Number of Children Caught
Crossing U.S. Border Drops

Latin American Herald Tribune [Miami FL], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 8/8/2014 11:43:35 PM

WASHINGTON – The number of unaccompanied undocumented children apprehended on the southern border of the United States dropped in July to 5,508, compared with more than 10,000 in both May and June, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said. DHS said it was the first time this year that the number has been lower than in the previous month. “While the decrease in apprehensions in July is good news and reflects a positive trend that we hope continues, the current numbers are still higher than the number of apprehensions for children and adults with children during past years,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh

Comments:
Eventually, they run out of children.

That said, I have my doubts about DHS statistics - the citizens have been lied to repeatedly to ensure Obama´s political advantage. I don´t believe this.

Says right there, apprehensions are down. Given the way these bold devils parse words, one imagines the Border Patrol simply was told to stop apprehending quite so many "unaccompanied children."

Possibly the decline is due to summer heat. Or perhaps just phony numbers from DHS.

Obama and the Democrats failed to gain a political boost from their Children´s Crusade. They didn´t get an amnesty bill either. So I suspect they now want it out of the news until after the elections. The MSM will oblige.

If O really wants the fight he could have issued Executive Orders for amnesty. And he didn´t. But tomorrow is another day.

O.K. - so the number of "unaccompanied undocumented children" has dropped to FIVE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND EIGHT in July from the count of 10,000 in the month of May and 10,000 in the month of June - that information makes me sleep better......................probably why I wake at 4 a.m.

And are the young men with the funny hand gestures and the tatooed body parts counted as undocumented children? And just who is doing the counting?

And I don´t understand just what the Hate America people think they are accomplishing with all their malevolent and incompetent policies. Don´t they live here too?

number caught is not the same as the number of children who attempt and are successful in crossing the border.

The number caught requires some sort of effort by the Border Guard, who are busy just being nannies now.

Border Surge: Secretary of State John Kerry warns of a new surge of illegals, just as Central America is being hit by a new wave of epidemics. No doubt about it: President Obama´s open-borders policy is exposing us to disease, too. In a background press briefing at the U.N. last Tuesday, a senior State Department official said Secretary of State John Kerry told his counterparts from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico that the pause in minors coming across our southern border was temporary, and that "we have to use this time to put in place more efforts, greater efforts to

¡Viva el consumismo! Cuban perfume producers are capitalizing on socialist revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara´s endless marketing appeal — with the fresh scent of guerrilla warfare in a bottle. The new men´s cologne "Ernesto," which will be presented at a convention in Havana this week, goes to show that even if you fight and die for communism, your likeness might show up on the check-out line. The product will debut alongside another fragrance, "Hugo," in honor of late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Cuban biochemist Mario Valdes, who led the team that designed the scents, said the project was a "great challenge." "We didn´t want to create

US President Barack Obama called on Tuesday for the release of Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo López, and underscored the work of Berta Soler, head of Cuban dissenting organization Ladies in White. The statement was issued during a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative. "We stand in solidarity with those who are detained at this very moment," noted the US president as reported by AP. "In Venezuela, Leopoldo Lopez," said Obama before referring to other leaders in prison in places such as Burundi, Egypt, China, and Vietnam. "They deserve to be free. They ought to be released."

Naomi Klein is by all accounts a wonderful person – warm, low-key, modest, committed and enormously hard-working. She also looks terrific in a crisp white shirt, which is what she wore for a recent photo shoot for Vogue. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Vogue is interested in fashionable intellectuals, and right now there’s no intellectual more fashionable than Ms. Klein. She told Vogue that her new book, This Changes Everything, is “a book about climate change for people who don’t read books about climate change.” Ms. Klein and her new book are being written up everywhere.

The Liberal Agenda: On the heels of Sunday´s "People´s Climate Change" march came Monday´s "Flood Wall Street" demonstration, starring limousine liberal darling Naomi Klein. So who is Klein, and why is she such a hot ticket? Not since the 1980s, when Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua´s Marxist dictator, bought $3,000 sunglasses on Fifth Avenue during a U.N. General Assembly have we seen such a confluence of free-market hate and consumer hog-wallow. But the leaders of the Climate Change March and the "Flood Wall Street" Occupy reunion put left-wing hypocrisy on full display this week in their loathing for capitalism and all-too-eager enjoyment of its

SINGAPORE - Construction worker Prabakaran Chinnappa on Tuesday became the 18th person to be dealt with over last December´s Little India riot. The Indian national, 24, was sentenced to 31 months in jail and three strokes of the cane after pleading guilty to rioting, and abetting others to set fire to an ambulance. The court heard that for the first charge, Prabakaran had hit an empty police car repeatedly with a stick, and helped flip the vehicle onto its side. He also threw pieces of paper into the car after it had been set on fire to feed the flames,

Francisco Rodriguez, an economist with Bank of America Corp., was at a routine meeting with Venezuelan central bank officials last week when he sprung an unusual question on them: Can you show me your gold? He’d been itching to take a peek for years and now was the time to ask. With the government’s bonds sinking toward prices that indicate investors are bracing for the possibility of default, the country’s $15 billion of gold bars are crucial to ensuring debt payments are met. His first impression once inside the vaults? Those bars don’t take up a lot of room.

London´s gay community is facing a sexual health crisis as a result of "worsening" awareness of the dangers of unsafe sex. Whilst gay and bisexual men represent less than 4 percent of London´s population they are responsible for 84 percent of syphilis cases and 65 percent of gonorrhoea cases in the capital. A new study from Public Health England (PHE), reported on by Pink News, suggested that around a quarter of all reported cases of sexually transmitted infections (STI) are diagnosed in gay men. The figures – which relate to 2013 – will make worrying reading for public health professionals,

Labour has been sent into a panic after rumours circulated they might be beaten in the House of Commons by-election for the seat of Heywood and Middleton on 9th October. The poll was triggered when veteran Labour MP Jim Dobbin died earlier this month. For years the seat was considered to be ´safe´ by Labour, and had a majority of nearly six thousand in 2010. However, the party are worried the UKIP surge may still rob them of the seat, which has led to the Labour whips desperately sending MPs to the area. According to the Sun, senior officials in the Labour

Britain´s monarch is famously above politics, but Prime Minister David Cameron was overheard saying Queen Elizabeth had “purred” with happiness when he phoned her to inform her Scotland had voted to reject independence. In New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly, TV crews accidentally picked up remarks Cameron made to Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of the city, which are likely to embarrass Queen Elizabeth and the British leader. “She purred down the line. I´ve never heard someone so happy,” Cameron, whose Conservative Party campaigned for Scotland to stay in the United Kingdom, said of the Queen, according to

BUENOS AIRES -- Argentine President Cristina Fernandez on Monday will meet bondholder and billionaire financier George Soros, who is suing a U.S. bank caught in the middle of the country´s latest debt default, a government minister said. The meeting comes as Fernandez´s leftist government struggles to kick-start growth and contain runaway consumer prices after failing to complete a June interest payment to Soros and other holders of bonds restructured after a previous default. Soros´ portfolio also includes a 3.5 percent stake in Argentina´s state-controlled energy firm YPF (YPFD.BA). Buenos Aires has frequently cited the Hungarian-born magnate´s investments in the country as a

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat.

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new

Milton Wolf, the tea party candidate who battled Sen.

But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must first agree to caucus with the Senate GOP if he were to defeat Roberts in the general election. The two men were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon at Orman’s house in Olathe, Kansas., just outside of Kansas City, according to two people familiar with the matter. One person said Orman’s team sought the meeting but there was no
