours. They will burn OUR American Flag in our very streets while they shout obscenities at any American who disagrees with them. Their middle finger is their salute to us TRUE AMERICANS.

It is time that WE gather in our city streets and demand that OUR government meet OUR demands - TO SEAL OUR SOUTHERN BORDER AND SEND THOSE WHO HAVE VIOLATED OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS BACK WHERE THEY CAME FROM. Then we need to boycott everything from Mexico, including travel. It might take a while, but we are a powerful force. We just need to start.

Americans now need to get organized to protect our country; from the invaders coming in from the southern border and from the government that isn´t doing its job. I´m ready as I know millions of Americans are.

The House of Representatives should not give Obama any money, as he will just use it to hire a bunch of leftist lawyers, most coming out of the very liberal ethnic and immigrant advocacy groups allied to the liberal Democrats as new immigration court judges, along with immigration lawyers to represent illegal aliens.Those judges and lawyers are about the last people who are going to facilitate the US Government removing illegal aliens from the USA.

The tens of millions of illegal aliens along with the new illegal aliens coming into the USA are forming huge communities inside the big liberal Democrat run cities that serve as cover for the international drug cartels and other foreign criminals to operate in the USA. The people who bring the cartel´s illicit drugs into the USA and who transport those drugs all over the USA are almost all either deportable permanent resident aliens (green card holders) or illegal aliens.

Big time liberal Democrats have continuously disparaged and undermined the immigration laws and are now announcing to the world that the borders are open and illegal aliens are welcome in the USA. Things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. This is all political to generate a huge number of new foreign born voters for the liberal Democrats in the years ahead. The November election is going to be very important to the future of the country.

Greg Abbott launches first
negative TV ad against Wendy Davis

AUSTIN — Greg Abbott’s campaign launched a new attack on Democratic rival Wendy Davis’ ethics Thursday, saying she voted on legislation as a state senator that personally benefited her business. A new 30-second TV ad airing statewide marks a political escalation by the Abbott campaign, which has largely ignored Davis in its TV ad campaign and instead focused on the Republican attorney general’s platform and personal story. While Davis has targeted Abbott relentlessly on TV, Abbott’s ads until now have been an effective contrast, signaling to his Republican base that he’s in good shape. In the ad, an announcer accuses Davis of

The show trial is underway and the guilty verdict is guaranteed, as a United Nations panel makes a pretense of investigating human rights violations in the 50-day war between Israel and Hamas. To his severe discredit, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has sanctioned a proceeding whose transparent rigging would be at home in a totalitarian regime. Israel is, of course, the defendant going down the tubes. Hamas started the conflict by firing thousands of rockets indiscriminately into the Jewish state from heavily populated areas of Gaza, and prolonged the suffering by violating ceasefire after ceasefire that Israel honored.

Joseph R. Biden’s 2016 presidential ambitions already look like they have been swallowed whole by the Hillary Rodham Clinton juggernaut, but political analysts say the vice president still has a narrow path to victory — one that depends on either out-politicking the former first lady in crucial states such as Iowa or praying she makes a grave mistake. Mr. Biden and Mrs. Clinton both visited Iowa, home of the first caucuses in the presidential primary cycle, over the past week. Neither has declared a White House run in two years, but each seemed to be courting the Democratic foot soldiers necessary

Supporters of the Obama administration like to create the impression that there is no viable alternative to the Affordable Care Act — i.e., Obamacare. But that is demonstrably not true. Republican senators Richard Burr, Tom Coburn, and Orrin Hatch introduced a plan earlier this year that would cover just as many people with insurance as Obamacare at a fraction of the cost. Now we have confirmation, in the form of a new cost estimate, that a similarly constructed but slightly different proposal would also cost less, while covering nearly the same number of people. The plan, developed and promoted by the 2017

On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo sounded the alarm about the escalating danger of a terrorist attack on America by ISIS and other jihadists. Too bad the Obama administration lacks the resolve or sense of urgency to meet this danger head on. Worse, political correctness is hindering New York, a likely target, from tracking and stopping the jihadists in our midst. Holder announced “pilot programs” to “raise awareness,” bringing together religious leaders, community leaders, and law enforcement to build “community partnerships.” Sounds heartwarming. The White House will also hold a

Emails sent by liberal activists and obtained by The Hill reveal significant dissatisfaction with Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. The critical messages about the former first lady show that she has a long way to go to assuage skepticism from influential voices on the left. The Hill reviewed hundreds of emails from a progressive members only Google group called the “Gamechanger Salon,” a forum where nearly 1,500 activists, strategists and journalists debate issues and craft messaging campaigns. The group includes prominent Democrats, Sierra Club officials, journalists who work for The Huffington Post and The Nation magazine, senior

he New York Times on Wednesday carried a provocative front-page dispatch from Kentucky by Abby Goodnough, who’s been doing a superb job of covering the impact of the Affordable Care Act in the Bluegrass State as a window into the law’s import nationally. The piece captures the political dynamic in Kentucky, where Obamacare has slashed the rate of the uninsured from 20.4 percent to 11.9 percent, the second largest drop after Arkansas, but where this success is seemingly not redounding to the benefit of Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is now lagging in the polls against Mitch McConnell.

Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a Senior Member of the House Homeland Security Committee and House Judiciary Committee and Ranking Member of the Border and Maritime Subcommittee.(snip) The Congresswoman released the following statement: “The bloodshed at the hands of ISIL has been enormous.
