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.

Was U.S. Journalist Steven

Posted By: StormCnter- 9/2/2014 3:56:26 PM     Post Reply
Just before American journalist Steven Sotloff was abducted in Syria, his fixer’s identity may have been compromised. Editor´s Note: ISIS claims to have executed Steven Sotloff on September 2, in a videotaped beheading. When pro-regime and anti-government factions started killing each other in the 8,000-year-old Syrian city of Aleppo, a little town in Turkey called Kilis blossomed into relevance at their expense. Located just four miles north of the Syrian border, Kilis became a vital crossing point in and out of a rapidly devolving war. If you were to wander into the decrepit Hotel Istanbul in the center of Kilis last summer and

Is Wendy Davis´ political star fading

As a feisty state senator with pink sneakers and a fist in the air, Wendy Davis captured both the love and the ire of America last year when she pulled an 11-hour filibuster of anti-abortion measures in the Texas Capitol. But after using that star power to win her party´s nomination for governor, Davis is still struggling to take a lead over Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, and some say party confidence in her race is waning.

A U.S. court in Texas will hear arguments on Tuesday in a case over a law requiring voters to present photo identification, a move the state´s Republican leaders say will prevent fraud while plaintiffs call it a veiled attempt at suppressing minority turnout. The case is also part of a new strategy by the Obama administration to challenge voting laws it says discriminate by race in order to counter a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June that freed states from strict federal oversight. . The trial at the U.S. district court in Corpus Christi stems from a three-year legal battle over stringent

Democrats are bullish about their opportunity to win the governor´s mansion in Kansas and Republicans have sent staffers out to Hawaii for what they view as a promising opportunity to turn the state red. Those statements may seem surprising given both states´ political leanings—but they´re a testament to the fact that the 2014 gubernatorial map has shifted considerably in recent months, a new reality that may cause both parties to move resources to places they never expected at the beginning of the year. Unlike the 2014 Senate map, which has remained relatively static over the course of the cycle, the

Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell has put a little more distance between him and his Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, but the race remains within the margin of error, according to the latest Bluegrass Poll. The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA for The Courier-Journal and three other news outlets, found that McConnell holds a 46 percent to 42 percent lead among likely voters over Grimes. Libertarian David Patterson gets 5 percent of the vote, and 8 percent remain undecided. It´s the third consecutive Bluegrass Poll that has found McConnell improving his chances for re-election in November. Before that, the poll found Grimes ahead

John Walsh was by far the most endangered incumbent in the chamber at the time of the previous installment in early August, but his decision last month to not seek a full term opened the top slot to a couple other worthy contenders.

His themes were tiresomely familiar–we are the good guys, Republicans are the bad guys–but one interesting feature was his reference to “immigration rights.” This passage laid the groundwork: When unions and CEOs, when law enforcement and the evangelical community, when folks who usually don’t agree on anything agree that we should be fixing our broken immigration system, but the Republicans in the House of Representatives have been sitting on a bill for more than a

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question.
