BS, there was nothing included in Obama's speech indicating a request to change the law. The best the press has gotten from the WH is they are "considering" it.
Meanwhile, the House is moving ahead with it and have the support of a Dem from Texas.
the Obama plan for the illegal aliens is to spend more money turning them into voters.....

Where he gets all his information. From those voices in his head.
However, it is a fact that "Gang violence in Central America, especially in Honduras and El Salvador, is driving a substantial exodus to other countries throughout the region. In particular, teenagers in these countries are being recruited to join gangs; if they refuse, the gang will often retaliate against them and their families." Obama is working with Central America to curb gang violence.
Correct, aside from the Mexico and US the young children and teens are also going into Belize and Costa Rica. The smuggler/traffickers that are bringing them to the US are aware that the US will not turn them away. Even if the National Guard or the Regular Army was spread out along the border they would not turn those children away.

Sadly only about 10% to 20% of the children/teens are legitimately qualified to seek asylum__the rest are tag alongs that would be sent back immediately if the were Mexican.

If they were from Mexico they could be sent back across the border more easily. Obama's hands are tied by Bush's law which prevents the government from returning these children to their home countries without taking them into custody and eventually through a deportation hearing. The Obama is attempting to obtain more flexibility in the law but we all know how uncompromising Congress can be when it comes to aiding Obama in a crisis.
That law refers to children suspected of being involved in the sex trade. Only those children are covered under that law. Libtard!!!!!

I notice how these imbeciles continually claim "Obama ILLEGALLY ordered the Border Patrol to help illegals cross over" but can't back up their claim. All they can do is mimic hate talk radio. Not a brain between them.

And there wasn't welfare back then. Not enough people have jobs these days to afford the people already on welfare. If the scales tip, you can figure out the consequences. SS and Medicaid are in deep trouble. Nobody wants to tell you that though. And Democrats hold up a crucifix when the word "reform" is mentioned. Like it's a vampire or something.

Immigrant Surge Rooted in Law to Curb Child Trafficking
By CARL HULSEJULY 7, 2014
WASHINGTON — It was one of the final pieces of legislation signed into law by President George W. Bush, a measure that passed without controversy, along with a pension bill and another one calling for national parks to be commemorated on quarters.
“This is a piece of legislation we’re very proud to sign,” a White House spokesman, Tony Fratto, told reporters on Dec. 23, 2008, as the president put his pen to the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, named for a 19th-century British abolitionist.“This program has been very effective around the world in trying to stop trafficking in persons.”
Now the legislation, enacted quietly during the transition to the Obama administration, is at the root of the potentially calamitous flow of unaccompanied minors to the nation’s southern border.
Originally pushed by a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers as well as by evangelical groups to combat sex trafficking, the bill gave substantial new protections to children entering the country alone who were not from Mexico or Canada by prohibiting them from being quickly sent back to their country of origin.
Instead, it required that they be given an opportunity to appear at an immigration hearing and consult with an advocate, and it recommended that they have access to counsel. It also required that they be turned over to the care of the Department of Health and Human Services, and the agency was directed to place the minor “in the least restrictive setting that is in the best interest of the child” and to explore reuniting those children with family members.
The Obama administration says the law is partly responsible for tying its hands in dealing with the current influx of children. Officials have suggested that the White House might seek flexibility in the law’s requirements when it asks Congress to provide emergency funds to contend with the latest immigration crisis, a request that could come as early as Tuesday. About 52,000 minors without their parents have been caught at the Southwest border since October.
“Giving the secretary of homeland security additional authority and discretion that he can use to confront that situation more efficiently, making sure that we are acknowledging the humanitarian issues that are at stake while also enforcing the law, is a priority,” Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, said Monday.“It’s the priority of this administration, and if you listen to the public comments of Democrats and Republicans, it sounds like it’s a bipartisan priority.”

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who helped write the measure, said the White House does not need new power to act.“That law already provides the administration with flexibility to accelerate the judicial process in times of crisis,” she said.“The administration should use that flexibility to speed up the system while still treating these children humanely, with compassion and respect.”

On Capitol Hill, Democrats said they expected that the administration’s initial request for border money would not push for changes in the trafficking law but that the White House would try to work with relevant congressional committees to eventually win revisions.

Democrats have shown reluctance to endorse narrow immigration law changes after House Republicans balked at a much more sweeping overhaul and seem hesitant to tinker too much with the William Wilberforce Act.

In a recent letter to Speaker John A. Boehner, Republican of Ohio, Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic leader, said Congress must ensure that the provisions of the trafficking victims act,“which passed the House and Senate unanimously and was also signed into law by President Bush, are fully enforced, so that due process is provided to unaccompanied children and the safety and well-being of unaccompanied children is protected.”

Republicans, who are calling for changes that would make it easier to send them back, blame President Obama for the surge of children at the border, saying he provided a lure by instituting a program that deferred deportations for some immigrants who entered the nation illegally as children.

They say the effort to point to the Bush-era law is a meant to deflect attention from the administration and make both parties culpable.

Representative Jeff Fortenberry, a Nebraska Republican and a chief backer of the original bill, said multiple factors contributed to the crisis, including “exploitation of our laws, the ungoverned space in Central America, as well as the desperate poverty faced by those deciding to cross.”

“With all these factors in mind, it’s hard to think that today’s situation at the border can be directly attributed to a law that’s been in effect now for six years,” Mr. Fortenberry said.

Sorry, I tried. If you read the passage yourself, maybe it will explain itself better than I did.
But there really isn't a contradiction between the two you pointed out.
Just curious though. What do you think about ETs (without evoking Hollyweird's interpretations of them and fictionalizing movies about real people's encounters with them) and their connection to us?
I, myself, am extremely fascinated by all the evidence as well as the caliber and credibility of eye witnesses - astronauts, top retired military, experienced commercial pilots, former FAA directors, etc.,- not to mention the growing number of video clips from around the world - and entire cities seeing massive and mysterious UFOs flying over their city - like in Phoenix and China a few years ago.
It's getting harder to deny they're here than accept it and wonder why. Seems pretty clear to me they've been here since the beginning - even from evidence in the Old Testament.
Any thoughts on the subject?

I agree that the stock market is over inflated but I don't see zero interest rates as a hindrance to economic recovery other than spuring risk-taking behavior which is detrimental to senior citizens. This isn't a US issue. It is a global one.
