Homeland Secretary: Parents Give
Immigrant Children Birth Control ‘In
Case They’re Raped Along The Way’

CBS (DC), by Benjamin Fearnow

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/17/2014 12:18:15 PM

WASHINGTON– Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson warns that some parents of Central American children attempting to cross the U.S. border illegally already know of the risks, noting that some girls are given birth control “in case they’re raped along the way.” Speaking with the Senate Appropriations Committee last week, Johnson joined the Obama administration in attempting to warn Central American parents to stop sending their children on the dangerous route to entering the U.S. illegally. But Johnson said that he’s met with children and heard stories that some parents are very aware of the risks along the route. “I’ve met with

WTH is wrong with parents who would put their children through that? What is wrong with them, culturally, spiritually, and intellectually?

And WHY is Obama encouraging this mass migration? He has the blood of innocents on his hands.

Maybe the parents know getting them out of the hellhole they are living in now is worth the risks.

I agree #3. Poor in Central America is a lot worse than poor in America. In America, they will have clean water, education and opportunity. In Wherever, they´d have minimal chance of changing thier caste in life.

I am not saying we should open the borders, but I understand why they would send them here through dangerous conditions.

Finding that hard to believe. They want anchor babies. If they´re giving birth control for fear of rape then they´re worse parents than originally thought. How about keeping them home to protect them from that particular rape?

The anchor children are having anchor babies and the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins, great aunts, great uncles, great great grandmothers and great great grandfathers and... and...

got the picture? chain migration.

The doltish Dems keep trying to persuade us, shame us, into agreeing that somehow we are responsible.

The day each one of them takes a large number into their homes, including BO on vacation, and into his mansion in Chicago, then we will get a better picture of their compassion.

Until then, they demonstrate that they are phonies and hypocrites who have no compunctions about spending the tax dollars of hard-working citizens in order to assuage their own guilt.

And then of course there´s the "fundamental transformation of the United States of America" to consider...

Honduran/Guatemalan logic...
Roll the dice, risk your kids safety to get to the USA. Obama has given the green light to kids to come and no deportation. They will gain their citizenship and then under chain migration bring you up to the states to spend your old age with them in the land of plenty, and plenty of entitlements.
Sure it´s risky but look at the payoff for your kids and you.

The United States is not the only country which is experiencing massive number of people entering their country from Central America. Mexico could easily intercept many of them but they are happy to have them keep moving along so they become an American problem.

This is insanity. I have great compassion for the true children who are trying to escape the violence and poverty. I can understand the feelings of the parents. But this is the worst way possible to remedy this. We need to close the border, fix the law that allows kids automatic hearings. Then we need to threaten Mexico. If they don´t stop the illegal transportation of children thru their country to our border we´ll cut off trade, we´ll cut off aid, we´ll kick your butt. Then we need to set up a legitimate program in these countries to help bring children at risk, real children not gang bangers, here to either reunite with family or be adopted.

"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Sounds like the parents of the young illegal aliens crossing the borderline have all their bases covered. Clearly they knew that once their children walked across the borderline that Obama would take care of them by way of his catch and release programs that the border patrol is mandated to implement. Events have shown that those Central American parents were right.

#5 and others notice the solution is for the US to start providing free contraceptives in those Central American nations.

We should also provide free shoes, some will have long walks coming North.

Since that wouldn´t cost us enough we should then rapidly expand the program to all nations. Free, Free, Free!

Seriously, I don´t see any good resolution for this mess, only bad ones and worse ones.

Obama: GOP captive to

NEWPORT, R.I.— President Barack Obama on Friday blamed dysfunction in Congress on a Republican Party he said is captive to an ideologically rigid, unproductive and cynical faction, urging like-minded Democrats to show up for November´s midterm elections. Addressing Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Rhode Island and another in New York, Obama said Republicans had realized that blocking all progress led Americans to become cynical about government. Republicans consider that "a pretty good thing" because they don´t believe in government to begin with, Obama said.

On Thursday, Modoc and Siskiyou counties in California, adjacent to Oregon, formally requested state officials to allow them to secede from the state and form a new state to be called Jefferson, according to the Sacramento Bee. The two counties’ governments directly petitioned the secretaries of the state Assembly and Senate after they had already submitted a petition to the secretary of state asserting that they weren’t represented strongly enough in the state.

I´m shocked, shocked I tell you, to learn that during the last 6 months, 99% of illegal alien minors who snuck across the border have been released. How can this be? Our president, who never tells a lie, said many times that the illegal kids couldn´t stay, that they would be sent home. Instead, it appears that the president misspoke. Or was misunderstood. Or Republicans have twisted his words.

Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A.

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

At least four hostages held in Syria by the Islamic State, including an American journalist who was recently executed by the group, were waterboarded in the early part of their captivity, according to people familiar with the treatment of the kidnapped Westerners. James Foley was among the four who were waterboarded several times by Islamic State militants who appeared to model the technique on the CIA’s use of waterboarding to interrogate suspected terrorists after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The victims of waterboarding are often strapped down on gurneys or benches while cold water is poured over a cloth covering

intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears. “We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze. While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”
