“Allowing them to remain here will only encourage the next group of individuals to undertake this very, very dangerous and life-threatening journey…and those who come must be sent back to demonstrate in no uncertain terms that risking your lives on the top of those trains and the ways that they are coming here, it’s not worth it.” – Texas Governor Rick Perry’s words before an HHS committee looking into the crisis at our southern border
And with those words kudos must go out to Governor Perry…a man of courage who stood strong and said what needed to be said as he echoed the words of what many of us believe…ship them all back including the children…period.
Saying that entering our country ILLEGALLY is both a humanitarian and a national security crisis, Perry’s recent testimony before the above said HHS committee held NOTHING back as he made it clear that we need to “Secure this border now.” Claiming the unending stream of unaccompanied children ILLEGALLY entering our country is a direct result of Obama’s failure to secure this border, Perry then went on to say…and rightfully so…that Obama’s recent changes to our immigration policy sent a message to any and all that if they send their children here they would be allowed to stay.
And why NOT as Obama sees them as NOTHING but future Democratic voters…as Obama sees them as party loyalists knowing full well that people don’t bite the hand that feeds them…as Obama knows that black Americans are starting to turn on him and the party as they see these ILLEGALS taking their jobs away…and how right they are.
Point blank…as these children are being loaded onto buses for disbursement throughout our country…with their destinations deliberately being within the 100-mile so-called ‘Constitution Free’ zones where Obama has made it so that they cannot be deported…those buses need to be turned around by the National Guard if need be… depositing these ILLEGALS back on the Mexican side of the border where they belong. In fact, NOT only has Governor Perry called for the deploying of at least 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to help with immigration enforcement while more U.S. Border Patrol agents are trained, but Michael McCaul, the chairman of the HHS committee and a Texas Republican, reiterated Perry’s need to send the National Guard forces “to free up Border Patrol agents so they can perform their primary mission, and that is securing the border.”
And Obama’s answer to their requests…his party’s answer to their requests…lobby the Republicans in the House to support enactment of his sweeping immigration overhaul bill.
NO…I don’t think so.
And so to date more than 52,000 children under 18 years of age…three times the number than were detained in 2012…have crossed into the U.S. unaccompanied since last October, with most coming in through the Rio Grande Valley region of Texas…and those are just the ones we can account for. Most of their journey started when they crossed easily into Mexico from its open southern border, and most are coming from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. Most easily work their way up through Mexico, and when apprehended claim they’re fleeing gang violence and poverty in their home countries, but pray tell how can four and five year olds know to flee anything…and YES children as young as that are crossing into our country unattended. And the bottom line is that their parents are using their children as an ‘anchor’…so to speak…banking on the fact that down the road the U.S. government will allow them…the parents…to eventually enter our country without due-process on the grounds that children need their parents.
But the truth is that these children must to be sent back to their parents post-haste NOT have their parents come here. And while Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said she was prepared to support funding…ain’t we lucky that Rep. Jackson Lee is prepared to spend more of our taxpayer dollars on criminals (remember, crossing our border ILLEGALLY does indeed make them criminals)…funding she claims would help expedite cases allowing them to move through immigration courts faster. And she added to her bloviations that quick deportations were NOT the answer, but I beg to differ as they indeed are.
“A massive deportation policy for children and a mandatory detaining for children is not a humane thing to do,” she said…typical Democrat response of course.
NO Rep. Jackson Lee…deportation IS exactly the humane thing to do as these ILLEGAL now criminal children belong with their parents NOT as wards of our states paid for with our taxpayer dollars. These children were willingly sent by their parents to perpetrate a criminal act…in their name I might add…against our country for their own gain…and they need to go.
Unfortunately there are laws in the U.S. that layout the proper and accepted care of ‘at-risk children’ which Obama and his administration considers these children to be. And sadly, these laws make no distinction between children of U.S. citizens and children who are here ILLEGALLY. So once here…and especially if they’re shipped to cities within the ‘100-mile zone’…neither the states nor the federal government can simply ship them back to where they came from without first knowing that the conditions where they will be shipped back to meet the minimum standards that would be required for a foster home in the U.S.
So it seems we’re stuck with these children as their mere presence in our country without parental supervision automatically qualifies and labels them as ‘at-risk children’, and all 50 states have specific laws in place that requires the states to step in as guardians until legal relatives are found. So now we have to feed, house, cloth, and educate them as we watch them rape our welfare system, our health care system, and watch them grow up take our jobs and vote Democratic. And all this lies at the feet of Barack HUSSEIN Obama who has allowed this to happen by tearing down our once in-place immigration system to lay the ground floor for his so-wanted blanket amnesty for the future party loyal.
But for now monies are needed to help protect and secure the Texas border at least enough to slow the what seems to be a never ending influx of ILLEGALS in addition to giving Texas a refund on the millions the state has already spent. An add into the mix that the state will be paying yet another $1.3 million per week to the Department of Public Safety to assist in border security through at least the end of the year if NOT longer on top of $500 million Texas has already spent since 2005 to help secure the border.. And along with this request Perry sent a letter inviting Obama to see the border crisis firsthand…and of course he declined.
But the bottom line in all this…and the only logical thing to do…would be to immediately seal the borders…lock them down completely so NO one gets across…NO one…and then send the ILLEGALS…both children and adults that we can account for…back to where they came from for while America is a generous and caring nation it is NOT America’s job to take care of those who by their very act of entering our country ILLEGALLY become criminals…after all we do have our own criminals…especially the one in the White House…to deal with.
However, with a much needed reality check here, the building of a secure fence along the entire southern border has had its cost estimated at $46 billion to build, so you just know it won’t get done anytime soon as that would mean Obama would have to cut his freebie and handout programs to our future Democratic voters along with cut funding to the muslim terrorist groups that he so loves…and you know he will do neither.
Such is life under Obama’s dictatorial regime…and it will only get worse…that sadly I can promise you…sigh…
